What is the protein source?
Our primary protein source is an enzyme-hydrolyzed bovine collagen protein. It is non-GMO and naturally contains no lactose, gluten, or soy.
Why do you use collagen protein?
Collagen is the predominant protein in humans and other animals. Collagen protein has a unique amino acid profile and is the most critical building block for structural, supporting, and connective tissues in the body.
Why 15 grams? Other protein products offer more.
It's all about quality not quantity. Our 15 grams is absorbed almost instantly. Protein that your body uptakes and doesn't use is converted into glucose and then fat. It also releases ammonia into your body, and taxes your kidneys. The key to protein supplementation is taking only what you need and your body can use.
What is an Enzyme-Hydrolyzed Protein?
FrogFuel is naturally hydrolyzed with a proteolytic (fruit) enzyme (not heat or acids) to a molecular level of 2000-5000 daltons. This means our protein is absorbed rapidly and almost instantly through the gut and into the bloodstream, unlike normal proteins.
Why is your protein fortified?
Collagen is naturally high in certain amino acids (arginine, glycine, proline, hydroxyproline) which is why it is an effective wound care treatment. It is naturally lacking in other amino acids and we fortify those: Tryptophan, Histidine, Methionine, Glutamine, and Cysteine.
