Let's get back to basics. Our bodies are built on proteins. They're essential to every bone, every tissue, and every structure in the human body. Proteins are built on amino acids, which together form small protein components called peptides. Peptides are important in cellular function regulation, while individual amino acids exert specialized actions on specific cells and tissues.

Hydrolyzed collagen, or Collagen Hydrolysate, is an excellent source of high-quality, highly bioavailable protein with a specific amino acid profile that literally feeds soft tissues like cartilage, skin and more. In fact, up to 30 percent of our body weight is collagen!

New High Plains Collagen Hydrolysate from Swanson Premium is produced right here on the Great Plains by Gelita, worldwide gelatin specialists, with material carefully sourced from one of Europe's premier agricultural regions. It provides high amounts of key amino acids like glycine, proline and lysine, which are essential to maintaining healthy connective tissue.* The ultra-pure powder contains absolutely no fillers, flavors, colors or additives of any kind, offering a clean solution for those seeking the ultimate in systemic protein supplementation.

Customer Ratings & Reviews

High Plains Collagen Hydrolysate is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Nails I have had problems with a nail that splits at the nail base. I've tried biotin, and it didn't help. The only thing that's stopped the splitting is Hydrolyzed Collagen. I slip it in my morning smoothie and don't even notice it's there. I've purchased other places, but Swanson's is the best value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Product I began taking this Collagen about two months ago. I've noticed real improvements in my skin, hair and digestive tract. I put a scoop in my morning coffee and another in my evening decaf.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Collagen Hands Down We love Swanson's collagen and didn't realize how much until we tried another brand recently. We couldn't wait for it to be gone before we went back to our Swanson brand. Swanson's truly does dissolve easily unlike the other brand we tried and is high quality. The other brand was gummy and more sticky too. Not to mention for quality and price there is no comparison. They beat competitors pricing. We will stick with the Swanson brand collagen from here on in and no more experimenting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good product good price I drink this in my morning coffee or sometimes in a smoothie or sprinkle over cold cereal for a protein boost. I am not sure if I have noticed a difference in my hair, nails, or joints as collagen is often touted to do (hence the middle ground rating on effectiveness) but that is more of an over all judgment on collagen in general. I personally use it a protein supplement. this powder dissolves easily (I haven't had problems with clumps) and I do not notice any taste. I plan to continue to purchase this collagen as it works well and is one of the best prices I have found.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Collagen I had read reviews of some collagen powders having a funny smell or taste and not dissolving well in liquids. This collagen is great, no smell, taste, and dissolves in all my drinks, hot or cold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased I am on my second container of High Plains Collagen and I'm very pleased with results I have seen. My nails are stronger and my hair seems healthier. It mixes very well in hot coffee or any cold drink and is tasteless and colorless. I also add it to smoothies and soups. Overall, I am happy with this product and would highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality at a good price I was recommended this product, but different brand name, with a much higher price. I have always been satisfied with the Swanson brand for other items I purchase, so I bought the Swanson brand. I am completely satisfied that it is as good as the higher priced ones. Thanks Swanson, you have done it again!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Waiting to see Resutls. Doesn't Disslove Well. I have been taking this product for 2 weeks, morning and night. Wanted to give this product a try based on the reviews. Great price for amount received. However, the results are slow. Also, this product doesn't dissolve well. There are strings/beads that linger after stirring a few times and waiting about 10-15mins. Upleanseant experience swallowing undissoled beads/strings of collagen. Have concerns about how my body is processing/using or not using the undissolved strings/beads of collagen. There is another product that I typically use and after about a week of use I am pleased with the results. The product I usually use is noticeably more effective than Swanson Premium High Plains Collagen Hydrolysate and it dissolves well. Still waiting for visible results from Swanson's Premium High Plains Collagen Hydrolysate. A bit disappointed. Will not buy this product again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff! Great stuff! As good as the higher-priced Products… Thank you Swanson – PLEASE keep your prices so we can afford them … your prices are more fair than others!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than any others I used a different brand of collagen for years because it has always worked well for me. But I decided to give Swanson's brand a try because I've had good luck with their products. I must say this collagen is even better than I expected. It's very effective and a much better value. Collagen is essential to all body joint tissue, also skin and other tissue function As we get older, our natural supply of collagen diminishes and this product is a great way to replenish. I'm very happy with this product and I'll continue to use it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tasteless & Dissolves easily I read another reviewer that said this product did not mix well. I found it to dissolve extremely well. Maybe they changed the formula? I ordered this for my elderly mother. Before giving it to her I mixed a scoop in a glass of water and tried it. It dissolved very well and I couldn't taste it in just plain water. I have no idea how well this product works but it certainly is easy to mix and doesn't alter the taste if i didn't notice it in plain water. The scoop is not too large. If I had to guess it's about a tablespoon.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I find this product does not mix well. Most dissolves but stringing treads remain after several stirrings. It also has a slight taste that isn't terrible, and could probably be hid in juice; however, I was able to taste it when added to my coffee. I have used another brand that has no taste, and mixed easily and completely, so I will be returning to that product even though it is slightly more in cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective and low carbs. Since I've been using collagen type 1 and 3 blend, I've noticed an improvement in my hair, skin, and nails as well as improved joint mobility. Other people have even told me that I don't look my age. Since I limit my carbs, I like that this product is compatible with my eating habits. The taste is not strong and I like to flavor it with sugar free drink mixes. I also give this to my elderly Lab to improve her mobility.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product This is convenient to take, as I add it to my morning smoothie. I have only been using it a month, so a little too soon to tell if I am benefiting from it yet. However, Swanson has great products at good prices, so I have high expectations that it will fit my needs.
Date published: 2016-10-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dissolves Easily in Cold Water This product is very water soluble and tasteless so it's easy to take. Give it a few minutes and it will dissolve in cold water. Just stir it up a bit and you can drink your water and barely even know it's there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! This product dissolves quickly and has little to no flavor when added to tea or smoothies. There are so many health benefits! My dry skin has improved since I began taking it regularly. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Drink Mix - Ins I used the collagen in my shake, smoothie and other drink mix ins. It doesn't alter the taste or make it feel "chalky". I also put some into my kid's mac n cheese and they don't notice it. Great to help get the benefits of collagen into your diet more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy way to add collagen to diet I add a scoop of this to my morning blended tea along with MCT oil and hemp seed. This is an easy way to add some collagen to your diet without having to make bone broth all of the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from COLLAGEN AS GOOD AS IT GETS Swanson’s website recently had a blurb about this new product of theirs: HIGH PLAINS COLLAGEN HYDROLYSATE. I'm big on using Collagen, alway have been, so I read their promo material. I'm even bigger on a good, easy to use powder form of most any nutritional supplement I like to use, instead of needing to take more and more pills. I decided to give this Collagen Powder a try. I put a big heaping tsp of it into one of my daily health / nutrient 'cocktails.' It stirs in easily, has no noticeable odor or taste, and doesn't negatively affect the consistency or drinkability of my 'cocktail.’ I’m all for that. Swanson extolled the virtues of this new Collagen Powder product of theirs for skin, joints, etc. . . . . You know, all the usual good Collagen stuff you read about everywhere. Hey, who doesn't want all that good stuff? I'm all for it. When you get right down to it, most of the commonly published informative and educational-type material regarding Collagen mentions that it is sort of an 'intercellular cement' that literally holds us together, and keeps us from aging / deteriorating / and falling apart. (This is in no way a ‘medical claim’ of any sort; just a plain-talk discussion of collagen’s common role. Look it up for yourself online; you’ll see.) Who doesn't want that? I'm all for it. I like this excellent, easy to use, noticeably effective HIGH PLAINS COLLAGEN HYDROLYSATE from Swanson Vitamins. It has found a home in my box of super powders for my 'cocktails.' I am very comfortable recommending that you get a big jug of this valuable nutrient and be sure to add a spoonful to your daily regimen. Works for me.
