Easy Ways to Add Collagen to Your Diet

We all know the importance of adding foods rich in collagen to your diet, but what exactly is collagen and how can it benefit you? Collagen is a protein that makes up skin, bones, tendons and other connective tissue. It helps keep your body strong and healthy as we age by building muscle mass, improving memory function, providing support for joints, aiding with digestion and more! So how can we fit collagen intake in our daily routine?  

Add Collagen Peptides or Collagen Creamer to your morning coffee or tea 

Collagen Peptides  and Collagen Creamers are a great way to add a healthy dose of protein and collagen to your diet. If you're a coffee or tea drinker, this will probably be the most convenient way for you to add collagen into your busy lifestyle. If you don't want to change the taste of your coffee or tea, try our Unflavoured Collagen Peptides, if you prefer to give your favorite morning drink some extra flavour, try adding one of our Collagen Creamers or Dairy Free Collagen Creamers. 

Try a collagen protein powder. 

Collagen protein powder is a great way to get more collagen into your diet. Our Collagen Whey Protein powder will provide you with the recommended daily dose of protein, whilst also providing the recommended daily dose of collagen, so it's a win-win for anyone who likes to have a protein shake. You can have it with just water, any type of milk, or add it to your smoothie or oats.  

Make tropical or mixed berry popsicles. 

Make a chilled summer treat by blending together one of our Marine Collagen  powders with water or coconut milk. Pour the mixture into popsicle molds. If you don't have any popsicle molds lying around, simply pour the mixture into small glasses or cups (or even a bowl) lined with plastic wrap so they can be easily removed after freezing. If you want to add extra flavour and make them look nicer, add some berries or any other fruit to the popsicles before freezing them. 

Adding more collagen-rich foods to your diet can help improve your health and curb pesky sugar cravings. 

Collagen can help you lose weight by curbing sugar cravings. When you consume too much sugar (or any kind of processed carbs), it spikes your blood sugar levels which causes your body to release insulin to bring down those levels again. Over time this pattern can cause insulin resistance, leading to diabetes or other health problems like heart disease or high cholesterol. 

By adding more collagen-rich foods into your diet like salmon or chicken breast with skin on it—you'll give yourself an extra boost of anti-inflammatory nutrients while also helping curb cravings for sweets!


As you can see, there are many ways to add collagen to your diet. If you’re looking for a healthy way to improve your skin and hair, we hope this article has been helpful in showing some easy ways to add collagen into your life.
