    I think it is ok |
    Las Vegas, NV

    I bought this product because I am having some issues.. Hair loss and joing problems... I just started using the product so I don't know if it is working or it will. The part I don't like is that I got the one that it is supposed to dissolve in water easily but it doesn't. Not sure why

    Mixes well and actually makes my coffee taste even better, more smooth |
    North AmericaVerified Purchase

    Mixes well and actually makes my coffee taste even better, more smooth. Mixes well cold too. This one is not for recipes and will not firm up the way other gelatins do. Hydrolysate gelatin is mainly for people that need extra collegen in their diet for joints, ligaments and cartilage. I did start feeling a bit better and can move again. Yay.

    Quality Product |
    Verified Purchase

    I had been using a gelatin product for several years and noticed significant changes in joints, nails, and hair. However, my husband couldn't get past the grainy texture and refused to take it. This product dissolves quickly and thoroughly in cold water and is easily digested. So both of us are using this one. It's a little pricey compared to the former product, but very user friendly.

    Wow! It works! |
    Verified Purchase

    I actually purchased this after researching how to replenish collagen for reasons of my face losing elasticity, due to loss of collagen with age, & I don't believe that replenishment can happen externally with creams & ointments, rather internally. So, I decided to add it to a smoothie, which I only made 3 days a week (once a day, using 1 heaping Tbsp each time), mind you, the directions recommend a Tbsp TWICE/day. Suddenly, after a few weeks, I was reading the canister ( about joint care) and then it dawned on me that my knees, which had been hurting me for a couple months since I damaged them moving from my 3rd story apartment (via stairs, no elevator), were no longer hurting AT ALL!! I was very happy about that, but it gets better . . . . a couple weeks later I realized my elbows, which had pained me for about 8 years due to slipping down a wet pebble stair case (landing on my elbows) no longer hurt after leaning on my desk at work, or when bent in the middle of the night, or when resting my bent arm on the car window sill when driving - Oh my gosh, the pain is gone!! This is not a "placebo effect" -- like I said, I had no thought of it's use for my knees and elbows (don't know why, but it's true). Anyway, this stuff rocks - And, again, I haven't even been using the reocmmended dosage Needless to say, I will continue it's use!

    Must have |
    Verified Purchase

    A definite must have for Paleo/Primal/Zone followers, or anyone else seeking an extra source of good clean protein. This is the non gelling variety, and is is odorless, and tasteless. Our primary use for this is in our morning coffee. A heaping tablespoon of gelatin, half a table spoon of coconut oil, a quarter tablespoon of honey, and you have a one-ish block snack in your morning coffee.

    Not sure I buy into all the hype about this, but here's what I experienced. My joints were much less painful, even in the rain, and my fingernails , well this is the first time in my life that I've had them.

    Has taste to me |
    FloridaVerified Purchase

    Put in water & drink immediately. If it sets around a few hours it begins to get an odor. In fact, I've had to throw it out a few times. I've stopped taking it because the odor was gross. Drinking morning & night is fine if you just drink it right away. This is just my experience so most reviews look great & I don't mean to judge the product (which may be organic & wonderful for you).

    CCL INJURY |
    Verified Purchase

    I chose this product to give to my 2 1/2 year old Rottweiler who had completely ruptured his back knee ligament. After taking this product for 2 months he is able to put full weight on his leg and is healing well without surgery. I mix it in coconut water and he loves the taste. It dissolves so easily. I have been able to cut back on the amount of pain pills he was taking. I recommend it highly for CCL injuries in dogs.

    My nutritionist wanted me to take 2 TBS of this in water. I tried it and got it down. Even though it doesn't have a strong taste, the smell and the taste it does have is just too much for me. Tried to take another dose of it and I couldn't do it. I'll be seeing her tomorrow and will hopefully get some further ideas from her.

    Miracle in a can... |
    Verified Purchase

    All my life I had a head of thick, luxurious hair, no joint pain, and tons of energy...until recently. At 56, I was diagnosed with several auto immune disorders, digestive issues, and joint pain had begun in my knees and hands. Not to mention sudden hair loss...in clumps! After hundreds of hours online, researching products that would address my "leaky gut", arthritis, and adrenal fatigue, I stumbled on this miracle in a can. I mix it with an immersion blender in my coffee every morning, along with Bullteproof MCT oil. Within two weeks my friends were all complimenting me on my skin, asking if I had recently had Botox. Also...I can sit for long periods of time, with my feet tucked under me, and ZERO joint pain when I stand up! The biggest improvement is my hair. It seems that after months of extreme hair loss...it is slowing down. No longer am I freaking out at the hair in the shower and the bathroom floor. All in all, I highly recommend this product. So much so that I am buying some for my family members as well. I believe this may be the anti aging product we have all been looking for.

    I love this product because you can put it in just about anything, hot or cold. You don't taste it, or feel it when swallowing...and, it is a great source of protein and gelatin. I make bone broth, when I can, but it is not possible to always do that. This is a great substitute for that.

    The gelatin collagen has made a great difference in the appearance and condition of my skin - the fine lines around my mouth have practically disappeared, and my nails are greatly improved.

    Good stuff for green drinks |
    Freezing Cold, UtahVerified Purchase

    This is excellent stuff. It is a huge canister and really goes a long way. You get the protein without the sweetness and gritty of protein powders (which, I'm reading more and more don't work for your body the right way). I have not been able to discern a taste from this, and it is much lower in calories than protein powder. Throw it into your blender and you are good to go. It will keep you full for a longer amount of time. This kind (the green canister) is cold soluable.

    This is a life saver |
    Minneapolis, MNVerified Purchase

    So.... I am unable to make bone broth due to a few reasons. (one, being that I am lazy; two, being that I am too busy; and three, because I live in Panama and my kitchen is 90 degrees every day, no thank you. I stay away from the stove). I still want the benefits of the gelatin for my gut health. So I get Pacific Naturals organic chicken broth (pastured), and mix this in with it. Since it is the hydrolysate version, it doesn't clump and it is super easy to mix in with anything. I also mix it in with my version of "bulletproof coffee" in the morning (that I make with raw cacao and carob powder and lots of butter and coconut oil). Is it as good and as beneficial as homemade bone broth from pastured or grassfed bones? Probably not. But it is the next best thing, and it fits my lifestyle. So I am sticking with it.

    Have tried this and the Great Lakes gelatin. Both products are great! This one dissolves in cool water, the gelatin requires hot water to dissolve. Both help my hair and nails. My hair seems thicker and my nails are definitely stronger. My skin has benefited also, seems to be more clear and smooth.

    Awesome product! My 1.5 year old has suffered chronic constipation. Doctors put her on a miralax regimen. I am always looking for a natural approach and came across this. So glad I did, it is brilliant! I tried everything diet wise this is the only thing that has worked. I called the company to get the dosage for a baby and they were so helpful! Best customer service by far! The representative even emailed me scanned copies of digestion research from a book they had at the office. She emailed it from her personal email address. Customer service just isn't this awesome anymore! Great product, great company!

    Milford, Connecticut, United States, North America, Earth, Western Spiral Arm, Milky Way, Universe.Verified Purchase

    It's about the size of a coffee can (narrower, but taller) if you're not so good at imperial measuring units, like me. I thought it was a bit pricey until I saw the size of the can, now $20 seems okay. Not amazing, but okay. The taste and texture of this product is completely indistinguishable to me, even in just a glass of water. It maybe imparts a slight oiliness, that's it. It mixes easily and quickly and does not gel. I guess you want to get the one in the red can if you're looking for one that gels. I just wanted to supplement my protein and amino acid intake, and I'm doing the heck out of that thanks to this stuff.

    Verified Purchase

    I use it for inflammation, joint pain, protein, tissue repair, and to cure my dry skin. It is absorbed immediately into your system you will notice your skin becoming much softer after a week or so. You will notice a decrease in fine lines. If you have dry, flaky skin it will disappear after 2. Weeks at the most. If you have eczema this helps alleviate many of the dry, cracking, itching areas. If you have joint pain, it will alleviate it as well as taking an Advil (in my opinion) if you stop taking it for a few days your symptoms will come back very noticeably. You will get dry flaky skin again, fine lines will seem more obvious, skin will feel dry and rough (if it was like that before). Joints hurt. I stopped for two weeks amd now I am paying the price. I have been taking it for two days, but I haven't gotten any relief yet. I don't plan on ever being without this product. I am about to order my third container. I would suggest this product to everyone, I have tried so many other supplements & herbs and had some positive results but nothing has ever come close to being as effective as this supplement has been. Meaning, it's made a large impact on my health and appearance in a good way.

    Verified Purchase

    When I first started using it, I used it as recommended twice a day and had considerable stomach upset. I have a digestion problem so it is hard to tell if it was from this product or not but that is what I am assuming. I have been using one tablespoon in the morning and this seems to be okay. I haven't noticed any major changes in my overall being but likewise have not noticed any side effects. I'll keep using it as I believe it has long term benefits. The large container is nice because it will last but it is hard to grab because it is so big. The powder does mix into cold and hot liquid but noted it does not mix into all types of liquid. Carbonated liquids, at least ginger ale, will not work with this product.

    North Carolina USAVerified Purchase

    I am so pleased with this product. My dog suffered an ACL tear in his back leg last year and has gone through a difficult year while we wait for him to get back to normal. He had the operation to repair it one year ago and since then has had many relapses with a few doctors advising to have another operation. He was limping and just not healing as I had hoped. I just by chance came across this collagen product and since it said it strengthened the cartilage in joints, I thought I would give it a try. My husband and I take it as well and the results have been astounding. I am on my second container of it. Our Max is as good as new.....no limping, even running again. My husband and I are in our 60's so having stronger joints and muscle tone is good for us as well. Nails and hair feel much better too. Along with Vitamin C and garlic, Great Lakes Gelatin will be a regular addition for all three of us.

    Verified Purchase

    You might want to read the label as to the amino acid analysis. Look up and see just what is 'glutamic acid' which accounts for 11.4% of the collagen protein. Many people, including my wife, are very allergic to this ingredient many times referred to by another name. I am sure many people tolerate it well, but there are some that do not want to ingest it in any form.

The taste is minimal, unlike some other products I tried and could not swallow them due to the bad taste. I highly recommend this product!

    Extreme Constipation but Fantastic Skin |
    Verified Purchase

    Well...this is a doosy. There are so many benefits of the Collagen Hydrolysate, and for me, the best was my skin was incredible. I naturally have dry skin with a random breakout here and there...mostly on my forehead and chin. While taking the Collagen Hydrolysate, my skin looked incredible. It was smooth, stopped flaking, and my breakouts were fewer and less frequent. However, I had extreme constipation. I had read that the product could cause constipation so I would also drink a "smooth move" tea at night before bed. Nothing. Six day, and nothing. When I finally went to the bathroom on the 7th day, it was barely anything and beyond painful. I was so impressed with my skin, that I continued to take the Collagen Hydrolysate and added two natural laxatives to my morning vitamin routine. It still took me 7 days to pass anything. So this review is hard....because my skin looked so amazing. But I was so lethargic and uncomfortable from the EXTREME constipation I had to stop taking it :(

    WORKS FOR ME! |
    Verified Purchase

    My left knee has borne the brunt of sixty-plus years of falling off horses, bad PLFs (parachute landing falls), and the most recent caper slipping on tile flooring and crashing down on a Schluter strip. I was and still am too cheap to see a croaker just for my knee. So I tried home remedies ranging from emu oil, turmeric, Type II undenatured chicken collagen capsules, and burning yellow candles to Asclepius. Nothing alleviated my knee pain, and after four months of pain-racked, sleepless nights, I tried this product. I had significant pain relief within one week of taking 2 tablespoons three times a day 20 minutes before meals. And by significant pain relief I mean that I was at last able to sleep through the night and be ready for work the next day. My knee is still not fully repaired, but I am continuing this regimen as I don't heal quickly at my age. The product dissolves easily and is tasteless in the proportions of 1 tablespoon per cup of water. Delivery was prompt and packaging was sturdy. Hope this helps in your due diligence.

    My personal trainer was recommending a very expensive protein supplement, the essence of which was collagen hydrolysate for all of the benefits to hair, skin, etc. I discovered this as an alternative at 20% of the cost of the other supplement so I crossed my fingers and went for it. To my delight my skin tone has evened out, and looks so much better - and began to do so after regular use for only a few weeks! And, it mixes very easily and doesn't alter the taste of whatever you put it in! I add it to tea, smoothies, soups. Very fortifying!

    I started taking 1 tablespoon of this supplement a day in my morning juice 13 days ago. I was expecting to wait at least 30 days to see some kind of result, but I am happy to say I started noticing results in less than a week. I am a very physically active 67 year old female in good health but with the usual aging complaints - joint stiffness, arthritic pain, etc. and I do not take any medications. What I have noticed after starting this product is that not only am I feeling much less discomfort in my joints, but I am also feeling steadier on my feet, have considerably more energy, and am now able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. (Just kidding about the tall buildings part). I will definitely continue to add this supplement to my daily regimen. I have already recommended this product to my sister and I highly recommend it to everyone else!

    No taste |
    Riverside, CAVerified Purchase

    This product arrived within 3 days of placing my order. I chose this because of its ability to dissolve and remain liquid in beverages. I've been trying to eat a more paleo diet, and I have read on many sites that gelatin helps heal digestive problems. As others have reported, there is no taste to this and it does dissolve well. I've only been using it in my coffee in the morning, so I'm not sure if I'm getting all the benefits from it that I could. I do notice my nails seem stronger. It doesn't help with my hunger, but then again I am only using once a day instead of twice. I will keep using this product.

    LOVE THIS PRODUCT |
    Vernon, VT, United StatesVerified Purchase

    I am just learning the benefits of gelatin but the more I research it the more I am liking what it can do for me. I have only been taking it a little over a week and I am seeing little things so far such as my skin is looking better and my nails are better. My husband has seen a difference in his digestion which is huge for him since he never notices anything! But he has had colon issues so I think this is going to be over time a very good product for him. I recommend this product if only for its protein content but there will be alot of benefits besides that if you give it a try and this form of gelatin is the one you want if you want to just mix it is things to drink it does not get thick. I put it in my tea every morning and it doesn't change the flavor at all but it does make it alittle creamier as a matter of fact I forgot to put it in one morning and I thought my tea didn't taste as good until I realized I was missing the gelatin so it does make it taste better to me.

    I have weak folding knees. They ached all the time and would swell some days at work. I started getting knee problems at 22years old and have only found expensive glucosamine capsules to help. I saw this online and decided to take a chance and use it in place of the glucosamine. I am very happy i did! My skin got softer too! People say my skin glows. The knee pain is gone and weakness is slight. No more swelling either. I recommend this for everybody because of the amino-acid content. It is worth it to have a healthy body.

    Your body needs this and unless you boil a lot of bones for soup odds are good you aren't getting enough. Two tablespoons a day and after a month or two your hair, nails and skin improve.

    This is helping me heal |
    Florida, USAVerified Purchase

    Hi everyone. I've been using this product since May 2nd, 2014. Some background information: I'm 22 with multiple knee and back injuries and a very busy schedule. For nearly one year after a traumatic event and in the midst of a full-time school and work schedule, I ate erratically, exhibited anorexic tendencies, forgot to eat, and hardly consumed any protein. My body started sagging, I lost weight like crazy, and developed deep crow's feet, lines at the corners of my mouth, and bags under my eyes. I started taking this supplement because I screwed up my digestive tract so badly that I could hardly take anything by mouth and I figured, since my body started to consume itself because I was so negligent regarding protein intake, this would be good for a transition into a more normalized diet. This has certainly delivered. I take one tablespoon morning and evening in my smoothie (made with almond milk without carageenan) and I've started to put on weight in lean muscle, the premature lines around my eyes are starting to vanish, and the ones at the corners of my mouth are totally gone. I feel SO much better, I am no longer sore all the time, nor am I hungry and irritable like I was when I neglected my nutrition. I tried jumping straight into a diet heavy in grass-fed meats, eggs, and non-homogenized/ raw/fermented dairy, but as I've said, my digestive tract was so off-kilter that my body totally rejected the food. This has been such a wonderful supplement because, only two weeks after starting to take it, I've begun reintroducing organ meat into my diet along with egg whites with great success (as long as it's in small quantities) and I am feeling absolutely incredible. Soon, I'm hoping to cut the dose and continue healing with a diet of whole foods. Thank you so much for helping me get better :)

    Use with any liquid |

    This product works with hot or cold liquids. I use mine in a glass of cold orange juice in the morning. I put a tablespoon in a 6 ounce glass. There is a slight taste from it but nothing terrible. Will buy again!

    Love This Product!! |
    Verified Purchase

    The green can does not gel like gelatin. Its the orange can that is like gelatin. I have used this in coffee and in my water and both ways are great. I have noticed within a week the pain and stiffness in my neck has diminished considerably. The skin on my face looks much younger. I have been using this product now for three months and I still love it.

    Mild tasting, no side effects, dissolves easily |
    Bedford, NHVerified Purchase

    This is my first experience with a collagen supplement, so I did not know what to expect. I bought this for me (51 and peri-menopausal) and my husband (47) to try. We both have only been taking the supplements twice daily for two weeks. We each take one tablespoon upon waking and one tablespoon right before bed. Neither of us have noticed any side effects good or bad. We will most likely continue using this for several more weeks, and I will update my review then. I bought this because we both have had knee pain through our lives, and I wanted to try to help improve my skin. I do not believe in "miracle" products, but I do believe that some products can help supplement an already healthy lifestyle. I am hoping this product does that. If you lead an unhealthy lifestyle and expect this supplement (or any other) to be your savior, I think your expectations are unrealistic, and you probably will be disappointed.

    Best gelatin |
    Verified Purchase

    This is the best gelatin to use to add extra protein and collagen to your diet. It's great for hair, nails and skin. I use it every day in either my morning coffee, juice or a smoothie. It never clumps or adds grittiness. It doesn't add a strange flavor either.

    Great Lakes Gelatin, Collagen Hydrolysate (Kosher) 16-Ounce/Pack of 3 |
    Verified Purchase

    This was recommended to me by my holistic doctor as what she takes. I have been taking the recommended dose of 1 heaping Tbs. twice a day since my order arrived on April 22 and I have already noticed a great relief from severe tendon pain in my left thumb. Some reviewers have taken longer to get results so I am thrilled to have relief so quickly. I also have been using anti-inflammatories cumin and ginger and I take several antioxidants as well as hyaluronic acid so that may be why this has worked so fast for me.... don't know.... don't care.... just glad! This dissolves completely and instantly in hot or warm liquids and just a little slower in cold and has absolutely no flavor of its own. One heaping Tbs contains 25 calories with 6 grams of very high quality protein. As an added benefit I've noticed it suppresses my appetite. This stuff is so good for so many parts of a person's body I can't wait to see what other benefits will become evident.

    Not Organic |
    Boston

    GoBio Organics offers a Certified Organic Porcine product in powder, sheet and capsule form. If Great Lakes wanted to offer a truly organic product they could. I guess profit margin is more important. My search for a truly organic gelatin for both health and baking needs is over. :) Yeah!!!! I bought the capsule form here on Amazon but their website offers more products etc. Looking forward to gorgeous skin and a better baking product without the worry that I'm ingesting hormones or GMO's. UPDATE: To follow is GoBio's information as to the origin and diet of their porcine. Thank you for your interest in GoBIO! Organic Gelatin. GoBIO! Organic Gelatin is pure hydrolyzed collagen protein extracted from certified organic pork hides. GoBIO! Organic Gelatin does not contain any additives, preservatives, coloring or MSG, which is widely used in bovine gelatin to enhance flavor, etc. GoBIO! Organic Gelatin is neutral in taste and naturally white in colour. Our organic gelatin is made for GoBIO! in Germany. Under EU organic regulations all animals have to be pastured and grass fed on certified organic pasture. We hope this helps. Kind Regards Anke GoBIO! Customer Service [...]

    A little too concentrated for me |
    Marin County, CAVerified Purchase

    I ordered this product, not sure what it was - but wanted to give my nails and hair a boost. If I use this product in the quantities suggested, I have a kind of reaction because the amino acids seemed to be pumped up a little too much for my system (glutamine). Its like eating too much sugar.

    This product has helped with joint pain and is also a wonderful addition for stronger nails and hair I've noticed that it does have an affect of suppressing my appetite which I appreciate as well. It has no taste or aroma, so I add it to hot tea and/or my green drink.

    Verified Purchase

    I've convinced my 50 year old father & my Husband & myself to take this product. My father has noticed the difference it has made so far, he's been taking this gelatin for a couple weeks now & he says he's less stiff. I have noticed a difference in my skin & hair. My stretch marks from my pregnancy have faded quit a bit I was surprised. Also my eye lashes seem to have grown, as well as my 'baby hair'. My baby hair has grown in length. My husband hasn't noticed any difference (he doesn't take it regularly) I am trying to get him to take it regularly but he's like a child. LOL As far as taste goes, it does have a bit of a taste so I like to mix it with something that will overpower it like coffee & juice. But it's not bad. It's definitely worth it if you ask me!!!

    Collagen Hydrolysate |
    Verified Purchase

    I've only been taking this for a few days, but I wanted to do an initial review based solely on taste and ease of use. I've been mixing one heaping tablespoon into my morning coffee and another into my nighttime herbal tea. It mixes instantly with hot liquids and I cannot taste it at all. I've been under a ton of stress this week and was sleeping very poorly before I started taking this. Perhaps coincidence, but two days into using this regularly and I am sleeping much better. I bought this hoping to help my skin (I'm 26 and have moderate acne still), hair and nails. Bonus if it helps prevent joint issues down the road. I also bought the gelatin in the red can from this company for making gummy snacks, and it works great!

    Portland, ORVerified Purchase

    i really believe in the idea of gelatin for health, and i try to eat 2Tb. a day in one form or another. I like this company and plan to continue. I found a book on natural gelatin treats that you can make without the sugar, so will try that as well. This one i am reviewing won't turn into hard gelatin, its more for dissolving into drinks. If you want jello you have to get the cow or pork gelatin by the same company.

    This stuff is amazing. It mixes great with some coffee creamer (mine is homemade!). I do not care for hot broth all the time, and this allows me to get some of the nutrients without having to worry about it. I recommend it to clients as well.
