Can I take marine collagen during pregnancy?
The most asked question here at Simply Collagen, is if woman can take Simply Collagen during pregnancy.
While Simply Collagen is safe (no added nasties, just 100% fish skins) while you are trying to conceive, we suggest once you know you are pregnant you stop and save your collagen for after the birth. Due to hypersensitivity during pregnancy, taking marine collagen supplements is not recommended. This can result in an abnormal immune system reactions ie skin rashes and allergic reactions.
Collagen can also reduce your appetite, which is not ideal when trying to get as many quality nutrients in to your body as possible.
You may see other companies state that is ok to take collagen while pregnant, but we feel it is much better to err on the side of caution!
