Hydrolyzed collagen can help regulate the body's metabolism by providing protein of low molecular weight that is quickly absorbed in the digestive tract.
The rapid absorption and distinctive amino acid groups in this formula will impact a large number of metabolic pathways.
The body's natural ability to repair supporting connective tissue (bone, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, skin, hair, and nails) diminishes in one's mid-twenties. Collagen contains amino acids such as glycine, lysine, and proline, which are important amino acids and can be used by the body to build connective tissue structures to support the functions of the cells.
Hydrolyzed collagen is the same collagen found naturally in bones, skin, and cartilage. It is a bioactive product containing 90% protein and is easily assimilated by the body.
Hydrolyzed collagen is the unique combination of amino acids in concentrated levels. This low molecular weight protein is easily digested which supports the body's natural healing.
Collagen Hydrolysate will not congeal because it has been hydrolyzed for quick assimilation into the body. Collagen is important to nitrogen balance, and may prevent age related cartilage damage and collagen loss.
Recommended Dosage: Take two rounded tablespoons (12 gm) twice a day.
Recommended Uses: This product has a low molecular weight so it will dissolve in cold, warm, or hot liquids. Collagen Hydrolysate as a pure protein taken before meals may help curb appetite. Enjoy when added to your favorite drink such as coffee, smoothies, non-carbonated beverages or juice.

iHerb Customer Reviews
Ive tried lots of products on this site. People rave about this and that. Ive found about 40% of things tried from here do what people say they do. On this product they are 100% right. Im 53YO and noticing many wrinkles. Its upsetting despite Aussie blokes are not supposed to be upset by this. Ive been using 1 level tablespoon just before sleep. My lines are visibly going away after 1 month. I was surprised when i really noticed this 3 weeks after starting. This product is on my permanent supps list. PLUS it helps deeper sleep. Dreams are more vivid. Great list on amino acids. Plus iherbs great shipping rates.
I started using this product two weeks ago. One T. in the morning in my coffee, one T. before bed with warm water. I find that it dissolves better in warm liquids although with enough stirring it does dissolve in cold liquids. It has a very slight meaty taste when dissolving in plain water, but it is so subtle that I don't have an aversion to it. Just in the past 14 days I've noticed my nails growing out stronger and faster than usual, and my right knee which has been achy for the past few years has started to loosen up and has better range of motion. The day after a lower-body weight workout and short jog my knee was not hurting as bad as it usually does. I originally bought this to see how it improved my joints. So far, my results have been small but positive, and I will continue to use this for the next 2-3 months to see how I am feeling then. It is also a good boost of protein, 6 grams per tablespoon. I recommend giving this a try and seeing how it works for you.

Not noticing any results

It is easy to use and consume but I have been using this at the recommended dose of at least 2 heaped tablespoons a day for 3 months. I am yet unable to determine if there is improvement in my joint pain. I do have significant damage so I will continue using for a longer trial. I am not getting any younger looking, less wrinkles, stronger nails/hair, or weight loss either. I am 37 and am only getting older looking at the alarming rate over 35s enjoy. Such fun!
This product has changed the outlook of my life.

After the birth of my son I developed post pregnancy osteoarthritis in my knees. My doctor was unsure of the cause but said that he has seen this happen once before and prescribed some exercises/physio and NSAIDs. The arthritis progressed rapidly. I went from never having problems in my knees to finding walking and carrying any extra weight painful. I was unable to get down on the floor with my young son and found it almost impossible to carry him up the stairs to bed anymore. It was very overwhelming for me and I was thinking my mobility and quality of life would be compromised long-term. Then I discovered reports online about the benefits of collagen for arthritis. I thought it couldn't hurt to try this. After 4 weeks of taking the collagen I noticed marked improvements and and barely had any noticeable pain. Now, several months after regularly taking collagen I usually don't notice my arthritis at all. Occasionally on a cold rainy day or when doing stairs after being on my feet for a 12 hour shift I notice a twinge in my knees but otherwise I am completely back to normal. I can exercise, carry my son up stairs and go for walks without any pain. I take 3 tablespoons a day, one in the morning and two in the evening. I found I had to start at one teaspoon twice a day due to stomach upset and mood swings on a higher dose initially but now I don't have any negative effects from the full dosage. This product has changed my life dramatically for the better.
