The keto diet has taken off in recent years as a way to easily burn fat and shed weight. Whether you’ve just started looking into the keto diet or you’re already a pro, using Vital Proteins Collagen Creamer® in Mocha is a foolproof addition to your keto meal planning.

Note: We recommend discussing your health goals with a healthcare professional. They can best provide you with the diagnosis and treatment of any medical condition and assist you in deciding whether a dietary supplement will be a helpful addition to your regime.

What is the Keto Diet?

The ketogenic, or keto diet, is a high-fat, low-carb diet that is meant to get your body into ketosis – a state in which the body burns fat instead of glucose for energy.

Glucose is the sugar found in carbohydrates that your body usually turns to for energy. When you’re consuming fewer carbs, you’re also consuming less glucose. With less glucose to burn for energy, your body begins to burn stored fat. This allows you to enter ketosis, aiding your body in shedding unwanted weight.

Collagen & Keto

Collagen is an amazing protein to include in a ketogenic diet. Collagen is the body’s most abundant protein found in the skin, bones and cartilage. People following a keto diet will usually opt to include the skin, bones and cartilage in their meat sources, and they often drink bone broth – a rich source of collagen. This makes collagen a natural component of a ketogenic diet.

However, you can also add collagen into your ketogenic diet in the form of collagen peptides. Vital Proteins® Collagen Peptides are sourced from Brazilian bovine. Other products in Vital Proteins’ line-up include Beef Gelatin, which can be used to create thick, delicious soups and stews, and Marine Collagen, which is suitable for those following a pescatarian-friendly diet.

Meanwhile, Vital Proteins Beef Liver Capsules are also a fantastic addition to a ketogenic diet. Proponents of the diet often advocate for consuming bone broth and organ meats like liver (which is rich in essential nutrients such as vitamin A).

Why Should I Use Vital Proteins Mocha Collagen Creamer?

Using Vital Proteins Mocha Collagen Creamer is a great way to add Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) to your diet without any added sugars or artificial flavours. It is Whole30® approved, dairy free and contains 10g of collagen per serving.

The combination of MCTs and Collagen Peptides are a powerhouse source of keto-friendly health benefits. Our Mocha Collagen Creamer provides MCTs from organic coconut milk powder.

How Can I Use the Mocha Collagen Creamer?

One of the easiest ways to use the Mocha Collagen Creamer™ supplement is by biohacking your coffee.

Biohacking is when you use biology-supported tricks to change your body chemistry to optimise your biological functions. You’ve most likely done some form of biohacking through supplementation, an elimination diet, practicing meditation and more.

By adding Mocha Collagen Creamer to your morning coffee, you’ll be getting energy and fats. Not a big coffee drinker? You can also add the creamer to tea, porridge or your favourite dessert recipe.
