Our Purpose

At Step Above Proteins we aim to improve the health and wellness of humans and pets by both providing the highest quality all-natural supplements combined with proper education.



Our team works rigorously to identify the highest quality grass fed, farm raised collagen sources available in the USA to ensure our products provide the results our customers are looking for.


We use a combination of expertise in sports nutrition and science to develop natural products that improve the health and wellness of athletes, seniors, and every day adults. Those same principles can then be reapplied for our furry friends.


With over 10 years of testing and distribution since our original collagen supplements came to market, our products have been used, reviewed, and continue to flourish due to the positive impact they have on our customers lives.


Step Above Proteins offers the highest quality collagen peptides from Bovine, providing you the nutrition you need. We have no fillers, preservatives, or artificial flavors, and our products can be used in conjunction with many of the leading healthy living regimens.
