Sfera Collagen with L-Glutamine is a powerful combination combining just two ingredients that invite you to embark on a transformative journey towards peak performance.  

In our previous article, "The Collagen Circus: A Class Act Amongst Clowns" we outlined our dedication to sourcing premium ingredients without compromise, upholding stringent quality standards, and emphasising ethical practices. Now, we introduce you to our peak performance collagen, Sfera Collagen with L-Glutamine – a synergy of gut health and performance.

The Power of Collagen for Performance

Each 10g serving of Sfera Collagen with Glutamine boasts an optimal balance of 5 000mg of collagen and 5 000mg of L-Glutamine. This unique combo unlocks a multitude of benefits that extend far beyond ordinary collagen supplementation.

Collagen supplements have the potential to strengthen your connective tissues and help your body recover after a workout, promoting faster healing (Prowting et al., 2021). Recent research suggests that taking collagen supplements before or after your exercise routine can assist in muscle recovery (Khatri et al., 2021; Kuwaba et al., 2023).

The Glutamine Advantage

L-Glutamine is an amino acid that plays a crucial role in supporting overall well-being. In a recent study involving professional basketball players, it was found that those who supplemented with L-Glutamine exhibited significantly lower levels of muscular damage after exercise compared to those who did not (Córdova-Martínez et al., 2021). But L-Glutamine's benefits extend beyond muscle recovery; it's also a secret weapon for gut health. By fortifying the lining of your gut, glutamine plays a pivotal role in improving nutrient absorption, ultimately contributing to a healthier and more vibrant you (Achamrah, Déchelotte, & Coëffier, 2017).

A Synergistic Fusion

The true power of Sfera Collagen with Glutamine lies in the dynamic interplay between its ingredients. Collagen serves as the structural foundation, fortifying tissues and supporting post-exercise recovery by providing key nutrients required to build strong connective tissue, while L-Glutamine works tirelessly behind the scenes as your internal champion. Together, these ingredients form an unbeatable duo, each enhancing the other's effects. This teamwork is the driving force behind your athletic edge.


It's time to experience the transformative potential of collagen and L-Glutamine, a dynamic duo that empowers you to work hard, recover well and become your best. 

Choose Sfera Collagen with L-Glutamine, where science, ethics, and wellness converge. Your journey to peak performance begins here.
