So I recently started supplementing with collagen for my joint, hair and skin health. I'm 52, so I was told this would help with my saggy skin as well. I've also recently started weightlifting (about 4 weeks ago) and it was suggested I might start supplementing with Creatine as I seem to have come to a standstill on some exercises... so like a good girl I started doing some research to make sure there wasn't any kind of weird reaction between the two... and discovered that collagen actually helps in the creation of Creatine... since it's the first week of Creatine and it was suggested that I "load up" with like 20G a day for 5-7 days and then drop down to 5-7 g a day for ongoing maintenance, I was curious if taking the two was a benefit for now and maybe not so good for down the line? Or maybe not do the "load up" part since I'm doing both and then stick to a lower level of creatine for ongoing help with strength? Am I overthinking this? Not thinking it through enough? Is there a super smart person out there who can explain to me exactly what the connection is between the two?
