I was interested to read the article today by TC Luoma, which discusses the effectiveness of collagen for weight lifters. I recently started using this simply because it is unflavored (not a fan of flavors and sweeteners in my protein) and dissolves so easily in any liquid. I buy the Vital Proteins from Costco.
I use it by adding it to my workout shake (20 g of protein), which is a water-based drink, along with electrolyte tabs. It dissolves easily, and is unnoticeable taste and consistency-wise. I have added to to coffee in the past (you know, bullet-proof style), but I prefer just plain black coffee and don’t want to go down the rabbit hole of adding protein to everything. I also use whey for smoothies, but it gets clumpy and is noticeable when added to water-based drinks.
Anyone else use collagen? Thoughts on its effectiveness?
