Liked it and it works, but went for a cheaper option after awhile

Didn't notice any 'graininess' that other reviews refer to. Tried in cold water, smoothies, and coffee - results:
- I could taste it in the water and coffee, but obviously dissolves faster in the coffee
- Honestly, tastes like you had bone broth in a mug, lightly washed that mug, and then put [whatever you're currently drinking] in it. Not a big deal for me personally
- Can't taste it in a smoothie, which is my frequent preference nowadays, just blend it up really well or you can have pockets of slimy consistency from it connecting with too little liquid
As for the benefits of collagen itself, I bought it mainly to recover from knee & joint pain after playing competitive soccer each week. That problem is definitely taken care of with this in my diet. Just a scoop in a glass of water or milk after my games, and I'm good the next morning. I also noticed my fingernails growing faster and a little bit stronger when I was using it consistently. But that means everyday. Lastly, I recommend easing any collagen into your diet over time if you have a sensitive system - try a half scoop every other day for a week or so. It can affect your digestion and potentially cause stomach issues (that's ANY collagen, not specific to this brand).
