Should I Take Collagen Protein at Night?
Collagen Protein is great for those looking to add more protein to their diet. Our Gym & Tonic Collagen Protein is a pure protein that is fundamental to our body’s connective tissue, muscles and joint. It is a flavorless, odorless powder that can define muscle, reduce recovery time after physical activity and improve joint function. It is often used as an alternative to whey protein as collagen is dairy free, soy free, gluten free, free of artificial growth hormones and sourced from grass fed, pasture raised cattle.

When Should I Take Collagen Protein?
We often receive questions regarding the best time to take our Gym & Tonic. Should I take the collagen protein at night? Should I take the Gym & Tonic first time in the morning? The answer is: Whatever time works best for you! There are not studies that show one time is better than the other. Many people find it most convenient to take collagen protein with their morning coffee. Others take it in their protein shake after working out. It really depends on which specific benefits you are trying to maximize.
Collagen Protein for Natural Sleep
If you are trying to improve natural sleep and muscle repair using protein, we recommend taking the collagen protein at night before bed. Our bodies use our times of deep sleep to repair muscle tissues and also improve our immune functions. Collagen protein is the right protein to take before bed because it is a hydrolyzed protein. This makes it way easier for our bodies to digest and use throughout the night. Standards proteins require a lot of energy to break down and digest. Taking collagen protein at night will help fuel our brains to achieve the most natural sleep possible. Try adding the collagen protein to some night time tea, such as chamomile, to promote the best sleep!
