    Default Collagen Peptides beat whey???

    Collagen Pepetide Supplementation with Resistance Training in Elderly
    It is generally believed that the protein applied should be high in branched chain amino acids (BCAA), particularly leucine, which is known to activate several intracellular signal transduction pathways involved in initiating translation such as the mTOR signalling pathway( 16 ,17 ).

    Collagen is generally regarded as having a relatively low biological value, mainly due to the low amount of BCAA and lysine (Table 1). Nevertheless, the mixture of amino acids has been shown to be superior compared with whey protein in maintaining N balance and body weight during a low-protein diet( 18 ). In addition, collagen contains relatively high amounts of arginine and glycine, both known to be important substrates for the synthesis of creatine in the human body( 19 ).​

    Many things beat whey, like real food. Since most of the push involving protein powder was to cover up steroid use by the York Barbell Club, and the push for whey was a use for waste from cheese processing, it's not surprising.

    collagen is useful in the elderly not just for the protein availability, but for the assistance for the skin, tendons, and cartilage. I take 4-6 grams a day just for maintenance.

    I don't like to think of myself as "elderly" but at almost 67 I am fast getting there! And I have noticed a difference in joints, skin, flexibility after just a couple months use.

    Never have used powders much, alway preferred real food. Started the collagen because just too damn lazy to source materials and do the work to stay supplied w/ real bone broth.

    58 myself. I'm using some whey isolate right now to mix my cacao powder into because I ordered that instead of the nibs, and the powder ends up on my shirt if I just try to shovel that in my mouth.

    Before the order snafu it had been years since I'd had much protein powder.

    As to the collagen, I had been using the liquid type 1, but use was sporadic, could never get in the habit. Been using the Type 1 and 3 pills for a few months and never missed a day. My wife uses the Type 1 and 3 powder in her smoothies and takes a Type 2 pill for some knee issues. The stuff works.
