I had taken these supplements for about three weeks when I went for a routine colonoscopy. Following that procedure (which wipes out your good stomach bacteria), I experienced diarrhea all day long and I was still taking the supplements. One month later I was admitted to the hospital after suffering diarrhea up to 20 times a day, lost 15 lbs and was severely dehydrated. Another colonoscopy was done and I was diagnosed with microscopic collagenous colitis. Note the word collagenous.
I had never had any problems like this before. I was released from the hospital after four days and prescribed a steroid used solely for the gut. My doctor expected me to be on this medication for life because this type of colitis is considered an autoimmune disease. But after taking the steroids for ten days, my symptoms cleared. And I continue to have regular bowel movements since. I visited my doctor today, and he was amazed that it had cleared up and his response was that the supplements (which I stopped as of my hospital time) were the cause. Besides, he said the molecular makeup of collagen is too large to be absorbed properly. He called it a scam.
I’m offering my experience as a warning. You make the choice. Good luck.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Hello Sheila, my name is Samantha and I am writing to you from Beverly Hills MD. I wanted to take the time and address your review as it was very concerning to us. I cannot imagine what you must be going through, it sounds awful. I want to assure you that Beverly Hills MD stands by all of its products with the highest level of integrity. All of our products are third-party tested for quality and purity. We have not seen any type of digestive conditions arise with the Dermal Repair Complex. I want to remind you to always speak to your physician when starting any type of supplement. Especially with something as serious as a colonoscopy, anything you put into your body right after may cause a negative reaction.
While Dermal Repair Complex does not have the ability to cause any type of auto immune disease, there may have been underlying factors that were irritated by the supplement. This is why we always recommend consulting your physician above all else, especially when dealing with a prior condition. I would be more than happy to issue you a full refund for your purchase. Please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Take care Sheila.
