Collagen Gels The Same As Protein?

I am on a student budget so I just bought this:  http://billbeautyshop.com/health-supplements/beauty-anti-aging-support/8249.html


 


I know the quality isn't close to Dave's but is at least the right type of thing?  


 


I couldn't find any products with the word "protein" anywhere. I went to GNC, Healthy Planet, and even Walmart and Bulk Barn.

    Why didn't you buy this?

    I can't help you if I don't know what is in it. It's strange that the website doesn't show anything.


  • definitely 2nd J-Rocks suggestion. I've been using Great Lakes Collagen for years. Great stuff....every bit as good as Bulletproof brand in my opinion. The product doesn't need to say "protein" to be what you're looking for. 


     


    I would be highly suspect of that stuff you bought. Don't see it as being hydrolyzed (which makes the collagen more assimilable). and I would definitely wonder about the "added nutrients". Also looks like the box says softgels which strikes me as an interesting form for collagen to come it...not sure why they'd do that.


     


    Anyway...get yourself some Great Lakes. and make sure it's the green can; Collagen Hydrolysate and not the red one...which is gelatin ...you'd end up with a lumpy mess in your coffee....or coffee jello...not sure which would be worse.

  • Hi guys. Thanks for replies.  The product I bought IS "hydrolyzed fish collagen". It says so on the website, I don't understand how neither of you saw it, no offense. 


     


    I live in Toronto and with shipping, exchange rate. and just the base price, the Great Lakes version you suggested comes to double the price. 


     


    I am just asking if it is the right type of supplement that was suggested in the BPD Book...as it does not say "protein" on it, like Dave's and the Great Lakes brand you both use :)

    When I clicked on the nutritional info tab, it wouldn't open up. Now it does. Not sure how it would compare to Bulletproof or Great Lakes collagen, but you have to take a lot of these to equal one serving of Great Lakes. 1 tablespoons of Great Lakes has 6g of collagen. You'd have to take 30 of these to get 6g. And I don't know how the fish was sourced. Have you checked into this? https://www.amazon.ca/Great-Lakes-Collagen-Hydrolysate-16-Ounce/dp/B005KG7EDU Doesn't this qualify for free shipping?
