I started collagen peptides in an effort to manage conditions related to my perimenopause – namely, unusually dry eyes and skin (I moisturize every day), and joint pain. Because it’s also been attributed to supporting hair growth and overall hair health, I thought it wouldn’t hurt as a “booster” for the hair vitamins I was taking.
After reading numerous user reviews on Amazon, I decided to go with the most and best-rated product, which was Live Conscious Collagen Peptides for Hair, Skin, Nail & Joint Support (it was neck-and-neck between Live Conscious and Vital Proteins). The daily suggested use is 11 grams of powder (it comes with a pre-measured scooper) mixed with your favorite hot or cold beverage. Most days I added a scoop to my water bottle and shook vigorously before drinking. While the powder is “unflavored” there is a very faint earthy taste, but it was not off-putting enough for me to avoid it. A couple of times I added it to my coffee; while that masked the earthy aftertaste, it did not dissolve as well with a vigorous stir (vs. a shake) and left some small clumps that had to be swallowed whole.
Overall, I’ve been pretty impressed with the effects of the collagen powder. Even though the information on the effects of collagen suggest it can take 6-12 weeks before you notice any improvements, after about three weeks I noticed that the skin on my face was much clearer and brighter, and felt smoother to the touch. After six weeks, I also noticed that I have less joint pain at the end of the day or following a workout.
