Is collagen safe to consume during pregnancy?
Lots of expectant moms ask about the safety of supplementing their diet with collagen during pregnancy and breastfeeding. In answering this question, it helps to understand a bit more about what collagen is.
What is Collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, but your body starts to produce less and lower quality collagen from the age of 25. Supplementing your diet with collagen can improve skin and hair condition, reduce wrinkles, strengthen bones, repair joints, and reduce inflammation. Collagen granules are simply a healthy, whole-food protein source and are therefore safe to take when pregnant and breastfeeding.
