Collagen Build is a natural body toning and strength formulation for anyone living an active lifestyle, or anyone wanting to tone, build and repair lean muscle. Collagen Build is formulated with a great source of Protein from BODYBALANCE® Bioactive Collagen Peptides® and Magnesium to support muscle building, repair and function.
Collagen is abundant in skin, muscles, bones, joints and connective tissue, and begins to degenerate from our mid 20s. Many people experience loss of lean muscle mass as the protein and collagen in our body breaks down due to aging and lifestyle factors.
Incorporating Collagen Build into your daily routine, particularly post workout and together with a healthy varied diet, helps to:
- Build muscle strength and support muscle function with a good source of Protein from Hydrolysed Collagen and BODYBALANCE® Bioactive Collagen Peptides®
- Aid muscle repair, recovery and maintenance with Protein, including a natural source of Branch Chain Amino Acids
- Support proper functioning of nerves and muscle tissue with Magnesium

Why should I take Collagen Build instead of another protein powder for building muscle?
Collagen Build has a different action compared to other protein powders. In fact, collagen Build is perfect to mix in with other protein powders as they can complement each other (despite being an animal source protein, collagen is not a complete protein, as it lacks the EAA Tryptophan). Collagen Build is a great source of protein and magnesium, which is essential for muscle building and repair, but it’s the specialised collagen peptides that give Collagen Build it’s point of difference. Collagen Build targets the connective tissue (endomusium, perimycium, epimycium and deep fasciae) within muscle tissue. This connective tissue has been found to have a central role in muscle quality, strength and growth.
Can I take more than one collagen product at the same time?
We do not recommend taking more than one collagen product at a time. More is not always better. If you would like to target multiple body systems, we recommend taking turns with which collagen product you use. The clinical studies that demonstrated the effectiveness of each of the collagens was done by using just one of the specialised bioactive collagen peptides, every day for the trial period (usually between 8-12 weeks). So we recommend doing the same thing (for example, you may want to take Collagen Beauty for 12 weeks to help strengthen and hydrate skin over winter, then focus on Collagen Build for 12 weeks to build and strengthen lean muscle over spring). Taking more Collagen won’t cause harm (as it is a food product that is generally considered safe) but there is only so much protein synthesis and metabolism that you can do in a day. Also, consuming too much of anything isn’t a good idea, as it takes the place of other foods in the diet which may reduce the variety of foods that you have in your day. A healthy varied diet is always the best!
