Your New Secret Weapon to Reversing Signs of Aging



Collagen, the body’s most abundant protein, is crucial in maintaining healthy joints, skin, bones, and hair.

Unfortunately, natural collagen production declines with age, causing unwanted signs of aging, including sagging skin, wrinkles, brittle nails, hair, and joint pain.

Fortunately, NativePath’s Certified Grass-Fed Collagen Powder unlocks the body’s potential to combat aging and promote overall wellness.

Collagen acts as an antioxidant, which helps to fight off harmful free radicals and repair previous skin damage, leading to a reduction in dark spots.

Women between the ages of 35 to 55, who took hydrolyzed collagen for four and eight weeks, reported better skin elasticity and moisture levels without any negative side effects.

Sick of Swiping?


Dating apps are a merry-go-round of possibility and overwhelm. And most of us are nauseated from the spinning. Whether you’re looking for long-term love or a casual hookup, connecting with a cutie isn’t as easy as it’s marketed to be. More often than not, these platforms instead feel like a pill we need to swallow if we’re seeking romance in the modern jungle of singleness.

So we download. We give it a go, burn out, delete, redownload a few months later, and the cycle continues.

I’ve done my time in the trenches with the usual suspects of Hinge, Bumble, Coffee Meets Bagel, and a slew of others with nothing more to show for it than a few short-term flings, a tally of subpar first dates, and calluses on my thumbs from endless messaging.

Riggins pet of the week

Riggins was named after THE heartthrob Tim Riggins of Friday Night Lights — and he has the ego and looks to prove it.

His parents spend more money on his grooming and food than they do on their own (which explains why he is much cuter than them). He had been used to being an only child for 3 years but has recently welcomed a human baby brother into his world; he is all things protective and overbearing as well as jealous.

If he’s not on the clock as neighborhood watch or looking like a human in his armchair, he is stealing toilet paper rolls, food, or his brother’s toys to get our attention. He is practically perfect in every way!

💌 We’re huge pet lovers at The Assist and want to feature a pet each week — fill out this form for your fur baby to be featured!
