Collagen might be something you have heard of already, or perhaps not. U Perform is built on the knowledge and experience of our two co-founders Professor Greg Whyte OBE and James Greenwell working at the cutting edge of collagen science and technology for over 20 years. We tasked Greg to answer some of your most frequently asked questions...

What is collagen and why is it so important? 

Collagen is the single most abundant and important structural protein in the human body. It shapes our muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints & bones, even our hair, skin, and our nails, providing them with the strength and elasticity to cope with daily life, and the rigors of exercise too. 

With exercise and age, we continually break down this collagen on a daily basis, increasing our risk of niggles and injuries that can dramatically affect our sporting performance. 

Using scientifically studied and proven Bioactive Collagen Peptide® formulations, U Perform is the UK's No.1 Sports Collagen Brand - delivering products, that when taken daily are designed to optimise your recovery from exercise and injury as well as reducing the risk of injury, to ensure you reach the start line ready to perform. This is a marginal gain you don’t want to miss out on.

Ask the Prof... Your Questions Answered

Do I have to be injured to see and feel the benefits of collagen?

No, you absolutely do not. The best thing about high quality collagen supplements like ours is that they can (and should) be taken daily to support the normal maintenance, repair, function of our connective tissues, like muscle, bone, ligaments, and tendons. 

Think of them like very specific tools, to do very specific jobs, and can be used proactively to improve day to day recovery and reduce the risk of injury OR they can be used reactively when looking to improve the speed and quality of injury recovery.

Are your collagen products batch tested and safe to use?

Yes, they absolutely are! To ensure your safety, every batch of U Perform's signature collagen products is pre-market tested for banned substances under the Informed Sport program. Products undergo rigorous testing using ISO 17025 accredited methods to provide the highest level of assurance for athletes.

The Informed Sport program provides assurance that products have been tested for a wide range of substances prohibited in sport. U Perform’s co-founders represented Great Britain at elite levels, Greg at two Olympics, Greg & James at World & European Championships... so they both understand and value the importance of products that have been banned substance tested.

When is the best time to take collagen? 

The best thing about high-quality collagen supplements like ours is that they can be taken at any time to suit your lifestyle or training plan. Like with all sources of protein however, if you are taking multiple servings, we recommend doing so by spreading them out across the day, at specific meal times, in between meal times or target it at specific windows of opportunity, such as after exercise. 

So long as you are getting the collagen in and giving your body the best opportunity to absorb it and utilise it effectively then you are on the right track!
