    Default Collagen

    Hi

    I saw an advert for some men's colllagen sachets, you basically eat the stuff from the sachet, which was something like 8 sachets for £32. Now, it says it can improve x, y and z, but in the nutrition on the back it says each sachet contains 7g of protein and not a lot else.

    Have I really just bought 8 expensive sachets of low protein supplements or is there more to the collagen?

    Thanks

    Dude, I don’t understand anything what you wrote.
    You would at least write a brand.

    Found this on Bodybuilding.com

    Collagen being a protein, collagen contributes to total protein intake, and has been shown to be helpful for maintaining muscle mass, particularly in the elderly. The only drawback is that collagen is not particularly high in leucine, the primary amino acid responsible for initiating muscle protein synthesis (or muscle growth). So, don't rely on collagen for all of your daily protein needs—choose a variety of quality protein sources.
