I am already taking collagen powder (beef collagen hydrolysate) as part of my daily supplement regimen for another purpose: bone-building. Can this double as my protein powder after work-outs? From what I am reading, it is a complete protein. And the hydrolysate form makes it readily absorbable. I hesitate to add whey protein powder on top of this to my daily supplement regimen because I don't want too much concentrated protein. Am concerned about burdening kidneys. I may already have additional burdens on kidneys.
I am a 63-y-o woman with the start of osteoporosis and am addressing it with exercise, diet and some supplements, but not the osteo drugs (which do more harm than good). My workouts are not massive at this point. But I am doing what I can daily and improving week by week.
