Should You Really be Putting Collagen in Your Coffee? Here's What We Found Out

So, what gives? Can you put collagen in your coffee? Or should it be avoided at all costs?

Well, there are two things to know…

1. Collagen degrades at a temperature of 572°F.

Since the average temperature of brewed coffee is between 195 and 205°F, collagen doesn’t “melt” away in coffee like the article claims it does.


If the above point doesn’t resolve this “coffee with collagen” debate, then this scientific study should…

2. In 2012, an important study was carried out.

85 female participants were split into three groups of 28 or 29—with skin hydration, elasticity, wrinkles, and roughness being measured (4). The first group was given 5 grams of conventional collagen peptides, the second group was given 5 grams of bioactive collagen peptides, and the last group was given a placebo. Each group consumed their sample in coffee, tea, hot milk, or any other beverage.


As expected, both the conventional collagen and bioactive collagen groups showed a significant improvement in skin moisture, wrinkles, and roughness compared to that of the placebo group. Not only that, the bioactive collagen group experienced an even greater improvement in elasticity, wrinkles, and wrinkle depth compared to the conventional collagen group. And may I just point out…the individuals in the collagen groups were taking it with a hot beverage.

So, Can I Put Collagen in My Coffee?

Yes, you can. By adding a scoop or two of hydrolyzed collagen powder to your coffee, you’re essentially turning that average cup of joe into a superfood beverage that promotes healthy bones, joints, skin, hair, nails, AND digestive lining.


So why not get a morning pick-me-up and a youthful boost at the same time?

The Best Collagen Powder for Your Coffee

Before you click out of this article, I want to bring up an important reminder: Not all collagen is created equal! Many of the collagen supplements out there are low-quality, multi-collagen supplements sourced from questionable sources. So, be sure to do your research.
