    Has anyone had any experience with this supplement ?

    My wife has bought some on a recommendation from a friend. I have just tried a tablespoon in a hot drink for the first time. This supplement looks really interesting.

    I think Ray recommends increasing gelatine consumption, so i am thinking this may be a good alternative to actual gelatine.

    I am interested in the effect this will have on skin and hair health. It will be interesting to see if anything positive comes from this supplement.

    I will try update this thread with any positive/negative effects i notice over the next few weeks.

    I will mention now that my nails have suddenly started growing like crazy on my hands (not so much the feet). I have recently started to use a multivitamin and mineral made by Biocare.

    This is the product:BioCare Adult Multivitamins and Minerals 90 Capsules

    Just thought i would mention this because i know the collagen may also make the nails grow well.

    I'm trialing the collagen from peptan. Gelatin and glycine didn't work.
    At 2.5 gr with meals, I'm aching from everywhere, my muscles, my joints. Strong detox symptoms! I saw a vague claim it can increase calcium levels so it must be true.

    High level of calcium

    Collagen supplements may increase the level of calcium inside the body, leading to possible nausea, vomiting, muscles aches and pain in the joints, fatigue or an irregular heartbeat, etc.

    I stopped but it messed me up pretty bad. I have awful cramps and tensions in the torso and neck, sinus inflammation, headache.
