When Is The Best Time To Take Collagen?

You may have wondered when you should be taking your Complete Collagen Plus. Personally, I take mine in the morning by adding it to my morning coffee. But the truth is, there is no real time that you should be taking collagen.

That’s because when you should take your collagen depends on why you’re taking collagen. 

Let’s take a look at some common reasons why people take collagen and the time of day they should take their collagen to best support their goals.

Collagen for weight loss

If you’re taking collagen for the potential weight loss benefits (like discussed in this article) then the best time to take it would be before a meal.

This is because, being a protein, it can help make you feel fuller, allowing you to eat less during mealtime. This can be at the beginning of the day to keep you full through to lunch, or before lunch/dinner so that you have a smaller portion during your meal.

Collagen for muscle growth

To optimize collagen for muscle growth, it’s best to have it 15-20 minutes before your workout. This can help enhance your performance, increase stamina, and prevent muscle breakdown due to collagen’s many amino acids. 

Collagen sends signals to the body that trigger the growth and repair of tissue, including muscles. [1]

If you’re looking to use collagen to grow stronger, denser muscles, then it’s best to take it around your workout period. 

Collagen for sleep

Some people also take collagen to help get a better sleep at night. Collagen can have this effect due to its high content of the amino acid glycine. 

Research has shown that taking glycine before bed can have beneficial effects on falling asleep faster, having a deeper sleep, and feeling well rested the next day. [2, 3, 4]

If you’re taking collagen to get a better sleep, take it about half an hour before hitting the hay. 

Also, because the body is recovering at night, collagen may help muscles and other tissue rebuild while you sleep.

Collagen for anything else

Collagen is taken for many other reasons. This can be for the health of your hair, skin, nails, joints, or simply to maintain healthy levels of the crucial protein as you age.

If this is your reason for taking Complete Collagen Plus, then I have good news for you: take it whenever you want.

And as for whether you should take Complete Collagen Plus with food or on an empty stomach – that doesn’t matter either. Our formula is wrapped in micelles and liposomes – lipids that protect the collagen protein and deliver it to the intestinal wall where it can be fully absorbed. As such, it doesn’t rely on other compounds for absorption, nor is it at risk of being broken down by other substances.
