Combining coffee and collagen

Coffee is a daily ritual for many. If we can combine our morning cup with nutritional benefits through the likes of collagen, we can boost our health and get that coffee fix.

In Nespresso’s collaboration with Zeenat Wilkinson, founder of New Zealand lifestyle magazine Sauce, this wish has been granted. Making up 30% of the body’s protein, collagen supplies structure, support, and strength for the skin, muscles, and bones. It has shown to promote brain health, and improve heart and gut health, amongst other things. Lately, collagen has entered many households’ supplement rotation.
