Everybody knows we need Collagen. But Collagen is a big, bulky molecule and that’s why is hard to absorb for us or we can get a better effect by combining it with some other products.
So why not help it, right?
Hyaluronic acid is very good for the skin as well, as women can know that from many beauty products for skin and that’s why is very good to combine them together to enhance the effect of Collagenon our skin. I would suggest 200mg.
Another good combination is with high dosages of C-complex. Such a C-complex is from Acerola cherry or Camu-Camu and u can enhance it by adding a high dosage of Ascorbic acid to the mix. C vitamin makes absorption of Collagen molecule way more than anything else.
Somebody used to mix also Glucosamine but I think it is not so necessary but feel free to add it if u wish.
If u mix all of that u have a deadly combination for absorbing the water of life to your skin and joints.
Last and the most important advice is DON’T COMBINE THAT MIX OR JUST A COLLAGEN ON ITS OWN WITH CARBS!
Carbs like to stick with collagen very much! They make collagen not elastic and not stretching and that’s why our skin has wrinkles and is dry and can break easily, also, sometimes, u can see thru your skin and it’s very fragile. Even when u combine your carbs and that mix what I suggested to u, carbs blinds effect of C vitamin, collagen, etc., by sticking with collagen and make such a solution as u can see when u caramelize a sugar. This solution is not helping u but does exactly the opposite. It blocks your arteries and causes cardiovascular problems.
Drink your Collagen or my suggested mix first thing in the morning on a fasted state and wait for some hour or two, if u can, with your carby meal. Collagen is not a complete protein and on the fasted state is digested very fast. U can do that also as a pre-workout if u workout in the morning.
If your meal is ketogenic, feel free to combine it with your fats and proteins. No harm will be done but u can wait with your meal 20-30 min after your Collagen mix for better absorption and let no other protein amino acids compete with it for the absorption.
