Great Lakes Wellness

Great Lakes Gelatin Collagen Hydrolysate is also free of Allergens, gluten, and MSG. Great Lakes Gelatin sources cattle that traditionally graze freely on natural grasslands.

What makes this product unique are the high amounts of Amino Acids – Alanine, Glycine and 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 92% protein and is easily assimilated by the human body. Hydrolyzed collagen promotes cell growth which produces synovial fluids that first lubricate joints and then build tissue.

About the Brand

There’s a pretty good reason people turn to Great Lakes Wellness for their nutritional products: They trust that we know what we’re doing, because we’ve had nearly 100 years to perfect it. Like you, we’ve been around long enough to learn what really works. All of our nutritional products are made with clean, functional ingredients that support the changing needs of your skin, hair, joints and digestive health. Our key ingredients are clinically researched to support specific health benefits, and all ingredients are rigorously tested for quality and our products are formulated to taste great, dissolve quickly, and be so easy to use that you’ll want to enjoy them every day.

Not only have we been making gelatin products since 1922, but we transformed the U.S. collagen market in 2009 by creating the first cold-water soluble collagen hydrolysate (also known as collagen peptides). Translation: we created the first taste-free, single ingredient collagen that could be mixed into any beverage, so health-conscious folks like you could actually enjoy drinking it. Today, we’re using that deep collagen expertise to develop clinically formulated products focused on specific health benefits, including our Daily Beauty, Daily Joint, and Daily Digestion. We’ve also created a new marine-based collagen, meaning pescatarians and flexitarians can now drink to their health.


What is collagen?
  • Collagen is found naturally in bones, skin and cartilage. Our Collagen Hydrolysate is from the hide. Containing over 90% protein and a distinctive amino acid group that make it rapidly absorbed and easily assimilated by the body. Collagen contains glycine, lysine and proline, which can be used by the body to build connective tissue structures to support cell functions.
What types of collagen are in your product?
  • Our Hydrolyzed Bovine Collagen Peptides are Type 1 and Type 3.
What is the difference between Collagen Hydrolysate and gelatin?
  • Collagen Hydrolysate is a form of gelatin and the amino acid profiles are the same. Collagen Hydrolysate is easily dissolved in smoothies, juice, coffee, etc. It is the best choice for consumers looking to add this nutrition to their diet. Gelatin needs to be warmed to dissolved and will form a gel which is great for cooking applications.
How are the cattle raised?
  • Great Lakes Wellness’ collagen and beef gelatin products are sourced from cattle raised in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, and the United States. The cattle were born and pasture-raised on rural properties, where they were grass-fed and continually subject to veterinary supervision. Great Lakes Wellness is committed to monitoring emerging welfare practices and research to stay informed about the latest advances in animal welfare, food safety and quality.
Is collagen safe for breastfeeding/expecting moms?
  • We recommend talking with your doctor first, as nutritional needs can vary when breastfeeding or expecting.
Is collagen safe for my child?
  • We always recommend that you talk with your pediatrician, as each child’s needs will differ.
