I've tried to google for info on restoring collagen without much luck.

My bones have been making popping and cracking sounds all day long for the past two months.

Prior to that, it happened nightly.

Lyme dr. said is sounded like a lack of collagen.

I also have loose skin, wrinkled more than I'd like for 46 yrs. old and was also reading about loss of collagen and bladder weakness. I do have IC.

Can anyone recommend what I should be doing or taking to correct this problem?

Thanks

Buhner's book says that MSM is good for restoring collagen.

I think hyaluronic acid was also good, but I forgot.

High doses of vitamin C are also good for collagen.

If you are not a vegetarian, how about bone soup, as one doc calls it: make broth from animal bones and drink.

Healthy Healing by Linda Page talked about Toki, a product you ingest. She says that everyone she knows who has tried it has experienced dramatic results in terms of skin rejuvenation in 3-6 weeks. It's a collagen drink and looks like it is at http://www.888ageless.com/. Not cheap.


A post from another forum:

Life Extension offers Neocell Super Collagen $19 for 250 capsules. Benefits:

Provides those specific amino acids (hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine) necessary to replenishing our own bodys collagen supply.*
Hydrolyzed collagen is a rich natural source of glycine, the amino acid vital for muscle growth.*
Builds bone matrix. Collagen is the mechanical strength of bone.*
Corrects weak, broken, split, ridged and damaged nail beds.*
Thickens fine hair, adds body and slows down hair loss.*
Repairs connective tissues for improved elasticity; blood vessels to help improve circulation; and promotes wound healing and a clearer complexion.*
Persons taking this supplement often see visible improvements within a couple weeks.

I have been taking it for two years and can attest to improved skin, hair, nails, range of motion, and sleep. Its also available as a powder on other sites.
