Collagen Supplements: Can We Really Eat Our Way to Beauty?

 

Collagen supplements – available in pill, drink, and even jelly form - have long been touted as the secret to beautiful and youthful skin. In Japan or Korea, it is not unusual to have entire store sections dedicated to collagen supplements. When renowned beauty brand Shiseido collaborated with Hello Kitty to release “The Collagen” drink, beauty fanatics went into a frenzy!

 

The theory seems simple - consuming collagen supplements would supply the body with collagen. Perhaps so, but there are also other considerations that come into play:

              

Where does the collagen we eat go to? Collagen is used to provide strength and structure not only to the skin, but our bones, tendons, and muscles as well.

 

The food that we eat is broken down during digestion – collagen supplements being no exception. Collagen is a protein that is made from the amino acids glycine, proline, hydroxyproline, and arginine. After collagen is broken down during digestion, will it be reassembled? Or will the resulting amino acids be used for other purposes?

 

Can we really eat our way to beauty? For those who want visible results in targeted treatment areas, we recommend fillers or laser facials.
