No. Collagen is a protein made up of hundreds of amino acids. When consumed, the collagen has to first go through the stomach before going to small intestine to be absorbed into the blood stream which then is delivered to all the different tissues. However, because the stomach is very acidic (pH 2.0) and with the presence of other enzymes, the collagen cannot survive and will be transformed into smaller individual amino acids which can then get absorbed into the blood stream.
So, it is advisable to not waste money on expensive collagen. However, consuming silica is better and more important as research has shown that silica can stimulate enzymes in the body to produce collagen naturally.
