Today’s question comes from one of our viewers asking about collagen for leaky gut. Specifically, this individual says, “A lot of people are taking collagen, but we’re not sure what is the right amount. Can you clarify, for individuals who want to heal leaky gut, how much collagen should we be taking?”
Collagen Supports Digestive Healing
This is a fantastic question because our Clean Sourced Collagens is highly effective at helping you heal the open, leaky junctures – the tight junctures that get opened from digestive imbalances in leaky gut. Collagen can help support that closure of the gut juncture.
How to Microdose with Collagen Supplements
But the best way to consume collagen for leaky gut is actually to do what I call microdosing. So having a dose in the morning, having a mid-sized dose in the lunchtime zone, and then also right around dinner or maybe even before bedtime. But this allows the collagen to have its most effectiveness throughout the day, so every time you’re dosing it in the smaller microdosing versions or therapeutic doses, that delivers consistent delivery of the healing properties that we need collagen to take effect.
And collagen has this amazing capacity to support, not just our external skin, but our internal skin, and our digestive process, and the shape and the function of our small intestine and large intestine is skin. It’s just internalized, and there’s a mucosal membrane, and the collagen can be really helpful in achieving that.
How to Maximize Collagen Effectiveness
Now, I do recommend also – to maximize the effectiveness of collagen – is to add in our Enzyme 17, and that can be taken about 20 to 30 minutes before you take and consume your collagen. Because the Enzyme 17 has the right enzymes to break down and help your body assimilate the collagen, so you get your max absorption and then max assimilation.
So that is what I recommend for any individuals looking to use collagen to heal leaky gut. So I hope that’s helpful, and please feel free to send us more questions. I love answering your questions and helping support your body through our fabulous products here at Organixx.
