Do not do this: The various powders will send a high protein (solute) load to the kidneys, making them work much harder, and you do not want this if you are hypertensive or diabetic or have reduced renal function. Second, you will not receive any health benefits from collagen powder, msm powder, and probably not from ashwagenda. The body does just fine without these mixtures
