How to Use Vanilla Collagen Coffee Creamer in Your Coffee

Collagen coffee creamer is the latest trend in healthy living. It's a popular form of collagen that provides many benefits without a supplement. Adding collagen creamer to your morning cup of joe can help you get better skin, healthier joints, and overall health.

But how do you use it? Here, we'll provide an overview of the basics so you can add collagen creamer to your coffee or tea.

Is It Safe to Add Collagen Coffee Creamer to My Coffee?

The short answer is, yes, collagen creamer is safe to add to your coffee. The creamer comes from natural ingredients, such as grass-fed collagen peptides and coconut milk powder. It's also sugar-free, gluten-free, and non-GMO.

If you prefer to enjoy the unleaded version of coffee, add collagen creamer to your decaf coffee. It adds a rich creaminess without the added calories or sugar of many typical creamers so you can feel confident adding it to your morning cup of joe, knowing it won't negatively impact your health. For the long answer, let's discuss how manufacturers make collagen creamer.

How is Collagen Creamer Made?

As the name implies, collagen creamer is collagen peptides derived from bovine animals and fish. You can combine collagen peptides with other natural ingredients to create a creamy cup of coffee. Collagen products like this are an abundant protein source that's easily absorbed.

Collagen peptides

Combining collagen and other ingredients in your coffee results in a product with all the benefits of a supplement. Plus, you get the added benefit of having extra protein and a delicious, creamy beverage in your coffee. When collagen is heated to 160 degrees Fahrenheit, it transforms into gelatin, the delightful substance responsible for the wiggly nature of Jell-O.

Gelatin, or "denatured" collagen, comprises collagen bundles broken down into simpler collagen molecules. Most collagen powders come from dehydrating gelatin into a powder form. Collagen powders undergo hydrolysis, which reduces the proteins into amino acid chains called hydrolyzed collagen peptides or hydrolyzed collagen. Collagen peptide powders easily dissolve in hot liquids without forming a gel.

What Happens When You Add Grass-Fed Collagen Creamer to Your Coffee?

Nothing other than you get a nice dose of creamy goodness in addition to your coffee. While there are some rumors about the heat from hot coffee denaturing collagen, this is not true. The heat from your coffee will not denature the collagen peptides.

In addition to the flavor and texture of the cream, adding collagen creamer also provides some health benefits. Plus, since it comes from natural ingredients like grass-fed dairy and collagen peptides, it's safe to add to your coffee.

Why Add Collagen Coffee Creamer to Your Coffee?

Collagen creamer is a great way to get the health benefits of collagen peptides in your daily morning routine. It's no secret that collagen has many benefits for both our skin and joints. Adding it to your coffee boosts natural collagen levels in your body and increases skin elasticity. Though collagen creamer is a powder, you'll still get a creamer-like consistency without adding flavor.

Collagen health benefits

As the most abundant protein in our bodies, collagen has many health benefits. Collagen peptides have anti-inflammatory properties and help improve joint pain, skin elasticity, digestive issues, and even boost muscle growth. Collagen, a structural protein in our connective tissue, is abundantly present in our skin, bones, joints, ligaments, and tendons. It serves a vital purpose in maintaining our skin health and the functioning of our joints and muscles.

By our mid-twenties, our collagen levels begin to decline, resulting in wrinkles, saggy skin, dull hair, and achy joints. Fortunately, collagen supplements can replenish our bodies’ natural collagen reserves. These supplements benefit both men and women equally, providing incredible results.

Use with a collagen supplement

Suppose you're already taking a collagen supplement. In that case, adding collagen coffee creamer to your daily routine can be the perfect way to maximize the benefits. Combining collagen peptides from different sources boosts collagen production for self-repair and better health. If you're trying to boost your energy for the day, you should get your collagen fix at breakfast time.
