A Collagen-Filled Beer Is Claiming To Make Drinkers More Attractive
Studies have suggested that moderate wine drinkers look better and now beer drinkers might be joining the fray. Japanese brewery Suntory has created a collagen-filled beer which they claim makes beer drinkers look better.
The collagen-filled beer is currently only available in Hokkaido, Japan and not surprisingly it is female-oriented.The beer is infused with 2 grams of collagen, a protein found in the skin and nails.
New York City-based dermatologist Dr. Neal Schultz says scoffs at the idea, telling Elite Daily:
The makers of these drinks want you to believe that the collagen you are ingesting will be delivered directly to the skin and have benefits there.
Dr. Schultz adds:
Collagen is a protein, and proteins are made up of amino acids. That collagen is going to be broken down into amino acids by the enzymes in the stomach, then will be absorbed into the body to be used where the body needs it. It is just the most abused suggestion that you can push collagen through your bloodstream and have it pump out collagen in your skin.
If you still think collagen-filled beer sounds like a good idea, perhaps you should check out where collagen comes from and then second guess your decision.
