I first discovered Perfect Keto Collagen, a few months ago after seeing a lot of my Instagram friends using it in their butter coffee! Since there are a ton of keto collagen options, I’m a bit hesitant to buy a tub of something. Last week, when Perfect Keto released several of their most popular products, including keto collagen, in the form of single serving 5-packs, I knew this was my chance to give them a try. Overall, my experience so far has been that this collagen is awesome because it offers the benefits of collagen & MCT Oil, but is also designed (with clean ingredients) for keto. If you’ve never heard of keto collagen before, then keep reading to understand what it is, why I use it and how I incorporate it into my ketogenic lifestyle.
What Is Perfect Keto Collagen?
Keto Collagen is a blend of MCTs and collagen.
Collagen & MCTs are some of the healthiest fats and proteins you can consume while following a ketogenic or low-carb lifestyle. Collagen is a type of protein often described as a “building block” for your hair, skin, and nails. MCTs are a source of healthy fat and something that I use each day in cooking to stay in ketosis and maintain my energy. Perfect Keto Collagen has both of these so in some ways, it’s like getting two supplements in one. Keto Collagen has 4 flavors: Unflavored, Salted Caramel, Vanilla & Chocolate. Each serving of Unflavored has 4g of MCT Oil powder and 10g of Collagen.
How do I use Perfect Keto Collagen?
I incorporate collagen in nearly every part of my day. In fact, its ability to be used in so many parts of my life is the reason that I prefer to get my collagen unflavored. In the morning, I add a scoop to my butter coffee (you can get a recipe for butter coffee here). In the afternoon, I sometimes mix it with my electrolytes. For dinner, I even add collagen as a way to thicken my sauces (see my a recipe using collagen below – yum!)
Why did I start using Keto Collagen?
Perfect Keto Collagen has a spot in my keto supplement cabinet because it’s actually flavorless, has clean ingredients and is designed for keto.
- It’s actually flavorless. As I mentioned, I get Unflavored Keto Collagen because it allows me to incorporate this supplement throughout my day without having to buy a ton of flavors. However, one thing that I’ve noticed is that all flavorless supplements are not created equally. This one is actually unflavored so, in addition to getting all the benefits of MCTs and Collagen, I can incorporate collagen in breakfast, lunch, and dinner without impacting the taste of my food.
- Clean ingredients. When I’m shopping for keto supplements, I only purchase products that are natural. This one is clean. Plus, it doesn’t have soy, dairy, or gluten.
- Designed for keto. Unlike other supplements that may have hidden carbs or other things that may kick you out of ketosis, Keto Collagen was designed for those following a keto or low-carb diet.
