I read somewhere that hot water degrades collagen. Is that true?
Nutra Collagen and Collagen Coffee products are made with hydrolyzed collagen peptides which means they’re already carefully processed so that they will not break down from the heat and are more easily dissolvable amino acids. Our Hydrolyzed Collagen is highly heat stable able to withstand temperatures over 500 degrees without degradation.(Reference: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21723833)which makes it ideal as a Coffee companion as well as being a great addition to recipes in baking and/or cooking. Brewed coffee typically reaches a temperature of around 185 degrees F. The boiling point for water is 212 degrees F.

What is Collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant structural protein in the human body, comprising roughly one-third of the body’s protein. Proteins are what hold our bodies together, as they provide structure and function to all of our tissues and organs. Collagen is the major component of connective tissue – cartilage, bones, tendons, ligaments, muscle, blood vessels and skin (the largest organ in our body). The body naturally produces collagen by breaking down proteins from the foods we eat. Those proteins are broken down into amino acids, and those amino acids are used to build more collagen. Collagen contains over 18 amino acids and over 8 essential amino acids, each of which is incredibly important to our health. Unfortunately, collagen production gradually declines with age resulting in sagging skin and wrinkles, creaky joints, brittle nails & hair, and even aching muscles. That’s where collagen supplements like Collagen Coffee come in. Research shows that the right collagen products could help slow these inevitable signs of aging.
What are MCTs? Why are they added into Collagen Coffee?
MCTs (Medium Chain Triglycerides) are healthy dietary fats that the body can easily break down to be used for fast-acting energy, may elevate memory recall and supports appetite control. MCTs are also naturally antibacterial and antifungal, which help support good gut health. The MCTs source found in Collagen Coffee is from coconut oil.
