Capsule, drink or powder - What is the best form of collagen to take?

With so many forms of collagen on the market, the choice as to which is the best form to take can be confusing. Is it best to take a tablet or capsule, liquid drink, or powder?

Ultimately the best form is the one that ensures consistency of use and is the most efficient and cost effective. When taking a collagen supplement, it is best taken daily to maximise the benefits so the form of collagen you choose can be quite influential on the success of your chosen collagen supplement.  


Powder reigns supreme

By far, the most effective form of collagen to take is a hydrolysed collagen powder. A hydrolysed collagen powder is a ‘predigested’ powder, meaning that is has been broken down by hydrolysis into smaller protein chains called peptides. This small peptide makes the supplement highly bioavailable for absorption and use by the body for collagen synthesis. Look for a pure and unblended powder if you want to incorporate it into your coffee, smoothies and cooking. Some collagen supplements have vitamin C or other active ingredients which may change the taste, so it is important to be aware of this when choosing how to use collagen powder.


Choose purity over fillers

Tablets and capsules may include binders and fillers, making it challenging to achieve a sufficient collagen dose. You may need to take up to 6 tablets or capsules per day which can be overwhelming, plus they will cost substantially more per serve than a collagen powder. Premade liquid collagen drinks and gels contain primarily water and preservatives, raising questions about their overall value for money and health benefit.
