Is Supercharged Collagen only for injured climbers?
No! Supercharged Collagen is a powerful nutritional intervention for any hard-training athlete, injured or uninjured. Daily consumption of Supercharged Collagen supports collagen synthesis, particularly in tendons and ligaments subject to intense exercise. Appropriate training (and rest) combined with one or two scoops per day of Supercharged Collagen promotes post-workout tendon, ligament, and muscle matrix recovery/strengthening...which long-term may actually lower your injury risk!
As for currently injured climbers (and other athletes), disciplined daily rehabilitation/training combined with a sound diet supplemented with Supercharged Collagen may be able to accelerate healing and return to support.
What's the optimal dose of Supercharged Collagen?
Research has shown that 10 grams of vitamin C-enriched hydrolyzed collagen, consumed on an empty stomach before training, is the minimum effective dose. (One scoop of Supercharged Collagen
contains 11 grams of top-grade hydrolyzed collagen peptides.) Uninjured climbers, then, can reap benefits by consuming one scoop of Supercharged Collagen
upon waking each morning and/or 30 to 60 minutes before upper-body training for climbing.
Climbers with achy tendons, ligaments and/or joints...we recommend consuming 15 grams or, approximately, 1.4 scoops of Supercharged Collagen
first thing in the morning and/or 30 to 60 minutes before training/climbing.Currently injured athletes engaging in targeted rehabilitation are advised to consume a 20-gram dose (~1.8 scoops of Supercharged Collagen) 30 to 60 minutes before rehab/training.
Do you have a vegan alternative with similar benefits as Supercharged Collagen?
While there is no such thing as "vegan collagen", we developed POWERPLEX Plant-Based Protein as the most advanced collagen alternative for vegan athletes. Our novel formula contains over 3 grams of collagen-specific amino acids (Glycine & Proline) per 20 gram serving, and we've augmented this with 50 mg of Vitamin C, an essential co-factor for collagen synthesis. Combined, POWERPLEX is the most powerful protein supplement for athletes wanting to support tendon, ligament, and joint health!
Is Supercharged Collagen available outside of North America?
Currently, PhysiVāntage products are available only from this web site; although we hope to have European distribution established later this year. Orders placed here will ship anywhere in the world, however, shipping fees and Customs delays are less than ideal.
Canadian orders will be shipped via US Mail to Canada Post. The postal rate can range from around $16 for a small order up to $50+ for a larger order. The customer is responsible for any VAT tax or Duty. The typical delivery time is 5 to 15 business days.
All other International orders currently ship via US Mail to the customer country's official mailing service. Shipping rates vary greatly by country and the total weight of the order. PURCHASER is responsible for any additional VAT tax or Custom's Duty that's due on delivery of the package. Typical delivery time is 2 to 4 weeks, although Customs delays can add to this transit time...and unfortunately, we've had a few customers wait 4 to 8 weeks due to Customs delays.

Where is your collagen sourced from?
We obtain our hydrolyzed collagen from one of the world's leading producers of gelatin and collagen peptides—manufactured in their state-of-the-art facilities and adhering to the strictest testing and control to ensure maximum quality, safety, and traceability. We then blend and package our unique Supercharged Collagen™ formulation at a GMP-certified, FDA-registered facility and each production run is then third-party tested for purity.
