Well I just finished this up today and was excited to write a review on this unique supplement.
Pro Strength is a Hydrolyzed Beef Collagen protein that is suspended in a solution of filtered water and glycerine to maintain its consistency.
The reason a product like this exists is because of the fact that its far more convenient than a single serving protein container that you have to buy multiples of, and the fact that alot of people cannot digest milk based protein products due to allergies.
Beef collagen protein is touted as having regenerative effects far greater than milk based proteins because of the amino profile and the source of the protein which is 100% kosher beef. All in all, this is supposed to repair muscles faster, help improve complexion, and be easier on your gut and kidneys than other traditional proteins.
I understand the price, its $50 for a 30 serving container. But whats in a serving? Only 15g of hydrolyzed protein is in each of those 30 servings so I ended up doubling the dose half of the time to give myself a more hearty protein shot of 30g verse 15g.
Now if you take into account that its $50 for a realistic 15-20 servings, the pricing looks all the more ridiculous. Now were looking at roughly $3 per serving which is much more than the heavily marketed RTD beverages like monster milk and Oh Yea protein which offer between 30-50g in each serving.
There was a time I was drinking this motor oil they call protein and I had to consciously keep telling myself that this is something edible and its ok for it to taste this way.
I should never have to lie to my brain to convince it that the thing im drinking is edible.
The taste is roughly vanilla in nature but its complimented by its super thick texture that leaves a sting of an aftertaste in your mouth. The physical appearance of the liquid is a brownish yellow which only adds to the appearance of motor oil.
Pro Strength was "stomachable" so it wont get a "0" but its the least enjoyable flavored supplement I have tried in a while.
Heres where RGN Health got it right.
The hydrolyzed beef collagen allows for very fast absorption. I noticed good recovery but nothing stellar since its just a protein. What I did notice was the lack of inflammation in my body. My run times improved drastically since my legs no longer got cramps or pumps.
My complexion stayed about the same, not even collagen protein could help the mild acne caused by animal stak.
My hair and nails are about the same as well, No fabio hair and no wolverine fingernails.
One thing I liked about the protein wasnt even the protein itself. It was the functional packaging as well as the small carrying vile that came with it. I was able to pour my liquid protein into a small plastic vile with 1oz measuring increments that allowed me to measure out and take with me the exact amount of protein I needed.
With good effectiveness and poor value, its tough to rationalize a purchase such as this to someone without a 5 figure salary. There are plenty of other high quality "dry" proteins that do the exact same thing as this, but cost a fraction of this price and dont taste like motor oil.
I could see myself recommending this product maybe if the person had a hefty bank roll, milk allergies, and needed a hydrolyzed quick absorbing protein.
Lastly I would like to thank RGN Health for letting me review this product and I think they have there hearts in the right place, and I will thank SR.com for giving me the opportunity to test out and review some of these more obscure products.
