A London cafe has started serving up collagen inside their coffee to try and help their customers remain younger looking.

Collagen forms in the connective fibres of our body and pretty much holds them together, however, as we get older, we produce less of it, which leads to wrinkles.

At the cafe called AT Feast, they have started using collagen creamer, with owner Maggie Bolger saying ‘I’ve been devotedly adding collagen creamer to my coffee every day for the past six months and friends have commented on my glowing skin.’

However, the experts are not so sure it will help, with functional nutrition expert Catherine Sharman, founder of ready meals Après Food, says: ‘Although adding collagen to your diet contributes to the amino acid pool in the body [the building blocks of all proteins], the body will use them as it needs — which may not be for collagen production at all.’
