Laima and I received some Collagen Sport to try out, in both French Vanilla and Belgian Chocolate. (Check out what she thought over at Women’s Endurance Gear.)

According to NeoCell Sport, whey protein isolate is THE preferred and superior form of protein for athletes. It’s rich in essential and branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), necessary especially after strenuous workouts. Each serving of Collagen Sport™ provides a good source of daily vitamins and minerals as well as the antioxidant power of Pomegranate extract.


The Rundown:
  • 15 grams Pure Ion-Exchange Whey Protein Isolate
  • 15 grams Super Collagen™ Bioavailable Peptides
  • Rich in BCAAs
  • Good source of L-Glutamine
  • Enhanced with Exogenous Amino Acids
  • Multi-vitamin Fortification
  • Doctor Formulated
 What’s NOT in Collagen Sport™:
  • Gluten, Wheat, Sugar & Lactose Free
  • No Artificial Sweeteners or Flavors
  • No Fillers or Synthetic Ingredients
Their roster of sponsored athletes on the website is comprised mostly of mixed-martial-arts fighters, though there is an older triathlete to give it some variety. :)

I tried the product after both running and cycling workouts, mixing first with plain water and then with soymilk. Both methods are suggested on the packaging. While the powder mixed in to the water without too many lumps, it seemed to wok much better with the soymilk.

According to the nutritional breakdown, there are no sugars in the Collagen Sport and it showed – I would have preferred a sweeter taste, but that is more of what I am used to and, obviously, could add sweetener if I so desired. I applaud NeoCell for not adding it and leaving it up to the user. The fact that it is gluten-free will please some, while I am a huge fan of products without artificial additives.

With 30 grams of protein per serving (in only 123 calories plus any additional if you don’t use water), this is a dynamite way to get plenty of protein.

More information can be found on the company website, liking on Facebook, and by following them on Twitter.

  1. mix the powder with soymilk and and a small amount of Nutella in the blender. I doesn't take much Nutella so the caloric impact is minimal.
