I've been taking collagen for over a year now. I was using another brand but hated how huge the pills were and that I had to take 6 of them each day, and I ended up skipping it more often than not. I was referred by my Dr. to this line and LOVE the results-skin is clear and vibrant, hair and nails are strong and growing like crazy and I know the effects of the collagen are happening below the surface too which is super important! I have a sensitive stomach and this doesn't bother me-another plus! I don't wake up as creaky and sore which I am sure is due to the supplement-huge bonus! Try this-you will be thrilled with the results!
I buy a ton on Amazon but very rarely review items unless they are exceptional - either exceptionally good or bad. This item, and brand, is definitely the former. I have been an athlete my entire life and enjoy beating the heck out of my body through a variety of sports and activities. Based on the advice of my doctor, around the age of 40, I began taking collagen supplements - to combat the aforementioned wear and tear I inflict on myself, support joint health, muscle growth, and heart function. I really wish I had started taking collagen supplements much earlier in my life, the benefits are real. I have used many different brands but have never been fully satisfied until I stumbled across Amen based on a recommendation from a friend. This product is easy to digest, I have a sensitive stomach, and highly effective. Bottom line....it’s simply better than any competitive product I’ve tried - and there have been many. Highly recommended.
I started taking these 3 weeks ago in conjunction with the brand's SBO Probiotics. I thought collagen would be a good thing to take as I get older as it's supposed to help with heart health, muscle mass, and skin texture. I do think my skin seems more supple than before, but I think it will only improve with more time taking them. One thing I have definitely noticed is deeper and longer sleep. I take the supplements around dinner time and once I go to bed, I sleep through the night without waking up straight up to my alarm. This is a definite improvement from before!
This is my first review on Amazon. Loved how easy and small these pills are compared to the regular collagen pills and you don't need to take 6 of them! Got motivated to leave a review since I got a glimpse of a video my 6yo daughter shot of me over the weekend. Despite her lacking camera skills and the most unflattering angles she took the video from, my naked skin was so radiant in the video I myself took a double take and wondered if I put on any make up (no i didn't). I've been taking it with the codeage life supplement along with the collagens on empty stomach before bed time and I can see sun spots from my reckless years with no sunscreen fading away in the past ONE month! I had good skin to start with and I've been getting twice as many people commenting on my my "natural glow" recently...for that, i'll write my first amazon review.
My hair, skin, and nails have all been getting compliments - especially my skin. After visiting my family in Argentina whose diet includes meat, starches, and sugar, I came back with such brittle nails! So this definitely helped with getting them back on track. As for my joints, I have a tricky wrist and hips. My hips especially hurt after work outs and in the morning, waking up, but this has helped tremendously with the pain. I've also been adding turmeric and pepper to my food and juices for the inflammation. It is three pills, but it's a multi-collagen with Vitamic C and Hyaluronic Acid, so I'm down with it. Since I'm not used to taking pills regularly, I bought a pill organizer, and use it for my two Amen products: the collagen and their SBO Probiotic, which I also love. I definitely recommend! Thank you, Amen!!
I've taken collagen before, but quit. Pills too big, and/or couldn't see any change . . . Amen is a very good brand. I first noticed how easy they were to take. And after a few weeks, I began to notice a definite improvement in my joints. What surprised me most was a split nail on my left index finger that appeared to have been damaged underneath, before it grew out. In other words, the nail was growing out with a barely discernable split down the middle. Once it was grown past the finger, it was necessary to keep it trimmed as close as possible. After a decade, is Amen's Collagen all I needed? I'm thrilled.
My nails have become very brittle over time, since my job consists of using my hands and washing them a lot. So a friend suggested that I try these pills, I’ve always been a skeptic since I’ve tried biotin pills in the past without much success. I do believe the hyaluronic acid and other ingredients synergistically worked together to create and even better effect. I go on a lot of hikes, so I’ve been very sore from my knees lately, but ever since I began taking this supplement I don’t quite feel as sore after my hikes and my hair and nails feel a lot healthier. I can’t wait to finish my current bottle so I can re-purchase the product again!
I’ve been taking this product for about one month now and, although I know prolonged use will help me see more benefits, I can tell a difference in my skin and overall health. I have a chronic uterine condition that is forcing me to decide whether or not to have a hysterectomy. :( I read that collagen helps connective tissue that runs throughout our bodies and was referred to this product to see if it would help. While I am not in the clear of avoiding a hysterectomy, I have seen an improved difference in the amount of pain I’ve experienced during my last two cycles. (Yes - I’ve had two in the last month.) I didn’t have to go to the ER last cycle because of the severe pain causing cyclical vomiting. I’m eager to see how prolonged use of this product will affect my uterine health!
I've been looking for a vegan collagen that actually works for SO long. All my friends use bone broth/ animal based collagens and although I am vegetarian, not vegan, it totally grosses me out. Before this I was just taking hylauronic acid pills and truly wasn't noticing any difference after months so decided to give up. I was recommended these by a friend and I'm so happy with the results. My hair, skin and nails feel super healthy, especially noticed the difference in my skin. Also it doesn't need to be stored in the fridge so I've been travelling with it. If you're vegan or just totally grossed out by the idea of animal based collagen I can vouch that this is ethical and ACTUALLY works. I'm used it for 2 months and saw a difference in the first 3 weeks.
This is a great multi-collagen supplement. I prefer the multi-collagen supplements to those that are just bovine, chicken or marine because they are more complete. I love that this one also has hyaluronic acid in it. HA helps promote the body to create it's own collagen. I also like that this one doesn't have any other ingredients. Other products usually have unnecessary fillers that can be detrimental. The only thing is that I do wish it was organic.
