5 Easy Ways to Give Collagen a Go

July 5, 2018

Everyone is raving about the positive effects of collagen supplements on skin, hair, and nails, but maybe you just haven’t had time to think about adding another healthy routine to your day. Here are five easy and totally worth it ways to get you going with collagen.

Coffee

Bulletproof Collagen Coffee is all the rave, but why? Collagen can help to tighten skin, improve the look of cellulite, joint recovery, supports hair and nail growth, and even improves gut health and digestion. So why haven’t we been adding this to our morning coffee all along you ask? Truthfully, we don’t know.

The basic foundations of the now infamous Bulletproof Coffee include:

  • A fresh cup of joe
  • MCT oil or Coconut Oil
  • Ghee or Unsalted Grass-fed Butter
  • Collagen Peptides
  • *Additional natural sweeteners like honey or Stevia if you wish

So what’s with the desire to blend collagen, oil, and fats into your morning coffee? Adding MCT or Coconut Oil to your coffee helps to lessen the bitter taste of the coffee beans while also kick starting your metabolism by giving your body a healthy boost of fat in the morning. Ghee or Unsalted Grass-fed Butter acts as a healthy source of fat, Omega 3-fatty acids, and is an added source of Vitamin D. Adding in two scoops of Collagen Peptides just adds to the long list of what your morning coffee is now capable of. So the next time you find yourself with an extra five minutes in the morning, add your new favorite ingredients to the blender, pour in your fresh brewed coffee, blend and enjoy the frothy goodness!

Smoothies

You can put this stuff in anything! Whether you’re kick starting your protein for the day in a green smoothie or looking for a mid-day treat that also stimulates digestion, adding two scoops of collagen peptides to your favorite smoothie recipe is a win.

Since collagen helps in joint recovery and boosts the production of connective tissue, it’s a no brainer after a hefty workout at the gym. Add two scoops to your post-workout smoothie or simply mix with water.
