Dr Axe's Multi Collagen choc protien is the first ive seen marketing collagen as a protien. The protien powder bizz is huge with many customers not knowing what they're getting.
Weve had a few protien posts here, but non indepth, or explaining what the different types do or what aminos are in them. I copy/pasted this together from numerous sites:
This is a good start: https://www.vitalproteins.com/blogs/stay-vital/collagen-protein-whey-difference
1)Whey protein = Branch chain aminno acids ( L-Leucine, L-Valine and L-Isoleucine.) " is a fast-digesting, complete protein that’s great for building muscle and is typically used before or after exercise because it is quickly absorbed by the body and contains branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs). BCAAs are key amino acids that your body needs for muscle synthesis. Proteins like meat, fish, eggs, and dairy are the best sources of BCAAs, so for most people eating a well-balanced diet, they are already getting enough of these amino acids and don’t need to supplement with a whey protein powder.
2)Collagen = amino acids are glycine, proline and hydroxyproline " Collagenon the other hand, is high in three amino acids that are lacking in your plant protein, whey protein and muscle meat proteins. By consuming collagen, you are getting the amino acids your body needs to properly build collagen, which is a fibrous protein that provides the strength and structure to our body. It is the protein that keeps our skin firm, hair and nails strong, and our bones and joints healthy. "
3a) Veggie quinoa, hemp and soy are "complete proteins"= "essential amino acids": shistidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine. Not all plant-based proteins contain all , but .
3b) Veggie Pea protein is a complete protein, all nine of the essential amino acids same as above, ..."but also —including branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs)—that you need to consume to effectively build muscle, That’s not true of many other plant-based options like rice":https://www.menshealth.com/nutrition/a19522523/should-you-buy-pea-protein/
NOTE: Essential and non - essential aminnos are different. looks like only collagen protien has glycine, proline and hydroxyproline in it for soft tissue.
Essential amino acids : are the ones you must get through the foods you eat because your body can’t make them. Nine out of the 20 amino acids are essential, but adults only need to obtain eight of them: valine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine and tryptophan. The ninth amino acid -- histidine -- is only essential for infants.
Nonessential Amino Acids: Alanine, asparagine, arginine, glutamine, tyrosine, cysteine, glycine, proline, serine, aspartate and ornithine are non-esssential amino acids. Nonessential is a slightly misleading label because these amino acids actually fill essential roles, but since they’re synthesized by your body, they’re not an essential part of your diet. However, you'll still be able to get nonessential amino acids via your diet. The difference is that you don't need to worry about
getting enough of these amino acids, since your body will compensate for any gaps in your diet.
Conditionally Essential Amino Acids : Of the 11 nonessential amino acids, eight are called conditional amino acids. When you’re sick or under significant stress, your body may not be able to produce enough of these amino acids to meet your needs. The list of conditional amino acids: arginine, glutamine, tyrosine, cysteine, glycine, proline, serine and ornithine.
