BULLETPROOF COLLAGEN PROTEINS
What is collagen protein?
Collagen protein is the glue that holds your body together. Literally. It’s the connective tissue in structures like your skin, hair, nails and bones.  It supports glowing skin, flexible joints and tons of other whole-body benefits.  Hate wrinkles? You’ll love collagen.
But unless you routinely nosh on organ meats and bone broth, you probably aren’t eating enough collagen. That’s why people are talking about hydrolyzed collagen protein, also known as collagen peptides.
Bulletproof Collagen Protein is pure hydrolyzed collagen, and it’s an easy daily supplement to support your body from the inside out. It’s a flavorless powder that you can add to anything, like coffee and baked goods. It’s also available in Chocolate and Vanilla flavors, and Collagelatin — aka gelatin plus collagen for more protein goodness.
The bottom line: Collagen is awesome. You probably need more of it. And whether you want glowing, hydrated skin or you’re an athlete looking for faster recovery, it’s easier than ever to add collagen to your everyday routine.

HOW COLLAGEN PROTEIN WORKS
Your body naturally makes its own collagen protein. It strings together chains of amino acids like glycine, proline and hydroxyproline. As long as those amino acids are plentiful, specialized cells in your skin and connective tissue have all the supplies they need to build collagen.
One problem: Unless you routinely eat organ meats and bone-based broths, you probably aren’t getting enough collagen-building amino acids in your diet. So, your body produces just enough collagen to keep your systems running. A collagen supplement can help fill in the gaps so you get a broader range of collagen benefits.
Here’s how. Collagen supplements are loaded with glycine, proline and hydroxyproline. That gives your body easy access to the amino acids it needs to make more collagen. More collagen means there’s more protein available to give your skin a glow-up and support those hardworking joints.
Bulletproof Collagen Protein makes it easy to get more collagen in your diet — without having to change your everyday routine. Just add 1-2 scoops to your favorite drinks or recipes and let those amino acids get to work.
The bottom line: More collagen in your body means more amino acids to support glowing skin and flexible joints. To get more collagen, eat collagen-rich foods like organ meats and bone broth — and take a hydrolyzed collagen protein supplement.
Why you need a collagen supplement
You naturally produce collagen, but it starts to slow down as you age — starting around age 25.  Yup.
Sure, you can replenish it by eating things like organ meats and kidney pies. But it’s not easy to eat enough of those foods to replace the collagen you lose every day.
That’s where a collagen supplement can help. Hydrolyzed collagen protein makes it simple to get more collagen in your diet. Just add 1-2 scoops to your morning coffee, post-workout shake or even plain water before you go to bed. Stir. Sip. Done.
Collagen is natural. Your body already produces it, and it works at the cellular level. That means that when you add more of it to your diet, the change you see and feel is real — not just cosmetic.
Here are just a few ways your body uses this important protein:
- Skin: Your new favorite beauty hack. Collagen is like scaffolding: It gives structure to the dermis, the thickest layer of your skin. Taking collagen peptides keeps your skin full and plump, promotes elasticity and may reduce wrinkles.
- Hair: Want luscious locks? Just add collagen. A diet rich in collagen protein and the amino acid cysteine (which you already get in a lot of high-protein foods) promotes faster and thicker hair growth. 
- Joints and bones: Your body uses collagen to build everything from connective tissue to tendons. That means a collagen supplement can help you recover faster from a workout, make your joints more flexible and build strong bones.

How Bulletproof Collagen Protein is made
Bulletproof Collagen Protein comes from pasture-raised cows. These cows spend most of their lives eating grass as nature intended, not corn or soy. That means our products contain no hormones, antibiotics or GMOs — just pure hydrolyzed collagen peptides.
“Hydrolysis” means breaking a hydrogen bond. Collagelatin is only partially hydrolyzed, which is what allows it to gel when cool. To make Collagen Protein, we take gelatin and use gentle enzymes to break it down a step further into hydrolyzed powder. We specifically use enzymes so you get the best possible product.
The end result is a smooth, protein-packed powder that easily dissolves in hot or cold liquids. This whole process protects the nutrition of the collagen and ensures bioavailability — another way of saying your body can easily absorb and use all the good stuff. Simple.
Collagen is loaded with amino acids, including glycine, proline and hydroxyproline. Your body uses those amino acids to make more collagen protein.
Whey protein is different because it also contains tryptophan. Think of collagen protein as a way to fill in the gaps and make sure your body is getting high enough doses of the amino acids it needs to build more collagen.
Some people combine whey and collagen protein — that way, you get all the amino acids your body needs, plus an extra kick of joint and bone support from collagen. Learn how to choose the best protein powder for your body.
Bulletproof Collagen Protein is primarily type I and a small amount of type III bovine collagen.
There are at least 28 different types of collagen, but types I, II and III form 80-90% of the collagen in your body. Type I and III provide structure to your skin, muscles and ligaments. 
Bulletproof Collagen Protein is made up of collagen peptides that have been hydrolyzed, or broken down into an easy-to-digest powder. Thanks to hydrolysis, Collagen Protein easily dissolves in hot and cold liquids and it won’t form a gel when cooled.
Collagelatin is a blend of collagen protein and gelatin. It forms a jiggly gel when it’s dissolved in hot liquid and cooled. The benefit of Collagelatin is that you get the gelling power of gelatin with added protein from collagen. Use it to make protein-packed gummy treats, or as a versatile thickener in soups and sauces.
We recommend 1-2 scoops. One serving (2 scoops) of Bulletproof Collagen Protein contains at least 22 grams of pure hydrolyzed collagen. You can take it any time of day — try one scoop in your morning coffee and one scoop before you head to bed.
A well-balanced diet rich in collagen protein and the amino acid cysteine promotes faster and thicker hair growth. You get cysteine from high-protein foods like meat, eggs and broccoli. For the best hair ever, follow a balanced diet and try a collagen supplement.
Studies show that collagen can strengthen joints, improve flexibility and decrease mild joint pain after exercise.
The primary benefits of collagen include smoother skin, thicker hair and nails and stronger joints. Collagen is a great hack for endurance athletes, especially if your preferred exercise is tough on the joints — looking at you, endurance runners and powerlifters.
“Hydrolysis” means breaking a hydrogen bond. To make collagen protein, we take gelatin and use gentle enzymes to break it down a step further into hydrolyzed powder. That process allows the final product to easily dissolve in hot or cold liquids, which is great, but it also maintains the nutrition of the collagen and maximizes bioavailability — which means your body can actually absorb those essential amino acids and produce more collagen.
Yup. Bulletproof Collagen Protein dissolves easily in hot and cold liquids. The only exception is Collagelatin. Just like those gelatin packets you can buy at the grocery store, Collagelatin dissolves in hot liquids and then gels when cool.
Bulletproof Collagen Protein doesn’t taste like anything. It’s also odorless, in case you were wondering. Once you add it to your favorite drinks and recipes, it’s virtually undetectable (but your body will appreciate it).
Bone broth is tasty and savory, but it also takes hours to properly prepare. Collagen protein contains the same amino acids as bone broth and it’s way easier to use. Just scoop, stir and go.
It’s effective any time of day, whether you take it before or after a workout. Collagen promotes recovery because it’s the main protein your body recruits to help build everything from the connective tissue in skin to the tendons that attach muscles to bone.
Unfortunately, there’s a lot of variability with collagen products. Some companies use fillers or artificial colors (we don’t). And although you can get the same amino acid benefits from collagen capsules, you want to investigate what the capsules are made of, how much collagen you get per serving and what the ingredients are.
Collagen protein powder is simple — and there’s no need to carry around a fistful of collagen capsules. Bulletproof Collagen Protein is 100% hydrolyzed collagen protein and nothing else. Plus, collagen powder is easy to use. Just add 1-2 scoops to whatever you’re drinking right now. Done.
Yes! Collagen adds a punch of protein and blends beautifully into Bulletproof Coffee.
Pretty much anything. Collagen is really easy to add to your favorite recipes because it’s heat-stable, which means you can add it to hot drinks or even bake with it. Start by mixing it into your morning coffee or tea. Whip up a batch of Double Chocolate Chip Keto Cookies. Prep some Easy Keto White Truffles.
