Active whey & collagen protein is a unique new protein powder formulation and the world’s first next-generation recovery protein powder.
Whey protein powder is considered the most widely used supplement in sports nutrition. Most commonly associated with strength, speed, and power athletes, however, whey protein has now been shown to be beneficial in endurance-based sports too.
This is because protein has been shown, through thousands of scientific studies and through independent research, to contribute to both the growth and maintenance of muscle mass. This is why athletes’ cupboards all over the world contain our active whey & collagen protein powder.
What’s really interesting is how taking whey protein has become more mainstream. This is because more and more experts are recommending using them as part of a healthy diet.
This is partly because years of research from the European Food and Safety Authority found that protein has many more benefits beyond growth in muscle mass.
In fact, it’s been found to contribute to the maintenance of normal bones. Just one reason why shakes like active whey & collagen are no longer strictly used by athletes, but also by people pursuing a healthy diet too.
Active Whey & Collagen:
Active whey & collagen is the first-ever protein powder to combine whey protein and Bioactive Collagen Peptides®, and is scientifically formulated to increase protein synthesis and muscle growth, speed up recovery and reduce injury risk.
Each 30g serving of active whey & collagen (strawberry) contains 23.58g of whey protein and an incredible 6g of Bioactive Collagen Peptides®. Making it a truly unique protein powder.
Every 30g serving of active whey & collagen (strawberry) also contains all the Essential Amino Acids including 5.69g of Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs).
“I love all of U Perform's products. However, U Perform Active Whey & Collagen Protein is my favourite. I love this product as it helps me recover to the best of my ability and is really convenient to use after training to get in my post training protein demands. The chocolate flavoured variety tastes really great and natural too. I usually have it with a serving of U Perform Active Greens to maximise my recovery.” – Ben Fletcher OLY
Collagen is the body’s primary structural protein making up 1/3 of total body protein, it is essential for muscle growth, recovery from exercise and healthy joints, bones, and connective tissue. For serious athletes, collagen is an essential element of their nutrition and recovery programme.
The body can only produce and synthesise a certain amount of collagen, although collagen production has been shown to slow down from the age of 25+. Small amounts of collagen are present in our diet. However, this is not enough for hard-training athletes who are constantly breaking down tissue and rebuilding it.
This makes collagen supplementation essential for optimum athletic performance and injury prevention. Collagen has also been shown to speed up recovery from training, promote muscle growth, strengthen joints and connective tissue and reduces the risk of future injury.
Collagen also speeds up the recovery from existing sports injuries allowing a much faster return to training. Active whey & collagen contains the ideal balance of Bioactive Collagen Peptides® for optimum muscle growth and injury prevention.
BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids) have had a big impact in the sports, bodybuilding and athletic worlds and are essential for optimum performance. Research has shown that BCAAs reduce muscle damage from training, speed up recovery and increase muscle size, strength and power.
Active whey & collagen contains all three BCAAs: Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine.
There are 22 amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein. Of these 9 are Essential Amino Acids, meaning that they cannot be produced by the body and must be present in the diet. Active whey & collagen is a complete protein product, meaning that it contains all 22 Amino Acids, including the 9 Essential Amino Acids to ensure optimum recovery and athletic performance.
Glutamine is an important essential amino acid that is required in large amounts by hard training athletes, both to enhance muscle growth, repair, and recovery, and to maintain a healthy immune system. Active whey & collagen contains an impressive 16.84g of Glutamine precursors per 100g.
