2. Collagen Protein Coffee

If you prefer to taste the full-bodied flavor of your coffee without altering the character at all, then why not add a scoop of our BioTRUST Ageless Multi-Collagen Protein Powder. With each scoop, you are getting five Types of Collagen to Powerfully Support:

  • Healthy skin, hair, and nails
  • Gut, joint, and bone health
  • Athletic performance, recovery, and an active lifestyle

Plus, every serving of Ageless Multi-Collagen is:

  • Loaded with 10 grams of collagen protein (per serving) including BioActive Collagen Peptides
  • A complete protein source featuring 140 mg of tryptophan
  • Tasteless, odorless, and mixes instantly WITHOUT clumps (in hot or cool liquids)

The bonus here is that you can add both BioTRUST Low Carb Protein Blend and Ageless Multi-Collagen to get ALL the protein.

Now taking one or both of these simple ingredients above and creating a healthy recipe is super simple. And you don’t need to remember venti, grande, tall, whipped, blended, half-caff, or any of that mumbo jumbo. You just have to know what flavor profiles work for YOU.
