Why Did They Add Collagen to Amino Energy?
Amino Energy is one of our hottest selling products and is used for both a Pre Workout by some, and an Amino Acid formula by others. By adding 10mg of undenatured Type II Collagen, the aim is to support healthy joints. They've also added Vitamin C which also supports collagen synthesis and provides antioxidant support.
