Super Collagen Type I + III
I was leery of trying this product due to some of the reviews which claimed it was hard to mix/dissolve and did not taste good. I find it to mix very easily when added to a small amount very warm or hot water, then when dissolved I add more fluids and it is not the least bit gritty or unpleasant. It has a neutral taste, similar to unflavored gelatin, and does not taste bad at all! I also add 5 drops of silica gel (Biosil, purchased at Swanson, of course!) to boost the effects of the collagen for my skin, joints, and bones. I take a 500 mg Vit. C also with this drink, every morning on empty stomach. I look forward to this healthy cocktail every AM!

It is working!
Take this first thing every morning on empty stomach. Shake it up in small closed bottle with little water then add some small amount grape juice. A really nice way to start the day knowing it is working so well. Also use Type #1 fish collagen and egg shell membrane to complete the working perfectly package! Thank you Swanson for products I can depend upon.

Just don't rush it
As most things we take, it takes a couple of months to notice the difference when taking this collagen product, so don't expect an overnight miracle. It takes a minute or two for it to dissolve in water, so if that's a big problem you might want to try the capsules. I prefer powder because I think the liquid gets where it's suppose to be quicker. You will see results, they just won't be immediate ones.

Haven't seen any improvement
Too early to say if it works or not

I have used this collagen powder for over 10 years. I love it. My skin couldn't look better and virtually wrinkle free.

Super Collagen is a basic recommended nutrition element. That's why I consume it . It's easy to mix with other food and so convenient.

Glad to see it at Swanson again!
I bought this product long time ago from this site and liked it very much. Swanson stopped carrying it for a while and I stopped taking it. I found it in GNC two month ago but the price is much higher. I then search on Swanson and found it again! So glad Swanson has it again!

Mixes well with juice. (I used orange/mango) Almost made it like a creamsicle!
Too soon to tell long term results.

I definitely see a difference in my overall skin while taking this product. Smoother, softer, brighter! The only reason I didn't give it 5's all around is because it's very hard to mix with a liquid and clumps. But I usually put it in a morning smoothy and it works great. Because it works so good I'll put up with the occasional mixing issue if I don't have my morning smoothy.

It's a little hard to mix up so I use a small funnel and pour it in a bottle of water, I then add a little metamucil, but juice would work. Replace the water bottle cap and shake. Then I take the rest of my vitamins with it! You can't taste it and I have noticed better skin, hair and nails plus the added benefit of joint health, I love it!

NeoCell Super Collagen Type I & III Item # NEC003
Me and my husband have been using this about a year. I have noticed my nails getting stronger and glossier.
I hope it is helping to build collagen in other parts of my body.

Good product. I have been using it for a while and I see the difference in my skin, nails and hair. The product is a little hard to dissolve.

Great quality and effective. Don't expect results instantly - must take consistently.

NeoCell Super Collagen Type I & III
This product is hard to take. I tried following the lable directions but I still ended up with a glob of the product that I just gulped down. If I'd seen some improvement I would have continued but I'm just not sure it has been beneficial. I also took liquid hyaluronic acid (LFT041) and MSM(SW851), sold by Swansons, along with this hoping to achieve a synergistic effect. Perhaps I'll give it another try because I really like the ingredients even tho they don't mix well.
A major plus is the ingredients are of bovine source.

''Great for your Muscles
I have been using NeoCell
Super Collagen Type I & III for about three years
and it has helped my muscles a great deal.

Good product value, but there are better.
It doesn't mix well/if at all, but I find that to be the case with all the bovine collagen powders I have tried.
I find the container and scoop for this product to be messier than Doctor's Best brand. Other than that, I find the quality of both products to be about equal.
My mother and I have been taking collagen for a few months and could see results after about a month of use. I will definitely keep taking collagen and will continue to try different collagen products. This product is very good for the price (especially when compared to popular japanese fish collagen products).
I would have no problem ordering this product again, but would like to experiment with others.

I have been using this product for a few months now. I mix it at night and by morning it is dissolved nicely. I also add orange juice and I squeeze some lemon juice with it. I have seen a big improvement in my skin and most especially length and body to my hair. People are giving me compliments especially about my hair. I will always use, and recommend this product to others.

I believe this is a good product but I have noticed in order to make it as good as the pills one must add vitamin C with bioflavs. So in saying that I figure its cheaper to just but the pills for a couple extra bucks. When I do take this one I take with water and there is no bad taste like people are saying so " cut it out folk "! This power can be taking alone with water easy or what I do is mix it with swanson vitamin C powder and go about my day. One thing I did notice with the powder that is a pro over the pill is you don't experience gas, lol. I believe I can give a reliable review because I use both products.
As far as hair growth I can not speak on that bec I have only taken for a little over two weeks and have not experience any. Maybe after longer usage I will see something. I will keep you guys posted because I plan to use Neocell for at least a year.
Softer smoother skin
Stronger longer nails
No bad taste can be taken with water
Must combine w/ vitamin C w/ bioflavs to get full rewards I noticed

My esthetician raves about my skin.
Stack this with BioCell II and you got a winner. My esthetician raves about my skin. Add high does of vitamin c with bioflavionionds and it is even better.

didn't work for me
I was hoping this would help me with my extremely dry skin, but it seems to have made no difference at all. I haven't noticed any effect whatsoever.

EXELLENTE PRODUCT. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BY MY MOTHER.
October 9, 2012
if you team this with cofactors like vitamin c, msm, hyaluronic acid, or silica, you should reap good benefits

I don't like the taste when it's mixed with water so I stir it with juices. Though it's without Vit C, you can take Neocell's collagen capsule. I think Neocell has the best quality among all intake collagen. Even if you can't stand the taste of this powder you can always mix it with honey and leave it on your face for 15 minutes. You'll notice how it rejuvenates your skin. Love this!

no vitamin C
Does not contain vitamin C so had to take vitamin c separately so it can be absorbed!!!

Very good product
I have been taking this product for several months along with MSM supplements. I used to avoid wearing sleeveless blouses because of my aged skin. With these supplements my skin looks much better, and I'm now wearing sleeveless clothing again.
