TripToTheGlueFactory: If you want to ingest something of dubious benefit that is produced from the hoofs of animals(and other tasty animal products)go ahead,it won't harm you if it's produced according to the usual health regulations.But don't put too much value on it other than as a source of a protein complex that will be broken down in the stomach and then absorbed.Always ask "will this make it to where I want it?"
