Hi! This is great, thanks. I have two questions:

1. I’ve heard liquid collagen is better than powder form. Any truth to that?

2. BeverlyHillsMD has an anti-aging supplement called “Dermal Repair Complex” and I’m curious what your thoughts are on this/if it’s BS. Here’s the video: https://youtu.be/1qxMvmav7T8 It sounds convincing, but ads often are. :)

Great article.

Would you mind linking the studies that support the claims you've made regarding ubiquinol & collagen's ability to improve skin health and appearance?

Particularly for ubiquinol -> "supplementation of 50-150mg over a 12-week period reduced several signs of aging in the skin, including improved hydration, skin thickness, elasticity, and the appearance of wrinkles".

And for collagen -> "research shows that collagen supplements improve skin elasticity, reduce wrinkles, boost hydration, and increase the density of the type of cells that produce new collagen".

It's not that I doubt the veracity of these claims. I just like to read the specifics of the studies before adding a supplement to my stack.

This is a fantastic breakdown.

Since you're already going to be supplementing collagen/ubi, if you have any kind of joint pain: add vitamin c and take this combo 30-60 min before you exercise.

Dr. Keith Baar's research is brilliant might as well get the 1-2 punch. Be beautiful, feel better.

Thanks for your feedback. Just trying to clarify if you are taking

1) Hydrolized collagen supplement (like the powder provided in the link ) or the chocolate flavored one you mention

2) adding 48mg (or 30-60 mg) of Vit C -- do you have a preferred brand/mode to do this? Tablet form/pills or powder?

(Subjects were then immediately provided with the isocaloric treatment containing 0, 5, or 15 g gelatin dissolved in a flavored low-calorie beverage containing 48 mg vitamin C.)

3) Taking the CoQ 200 mg

Thanks
