When is the Best Time to Take Collagen?
Chelan Wilkins, RHN
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:
- First thing in the AM in my morning coffee! Collagen contains protein, so this is an excellent way for me to start my morning and keep me feeling full on those busy mornings.
- One hour before exercise! Collagen contains over 17 different amino acids, which are essential for muscle repair, recovery, and growth! Also, protein is an excellent source of long-lasting energy, as well as Collagen, is the fastest absorbing form of protein we can uptake in the body and won't leave you feeling full during those workouts.
- Night Time Tea: I love to have a tbsp. Of Organika’s Enhanced Collagen Relax in a cup of tea in the evenings. Due to its high Glycine content, Collagen helps me relax, feel rested and promote healthy and restful sleep.
