The most important thing is to get more collagen to your bones, connective tissue, skin, hair, and nails. Any way you eat or drink Whole Protein will do a great job of that!
To really get the most bang for your buck, aim for mornings or post-workout. In the morning, drink a scoop of Whole Protein with just water when you wake up. Or for a post-workout boost, put a scoop in water or a smoothie after a workout, game, or even just a long walk. Congratulations - you just made your body better!

We almost always ship your order the day after it is placed (except Sundays). You'll get an email with tracking info when it ships.
Subscribe & Save orders always ship free as well.
What's your return policy?
We offer a 30-day, no questions asked, full refund policy. We even pay the return shipping, so you don't end up with any out of pocket cost.

How does Subscribe & Save work?
When you subscribe to recurring deliveries, you get a discount on each delivery, and shipping is always free. After your first order is placed, you'll get an email giving you access to an online portal where you can easily change anything and everything about your subscription - you can skip deliveries, pause, cancel, change your address, and change your payment method. No hassle or commitment, just convenience and savings!
How much should I take?
This is largely a matter of personal preference. We generally recommend 5-7 scoops per week for most people, but hard charging athletes may want to increase that to 1.5 - 2 scoops/day.
What should I mix my Whole Protein with?
Most of the time, we just use water. You can change the ratio of powder to water for taste as you prefer, but we find most people like 1 scoop to 10oz of water.
If you'd like to mix it up (so to speak) - check out the starter guide for some recipe ideas!
Why add collagen to whey?
As humans, we need to eat protein so our bodies can build and maintain our tissues. Whey protein is similar in structure to the protein that makes up the majority of muscle. But we have many other tissues in our body that need maintenance too - bones, ligaments, tendons, skin, etc. Those tissues are made up mostly of collagen. So if we want to keep those parts of our body healthy, we need to be eating collagen. If you're interested in the biochemistry - we want more of the amino acid glycine (in collagen) to balance out the amino acid methionine (in whey and meat).
Am I already getting collagen from my diet?
It depends what you eat! Most people get some, but not enough. Our ancestors generally got much more collagen, as they ate more of the animal (called nose-to-tail eating), including much more skin, tendons, and bone marrow than most of us do now.
Does collagen get absorbed effectively by the body?
In short, yes. The collagen peptides used in Whole Protein are highly bioavailable short chain amino acids. This means that the good stuff gets into your bloodstream quickly - 90% of it within 6 hours in one study.
How can I buy Whole Protein outside the USA?
For the time being, we only ship to the USA. But we are looking into new regions - so shoot us an email to let us know where you'd like us to expand!
