What's Collagen Protein?
Collagen is an odourless, tasteless, dairy free protein source. It's a great environmentally friendly option and easier on the gut than other proteins like whey. There's also a bunch of new research suggesting it's particularly beneficial for gut health, joint and tendon health, recovery and hair, skin and nails. This is because it contains a unique combination of 18 amino acids, including Glycine, Hydroxyproline and Proline which account for nearly half of collagen's amino acid content.
Here's a good article on why collagen protein is better than whey.
Support Gut Health
High in Alanine
Alanine enhances performance by increasing exercise capacity and decreasing muscle fatigue. It also has antioxidant, immune-enhancing and anti-aging properties.
High in Arginine
Arginine supports heart health, reduces blood pressure, lowers blood sugar, and supports athletic performance, among other benefits.
High in Glutamic Acid
In the body, Glutamic Acid turns into glutamate. This is a chemical that helps nerve cells in the brain send and receive information from other cells. It may be involved in learning and memory. It may help people with hypochlorhydria (low stomach acid) or achlorhydria (no stomach acid).
High in Glycine
Glycine is an amino acid that helps build proteins needed for tissue and hormone maintenance. More glycine may help support heart and liver health, improve sleep, reduce diabetes risk, and reduce muscle loss.
High in Hydroxyproline
Hydroxyproline enhances Growth Performance and Collagen Synthesis.
High in Proline
Proline plays important roles in protein synthesis and structure, metabolism, and nutrition, as well as wound healing, antioxidative reactions, and immune responses.
Grass-fed Collagen Protein Powder - Unflavoured (30 serves)
100% Australian Grass-fed Hydrolysed Bovine Collagen Peptides Type I and III with an average molecular weight <1kDa (highly bioavailable).
Collagen peptides are a completely hydrolysed form of collagen protein, which means the amino acid strands of the protein are broken into individual collagen peptides making them easy to digest and highly bioavailable. Studies have shown more than 90% of collagen peptides are digested and available in the bloodstream within one hour.
Most collagen powder comes from overseas. While some brands use Australian bovine sources, they ship raw ingredients to the US to be hydrolysed then ship it all the way back to Australia. Our collagen is 100% Australian grown, hydrolysed and made.
