Do you recommend counting the protein in the collagen a towards daily goal?Updated a month ago

The protein in collagen should count towards your protein macros if you are consuming other sources of protein in combination with collagen during the course of a day. Collagen is not complete protein but if someone is consuming other sources of complete protein throughout the day then they likely have enough essential amino acids (EAAs - building blocks of protein) in their system to utilize the protein in collagen effectively.
