Saved me from knee surgery

Love, love, love this product. Resisted at first because of the cost, but decided it would be worth it if I could bring my knee cartilage back. It took a good four or five months, but it's really happening. My doctor who said this would be impossible shakes his head in disbelief. He thinks it must be spontaneous regeneration! Wish it could have happened even sooner, but along the way got nicer skin and better nails.


Amazing Product!

I’ve been using this cartilage collagen on/off for nearly two years now. I’ve only gone off when it’s out of stock. I also use the collagen peptides and love both products. This one was a life saver for me. In May of 2016, I fell and injured my left rist and left knee tearing cartilage & ligaments in both areas. My orthopedic surgeon gave me a steroid shot in my rist and an anti-inflammatory med for the knee pain. While my knee pain was very minimal during the day, it was so bad at night I couldn’t sleep much at all and was slowly getting quite exhausted for daily activities. After awhile the steroid shot wore off as well and then that pain was back in full force. I was already using the peptides, so Instead of going back for another steroid shot for my rist and an MRI for my knee, I decided to try this cartilage collagen product first. The results were swift and amazing! In about a month or two my knee & rist pain was completely gone. I have been pain free ever since, even when this product’s been temporarily out of stock. I Highly recommend trying this product! As long as this is available I will NEVER stop using it. At 55 years old I need all the help I can get to stay strong and agile!


Better skin

I ordered the cartilage collagen a little bit ago, but it sat there for a while before I really started using it. I intended to use this product for post-workout recovery, however, it has served me with another purpose. I have a mild case of dermatitis around the creases of my nose. I noticed that once I started taking the cartilage collagen, the redness and scaling went away. I am not a doctor, but I did a little research on the amino acids in the product. It turns out most of them are very beneficial for skin hydration and pH levels. I have tried so many topical products (both chemical and natural) that did not work so I am extremely glad this product had a surprise side effect!

Cartilage collagen

Not sure what's going on. I take half the recommended dose and my face gets flush and I itch. Does not seem that there would be anything in it to cause an allergic reaction. I had to stop taking it.

Excellent Type 2 Collagen

I started using this product 2 years ago when I tore my ACL and elected not to have it surgically repaired. It was fast acting and allowed me to successfully rehab my knee without the surgery. I continue to use the Cartilage Collagen to this day for joint maintenance.

I paid for next day because I was leaving home for 4 weeks. I did not recieve the shipment in time. The shipping charge was fixed and thank you very much for that. However the proteins are sitting at home and I have not been able to use them as I am out of town.

Cartilage Collagen

The company was recommended by a doctor because of its high standards in ingredients. Ordering from Vital Proteins was easy. Delivery was fast. I will use them again and recommend them to friends.
