This is very effective. However, I prefer the powder from the same company, the powder can be mixed in coffee so you avoid tasting it. You can not avoid to taste the pills - they taste absolutely horrible to me and this is why I'm rating this 1 star. Instead of this, I recommend the Neocell Super Collagen POWDER which can be mixed into coffee or juice, to mask the taste. The powder is an excellent product. 10 grams of collagen every day taken for 6 months have been clinically proven to improve the joints. The MRI scans clearly show this. Also, there should be an effect on the skin. I prefer this version which also contains a bit of Vitamin C.

Great antioxidant. It upregulates the Nrf2 metabolic pathway which means the body will produce more of its own natural antioxidants. The bottle sat in my cabinet for months but when I finally got around to talking it I discovered that it's one of the best supplements I have ever taken.

Gives me a lot of energy when I take it in large doses. The kind of sustained lasting energy. But to accomplish this I have to take about 5 grams at once (the entire tub has 7.5 grams). Thorne Research should offer larger sizes of this.

I have tried many forms of magnesium and this is the only form which gives me high energy. I use this during the day and magnesium threonate (which is highly sedating) at night. Magnesium orotate is more expensive than other forms - but the benefits make the cost worth it!

Glutathione from Jarrow had a harsh effect on me, so I tried this time released version. The effects are very good, I sleep like a log, feel good and my skin has whitened.

It contains pure trans-resveratrol (no other stuff) in time-released form. The dosage is right (you should NOT take more than 500 mb per day, as this is already a large dose) and the fact that it's time released makes it effective throughout the day: I feel energetic all day long. This is a good form of Resveratrol to switch to if the other forms no longer have a noticeable effect.
Unfortunately, it may make the thyroid go slower.
Taking this every day helped the skin on my face a lot. 10 grams of collagen every day taken for 6 months have been clinically proven to improve the joints. The MRI scans clearly show this. Also, there should be an effect on the skin. This is much better than the pill version from Neocell, because you can mask the taste by mixing it with a liquid.

There are 3 forms of Omega 3: triglycerides, ethyl ester and phospholipids. This form (phospholipids) is the best of the 3 forms. It offers more brain, liver and heart benefits. It is especially helpful for fatty liver and attention issues (ADD / ADHD).
I STOPPED TAKING IT BECAUSE IT GIVES ME HAND TREMORS. This is from my older review: If I feel unmotivated and I take 4 caps, I'm a lot more motivated, and think better. I'm able to concentrate better. It increases dopamine in the brain. Dopamine means "I WANT". Whatever I want in that moment, I want even more after taking Dopa Mucuna. This means I may overeat, for example.. or do a lot of exercise being highly motivated.
