Collagen shots? Booty

Thanks for your query. Taking in collagen tablets orally can cause hypercalcaemia as they have marine origin like shell fish sharks, which are high in calcium, so continuous usage of these tablets can raise serum calcium levels in the body causing hypercalcaemia. Inject able collagen do not cause hypercalcaemia but there can be allergic reactions to it as its mostly derived from bovine organism and can lead to disfigurement after a while. Hope it helps.
