You might associate collagen with expensive wrinkle creams, but if wellness bloggers and Instagrammers have their way, you’ll soon be seeing this ingredient in a whole new light. A trend I’ve been noticing is people adding collagen powder directly into their morning cup of coffee. It’s apparently tasteless and potentially provides a whole bunch of health benefits, such as improved digestion and joint recovery.
But how did this trend start, and what the heck is collagen anyway? The answer to both questions starts with bone broth.
