No evidence of benef: It’s not conventional approach to treatment of stroke to use collagen and I am not aware of studies that support its use. Let’s rather stick to evidence base best practices

Yes: I am unaware that there is any problem with that. Also consider a glyconutrient supplement. That can aid collagen and thyroid too!
