The brand that made drinking collagen trendy – Vital Proteins – is adding new sustainably-sourced nutrition products to their supplement collection.
Vital Proteins’ new Performance line of collagen products includes pre and post-workout powdered drink mixes tailored to meet the functional needs of today’s athlete.
In case you don’t already know, collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and is a key component of all connective tissues. Collagen provides the infrastructure of the musculoskeletal system which is essential for mobility.
PreWAVE is Vital Proteins’ pre-workout formula. It contains 140mg of caffeine for energy, as well as 5g collagen and 5g BCAA (branched-chain amino acids) to support muscle and joint health. PreWAVE also has creatine nitrate and elevATP for enhanced power output during your workout.
The post-workout mixture is RecoveryWAVE. Two scoops mixed with liquid include 20g of collagen, essential amino acids and BCAA to maximize muscle protein and collagen synthesis. Other ingredients include glutamine to help the body keep up with the training demand and electrolytes, Himalayan sea salt, and taurine to help replenish minerals lost during exercise and rehydrate.
Both the Pre and Recovery WAVEs come in 5 flavors: Passion Fruit, Guava Lime, Watermelon Blueberry, Lemon Grape, Yuzu Clementine. You can rest assured that there are no synthetic colors or artificial sugars included in either formula. In addition, they are made without fillers, binders, dairy, gluten or soy.
These supplements are available online and will also be in Whole Foods stores at the end of December.
Stay tuned for the third drink in the Performance line, an intra-workout supplement.
