Best of Beauty: Tonic

Eating healthy and getting all the nutrients you need is incredibly difficult, especially around the holidays, when good food and sweet treats are in abundance and the liquor is flowing.

That’s why beauty company Tonic exists. Tonic Products was founded by two college roommates who became interested in collagen as a natural source of health and healing. Since the beginning, Tonic has been woman-owned, operated, created and supported by wives, mothers and working professionals. And no one understands how important health is – and how few hours there are in a day – than working mothers!

Readers of my blog know that I’ve been trying to grow out my hair. Collagen and biotin are those key ingredients that we all know we need to double up on when trying to grow our hair out. However, collagen is also responsible for renewing cells and maintaining the strength and elasticity of bones, joints, tendons, skin, eyes, internal organs and nails, something I definitely didn’t know!

Tonic’s Beauty Tonic is a flavorless, odorless, all-natural proprietary blend of collagen types 1 and III. Together, these types of collagen make skin radiant, hair long and nails strong, while firming skin. Collagen is also known to prevent and reverse the formation of wrinkles, cellulite and stretch marks. I’ve never heard of drinking collagen, though, only applying it topically.

With Beauty Tonic, you simply mix a stick of powder into your drink (like you would mix Crystal Light powder with water). I mixed a stick into my favorite Trader Joe’s apple juice.

Nowhere on the package does it specify that the drink has to be HOT. When I mixed the powder in with a cold beverage, the powder wouldn’t mix well, and congealed into weird clumps on the side of my glass. Luckily for me, weird textures in food and drinks don’t bother me, so I just ate the powder clumps anyway (and it has absolutely zero flavor, anyway). Next time, though, I’ll try mixing it in tea or hot cooca.

Beauty Tonic is also gluten free, non-GMO, paleo-friendly, soy free and dairy free.

There is also Traditional Tonic (bone broth) and Gym and Tonic for gym rats. Both those items are derived from animals, so vegetarians and vegans beware.
