I use collagen and sometimes gelatin as a potential aid for my back(joint) pain on a regular basis, but am not quite militant about it.
With daily use there will be a noticeable change in skin texture within a month or so, an indication that something is happening.
Anecdotally, it appears to correlate with some relief.

We use a brand called Great Lakes Gelatin (pasture raised and grass fed). DH puts it in our coffee every morning. Dissolves nicely. We figure it couldn’t hurt and may help!

I just started, but I use half of the recommended daily dosage. I haven't noticed anything yet.

I take - but it is part of my beauty drink, for my complexion. It works (for me) if taken regularly.

Ok. So Costco finally had a sale on Orgain’s Collagen Peptides .. Costco online says $46 but we bought it store for $29. We bought 6 cans 2.2 lbs. Base on my research Collagen Type 1 and 3 are the best .
Bovine grass fed. The other types are from shellfish and chicken which some articles said are inferior source. Anyway, it mixes easily with my coffee and it makes me feel full with 18 grams of protein. Reviews at Amazon showed some people said their hair grew back and they had pictured, some said it cured their skin eczema after 4 days, and some said it improve their joints. We’ll see..

Can you elaborate more on this? Dosage etc. I am dealing with a gut issue and have used several rounds of antibiotics and even herbal antibiotics over the past year and a half with my gastroenterologist and then a functional medicine doctor. I have been reading about a new product that is for intestinal repair that is made from bovine and sounds like what you are taking might be similar.

I tried it to help with my weak, brittle nails, but it hasn't helped do far. Gelatin didn't work either.

After 3 weeks of use, DW and I see results - improvement on facial skin .. more supple, more radiant, and less wrinkles around the eyes. Probably will take time to see effect on joints.
