Can You Put Collagen in Coffee?

Adding Collagen to Your Coffee

More and more people are taking collagen. Its potential benefits include counteracting the loss of skin elasticity and hydration that comes with ageing, helping to relieve joint pain, and preventing bone loss. As the number of people taking collagen supplements increases, so do the ways in which they take it. A rising trend is to mix premium liquid collagen with coffee. But does this work?

Does heat affect the potency of collagen?

If you add collagen to a hot beverage like coffee, you might be worried about what effect the heat has. Generally speaking, when exposed to high temperatures, proteins can get denatured as their structure alters slightly.

Collagen peptides are normally made by using solutions based on acids or alkaline to separate the collagen from animal hides. After this, the hides are then soaked in heated water to extract the maximum amount of collagen peptides. The water is heated to 190ºF, or 88ºC.

In other words, collagen supplements currently on sale have already been denatured a little as this process helps your digestive tract to absorb the supplement. However, this doesn't significantly detract from the potency of the peptides. But, if the proteins are subjected to higher temperatures, it could result in further degradation that would render them ineffective.

Benefits of Adding Collagen to Your Coffee

The benefits of adding collagen to your coffee are genuinely remarkable. Collagen is a fibrous protein found in skin, tendons, and cartilage. It binds tissue cells, adding elasticity to the skin.

Our bodies stop producing collagen around age 20-30. As we age, collagen continues to weaken. Each year after, we start losing about 1% of our collagen levels. By age 40, the collagen you originally had has dropped dramatically.

While collagen can be found in foods like pork and fish, these dietary sources may not be enough. By adding collagen to your morning coffee, you not only get to enjoy your daily caffeine fix but also nourish your body from the inside out.

It Tastes Good

Don't worry, coffee fans. Your coffee will still taste great. Kollo Health’s tropical flavored liquid collagen brings the taste of an island getaway into your daily routine.

Enjoy the benefits of collagen without compromising on your favourite morning beverage. Extra mixing may be needed to ensure the liquid collagen dissolves completely.

Help Your Liver Get Rid of Toxins

You may have heard that coffee is healthy for your liver. But did you know collagen can add to this benefit? That’s right, adding collagen to your coffee can benefit your liver's health.

Collagen contains amino acids like glycine, which support liver function. Coffee has been associated with various liver health benefits. Combining collagen with coffee will offer a synergistic effect, supporting liver detox and your health.

Boost Muscle Mass

Collagen is essential for muscle health and growth. Adding collagen to your coffee provides your body with the building blocks it needs to maintain and increase muscle mass.

Drinking this mixture can help those who exercise or are working on building muscle. So add some collagen to your coffee before heading to the gym and say hello to better muscle recovery.

Improve Your Digestion

Did you know collagen helps aid digestion? Coffee boosts stomach acid, bile, and pancreatic secretion and helps move things along in your colon. Collagen has amino acids like glycine and proline that help the lining of your digestive tract.

Adding collagen to your coffee may cut digestive issues and discomfort. Bye-bye, bloat and gas!

Stronger Skin, Hair, and Nails

Collagen is crucial for maintaining the health and vitality of your skin, hair, and nails. Adding collagen to your coffee gives your body the nutrients it needs to support collagen production.

This drink mixture can lead to stronger nails, shinier hair, and supple skin. Wrinkles be gone!

Promote Heart Health

Collagen contains amino acids like proline and arginine, which benefit heart health. Adding collagen to your coffee may help with healthy blood pressure, better circulation, and reduced heart risk.

Collagen helps keep the shape of your arteries and blood vessels. When you lack collagen, your arteries may weaken. This simple addition can contribute to overall cardiovascular wellness.

How Much Collagen Should You Add to a Cup of Coffee?

The perfect amount of collagen to add to your coffee varies based on what you like and what you're aiming for. A typical suggestion is to begin with one to two tablespoons of collagen peptides per cup of coffee.

Brew your coffee as you always do, then measure out about 20 grams of collagen protein. Gently mix it into your coffee until it dissolves completely.

Feel free to tweak the amount to suit your taste and how much collagen you want. Experiment a bit to find the perfect balance. Kollo Health’s collagen adds a delicious tropical flavour to your morning beverage.

The temperatures at which collagen becomes ineffective

But, what do we mean when we talk about higher temperatures? One piece of research carried out by the National Centre for Biotechnology Information found that degradation happens at around 302ºF or 150ºC. Most people brew their coffee in temperature ranges of 195–205ºF or 90–96ºC.

Good news for coffee lovers

As long as you add your collagen supplement to coffee or tea when it is below 302ºF /150ºC, it shouldn’t be affected. So, if you are a coffee lover, adding collagen to your beloved drink is a great way of making sure you get what your body needs to help keep your skin healthy.
