What is Collagen and when should you take it?
You've always used moisturisers, serums and balms to protect your skin, but what about looking after your skin from the inside as well?
Collagen protein is available in collagen tablets and powder form (although the powder doesn't taste brilliant - take my word for it!). However, many experts claim that collagen protein, when you ingest it, gets destroyed by your stomach acids and is therefore a waste. Actually, this isn't true - collagen will be broken down by the stomach but it is then converted into amino acids, which help to build collagen.
What is collagen protein used for?
Most people use collagen supplements to support things such as improved hair, skin & nails. Collagen is said to help build stronger hair, delay the onset of wrinkles and strengthen weak nails.
When should I take collagen?
I recommend to take your supplements before you go to bed. Ideally, take the collagen with a small amount of water (so you don't get up in the night to go to the toilet!) as when you sleep, your body starts its restorative process. That's also when your body burns fat, too - bonus!
Should I take collagen in powder or tablets?
It's completely your preference, although I do find tablets easier to use. Take 2 tablets before you go to bed. The collagen powder sometimes has a chalky taste and can be difficult to swallow. Making sure you get the right amounts is key too. With a tablet, you don't need to worry about taking too much or too little.
