This is the third gelatin product I've tried, and this is the worst of the three. It doesn't mix well and the taste is not good. I cannot tell if it benefited my body. There are better alternatives to this, including NOW's Joint Support Powder and Great Lakes Beef Gelatin.

Gave Me Diarrhea!
I can't comment on much more than that...I guess some people just cannot tolerate gelatin.

Not crazy about it
i didn't stick with it for more than 2 weeks because I wasn't crazy about the taste and mainly the thickness and texture that was hard to drink.

Use in smoothies. Finger nails and knee joints have improved.

I'm glad I found this beef gelatin as I do not use pork products. The price is reasonable also. I take it daily for help with joints.

I began using this product to strengthen my fingernails. My nails were so bendable... I read some reviews and it basically told me that I had to wait 3 months before I saw any effects. I waited 3 months and saw nothing, so I gave up. I tried again after 2 months, and within a week, I saw s significant change in my nail strength. And it has persisted! The product's working!!

Good way to get in some protein
This is an excellent product if you are needing to get in some extra protein without a lot of added fat. I use this in smoothies, soups, oatmeal, etc. Be careful not to let it sit in cold liquid (ie smoothie) for very long or it will clump.

I have been using this gelatin to prepare dishes that help me lose weight. I am happy to report that I have enjoyed eating this gelatin in both sweet and savory dishes, and I have lost three pounds in two weeks. It has also improved the quality of my sleep.
I recommend this product very highly.

Will buy again
Mixes great in warm or hot water. Turns into a great jelly and is easy to flavor. Shipping price was more than I'd like but I live in Canada. Will buy again.

I was delighted when I found beef gelatin in a one pound bag! It is so convenient. It adds protein to our meal. I dissolve 1 Tablespoon of gelatin in a little cold water and then add It to hot broth or tea. It's a great drink.

Like Grandma used to make it!
Love this stuff! Second time I've bought it and each time Swanson's delivers on time and perfectly. Excellent price for a great product. (Cheaper than anywhere else.) Helps me get to sleep and manage my cravings for sweeties! I make gummies with this powder and each time I end up with a flawless end product. Will definitely continue to buy from here, especially as I buy in bulk, thereby avoiding shipping charges and then, happily, I never run out! Great nutrition and a powerful protein kick that can be added to anything from tea to smoothies, to soups, to cakes! My nails and hair are very happy with this product too :-)

best out of three products
Swanson products are quite afforable, comparatively speaking, to others on the web. I am hooked on this site from now on after having shopped elsewhere. This product is the best that i have tried. It does not congeal in cold drinks when mixed & it tastes great. Thanks for this site & ease of ordering. you can't go wrong!

Good gelatin powder source. It would be perfect if it were organic and from grass fed beef! We use a lot of gelatin at our house.

It dissolves really well and sets up with fruit juice very quickly.

Must have for your kitchen!
I add Now Gelatin to any powdered protein drink or smoothie for an extra protein boost which also strengthens my nails and hair. In baking, if I have a very juicy pie, I sprinkle it over the fruit for thickening - no cooking or stirring necessary! I keep Now Gelatin as a staple in my kitchen.

Just what I was looking for
This gelatin is great! I use it all the time for making homemade gummies for my kids. It is easily mixed in without forming lumps. Good price too!

Love Now Foods Beef Gelatin
This gelatin powder is the best ever- great flavor and mixes easily with cold liquids!

I love this gelatin, and especially the fact that it is beef-derived. I can make great jello salads with fruit juice that my family loves, and I know there is nothing harmful in them.

Healthy Looking Hair
I starting adding a tsp of this to my coffee in the morning. After about 2 months, I've noticed that my hair does appear healthier and is growing longer. I am not saying dramatic results, but I have really thin, sparse, stringy hair, and have found that it looks a bit more "normal." I use Swanson's MSM, one scoop every morning as well, so I suspect both supplements were lacking in my diet.

I purchased this after reading about the benefits of taking gelatin. I take it at bedtime and it does seem to help me sleep better. I'm going to continue taking it because it is supposed to help with so many other things as well... hair, skin tone, nails etc. Can't wait to see!

I've been adding gelatin to my diet for a couple months now - It's a good source of protein, and I've been trying to use less processed whey protein and more gelatin. I haven't seen much change in my fingernail strength, but perhaps that takes more time (That's why I gave it a 4 for effectiveness and satisfaction). It's also supposed to help with joints, digestion, and skin health (hoping to smooth some wrinkles), so I'm going to continue adding it to my diet.
I mix it with smoothies, cottage cheese and fruit, and with my nuts & berries "cereal"...it will thicken the milk, so you need to add a lot more or it will turn into gel. I've also added it to soups and other savory recipes where I wanted to tighten up my sauces. I've read to mix it with your tea, but it tasted awful to me, so I wouldn't recommend that. One of the bags I ordered was punctured during shipping, and Swanson sent me a new one immediately.

Great product and Swanson has the best value around. My husband & I use it in our coffee in the morning and it has helped with our joints.Dissolves instantly and has no taste. Can be sprinkled on other foods to give a protein boost.too.

I hope this helps my bones and hair. I have noticed that I am sleeping better.
