Vital Proteins announces the launch of Collagen Creamers, a delicious, dairy-free way to add collagen and healthy fats to your coffee.
If you have always enjoyed mixing our Collagen Peptides or Beef Gelatin into your coffee, you’re going to love our newest product. Vital Proteins is excited to announce the release of our Vital Proteins Collagen Creamers, available in Coconut, Vanilla and Gingerbread! Now, coffee fanatics can enjoy mixing collagen protein into their brew while enjoying all the flavors of a Paleo-friendly, Whole30-approved creamer.
Vital Proteins fans have long enjoyed mixing our Collagen Peptides into their morning coffee. But since our peptides are flavorless and odorless, they don’t add any distinct changes to the coffee in terms of texture or taste. Our Collagen Creamers offer a brand new way to enjoy your collagen while adding flavor and dimension to your coffee.
Full of Healthy Fats
In addition to boasting 10 grams of collagen, our creamers also offer a dose of healthy fats. With 9 grams of fat from coconut milk, our creamers contain the medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) that are beneficial for energy production. MCTs are more easily converted to energy than other fats, which is why these fats are every athlete’s go-to source. Healthy fats also boost satiety, helping you stay full and acting as a crucial component of a balanced diet.
Collagen is a beneficial protein, as it is the most abundant protein found in the human body. It is the building block for all of the body’s connective tissues, which include the hair, skin, nails, bones, joints, and tendons. This makes collagen an important component of health, fitness, and beauty.
Our ancestors used to consume collagen as a major part of their daily diets, but due to modern food processing, we now consume only a few specific parts of animal meat — parts that are not rich in collagen. As a result, we may not be getting the full spectrum of amino acids that are necessary for our bodies to produce their own collagen. This problem increases with age, as our collagen production begins to decline after about age 25.
Therefore, it’s important to support collagen production and obtain this beneficial protein in our diets. People who supplement with collagen often report noticing positive changes to their hair, skin, and nails, digestive health, sleep quality, and athletic performance.**
Helps Maintain Healthy Skin, Hair and Nails
Collagen is a natural ingredient that can help improve skin moisture and contribute to a beautiful, youthful complexion. Research has shown that more than 90 percent of collagen peptides are digested and quickly absorbed after oral ingestion.
Having an adequate supply of collagen is crucial for preventing the loss of skin moisture, protecting against wrinkles and fine lines, maintaining skin suppleness, and supporting hair and nail growth.
Supports Bone and Joint Health
The bones and joints also benefit greatly from ample collagen levels. In addition to being a protein source, collagen contains the amino acids that are necessary for the body to build its own collagen. Only with plentiful collagen can bones and joints function at their best.
The amino acids Glycine and Proline are prevalent in collagen and go toward the formation of new collagen by the human body. This has beneficial effects: In a study, supplementing with 30–70 grams of collagen peptides per day helped reduce injury rates in athletes (3).
Contributes to Gut Health
Just like the outer skin, the “inner skin” — the lining of bodily organs — is built by collagen. This is why collagen can promote gut and digestive health.
New research shows that gut health is related to a number of different biological processes, including brain function, mood, and healthy aging. Supporting gut health, therefore, turns out to be a crucial component of wellness. The 18 amino acids in collagen have the potential to promote gut health and play a number of roles in supporting digestion.
- Increase Stomach Acid: Amino acids can increase gastric acid levels, which aid in the digestion of food.
- Protect the Gut Lining: Glutamine is proven to improve the lining of the intestinal tract.
Our new creamers come in three delicious varieties: Coconut, Vanilla, and Gingerbread. All three flavors are coconut milk-based, and are free from dairy, lactose, gluten, added sugars, and artificial sweeteners.
Coconut Collagen Creamer
Our coconut creamer contains an array of 18 beneficial amino acids, boasting all the health benefits of our classic Collagen Peptides. Its coconut milk base allows it to add a creamy dimension to your cup of coffee and provide a mild coconut flavor. Boasting 10 grams of collagen per serving, it’s a healthy, delicious way to add a boost of extra collagen-based protein to your day.
Vanilla Collagen Creamer
Vanilla is a big crowd-pleaser, and vanilla lovers everywhere are sure to enjoy this delicious creamer. Like its counterparts, it contains 10 grams of collagen and 18 different amino acids. However, its flavor sets it apart: Made with real vanilla beans, this creamer is a must for anyone who loves the flavor of warm vanilla in their coffee.
Gingerbread Collagen Creamer
Arguably our most festive option, our Gingerbread Creamer is perfect to sip in your coffee year-round. Its warm spiciness makes it a great option for those who love to take things up a notch. It boasts ingredients like vanilla beans, organic nutmeg, organic cinnamon, and of course, Collagen Peptides.
In addition to their numerous health benefits, our Collagen Creamers are extremely versatile. Not only can they be easily mixed into your coffee, they also go great in teas, smoothies, and any other drink that could use a Vanilla, Coconut, or Gingerbread twist. They can also be used as a baking ingredient, lending new flavors to your favorite desserts and breakfasts.
