Hmm I got an own brand one from Sainsburys, here are a few links:

http://www.sainsburys.co.uk/shop/gb/groceries/dr-oetker-vegetable-gel-sachet-195g

There seems to be a few own brand supermarket ones, but Dr. Oetker is quite a famous name that you should find in the shops.


Ah I see you meant the agar based gelling powders. I think these are different from gelatin as they don't have the same amino acids etc but a quick search online seems to suggest that the japanese (and I can't argue with them over skin!) believe that agar is beneficial for skin. It is very cheap so well worth picking some up and experimenting with!

Thanks!

Just doing some reading at the moment and it seems like the benefits of powdered gelatin seem to be due to the glycine and proline content which is essential for collagen. Gelatin seems to be especially popular as it gives all these benefits with few extra calories as well as being cheap. A vegetarian could potentionally get these benefits by using proline and glycine powders I think? I might give this a try as I have already liked my results from l-lysine. I do have some concerns about increasing protein intake so will need to think about that.

Rather than separate supplements, what do you think about multi-functional whole food supplements like The Super Elixir Alkalizing Greens?

The Alkalizing Formula is free from synthetic ingredients and is made using premium, cold pressed bio-live ingredients so the body can easily recognise and use every nutrient. Unique ingredients including Chinese herbs and shiitake and maitake mushrooms – a good source of key minerals manganese, selenium, zinc and the "master antioxidant" ergothioneine. Our super greens powder contains a careful mix of pre and probiotics to support digestion. A healthy gut pH balance equals less bloating and a flatter tummy.

The Super Elixir Alkalizing Formula
Ingredients (45 nutrients): Certified Organic Barley Grass1*, Certified Organic Wheatgrass1*, Pineapple1, Apple1, Certified Organic Alfalfa1*, Spinach1, Goji Berry1, Apple Pectin, Fructo oligosaccharides (FOS), L-Glutamine, Linseed Meal1, Psyllium Husk1, Lemon1, Lime1, Beetroot1, Carrot1, Natural Pineapple Flavour, Natural Lime Flavour, Xylitol (sweetener), Acai1, Pomegranate1, Calcium Citrate, Papaya1, Probiotic Blend (Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Bifidobacterium Bifidum, Bifidobacterium Lactis, Bifidobacterium Longum), Certified Organic Spirulina1*, Broccoli1, Grape Seed Extract1, Kelp1, Magnesium Citrate, Milk Thistle Extract, Eleutherococcus senticosus Extract (Siberian Ginseng), Zinc Gluconate, Dandelion Leaves Extract, Maitake Mushroom Extract, Shitake Mushroom Extract, Green Tea Extract, Turmeric1, Aloe Vera1, Horsetail1, Sweetener (steviol glycosides), Copper Gluconate, Beta Carotene, D-Biotin, Selenium Methionine.

There isn't a better for anyone person, as we are all dealing with different issues, lifestyles, genetics. However they are a better combo (i.e. team) than trying either one singularly.

I don't have a product to recommend as I don't know any of it but I believe the best way to stay young and look healthy is to exercise everyday, drink lots of water and eat healthy.

i totally agree...
your skin wont be too good if you do not eat healthy, or exercise, even if you use the most expensive treatment..
