Ok because you for some reason cannot post links until your not considered a new member, just go to the search function and type in lip plumper. Scroll down a bit until you see a topic titled, "Eureka... etc." I think that's how its spelt

Here you go, I'm new too so don't worry about trying to find things, you'll make your way. Just remember to use the SEARCH function at the top.

Jan Marini has a product called C Estamins which contains a high dose advanced form of collagen. I have not tried them but I think I have read that other forum members use and like this product. It is sold by EDS.

On and off I try to take some kind of collagen supplements. I'm currently trying Meiji Collagen powder which you mix in juice or water. No discernable taste. When I can afford which is rarely I'll take Fancl's Tense up EX which is their latest collagen drink. Apparently you see results in 10 days. That is their claim but because I take it more for maintenance I can't attest to those claims. I have a friend who's been taking collagen supps for years says it's really helped with her joint pain. Oh and her skin is really to die for as well. So who really knows? Wink

I'm also new to the forum.I'm trying to find collagen supplements that can help me with joint pain and the lack of the collagen I have throughout my body. I have Ehlers-Danlos syndrome which is a rare disease that involves connective tissue, joints, and internal organs. People that have this disease lack collagen. Hear that in the U.S. you can't get collagen supplements.Please don't tell me to do a "search." I'm new, don't know my way around this forum, and would appreciate someone being kind enough, you senior members that have this knowledge, to direct me in the right direction. Would appreciate any info. Fenn or anyone else that takes this, where would I find this Mejii collagen powder? Please help! Crying or Very sad Smile

That's not true, you can definitely get collagen supplements in the U.S..

To help with joint/arthritis pain, you won't a supplement containing chondrotin, glucosamine, hyaluronic acid and Biocell Type II Collagen.

The by-product of using these supplements is also plumper, firmer looking skin and lips, in addition to helping relieve joint/arthritic pain!

Here are some brands that I recommend:

> http://www.iherb.com/ProductDetails.aspx?c=1&pid=4539&at=0

> http://www.iherb.com/ProductDetails.aspx?c=1&pid=3317&at=0

> http://www.iherb.com/ProductDetails.aspx?c=1&pid=2497&at=0

> http://www.iherb.com/ProductDetails.aspx?c=1&pid=3316&at=0

> http://www.iherb.com/ProductDetails.aspx?c=1&pid=2461&at=0


There are other, cheaper supplements out there (some can be found at Walmart or drugstores like Walgreens/CVS), but the above-listed brands from Source Naturals, HydraPlenish and/or Jarrow have been tried by myself and/or other EDS members with great success.

In same cases, you can find the Source Naturals supplements at Whole Foods stores, but the price is marked up MASSIVELY so it's cheaper to order it online from one of the vitamin/supplement retailers on the web. I personally shop with iHerb so I can recommend them as a reputable seller.

HTH,
Carrie

Fancl is a Japanese brand, maybe you can get some from ebay, but it's much cheaper to buy in Japan or Hong Kong.

Fancl has a patented collagen HTC which they claim it will be absorbed more easily.

I am on it too, but I am not sure if it is helping... I will keep taking it though.

But I live in the U.S. How do I get it from Japan or Hong Kong? Is there a web site I can get it from?

You can search Fancl Tense Up at ebay. There are some sellers do ship them to the US. I suggest you get the powder form, as the shipping fee would be much cheaper as opposed to the original glass packages.

From feedback, Fancl has greater and faster effect compared to Meiji Amino Collagen but of course this is reflected in the price differential. I am referring to the drink not the powder or tablets.

Meiji has been reported to make people gain weight because of the base powder ingredients. It also works but effect not so dramatic as Fancl.

So if you need instant great results, e.g. wedding or important event, Fancl drink is more suitable. For maintenance and if you are budget conscious, Meiji is also fine.

I have been taking NeoCell Super Collagen for two years...a must have for hair, skin, nails and joints! I found out about it from an Oprah show. Luckily, its easily available: amazon, local health food stores, all the major online sites like iherb and vitacost. Great reviews on this brand everywhere! Smile

Fancl has a US site to order from. There is also Mitsuwa supplements that I have seen in health food stores lately which is also Japanese.

I have not tried taking them but they are popular in Japan.
