Who Wants Protein Powder? Neocell Collagen Review & Giveaway

As I mentioned in this post, my mini goal is to incorporate more protein into my diet. One way I do this is through protein powder. I just had the chance to review the Neocell Collagen Sport protein powder. And, 2 of you will get try it too!

What is IN Neocell Collagen Sport?

  • 30 g of protein per serving
  • L-Glutamine
  • Amino acids
  • Multi-vitamins

What is NOT in Neocell Collagen Sport?

  • Sugar or artificial sweeteners
  • Gluten

  • Lactose

 

 
30g of PROTEIN and NO SUGAR!

This article discusses the performance benefits of using collagen, like boosting lean muscle mass, improving cardiovascular function and speeding recovery.

Coach and I both tried this product and preferred it blended in a smoothie rather than just adding water. It tasted a bit too chalky for us without blending.  I like to use a frozen banana and peanut butter with water and a scoop of Collagen sport.  And, I also used it to make my No Bake Protein Bars giving them a chocolate flavor. Delish!

And, Jill made protein pancakes using Neocell Collagen Sport; this is on my list to make!

Ultimately, the purpose Neocell Collagen Sport protein powder is not only to help you build lean muscle mass to perform better, but to help repair connective tissue as well. 

Those of you following rigorous training plans would benefit from this combination to prevent damage enabling you to train for a lifetime.

Comments

  1. I use protein powder very sparingly since my debilitating protein overload back in October. But I still use it occasionally in recipes (ie your protein bars -yum- and protein pancakes).

  2. I am in a building phase of my fitness plan. I use protein powder between my meals because it is difficult to get lean protein completely from animal sources.

  3. I use protein powder after (almost) every Crossfit workout I do. It always helps me recover faster!

  4. Right now, I am using some through Herbalife but it is soy based and turns out, it’s really only meant to be added to their shake mix and doesn’t give much protein on its own. I’m back to the researching board and if your willing to do the research – I’m willing to give it a shot :)

  5. I use protein powders as a recovery drink or a snack in between meals. Or to supplement a meal (like my breakfast oatmeal) with a little extra protein.

  6. Right now I have been using it as a post workout supplement-especially after hard workouts/heavy lifting. Helps w/ recovery. Going to start using it with some smoothie recipes and have tried it in your PB Protein Bars-YUM!

  7. I haven’t found the right protein yet. I’m diabetic and lactose intolerant so most powders tend to bloat me. I definitely need more protein in my diet, my poor muscles are starving!

  8. I try to have 65g of protein a day – mostly in the form of the cheap, nasty stuff from Sam’s Club. So that’s why you should pick me – so I can know what REAL protein powder is like :)

  9. I use them for smoothies with spinach, ground flaxseed, sometimes chia seeds and fruit!

  10. smoothies are my favorite way to use it. I also love love pro pancakes!!

  11. I add it to smoothies, and my hot oatmeal. Also make it the non-flour base of my pancakes occasionally.

    Would love to try this one.

  12. I like to add a scoop to water or milk for a post workout shake. mmm! But, I can’t wait to try your peanut butter protein bars!

  13. I use protien powder damn near everyday, either as a meal supplement or after a workout…

    Don’t know what life would be without it now!

  14. I don’t really use protein powder at all, so I need this! :) I’m pretty bad about making sure I get enough in my diet.

  15. I don’t use protein powder at all, but I was literally, just yesterday at the Vitamin Shoppe, looking for protein powder to incorporate into my diet! But there were too many choices so I just gave up, haha.

    But I love how this one has such low sugar and such high protein!

  16. oh my wallet and body need this. Let’s see right now I use protein powder mostly in my green smoothies which I drink post run or in the afternoons for an energy boost before I workout

  17. i’ll use protein in smoothies either as breakfast, or a longer weekend run. I’ve been on a barley and quinoa kick the last few weeks as well

  18. I use protein powder in my breakfast/post workout smoothies and I like to make protein pancakes/muffins!

  19. I use protein powder mostly in oatmeal. Either for breakfast or a protein boosted quick dinner after getting home from the gym at 9pm. Yuck.

  20. sadly, i use protein powder very little these days. it’s hard to balance having two little ones to cook for and get my added protein as well, but ah i used to use it every day in college, but i needed it then, i was able to work out for hours…i miss those days sometimes!!!

  21. I used protein powder in your incredible protein bars— would LOVE more powder to make MORE bars!

  22. I don’t (yet) and really want to find something that works. Lord, knows I need some help repairing tissue :)

  23. I don’t actually use protein powder right now, so that is why this would be a great time for me to start! I’d love to try out your protein bar recipe.

  24. I don’t currently use it but this brand sounds like one I could trust… I’ve been wanting to start adding it to smoothies as well!

  25. I use protein powder when making peanut butter bars. They are so good…and all of my running friends agree!

  26. I use protein powders in shakes for lunch as well as after every run.

  27. I don’t use protein powder as much as I should, but I do like to incorporate it into smoothies, oatmeal, and pancake batter!

Its a great diet supplement, cause as a mom of young kids, I don’t make time to eat a proper breakfast. So the protein works.
