Bulletproof coffee is a very popular drink, especially among those who follow a ketogenic diet. Created by an American entrepreneur and biohacker Dave Asprey, Bulletproof coffee consists of freshly brewed coffee, MCT oil and grass-fed butter or ghee.

Due to the added fats, the classic version of the Bulletproof coffee will keep you feeling satiated, focused and energised without experiencing an energy crash typical of regular coffee consumption habits.

Upgraded Bulletproof Coffee with Collagen Protein

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body. You can think of it as building blocks that make the structure of our bones, skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

Oral collagen supplementation may be beneficial for wound healing and improving aged skin. Oral collagen supplements also increase skin elasticity, hydration, and dermal collagen density. Collagen supplementation is generally safe with no reported adverse events. (source).

Naturally, collagen can be consumed from foods like bone broth, kidney pies, baked beef hearts and whole fish soups. But if you are not eating these foods on a regular basis, chances are your body does not get enough grass-fed collagen protein through diet.

Moreover, consuming too much sugar, refined carbs, smoking or being exposed to the sun a lot can reduce collagen production even further.

Enriching your Bulletproof coffee with collagen is a great way to enjoy a tasty cup of joe while supplementing your body with this irreplaceable protein.

What makes Collagen Bulletproof Coffee so great?

In addition to an extra boost of energy and mental focus you get from Bulletproof coffee, supplementing it with grass-fed collagen protein can offer the following:

  • Smoother, more hydrated skin: Collagen production decreases with age, which affects skin elasticity and hydration, potentially leading to wrinkles. According to the study, taking oral collagen supplements helps increase skin elasticity, hydration, and dermal collagen density.

  • Faster post-workout recovery: Collagen Bulletproof coffee can not only boost your workout but also become a recovery elixir. Being the main protein in the body, collagen helps re-build everything from bones, connective tissue in the skin to tendons and muscles. 

  • Build muscle mass: According to the study, men who combined resistance training with collagen supplementation showed increased muscle mass after 12 weeks.

  • Stronger joints: One study showed that patients with osteoarthritis had experienced the ease of symptoms after taking collagen hydrolysate. Moreover, collagen is also a great hack for endurance athletes, particularly if the preferred exercise is tough on joints.

  • Does not affect the coffee taste: Collagen protein is generally easy to use. It does not gel when blended with liquid ingredients, does not change the texture or flavour of the coffee. Just make sure you get the unflavoured type.

Why Collagen Bulletproof Coffee is good for keto?

Ketogenic diet is aimed at getting your body into a state of ketosis which implies switching to a high fat, low carb diet.

In the beginning, your gut needs time to adjust to high-fat content, therefore some people experience an upset stomach when drinking Bulletproof coffee.

Collagen is known for supporting the intestinal wall and stomach lining, which may be beneficial during the transition period.

Collagen Bulletproof coffee also helps supplement your body with protein and quality fats that are needed to get into the state of ketosis.
