Collagen cum protein supplement to protect your joints & build muscle
- A very neutral tasting supplement. I could stacked it with any other liquid with no issues.
- I’m getting older, so it’s in my best interest to look after my joints if I want to have a better quality of life. I felt better when I was on this.
- For myself I keep forgetting to take this supp as it’s not my usual supp routine that I usually consume. To be effective, you must take this regularly.

Modern standards in bodybuilding call for protein powder use. The main problem is that not all of these are pure, are easily absorbed or have high quality protein in them. Besides this, the new formulations may be confusing – as this dietary supplement with collagen. Although it may have a strange name, it does have the power of collagen (the rejuvenating and strengthening agent), as well as the benefits of easily absorbed protein powders.
Marketed as a supplement for joint care, the Great Lakes Gelatin Collagen Hydrolysate is a pure protein powder that’s very simple to use and practical. It is based on Hydrolyzed Collagen, which is a unique amino acid blend with interesting properties. The high concentration of active ingredients stimulates the blood cells, prompting these to multiply at faster rates. This leads to stronger and healthier bones and joints as well as to more rapid healing processes. Therefore, it is a supplement most suitable to athletes and bodybuilders, especially, with amino acids like Alanin, Glycine and Arginine and a total of 11 g of protein per serving.
The prices don’t vary much. You will need between $21 and $25 for a container of 16 oz or 454 g powder.
Taste and Mixability
This product is soluble in cold water, but still, it works best when it’s warm or hot. Mix it as you please, but respect the recommended dosage. It does have a beef taste, which may be displeasing to some.
Unlike the majority of protein powders, this one is based on elements quick to digest and targets the connective tissue. Collagen has a key role in the nitrogen balance, besides that of renewing and strengthening tissue. With only 43 calories per serving and zero grams of fat, it cannot worry the dieters. Plus, it’s got a very low content of sodium – 12 mg, which is just 1% of the recommended daily intake.
The Collagen Hydrolysate can be consumed at any time in the day, from morning until bedtime. Also, it can be mixed with a lot of liquids, from plain water to juice, smoothies and even coffee. Consumers may get to see improvements quickly – most of its buyers tend to notice the changes after one bottle.
The product doesn’t have fiber, nor sugars. However, the downside is that it’s not enriched with vitamins or with mineral, like the high protein products. There are protein supplements out there containing much of those, but this one has a focus on collagen and is, in many ways, irreplaceable. Should you have any questions about the product, you can call the customer service line that’s printed right on the container.
