Whether you’re new to taking collagen supplements or have just decided you’d like to try them for the first time, you’re in for a treat. With benefits for your skin, hair, nails, joints, muscles, and bones, you won’t regret introducing a daily collagen dosage into your routine.
Once you’ve decided that you could benefit from taking collagen supplements, it’s natural to wonder how much collagen per day is the optimum amount to take. It’s important to know the correct collagen dosage to take to help you to get the most out of your supplement.
How Much Collagen Per Day Should I Consume?
In terms of official guidelines, health authorities have not provided any guidelines stating how much collagen per day is the recommended amount to consume. However, a review of clinical studies in 2019 concluded that taking between 2.5 and 15 grams of hydrolysed collagen peptides each day is safe and effective.
That’s quite a wide range – but that’s because doses from a minimum of 2.5 grams will have some benefit for the skin. But this is the minimum amount we’d recommend you taking, with 15 grams the maximum for a daily serving. This ensures that you experience the benefits of collagen, without increasing your costs drastically and risking your body not utilising the total amount.
The bottom line is that taking a collagen supplement within the region mentioned above should mean you reap the rewards, which can include:
- Skin that feels fresher and firmer
- Smoother, plumper skin
- Better hydrated skin
- Hair that looks and feels healthier
- Stronger nails
- Joints relief
- Stronger bones

We also recommend making sure that you’re using a high-quality supplement – preferably one that contains other nutrients to help the collagen and provide you with the biggest bang for your buck.
How Much Collagen Per Day Will I Get With SkinGlo?
When you decide to take SkinGlo’s collagen drinks (choose between our Collagen Drink Rose Gold or our Collagen Drink Charcoal), you’ll be consuming 8,000mg of hydrolysed collagen in every sachet. This equates to 8 grams of collagen per portion, which is comfortably in the middle of our 2.5g to 15g daily collagen dosage recommendation.
Our liquid collagen drinks contain marine collagen, which is sourced from the skin of wild-caught cod that are not at risk of being endangered. Marine collagen is a form of type 1 collagen, and is the highest, most bioavailable source of collagen you’ll find on the market – that’s the kind of quality you want from your collagen supplements. Read more about marine collagen and its benefits, and how it compares to bovine collagen.
Our collagen formula also contains a whole host of other vital nutrients to give you the foundations for success. These extra beneficial ingredients include hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, and a blend of B vitamins.
How Much Collagen Should I Take Before I See Results?
With the recommended daily collagen dosage in mind, you might be wondering how long you need to take collagen for before you experience noticeable results. When you choose SkinGlo’s liquid collagen drinks, you can expect to start seeing results within 90 days, so you’ll need to stay consistent with your collagen routine.

How To Get Your Daily Collagen Dosage
You don’t need to constantly remind yourself how much collagen per day you should be consuming when you choose SkinGlo, as our handy liquid collagen sachets make it easy.
Each of our marine collagen and vegan collagen sachets contain all the daily collagen you need to meet your skin goals, so there’s no need to worry about weighing or measuring your collagen dosage. You can even take your collagen sachet with you on the go – throw it in your bag so you can get your daily collagen dosage wherever you are.

Did you know that collagen is also found in some foods? Collagen is present in:
- Bone broth
- Egg whites
- Citrus fruits
However, you’d need to buy and consume a lot of these foods to get anywhere near your daily collagen dosage – and there’d be a lot of food prep involved, which isn’t ideal when you have a busy schedule.
SkinGlo makes it easy to get your daily collagen; our daily sachets are a quick and efficient way to increase the collagen in your body and experience the benefits. Shop our full collection and discover our secrets for yourself.
