I bought this supplement called
"You theory collagen +biotin" can I take this???
It has some weird ingredients and I did my research but I want to make sure if this us ok?
It also has this thing called phenylalanine and isnt that one of the things that might make my bc ineffective?
Sorry if I sound dumb I'm "slow" :/

Pretty sure phenylalanine is present in the breast milk of mammals, so if you can drink milk, you can take it in a supplement

That’s right @llunx_ it’s just an amino acid and one of the types (the L isomer) is found in different foods we eat; the other type (the D isomer) is in medications etc.

You’re good, every single thing we consume has weird sounding chemicals in it! The NHS website has the interactions on it x

Also I looked at the label for the Youtheory collagen+biotin and I don’t even see phenylalanine on there anyways. But regardless, it’s fine to take biotin and collagen while on bc pills @bonniebenzie
