With so much information out there and different types of Collagen on the market, what is the ideal way and time to take it? How much do you need to take and how long until you notice the health benefits?
First, Collagen is so very versatile! That is one of the fantastic traits about it. You can take collagen any time of the day for its benefits! Organika’s Enhanced Collagen is flavourless and odourless, so it is so effortless to add into your daily routine!
Here are a few of my favourite ways to take & use Collagen:
I do get asked frequently “how much Collagen” is too much? Personally, I like to take up to 6 tablespoons a day. This works out to 3 servings of protein a day (17 grams- per 2 ). I find that this helps keep my protein uptake adequate as well as ensure I am getting the maximum benefits for my health needs. Ideally, you don’t want to take much more than that ( especially in one serving ) as your body won’t absorb it and will utilize it for energy.
You can’t “overdo” collagen; however, it won’t be beneficial to your body if you exceed more then 2-3 tablespoons a serving as your body can’t absorb that much in one serving. Ideally, for the various benefits, I take and recommend up to 6 tablespoons a day.
