Supports Joint Health

Lactose Free Formula

Support ligament and tendon health with HCP

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, hair, skin, nails and cartilage.

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. However, 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.



HCP is lactose free and packed with protein

HCP is an extremely pure protein source coming in at over 95% protein in raw form! This means every 25g serve of HCP delivers 20g of protein with zero fats and carbs.

Free from dairy, collagen peptides like HCP is ideal for anyone experiencing digestive issues from dairy proteins or lactose intolerant individuals.

We recommend HCP be used as a secondary protein to whey or casein for those wanting additional health benefits to simply building muscle or combined with BCAA Recovery for a complete protein source.


Three delicious flavours of HCP to enjoy

Hydrolysed Collagen Peptides are light on the stomach and the tastebuds too with Rich Chocolate, Salted Caramel and Strawberry Lemonade flavours to enjoy.

A raw version of HCP is available too which is perfect to use in baking and cooking (you won’t even know it’s in there!).

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 fruity 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, you will find the Strawberry Lemonade flavour refreshing. 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.

If you’d like more information, check this article which breaks down how all of Bulk’s product packaging can be recycled.

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?

Hydrolysed Collagen 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 suitable for vegans and vegetarians?

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

Hydrolysed Collagen 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 good for?

As collagen 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.

HCP – Hydrolysed Collagen Peptides Reviews

unexpected benefits

Posted by Stephanie on March 22, 2020

Originally started taking as an anti-wrinkle supplement. Not noticed a difference there but wowie I never get DOMS anymore! Even when my legs are obliterated it’s like nothing happened zero soreness, total mobility. I could work out everyday. But I won’t. Also my nails are strong AF. Literal keratin shovels. Could easily gouge an eye out no breakage. Bought the plain powder, the taste is nasty but will continue purchasing. Good for recovery and a quick shot of pure protein if you can’t be bothered chomping on anything after a workout.

HCP - Salted Caramel

So yummy. Great flavour with a tasty punch of salted caramel. I look forward to my HCP shake every day post training blended with crushed ice & berries or banana!!

Plain but awesome

Posted by Danielle Workman on February 3, 2020

I have lots of intolerances and I have found this to be a great protein that I can handle. Sprinkled on my morning cereal and I don’t even notice

Wife loves it, it’s one of the most affordable Collagens out there plus next day delivery…awesome

Excellent product and price

Posted by Phoenix on October 22, 2019

Dissolves well in hot or cold liquid, though it can clump a bit if you stir with a spoon. I mix the raw and the chocolate together, half and half, to add to my morning coffee.

Posted by Kellie Walker on October 3, 2019

Great tasting product – a little on the sweet side especially if made with milk. Not creamy like Whey protein. I like mine made up on almond/coconut milk – tastes perfect. Dissolves quite well. I like it :)

HCP Strawberry Lemonade

Posted by Carmen on September 30, 2019

Excellent product! Taste great, highly recommend

Best tasting

Posted by Jez on September 30, 2019

Been drinking it as a hot chocolate each night. Feels like a special treat.

Good, but VERY sweet

Posted by Phoenix on September 4, 2019

Dissolves well in cold or hot liquid. I’ve been putting the chocolate flavour in my coffee every morning. The chocolate is quite mild and it’s VERY sweet – could do with about half as much sucralose IMO. I’ll be trying the plain stuff next time and just adding some cocoa powder instead.
