Collagen and Prednisone

When you hear the word “collagen” what do you think of first?

Most people think of wrinkles…

Wrinkle cream…

But you probably don’t think of prednisone!

It makes sense that prednisone’s collagen issues would be related to some of the skin side effects, but it’s much bigger than that!


Watch my new video to find out what other side effects are related to how prednisone interferes with collagen synthesis.

Prednisone interferes with many systems in the body. One of the body systems that it causes many side effects to includes the skin and connective tissues. Some of the most common side effects include thinning skin, stretch marks, muscle loss, and muscle weakness. Many of these could be caused by a depletion of collagen.

That’s why I recommend anyone concerned about maintaining healthy skin and muscles while on prednisone to take collagen.

Below are some reliable collagen formulations I recommend. You can purchase them through my formulary, Fullscript, which is only available from licensed medical professionals like me.

You can take the collagen as a powder that you can add to smoothies, soups, drinks, or other foods.
