Coffee and collagen, good combination or not?
A while ago it was rumored that the heat of the coffee would destroy the molecules of the collagen and that it is therefore better not to take coffee and collagen together. Is this really so? Or are there benefits when you mix collagen with coffee? And if so, how often and when is the best time to drink collagen coffee? And what are the best collagen coffee recipes?
Does the coffee destroy collagen?
When I read that the heat of coffee could possibly destroy collagen, I dived into this. It turned out that this is not the case when high quality collagen peptides are used used. These high quality collagen peptides stay whole up to about 200 degrees (a cup of coffee is 90 degrees at its hottest). If the heat of the coffee doesn't destroy collagen, there might even be benefits of adding collagen to the coffee?
The top 3 benefits of mixing coffee and collagen
1. Muscle recovery
First, a study of active men, half of whom took collagen for seven days in a row after their workout and the other half did not. The men who took collagen hadlessmuscle soreness after a workout and the musclesrecovered faster.
Coffee appeared to have the same effect. When coffee is taken with carbohydrates after a workout, the caffeine causes the glucose to move more quickly through the blood to the muscles. This allows your body to recover faster .
A cup of coffee with collagen and a banana after your workout is therefore ideal for your recovery.
2. Lose weight
In addition to the fact that this combination helps with muscle recovery, it is also great if you want to lose weight. Research shows that when you take collagen you feel saturated and full for 40% longer than when you take another protein. Another study also indicated that people taking collagen eat less at a bye.
You probably recognize the same thing with a cup of coffee. That your stomach is growling, but when you drink a cup of coffee you are not hungry again for a while. In addition, coffee also boosts your metabolism, causing your body to burn more calories after drinking a cup coffee.
When you are hungry, have a cup of collagen coffee.
3. More energy during exercise
A study on runners found that when they took collagen before their workout, they increased endurance had. Other studies found the same results with different sports and also a positive effect of collagen on your energy and focus during a working day.
As you probably know, coffee also has a positive effect on your energy level due to the caffeine.
So before exercising, have a cup of coffee with collagen.
How many collagen coffees per day
We always recommend not having more than3 cups coffee per day, due to the amount of caffeine it contains. Consuming too much caffeine can cause heart problems, difficulty falling asleep, headaches and dizziness. You only need 5 to 15 grams of collagen per day. So see if you can add 5 grams of collagen per cup of coffee and drink it two or three times a day.
