Best Collagen Types 1 + 3
I've only been using this for a week, 2x a day, and my skin is already much smoother feeling and has more "elasticity" to it. I keep touching my face because it feels so different! As to the complaints about it not dissolving and bad taste? :o/
I make shakes each morning with a little shake blender and add the collagen, maca powder (also good for skin), Argnine powder, and stevia. Even with all those powders, I don't have any clumps, globs, or powders left over in the drink. For a meal, I add Pb2 or cocoa powder. YUM! Go Swanson!

Answer to last negative reviewer...
If you don't follow the directions it is difficult to use...But the directions are easy...Once mixed with water, add orange or other fruit juice as collagen needs vitamin C to be effective...You can't taste a thing and will be doing your body, skin, and hair a world of good...I do this every morning!! Love it!!

Really is the Best
Better taste than two other products I have tried and dissolves easier too. I would definitely recommend this over other collagen suppliers.

Great for skin health
This product really helps with hydration in the skin and overall skin health. The only thing that would make this product better is if it was an organic source.

I seldom review a product that I don't like from fear of negatively influencing others. But I find this product to be so totally unpleasant that I have to say it.
First it does not mix well with any liquid. You have to make a paste first, liquify a bit more and be as quick as possible to swallow this product because it taste so bad. I actually had to add stevia to try to ease the process. The other think is that it is sticky as if it had lots of sugar... don't know if that is just the general nature of all amino acids.
I also find that this amino acid product is labelled as to give the impression that you are buying something different that just another amino acid product. Which it actually is.
In terms of effectiveness, value and quality, I gave it the minimum. If I cannot take it in because it is too bad, it is ineffective and valueless to me.
This is my personal experience with it. Hope others are having better results. As for me, I am very disappointed in this product and will return it.

Not effective for me
I have drunk it over one month, don't feel too much difference on my skin.

Tastes Terrible and Doesn't Mix
1. Terrible tasting. They say it has a neutral taste but that's definitely not true.
2. Doesn't mix into the drink very well. There will be gunk at the bottom of your drink that didn't dissolve.
Other than that I'm sure it is high quality. I ended up going with the pill form (same brand) and it works great!

I really like this product
I have been taking this for the past 4 months and I have seen a huge improvement on my dry skin and wrinkles. I am 47 years old and I lost 45 pounds 7 months ago. After losing all that weight at my age I was very sad to see how my skin looked so dried and wrinkled. My sister in law told me to take collagen that it would help. Now 4 months later my skin has improved a lot. Its not so dry and the wrinkles are not as noticeable.

Works Like Collegen
I am 59 years old and i have been taking this brand of collegen for 4 months because its powder. I like the fact it dissolves in water easier than another brand of collegen. I have been taken collegen 1&3 for 3 years in tablet form so the collegen in well establisted in my system and this powder is working just fine. I actually look early 30'd. No fine or definite line on my face, the veins are not prominent on the back of my hands, finger skin very elastic and not wrinkled much, and I am also very strong in my bone when it comes to lifting heavy things. I feel so young. This product is so good for tendons, ligaments, and bones. Yes take is with the vitiman C.

Think that Neo Cell is better
This didn't dissolve as well as Neo Cell Collagen..who knows the affects..as this type of supplement takes quite a while to see a difference in skin and bones, hair etc. I would personally recommend "Neo Cell Collagen Type 1 and 2" as it does dissolve better and it is in a much smaller container.
