Why Do I Need to Take Collagen Powder?

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body and is often described as the glue that holds everything together. Our body’s natural production of collagen, which is essential to overall health, appearance, muscle, tendons and cartilage, diminishes significantly starting at around age 30. Sounds pretty important, doesn’t it?


Why Collagen Peptides?

When collagen is completely digested, it is in the form of small chains of amino acids called collagen peptides, which are easily absorbed and are very bioavailable to the body. Look for Type I, II, and II collagens which make up about 90% of all collagen in your body.


What's the Best Collagen Powder for Me?

The answer could just be—all of them! But, the truth is, there are many different types of collagen products and the best one for you may depend on what you are trying to achieve. Collagen, on its own, is known to support healthy joints and mobility, along with promoting healthy hair, skin, and nails.† But if your focus is on the beauty aspect, choose a collagen with added ingredients targeted for that purpose. Or, if it’s healthy joints you are seeking, look for specialty formulas with time-tested ingredients included. Most importantly when choosing your collagen, be sure it is grass-fed, pasture-raised, or wild-caught collagen—clean and sustainably sourced.


When Should I Take Collagen Powder?

Truth is, the time of day really doesn’t matter when it comes to taking your collagen. It probably depends more on your individual lifestyle, when it’s most convenient, or how your digestive system reacts. Many people like the convenience of making a smoothie or adding it to their morning coffee, while others may find they prefer to add their collagen to a meal, a sauce, or a dressing. The timing is up to you but the more important factor is that you take your collagen consistently to reap the rewards.†


How Much Collagen Do I Need?

Collagen should not be used to replace protein, however it is a plentiful source of important amino acids needed for building collagen in the body making it a great complement to protein for optimal collagen building. While consuming as little as 2.5g of collagen may provide benefits, a good rule of thumb to follow is: consume 1-2 grams of collagen for every 10 grams of non-collagen protein.

A simple example of this would look like the following:

  • A women who consumes 60 grams of protein per day would also consume 6-12 grams of collagen in addition to the other protein sources.

  • A man who consumes 120 grams of protein per day would also consume 12-24 grams of collagen in addition to the other protein sources.


Knowing Where Your Collagen Powder Comes From

The entire world gets its collagen as byproducts from the meat/beef industry so unfortunately the supply chain for ethically, humanely-raised, grass-fed beef is very tiny. You want your collagen products to come from cattle that are grass-fed and raised humanely. Be sure to look for collagen peptides that are Certified Non-GMO, such as by IGEN.
