One question that we get asked time and time again is: “are collagen supplements safe for pregnancy?”
That answer is yes- they are!
A recent article in Mother & Baby actually answered this very question… and Absolute Collagen even got a shout out!
"Absolute Collagen is infused with Vitamin C and even free from lactose, gluten and dairy. It helps to boost energy levels and promote stronger and faster-growing hair."As the article also mentions, more and more pregnant women are taking collagen supplements, even though the ‘pregnancy glow’ leaves them with gorgeous skin.
Why? Well, collagen helps bone health, improves mood, and prevents hair loss… all things expecting mums could use. Collagen also helps with gut health, and helps balance out hormonal changes that can even affect gums and sleeping patterns.
If you’re considering taking collagen while pregnant, it’s recommended that you do not exceed 70-100 grams of protein and your collagen supplement will be included in this. Absolute Collagen contains 7.7 grams of protein.
Collagen is vital post-pregnancy as well. It’s been proven to help with stretch marks and to tighten skin, and many new mothers take collagen to keep on top of their health from the inside out.
If you’re still wondering ‘are collagen supplements safe for pregnancy’, we always advise that you consult with your doctor before taking.
