How and When You Should Use Collagen

How and When You Should Use Collagen

Collagen is the most abundant kind of protein in the human body and is found in high quantities in bones, ligaments, tendons, and cartilage. It serves two main purposes: to provide cushioning for your joints and to offer structural support. Collagen supplementation is often recommended for older people, but in fact, its production and synthesis start to decline from your mid-20s onward. This means that you might want to consider supplementing with collagen so that your extracellular matrix, which provides structure and absorbs shock in your joints, can recover more readily between training sessions.



Collagen can be beneficial if you’re suffering from any joint pain and/or mobility restrictions. It has also been shown to speed recovery from acute injury and help slow or even reverse conditions like osteoarthritis. Yet you shouldn’t wait for such issues to arise. If you’re training hard and regularly, taking supplemental collagen can help you improve both collagen production and synthesis, which will help you recover faster and avoid eventually dealing with a bone-on-bone situation in your hips, knees, ankles, and other joints.

Momentous Collagen Shot is a revolutionary product that transforms the performance, delivery, and effectiveness of collagen supplementation. Clinical data provided by Dr. Keith Barr out of UC Davis shows that the optimal time for collagen supplementation is 30-60 minutes before exercise. The challenge with other collagen products is they aren't very mobile or conducive to taking so closely before activity. Momentous Collagen Shot is the first collagen gel that’s both easy to use and great tasting. Not only is it mobile and user friendly, it also delivers results.

The formulations between Collagen Shot and Collagen Peptides are different - both are useful in different instances.

Momentous Collagen Peptides was carefully formulated by coaches and nutritionists who prepare athletes in all sports for elite performance. It is one of the only supplements that includes all the main forms of collagen: types one, two, and three. Together, this trifecta will help your joints stay both supple and strong, whether you’re an endurance or power athlete. PEPTIPLUS® is the first ingredient that can help boost your joint health, providing type one and three collagen. FORTIGEL® is another key component of Momentous Collagen Peptides. It provides an abundant and highly bioavailable source of type-one and type-two collagen and boosts the total collagen per serving to a clinically effective 15-gram dose.

The final ingredient is vitamin C, which research shows helps improve the uptake of collagen in the body. The takeaway? This single supplement provides a bevy of health-preserving, pain-relieving, and recovery-promoting benefits for joints, as well as the peace of mind that comes from the NSF Certified for Sport and Informed Sport designations.

So whether you’re planning to go hard, heavy, or long, try taking Momentous collagen products 30 to 60 minutes before your daily workout. Your joints will thank you.
