I thought they were due to excessive collagen? I have terrible scars from reconstructive surgery regardless of what I try. Thank you, Lois 0 June 12, 2017 at 7:21 am #13327 Dana Faris RDNModerator Hi Lois, I would suggest not supplementing with collagen in this case as both hypertrophic scars and keloids are due to excessive collagen build up. There are plenty of other ways you can support gut healing such as with zinc or L-glutamine. 0 Author Posts Log In Register Lost Password You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
