Consumption Of Drinks Containing Collagen For Teens Aged 16 Years?
Hello, I may ask if a 16-year-old teenager can consume collagen drinks?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, collagen is one of the most common proteins found in the human body. Collagen is mainly found in bones, skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments, although it can also be found in other organs. The human body can actually produce its own collagen, but this collagen production will decrease with age.
Although many claims regarding the benefits of taking collagen supplements for healthy skin, bones, joints, increasing muscle mass, etc., studies that prove the benefits of collagen supplements themselves are still quite varied results (some indicate the benefits of collagen consumption, some are not). However, consumption of collagen supplements is known to have no certain harmful side effects, including when consumed by teenagers. Common side effects include only bad taste in the mouth, bloating / feeling full in the stomach, and burning sensation in the chest and solar plexus. Collagen supplements also have the potential to cause allergic reactions, so if after taking the supplement you experience allergic symptoms, you should immediately stop taking these supplements.
If you want to take collagen supplements, make sure you choose supplements that are already registered with BPOM, and choose a good and reliable supplement manufacturer. Also make sure you follow the rules of use listed on the packaging, do not consume more than the recommended dosage.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
