They have 6-8 grams of sugar, so just enough to make it sweet but not too sweet.

Collagen peptides have major benefits for athletes. Collagen can be helpful for tendon and ligament healing and strengthening. It's a useful tool for injury prevention when paired with the right type of training and conditioning.

Consider using a collagen peptide protein supplement ~1 hour before your workout or physical therapy session.
