I struggled all my life with taking large pills, powders and elixirs, basically anything that has a medicinal or bitter taste. I kept hearing about this powdered collagen and decided to do my research ( it took me 3 months), to become an informed participant. I do not consume any medicine, synthetic or herbal supplements. I first looked at large bodies of evidenced based research to support why I should consider consuming this product. I found tons and decided to give it a try. First, I bought the single serve and shook it up in a 16oz water bottle, then prayed I would not throw up. Barely and I mean barely any taste whatsoever. Moved on to purchasing a single serve blender—poured 200 ml of organic milk, a splash of carnation milk, 1tspn organic agave, 1tspn organic cocoa powder, 1 scoop collagen powder and 1 scoop maca powder..AGAIN you can’t even taste the powder and no after taste. Results…joint pain gone! Hair growth 1 inch in 1 month, nails are stronger (I like short natural nails), skin–bye bye fine lines and fine wrinkles (the ones you see in the 5x magnifying mirror). For the sake of clarity, my goal was to address some joint pain. The ancillary advantages/outcomes was not what I was seeking–but I am not complaining. I make the shake everyday and drink it after my Pilates and elliptical workout in the am. Oh yes, for us women of a certain age…pre, during or post menopausal, it reduced the flame on and in the heat of the night episodes by 90% –get your sleep back. I am a former ballet dancer and while I am in good health and maintain an uncompromising size 6, I know I was taking my health for granted. Thinking that I could still hitch my wagon to the good genes shooting star. Well all good things come to an end and I really should have been taking supplements all along. Joint pain is reduced by 70% and I’m very pleased. I am not a physician and just sharing my personal results/observations (unintended and intended). I’m still pretty shocked at the results, as I had no expectations of a positive or negative outcome whatsover. Please do your research!
I absolutely love this product! I am on my third tub and even though I started seeing benefits from taking this within two weeks, I wanted to really give it a chance to do its thing. I started taking this for skin health and a hopeful reduction in fine lines. I have taken collagen before, both a popular powdered marine collagen formula (that is pretty popular on Instagram) and one that sources its collagen from chicken and comes in a pill form. I took the marine collagen for at least 3-4 months and made it a couple months with the other one. This has given me far superior results to the others. First I will say that this dissolves just beautifully in warm liquids. I add it to my coffee in the morning and my tea in the evening. I also think that this is pretty much completely tasteless. There is no odor when opening the container and it is nearly undetectable in a beverage, especially once you get used to drinking it. I love that it helps keep me a little more full between meals while boosting the nutrition value of beverages I like to enjoy daily. As for my results, I started seeing increased nail growth in the first couple of weeks. And I really mean increased growth, not just marginally noticeable results. My nail growth was outpacing the longevity of my nail polish which I was pretty excited about it. The next thing I noticed was my hair was growing faster. I didn’t measure but feel convinced that I experienced faster hair growth than I would have had I not been taking it. About 6-8 weeks into taking this collagen twice a day I noticed my lash growth was unreal. They were considerably longer and much fuller looking…other people noticed so it wasn’t just wishful thinking on my part. Lastly, I have noticed right about the 3-month mark that my skin is definitely smoother. I would say I notice about a 30% decrease in the appearance of fine lines. I haven’t made any changes to my skincare routine so I can safely attribute the change to the collagen. I can’t speak to any digestive benefits as I didn’t suffer from any issues prior to taking this product. I truly love taking this collagen and consider it an essential part of my daily routine. Highly recommend!*EDIT 9/11/16* The last couple of months I thought I would drop down to just a single scoop serving per day and I feel that I can absolutely notice a difference in my results. My nails don’t grow quite as quickly and even though my lashes still look nice, they are not quite as full looking as they were before. For me the most noticeable is my skin – it doesn’t feel or look quite as plump and smooth which is a bit of a drag. Your mileage may vary, but for me I need to take this twice a day to get the results I want and to maintain them.*EDIT 10/1/17* I have faithfully been using Vital Proteins collagen since I wrote the initial review. I switched over to their marine collagen formula because I had heard from a friend the type of collagen derived from fish scales is easier to absorb in the body. I couldn’t really tell if the absorption was better but after several months on the marine collagen, I can say that I did not feel I saw the same results as I did with this product. Most noticeable is that I felt my hair growth returned to what it was before collagen and my lashes weren’t nearly as long and full. Kind of disappointing to be honest. The marine formula is a good product but just doesn’t work for me as well as this one does. It is also more expensive and doesn’t last as long as a tub of this does. I am testing out plant-based collagen so I’ll see what the results are with that the next little bit. If I go back to animal-derived collagen I know I will be coming right back to this product and I won’t be experimenting anymore. This has still given me the best results to date.*EDIT 12/30/18* While I really enjoy the plant-based collagen (and continue to use it) I’ve added this into my routine again and my results are next level and coming back so quickly, even though I haven’t taken it for several months. And I’m only at 1 scoop a day so I’m excited to go back to a full serving! This is still my favorite collagen and I won’t be experimenting with any others. I’ve found the best and plan on sticking with it!
Audrey S. –
I am an adult woman with Autism and ADHD, so I have issues with textures in food (among other things). Protein and collagen powders can be absolutely nauseating and meal/drink ruining for me if they don’t dissolve and mix well into food or liquids. If I can feel it in mouth, it turns my stomach and my skin crawls. So many leave this slightly gritty, or frothy texture to drinks that others may not notice but I 100% will.This powder is entirely undetectable to me.It dissolves quickly and with only a slight stir needed in my coffee or hot tea and I never have clumps floating around or that abhorrent texture in mouth after drinking it. No flavor whatsoever either.Effect wise, I have seen a decrease in aches in my knees and lower back where my joints have always been an issue, even as a kid. The pain after a long day of work isn’t eliminated but it is lessened! I’m not having to pop Aleve and Tylenol like candy every day.I can’t really speak to skin improvements as I have a fairly hardcore skincare routine that’s got me in peak condition there so if this is doing anything I’m not seeing it on my skin, but I will say my hair has been growing faster and seems shinier where the new growth is at. I’m having to go in for trims a more often than usual and taking this the last few months is the only new thing so I feel safe attributing the extra growth to that.Price is very reasonable for how much you get in the big tub too! I use two scoops in my morning coffee and sometimes an extra in my yogurt at lunch and it lasts a very long time.
Vital Proteins Collagen capsules are one supplement I will NEVER go without! I’m in my mid 50s, and due to some health-related and drug-drug related interactions, I developed very thin skin on my forearms and shins. I knew my skin was thin because it would bruise far easier than it should have, and it would tear open if I hit it against a smoothe surface!! However, when an urgent care practitioner was patching me up after I fileted my shin wide open from falling on a frozen gopher mound, (yes, you read that right), he said, “You have skin like a 90-year-old!” I was so embarrassed. I knew I had to find something asap to help me grow healthy tissue. When I saw this product on the shelf, I figured it was worth a try since nothing else seemed to work. Within a few weeks I noticed I wasn’t bruising as bad as I had been. Soon after, my skin didn’t bust wide open when I ran it into a doorknob or kitchen counter. Within 6 to 8 weeks, my skin was practically normal again!! I was elated! Then I ran out and couldn’t find any of the capsules at any store I went into, so I didn’t take them for a couple months. I started noticing some very light bruising coming back. I quickly got on the computer and ordered some more capsules immediately! I’m happy to report NO MORE BRUISING or open wounds!! I 100% believe in this product and recommend it to anyone having these issues with their skin.
UPDATE August 23, 2021:Still eating this stuff like a crazy person because it continues to work so well. I found the Mio and water combo wasn’t getting this down anymore so I switched to Jello 🙂 I’ve tried several flavors and the cherry seems to hide the taste the best. I mix my jello per the box instructions for ➡️ Jigglers. I mix 2 large packets with 5 cups boiling water and throw all that into my mixing bowl and let the mixer do the work for me. Then I count out the desired amount of scoops into a smaller bowl and slowly pour that into the mixing bowl. I’ve added a picture of the finished product (minus today’s nibbles). Here’s the breakdown of scoops per box for me (again, I’m doing double what is recommended, but it seems to be working).2-8.5 ounce boxes of jello5 Cups boiling water – Do not add anymore water to this. It will be a consistency of something between jello jigglers and regular jello.54 scoops of collagenMix with mixer until very well blended. The longer the better. I think I left mine going for 5 minutes or more.Place in fridge to cool~ I know that I need 2 ounces of Jello per day to get my 4 scoops in. If you don’t take that much per day than only scoop out 1 ounce. That would be the equivalent of 2 scoops of collagen. I finish it off with my big tumbler of water.And if anyone is curious as to how I came up with this…A few months back I started experimenting with jello and collagen. I needed a good measuring system to start with. I grabbed my baby food silicone molds (2 ounces per cup when full) and went from there. I have 3 of these molds so I tried out a few different methods. 2 scoops per 1 ounce seemed to work the best. When the jello is mixed with 5 cups of water it comes out to just about 54 ounces of liquid. Give or take a bit.Hope this helps :)UPDATE October 5, 2020:After receiving and using my 2nd container for the last couple weeks I have noticed that this batch does not have the same smell or taste as the first container did. This container appears to have no taste or smell like the first container did. It also dissolves way more easily. I noticed other reviews that have mentioned similar differences and I’m just wondering if the quality control is just not there. This batch is still helping with my hair regrowth, but I am struggling to figure out why such a huge difference in the 2 containers. Still going to continue using it because it is helping so much. Just baffled at the differences between batches.****************************************************I started Vital Proteins a couple months ago after being at my wits end with postpartum hair loss. I was losing hair at an alarming rate. My hair girl was concerned about all the bald patches and thinning I was experiencing. We talked about different things I could try, but nothing seemed to help with regrowth. I simply was not seeing any regrowth at 6 month postpartum. Just more loss.I had already been looking at this product and another one for a few months, but wasn’t completely sold on either one. I was skeptical. Then I found out that my nutritionist uses this product. At that moment I took the plunge and ordered my first container.Within 1 week…gonna say this again…ONE WEEK, I had new hair growth!! I thought it was a fluke. I thought there was no possible way. So I stopped for a week and restarted the next week. Sure enough, in the week that I didn’t take any vital proteins the hair growth stopped. Once I started it back up the regrowth started growing again. I was still in shock over this. I finished my first container and ordered a second.I now have 3 very distinct growth spurt layers and it looks like I have another new layer starting! My hair girl wanted to know what I had done because she in 5 weeks in between cuts, I not only had new crazy amounts of growth, but my bald patches were filling in. She wanted to know what I had done to get regrowth that fast. She is going to recommend this product to a few of her other clients that are experiencing the same postpartum hair loss.Now, for the nuts and bolts of this stuff.No. You will not receive a full container. It’s sold by weight, not volume. But taking 1 scoop a day it will last about 2 months. I take 2 scopes per day and it lasts about a month.It claims to be odorless, colorless and tasteless. I am super sensitive to smells and tastes. I cannot stand the smell or taste of this stuff. However, I also take 2 scoops at a time per day. So mine is a little stronger. I think that’s why it’s working so well. However, if you notice in the picture I provided you will see how I get this stuff down. I use water and Mio. Makes this stuff taste like melted jello. It’s the only way I can take it. Even with this though I sometimes have a difficult time. But the results are totally worth it!!It is sticky. It took me a time or 2 before I figured out that this stuff has serious sticky factor.DO NOT SHAKE!!! The directions say to MIX well. Not shake. You shake this stuff up and you’re gonna end up with clumps. I use a whisk and mix it like you would jello. Mix it and you will not have any issues. Shake it or dump it too fast into the liquid and you will get clumps. It’s not rocket science.Will I recommend this to every single person I know, YES! Absolutely yes!!
This collagen powder is decent. It says unflavored but I do detect a slight flavor and scent. I first tried mixing it in with my greens powder to get all my powder supplements out of the way at once. It didn’t mix well, the greens liquid was cold so it gathered on the bottom (just some not all) and left stringy white bits in the liquid. Not the most visually appealing but the coconut flavor of my greens masked the slight flavor/scent some. I also tried it in cold gatorade, same effect. Today, I tried mixing it in with my coffee. It blended in best with the hot liquid so I’ll keep that in mind even though I don’t like the subtle flavor/scent change to my coffee. Overall, I am happy with the product and will continue to use and post a follow up for any noticeable changes in hair, nails, skin etc.UPDATE: I wanted to write a quick update. I found that if I have my milk frother running and then add in the collagen powder to my water and greens it blends in perfectly. No clumps etc. Also, I am already noticing an improvement in my knee joints which I did not expect but am very happy about.
So I wanted to wait a while to write a review, this way I could speak about this products benefits.I’ve been using this product for 3 months now – I started with the smaller sized container to get a good test run first. I do a lot of research on the products I put into my body, and this company checked out okay with what I had originially read. So quality, check.My first opinion with this product was the taste – when added to tea, if taken as suggested (2 scoops) you can definitely tell there is a taste. It is a mild taste, but a taste nonetheless. But it dissolved right into the hot liquid without any problems, did not change the color of the tea at all.So I decided to change my doseage – I put 1 scoop into coffee (no taste/no color change as I drink my coffee black) and then 1 scoop at night when I drink my post-workout (from another company). No further taste issues.What changes have I experienced:My hair is definitely growing quicker than before, but not incredibly speedy – so don’t set yourself up for that expectation. My hair and nails are definitely stronger (which I needed after having a gel manicure twice a month for the last two years)My skin – definite improvement. I still get blemishes, that’s just how my chemistry goes, but I’ve definitely noticed a glow, not over-oily etc.Also, I just overall feel better.So, if you’re like me and read every review before purchasing a product, I hope this review serves you well. If you’re curious, but don’t want to commit to the larger container, get the smaller size and give it a test-run. I saw benefits after one month, combined with a moderately healthy diet (and drink drink drink your water!!), and the only thing I changed about my routine is adding a scoop of this powder to my coffee/shake. If you do not choose this product, buyer beware – check ALL the labels before purchasing.Cheers!
I have been very happy with this product – the first difference I felt after a few weeks was that it helped me sleep. It contains glycine and if you look online there is research that shows that helps with sleep. I sleep for longer periods and if I wake up at night I can fall back to sleep quickly which has made a big difference in my general well being. Then after about six weeks my knees started to feel better which I think was the collagen, and now after a few months my hair is more shiny – all good things!It does have a taste – it isn’t strong but I tried it with plain water and it needs some flavor to cover the taste. I don’t want to add it to my coffee, and like drinking it cold. I found that flavored carbonated water like LaCroix is just enough to cover the taste, but it does not dissolve quickly in cold liquid. I was mixing it and leaving it sit on the counter until the lumps were gone, which could take as long as an hour. Some of the photos I have seen in the comments show lumps and I think they didn’t let it sit long enough to dissolve.I finally came up with a method to mix it quickly and I wanted to share it. What works for me is: (1) Pour a small amount of the cold flavored water into a glass – maybe 2 oz. (2) Put that in the microwave and heat it until it is hot – about 20 – 30 seconds. (3) Sprinkle two scoops of the Vital Proteins into the small amount of hot liquid and stir it until it dissolves. It will dissolve quickly without lumps when it is hot. (4) Pour in the rest of the cold flavored water in the glass with the already dissolved collagen solution and mix that. If I want it colder I put in an ice cube. This would work for any cold liquid, you could add juice as well. Basically, the idea is to dissolve the Vital Proteins in a small amount of hot liquid first and then add the cold liquid to that solution. Hope this is helpful!
I’m currently in my 40s and I’ve been working out for a while. Elbow joint pains and thinning of hair comes with aging. Ever since I’ve been taking Vital Proteins Collagen, my joint pains have substantially subsided and my hair looks healthier too. You can feel the benefits of it after 3 to 4 days of taking it, I would suggest 2 soops per day. There are no downside or side effects so far. Mine does not come with any flavor, it’s plain and with simple ingredients which I definitely prefer. I’m not sure what’s going to happen or the effects of it if I stop taking it…. I will definitely update my reviews when I do.
I’ve been using Vital proteins collagen for the last three years since I had stomach surgery and it is my favorite and believe me, I have tried many of them. I put it in my coffee in the morning and there’s no change in taste and if I have 2 cups of coffee, I’m getting a huge amount of the proteins that would be normally be hard for me to acquire.
