How to Make an Anti-Aging Mocha
I love to make an anti-aging mocha using collagen peptides. Unlike gelatin, these peptides are soluble in cold liquids as well as hot.
Collagen peptides are short chain amino acids naturally derived from pasture-raised collagen protein.
Fresh brewed coffee or DandyBlend, about 10 oz
1 Tbs organic raw cacao powder
3-5 drops Sweetleaf Stevia
1/4 cup Native Forest Coconut Milk
Unlike gelatin, collagen peptides are soluble in cold liquids as well as hot.
Collagen peptides contain the same amino acids as gelatin which are identical to the protein found in skin, nails, hair, bones, cartilage, and joints.

WHY VITAL PROTEINS’ COLLAGEN?
We believe that whole food based nutrition containing collagen is essential for one’s overall health, fitness and wellbeing. Our ancestors utilized sustainable whole animal nutrition, which provided an abundant amount of collagen.
Over the past century modern food processing has removed this natural and healthy protein from our diets. Collagen is vital for our body and is the basic building block of skin, hair, nails, bones and joints.
Support Healthy Skin, Hair, Nails
Clinical research has shown that Vital Proteins’ Collagen, a natural protein:
- Promotes younger looking skin
- Improves skin moisture level
- Improves skin smoothness by reducing the number of micro-relief furrows
- Improves the signs of deep wrinkles
- Improves skin suppleness
Promote Healthy Joints, Improve Bone Strength
Several studies on collagen, which represents 90% of organic bone mass, suggest that orally administering collagen peptides may provide beneficial effects on bone metabolism, especially in the calcium-deficient condition such as osteopenia, without obvious undesirable effects.
The beneficial effects of collagen peptides have been reported in numerous research findings. The clinical study conducted by Moskowitz, performed on various populations for a period ranging from 30 to 90 days, demonstrated a positive effect on knee joint comfort with a dose of 10g of collagen peptides per day. The effect was even more pronounced in patients suffering more severe symptoms.
Another more recent study assessed the efficiency of collagen peptides in a randomized, double blind, controlled multicenter trial, in which 250 subjects with primary osteoarthritis of the knee were given 10g of collagen peptides daily. The results showed a significant improvement in knee joint comfort, and again subjects with the greatest joint deterioration benefited most.
