    Is collagen supplementation good for people who develop hypertrophic scars or keloids? I thought they were due to excessive collagen?

    I have terrible scars from reconstructive surgery regardless of what I try.

    Thank you,

    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.
