    Anyone try using collagen peptides for muscle and joint healing / support? And how did it work for you? Does it work for soft tissue and / or joint injuries? If not collagen, are there any other sources for this purpose? Thanks!

    I have great success with peptides,. BPC-157 was good for tummy (oral). and I heard people injecting on muscles. I am trying a new one injected and prescribed and is doing great for my CFS, got me in remission for 2 weeks after the 4th one.

    What doctor is treating you, and what city are they in?

    What is the new peptide you are injecting?

    Can you just buy the peptides or do you have to get them from your doctor?

    How does collagen peptides differ from hydrolyzed collagen? I have a bad reaction to gelatin and collagen (hair loss, pinching of upper right back muscles) probably related to sulfite sensitivity. Other concern is the presence of glutamate in anything hydrolyzed.

    Me too, there is always depletion of a nutrient that is a co-factor or is antagonized by every supplement. Healthy people seem to get only benefits from taking anything, and collagen is a good example.

    I've been using bone broth to try to nurse my GI back to health. I hope to get my hands on some awesome bones from the butcher whenever I can get into town. Bone broth is a good source of Collagen I've read. For me, a lot of times I just throw a chicken in my slow cooker and let it go all day and that's how I make chicken stock. It's pretty easy on the GI. Sometimes I just have to go with the cheapest option, I want to buy all organic and you know - the good stuff - sometimes can't afford it or can't even leave my house to get supplies. I did not know it had anything to do with CFS, interesting!
    Me too!! I will find something that is promising and working a bit and I'm like 'eureka!' but then - sure as sh1t, it adapts and I'm back to square one. It's like the perfect formula for a really cruel depression!
