Hello Smile I'm a new member on the forum and its been wonderful reading through all the great information and incredible amount of knowledge shared by all the members.

I have a question about collagen supplements.Confused I've read that the're good to take in powder form mixed with oj since the vitamin c helps with absorption I assume?

However, I can't decide whether I should take gelatin or collagen powder. To those of you who have had success with this...which one is better and more effective?...and what kind of benefits have you experienced. Any tips would be helful.
Thank you!

COLLAGEN

ORAL
In addition to injectable and topical forms, collagen also comes as an oral dietary supplement, according to ArthritisMD. Usually marketed to relieve symptoms related to connective tissue diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, oral collagen may also have some benefit on aging skin. Some oral collagen products claim that it works to nourish the skin from the inside out where topical collagen applications cannot reach. Additionally, these supplements claim to be a more permanent solution than injectable collagen. The efficacy of oral collagen as a treatment for aging skin has not been proven; it should not be taken without consulting a physician.

GELATIN OVERVIEW INFORMATION
Gelatin is a protein made from animal products.

Gelatin is used for weight loss and for treating osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and brittle bones (osteoporosis). Some people also use it for strengthening bones, joints, and fingernails. Gelatin is also used for improving hair quality and to shorten recovery after exercise and sports-related injury.

In manufacturing, gelatin is used for preparation of foods, cosmetics, and medicines.

How does it work?
Gelatin contains collagen, which is one of the materials that make up cartilage and bone. This is why some people think gelatin might help for arthritis and other joint conditions.

I have always been taking powder form collagen (Milcolla). I have never heard that orange juice makes it easier or more absorbent, but it can't hurt. Vitamin C is good for the skin. They say that Vitamin C helps stimulate you're body to naturally produce collagen too. Very Happy

I'm reading a lot of positive things about gelatin lately; this article says it's anti inflammatory and apparently super anti aging.

Gelatin, stress, longevity

lvnatural, I remember my mother taken Knox gelatin! I started taking Neocell collagen after watching an Oprah show on the rave for collagen in Asia. I've read that hydrolized collagen is better absorbed than products like Knox gelatin. You know it works when a product has 800 reviews!
