The Perfect Addition to Your Morning Coffee: Collagen!
I’ve been using Collagen Peptides every day for the last few years. I use it in my coffee every single morning (check out this previous post about my coffee recipe), my husband puts it in his breakfast protein shake, and sometimes I’ll even mix it with water. While my taste buds are changing and my diet might not look the same as it did a year or two ago, my intake of Collagen has never wavered.
Naked Nutrition, a new-to-me company specializing in clean supplements, recently sent me their Naked Collagen to try. I instantly agreed and as soon as I received my sample, I replaced the collagen I was using and started adding Naked Nutrition Collagen to my coffee.
Here’s my review.
One of the main things that instantly attracted me to this brand was their no nonsense packaging. I’m a sucker for minimalist packaging and their bold font and easy to read nutrition and ingredient label hit the nail on the head for me. I love that it’s easy to see what’s in this collagen and more importantly, what’s not in it. It’s just as the name says, Naked.
I also love that this company is committed to being transparent about the products they sell, how they derive their proteins, and what’s in each product. It’s refreshing to know exactly what’s in the things you’re consuming.
According to the Naked Nutrition website, “Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body and a major component of connective tissues in tendons, ligaments, skin and muscles. Consuming collagen provides health benefits including joint health, youthful skin, healthy hair, protecting cartilage and bones, and workout recovery.*”
Here’s what sets Naked Nutrition apart from the other companies selling Collagen Peptides (according to their website).

What’s not to love here?
So what do I think of this product? It’s great! I’ve been using it for over a month now and would highly recommend it. It’s great for strong nail and hair growth, and overall skin complexion. It’s tasteless and odorless and doesn’t leave clumps behind and when blended it coffee it’s makes a frothy and delicious treat. And just a side note here: Y’all know I do not play when it comes to my coffee. I drink a ridiculous amount of this roasted bean juice each day and I would never promote adding something to your beloved hot drink that would ruin the taste. But this collagen is tasteless and really doesn’t clump, making it so easy to add a scoop and enjoy your cup(s).
So if you’re looking for a way to increase your collagen intake, looking to add a clean source of protein to your coffee or smoothies, looking to improve your nail, hair, or skin health, look no further than Naked Nutrition Collagen Peptides.
