Does anybody here take Collagen tablets?

Boots have an offer on these at the moment in my country. I am very tempted as I have noticed my skin is becoming very crepey. If you do take them, please can you answer my following questions:

Do they work?
Are there any side effects?
Which brand do you use?
What are they made of?

Thanks grin

Not a tablet but at the moment i am taking a two week course of the Thalgo Collagen Booster.

I have about 4 days to go still. Does it work? Hmmm not sure, although i do look fresher, but then again i have just had a two week holiday at the coast. Where i can see a difference, strangely enough on the my hands. I have quite dry, lizardy hands, and they much better now..

No side affects, its a small bottle which you drink each morning.

collagen, aren't sausages full of those (in connective tissue, no?)

Nigella has always claimed eating fatty pork was the secret to her good skin grin
