Taking TB Gland Medicine Together With Facial Whitening Supplements?
Hello doc. I am asking if you can take medicine for facial bleach (frozen cholagen), because now I am also taking medicine from the doctor from SLM 9 months, can I take the facial whitening supplement, trims?
Good morning Dwi, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Collagen is an important protein found in the connective tissue, cartilage, tendons, blood, bones and skin of our body. Among the benefits provided by collagen are maintaining skin elasticity, so this content is often used for cosmetic or beauty reasons.
Unfortunately indeed, as you age, the body produces less collagen and it causes the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. For this reason, it is important to consume collagen-rich foods to increase its production in the body, and may even take collagen supplements to meet daily needs. It's just that this should be done with a doctor's supervision, especially because of the many products whose authenticity is doubtful, because there are irresponsible elements who fake the product or do not consider the content of the product it sells.
As for your question, so far no dangerous interactions have been found between the consumption of collagen and TB drugs, considering that collagen itself is naturally produced by the body and can be triggered by the production of substances in daily food, such as mangoes, fish, shrimp, eggs , broccoli, and berries.
So we don't think it's a problem if you want to consume both. It's just worth remembering that TB drugs should be taken when the stomach is empty, and for the collagen itself, you must be careful about its use if you don't get it from a doctor's recommendation. Also, if there are symptoms that appear, you should immediately consult a doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
