Great Lakes Collagen Peptides (Green Can)

Hot or cold liquid soluble for use in cold beverages or recipes. Hydrolysed Collagen is the unique combination of amino acids in concentrated levels. Collagen contains amino acid such as glycine, lysine and proline, which are important amino acids and can be used by the body to build connective tissue structures to support the functions of the cells.

$49 and as low as $44.10 per can with a 3x pack.

The Great Lakes Gelatine Company's cattle are grass fed and slaughtered in Argentina and Brazil which is controlled by their respective Department of Agriculture. These countries have the same type of rigourous tests and inspections as the United States. Beef hides are the only product used to manufacture gelatine in these countries.

  • 1. Our Gelatin and Hydrolysate contains no MSG.

    Some believe that Glutamic acid or Mono sodium glutamate is contained in gelatin. This is simply not the case.

    2. Our products are all gluten free.

    Gelatin and related products from Great lakes Gelatin are totally free from gluten. Glutens are the proteins found in wheat, barley and rye flours (all Triticeae plants). Wheat glutens are a problem for a small group of individuals who have allergies to these proteins (primarily for persons suffering from celiac disease). Glutens are plant derived proteins. Gelatin is produced entirely from animals and contains absolutely no gluten.

    3. How much should I take?

    We recommend one to two tablespoons per day depending on your diet, activity level and need. One tablespoon in the morning and one later in the day is best. Any excess protein will simply flush out of the body without any issues to you.

    4. How should I take it?

    Because it can be mixed into hot or cold foods, you can mix it in drinks, cereals, oatmeal, or any other foods that you regularly enjoy. Taking it for six to eight weeks should begin to show improvement.

    5. Heavy Metals Statement

    Great Lakes Gelatin shares the concerns our customers have about heavy metals in the food that they consume. In response to misinformation found on the internet, Great Lakes Gelatin wants to clarify how we test for arsenic and other heavy metal impurities. Our specification limit for arsenic is below <0.25 parts per million. This¬†is based¬†on regulatory limits set by government agencies at the time of manufacture.¬†It is a¬†mistake¬†to assume that the specification maximum is the amount present¬†in our¬†gelatine.¬†It is difficult to test for such low levels of possible impurities. The analytical testing results for arsenic are ‚Äúbelow detection limits‚ÄĚ. This means that the level is below the sensitivity of the test to quantify a result.

  • Ray Peat:For years I hadn't slept through a whole night without waking, and I was in the habit of having some juice or a little thyroid to help me go back to sleep. The first time I had several grams of gelatin just before bedtime, I slept without interruption for about 9 hours. I mentioned this effect to some friends, and later they told me that friends and relatives of theirs had recovered from long-standing pain problems (arthritic and rheumatic and possibly neurological) in just a few days after taking 10 or 15 grams of gelatin each day.

Great for nails

This product dissolves much better than other collagen powders I have used. At first I could detect a very slight taste but now I am accustomed to it and can’t taste anything whatsoever (I mix with herbal teas). When I use this consistently I see a very noticeable difference in the quality of my nails - they grow rapidly and are stronger. I haven’t seen a discernible difference with my hair or skin, but they are already normal. I have also noticed that my recurring wrist pain has gone away.


Not sweet, good flavour, ticks all the nutritional boxes. Love it!

Top quality product is a daily must for me

Love and highly recommend this product as it's an amazing quality collagen. It hydrolysed, easily dissolves in hot or cold liquid, can't taste it so can blend in pretty much anything, and provides all the great benefits of hydrolysed collagen.

Hydrolyzed Collagen

I have been consuming hydrolyzed collagen since a few months ago, and it has been amazing to skin and hair. The best one I have tried so far!!! Thank you

Great Lakes collagen peptides

Arrived quickly. Absolutely no taste whatsoever which is great. I don’t even know it’s in my smoothie which is exactly what I wanted.

I’ll definitely be repurchasing
