Recipe for these jigglers was:

- 1/2 tbsp unflavored gelatin, softened in a couple tbsp of room temp water
- 3/4 cup boiling water (actually doesn’t have to quite boil. I heat to 190 degrees in my electric kettle)
- 1 scoop Dr. Berg orange electrolyte powder
- teeny splash orange extract
- 1 tbsp heavy cream (optional)

Add hot water to the softened gelatin and stir until the gelatin has all dissolved. Stir in the electrolyte powder, orange extract, cream if desired. Electrolyte powder contains stevia so this sweetens it.

I then pour into molds (or just a pan or dish) and put into fridge to set. When my granddaughter was over yesterday we made some without the heavy cream but she had it in a dish like jello topped with freshly whipped cream 😉

For those that take collagen powder, what is your brand? I just started taking "purely inspired" powder. I've only been taking one dose per day; I'm wondering if I should increase to see more benefits. Anyone double their dosage and see benefits from doing so?

How much is one dose and how much collagen does it contain.

It may not be of much use to you as I'm in the UK and use a brand produced here, but, as a comparison, I take two tablespoons daily of Hunter & Gather's Collagen Peptides Bovine Protein Powder which contains 13,000mg of collagen per serving.

We recommend that between and 10g to 30g daily is taken daily. 2 standard tablespoons = 13g per serving.
They also do a Marine Collagen Peptides Protein Powder with 10,000mg of collagen per serving, but I much prefer the taste and higher collagen content of the bovine.

Everything I've read suggests between 2.5 to 15 grams per day as a safe amount to take. Though it depends on what you are taking it for. For example, in this study, a dose of 40mg proved to be safe and effective.

Don't forget that it may also take a while to see the benefits.

I'd think you'd get sick to your stomach before you could consume enough collagen powder to make it "dangerous", unless there's something weird/wrong with the product. Imagine how much collagen you'd be getting naturally if a majority of your diet was pork ribs, chicken wings, ground meats, wieners, sausages, homemade broths, canned whole fish, ham hocks, and cheaper cuts of beef that are tough. I bet there are many lower-budget LCers and/or carnivores who eat exactly like this*.

You could probably hedge your bets by buying a couple of different types of collagen powder, if you're concerned. Both of my brands are grass-fed cattle based, but that brand in the link Demi shared is chicken-based.

*(I wish there was a reasonably-reliable source to put some numbers for collagen in those foods, but a search just pumps out a bunch of crap click-bait listicles. )
