The below 1-star review is nonsense
The below 1-star review is nonsense (maybe written by a competitor?). Collagen binds to food, particularly protein, rendering it basically unabsorbable. That is why you are supposed to take it away from food. This is a great supplement I have been taking for a year, and is a very good $ value.
There are better collagens on the market
To start, the manufacturer recommends taking this supplement on an empty stomach,30 minutes before a meal. BUT, it goes on to say not to take it within an hour of a protein supplement. Most meals contain protein. Your body doesn’t know the difference between protein, and a protein supplement. This means you need to take this supplement 30 minutes before a meal with no protein. Way to complicated for a daily supplement.
