What Is Collagen?
Collagen is the body’s most abundant protein. It helps give structure to skin, hair, tendons, cartilage, bones and joints.
How Do I Use Collagen?
Our Collagen Peptides is easily the most versatile offering we have in our lineup, as it dissolves easily into hot and cold liquids and has no distinguishable flavor. One of the most popular ways Vital Proteins fans use the OG collagen powder is by scooping and stirring it into their morning coffee. Other ways to use our collagen include adding it to smoothies, salad dressings, soups and pasta sauce.
When Should I Start Taking It?
While there is no preferred age to start taking collagen, it is important to note that our body’s natural collagen production begins to decline by about 1-2% around the age of 25.
As for the best time in the day to take collagen, there is also no preferred time to take your daily serving of collagen. It can be taken in the morning, afternoon or in the evening. Happy scooping!
Is It Possible to Take Too Much Collagen?
As is the case with all our products, we recommend following our suggested serving size, which is 1-2 scoops. If you’re thinking of going above that, we recommend consulting your licensed healthcare professional.
Can You Use Collagen for Weight Loss?
Like any protein, our Collagen Peptides may promote satiety (a feeling of fullness) and can easily be added to any beverage, like coffee or post-workout shakes. We advise using this product as a food supplement only. Do not use for weight reduction.
We also recommend discussing your health goals with your licensed healthcare professional. They can best provide you with the diagnosis and treatment of any medical condition and assist you as well in deciding whether a dietary supplement will be a helpful addition to your regimen.
Is Collagen Hydrolyzed?
To put it simply: Yes, our collagen is hydrolyzed. In this process, protein (more specifically, its amino acids) has been broken down into smaller units, making collagen more easily digestible for humans because we wouldn’t be able to absorb the nutrients if we just ate cow hides or bones.
Hydrolyzed collagen is soluble in both hot and cold liquids. They are easy to mix into coffee, smoothies or even water.
