Vital Proteins and Meo Energetics : A Review + Giveaway!

vital proteins collagen

One of the most asked questions I receive is, “Katie, what supplements do you use?”

When it comes to any product I use, especially supplements, I have high, high standards (read: I’m super picky).

For me, in order to trust a company and support their products, they have to pass my 3 Point Test:




There are companies that I love and pass this test with f l y i n g colors!

Two of which you’ve already read in the title of this blog:

Vital Proteins and Meo Energetics

These two companies have proven themselves over and over again to me, both personally and professionally. Both have been major contributors to my healing journey, both have fantastic customer service, and both provide top notch quality products.

Vital Proteins:

First, the collagen company that is sweeping the health and wellness industry: Vital Proteins


“Our products are natural sources of essential proteins, sourced from pasture-raised cows in Brazil and New Zealand and wild-caught fish in Hawaii. Why go so many extra miles for these sources? Because there’s nothing more important than one’s health, and we believe the body needs and deserves high-quality building blocks for life’s adventures.”

Yes and Amen, Vital Proteins!

I pulled that quote directly off of VP’s website. I first learned about Vital Proteins back when I started my gut healing journey back in 2014. Their products weren’t available near me and me being a grandma, (who will go to great lengths not to order things off the internet) I wasn’t able to experience their products until I became an NTP and created a wholesale account. I ordered some plain collagen peptides for myself and after one month I was sold.

I had used collagen products for over a year previous, from another brand, but it wasn’t until using my Vital Proteins collagen that I began to see a significant change in my hair, skin, nails and digestion! Vital Proteins was changing my health from the inside out!

Because I’d seen results for myself, I felt confident to begin offering Vital Proteins out of my office and recommending to clients. Our pantry is now stocked with Vital Proteins and I will not ever be without my beloved blue containers! Keep reading for a list of their other products I use and love as well.


You read it for yourself, Vital Proteins believes in quality. Their peptides and other products are sourced from grass-fed and responsibly sourced animals. They choose quality and ingredients that are best going to serve you. For example, I love that so many of their products include a little kick of probiotics! You all know I am all about gut health.

Personal Results:

As you read above, the most significant improvements came to me in the form of a clearer complexion, stronger nails, and better digestion. In my opinion, this isn’t a product you can take off and on for a few weeks and see significant results, it’s a product to use very regularly and for some time…but believe me, the results are worth the commitment!

Favorite Product:

Hands down, the unflavored Collagen Peptides!

They’re so versatile! You can put them in anything from your coffee, to baking, to lemon water!

Also, the unflavored Collagen Peptides are the least expensive and the product I’m most able to budget into my daily use.

Other Products I use:

Beef Liver Capsules

Organic Whey Protein

Collagen + Whey Protein (in Vanilla or Chocolate)

Lavender Lemon Beauty Water

I have yet to try the NEW flavor of collagen peptides, Dark Chocolate Raspberry, but! Vital Proteins was amazing enough to send me a container for you all! You can skip to the bottom to learn more.

Meo Energetics:

Secondly, a brand that I was ecstatic to try from the moment Lauren made the announcement: Meo Energetics.


“Meo Energetics was inspired by this discovery that energy can heal the brain. Our essential oil blends energetically support specific brain regions.

Our products are clinically-formulated by John Tjenos, an innovative holistic practitioner and nutrition educator. Early on in his practice, he realized that brain care was the missing piece in modern health care.”
Meo Energetics is a company I’ve absolutely fallen in love with. The above quote tells you a little about their products, but visiting their website will give you the whole story.
In a nutshell, Meo Energetics isn’t your standard MLM Essential Oil company. They combine sustainably sourced oils and flower essences, bottle them in energetically intentional packaging, and specifically design each oil to interact with particular parts of the brain. These oils work together to retrain your brain. It’s absolutely fascinating (and I’ll encourage you, again, to go check out their website).
Vagal Tone is essentially their “starter oil” and has impacted my healing journey significantly.
I’m a broken record, but their website will give you the full details; in the meantime, I’ll give you my short definition.
Vagal Tone transitions the body into a parasympathetic state. A parasympathetic state is absolutely necessary for digestion (amongst other things.) You can read more about my personal results using Vagal Tone below.


Meo is very intentional and headstrong (pun intended) when it comes to quality. They are adamant to only take what nature can provide and of the best quality there is. Their oils come in indigo glass bottles so that zero sunlight can penetrate the glass and affect the oils. They use the best of the best and it’s evident with one glance.

Oh! And not to mention, they provide education cards with every product!

Personal Results:

I wish I could accurately explain to you the personal results I’ve seen with Vagal Tone. With one application I can feel my body take a couple notches down. I use Vagal Tone before each meal, before bed, and in times when I feel my body shifting into fight-or-flight mode. When I use Vagal Tone I feel as if my body relaxes before mealtime (ideal!) and my food is better able to be digested.

I sporadically use Vagal Tone (along with Advanced Focus) before my yoga practice, as well. I am better able to engage my mind in the practice, meaning the benefits seem amplified and continue to last throughout the day.

Favorite Product:

Vagal Tone!

I’ve seen the most improvements from this oil. While I’ve seen results with the other two oils I’ve used, Vagal Tone has been significant for me (which could also be because my digestive tract is the most out of balance part of my body due to Celiac’s Disease.)

Meo Energetics sent me a Vagal Tone to giveaway to one of you! Read below for the details 🙂

Other Products I Use:

Advanced Focus (love this before a workout, writing a blog, or meeting a client)

Neuro Reboot (helps to clear energy in empathic people like myself)

Here ya go! (But please educate yourself on the products I’m giving away! You’ll appreciate them so much more 🙂

As you can see, I am a major fangirl.

So much so, that when I decided to do a giveaway in celebration of my one year blogging anniversary, I knew the two companies I would reach out to to hopefully sponsor!

Both companies are amazing and were generous enough to send me one product a piece for you all, my awesome NK community!

To enter the giveaway, the rules are simple and can be found on my Instagram page. This is an INSTAGRAM only giveaway so you’ll need to have an account and be following me (@naturallykatientp)

I’ll be giving away one of Vital Proteins newest products, their Dark Chocolate Blackberry Collagen Peptides and my favorite Meo Energetics product, Vagal Tone.

The giveaway is open to all US residents and I cannot wait to ship out the packages!

If you’re unable to enter or aren’t chosen to be the winner, you can contact me to  place your Vital Proteins or Meo Energetics order. They are 2 of the very few brands I trust enough to sell out of my office.

If you have any other questions about these two companies, feel free to reach out!

Thank y’all for reading and best of luck in the giveaway!

In love and health,
