What are the benefits of apple cider vinegar?

There are a heap of benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar which Dr Josh Axe explains really well here. From its ability to help with acne when used as a face wash or it's  use as a natural deodorant there are lot's of ways to use apple cider vinegar!
The main reasons we love Apple Cider Vinegar is that it is low in total sugars, supports gut health and helps lower blood sugars. 

Should I be taking Collagen Peptides every day?

We believe that Collagen Peptides are an optimal supplement that supports your overall health and wellbeing, especially as we age. As we age our collagen levels start to decline (from as early as our 20's!). Collagen is the most abundant protein in our body, which supports our skin, hair, nail, bone, joint, muscle and gut health - topping up your natural collagen levels with a pure collagen supplement is key for longevity. We recommend taking 2 tablespoons of our Hunter & Gather Collagen per day. The following articles may be of interest to you too: 

I am following a Keto Lifestyle, can I add MCT oil to this recipe?

If you want to increase the fat content of this recipe, then adding MCT oil to this recipe is a great idea! Our Hunter & Gather MCT oil is made with only organic coconuts and is triple steam distilled. We use absolutely no palm oil or rapeseed oil in the making of our MCT oil. We recommend 15ml of MCT oil per day. 
Once you have warmed the recipe in the pan, add the collagen and MCT oil at the same time and using a handheld whisk, blend together until slightly frothy. You can also just pour the MCT oil onto the top once in the mug, however this will sit on the top of the water like a pool of oil (some people like it this way though).
