This product is simply one of the best for arthritis, joint pain, and osteoarthritis! It has helped with eliminating my knee pain, even my meniscus tear seems less significant. I emailed prior to purchase one of the contacts at Great Lakes Gelatin Co., and they kindly sent back several research studies involving their product. Great costumer service! Encourage others who plan to purchase it to look for research studies, it's quite amazing. I've been using it regularly, actually more than the recommended dosage, 4 teaspoon per day, one dose in morning and one at early evening. It's recommended that one takes it early afternoon because some have reported inability to sleep when taken close to bedtime. Your vitality and physical strength does seem to increase also. I'm very impressed!

This stuff is amazing... after 4 weeks taking it I really noticed a difference in my hair and skin. Great for weight loss, it really fills you up and stops snacking. BUT... if you start to get reflux/intergestion then BE CAREFUL... after a month of taking this i started to get reflux really bad, I kept taking this as I thought it would heal my issues (which I never had that bad before) i eat paleo and have done for 1 year, my reflux in that time has been minimal. The only thing I changed was adding this to my diet. Really guttered as it was helping me loose weight. BUT after some researching I found that other people can't tolerate it either, the reflux was terrible, I nearly ended up in hospital cause of it. It took 2 weeks of full on medication to settle my stomach. My dr advised not to take this again as it wasn't right for me. It is great but be mindful if you start to get reflux heartburn etc just watch out!

Hi - the product is great. But just a warning - the advertised price on Iherb neglects to point out you'll be paying an extra £8.50 per tub in UK VAT so the actual price to you is closer to £23 than £15 - and you have to go through the rigmarole of giving your credit card details to the courier to cover that tax payment before they'll deliver - what a pain as well as misleading. Is this really a modern way to transact online? C'mon!!!!

Great product but unfortunately "does not congeal" and i purchased it as a setting agent to make healthy jellies! Instead i have a big tray if unedible goo :(

This is a great product, but the price got a bit higher and loyalty credit was changed from 10% to 5%. This product is 5 stars but I gave it a 3 due to the inconvenience. Unfortunately I won't buy from iHerb until price goes back to what it was instead of increasing every now and then...

It's really important to remember that one person's results will differ to your own. Some people said their hair got thicker, mine didn't get thicker but certainly longer a lot quicker! Have had several comments on it's sudden growth spurt recently. Unfortunately it didn't make my nails any stronger, but has generally made me feel physically stronger. I weight train, and I've definitely been able to lift heavier and bounce back quicker from hard sessions. No major difference to the skin on my face (which I was hoping for), although I would say my cellulite has lessened in appearance (not completely disappeared but I'm grateful for any improvement). I think it's definitely worth a go as some people will get the results they want from this! I have it in tea or coffee and can't taste it at all.

Use in something like juice as if you use coffee or water you will get a hoofy aftertaste.

I found that when I use to spoons of this I can taste it in my tea and it's not nice, one spoon works well though and you don't notice it.

Especially when mix in smoothies or hot teas, need to add strong flavoring ingredient to mask the taste. Seemed to improve nail strength and skin condition, but I prefer their gelatine product than this collagen one.
