Why do you want to take collagen supplements?.

They are supposed to be great for your hair, skin and teeth as wells as being good for arthritis and muscle pain.

Watching with interest as although I'm happy to waste invest money on things like £20 cleansers I always talk myself out of collagen supplements.

It's just protein. You could eat an extra chicken breast every day.

Or eggs, a protein shake, tofu.

The digestive system breaks collagen down into its various amino acids. Eating more protein is good for hair and skin but you can't replace the collagen under the skin lost in aging by eating more of it.
