It turns out that going from working at NASA to launching a very popular collagen company may not be as big a step as you think. Today’s guest is Kurt Seidensticker, the founder of Vital Proteins, one of the biggest companies offering collagen products on the market today and we might be their biggest fans. Their grass fed whey and marine collagen products can make a huge difference in the health of your skin and nails and digestion, even your joints, which is great for those of us who work out a lot.

Collagen seems like a miracle product until you really learn more about it and then it makes a lot of sense why it does all of the great things that it does. But in any case, we’re a little bit obsessed with them. We are talking to Kurt today about the company, why collagen is so great, and he teases us with a bunch of new products that he will be showing at Paleo f(x) this year.
