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 are consuming fewer carbs you are also consuming less glucose, and 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, and it can promote the healthy maintenance of these cells in our own bodies. People eating keto 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 — to further promote gut function. 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 grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine. Other products in Vital Proteins’ lineup 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 Bone Broth Collagen and Beef Liver are fantastic additions 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 the Mocha Collagen Creamer?
Using Vital Proteins Mocha Collagen Creamer is a great way to add healthy fats and Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) to your diet without any added sugars or artificial flavors. It is Whole30® approved, made without dairy and contains 10g of collagen per serving.
The combination of healthy fats, MCTs and Collagen Peptides are a powerhouse source of keto-friendly health benefits. Our Mocha Collagen Creamer provides healthy fats from organic coconut milk powder, which is also a source of MCTs. Collagen is a protein that supports the health of your hair, skin, nails, bones and joints.**
How Can I Use the Mocha Collagen Creamer?
One of the easiest ways to utilize the Mocha Collagen Creamer™ supplement is by biohacking your coffee. Biohacking is when you use biology-supported tricks to change your body chemistry to optimize your biological functions. You most likely have done some form of biohacking through supplementation, an elimination diet, practicing meditation and more. Not a big coffee drinker? You can also add the creamer to tea, oatmeal or your favorite dessert recipe.
