whey Protein isolate is more easily absorbed by us than other types, so that's what's recommended, at least early out when you're not getting much protein from food. Once you're getting most if not all of your protein from food, other types of protein are OK (and a lot of people don't even continue with Protein Shakes once they're far enough out to get their protein needs met through food).

Keep in mind that our altered digestive systems aren't the same anymore as a normal person's, so some things that might apply to most people won't necessarily apply to us.

How lucky, I just tried to figure this out yesterday, too. @catwoman7 is right! Once you're comfortably making sure you're getting your Protein, don't be afraid to add some collagen protein, too.

Perfect timing. I am going out to get some Protein Powder and was wondering the same thing. Thanks for the question and the answers!

Whey Protein is a complete protein. collagen protein is not. A complete protein is one source that provides all of the nine essential amino acids in adequate amounts. Collagen Protein is Incredible. But it is NOT Complete. Collagen, however, is a unique type of protein. It is not complete, meaning, it does not have all 9 essential amino acids that a complete protein requires.
