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!

This, combined with liquid fish oil, has functionally cured my plantar fascitis .... after only two days of use! You have to keep it up though as any form of arthritis is a chronic condition.

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.

I bought this product to help with a skin related problem. Whilst it didn't help to resolve the skin problem, what it did on an emotional level was nothing short of transformational. Within three days, my moods were much lighter. I haven't experienced the roller-coaster mood swings since, or the shadowing depressive feelings. It is the first time for years that I have felt 'normal'. I am so grateful for this product. I have it in warm/hot water every morning before breakfast and every evening before bed...a new and welcome part of my routine. And my family are so grateful for their 'new and improved' wife and mother!

Got this product for my parents and, after ten days of usage, dad's knee is better and mom looks younger with a radiant look in her face. They seem happier hoping to have more benefits with time, especially with arthritis, so after a few days of ordering it , I went and ordered another box. Another thing worth mentioning is the great deal with postage, very affordable, and quick delivery. Beautiful. Note if you are buying from Croatia, make sure to check total purchase amount threshold in regards to taxes and customs import fees.
