When is the best time of day to take Collagen?Updated 2 months ago

This is a great question because there is certainly some conflicting advice out there about the best time to take collagen. However, the truth is that there isn’t enough compelling research to confirm that one time is better than another, so we recommend that you take it when it is most convenient for you. 🙌

There is a chance that taking it in the morning on an empty stomach may aid absorption as there is nothing in the small intestine to compete with it, but like we said, we don’t really have enough evidence to be certain about that. 

Some people may find that they prefer to take it at night as the glycine content could encourage quicker sleep onset, and therefore it might be more appropriate for you to take then if you are looking to improve sleep quality. 

Other people might find having collagen with meals like soups, smoothies, yogurt, etc. is a good way to increase their dietary protein/amino acid content, and that’s also a great way of incorporating it into your routine.

So there you have it, we recommend having your collagen at a time that’s most convenient and enjoyable for you.

We hope this helps! 🙌
