I’m really glad NZ Protein started selling collagen powder. I had a bad experience buying collagen from another brand where I reacted badly to it. I know these guys sell nothing but high quality, good value products, so it gave me the confidence to try collagen again. I get the unflavoured one and mix it into my cup of tea or smoothie and can’t taste a thing. I’ve been using it consistently for about 2 months now and didn’t expect to notice any differences yet, but I have noticed that my nails are much stronger. I’ve always had weak nails, they break/bend/split on the daily. I had to cut my nails the other day for no reason other than they were too long and getting annoying - I can’t remember the last time I had a full set of finger nails that needed cutting. Noticing differences like this already gives me even more confidence in what the collagen will be doing for my joints and the rest of my body. Ordered another tub recently, and even with the shipping delays from lockdown, I ordered it in the afternoon and it arrived at my door 7am the next morning. Just outstanding all round products, prices and customer service - couldn’t recommend enough
Loved the lime flavor and now berry. Mixes well and tastes good, not super intense or sweet, kinda like flavored water.
I have only used this for a week, but i brought the plain and its the 1st time i have had one gthat really does have no taste so its great in my smoothies or just in water. looking forward to seeing the results
Super quick delivery, great service and communication :) great product!
Best value I have found in NZ, 5/5 recommend
Good way to get collagen as there no yucky taste to it, I used it mixed into cereal and baking so far, but it would be great addition to a smoothie also.
Mixes well, good value but will probably go for unfavoures next time as a little too sweet for me but otherwise great
I honestly don’t know if it’s working - just taking it.
Great tasting, mixes easy
Awesum stuff... will be putting in another order for it soon.. thank u
This is delicious! So impressed with the flavour and it mixes easily. Have just been taking it for a couple of days but looking forward to the results.
Great product! I chose the unflavored Collagen and it's perfect to put into my NZ Protein shakes as you dont even notice it's in there. Also quick shipping even in lockdown!
Easy mixing, very digestible,good product
Amazing product I got the no flavor did dissolve in seconds no lumps or clumps
Love this product, my hair has been thinning from stress over the past year and after taking it for a couple of months I've noticed my hair growing back thicker, my skin is more plump, and my nails are stronger. Wouldn't be without it now!
Easy to dissolve, I use plain in my porridge and my daughter uses the berry fruit flavour in her morning smoothie.
Helps with my sleep
Very happy with the unflavoured collagen. Dissolves easily in both hot and cold water.
Thanks for the super quick delivery during lockdown!
The unflavoured product tastes mildly like lamb shanks - yummy!
I love the taste when mixed with cold water!
I have been taking your product for almost a month now, I still have wrinkles, and sore knees, but I like to believe at least the knees will improve. I have seen some changes in my digestion, and I intend to continue to take your product.
I do have question concerning other supplements I am taking, I have been taking calcium for 40 years (I have good bones!), also MSM for a few years which I find the most effective for my joint pain, and a probiotic, can I faze any of these suppliments out?
Looking forward to your response.
The Collagen Hydrolysed mixes well with my protein powder, and there is no real taste. I am sleeping better since taking it, so I guess it is helping with that. Seems like a good product.
I have been using Collagen for a couple of years. I have the most unbelievably strong nails and both my hair and nails grow really fast. I guess it must helping in the rest of my body as well!!
Great service from NZ Protein- order early in the morning, receive it in the afternoon!!
Love this product and love love love the NZ protein team
Tastes great and mixes really well
Service is fantastic, unfortunately I find this flavour too sweet for me and it doesn't dissolve as easy as the non flavour one. I will be going back to that once I have finished this lot. NZPROTEIN REPLY: use more water. It will dissolve within minutes
Unflavoured is the way to go! We add it to our smoothies or just to a glass of water, having no flavour at all you can add it to anything. Great value!
The artificial sweetener in this flavour is a bit overdone, but I find that one scoop of this with one scoop of the unflavoured variety counters this and is very pleasant. I have not used it long enough to determine any benefit to skin, nails and joints, but the product dissolves quite well in soda water, and is easy to use. The pin hole in the base of the scoop is rather annoying, as powder does spill through it, even being careful.
This is great. Helps make up my protein macros but most importantly my skin condition feels more plump and general really good. My skin is shiny and brighter. It dissolves easy enough in cold and hot drinks. Has no taste if you buy the unflavoured. I add it to food that I am cooking in batches. Quick postage.
Love the product and the service. I have seen quite an improvement in my skin and hair. This is my 3rd jar!
Amazing affordable product
Great product, sleeping well. now,. Heath has improved. Great service, excellent response and delivery. Thank you
Such an affordable great quality collagen! Unflavored mixes in with my morning coffee perfectly, no texture or taste at all. I will be buying this regularly.
Love this product, been using it for almost a year now. Lots of people comment about my skin looking so health. I?m positive it?s helped with my shoulder surgery recovery. Highly recommended, will continue to use.
I was disappointed, it's very sweet. I thought I was ordering the plain one so I could put it in my coffee. NZPROTEIN REPLY: it's made to go in a drink bottle and be sipped. You can select the flavour that you want on the product page...the unflavoured is listed there...
Cant see my wrinkles disappearing just yet though....hehe
have been taking this for a couple of months now and finally have fingernails that dont split or fray and grow so long too!. so happy :-)
1st time I've tried a flavored Collagen. Got the Citrus Blast - great flavor, mixes really well. Impressed!
A very satisfyed and happy client. No more pain in my knees ,so i get a good night's sleep
Great collagen powder -mixes easily, no taste and not gritty. Good price and service and delivery from NZ Protein is excellent.
Recently added this supplement for sleep support and to assist in recovery during this offseason due to intense progressive overload training program.
just started taking it so not sure on my performance side of things
Fantastic company to deal with, fantastic product thank you so much
Great product, exceptional delivery and price very competitive compared to others. Highly recommended.
great product, mixes really easily into my drinks and my coffee and doesnt affect taste
Great service, very quick and luv your products
Great product, tastes great. Makes drinking more water easy.
This is the second container I?v order, I?ve found it has plump my skin up.
Fabulous service quick postage Great product and excellent packaging reliable company.
Great product. I am sensitive to most protein powders, but this one in unflavored I can tolerate. It also does not overwhelm my smoothies with favouring so I can taste the fruits and veggies.
Great product at a decent price. Fast delivery too. I'll be ordering more soon!
So far I feel like my knees are less achy, particularly after exercise. Still early days, but I would recommend everyone add some into their diets. I add to my morning coffee and then to other meals before I eat (unflavoured only!).
Pretty much unflavoured, mixes in well with everything I?ve tried so far!
Great product. Tasteless and dissolves well.
Bit too early to review but great for putting in my drinks as the powder has no flavour what so ever so will give it a good amount of time to see if it works
Very good for my Arthritis compared to all other rubbish on the MARKET that doesn't do what it says it will do.
Also sleeping a lot better.
its great, stronger nails and thicker hair
I use this Collagen because of low blood sugar issues which are tied up with my Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. I mix it with juice and natural salt to sustain me through a game of golf, and also before bed to prevent me waking up about 2 a.m. with a pounding heart as Cortisol levels rise to compensate for low blood sugar. You only need a small amount at bedtime - 100 ml juice, 1/8 tspn ground natural salt and 1/2 tspn Collagen. It works a treat. Thanks to NZ Protein for a great product and an extremely fast delivery service.
Protein OLA is a must with Yogurt, fruit & LSA .
Collagen is great as a thirst quench
Another yummy product
I am a 73 year old arthritic female with inflamed, rickety joints, super sensitive tummy & gut, and just to add to my woes, unhappy weepy eyes!! Nothing life threatening here, but definitely inhibiting what I thought would be a rich & vibrant retirement. In a frustrated bid to help myself, I stumbled across this NZ made Hydrolysed Collagen powder, which I have been trialing for almost 3 weeks
The first thing to happen was that I slept such blissfully full nights, and my energy level zoomed up, which meant that my inclination to move more increased!
Then I noticed that much of the inflammation around my knees and ankles was reducing!!
My digestive system seems far calmer, less aggravated, and is working better!!
And my incredibly dried out old skin has started to soften!!!
An incredible domino effect, for sure!!
So with careful diet, regular exercise and this Hydrolysed Collagen powder, my body works much better, and mentally I feel far more positive.
All I can say is that this product is definitely worth trialing!!
Good product - my age is advancing and my joints, skin etc need all the help they can get. Work with a Personal Trainer so need to be on good form every time.
NZ Protein give the very best service - order one morning, get product the next morning - FABULOUS!!!
Have only been using for a week. love that it has not taste, mixes well into my water.
tastes great so hope it does what it says
This is the third type of collagen I have tried. All seem effective (fixed my water and pain on my knee as a result of arthritis). The NZProtein product is the right granulation size (one other brand was ground too finely and thus difficult to handle).
The NZProtein product dissolves well in my morning porridge and is tasteless.
Excellent. It also comes in effective packaging and the price is excellent especially when a double pack is ordered. Love the free delivery which also was very fast.
I haven?t decided yet. I?ve got my husband and son in law on it . The jury is still out . After we?ve taken a container of it I?ll know more . We?ll see how our joints are then. So far I would say my joints are less sore, more supple and as I say they are a work in progress
refreshing booster for me.
I use this every day. I prefer non flavoured as then it can be added to anything I am eating or drinking and dissolves well too. I have purchased this a number of times. Seriously fast postage too. Great company to deal with!!!
Have only just started using so you to see if it makes any difference but good value for money compared to other products out there!
Great product. WOULD give 5 stars if the scoop didn't have silly holes in it!!
Mixes well, only been taking for a couple of days but hopefully I'll feel a difference.
Great product! Tastes good too. I've only just started using it, so hoping to see or feel some results soon.
Nice tasting ,easy to drink .Dont think it?s helped my joints as yet but too soon to tell. I have only had it a week. Too soon ?
The Collagen is easy to mix and tasteless. I add it to my coffee for the benefits and it does not alter the taste at all. Love it.
Fantastic product thank you
Great product. Great value
I have been using one scoop of collagen in one glass, not sure if i need to put more in my smoothie, loving the taste, and at the age of 67 i am sure my bones and joints will be loving it, i no longer have stiffness in my hands....early days.
I buy the tasteless one and add it to my smoothies, tea and coffee I can honestly say that it does not alter the taste of my drink. The product is delivered within a couple of days. I believe that the product does exactly what is stated on its label. I have noticed that my finger nails are quite hard, I have reordered as very pleased with results..
Mixes well in shakes and smoothies. I use the unflavoured type to reduce the extra ingredients. I have issues tolerating dairy and legumes, so this is a good alternative that does not upset my digestive system.
Been using this product for some time now. Put it in my smoothie after my workout along with whey protein and hemp protein. Good product, seems to be all says it should be.
Brilliant service from NZ Protein- just the best.
This product is really good and value for money. I have bought it multiple times (unflavored)
It dissolves well but I find the flavoured version a bit sweet
Will order the unflavoured next time
NZPROTEIN REPLY:add more water! It's made for a drink bottle
Am super impressed. Received my order within two days (South Island delivery). It's way too early to comment on results, but I do love this product for being basically odourless and flavourless. I've added this to my breakfast smoothy and black tea. Can't taste it all. Perfect for the fussy eater that I am. Definately ordering this again (and again).
Well, they haven't lied at all. You literally cannot taste it in almost anything. Believe me I decided to put it to the test! You can smell it slightly in hot beverages (but it's minor).
As far as results go? I'm not sure yet. I've been taking it for a few weeks now. It's certainly not hurting. And they're very honest about it's potential benefits - they did their homework and didn't embellish it. I look forward to seeing what a few months of taking it does!
Hey team, appreciate the thorough write-up on this one. Very informative and looks like a great product. I've just ordered one and looking forward to trying it out! Ben
I was impressed with how quickly I received my product so thank you. Mixed the powder in a glass of
water easy and pleasant to drink. Looking forward to ongoing use and benefits in time.
Does what it says on the tin. I was sceptical of "odourless and flavourless" but that is exactly right. It's plain enough to just drink in water without leaving a weird taste in your mouth.
Great value for your money! Mixes well, no lumps - unflavoured with no weird after taste. Bonus, super fast service as I ordered on Sunday night 9pm and received my package the very next day. Would highly recommend.
After a lot of research online I made the decision to take this product during pregnancy. The only health risk I could find was the possibility that taking "too much" collagen could result in health problems from too much calcium - so it avoid the possibility of "too much" I took one serving of 2 teaspoons every two days, rather than twice everyday. Pregnant women have been told to drink bone broth forever for the collagen, but I didn't fancy doing that. I chose this product because it is bovine based rather than marine.
I know my body is naturally prone to stretch marks because my hips got covered in them during puberty when my hips first came in. During pregnancy I went up 20kgs and two clothing sizes, baby measured two weeks ahead, was 9.4lbs. I only got two new tiny marks on one hip and an even smaller one on the other side in the final week. I firmly believe this was due to the collagen powder. I loved the taste of the citrus flavour - will buy again to assist with my recovery as soon as you have more stock.
STAFF COMMENT - the high calcium relates to collagen powders of marine collagen (ours is bovine)
I purchased this on March 29th and recieved it only 2 days later, despite Good Friday occurring in between, and living rurally in Dunedin. Fantastic communication and updates on where the parcel was, from time of packing to dispatch.
The collagen is from NZ pasture-fed bovine sources, making it a great clean type I and II source of collagen at a fantastic price. The collagen dissolves super fast and is virtually transparent in water, with just a slight viscosity to it. I took this first thing in the morning with vitamin C (1000mg), 1/2 hour before eating anything, and will monitor for a month before updating the review.
So far, very very happy with this purchase and the customer service! Thanks!
