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!

The product seems to have helped reduce pain in my neck, knees, and back. I also have more range of motion. Have recommended this product to several people - hope they check with their doctor and take this advise. Best advise I have received from a doctor in quite a while. Thank you, iHerb. Peter Roy, ME

and I've used many over my long life.... back in 2012 an MD on a health newsletter was talking about it and was saying: Deficiencies in glycine and proline may be one of the most overlooked and under-reported threats to our health".....I paid no attention back then and now this product came to me thru a friend and I believe it's a keeper....I deal with messy OA joints and feel a shifting in 1.5 months .....

iherb!!!!! Pretty, pretty please get this in stock again. It's a great product, but I have not been able to order it for a couple weeks.

It certainly nourishes the skin, some of the effects can be immediately noticed - a slightly glowing complexion and a feeling of well hydrated skin. In time, after the third month, an anti-wrinkle effect becomes noticeable. But more than that, something I didn't expect, I feel it has a good influence on the health of the gut. I do recommend it!

I am 35 and I finished 2 bottles .. I usually take 2 TBS every morning in my coffee .. it doesn’t taste strong .. but if I mix the powder with juice it can taste strong and meaty .. I noticed that my nails are much stronger , my hair is shinier ,but I didn’t notice a big difference in the appearance of cellulite (I read that collagen can reduce cellulite ) I will keep purchasing it .

No taste, mixes really well and I love that I can add to my coffee. Super protein coffee breaks! The only thing they could improve is the top/lid. Maybe it needs a "spout" or something. Leftover product is stuck on the top always after I pour on the spoon. As it is collagen/gelatin like it gets sticky.

Can see a difference in my skin. I just can't get over the beefy taste.

Gram for gram of protein it's much cheaper to buy Great Lakes gelatin, however this is much more convenient as it can be added to soups and smoothies or even teas or juices without setting. My fave is 1 cup coconut water, 1 bunch cilantro/coriander, 1 small lime, peeled, 1 raw egg yolk, 2 Tbsp collagen powder, pinch salt, pinch stevia (optional). Blend.

I've been taking this product for several months now & have found it works really well for me. No more hip pain from arthritis.
