So, if you’re taking collagen, you might be wondering when you should take it. Don’t worry, we’re here to help. We’ll look at some of the collagen supplement tips you might hear.
TAKE IT IN THE MORNING
A common recommendation is to take it first thing in the morning. The main reason for this is that the supplement is taken on an empty stomach. This suggestion may have some merit, and we recommend taking collagen on an empty stomach. You can, however, take your collagen supplement on an empty stomach at any time of day that is convenient for you.
TAKE IT IN THE EVENING
Another common recommendation for collagen supplements is to take it at night. This is due to the fact that your body recovers while you sleep, giving it plenty of time to process the collagen. However, unlike the previous suggestion, there is no evidence to support this claim.
TAKE IT WHEN YOU HAVE VITAMIN C
This suggestion has some merit because vitamin C aids in collagen production. Nonetheless, there is no evidence that vitamin C should be consumed concurrently with collagen. You should, however, ensure that you are getting your daily requirement. We include vitamin C as one of the ingredients in collagen to keep you topped up and take the worry out of worrying about getting enough.
What do we recommend?
While there are numerous suggestions, the best time of day to take your collagen supplement is whenever works best for you. If you prefer to take it in the morning, that’s great. If you prefer it as a snack during the day, that’s fine; if you prefer it before bed, that’s also fine.
In either case, you’re increasing collagen production, which benefits your skin, hair, nails, joints, and bones. We recommend taking our supplement on an empty stomach or with a cold drink to give your body the best chance of absorbing all of the nutrients.
