    Great Lakes - Collagen Hydrolysate Unflavored - 16 oz. (1lb / 454g)

    Great Lakes hydrolyzed collagen protein powder supplement is a unique combination of 20 amino acids that support joint and connective tissue health. It is for general use, athletes, and people who have anti-aging health concerns. Collagen offers numerous benefits not only for joints, but also for bones, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, skin, hair, and nails. It combats aging issues like cartilage damage and collagen loss, and it aids the body’s natural ability to heal and repair. Hydrolyzed Collagen also functions to help regulate a large number of the body’s metabolic pathways.

    For Everyone  Including Athletes & People Concerned with Anti-Aging

    • Provide Your Body's Structure with the Nutrition it is Missing – High Protein & Amino Acid Content
    • Support & Maintain Flexible & Healthy Joints & Connective Tissues
    • Aid Your Body's Ability to Heal & Repair – Perfect for Average Daily Use & to Increase Athletic Performance
    • Combat Aging Issues Like Cartilage Damage & Collagen Loss – Help Your Skin Look Younger
    • Increase the Gloss, Shine, & Health of Your Hair & Fingernails
    • Gluten Free   |   Kosher   |   No GMO Ingredients   |   Pasture Raised Beef

    Daily use of Great Lakes Collagen will help you achieve your goal of living a healthy and more complete lifestyle. Especially in this day and age where processed food has become the norm, people are deprived of the essential collagen protein their bodies need to sustain healthy bone and tissue function.

    6 Reasons to Use Collagen

    Protein is the 2nd Most Plentiful Substance in the Body (after water)
    It is needed for the growth and repair of every cell in the body. Up to 40% of the body is made up of connective tissue, 70% of the connective tissue is collagen. Protein is naturally considered the building blocks of the metabolism.

    Collagen is the Protein That Forms Connective Fibers in Tissues
    such as skin, ligaments, cartilage and bones. Collagen also acts as a kind of intracellular glue that gives support, shape and bulk to blood vessels, bones, and organs such as the heart, kidneys and liver. Collagen is also required for the repair of blood vessels, bruises and broken bones.

    Collagen Hydrosylate is Unique in its Amino Acid Structure
    because of its high amounts of glycine and proline, which are found in lower amounts in other protein food supplements. After the age of 25 the body’s natural ability to produce the amino acids diminishes, but can be easily obtained from adding collagen protein to the diet.

    Both Cartilage & Bone in Joints are Subject to Continual Physical Stress
    and are constantly being broken down and replaced. When a person does not have enough raw materials in their diet to combat the collagen breakdown, the joints begin to wear out. Continuous daily intake of Collagen Hydrolysate, 2 tablespoons (12 g) morning and evening, may benefit nails, hair, skin, ligaments, tendons and cartilage.

    The Sustained Use of Hydrolyzed Collagen Has Been Reported to Have Beneficial Effects
    on other connective tissues like tendons, ligaments, cartilage, joints and bone. Cartilage that covers the surface of joints is composed of cells called chondrocytes that are embedded in an extracellular matrix that contains collagen fibers and other molecules that are linked into an integrated network with hyaluronic acid.

    Joint Degeneration Due to Excessive Wear & Tear is a Major Problem in Athletes
    Damage occurs with excessive stress on major joints from occupational activities that involve repetitive motion. Hydrolyzed collagen may be an effective supportive nutrient for individuals with osteoarthritis and osteoporosis; and its level of safety makes it attractive as an agent for long term use in these chronic disorders.

    Replenish Your Amino Acids
    Collagen is the most abundant protein found naturally in animals and humans, and amino acids are a primary element of life’s sustenance. What makes this product unique are the high amounts of Amino Acids – Alanine, Glycine and Proline - that you won’t find in other protein supplements. The same collagen which is found naturally in your bones, skin and cartilage can be replenished with hydrolyzed collagen. This bioactive product contains 92% protein and is easily assimilated by the human body. Hydrolyzed collagen promotes cell growth which produces synovial fluids that first lubricate joints and then build tissue.

    Science says that up to 40% of all protein in the body is collagen and 70% of protein in connective tissue is made up of collagen. Collagen is the precursor of gelatin and, at Great Lakes Gelatin; they extract collagen first and then form gelatin through congealing processes. Both have the same health benefits.
    Great Lakes Collagen Hydrolysate is Type l. Type I, II or III are all found in different molecular weights in tissue. However, once the body ingests any one of the types, it will break down into the least common denominator known as peptides and polypeptides. This is done by the enzymatic action of the stomach. Great Lakes has found no scientific proof that Type III is better than Type I.

    Fast Assimilation
    Made from pasture raised Kosher beef, Great Lakes Gelatin is pure and easily digested within minutes after ingestion. It's unflavored and cold and hot liquid soluble for mixing easily into drinks or recipes. Since Great Lakes Gelatin Collagen is hydrolyzed, it will not congeal.

    Great Lakes Gelatin Collagen provides the missing nutritional links to help you look and feel younger. Science has shown that collagen/gelatin helps the body regulate cell growth and improves skin tissue strength, elasticity and smoothness.

    In addition, Collagen and Gelatin assist the body in naturally replacing dead skin cells while promoting beautiful glossy hair and healthier, stronger fingernails. It has also been shown that the skin-firming and circulation-boosting properties of collagen hydrolysate may reduce the amount and appearance of cellulite.

    Collagen Holds our Bodies Together
    It is known that by our mid-twenties, our bodies start losing their natural ability to repair connective tissue, bones, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, blood cells, skin, tissue, hair and nails. Scientists have discovered that hydrolyzed collagen can provide the missing nutritional links to aid in the body’s ability to repair these critical areas. Hydrolyzed collagen is a unique combination of amino acids that can promote healing and conditioning over other protein, especially for bone and joint health care. Amino acids are collectively beneficial to cell reproduction and the distinctive spectrum of this product can promote the growth of healthy tissue.

    Collagen Hydrolysate is Different
    Collagen hydrolysate differs from regular gelatin because it will dissolve in cold, warm, or hot liquids without congealing. This allows you more options to take the supplement. Hydrolysate is either heated to a high temperature or enzymatically treated to reduce the "Molecular weight" which limits its ability to congeal. Hydrolysate is measured less than 5000 Dalton (mw) which makes it readily dissolvable in both cold and warm liquids.

    Your Wellness
    When it comes to wellness, nothing beats the natural benefits of Great Lakes Gelatin products. Their high quality products provide the missing nutritional links over most dietary supplements and the nitrogen balance required to support age-related collagen loss and cartilage damage. Collagen is the most abundant protein found naturally in animals and humans. Amino acids are a primary element of life’s sustenance. The Glycine content of collagen assists the liver in handling foreign substances for individuals exposed by habit or occupation to toxic substances like chemicals, pollutants, alcohol or tobacco. Great Lakes Gelatin is excellent for those individuals who may suffer from repetitive joint pain or discomfort. In addition, feelings of alertness, improved concentration, balanced mood, improved energy and increased sense of well-being are reported by many users.

    Ways to Use Collagen Hydrolysate
    Because it can be mixed into hot or cold foods, you can mix it in drinks, cereals, oatmeal, or any other foods that you regularly enjoy. Taking it for six to eight weeks should begin to show improvement. Hydrolysate should be added to empty glass or cup, then pour your desired juice or drink over dry powder and it will more easily dissolve.

    Great Lakes recommend one to two servings per day depending on your diet, activity level and need. One serving in the morning and one later in the day is best. Any excess protein will simply flush out of the body without any issues to you.

    Above & Beyond Quality Safeguarding
    Great Lakes' cattle are grass fed and pasture raised in Argentina and Brazil where they go above and beyond to find the best protein sources. They select cattle from regional farmers far from Buenos Aires where they build relationships with the local cattle farmers who nurture only pasture raised cattle. Great Lakes believes in the adage that quality begins at the most basic source. They will continue to go the extra mile to bring you products that meet or exceed the U.S. Pharmacopeia Standards of quality and your expectations. Regardless of your personal needs, better health, enhanced performance or that additional glisten to your skin or hair, Great Lakes Gelatin will continue to improve the quality of their pure collagen protein to ensure that you can achieve your goals.

    About Great Lakes
    Great Lakes' journey began in 1922 as Grayslake Gelatin. From the beginning, their goal was to supply the highest quality gelatin to both the commercial and consumer markets. In 1988, Grayslake Gelatin became Great Lakes Gelatin Company as demand for their products continued to grow. Originally used as a functional ingredient in products such as gelatin desserts and vitamin capsules, their pure collagen protein gelatin soon became an important supplement to health conscious people around the globe.

    Motivated by customer's positive feedback and passion for health, Great Lakes Gelatin continued on their mission as a forward thinking company. Built upon research and development, their efforts taught them about the tremendous benefits that collagen protein brought to customers and even their pets. As processed foods became more popular, they realized that people were being deprived of the essential collagen protein their bodies needed to sustain healthy bone and tissue function.


    Recommended dosage: Take two rounded tablespoons (12g) twice a day.

    Recommended uses: This product has a low molecular weight so it will dissolve in cold, warm, or hot liquids. Collagen Hydrolysate as a pure protein taken before meals may help curb appetite. Enjoy when added to your favorite drink such as coffee, smoothies, non-carbonated beverages or juice.

    I learned that gelatin helps improve joint problems. I suffer from knee pains and I started to take Great Lakes Gelatin and found that it helped me with my joints. I bought 7 cans from because they have the best price. This collagen gelatin is easy to use. It goes with all kinds of drinks and my nail and hair has seen big improvements as a side effect which is good. I will recommend this product to anyone that needs help with their joints, hair and skin!

    I have tried both the gelatin and this collagen product and both are very good. I prefer the hydrolysis collagen because it devolves quick and easy, whether in cold or hot water. It's so easy to use and I've had great results. My hair and nails are vastly improved in the few months since I started using this product. Definitely something I would highly recommend.

    I love this product! I have been taking it since the middle of March, I've noticed an improvement in my skin, hair, fingernails as well as less joint pain. The sun damage on my arms and face have also faded. I have my husband taking it as well. He recently had his ankle replaced for the second time in a year and this time around he started taking the collagen. There has been a major difference in his healing. Usually scars are red for up to a year after surgery. This time you can't tell where it is. His pain level while healing subsided very early after surgery as well. I also started giving my 13 and 7 year old dogs 2 tsps. Per day and notice especially on my older dog that she is able to get around a lot better, and their hair coat is really shiny. I usually take it in the morning in my coffee or tea, it dissolves easily snd there is no taste to it. I highly recommend this product!
