I use Great lakes gelatin (unflavored) and really like it. There are a few others on this site that do as well.

While home-made long-cooked bone marrow broth is amazing for health, as others said here, the point of the matter is that bone broth only has one type of collagen/gelatin in it. There are many types of collagen, but type 1, 2, and 3 are the most important ones. To get all types, you'd have to supplement, IF you have too many wrinkles or you are of some age, or you have a bad cartilage somewhere, or similar condition. I personally bought two different supplements for my knee (I banged it up good last year, slipped in my mom's bathroom in Greece):

  • Neocell Laboratories Super Collagen Plus C (types 1 and 3)

  • Doctors Best Best Hyaluronic Acid with Chondroitin Sulfate (type 2)

I take these 2-3 times a week each, usually when I don't have bone broth (bone broth is still my main defense). They should not be taken on the same day btw, or 5 hours apart at least).

it is called homemade bone broth and no pill is better than this!

I thought that since you digest the proteins you eat, supplementing with collagen is useless, since you will break it down anyways in the stomach.

Better to provide the body with all the raw materials by eating bone broth, adequate protein and vitamin C.

But jello is tasty, regardless.

Yes! I eat bone broth soups several times a week, supplement with hyaluronic acid, and make these using strawberries (more than the recipe calls for) and Great Lakes gelatin. Almost as fun as gummy bears!

Yea products from collagen-supplements.com. They have a really good cream, collagen pills and even an amazing liquid Collagen product. You should check them out.

This is something that was thought for a long time, but there was a recent study done with fish collagen, and the result was that it did actually reach the skin, and therefore reduced wrinkles, added moisture etc.

I use a marine collagen supplement, and for me there has been some good results with skin elasticity mainly.

I've been taking collagen supplements for a while and I really have noticed a difference with my skin which looks a bit less wrinkly and also a bit fresher.

Nope. I get enough of the non-essential amino acids found in collagen that supplementing it seems just a bit silly.

I take a collagen powder supplement called Milcolla.
