What are the benefits of collagen capsules?

Industrially produced collagen is heavily advertised, especially on the Internet and by celebrities. In the form of powders, capsules and drinking ampoules, it is intended to restore the age-related loss of collagen.

The manufacturers promise more beautiful skin, healthy cartilage and stronger ligaments and joints. In fact, studies show that this canned collagen reaches bones and joints – but in its individual components. The body breaks down the collagen into the amino acids glycine, proline and hydroxyproline.

However, the body can produce collagen itself from proline. To do this, it needs vitamin C as a coenzyme. Vitamin C is required for collagen production, similar to copper, zinc and other trace elements. These micronutrients are usually missing in the powders.

What are the alternatives?

Our IV Drips can add nutrients quickly and easily.

Supplementation of nutrients (e.g. vitamin C and zinc) is more favourable than the collagen preparations themselves.

Our injections directly under the skin (Profhilo®, mesoestetic®) provide a better and longer-lasting effect and are more cost-effective in the long term.
