The same collagen which is found naturally in bones, skin and cartilage can be replenished with hydrolyzed collagen. This bioactive product contains 90% protein and is easily assimilated by the human body. Hydrolyzed collagen promotes rapid cell growth to produce synovial fluids that first lubricate the joints, then builds tissue. Amino acids collectively benefit cell reproduction and can promote the growth of healthy tissue. The collective amounts of amino acids and a high percentage of Alanine, glycine and proline make this product unique. Collagen Hydrolysate can aid in the body’s ability to repair collagen that has been damaged by vigorous exercise or injury. Collagen makes up 30% or more of the total protein in the body and is the ingredient found in bones, skin, muscles, tendons and other connective tissue.
Uncompromising Superior Quality
It is our commitment that products from Great Lakes Gelatin are of the best and safest gelatins in the industry. We are always monitoring the safety and quality of our products. Each batch of gelatin is tested to evaluate its various characteristics. Official methods of testing have been developed by the Gelatin Manufacturers Institute. The procedures used are variations of those outlined in Association of Official Agricultural Chemists (AOAC) “Methods of Analysis” and United States Pharmacopoeia/ BAM (Bacteriological Analytical Manual). Gelatin is tested for purity, color, taste and odor for those who take it medicinally.

Pasture Raised Grass-Fed Cattle
Great Lakes Gelatin shares the concerns that many of our customers have about animal welfare and the quality of the grazing conditions for cattle. We believe cattle should be raised in a natural environment. Our bovine collagens and gelatins are made from the hides of cattle from our associated partners in Argentina and Brazil. The cattle are pasture raised and grass-fed in Argentina and Brazil and beef hides are the only product used to manufacture gelatin in these countries. Ranchers in Argentina and Brazil have traditionally raised cattle in herds that graze freely on natural grasslands. We visit the region regularly and have observed first-hand that this is the case. Great Lakes Gelatin has a long history with our foreign partners and we only do business with sources that we trust are adhering to the principles of animal welfare and are grazing herds in the traditional manner. These countries have the same type of rigorous tests and inspections as the United States.
Unflavored Collagen Hydrolysate
By a person’s mid-twenties, the body starts losing its natural ability to repair connective tissue, bones, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, blood cells, skin tissue, hair, and nails. Scientists have discovered that hydrolyzed collagen can provide these missing nutritional links. Hydrolyzed collagen is a unique combination of amino acids that can promote healing and conditioning over other proteins especially for bone and joint health care. Amino acids are collectively beneficial to cell reproduction and the distinctive spectrum of this product can promote the growth of healthy tissue. What makes this product unique is the high amounts of Amino Acids – Alanine, Glycine, & Proline, that you won’t find in other protein supplements. The same collagen which is found naturally in your bones, skin and cartilage, can be replenished with hydrolyzed collagen. This bioactive product contains 90% protein and is easily assimilated by the human body. Hydrolyzed collagen promotes rapid cell growth to produce synovial fluids that first lubricate joints, then build tissue. Doctors have referred to our product as the new anti-aging product of the century!

Hydrolyzed collagen/gelatin provides the missing nutritional links for most dietary supplements and a nitrogen balance required to support age related collagen loss and cartilage damage. Collagen is the most abundant protein found naturally in animals and humans. Proteins are a primary element of life’s sustenance. The body contains millions of amino acids and peptides which are smaller than proteins and are essential to the body to regulate cell functions. The Glycine content of collagen assists the liver in handling foreign substances for individuals exposed by habit or occupation to toxic substances like chemicals, pollutants, alcohol or tobacco. Great Lakes Gelatin has excellent products for those with a sedentary lifestyle who may suffer from repetitive joint pain or discomfort. Feelings of alertness, improved concentration, balanced mood, improved energy and increased sense of well-being are reported by many users.
