So I wanted to wait a while to write a review, this way I could speak about this products benefits.
I’ve been using this product for 3 months now – I started with the smaller sized container to get a good test run first. I do a lot of research on the products I put into my body, and this company checked out okay with what I had originially read. So quality, check.
My first opinion with this product was the taste – when added to tea, if taken as suggested (2 scoops) you can definitely tell there is a taste. It is a mild taste, but a taste nonetheless. But it dissolved right into the hot liquid without any problems, did not change the color of the tea at all.So I decided to change my doseage – I put 1 scoop into coffee (no taste/no color change as I drink my coffee black) and then 1 scoop at night when I drink my post-workout (from another company). No further taste issues.
What changes have I experienced:My hair is definitely growing quicker than before, but not incredibly speedy – so don’t set yourself up for that expectation. My hair and nails are definitely stronger (which I needed after having a gel manicure twice a month for the last two years)My skin – definite improvement. I still get blemishes, that’s just how my chemistry goes, but I’ve definitely noticed a glow, not over-oily etc.Also, I just overall feel better.
So, if you’re like me and read every review before purchasing a product, I hope this review serves you well. If you’re curious, but don’t want to commit to the larger container, get the smaller size and give it a test-run. I saw benefits after one month, combined with a moderately healthy diet (and drink drink drink your water!!), and the only thing I changed about my routine is adding a scoop of this powder to my coffee/shake. If you do not choose this product, buyer beware – check ALL the labels before purchasing.

I ordered this earlier this year and it contained ascorbic acid and hyaluronic acid as advertised on the product photos. That’s what I was looking for. It was really good and I could see the difference within about a week of taking it. My hip pain reduced, I didn’t have headaches and I wasn’t feeling so tired.I have ordered another two boxes. However I didn’t feel the same after taking it. When I looked at the description they are both different and none of them contain hyaluronic acid or ascorbic acid..!Just be aware and check your box especially when you want the ascorbic acid and hyaluronic acid.

The photos are very misleading for this product and should be changed immediately! The product is NOT as it appears in the photos. The photos I have posted together with this review includes the actual product specs. It is 10g of bovine collagen, not 20g, and there is no vitamin C or hyaluronic acid in the ingredients. Very disappointed. Do not buy this product. Buy the other one on Amazon that has 10g, because that product’s marketing is honest (and a cheaper price for the same thing!).

I do have a problem with the received product though. One main reason I purchased this particular brand was that it was also supposed to contain VITAMIN C and HYALURONIC ACID -(helps absorption) according to advertised picture. The product I received doesn’t contain any of it.

I can’t review how this works as I’ve just received it and used it only once. It dissolved very well in my hot cup of tea.I do have a problem with the received product though. One main reason i purchased this particular brand was that it was also supposed to contain VITAMIN C and HYALURONIC ACID -(helps absorption) according to advertised picture. The product I received doesn’t contain any of it. It might be older version of the product but they shouldn’t advertise it with these extra ingredients if they don’t deliver it.

I have been very happy with this product – the first difference I felt after a few weeks was that it helped me sleep. It contains glycine and if you look online there is research that shows that helps with sleep. I sleep for longer periods and if I wake up at night I can fall back to sleep quickly which has made a big difference in my general well being. Then after about six weeks my knees started to feel better which I think was the collagen, and now after a few months my hair is more shiny – all good things!
It does have a taste – it isn’t strong but I tried it with plain water and it needs some flavor to cover the taste. I don’t want to add it to my coffee, and like drinking it cold. I found that flavored carbonated water like LaCroix is just enough to cover the taste, but it does not dissolve quickly in cold liquid. I was mixing it and leaving it sit on the counter until the lumps were gone, which could take as long as an hour. Some of the photos I have seen in the comments show lumps and I think they didn’t let it sit long enough to dissolve.
I finally came up with a method to mix it quickly and I wanted to share it. What works for me is: (1) Pour a small amount of the cold flavored water into a glass – maybe 2 oz. (2) Put that in the microwave and heat it until it is hot – about 20 – 30 seconds. (3) Sprinkle two scoops of the Vital Proteins into the small amount of hot liquid and stir it until it dissolves. It will dissolve quickly without lumps when it is hot. (4) Pour in the rest of the cold flavored water in the glass with the already dissolved collagen solution and mix that. If I want it colder I put in an ice cube. This would work for any cold liquid, you could add juice as well. Basically, the idea is to dissolve the Vital Proteins in a small amount of hot liquid first and then add the cold liquid to that solution. Hope this is helpful!

I question the quality of this collagen, as when I order it direct from the company (Vital Proteins), the powder is finely ground, white, and has absolutely zero odor, blending into hot or cold liquids seamlessly. The two times I’ve ordered from Amazon, it’s been thick granules, yellow, and reeked of spoiled milk, and hasn’t blended into cold nor hot drinks without clumping up. I’m very disappointed, and will not be ordering any more from Amazon until they fix their supply issue, or find out if it’s even the real stuff to begin with.

I struggled all my life with taking large pills, powders and elixirs, basically anything that has a medicinal or bitter taste. I kept hearing about this powdered collagen and decided to do my research ( it took me 3 months), to become an informed participant. I do not consume any medicine, synthetic or herbal supplements. I first looked at large bodies of evidenced based research to support why I should consider consuming this product. I found tons and decided to give it a try. First, I bought the single serve and shook it up in a 16oz water bottle, then prayed I would not throw up. Barely and I mean barely any taste whatsoever. Moved on to purchasing a single serve blender—poured 200 ml of organic milk, a splash of carnation milk, 1tspn organic agave, 1tspn organic cocoa powder, 1 scoop collagen powder and 1 scoop maca powder..AGAIN you can’t even taste the powder and no after taste. Results…joint pain gone! Hair growth 1 inch in 1 month, nails are stronger (I like short natural nails), skin–bye bye fine lines and fine wrinkles (the ones you see in the 5x magnifying mirror). For the sake of clarity, my goal was to address some joint pain. The ancillary advantages/outcomes was not what I was seeking–but I am not complaining. I make the shake everyday and drink it after my Pilates and elliptical workout in the am. Oh yes, for us women of a certain age…pre, during or post menopausal, it reduced the flame on and in the heat of the night episodes by 90% –get your sleep back. I am a former ballet dancer and while I am in good health and maintain an uncompromising size 6, I know I was taking my health for granted. Thinking that I could still hitch my wagon to the good genes shooting star. Well all good things come to an end and I really should have been taking supplements all along. Joint pain is reduced by 70% and I’m very pleased. I am not a physician and just sharing my personal results/observations (unintended and intended). I’m still pretty shocked at the results, as I had no expectations of a positive or negative outcome whatsover. Please do your research!
