Hi.. The results of clinical research on collagen supplementation is not available still.. So not sure about any side effects that can occur. But still date it is not confirmed that actual use of oral collagen pills can lead to any useful results or can cause harmful side effects.. I would prefer  a healthy diet with rich source of vitamins and fibres..
