I've taken it every day for 3 years, since before I knew I had Lyme. I'm a marathon runner and the collagen definitely helps -- it healed the tendonitis I had in my foot (I had tried everything, I started using collagen on a whim and after a month the pain was gone).

There have been studies done that it helps heal tendons, but I'm too lazy to link them. A lot of runners I know take it. I use the Great Lakes brand, which is what Buhner recommends. Joint pain is the one Lyme symptom I never had.

I used to be able to take collagen peptides in the form of a protein shake. Now it causes me so much pain. I think it is due to my oxalate problem.

So if it causes something of yours to get worse consider oxalates.

I find that a beef chuck roast has a nice amount of connective tissue / collagen with the healing fat on it, to complement the protein with all the other nutrients as well. I asked for it untrimmed and untied and just slow roast it at 250 degrees until its fall apart tender.

One thing to consider with both collagen powder and whey powder -- and some other protein powders as well . . . just like other highly processed foods . .

is that while they may not trigger a spike in glucose, they can trigger a spike in insulin from the sudden rush of that powder and that insulin - in excess, in a flood so to speak - can cause weight gain and also damage in the body / nerve endings in various ways - especially with insulin resistance which approx. 75% of the population has.

The whole food source does not do that as it's digested and absorbed more slowly.

And, generally, meat and animal fats do not spike high glucose or insulin, unlike any processed foods, which all the powders are - they are highly processed and most often just not something the body knows what to do with.

Plant powders can cause even higher spikes in both glucose and insulin, too, due to their carbohydrate nature and there immediate absorption and rush.

They definitely helped to reduce the inflammation in my joints. Once you get to a certain age you realize you can't do as many things as you used to without complaining about joint pain or anything similar, haha. I've also heard about collagen peptides from a co-worker who always struggled with this kind of pain. I was surprised to see that they're actually working, I honestly thought he was kidding at first. You could try them too if the pain is unbearable and persistent. They might do wonders for you as well.
