The Ultimate Mother's Day Gift Guide: 5 Gifts Your Mother Will Thank You For
Celebrate your mom with these 5 high-quality collagen supplements to upgrade her wellness ritual, skincare routine, and full-body health.
May 9th marks yet another Mother’s Day.
A day to celebrate your one-of-a-kind mom and all that she does for you. A day for her to soak up all the adoration you give her. And a day to enhance her wellness ritual...
I’m sure mom will forever cherish the knick-knacks, cards, and flowers you shower her with every year, but this year demands something different.
Something healthy, youthful, and radiant…
Read on to get our top hand-selected products that your mom will love, learn why she needs them on hand at all times, and discover why collagen may be the most vital thing that’s missing from her daily routine.
But First, What Is Collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body—making up a third of the protein in the body and nearly 80% of the protein in the skin. With that much protein, it’s safe to say that collagen is what keeps our body intact and running like a well-oiled machine.
That’s why collagen is often referred to as the glue that holds the body together.
Here’s the catch, though: Your body’s collagen production naturally declines with age.
*Cues orchestra of tiny violins*
Yes, it’s sad, but it is preventable.
It’s preventable with a high-quality, grass-fed collagen supplement.

Why Is Collagen Important?
Because your body’s natural collagen production begins to decline as early as in your 20s, it’s up to you to step up and save the day.
To keep your body functioning optimally, supplement with grass-fed collagen daily. It’s as simple as that.
If you’re just starting out in your collagen journey, our professional recommendation is to go through a “collagen loading” phase where you consume 20-40 milligrams (or 2-4 scoops) of collagen per day for 6 to 8 weeks.
After that phase, you’ll enter into a “collagen maintenance” phase. This consists of 10-20 mg (or 1-2 scoops) of collagen daily, indefinitely.
This will strengthen your skin—giving you a more youthful appearance, strengthen your bones, repair your muscles, restore your GI tract, and more.
The Bottom Line
Dedicating a day to mothers nationwide began over 100 years ago in 1907.
The idea began when a woman named Anna Jarvis held a small memorial service for her own mother on May 12, 1907.
And with that, it became somewhat of a tradition, until President Woodrow Wilson made it a national holiday in 1914.
Honoring mom should go further than a card and bouquet of flowers. Get her something that will enrich her life and make her feel ten years younger.
Once she starts her daily regimen of collagen, probiotics, and Native Defense, be expecting a celebratory phone call.
She’ll definitely be calling you her favorite from now on.
