The myth of collagen use in cosmetology: is it worth drinking supplements

Recently, the popularity of collagen supplements in the health and beauty industry has been growing, with many people believing in the promises of manufacturers that collagen consumption will improve the condition of their skin, hair, and nails. However, scientific evidence suggests otherwise: this trend is nothing more than a myth.

The main argument against collagen intake is that in the gastrointestinal tract, collagen is broken down by enzymes into amino acids, which are then absorbed and enter the bloodstream. It is amino acids, not collagen, that provide the body with the necessary building blocks for protein synthesis.

The body independently regulates the process of protein synthesis depending on its needs: even if we consume collagen supplements, the body will use the amino acids from them to create different proteins, not necessarily collagen.

Therefore, the idea that collagen intake directly affects the amount of collagen in the skin is not scientifically supported.

Doctors and cosmetologists who promote collagen supplements either do not fully understand the mechanisms of action of this product or, even worse, deliberately mislead their patients.

Amino acids play a key role in the synthesis of proteins in the body, including collagen. Therefore, instead of using collagen supplements, you can provide your body with a sufficient amount of amino acids through a balanced diet and special collagen-stimulating cosmetic procedures.

Be healthy, beautiful, and happy!
