Support ligament and tendon health with HCP Powder

HCP is a light tasting hydrolysed collagen protein (bovine), rich in Type 1 and Type 3 collagen, that’s easily digested and completely dairy-free.

Collagen is the building blocks of the connective tissue and tendons within the body, this makes HCP a unique protein for supporting mobile joints, and cartilage.

HCP can be used by all age groups to strengthen and support the musculoskeletal system, especially those participating in sports or activities prone to injury.

Collagen helps boost skin, nail and hair health

Several research studies have shown that collagen supplementation can improve the skin’s hydration, elasticity, texture and density. Studies proving this benefit range between a 2.5g and 10g dosage of collagen per day. Collagen works by increasing fibroblast activity, these are located in the dermal layers of the skin.

Support Muscle Growth and Gut Health with HCP

While not the first choice for building muscle due to its lower content of BCAAs, Collagen is particularly useful as a protein source for those looking for an easily digestible, allergy-free protein. Used in conjunction with whey or vegetable proteins it can aid muscle growth and recovery.

Collagen has been found to regulate the secretion of gastric juices due to optimising acid production. Glycine and Proline, two prominent amino acids in collagen have also been shown to assist the health of stomach lining.

While beneficial for athletes and gym-goers of any age, Hydrolysed Collagen supplements are particularly useful for anyone in their 30s, 40s and 50s+ looking to protect their body as they age.

Directions & Ingredients


For benefits to hair, skin and nail health, a dose of 2.5 - 5g is sufficient.
For users looking to support ligament and tendon health, 5-10g is recommended.
If used for the above reasons along with muscle building and recovery needs, a full dose of 25g is recommend.


Consume the required dose with 100-300mls water. If muscle building and recovery is the goal, HCP is best consumed after a workout or when increased protein intake is required.

Frequently Asked Questions about Hydrolysed Collagen Peptides

How does HCP taste?

Here at Bulk HQ we think our new HCP tastes great. Provided in a combination of vanilla and chocolate based flavours, there is sure to be a flavour to suit all palates.

While the Chocolate will taste a lot like a whey shake. We do also provide HCP in raw/unflavoured, to cater for those that want maximum purity.

What is HCP best for?

HCP is best used for the benefits it provides to tendons, ligaments, bones, skin and hair. It will also be useful to build muscle, but in most cases we would recommend it is a secondary protein for this purpose.

Why did you include Vitamin C in HCP?

One major benefit of including Vitamin C in HCP is the support it can provide to joint health. It also helps to increase the body’s natural levels of Hyaluronic acid (HA) as Vitamin C is crucial for the synthesis of HA. Hyaluronic acid can be found in all tissue, linings, organs, vessels and cavities in our body and is key to maintaining joint health and lubrication of joints. *Vitamin C only included in flavoured varieties.

How is it packaged?

HCP is packaged in 750g resealable pouches.

Is the packaging for this product recyclable?

Yes! The bag can be recycled by placing it in the REDcycle drop off point bins. The included scoop can be recycled as a hard plastic in your local council pickup.

About Hydrolysed Collagen

About Hydrolysed Collagen

Hydrolysed Collagen (bovine) is a collection of amino acids and bioactive peptides that are easily digested and absorbed into the body. Collagen supplements have become very popular recently due to their multitude of health benefits.

Collagen is the most abundant protein found in the human body and it is the building blocks of connective tissue and tendons. Because of this, Collagen Protein Supplements have unique health benefits such as supporting joints, ligament and cartilage and keeping hair, skin and nails health.

Can I use Hydrolysed Collagen for muscle growth?

Whey Protein is widely regarded as the gold standard for muscle building protein source. It is a complete protein source, meaning it contains all 9 Essential Amino Acids (EAAs) and contains high levels of Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs).

Hydrolysed Collagen is made using all the parts of an animal (whether cows, pigs or fish) and as a result the amino acid spectrum is quite different. Levels of BCAAs and EAAs are lower in comparison, yet far higher in Glycine, Methionine and Alanine, while containing Hydroxyproline and Hydroxylysine which aren’t part of other protein sources.

The best way to use Hydrolysed Collagen

If you’re after a protein power to help build muscle Hydrolysed Collagen can’t compare with a Whey or Plant-Based Protein Supplement.

However, the many other standout benefits of Hydrolysed Collagen mean it can be used to perfectly compliment the muscle growing benefits of a Whey or Plant-Based Protein and are a perfect combo.

Hydrolysed collagen supports healthy joints

A recent study [1] has shown Hydrolysed Collagen can help reducing joint damage and joint pain for those suffering from osteoarthritis, as well as help strengthen joints.

For this reason, Hydrolysed Collagen supplements are particularly useful for anyone in their 30s, 40s and 50s+ wanting to look after their body as they age.

Injury prevention and recovery

Hydrolysed Collagen can be used by all age groups to strengthen and support the musculoskeletal system, especially those participating in sports or activities prone to injury.

Skin, hair and nail benefits

Collagen is a major component of your skin; many studies [2] have concluded that taking a hydrolysed collagen supplement can help increase skin elasticity and assist with keeping your skin hydrated.

In addition, studies have shown [3] that taking a Hydrolysed Collagen Supplement can help reduce the brittleness of nails by increase the strength of your nails, it may also stimulate your hair and nails to grow longer.



Hydrolysed Collagen FAQs

What is Hydrolysed Collagen Peptides?

Hydrolysed Collagen Peptides is a protein source which makes up bones, cartilage and hair. Collagen is high in the amino acids Glycine, Proline and Arginine.

When it is “hydrolysed”, it is broken down further into smaller protein chains called “peptides”. Therefore the terms “hydrolysed protein” and “collagen peptides” are interchangeable.

Is Hydrolysed Collagen Peptides suitable for vegans and vegetarians?

No, Hydrolysed Collagen Peptides is not suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

HCP comes from animals, porcine and bovine sources are the most common. While there are some attempts to manufacture plant-based collagens, all hydrolysed collagens currently available are from animal sources.

What is Hydrolysed Collagen Peptides good for?

Hydrolysed Collagen Peptides contains collagen which is the building blocks for bones, joints, cartilage and hair it is commonly used for these purposes. There is evidence for its positive effects on skin elasticity and enhancing skin texture as well as its effect on the skeletal system.

There is also some emerging evidence about collagens positive effect on the stomach lining, where it is reported to assist “rebuilding” efforts.

Is Hydrolysed Collagen good for building muscle?

Hydrolysed Collagen can be used as a protein source to enhance recovery and build muscle, however it is not the most suitable protein source for this. It is far lower in BCAAs and EAAs than dairy proteins and proteins found in the meat (muscle) of animals.

In fact, plant proteins have a better amino acid spectrum for muscle growth than collagen does. The key amino acids (BCAAs and EAAs) are the amino acids best supported by research to build muscle.

What is a typical dose of Hydrolysed Collagen?

A dose of Hydrolysed Collagen can vary depending on the purpose.

  • Studies on skin have used doses as small as 2.5 to 5 grams
  • Studies on reduction of joint pain have used around 10 gram daily
  • Studies on recovery have used doses of around 20g

The effects with collagen, like most protein sources are likely to be dose dependent.

How much fat does Hydrolysed Collagen contain?

In raw form Hydrolysed Collagen contains no fat. Once blended with flavouring and cocoa there may be very small amounts of fat present.

How much sugar does Hydrolysed Collagen have in it?

Hydrolysed Collagen contains zero sugar in raw form, however once mixed with flavouring a small amount of sugar and carbohydrates will usually be present.
