How to Use Collagen
Although it’s not what the beauty industry would like you to believe, collagen is actually ineffective if applied topically. The molecule is simply too large to be absorbed through the skin.
Instead, for collagen to work its magic, you have to consume it as a supplement.
There are no foods that have a meaningful or effective amount of collagen (except for bone broth), so that means that you need to take it as a supplement, like Perfect Keto Grass-Fed Keto Collagen, for it to be bioavailable and effective in getting the benefits listed above.
How Often Should I Take Collagen?
The minimum effective dose of collagen is 10 grams per day. One scoop of your Perfect Keto Collagen Protein powder contains 17 grams, which will provide all of the benefits listed above plus a bonus boost.
If you take a minimum of 10 grams of collagen every day, your body will begin to see the benefits.
It’s extremely important to take collagen every day. Your body loses its collagen stores by a rate of about 1% each year once you hit your late 20s / early 30s, and every day that you don’t take collagen is a day that you lose it.
Higher amounts are also safe. There is currently no lethal dose known for hydrolyzed collagen, but check in with your doctor if you plan on taking much more than the recommended daily serving.
When Should You Take It?
There’s no “best” time to take collagen, as your body will absorb and use it any time of the day, so take it whenever you like. It also won’t keep you awake at night, unlike some other supplements.
Here are some suggestions of when to take collagen:
After a Workout
Each scoop of Perfect Keto Grass-Fed Keto Collagen has about 10 grams of protein, which suggests it could be helpful to take it right after hitting the gym. This may also help in joint, muscle and tendon repair.
In the Morning
Add collagen to a morning smoothie to boost your body with amino acids, or at the end of the day in a relaxing tea.
Because Perfect Keto Collagen contains MCT oil (for the energy benefits), it can be beneficial to take it soon after waking up to boost your brain and body with energy from ketones. Just sprinkle it over your scrambled eggs or add it to your hot coffee (hint: Perfect Keto Collagen in chocolate or vanilla turns your coffee into a seriously tasty treat).
To Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth
Perfect Keto Collagen comes in both chocolate and vanilla flavors, which makes beverages, baked goods, and sweet treats decadent and delicious.
If you’re following a ketogenic diet, the opportunity to satisfy your sweet tooth can be scarce, but our collagen powder is keto-approved.
