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!

High quality product. Can be used in just about anything but is great for anyone on a specialized diet needing additional source of quality protein. Dissolves well in all liquids but best in warm liquids (coffee, tea, soup). I've tried it in several different liquids including bottled water and it does not have much flavor. I've recently shared it with a friend who is battling cancer and could not eat a number of different foods but has re-established some sort of appetite after using this for just over 2 weeks so now I ordered them their own supply. Getting ready to order myself some more.

FYI: to get the last bit out, just use a can opener to remove the top. Be very careful, as this creates a very sharp edge. I've been using this product for over a year for joint aches, and I won't do without it.

I rarely write rave reviews, but here we go. I had trigger thumb, getting worse and worse, for about eight months. Three days after I started taking this, at only 1 tsp a day in my a.m. smoothie, the trigger thumb and all associated pain were gone. Need I say more?

I have osteo arthritis and before I started taking this, I had pain and stiffness in my back and right knee. That has gone, and it's great for skin too

I've noticed a distinct improvement in my skin since putting this in my tea twice a day. This is a beautifully prepared product, very pure. I can't taste the Collagen Hydrolysate in my tea, unlike the Gelatin, which has a stronger flavor.

So, a lot of people say they add this to coffee and tea... The problem is, if you add as much as you need, your coffee and tea definitely taste like beef. I've found it's better to add to food. You expect a meaty taste in food. I asked the company and it's definitely OK to cook with it...though to get your full doses, you might as well just slip the powder between your sandwich slices or mix into your green beans, or salad dressing...

Dissolves easily in room temperature liquids. Minimal taste. Skin looks better. Joints feel more lubricated. Only side effect is foul gas which does not bother me but does people around me.
