You need collagen. It is vital for the healthy function of your body including skin, bone, cardiovascular system, joints etc… Collagen is an essential protein that makes up nearly 1/3 of the total amount protein in your body. The traditional way we used to get this type of protein would be in our diet via bone broths.
Bone broths are making a big comeback in the paleo diet world for all the nutrient dense benefits they give you. However, what do you do if you can’t make a broth, maybe you don’t like the thought or taste of a bone broth? The solution is Upgraded™ Collagen protein powder.

Upgraded™ Collagen Protein: Why Take It?
Dave Asprey, the Bulletproof Exec, gave a great, quick explanation in the video. He shares some of the benefits of collagen and the detail he goes into when looking to source the healthiest collagen you can.
Collagen helps form the connective tissue we need for our everyday living.
- The arteries carrying blood around your body need good collagen in the walls of the artery to be flexible and repair any damage.
- Pain-free joints have healthy cartilage which is made with collagen.
- Youthful looking skin that is elastic and healthy relies on the best collagen you can get for anti-aging effects.
Your internal organs rely on this type of protein to work optimally:
Heart, eyes, lungs, spinal discs, blood cells, muscles, bones, liver, hair, joints, nails and more.
Why It Is The Best Collagen You Can Buy
There are different ways to process collagen and different types of collagen. Upgraded™ collagen is different and improved from normal collagen because:
- It is hydrolyzed collagen
- Sourced from grassfed beef that eats only in pastures
- Beef that is ethically raised
- Enzymatically processed to keep peptides intact unlike gelatin
- Doesn’t clump in liquids
- Doesn’t taste and has a neutral flavor
How to Take Upgraded™ Collagen
A major advantage when you get your Bulletproof® protein in a bag is convenience.
- Add 1-2 Tbs of powder to your favorite hot or cold liquid like: Bulletproof® Coffee, iced Bulletproof® Coffee, Bulletproof® Whey protein drink, bone broth, soup or stew.
You heard how much Dave takes everyday, at least 1-2 tablespoons.
It is super important you understand that collagen is different to whey protein. You can put collagen in a hot drink like coffee or tea. DON’T PUT WHEY protein in a hot drink.
