We want to hope that you’re taking a collagen supplement by now. After all, it’s a great way to keep your skin looking youthful and hydrated, keeping your hair strong and shiny, improving your nail and bone strength, and helping maintain your joints. I mean, what’s not to like?
So, if you are taking your SkinGlo collagen, you may be wondering when you should take your supplement. Well, don’t worry, we’re here for you. We’ll look at a few of the tips you might hear about taking collagen supplements.
Take it in the morning
A standard recommendation is to take it in the morning, first thing. The main reason for this is that you take the supplement on an empty stomach. This suggestion potentially has some reasoning, and we suggest you take SkinGlo on an empty stomach. However, you can take your collagen supplement on an empty stomach at whatever time of day suits you.
Take it at night
Taking it at night tends to be the other tip that is most often heard regarding collagen supplements. This is because your body recovers while you sleep, allowing your body plenty of time to process the collagen. But unfortunately, there is no evidence to back up this claim like the previous suggestion.
Take it when you have vitamin C
This suggestion has some foundation as vitamin c helps improve collagen production. Nevertheless, there is no evidence you need to consume vitamin c at the same time as collagen. However, you should ensure you’re getting your daily amount. With our SkinGlo collagen, we include vitamin C as one of the ingredients to ensure you are kept topped up and take the hassle out of worrying you’re getting enough.
What we recommend
While there are plenty of suggestions floating around, really, the best time of day to take your collagen supplement is whenever works best for you. Suppose you like to take it in the morning, great. If you prefer it as a snack during the day, great, or if you want to take it before bed, that’s also great. Either way, you’re boosting your collagen to help your skin, hair, nails, joints, and bones. We recommend that you take our supplement on an empty stomach or with a cold drink; this gives your body the best chance to use all the goodness.
