Collagen Shakes: Everything You Need to Know

What are collagen shakes and what are their benefits? Known for supporting normal skin, hair and nails, as well as joint and bone health, there are a wealth of benefits associated with taking collagen supplements – especially as we age and as our natural production of the protein begins to decline.

TRR Nutrition Collagen Powder can be used to make collagen shakes and smoothies and is easy to incorporate into your daily routine. Discover more about collagen shakes and try out one of our favourite recipes below.

What are Collagen Shakes?

A collagen shake is a drink designed to provide your body with the essential amino acids glycine, proline and hydroxyproline, which play an important role in the production of collagen.

Our PRO Advanced Collagen Powder is Informed Sports certified, and contains vitamin C, hyaluronic acid and 10,000mg of collagen. By incorporating one scoop of collagen powder into your daily shake, you can help to boost your collagen levels.

Why You Should Add Collagen Shakes to Your Routine

Collagen shakes have become a staple in many athletes’ everyday routine, as nutrients such as vitamin C, copper and hyaluronic acid play an important role in supporting connective tissues during physical activity.

Before you head off to the gym, prepare a collagen shake and enjoy on the go before you begin your workout.

Can I Mix Collagen With Protein Shakes?

Collagen powder can be combined with your usual protein shake; however, all of our collagen products are high in protein, so they can be used as an alternative to protein powder if necessary.
