is it safe to take collagen supplements during pregnancy?

Dr. Nellmarie Bodenstein
Specializes in
Safe: Collagen is safe in pregnancy as long as it is not marine collagen, due to mercury that is found in marine products. That is why you may only eat one tin of tuna per week. Collagen is good for skin elasticity. No vitamin A products.
