Does drinking Collagen actually work?

It seems as though topical collagen patches work temporarily but I am wondering about the collagen powders that you drink. Do they work at all?

Thank you for your query. There is no scientific study to prove that oral collagen works in rebuilding collagen fibers. Collagen is a type of protein and after ingestion it gets broken down into amino acids and is taken up by cells , so its use is questionable. Hope it helps.
