How much Collagen should you take a day, and how long before you see results?

Taking new supplements can be very confusing when we find ourselves unsure about dosage, strength and when we can expect results the come. It is important to remember that nutritional supplements do not work overnight; lasting results will take time.

There are a lot of variables that affect how soon we can begin to see and feel the effects of nutritional supplements. Even though the daily recommended dosage should never be exceeded; not everyone decided to take the same amount. It is the same for the strength (mg) of the supplements; we all have different preferences and goals.

A simple “Collagen supplements” web search can be quite daunting when you are faced with millions of different products all promoting unique formulas, ingredients and strengths (mg). Here at Wellgard, we ensure that our supplements are of the highest quality and standard.

Our Collagen powder is 100% Pure Bovine Collagen Peptides and can be implemented into your daily diet very easily. However, we do still get asked about the daily recommended dosage, our mg levels and when results can be expected. Therefore in today’s post, we hope to clear up all of those queries for you- all in one place.

How much Collagen should you take per day?

The recommended daily allowance for Collagen Powder is between:

2.5 - 15grams.

Even though nutritional Collagen supplements are considered to be safe; exceeding the recommended daily dosage is not advised. Please remember to always check with your primary healthcare professional before exceeding the recommended dosage of any nutritional supplements!

How many mg’s of Collagen should I take per day?

Our Gold Standard Pure Collagen Hydrolysate Powder offers a daily dose of 13,000mg per serving. It is derived from 100% pure Bovine Collagen Peptides and offers benefits for your overall health and beauty from the inside out.

A daily serving of approx 2 tbsps mixed into your favourite hot or cold drink is all you need for a guilt-free health and beauty boost!

Many Collagen supplements, powders, gummies and capsules offer different mg levels per serving. Anywhere between 1,200 - 7,000 mg per day can still offer essential benefits to the skin, and body.

However, a higher mg has been generally favoured by those looking for even more help with boosting their essential Collagen protein levels; to maintain a healthy body, skin elasticity, and strong hair & nails.

How many calories in Collagen Powder?

Pure Collagen powder does not contain many calories as they are typically free from fat, sugar, cholesterol, purines and additives.

  • Bovine Collagen; typically contains less than 40 calories per 10g daily serving.
  • Marine Collagen: also contains few calories. 22 - 45 calories per 10g serving.

Nutritional Collagen can therefore be taken daily without the fear of excessive calorie intake causing un-planned weight gain due to Collagen being very low in calories!

How long does it take for Bovine Collagen to start working?

The effects of taking daily Collagen are not always obvious right away and can take time to see any immediate changes or improvements to your overall health and body. 

Collagen supplements work differently for everybody; including the amount of time it takes to notice the Collagen working to help repair our skin, joints, hair and nails. The strength (mg) of your Collagen supplements, dosage and source of Collagen are all variables that can differ from person to person. Therefore a definite time scale for nutritional Collagen to work can vary from person to person.

At Wellgard we have been able to gather all of our positive consumer feedback, along with our scientific research on Collagen intake to determine when changes can begin to be seen or felt. Daily, nutritional Collagen may need between 6-8 weeks onwards before you begin to notice or feel any changes.

The main reason why people do experience positive effects from taking daily Collagen is due to them giving up after a week or two of not being able to see any physical changes.

Don’t forget that Collagen has just as many internal benefits to our health, as it does to ur physical appearance. When it comes to Collagen improving our joints, muscles, and overall gut health - those positive effects may not always be as easy to identify! 

Keep at it with your Collagen supplements; the results you want will come, in time.

How long before you see results for Marine Collagen?

Marine Collagen supplements just like Bovine Collagen, both require at least a few weeks before any changes can become noticeable. Typically, you can begin to see an improvement in your skin’s elasticity and complexion first; in as little as 4 - 6 weeks. 

Other positive results may time more time for you to notice or feel; so do not give up on your nutritional Collagen supplements after only a week or two. The results will come. Many people have been able to see a noticeable improvement to nails, hair and skin before anything else. They can be treated as the first signs for the Collagen working towards repairing your body.
