    Somewhere I read that taking collagen does basically the same thing as taking gelatin. (non Peat source). Since powdered collagen is a lot easier to mix into things - smoothies, coffee, baked goods, etc., I wanted to know if it is considered to be just as good as gelatin?

    Or does gelatin have health benefits that collagen by itself doesn't?

    Thank you

    "Gelatin is simply the cooked form of collagen, and it's one of the best and most convenient ways to ingest the important amino acids in collagen. Collagen hydrolysate (sometimes called hydrolyzed collagen) is gelatin that's been processed more intensively to break up the proteins into smaller bits."

    Is collagen as good as gelatin? I already have a lot of collagen...Should I buy gelatin too? Or does collagen supply the same level of goodness that gelatin does?
