WHY HYDROLYZED COLLAGEN IS GREAT AND HOW TO ENJOY IT
Hydrolyzed, or predigested, collagen is a fantastic source of bioavailable protein. The many collagen benefits include healthier joints and muscles, better hair, skin, and nails, fewer wrinkles, and better sleep. By taking at least a scoop of collagen daily, you can support your whole body and overall health.
The texture of hydrolyzed collagen makes it a great addition to just about any beverage. Let’s look at the best ways you can use it throughout your day.
1. MIXED WITH WATER
Although most people like to mix their collagen powder with other beverages, you can easily mix it with water and drink for a quick dose of protein.
2. IN HOT COFFEE OR TEA
This is the most popular way to take our Keto Zone Hydrolyzed Chicken Collagen! Just blend in your tea or morning coffee for a creamy boost. You can also add it to your keto coffee along with MCT oil powderand grass-fed butter or coconut oil.
If you enjoy hot tea before bed, you can mix in some collagen to help you sleep. The collagen provides your body with the building blocks to heal and regenerate during slumber. This is why some of our Keto Zone members even use it as a sleep aid!
3. WITH UNSWEETENED MILK
Mix it with non-dairy milks, such as almond or coconut (just make sure they’re unsweetened), or cow’s milk. For more flavor, you can add a few drops of stevia or vanilla extract. Such a healthy treat!
4. MIXED IN HOT CHOCOLATE
For a special health-promoting drink, make this Keto Zone hot chocolate that uses hydrolyzed collagen powder. It tastes even better than normal hot cocoa and is way better for you!
5. BLENDED IN SMOOTHIES
Hydrolyzed collagen is also great in keto smoothies or shakes at any time of the day.
6. WITH BONE BROTH
Bone broth is another form of collagen in the form of gelatin. For a tasty double dose of protein, you can mix hydrolyzed collagen with organic beef or chicken bone broth.
7. WITH EXOGENOUS KETONES
With bone broth, pair your hydrolyzed collagen with Instant Ketones for a boost of keto-friendly protein and fat-burning ketones! It’s a great way to support yourself on the Keto Zone Diet.
