Six years ago, when Tracie Fountain, our incredible nutritional counselor, mentioned “hydrolyzed gelatin”, I said, “SAY WHAT?” I had never heard of it before, let alone know what it actually did. But, Tracie is one smart woman and had been seeing incredible results in her clients’ lives for many years with this amazing protein. So over the course of the past 6 years, hydrolyzed gelatin (also known as hydrolyzed collagen) has become a staple of all the menus and eating plans that my clients receive and the stories shared have been incredible.

About a year ago I started to ask the question, would it be possible for Fit Moms for Life to have its own brand of collagen? As I began to research where it came from and how it is created, the path to getting our own seemed nearly impossible.
My standards were high…
- Must be from pasture raised cows
- Gluten free
- MSG free
- Allergenic free
- Dissolves in anything
- Must meet the highest standards of quality
Since there are only a couple companies in the world that source hydrolyzed collagen, it came down to a lot of hard work, persistence, and a little luck. But… We got it!
I would like to introduce Fit Moms For Life Hydrolyzed Collagen (gelatin). This is going to only be offered exclusively on Amazon for now, with FREE shipping for prime users. The reason why it will be exclusively on Amazon for awhile (at the expense of almost all FM4L profits) is that my vision is very big with this product. I want it to help bring relief to millions of families around the country. In order to do that, we have to make sure that people can find it. And the way Amazon works is a popularity game. The more sales and 5 star reviews we can get, along with stories of how it has helped, the quicker we will reach the top of the search engines. Once Amazon users begin to order from us, they will be introduced to the Fit Moms for Life community and their lives will be impacted much further.
So, I am willing to take nearly all profits off the table and start by selling through Amazon in order to make a bigger difference in the world. Cool? It gets even better. Fit Moms for Life has created what I believe to be the first ever hydrolyzed collagen cookbook to ever exist. I have enlisted the help of Tracie and Hallie, two incredible chefs and collagen users, to share 30 delicious recipes, all containing this powerful protein powder. You get the cookbook for FREE! That is right, part of the perk for you ordering the Fit Moms for Life Hydrolyzed Collagen, is that you will receive a digital copy of the cookbook.
I want to make this a no brainer… As soon as this product is ready to go live (on Monday morning, at 10AM CST!), we will send out the Amazon link and a $6 off coupon that you can use and share with any of your friends. It is a little way of saying thanks for supporting FM4L while improving your joints and health.
Bad News… On Monday, Amazon will have only 240 containers in stock and they will sell out very quickly. (Shipments were delayed by the recent snow storms in the Midwest and Northeast, which is why we cannot open up sales until Monday.) So, once we open up our Amazon store on Monday, February 9 at 10AM CST, you won’t want to delay! We will send you an email on Monday morning letting you know exactly when the product goes live and you can place your order.

Please leave a comment and post any questions that you have about collagen—I will be reading through all of these myself. Watch for my answers to show up in your inbox this weekend! In case you missed my last blog post, here are just a couple of the over 1,000 incredible stories from people using hydrolyzed gelatin in their own lives.
“By sheer accident I came upon this product when I was on another blog. Checked out on Amazon to see reviews. Very positive so I ordered it. Love this product. My hair is healthier, my nails stronger and I finally feel relief from joint pain. I am 55 years old and nothing else has worked. The slight appetite suppress is just another plus. Pure quality.”
“I’ve been using this product for exactly one week and I can already tell the difference in my big toe joints where I suffer from osteoarthritis. Typically, I’d pop 2 Aleve EVERY morning to minimize the joint pain. I’ve not taken any in a week! The product is operating as advertised and I encourage folks to use this product if they are suffering joint pain and discomfort. It works!”
“FINALLY a clean protein that doesn’t bother any of my allergies! The best protein i have found, and i have been looking for years. if you have issues with cow dairy and soy, it can be very tough to get a quality protein powder. sure, there are rice and pea and hemp… they just weren’t very effective for me. until i found this, the best i could find for my system was hemp protein. This stuff is amazing. no taste, dissolves quickly in cold. Can be used in hot, too. Because there is no taste, you can put it in anything. Feel like hot tea with lemon and honey in the morning? Toss some protein in there. An additional benefit of this protein is that your nails and hair will get noticeably stronger and in better condition.”
“Life changing. I have suffered on and off from planar fasciitis. My pain is gone when I take it. I also suffered from SPD my last pregnancy and after giving birth it helped restore me back to normal faster. Added bonus is my hair is thicker and very shiny, and my nails grow fast and strong.”
“I started taking this last year when I noticed I was having “cracking” in all my joints, even the joints in my sternum area when I would stretch-uncomfortable & weird! I am only 37, so too soon for this to be happening! I researched products and decided to try it. I read the reviews on it & have to agree this product is great. I have no more cracking in my knees, shoulders, anywhere! I typically just pour a fair amount into my morning coffee. I would definitely recommend buy this if you are having any joint issues regardless of age. It definitely helps! Another bonus is it lasts a very long time. I can get a container of this to last around 4-5 months minimum and that’s even with my daily generous usage. Also, it does not affect the taste of whatever you may drinking & is supposed to have skin benefits as well!”
