Is optimizing your wellness plan as easy as perfecting your morning coffee? Some wellness experts would have you think so. When you have a long day ahead, you need a boost that gets you up, out, and both looking and feeling your best. That’s why it’s becoming more and more popular to “biohack” that morning cup of joe.
Biohacking is a term for using biology-supported tricks to change your body chemistry, ultimately optimizing your biological functions. This often includes things like supplementation, maintaining an elimination diet, fasting, using technology, practicing meditation, or a making a tweak to your workout protocol. Essentially, biohacking boils down to maximizing your daily health efforts by improving efficiency.
One of the most popular means of biohacking is to add proteins and fats to your coffee, ultimately boosting your energy levels and reducing hunger cravings. And what better way to do that than by using one of Vital Proteins Collagen Creamers? Here’s how:
While the benefits of coffee are endless, your current coffee creamer may have to go. The average creamer has around 3g of sugar per serving and not much else. Smarter coffee additions include things like butter (keto coffee), medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) and Vital Proteins Collagen Creamers (which contain both MCTs and clean collagen protein). These options are also appropriate for Paleo, Whole30 and keto lifestyles, which means they don’t contain any sugar — thereby helping to prevent the dreaded sugar crash that can seriously drain your energy.

At first, breaking up with your basic creamer might seem tough. But as soon as you can say, “he’s just not that into you” you’ll be reaping all the benefits of collagen creamer and be happier for it. Vital Proteins Collagen Creamers come in four fantastic flavors: Vanilla, Coconut, Mocha and Gingerbread. They also contain 10g of collagen and 9g of healthy fat from coconut milk, which includes MCTs.
MCTs and Collagen
MCTs are a healthy fat that supports a thriving metabolism and increased energy. Collagen, meanwhile, is the building block of hair, skin, nails, bones and joints. And since we want to live a long, active life, biohacking your coffee with Vital Proteins Collagen Creamer is your shortcut in the right direction.

The Best Time to Biohack Your Coffee
Biohacking your coffee doesn’t just have to be for mornings only. The combination of caffeine, protein and healthy fats can increase energy any time of day. Use it as a healthy breakfast substitute if you’re running late, or a pre-workout snack to boost your workout efforts. Swap out caffeinated for decaf and you have an excellent option for a guilt-free after dinner coffee that’s even better than dessert!
Biohacking into your health allows you to fine-tune your daily habits so that small changes add up to big changes. Kickstart your day with a creamer that not only tastes good but also is an excellent source of collagen protein and MCTs. Are you ready to biohack your coffee?
