It is unfortunate that after the age of 25, our skin and body starts to lose its ability to produce collagen, the building block and foundation of skin and other tissues. Collagen is a super-protein that makes up over 75% of your skin, hair, nails, bones, and muscles. As collagen starts to decrease it shows up in ways that you notice such as aging skin, osteoarthritis, muscle fatigue, aches and pains, illnesses, etc. Without these gatekeepers of hydration and moisture in your skin and hair cells, you may have started seeing things like wrinkles, dark circles, and thinning hair. So just what are you supposed to do to help stay healthy and keep collagen in your body not to mention add anti-oxidants and probiotics (which are in the digestive system and help maintain a healthy balance of the body's immune system)? You take supplements! I have discovered the latest and I would say the best supplements that are on the market right now. 

Crushed Tonic is a company that makes a supplement in the form of marine collagen peptides, probiotics, biotin and the addition of superfoods to help ward off aging, keeping skin looking young and healthy, to keep the body feeling young and healthy and to make you feel young and healthy. I was lucky enough to try a sample pack of four flavors and next I am going to try my favorite flavor for a whole month to see how it makes me feel and look. What makes these supplements so special you ask? 

Drinking marine collagen daily for 2-4 weeks is clinically proven to replenish you at the cellular level for stronger skin and thicker hair. And we all know that when we don’t feel our best, we don’t look so great either. Which is why they  formulated their collagen drinks with other healthful ingredients (such as probiotics, biotin, and antioxidants-packed superfoods), to benefit not just your skin and hair, but your overall health:

  • probiotics (live cultures that help balance the good and bad bacteria in your gut by supporting the excretion of radical toxins from your systems)
  • biotin (a type of vitamin that helps metabolize energy more efficiently and supports growth of thicker hair, glowing skin and stronger nails)
  • flavor-packed superfoods, such as turmeric / matcha / lucuma (see "flavors" tab for more information on each superfood)
All of these ingredients, combined together, have been clinically proven to strengthen and optimize your skin, hair and health from within.

Testimonial by Serena Kerrigan:

The Crushed Tonic Sampler Kit contains the following: 4 crushes (1 matcha crush, 1 turmeric crush, and 2 original crushes). Each crush has a base ingredient of collagen, probiotics and biotin, and is flavored with various delicious superfoods for both taste and function. For example, the turmeric crush will be great in alleviating inflammation of the body, while the matcha crush gives you a boost in mental focus. The original flavor was designed to be added to already flavored drinks, but its flavor (lucuma flavor) is great in water with just almond milk. Personally, my favorite is the turmeric crush. I have a lot of inflammation in my body because of osteoarthritis and chronic pain so I like to drink this one. Although you are supposed to drink it in water, I put in smoothies and find the taste doesn't show through. This way I get the superfoods/antioxidants/probiotics/collagen and get my vitamins together. Each crush has the following stats:
  • 45 calories 
  • 10 g of protein per crush
  • gluten-free
  • dairy-free
  • non gmo
  • no added sugars
  • sustainably sourced tilapia collagen
  • Made in the USA
  • clinically proven
Yes, these have been clinically proven to work. Below I'll show you the results of two studies that were done with the Crushed Tonic flavors and you can see the results for yourself. 

How To Create Super Soft, Smooth Model Skin With Crushed Tonic:

Clinical Study Part A 
(40 participants, females around the age of 55, and 12 weeks)
Using a cutometer, (a skin elasticity meter that analyzes skin's elasticity by measuring the time and quality of skin's ability to return to the original state after stretching and pulling it), respondents reported:
1. 18% increase in skin firmness
2. 27.2% decrease in skin elasticity
3. 22.8% increase in skin hydration

Clinical Study Part B 
(40 participants, females around the age of 55, and 12 weeks)
By measuring the shadows created by one's wrinkles pre and post study, surveyed respondents reported a significant decrease in wrinkles (average of -9.73%) by week 12.

Focus Group 
(50 respondents, 4 weeks)
After drinking Crushed Tonic everyday for 4 weeks:
97% saw improvements in their skin, such as:
1. Increase in skin hydration and firmness
2. Decrease in look of under-eye dark circles
3. Reduced wrinkles and enlarged pores
94% saw improvements in their hair, such as:
1. Thicker hair
2. Stronger hair
3. Boost in hair growth
100% saw improvements in their overall health, such as:
1. Quicker muscle recovery
2. Stronger joints and bones
3. Improvement in metabolism
4. Improved digestion
5. Improved immune health
Crushed Tonic has been seen and reviewed in the following magazines and websites: Allure, Refinery29, Coveteur, Well + Good and Fab Fit Fun
After I do the 30 day program of the Turmeric crushes I will again post on how I feel. Hopefully I will have better skin, less inflammation in my body and my hair, skin and nails will be radiant. I am really looking forward to trying out this regimen. I like these a lot.
