Even after mixed with orange juice as some reviewers recommended it cant mask the stench. i should've read the low rated reviews more carefully before buying. from the smell i wonder if this is animal derived collagen.

I bought this primarily for my hair because of my hair loss. I wouldn't mind the other benefits it is said to provide. So far, I've taken 3-4 bottles of it and don't see any improvements anywhere.

It smells very different from my usual collagen I took from Japan. The highest the grade of the collagen, the faintness the smell. Reckon this is a lower grade collagen as the smell is really too strong and overpowering hence the cheaper price. Its difficult to drink despite mixing with juices, yoghurt etc. I will not repurchase. Took for 3weeks and don't see any different. All i know is it smells horrible and such a pain to drink it. Will not recommend unless you like very strong and intense stale fishy smell.
Yucky, Clumpy, Mostly Pointless

This stuff was very clumpy and hard to dissolve in addition to having such a bad taste I ended up throwing half of it away after spending days of struggling to take it. I bought this stuff a long time ago. I know better now - the irony is I wasted my money since I was borderline protein deficient so buying a protein powder supp. would have been just as good. I could have also bought more micronutrients that help build collagen and/or make you look better (i.e. 5,000mcg biotin, bio-available silicon... but not vitamin C unless eating lots of carbs since our body's uric acid does the same thing)... and of course to protect your collagen not eating evolutionary excessive amounts of carbs/PUFAs that cause A.G.E.s that damage collagen, nor eating too many neolithic foods & fixing an omega-6:3 imbalance with some intermitten fasting thrown in to get rid of the junk proteins in your cells (in other words, following a paleolithic diet) also protects your collagen.
I've been using this product for more than a month and am not sure I see much difference in my overall connective tissue strength and support
