Well it's about re-balancing your amino acid intake. Lean meats skew it to too far little glycine

Senneth, it may technically up your protein count, but I believe it's an incomplete protein.

That's what I read online, that in order to be absorbed properly and not take too much of these in one go, to space them out.

Why do you have to space these supplements apart so much?

Any pill containing high doses of collagen will actually be better than bone broth.

Agreed. I do bone broth and supplements, actually. (Especially as I'm trying to heal a 3rd degree ankle sprain right now.) I don't take many supplements, but I feel LOADS better supplementing this stuff. @Eugenia, thanks for those rec's. I need to look into a chondroitin supp.

I take this too, along with eating bone broth daily. I add it to my coffee. (Mix with a little tepid water first. Doesn't dissolve in hot liquid well.)

David, What about stewing bones annoys your fiancé? We love the delicious aroma that fills the house...

Yeh, I drink Dr Oekter gelatin (sold in the UK as a cooking product)- much easier than stewing bones for a day (which tends to annoy my fiance).

I have just started using this too - don't like the smell, but I'm adding it to stews, soups, burgers etc. I'm waiting to see the benefits!!

I take this too, about 3tbs a day. I haven't noticed any benefit -digestion or skin (not sure what John is looking for), but it ups my protein count for the day.

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).

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.
