Protein Essentials was developed by three Chicago area businessmen with a passion for healthy active living. While searching for a way to naturally relieve the    minor aches and pains associated with middle age and the unnerving arrival of his AARP card, one of our founders discovered collagen. He faithfully used his newfound supplement and one day realized his pains had disappeared! 

Friends began to notice his lighter step; his ability to do more reps at CrossFit, his improved endurance while hitting golf balls out of range and an overall freedom of movement. Everyone wanted to know what The Cross-Fitter was doing differently?


Realizing collagen based supplements could help others too, he recruited the best minds from within his network of friends/businessmen - The Chemist/Golfer/PX-90-er and The Salesman/Golfer. Thus Protein Essentials was born! The three wise men united to bring the world natural, healthy collagen and gelatin based supplements that would allow everyone to enjoy an active healthy lifestyle forevermore.   


Health and nutrition are important components for an active lifestyle. The founders of Protein Essentials use Collagen and Gelatin based protein daily for themselves, their families and pets as a proactive approach to staying healthy.

Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides based protein provides a unique combination of amino acids that promotes rapid production of red blood cells for healing and conditioning. The hydrolyzed collagen in Protein Essentials is the same collagen found naturally in bones, skin, and cartilage.

The Peptan® Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides used in our products comes from cattle pasture raised in Brazil and South America. Protein Essentials products contain over 97% protein and are easily assimilated in the body which produces synovial fluids to lubricate joints, build tissue and improve skin elasticity.

In addition, Protein Essentials adds branch chain amino acids (BCAAs) and essential amino acids plus L-Glutamine to our PERFORM 100 supplement making it a complete protein to further aid in repairing connective tissue and joints and build strong lean muscle. Our collagen is A Paleo Superfood™ your body needs to remain healthy and active.
