When Should I be Taking My Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides?

When Should I be Taking My Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides?

When it comes to Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides we assume everyone knows the “why”, as in why they are taking it as a dietary supplement. We’re also pretty sure you know the “how”, as in how much to take and how to ingest it. Where? Well, that’s anywhere. Who? That’s you. What? See above! That leaves us with “When?”. Unfortunately, this isn’t as simple as some of the above answers and we’re not just going to say “Whenever!” because there should be some strategy deployed if you’re going to invest in buying collagen.

When Should I be Taking my Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides? It’s an important question to ask if you’re seeking to master your overall health and wellness plan. There are a couple simple strategies one should consider in determining when to supplement and they include –

  • The reason I’m supplementing collagen

People supplement collagen for many reasons. There are literally dozens of health benefits to using the product and let’s be very clear about one thing – you can achieve these benefits by taking collagen at any time throughout the day. However, you should note a couple of things – If you’re taking collagen to improve your hair, skin and nails, improve your digestive health, ease aching joints or promote tendon health we would suggest consuming collagen early in the morning every day. If you’re taking collagen because you’re seeking a friendly way of getting protein that will also help you curb your appetite in an effort to lose weight – again we would recommend early in the morning. Here’s the tricky one – if you want all of the above, but you also want the super amino acid profile and pure source of protein in your system for physical activity, muscle recovery and growth you may want to make a small change and consume it prior to, during or post-workout. Remember Zammex Nutrition’s Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides are as pure as they come and mix completely in water so it can be done when you want it done.

  • My dietary plan and preferences

This point does have some carry over from #1, but it’s important to note what you’re trying to achieve from a dietary perspective. If you’re not dieting or being calculated with what you eat feel free to refer to the above for when you should consume collagen. If you are trying to lose weight it really makes sense to take collagen early on in the day with coffee or in a smoothie. We say this because you get all of the benefits of collagen, but you also get the benefit of curbing your appetite, which we know from personal experience can be challenging. As we said, collagen can mix seamlessly in water or coffee so there should never be an added calorie requirement to consume it. If you’re a big smoothie or recipe maker adding collagen is easy and undetectable.

  • My overall health and wellness goals

All three of these questions are very important not just for when you should take collagen, but what you are doing to ensure you feel and look your best. Collagen certainly can help you in that initiative! Most of the answers to this point have been early in the morning – however if you’re going to embark on a physically strenuous workout program we strongly suggest collagen be included in pre- intra- or post-workout dieting. The pure protein and amino acids will help muscle grow and recover and you’ll also get the added joint and tendon support your need after putting your body under physical stress.

Zammex Nutrition Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides are 100% pure and are sourced naturally. They are the most soluble and bioavailable collagen peptides on the market – making them ideal in terms of answering “When should I be taking my Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides?”. We leave you with this (and it’s going to be an annoying statement): The “When” is not nearly as important as the need to be consistent. If you want results from supplementing collagen (or any dietary supplement) you have to take them every day consistently around the same time. If you do this all of the above will take care of itself!
