How to Take Absolute Collagen


Our premium liquid collagen supplement is pre-mixed and easy to take, formulated in the perfect dose and designed to fit effortlessly into your everyday routine. We’ve put together a handy guide to getting the most out of each dose below.

But First - What Does Absolute Collagen Taste Like?

Absolute Collagen is as absolute as it can be - it’s 8000mg of premium hydrolysed marine collagen, a splash of Vitamin C (this aids with absorption of the collagen) and a hint of natural lemon flavouring. We use collagen from freshwater fish, but don’t worry - there’s no fishy smells or tastes here.

Some Absoluters report noticing a bitter taste, and while most quickly get used to this, if you’re not a fan of the taste, we recommend mixing with food or drink of your choice. We’ve got Absoluters who take it in orange juice, tea, coffee, water, porridge, smoothies, yoghurt - even on toast! It’s completely up to you!

How to Take Absolute Collagen

Our sachets are designed with ease and simplicity in mind. Simply tear or twist open the sachet with the tab at the top, and squeeze the contents straight into your mouth, or into a snack or drink of your choice, as mentioned above. You can take Absolute Collagen at room temperature or refrigerated, it doesn’t matter - and most importantly, it doesn't affect the efficacy of the collagen.

Maxine says it’s all about finding your mojo: “Louise is all for the mid-afternoon “tisane” (in warm water) with a slice of fresh lemon, great for optimising alkaline level. Margot’s mojo is served early evening, mixed in a shot glass with fresh mint and warm water, we like to call this the “marjito”. Tim takes his in yoghurt, Lisa in her tea and as for me, I’m definitely hardcore, down in one!”

How Much Collagen Should I Take and When?

Good news - we’ve done all the hard work for you! Each sachet of Absolute Collagen is the perfect, expertly formulated dose of 8000mg of hydrolysed collagen - the most your body can process in one go. This means you never need to worry about measuring your dose or accidentally taking too much, or not enough.

We recommend one sachet a day, and advise that you don’t take Absolute Collagen with a protein-rich meal or other protein source (i.e a protein bar or shake) to ensure you get the maximum absorption of collagen. Absolute Collagen is a great fitness supplement, too, so lots of Absoluters take it after a workout for the protein boost.

You can choose to take more than one a day, as excess collagen won’t cause any harmful side effects, but bear in mind you should take these doses several hours apart otherwise you won’t be able to absorb the second dose. Consider taking one in the morning and one in the evening to ensure you get the full benefit of both doses.

For the best and most consistent benefits, we recommend taking Absolute Collagen on a long-term basis; many of our Absoluters see the most noticeable difference around 6-12 weeks.

Does Absolute Collagen Cause Side Effects?

Absolute Collagen is 100% natural, and causes no negative side effects. Collagen is produced naturally in the human body, so by taking Absolute Collagen, you’re essentially just replenishing something that your body naturally creates itself, triggering its own collagen production.

Absolute Collagen is free from allergens including dairy, lactose, soy, wheat, nuts, crustaceans, molluscs and gluten. It also contains no artificial colours or flavours, and is free from fat and cholesterol, so it doesn’t affect blood cholesterol. Learn more about Absolute Collagen’s allergen testing and safety.

It is extremely unlikely that Absolute Collagen will interfere with any medication you may be taking, but if you have any concerns about this we would recommend consulting your doctor or healthcare provider.
