High-protein Health Blend
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, essential for building muscle mass alongside a range of health benefits including repairing tissue, strengthening bones, promoting skin elasticity, the healthy reproduction of cells and improving circulation. True Collagen is a pure blend ideal for muscle development and recovery, and can be enjoyed in shakes, smoothies and recipes alongside your daily whey protein shake.
High in Protein
True Collagen has a 97% protein content ideal for supporting muscle growth, strengthening bones & repairing tissues.
Zero Carbs, Fat & Lactose
True Collagen is dairy free & contains no fat, sugar or carbohydrates in its natural form, making it keto-friendly & suitable for the lactose intolerant.
Rich Amino Acid Profile
Collagen has a high concentration of amino acids including glycine, arginine, proline & hydroxyproline proven to support joint health, repair skin damage & improve circulation.
Helps Build Muscle Mass
True Collagen helps to increase muscle mass & improve strength thanks to its glycine content utilised in the synthesis of creatine.
Boosts Skin, Hair & Nails
The amino acids found in True Collagen are essential to the structural integrity of your skin, hair & nails, giving you a beauty boost in every shake.
Hydrolysed collagen is broken down into smaller molecules that are more easily absorbed by the body.
Collagen is the most abundant compound of protein found in our bodies and acts as a sort of ‘scaffold’ to provide strength and structure. It can be found in our joints, ligaments and muscles and makes up the bulk of the structure in our skin and internal tissues.
Collagen encourages healthy cell reproduction, which promotes a wealth of health benefits. These can include supporting muscle repair and recovery, improving skin elasticity, strengthening bones, building muscle mass, improving circulation and blood flow, repairing skin damage and wounds, and strengthening hair and nails.
Our Collagen is 100% natural and sourced from bovine collagen peptides, a naturally occurring protein found in the bones, cartilage, tissue and hides of cows.
While whey protein is a complete protein source derived from cows’ milk, collagen is sourced from bovine compounds such as ligaments and hide. While collagen is slightly higher in protein content than whey, it has a lower BCAA content and therefore may be slightly less effective than whey for muscle protein synthesis. We recommend taking collagen in addition to whey protein to ensure you get the complete amino acid profile.
True Collagen is dairy free as it does not contain lactose. However, it is not vegetarian or vegan as it is sourced from bovine compounds. This is because, just as humans do, animals have collagen in their connective tissues. Eating products sourced from animals provides the highest concentration of collagen.
Our body’s production of collagen slows down as we grow. By age 25, levels of collagen have peaked and begin to slow. By supplementing collagen, we do not necessarily add to collagen stores in the body, but rather stimulate its ability to synthesise it. It can be hard to consume enough collagen through diet alone, so a supplement such as True Collagen Powder ensures that your daily needs are being met.
We suggest True Collagen to be supplemented alongside your True Whey Protein. While high in protein content, COLLAGEN does not boast an equivalent amino acid profile to WPC80 or WPI90. These amino acids, including the three BCAAs leucine, isoleucine and valine, are essential for muscle growth and recovery.
True Collagen can be taken at any time of the day as a high-protein, health-enhancing snack. Some people may prefer it as pre- or post-workout as it does not contain lactose therefore is gentle on the stomach for those with intolerances to, or are avoiding, dairy.
All of True’s supplements are naturally flavoured. We have sweetened our Collagen with stevia, which is derived naturally from a plant grown in South America and is around 200-300 times sweeter than sugar without the calories. We therefore only need very small quantities of this naturally produced sweetener to flavour our protein powders. Our in-house development team has pushed the boundaries of natural flavouring to develop completely unique flavours that contain no artificial ingredients or additives whilst maintaining a fantastic natural taste. Every flavour is made using 100% natural ingredients including the likes of real vanilla, natural cocoa and Himalayan pink salt.
