I'm glad you've spoken with your doctor about it. I found this article, but it seems to suggest all the stuff you've tried. I'm glad you've found that eating more meat helps.

You might try supplementing your diet with gelatin AND collagen may help (use both together). I like to add both powders to a daily smoothie with breakfast. That might allow you to eat some meat, while not feeling overwhelmed.

Also: does anyone else in your family have this? Apparently it can be a genetic condition.

For me (I have nails that split, but I don't have the issue of the free edge growing downward), using Nailtiques Formula 2 only on my nails (no color polish) for at least 6 weeks, and using their nail polish remover. After removing the nail protein, I wash my hands and make sure the nails get some water, then let them dry before filing and putting on fresh nail protein. Some people say letting nails get water, then using a nail protein, and using cuticle oil as a treatment regimen helps nails.

u/allonsyyy · 7 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

There's not a whole lot of gelatin in jello, but you can get supplemental gelatin. I got this stuff. It's got tons of amino acids, dissolves in cold water and doesn't gel so you can put it in anything you drink. They sell stuff that gels too, if you want to make your own jello. The gelly stuff comes in the red can.

u/wkoen1 · 7 pointsr/loseit

I hope this answer doesnt ramble to much.
I have seen alot of people that were the same age have very bad loose skin. Do i think that age makes things tricker yes, but It is my opinion that its largely a situation people approach the wrong way. Instead of prevention mindset, they take on a fear mindset. If you dont have significant loose skin yet. I think you are in a good place to prepare.

I have some loose skin, its pretty minimal compared to anyone that have lost the same weight. I feel like my loose skin was the same all the way up until this picture taken this January.

If you can see my chest has what appears to be loose skin, which seemed the case.

Below i am 11.5% body fat 9 months later
muscle mass stayed the same(important note)
Fat % went from 23% to 11.5
I lifted weights all of that time and very intensely(heavy weight) in the last 4 months.

In this picture my chest is radically different. Really all I did was a calorie deficit, lifting 4 times a week religiously and ate 1 gram of protein per lb of body weight.

As far as I would put it into two categories. If I knew what I know now I believe I would have virtually no loose skin.

Things I did right in the old days :
I lifted weights(very important)
I ate pretty high protein( although i didnt count the grams then)
I drank alot of water to deal with eating alot of protein.

Things I wish I knew now.

  • I lost that weight in 8 months. That is way-way to fast. I think 100lbs in a year is the minimum i would recommend to someone.
    I would have taken at least a year and been more patient.

  • Eating highly nutritious meals is important----supplementing with whole food sourced vitamins is good back up

    -I would have lifted heavy weights (5-8 reps to exhaustion) in a 3 day a week rotation. I have read and experimented with the myth that people should lift lighter. It really isnt true. If you can lifting heavy is something that will challenge that muscle and rebuild it with protein.

    -I wouldnt have done crazy amounts of cardio I have read so much now on how calorie restriction and intensely long cardio creates alot of damage to muscles leaving your loose skin looking way worse because there is alot of muscle mass lost.

  • I would have used high quality collagen supplements. In the past 2 months ive used this, to help heal any remaining loose skin. It takes alot of time but I have alot of faith in what ive read for many years about it. My approach would be to take the reccommended dose of this daily during a weight loss of siginificant proportions.


    It is very absorbable by the body and tastes fine mixed with protein powder.

  • Vitamin C(i only buy buffered, time released vitamin c) because it is better absorbed and you absorb more. Vitamin C supplementation is necessary to really Get the most out of collagen supplements Ive read, as well as it helps heal skin. After my dad said he took large amounts of timed release vitamin c I wanted to experiment with it. So im taking 4 capsules of 500mg time released buffered C in the morning and evening along with collagen. I am only taking 2 table spoons of collagen per day though, because it can get pricey at that rate.


    ---Last piece of info---I would say Ive learned that getting to 12% AND under using these techiniques of muscle preservation and loose skin prevention are the only way to know how much loose skin you will have left over. The last step is the one im on to correct any remaining loose skin by putting on muscle mass. Ive wanted to do that and have now educated myself on it. Its really very straightforward to do it in a way you wont gain fat. You eat slightly over maintainence level of calories on most of the days in the week and 2-3 days you eat in a 20% defecit preventing any fat gain, sprinkle some high intensity interval training and your sure to succeed. I only workout 1 hour 3 days a week now lifting heavy.

    Hopefully id didnt over explain to much:)
u/[deleted] · 6 pointsr/Paleo

I skip it and just use collagen protein powder -- I put it in my smoothies. Here's what I use:

I'm not saying it has all the benefits of bone broth, but it's super convenient.

u/MovementTom · 5 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

Ultimately intelligent training and proper recovery and mobility work will give probably the biggest benefit to your joints. However when bodyweight training or simply aiming to be healthier it is important to have low levels of inflammation. Glucosamine can help but a solid omega 3 supplement would be similar. I'd personally recommend the following as a joint stack.

Collagen - Can by in a collagen hydrolysate form which is powdered (here) or simply drink a good bone/chicken broth daily. Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body and the one found in your joints. among other places. I'd recommend 10g a day, you can add to shakes or even cups of tea or coffee as it is heat stable. Alternatively drink 1-2 cups of bone broth a day. I personally have the bone broth daily and collagen every now and again.

Omega 3/Cod Liver Oil - To generally lower inflammation. I prefer a good cod liver oil, like this as it comes with those good omega 3's and a load of fat soluble vitamins like A, D, E, K2 etc. I take 1 tsp daily. Consuming oily fish daily can give the same effect.

Curcumin Phytosome - Curcumin is a turmeric extract that is a very powerful anti-inflammatory, I personally take this daily and feel huge help with inflammation compared to when I don't. 500mg of a good extract daily. Consuming just turmeric isn't as good as you'd have to take like 20g of it, it's also not particularly well absorbed.

Vitamin C - This helps your body synthesize it's own collagen. Buy it in a crystal form of L-Ascorbic acid. Would recommend 1-3g daily taken throughout the day.

Generally have a good diet that is low in inflammatory foods, like grains (wheat, oats, barley), pasteurized dairy, seed oils (rapeseed/canola, sunflower), processed foods and sugar, but high in oily fish, good quality meat, nuts, seeds, vegetables, fruit and raw dairy :)

u/BallahDean · 4 pointsr/AskMenOver30

Sure you can just own it, as of course, it's genetics. But there are a few things you can do to keep a more youthful look, and that starts from the inside out. I'm a dude about to turn 33, I still get carded, and just last week I was approached by a 23 year old female that assumed I was an NYU undergrad (in an obvious come-on).

I eat/drink a ton of leafy greens, kale and spinach etc is your friend. I drink a green protein shake and add Collagen, it's great for your hair, nails and skin.

In a total Patrick Bateman move, I put on a Rhassoul Clay mask a few times a week (not the stuff linked, but that'll explain what it is). As it dries it shrinks and brings blood to the surface of your face and pulls a ton of oil and other crap out of your pores.

Plenty of sunscreen, wear sunglasses during the day, and moisturize before bed.

I would even take it a step further and get a juicer and make your own vegetable juice, I feel like my skins glows when I drink veggies every day.

It's all about clean livin' once you hit your mid/late 20's. Just take care of yourself and you'll notice it.

u/Bizlemon · 3 pointsr/glutenfree

I promise it will get better! Eliminating your allergens will make you feel so good, and you'll realize that it's worth it. I also feel like it's worth noting that naturopaths do not do the testing themselves. Bloodwork gets sent out to labs.

Regarding intestinal repair, I highly recommend hydrolyzed gelatin, and probiotics! The gelatin really helps heal the lining of the intestines, and the probiotics helps replenish the good bacteria that is lacking, which is creating the excessive allergy producing environment. Have you read up on leaky gut/intestinal permeability?

u/_forever_alone · 3 pointsr/xxfasting

Try these foods: https://www.eatthis.com/stop-sugar-cravings/

Also do hiit cardio like tabata or weight lifting. You can Google "hiit cardio routines" and find one that works for you.

As odd as it might sound add real butter and take all margarine out of your diet. All these things I've posted have worked for me. And, if you're on an estrogen birth control pill then use a gelatin like https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005KG7EDU/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_awdb_t1_GTecBbBA1W18K

because it'll help with the negative effects of estrogen plus make your skin and nails glow and grow in time for your vacation :-)

If you use that food list to eat a heavy nut and seed plant based diet and consume good lean animal protein (if you choose) and add a good low carb Greek yogurt and nutritional yeast you'll never have a sugar craving again lol

I feel like a goddess eating that diet. And you get full faster and end up not spending more even though nuts usually cost more. Good luck!

u/yanrianr · 3 pointsr/bigboobproblems

You're welcome, and I'm glad I could help! :)

I think that's really awesome. I mean, truthfully I don't know how it would affect you (some women say their breasts actually appear larger, some go down in size, some don't really change that much, and yeah just different for each woman), but I definitely don't think it would hurt and hey there's always the added benefit of the rest of your body becoming fit.

And yeah, the gelatin thing is actually crazy cool. Basically gelatin stimulates your body to produce more collagen, which improves the elasticity and helps with sagging skin, stretch marks, and wrinkles (so not only will it help with firming up your breasts but also it can fade stretchmarks-unfortunately some might be permanent and help prevent wrinkles). So yeah definitely really awesome.

So basically what I do is mix 2 tablespoons of Collagen Hydrolysate in chicken broth twice a day. And also I get 2 boxes of the jello mix (the flavor doesn't matter, but it definitely is better to get the sugar free kind) and only use the boiling water to mix it (so only use half the water that it says) and eat it as snack.

But again this is just what has helped me, so I don't know if any of this would actually help or not, but I hope it will be able to. :)

u/feralfred · 3 pointsr/1200isplentyketo

Our local butcher does a 'Meat For A Week' pack for £15 (scroll down the linked page to see it). I get one of these every week.

Added to this are my regular staples (it should be noted - many other things are purchased for my non-keto partner):

At least one whole iceberg lettuce per day (for volume!)
Mackerel in brine
Anchovies in Olive Oil
Very light olive oil for cooking and mayo-making
Coconut milk and creamed coconut, to make yoghurt and fat bombs with.
Gelatin, and Collagen from Great Lakes
Stevia tabs
Whatever spices I fancy - usually Smoked Paprika and Cumin
EDIT: Almost forgot - this has become my new best friend! - Nutritional Yeast Seasoning

Not a massive list of inspiring food, I know! I do like to keep a simple routine - though I am experimenting with different stuff, this week I'm trying out home made jelly babies!

u/catsalots · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

I also don't like meat very much. Buckwheat, quinoa, oats, seed and nut butters, eggs, greek yogurt, and cheese. I did not eat cheese before getting pregnant (I still don't like it melted). But I get so desperate sometimes for food at night and I'm too tired to make anything real.

I have hated every protein powder I've ever tried. Gelatin is pretty good for you, and has a fair amount of protein. I put this in my drink sometimes (it is the kind that does not gel up and you cannot taste it):

Depending on your height and weight, you may not need all of 75g of protein a day. I'm short, so I assume I don't need that much.

My favorite quinoa patty recipe:

I make them bigger because I am lazy and finish baking them in the oven so the egg gets cooked through.

Edit: If you do go with the gelatin be careful, it can act as a laxative!

u/Ketosis2018 · 2 pointsr/keto

Pork chops & bacon, and an occasional steak are my main sources of meat. I can’t do birds or ground meats. I do eggs very rarely.

I use Great Lakes Collagen in my coffee every morning. It’s tasteless, so it could be added to any hot or cold drink.

u/lswiz · 2 pointsr/ketorecipes

I like great lakes collagen or the bullet proof is also good. They are kind of expensive, but they basically have replaced protein powder for me. If you want to be able to throw it into smoothies I recommend the great lakes, because it mixes better in cold drinks. Bullet proof gets chunky in smoothies, but has a wider range of amino acids.

u/Zeak_The_Plumber · 2 pointsr/Whatcouldgowrong

That's somewhat of a relief, I was really feeling for you... I used to skate all the time in my younger, developmental years. Unlike you, I never really fell so hard I injured something, but holy crap, my knees now (at 26) feel like they've gone through some insane shit.

I feel like that scene in Batman where the doctor tells him "Mr. Wayne, you have no cartilage left in your knees... I cannot recommend you go BASE jumping"

I'm not sure what kind of supplements or medications you've tried, but this Bone Broth has changed my life. I notice MUCH less inflammation in my joints and I'm even back to running 3-4 miles every couple of days.

I originally found out about it after reading an interview with Kobe Bryant and why he says his knees are in better shape than guys half his age. (Yes I know he does lots of other things, but the first thing he said that changed his game was his nutritionist making him eat bone broth every day).

The stuff I linked you has almost no taste and I just mix a spoonful of it into my milk twice a day.

It might be worth a shot for you and if it doesn't work, you're only out 20 bucks.

u/BigTexan1492 · 2 pointsr/keto

They also make packets like Crystal Light packets if you will be traveling. Tastes pretty good. You might also check if your local GNC carries it.

u/CalcifersGhost · 2 pointsr/1200isplentyketo

I have something in that range for hair - gellatin/collagen. But I think it's from a similar source?

u/Mister_Cupcake · 2 pointsr/ketogains

Their collagen hydrolysate doesn't get thick and is more like a protein powder. I think it's a lot better than gelatin in bp coffee.

u/ovariesb4brovaries · 2 pointsr/blogsnark

Someone here recommended this one, and then serendipitously, my Trader Joe's started carrying it. Do not believe that it is flavorless. I put it in my coffee because it seems to dissolve better in hot liquids, and the flavor of the coffee mostly overpowers it. The canister recommends 2 scoops, twice a day, which seems like a LOT. I do 1.5-2 scoops in my coffee once a day.

u/fehrsway · 2 pointsr/ketogains

I saw a recipe that uses pork rinds as a “batter”, I’ve never tried it but it’s a neat idea for keto fried chicken. Outside of that, it’s the only real use of pork rinds on keto in my opinion... it’s not exactly a solid source of nutrition and even the packaging says not a significant source of protein (at the last bag I had said it in the nutrition facts).

I get downvoted every time I say it, but while saturated fats have always been blown way out of proportion, in my opinion it still may not be wise for you to get say 90% of your calorie intake from saturated fats, especially if you are of a certain genetic variation (I’ll have to look into exactly what that is), and I’m not entirely informed on the longevity affects of a high saturated fat diet, even in the context of a very low carb diet. Avocados, natural peanut butter from the machine at Kroger, macadamia nuts, EV olive oil - MUFAs are my primary fat source with around 35 grams (+/- 10 grams) coming from saturated fats. Olive oil in everything. I’ll make tuna with boiled eggs, mayo, mustard, a tbsp of EVOO and pink salt/pepper/paprika, pretty much daily lunch. Sometimes it’s chicken instead of tuna. I don’t shy away from beef at all, but I still limit it to 2-3 times a week, because I’m also eating salmon 2-3 times a week.

I also regularly make a smoothie that is for sure not that keto because of the higher carb content, but on days I have it - it’s the only carbohydrates I have... kale, spinach, avocado, Garden of Life Raw Meal (the vanilla chai or chocolate flavor), hydrolyzed collagen, that fresh Kroger peanut butter, a half cup or so blueberries, about 2 cups water or almond milk if that’s your thing, ice, blend that baby up. You get use to the texture.

These are just things I do, but there are multiple ways to skin this keto cat. For the record, I’m a male, 28yo I stand between 5’10 - 5’11 and started at 240 and weighed in this morning at 174, last did my tape measurements and my body fat was at 27%... still on the path

Good luck to you!

u/Watawkichaw · 2 pointsr/nutrition

This stuff is amazing


Use it like a protein powder, no taste- mix it with anything (don't pour it into hot water, put it in cold and heat it, if that's how you end up using it)

Great for your gut, paleo...

u/cookred · 2 pointsr/pastry

one more question: can collagen hydrolysate be substituted for Gelatin in panna cotta? I have this https://www.amazon.com/Great-Lakes-Gelatin-Hydrolysate-Unflavored/dp/B005KG7EDU?th=1 And I was going to make this panna cotta recipe, could you substiute the gelatin for collagen hydrolysate? https://old.reddit.com/r/GifRecipes/comments/8zwcox/strawberry_panna_cotta/e2luvup/

u/doobai · 2 pointsr/leangains

Stupid reddit formatting... it messed up the numbering, so I used letters instead.

I'll get right to it. I'll write out the stuff in bullet points for convenience.

I highly suggest you spend at least 3 weeks just following a regular 1-2-3-whatever meals everyday eating whatever you like. Just avoid IF for now. Do the following instead:

a) Get your Vitamin D levels checked. Go to a good doctor and have the 25-hydroxy Vitamin D test done. Get a high dosage prescribed in consultation with your doctor while discussing test results. One of the benefits of adequate Vit D levels in the body is better function of your gut + intestines.

b) Buy 'apple cider vinegar with mother' from your local store. It's basically unpasteurized organic ACV that looks cloudy. Take two tablespoons of this after all your meals. It will help break down your food faster, provides digestive enzymes and reduces the acidity in your stomach. Remember to drink lots of water.

c) Buy the following herbs and spices in bottle form (easier to open, use and store away):

Coriander seeds
Fenugreek seeds (or leaves)
Cumin seeds (or ground cumin)

I've had success of varying degrees trying the above 4 individually at different times, especially coriander seeds. Either take it after your meal, or an empty stomach. Shove a small palmful of it in your mouth, chew well, swallow, and drink plenty of water.

Thyme has some cooling effects in your gut + intestines.

Fenugreek helps with colic, energy and a notable increase in testosterone. I'm still experimenting with this.

Cumin, when ingested, is transported directly to your liver. So just either chew the seeds or mix the ground cumin in water and drink. Wait for a while and see how your gut + intestines react.

You can also try ground ginger or ginger root.

d) Substitute cow's milk with either goat, sheep, camel or almond milk. I personally suggest camel's milk as it is the thinnest of all milks and is way more beneficial and tolerable.

e) Introduce a natural fermented drink in your system for a good source of probiotics. I recommend you search for 'milk kefir grains', buy some and start cultivating it in your favorite milk. Google on kefir how to guides etc. It's very easy, I strain mine every other days in a plastic colander in 10 secs and I get kefir-milk.

f) When eating, chew the hell out of your food, make sure it turns into mush in your mouth before you swallow. This will ease the strain on your stomach. The extra 2-5 minutes you take chewing your food well will translate to x hours saved not spending time in the bathroom.

g) Gelatin. One of the major benefits is healing leaky gut. Other benefits include healing cartilage, joints, skin, hair, nails etc.

Buy this one, it's beef collagen: https://www.amazon.com/Great-Lakes-Gelatin-Collagen-Hydrolysate/dp/B005KG7EDU/ref=pd_sim_325_4?ie=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B005KG7EDU&pd_rd_r=QT9T0VRV9Y330F85KN8N&pd_rd_w=yXfnn&pd_rd_wg=WUE94&psc=1&refRID=QT9T0VRV9Y330F85KN8N

You can also find marine collagen here: http://www.vitalproteins.com/

Additionally, buy gummy bears or fruit loops or whatever that are manufactured with beef gelatin and fish gelatin. They're cheap. I personally buy Haribo Gold gummy bears (made with halal beef gelatine) and some random American-made marshmallows (made with fish gelatine). I alternate between a few pieces of gummy bears one day, and a few pieces of marshmallows another day etc.

h) Last and one of the more important points in this post, bone broth. Either buy good bone broth with nice filmy collagen from a nice restaurant everyday, or make your own. I recommend making your own will produce more collagen/mineral content. Use a pressure cooker to make some and it will only take 1.5 hours: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=bone+broth+pressure+cooker

OP, I feel your pain about GI intolerance and using IF as a workaround. I do the same thing in some of my rest days, except I do a 'full' fast which is, no eating or drinking from dusk till dawn. It does work really well as I do not get the frequent annoying GI issues/painful constipation/frequent flatulence etc, but it's STILL a band-aid solution to the problem. So I turned my attention to conventional remedies written in all the points listed above and I've had good improvements. I hope you'll benefit from it too.

u/teriyakisoba · 2 pointsr/ketorecipes

I don't know what to sub, but I've had this sitting in my Amazon lists forever.

u/CalicoFox · 2 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

I have a bunch of stretch marks, and I call them my tiger stripes! I'm very proud of them. Once your weight stabilizes, the stretch marks fade and eventually disappear. Eating low-carb will help, too. Rubbing coconut oil on them also helps (a little goes a long ways, so don't go crazy!), and making sure you get collagen in your diet, too.

You can get collagen from high-quality gelatin like this one (which does not gel so can be put in coffee) and/or this one (which does gel and can be used to make jello). Please note that brand-names Jell-o and Knox are very low quality. You can also drink bone broth or just swallow the gristle when you eat your steak.

Last but not least, drinking lots of water also helps! Stay hydrated!

u/themeanferalsong · 2 pointsr/Lyme

I don't think permanently, no. It's reversible. I had tendonitis in my foot for 2 years and couldn't get rid of it, but taking collagen powder every day healed my tendon. Try taking collagen powder, it's recommended in Buhner's book "Healing Lyme." I take this one:


u/way2funni · 2 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

If you do not have physical injuries* and are suffering from a degenerative or just wear and tear issue on your knees, you might try supplementing your diet with gelatin or collagen. It may take several weeks for a few months for you to convince yourself it's not some sort of placebo effect but it helped me with bad knees and back. If you think about it, it makes sense. Virtually nobody cooks like they did a couple of generations ago when we would boil bones to make soup and such.

I make a big container of Jello using 2 small boxes (sugarless) and then throw an extra tablespoon of either the stuff I linked above and make really dense jello that you can practically chew, or you can use the hydrolysate version which doesnt thicken and you can mix with anything, I add it to my coffee. Never know it's there. Hope this helps.

  • even if the root cause of your knee /joint pain is from being injured, give this a try. It's cheaper than a copay to see a doc and you might just be surprised. Give it a good month and see how you feel.

u/hipstervenser · 1 pointr/keto

May I ask why you don't want to have breakfast? Is it a time thing, or are you just not feeling it? Understandable either way.

I replace butter with coconut oil for the "Bullet Proof" coffee. Personally, I can't stand the mouth feel of 1-2 tbs melted butter. I feel as though it's all over my face once I'm done.

I'll alternate BP coffee with Tim Ferris' "Titanium Tea", which, I'll be honest, is not really for the faint of heart. Not quite as enjoyable as the BP coffee, but it's different... Spicy. Keeps me going without food til' 3-4pm. Health benefits from Turmeric and ginger, too.

Finally, something I've been messing around with is Chicken/Meat stock with a tablespoon or two of beef callogen. Will also add coconut oil to this. I personally love it.

u/Scrump507 · 1 pointr/keto

Two rules of thought... don't know how accurate.

  1. Many massages while losing weight. Idea is that the massages help break up the subcutaneous (spelling?) fat under the skin, helping the skin shrink faster.
  2. Using something like the following product: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005KG7EDU?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00
    Which is supposed to be good for quite a bit of good things in your body, one of which is skin elasticity... which can only be good so that you skin has an easier time of it getting back to normal as you lose weight. And the older you are, the less elastic your skin is.
    I can't prove or disprove this. :)
u/Sintara · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

Completely anecdotal but I read gelatin helps. It provides your body with the necessary nutrients for skin elasticity. I took this throughout my pregnancy, tried for once a day but forgot some days, had it twice on others. I didn't get any stretchmarks on my belly but got a few small ones on my boobs after giving birth. I had stopped taking the gelatin by then. It's supposed to help repair and fade old stretchmarks too so I've started it up again now.

I have a lot of stretchmarks on my thighs, hips and boobs from puberty so I was convinced my belly would be covered in them. Jojoba oil supposedly mimics natural body oils so I moisterized my stomach with that on occasion.

I think position of the baby makes a big difference as well, mine was sideways (back to my side and his side to the front) all the way up to the end, and I gave birth at 38+5. Baby was 3kg30g or about 6.6 pounds.

Aside from the iron, I started taking this collagen supplement. You should definitely check in with a pediatrician though. Good luck!

u/TriedAndProven · 1 pointr/keto

I use collagen in my morning coffee and added to my post-workout protein stack as a joint health supplement. I've been using it for about six months, and an old (10+ years) nagging climbing injury of mine no longer hurts.

Could be totally unrelated, but it's relatively cheap, available on Amazon, has some protein, and certainly isn't going to hurt anything.

ETA: This is the brand I use.

Every morning I take my normal dosage of women's gummies (Costco), a fish/krill oil, and a probiotic that I buy through a family member. The collagen powder I take is this one and I really like it! I can mix it with my morning coffee or in smoothies and it's not gelatinous (the red container is).

Some people rave about the pork clouds.


Some other ideas:

I've started adding collagen powder to my oatmeal and hot drinks (coffee and tea). It's pure, flavorless protein and apparently good for joint health... which is a plus with all the running and jumping lately.

I get it here but there are plenty of other options: Great Lakes Gelatin Collagen Hydrolysate Beef, Kosher, 16 oz. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005KG7EDU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_eV7OCbHGSFRND

Eat collagen. Your body can break that collagen down into lysine and proline, and then use those to build collagen again. Also note your body uses vitamin C to catalyze the construction so make sure you've got vitamin C in your diet too as you add proline and lysine. If you're over 30 (and hence experiencing lower-than-peak HGH levels) your body will be very slow to rebuild connective tissue unless you're providing a lot of the raw materials.

Simply mixing gelatin into my coffee for two days helped me heal an ankle injury that had gone without healing for about a month. It was gross and slimy, but I chugged that nasty coffee and it worked. Your body can heal connective tissue just as readily and steadily as it heals a cut on your skin, if you give it the right raw materials to work with.

There's hydrolized collagen, which is processed further than gelatin, which means it will dissolve perfectly into cool liquids so it's not slimy and gross. I mix it into my coffee every day and my joints are all stronger and less injury-prone.

A couple useful links for you:

  • https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collagen
  • https://www.amazon.com/Great-Lakes-Gelatin-Collagen-Hydrolysate/dp/B005KG7EDU

    If you think maybe I'm nuts and don't want to drop $22 plus shipping just to test some rando's theory on the internet, buy a box of gelatin for like $2 at the grocery store, in the baking aisle. Gelatin is collagen that's just been boiled down like crazy until it's a powder. Mix it into something hot like tea or coffee, and be prepared to drink a nasty slimy drink. But it's worth it.

    Or just eat a shit-ton of jello - as long as it's not some vegetarian thing jello has gelatin and therefore collagen in it.

Here's what i was recommended and has been working well for me.

Amazon Link

It works surprisingly well for me. Even though it is 20 dollars it does last quite a long time.

u/vantha · 1 pointr/keto

I like to use a protein base gelatin, like Great Lakes Gelatin.

u/JDismyfriend · 1 pointr/nutrition

Protein, but specially Collagen. I use this :)

I drink this collagen thing and I also eat a lot of jerky. The Jack Links beef stick is 10g of protein with 50cals

u/JoeMarron · 1 pointr/gainit

Try eating some gelatin. It increases the collagen in your skin which will help fight stretch marks and just makes your skin healthier in general. You can use it like protein powder.


u/jbarnes222 · 1 pointr/TwoXChromosomes

There are a lot of forms. I've found this to be quality. You don't have to warm the water to dissolve it and it has minimal flavor. If you honestly try it, please let me know how it goes.

I like to mix a tbsp of unsweetened cocoa and hydrolyzed collagen into my daily coffee, but I'm also a weird health nut. If you go to Starbucks, I'd recommend getting a 'blonde' because it has more caffeine and antioxidants than a darker roast.

u/ImBrokenUpAboutIt · 1 pointr/Fitness

I've been using this....http://www.amazon.com/Great-Lakes-Collagen-Hydrolysate-16-Ounce/dp/B005KG7EDU/ref=sr_1_1_s_it?s=grocery&ie=UTF8&qid=1457468101&sr=1-1&keywords=great+lakes+gelatin

Dissolves completely in hot or cold and doesnt change consistency. Two tablespoons is 11g protein and nothing else. Good for when you're doing a flexible dieting program and just need some simple protein to hit your macros.

u/jdm1tch · 1 pointr/Ultralight

So, I’m relying on google translate, but I’m guessing that’s hydrolized collagen much like this?


u/possumosaur · 1 pointr/xxketo

Intermittent fasting is supposed to help with aotophagy, which is the process of your cells actually replacing themselves. So, that is definitely a place to start looking!

For collagen, I've heard good things about this brand: https://www.amazon.com/Great-Lakes-Gelatin-Collagen-Hydrolysate/dp/B005KG7EDU

If you look at ironfistx he says that all collagen types are broken down in the body so that there's no difference between them when being used in the body, what's your opinion on that? http://www.longecity.org/forum/topic/60859-regrowing-cartilage-with-collagen-supplements/page-10

u/chocosausonerythng · 1 pointr/xxfitness

I'm not sure what your $ ballpark is, or your reasons for avoiding whey (if you're a vegetarian this suggestion will NOT work for you), but collagen protein (i use this one) dissolves in anything and has almost no taste or texture. I don't like the texture of most unflavored protein powders, and most flavored varieties are too sweet for me.

My favorite "recipe" is a serving of this powder, 6 oz almond milk, 3 oz coffee, and a tsp of honey or chocolate syrup.

u/festinapeche · 1 pointr/loseit

Well, that's really something you'll have to play around with. Right now I drink black tea with 2 tbsp of collagen hydrolysate (https://www.amazon.com/Great-Lakes-Gelatin-Collagen-Hydrolysate/dp/B005KG7EDU/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1465399453&sr=8-1&keywords=Collagen+Hydrolysate) to help get protein and stave off hunger until I'm ready to eat a meal.

I'm actually cutting back on caffeine, but I would usually also have a cup of coffee with some half and half after the tea with the collagen hydrolysate.

I would drink the sparkling water as often as you want/need/afford at first. Carbonated water is reportedly not great for your teeth, but it's calorie free and should help you transition to a better diet.

Does anyone here ever make smoothie popsicles with gelatin or collagen peptides?

I found this on Amazon and I was already toying around with the idea of making green smoothie popsicles to fool myself into eating more veggies anyway. It'd be cool to sneak in some extra protein as well now that I've cut way back on how much meat I eat (not vegetarian, though). Dole has some really nice frozen fruit & veggie mixes that blend really well into smoothies. And these would let me make a few different flavors at a time, so no need to irritate my roommates with the blender more than once a week.

So I was thinking a recipe like this:

  • 1 Dannon Oikos Tripple Zero container (probably vanilla or orange?)
  • 3/4 cup of frozen fruit/veggie mix
  • 3/4 cup of diet fruit juice or diet lemonade
  • six servings of the collagen

    I just don't know how these would behave together. If you've ever made anything similar please let me know.

So eating Paleo (read Grain Brain) is a diet all about reducing inflammation in the body. It also gives a list of supplements that are recommend by the neurologist that wrote the book. A lot of people with Autoimmune, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Diabetes, Gluten Intolerance and other allergies have had amazing results on this diet. All of which are linked by inflammation. This changed my life (Gluten & other allergies) and my Dad's (Parkinson and arthritis) life. Grain Brain

Two additional things that will help.

1 order gluten free gelatin from Amazon and make home made jello. This will help your joints like a miracle.

Gelatin Supplement

2 Take a melatonin supplement. It's what your body makes to help you sleep but sometimes when are bodies are sick and exhausted it doesn't produce enough. It will force you to get deeper REM and wake up more rested. Start with 5mg and tweak it to your needs. I have been taking it for about 10 years and I now take 20mg. I am 30, 5'7" & weigh 155.

Melatonin Supplement

Remember just like meds you may have to tweak brands and dosages in order to find the most effective results. But you should get relief within about a week of doing at least these two things.
A combination of all of this though took me from incapable of functioning and working a job to almost completely normal and now very successful at work and still improving.

Possible Cure

[Edit: I’m not selling anything and I am only saying it’s a POSSIBLE cure. I thought that this sub was a place where we all try to help each other out. I am not trying to offend anyone. I’m honestly trying to help. If you don’t want to give it a shot, fine. Just don’t attack me for trying to help.]

I have a friend who’s had an ugly patch of psoriasis on his arm for years. I just saw him over the holiday and noticed how great his skin looked. He said he read this article (https://chriskresser.com/5-reasons-why-even-vegetarians-need-gelatin/) and tried what was recommended. His skin cleared up completely in less than three weeks, plus his hair looks great!

In sum: Buy plain, hydrolyzed gelatin, like this: https://www.amazon.com/Great-Lakes-Gelatin-Hydrolysate-Unflavored/dp/B005KG7EDU. Mix 1/4 ounce into any type of hot or cold liquid or smoothie (my friend just puts it in plain water), and drink it once per day. If you buy the product linked above, for example, you get 64 servings at $25, which comes out to 39 cents per serving. Within three weeks, your skin should be cleared up and even your hair will be healthier.

I’m going to order some this coming week. 😃
