People Are Adding This Surprising Ingredient to Their Morning Cup of Coffee

The idea behind collagen powder is similar to the reason bone broth got so popular a few years ago. However, collagen powder is a lot more user-friendly.

Bone broth, however, does require some time to make. The trend has quietly died down and has been replaced by collagen powder — an easier alternative to simmering a giant pot of bones for seven hours.

So now you know the benefits of collagen powder. But what is this seemingly magical substance? We're so glad you asked!

Collagen is the structural protein found in skin, bones, tendons, and connective tissue in animals. It is the most bountiful protein in the human body.

Collagen protein, or gelatin, is different from collagen peptides in that peptides are soluble in water. According to CNBC, in collagen powder “the proteins are broken down into individual peptide (amino acid) chains and the powdered collagen doesn't gel like gelatin.” This means you can easily add powdered collagen to hot liquids versus gelatin where it will gel. You'll notice this in bone broth if you've ever let it sit out and get cold.
