My favourite U-Perform product is the Strawberry Active Whey & Collagen Powder. I mix it with water and have this straight after every run I do. I train 6 days a week with 3 of those sessions being hard workouts. It has definitely helped me recover quicker and train harder.

Charlie Follett

Active Whey & Collagen helps me to recover from long training weeks and is genuinely the best tasting protein around and full of collagen to aid recovery. And most importantly, it's Informed Sport approved which means it is tested against banned substances.

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 too. I usually have it with a serving of U Perform Active Greens to maximise my recovery!

Georgia Hannam

My favourite U Perform product is the active whey and collagen protein in the strawberry flavour. Since using this product I have really noticed the difference in my recovery after training as well as between sessions. It helps reduce muscle soreness and enables me to train to a good standard the day after a hard training session. I would strongly recommend this product to anyone who wants to improve their recovery regime as it is truly one of the best recovery shakes I have ever used!

Muscle damage is inevitable and is the hallmark of training but how we respond to that muscle damage is perhaps the most important factor. Important because the repair of that damage leads to adaptation. And that adaptation makes us faster, stronger, and more endurable.

Supplementing with a high quality recovery protein post-workout ensures that your body has the essential building blocks to grow and maintain muscle whilst strengthening muscle fibres to optimise performance and reduce the risk of injury.

Why does my Active Whey & Collagen packaging look different from the pictures?

We’re going through an exciting redesign of our Informed Sport products’ packaging, and as we step into a new era, you’ll see fresh packaging in your orders. Change is a good thing. But change takes time. Especially when you make change responsibly.

Because we don't believe in wasting perfectly good packaging and product - you might get a mix of old and new designs inside your orders.

Rest assured, it’s still the same high-quality product that you have come to expect and love and if you do happen to receive classic packaging, know that your order is helping to reduce waste. And if you receive anything with a fresh look, you’re one of the first, and we'd love to hear what you think.

Thank you for joining us on our journey to reduce our footprint, while maximising our impact for our community…that’s YOU by the way!

What are the benefits of using Active Whey & Collagen?

After training, your muscles need to recover and rebuild to promote adaptation. Active Whey & Collagen helps you do this faster and more effectively as it contains both Essential Amino Acids and Branched Chain Amino Acids and muscle specific Bioactive Collagen Peptides®.

U Perform Active Whey & Collagen is designed to be the foundation of any strength training and sports programme. This unique combination of whey protein and collagen peptides offers you unrivalled support with your training, performance, and recovery.

Who should take Active Whey & Collagen?

U Perform Active Whey & Collagen is ideal for anyone looking to add a high-quality protein to their diet as part of a healthy, balanced, and active lifestyle.

Why is protein important for muscle recovery?

Protein contributes to the growth and maintenance of lean muscle mass. Collagen contributes to the strength and repair of muscle fibres, connective tissue and the health and quality of our hair, skin, and nails.

How much collagen do I need?

A growing body of research evidence is suggesting that 15 grams of the muscle specific collagen peptide BODYBALANCE® combined with training will enhance body composition and performance. And that is exactly we have reformulated our best-selling Active Whey & Collagen protein powder to include 15 grams of BODYBALANCE® Bioactive Collagen Peptides® and 12g of Whey Protein.

The vast majority of research also points towards to total of between five to 15 grams of collagen per day. Though this can increase during periods of high volume or high intensity training or when recovering from an injury.

What does it taste like?

Our Active Whey & Collagen comes in 2 great flavours: Chocolate and Strawberry. We use only natural flavouring preparations. Because whey protein is sourced from dairy (cow’s milk), it typically has a creamy, dairy texture which mixes well in a shake.

Are there any dietary restrictions?

Active Whey & Collagen is not suitable if you follow a vegan or vegetarian diet or if you have a milk allergy.

How much protein do I need each day?

We would recommend between 1.2 to 2.0 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight per day for endurance and strength-trained athletes. This range is dependent on the type and intensity of the training.

We would recommend between 1.2 – 1.5g per kg of body weight being suitable and appropriate for most recreationally active adults.

Protein intake should be spaced out intermittently throughout the day and especially after exercise or training to support optimal muscle protein resynthesis.

All-in-one high protein shake designed to support muscle growth, strength and recovery

The Purpose

Active Whey & Collagen is Your Proven Advantage in the weights room, on the pitch, in the pool and on the running track. Formulated with a unique blend of whey protein & Bioactive Collagen Peptides®, proven to strengthen, repair and build muscle as well as speed up post-workout recovery.

When we strength train or take part in strenuous, high intensity or impact sports we create an an enormous amount of muscle damage and inflammation - in a good way of course - to stimulate adaptation and repair.

However, without a high-quality source of protein your muscles, connective tissue and other soft tissue simply won't be able to recover and repair, compromising your performance in the next workout.

A high-quality source of whey and collagen protein is crucial for maximising the gains from your training or activity - especially if hypertrophy is your primary goal.

Introducing BODYBALANCE® Performance Peptides®

We are constantly evolving and developing our product range, using cutting edge science to ensure that we create the best possible sports nutrition for you to optimise your performance. And that is why we are delighted to announce that we have identified a brand-new performance collagen peptide called BODYBALANCE®, which specifically targets muscle.

You may already know that our existing range of collagen products targets ligaments, tendons, articular surfaces like cartilage; and now we have an innovative new ingredient to specifically target muscle tissue and muscle fibres.

Including BODYBALANCE® in a new formulation of our best-selling Active Whey & Collagen will give you the opportunity to optimise recovery, to reduce injury and therefore enhance performance better than ever before.

Our new Active Whey & Collagen has been reformulated to ensure that each serving contains the optimal dose of amino acids and muscle specific Bioactive Collagen Peptides® to enhance your recovery, performance, and active lifestyle.

For those looking to increase or maintain muscle mass for performance and aesthetics, U Perform Active Whey & Collagen is the perfect training partner.

When to take Active Whey & Collagen?

One of our most frequently asked questions, and for good reason - the last thing you want to do is feel like you are taking your recovery nutrition products at the wrong time each day. Luckily for you, we’re going to give you our top tips to get the most out of your Active Whey & Collagen.

Our products aren’t energy products, rehydration formulas or meal replacements - it’s in the name... we’re all about the RECOVERY. And that could be from the day to day stresses and strains of an active lifestyle or post workout, race or competition.

So when we look at using Active Whey & Collagen for recovery, there is one window of opportunity that would be most optimal and a great place to start when getting into a sustainable habit to help you take your collagen daily...

Post Exercise

within 30 mins

The topic of timings has always become quite controversial recently, however. Traditionally, the fitness and scientific communities have been fixed on an ‘anabolic window’ of 15 – 60 minutes immediately post exercise as the optimal time to consume your protein.

New research is starting to buck that trend, instead suggesting that this ‘anabolic window’ is actually a lot larger than we all thought!

And so, for the regular user, fitness enthusiasts and even top-level athletes really, the exercise you are doing and quite simply just consuming sufficient protein to meet that level of exercise are actually way more important than the timing of it. Who would have thought!
