When Should I Take Collagen?
February 24, 2022
Collagen is becoming increasingly popular – and that’s no surprise, given that our gorgeous Absoluters report amazing benefits from taking their daily dose - we’re talking gorgeous skin, lustrous hair, and feeling their absolute best!
We receive a lot of questions from people interested in the benefits of collagen here at AC HQ, so we’ve put together this handy guide to answer some of them. Specifically, who benefits the most from collagen – and when you should take it.
What age should I take collagen?
Perhaps one of the most common questions asked by soon-to-be Absoluters is simply this: what’s the best age to take collagen?
In some ways, the best age to take collagen is the exact age you are now! However, though everyone can benefit from an extra collagen kick, it’s especially important to think about supplementing your natural reserves of collagen from the age of 25 – that’s when our collagen levels begin to decline.
The decline can be surprisingly rapid, too – by the age of 50, we’ve lost approximately half of our natural collagen. For women, this decrease can coincide with perimenopause.
In the decades that follow, meanwhile, most people will notice their skin, hair, and nails starting to succumb to visible signs of ageing - which is where Absolute Collagen can help. Just one sachet a day helps to support your collagen levels, helping you feel your absolute best.
In other words, it’s never too late, and it’s rarely too early!
If we had to pick the absolute best age to start taking collagen, we’d suggest sometime between 25-45, getting into a routine that could reduce skin wrinkles, keep nails looking gorgeous, and maintain thicker-looking hair – however many years may pass in the meantime!
In fact, we’re super proud to welcome Absoluters of all ages, each with their own amazing journeys. That’s what makes the Absoluter community so special.
What time of day should I take collagen?
Sometimes, we at AC HQ need to dig deep into the science of collagen, breaking down the technical processes, dermatological details, and specific enriching ingredients.
At other times, the answer is easy! So, when we’re asked about the best time to take collagen, we love giving the answer: whenever you like!
Absolute Collagen contains Vitamin C, but doesn't contain any additional vitamins so it really can be taken at a time to suit you. Adding to the convenience, our nifty little collagen drink doesn’t need refrigerating, so you can take it on the go. And what’s more, it doesn’t need mixing, either - though some Absoluters prefer to take their collagen with a hot drink, a smoothie, or a yoghurt.
While the best time to take collagen is the time that works for you, we do add one small caveat: it’s best not to take your daily dose too close to a high protein meal. Collagen is a protein, and our bodies can only absorb so much in one go. Some Absoluters do, however, like to incorporate their daily dose into their workout routines!
Whatever your age, and whatever the time of day, everyone can benefit from the collagen boost provided by Absolute Collagen. It simply couldn’t be easier to start your journey towards feeling your absolute best!
