Body conditioning & Performance Training
High level performance training, whether it is long distance running or weightlifting, requires a focus on nutrition and wider health. Healthy connective tissue is essential for sports performance and injury recovery. Early data looks very promising that supplementation of collagen is of benefit in supporting connective tissue function and supports may increase muscle mass – see FAQs below for studies.
Many people will want to train fasted in the morning but may struggle to optimise their energy levels to achieve their best performance.Our Coffee + Collagen with a dose of True MCT oil will give you readily available energy with the benefits of the caffeine improving endurance and alertness.
The anti-inflammatory properties of our Cacao + Collagen blend is an excellent way to recover from training with the benefit of anti-inflammatory foods having the potential to reduce delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS).

WILL I LOSE MUSCLE MASS IF I PRACTICE INTERMITTENT FASTING?
Studies show that 16-hour fasts create a 1,300% increase in human growth hormone secretion in women, and an astounding 2,000% increase in men! This statistic alone is a definitive reason to drop what you’re doing and incorporate intermittent fasting into your lifestyle immediately. HGH, commonly known as your fitness hormone, plays a huge role in your health, fitness and longevity. It actively promotes muscle growth and even further boosts fat loss by increasing your metabolism. The fact that it simultaneously aids in muscle building and fat loss explains how HGH can help you get lean and lose weight without sacrificing the beneficial muscle mass you’ve worked so hard for. Many bodybuilders are now incorporating fasting into their training cycles in order to build bigger muscles.
