What is Collagen & What Does It Do For Me?Published:
You may have heard people talking about collagen and the different ways to use it. You’re probably thinking what the heck this even is? Another supplement you need to incorporate into your daily routine to stay feeling healthy?! We’re here to tell you what collagen really is and what it can do for you!
“Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body, accounting for about one-third of its protein composition. It’s one of the major building blocks of bones, skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments”. (Healthline). As you age, your body starts to produce less collagen which is where collagen supplements come into play. There are different types of collagen and different ways to incorporate it into your life, from skincare serums to collagen supplements such as powder. So now that you know what collagen is, you’re probably wondering the benefits of taking it! Taking collagen daily has shown to help with skin, hair and nail health, making them stronger. Collagen can also potentially help relieve joint pain and prevent bone loss. It also can help strengthen muscles and improve your heart health when taken properly!
There are two common kinds of Collagen- Marine Collagen and Bovine Collagen. We use Bovine Collagen in our Keto Collagen Coffee. Because bovine collagen is sourced from cows, our product is not vegan (but it is dairy free!).
What does it taste like?
Collagen can come in different forms and flavors. Collagen typically doesn’t have a taste (or maybe a slight bone broth taste depending on what brand/product you’re using), unless the product is flavored. Many people add collagen to their coffee, water, yogurt and more! Our product is not just collagen, but coffee too (in addition to many other things) so this powder will have a sweet and creamy mocha flavor. You can mix it with water or milk, or blend it in with your smoothie! This isn’t your average cup of jo’!
When collagen needs to be incorporated into your self care routine
You may be wondering if taking collagen at a certain time will affect its effectiveness. The short answer is no, the time that you take it won’t really make a difference. Some say it’s best to take in the morning to help your gut health during the day, while others think taking it at night can help your quality of sleep. In our case, we recommend taking our collagen powder in the morning or mid-day because it has 100mg of caffeine to keep you energized as well as MCTs and adaptogens to help increase your mood and focus.
What makes our collagen powder different from the others
Our collagen powder is unique because in addition to the 10g of collagen protein, we mixed it with 100mg of fair trade Colombian coffee, adaptogens from Four Sigmatic, and MCT oil derived from coconuts! This powder really is your one-stop-shop for your daily coffee and is anything but ordinary. You’d be surprised that there is 0g of sugar in the product considering it has a sweet mocha taste. PLUS it’s low carb (only 4g!) and 100 calories per serving.
