When should I take collagen? Morning or night?

Have you decided to include collagen as a supplement in your diet but don’t know when it is the best time to take it? If, so we invite you to keep reading.

MORNING OR NIGHT? 

Many prefer to take collagen in the morning while your stomach is empty to maximize the absorption. Other people prefer to take it at night, so their body has enough time to process the collagen and its rich amino acids while sleeping. 

To date, there is no scientific evidence that confirms that taking collagen at a specific time of the day improves its results, so you can take it whenever you want to! The most important is that you include it in your daily routine consistently.

At Offernova, we consider that the best results from this vital protein depend on the correct dosage and frequent use. This is the reason why we recommend taking our Hydrolyzed Collagen Powder every day with your favorite beverage at the most convenient time for you.

AT WHAT AGE AND HOW MUCH?

Collagen is an essential protein for your bones, skin, nails, hair, and joints health. 

At 25 years old, the natural collagen production of your body starts to reduce gradually. Because of this, as you grow older, you may experience visible signs of aging like hair loss, weak nails, saggy skin, and joint pain. 

Women can suffer a more significant loss of collagen due to physiological factors such as pregnancy and menopause. Athletes and people who usually perform an intense physical activity may also have faster collagen wear. This makes them more prone to joint pain in knees, hips, and shoulders.

The recommended dosage for our formulas is 10 grams a day. The jar itself comes with the recommended measure on its spoon, so one filled spoon would be enough. 

If you wish to increase your recommended dosage, you should consult it with your doctor or health care professional. Hydrolyzed collagen is quickly diluted in cold and warm liquids, like milk, juices or tea. You can take it with your breakfast or favorite food and take advantage of its many benefits.

Side Effects

Even though there are no known side effects for taking collagen supplements, we recommend those that need a low protein diet to avoid it. In the case of pregnant or lactating women, you must consult your doctor before taking collagen or any other nutritional supplement. 

What about you, what is your preferred time to take it?

Hi Leticia,
Thank you for your question!
Taking calcium and vitamin A, B6, B12, and D during perimenopause can be of great help. Nevertheless, we encourage you to talk to your preferred health adviser or doctor about the best vitamins for YOUR specific needs. Doing a full and personalized analysis can be of great help!
