In this AHS Super Collagen review, we’ll go over and assess every single aspect regarding the supplement imaginable.
Thus, throughout this article, we will explore the promotional materials, we’ll look at the beneficial ingredients and inactive ones (additives). Lastly, we’ll also consider what people are saying about the supplement and how well it has been working for them.
Essentially, all to make as accurate of assessment about the AHS Super Collagen supplement as possible.
Thus, you could even say that my goal here is to help you save time by creating the most resourceful review around. But, if by any chance you find a section or aspect I haven’t covered but you’re interested in, let me know. And I’ll add that to the review.
AHS Super Collagen Review – Initial Thoughts & Claims
One of the immediate red-flags is the fact that I wasn’t immediately able to find the manufacturer’s website. And that wasn’t for the lack of effort. It was impossible to locate both by using search engines or just by guessing the website’s URL.
I mean, AHS.com is a website for home warranty services that I deeply doubt has anything to do with AHS as a supplement brand (at least definitely doesn’t seem so).
Yet the supplements of AHS are pretty much sold by any at least reasonable size retailer including Amazon. And then came the breakthrough. Exploring the product images findable by these retailers did reveal that AHS actually does have its own website [R].
According to the information displayed there, AHS Super Collagen is a “unique beauty supplement formulated with vitamin C” [R].
There are 5 claims overall that get associated with benefits. They concern anti-aging and hydrating properties, youthful skin, thicker hair, and stronger nails.
Other than that, I feel the description page is very unprofessionally done and messy.
There are these two supposed sections after the product highlights. One of them is titled “Description” and the other “Additional Information”.
To my surprise, the later section only indicates what kind of sizes are available for the supplement. Which kind of doesn’t really justify the creation of another section altogether. In that sense, it’s beyond my comprehension as to why this is just not mentioned in that description section?
But then the funny thing is that it actually is, hence making the section of “Additional Infomation” completely obsolete and unneeded. Are they trying to create the impression that there’s more information there than there actually is?
Either way, I was not particularly meaning this, when I said that the page is done very poorly. What I was trying to get at is the fact that they are literally providing all of the descriptive information twice. Like duplicate content.
I’m very unsure as to why they do that. Maybe, again, to make it look more? But I feel it would definitely look way better if there was none of that nonsense. So, what there’s not much text?
Brands like Nature’s Bounty, NeoCell or Garden of Life have shown numerous times that you don’t have to have a sales-page-like supplement description page (like Research Verified) to help people learn about it properly.
Hence, it’s so unnecessary.
As for the contents, they let you know some basic background information about Collagen as a beneficial substance, the ingredients, directions, safety warnings, and available container sizes.
I mean, I don’t say this often. But based alone on a superficial look at the promotional materials, the AHS Super Collagen doesn’t really look like the supplement worth investing in.
Yet is it though?
The Potential Benefits Are Great But Can It Actually Get You There?
AHS Super Collagen as a Collagen supplement isn’t only concerned about one main ingredient. No, it also adds vitamin C. Not a lot of it though.
The supplement provides 1000 milligrams or 1 gram of Type 1 and Type 3 Collagen coupled with 10 milligrams of vitamin C in the form of Calcium Ascorbate (arguably the best form for this vitamin) [R, R].
Which means that the Collagen contents are very scarce. And that’s not a good thing.
Plus, there’s nothing really unique about the Collagen in the AHS that would, for example, improve its absorption or any other way guarantee that it can even remotely rival those supplements that provide you with those 6-20 times more Collagen [R].
At least they themselves do not contribute any such information. All that they mention is that “this exclusive system contains a pharmaceutical-grade supplement formula”. As regards to which I don’t really see how that changes anything. To me, it seems that this Collagen in AHS is like any other typical Collagen that really most manufacturers use (but scarce) [R].
So, is this going to meaningfully contribute to you?
I doubt that. But we’ll have another section specifically dealing with and discussing that.
Still, the potential benefits for Collagen supplementation are many. Yes, they’re all of what they mentioned in their promotional materials and more.
On that note, it is known to promote skin elasticity and youth-like look, improve hair, joint and nail health, strengthen teeth, muscles, and bones, reduce cellulite, boost metabolism, aid blood sugar levels and weight loss, help with wrinkles, heal leaky gut, ease bedsores, help get rid of or at least reduce wrinkles, and even reverse signs of aging among other benefits [R, R, R, R, R].
So, although the AHS Super Collagen is rather conservative in its promotional materials with the potential benefits, I feel there’s really no reason for it not to be. Especially given that it hasn’t got what I would consider meaningful amounts of Collagen to begin with.
Additives – Harmless; But Very Misunderstood
Additives are not something that people typically are very aware of. Most just ignorantly assume that they don’t matter. But nothing could be further from the truth. They can affect us profoundly.
So, it matters if they’re harmless or not as they may be significantly contributing to a disease or illness already developed or just developing. Thus, I recommend always taking some time to know your supplement.
When it comes to AHS Super Collagen, there isn’t much to talk about. There’s only one additive here.
Granted, it’s a hugely controversial one.
Don’t believe everything people just write on the internet. Magnesium Stearate is an additive that’s probably (I would even say, definitely) is the most wrongfully hated additive there is [R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
I mean, about 90% of all articles that write about it, write that you should avoid it at all costs. But that’s nothing more than a raving-like interpretation of the available research. Having spent a ton of time on this matter, I have to ultimately agree with what the minority of high-profile doctors and other health professionals are getting at [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Magnesium Stearate is, in truth, an amazingly harmless additive. Don’t anyone let you tell otherwise.
To add to this point, Stearic Acid, one of the two Magnesium Stearate’s constituents that is the exact ingredient blamed for the additive’s harmfulness, is found in mother’s milk. And it’s there in greater amounts than you could ever possibly consume by using supplements (in a single meal for a newborn) [R, R].
To that extent, if Magnesium Stearate is harmful due to the Stearic Acid within it, we shouldn’t let our newborns consume mother’s milk. Because it would then mean that it’s actually harmful to them.
But that couldn’t possibly go any further from the truth.
Global Success Rates Were A Surprise; I Certainly Wasn’t Expecting
Earlier I did put out this idea that this AHS Super Collagen supplement might be highly ineffective due to how little Collagen it in reality contains.
Now, it’s time to test that.
Taking a comprehensive look at (almost) every single real customer review I could find online, showed something I did not expect at all.
As far as I can tell, despite the Collagen contents being very scarce, it has not been an obstacle to help about 85.1% of people who experienced the benefits and were at least somewhat happy with the product. Moreover, given that people typically are far more inclined to report negative experiences than positive ones, the global success rate is likely even higher.
However, is that alone good enough for you to take your money to it?
I strongly doubt that. Not only will you likely get much more out of those supplements that offer significantly more Collagen but also there’s another aspect to consider.
No Manufacturing Culture? Just Generic Self-Affirmed Claims
There’s generally not much you can tell about the manufacturing practices that go into making the supplement just by looking at the product.
Still, the manufacturing aspect of any supplement is arguably one of the most important aspects of all. I mean, the ingredients written on the label may be absolutely superb. But if manufacturing practices don’t deliver, it doesn’t matter. Because these ingredients might ultimately be contaminated and thus, bring more harm than good for your health.
So, what about the manufacturing done by AHS?
There’s nothing but some generic, vague, self-affirmed claims there. There’s nothing that proves (or disproves) any of their statements. So, for all we know, they may (or may not) be making it all up.
I mean, there’s no way of knowing for sure but at least they could have been way more specific in illustrating how this “extensive research”, “cutting-edge technology” etc. manifests itself in real life.
It would be much more trustworthy then.
As it is now, I feel anyone could write and to some extent in the widest possible interpretation fit that incredibly vague criterion that AHS has written about themselves.
Other than that, the fact that they offer 100% money-back guarantee may shine this minute hope of maybe their manufacturing being okay. But that alone I feel does not suffice to trust it with your health.
Do Not Trust This To Deliver Results; Choose Others That Actually Can
I don’t think AHS Super Collagen can get where you want to go.
Namely, I don’t think given how little Collagen amounts it has, it can really contribute to your health and well-being. Sure, in theory, it could still benefit you…
But no matter how harmless the additives or the fact that it also adds proper vitamin C form, 1000 milligrams or 1 gram of Collagen isn’t enough. Plus, that aspect of (for all we know) poor manufacturing practices.
Hence, I feel if you’re serious about Collagen supplements (and the kind of benefits you want), the AHS Super Collagen is really not an option. Namely, I feel it will only drain your bank account without any real return to your buck.
That said if Collagen is what you’re after there are many viable options out there. Here’s the review for my current top recommendation.
Above all, I hope this AHS Super Collagen review helped you find the information you were looking for. But if not, definitely let me know in the comments on how I could further improve it.
If you have as much as 15-30 seconds to spare, even one line in the comments helps a ton and will be highly and sincerely appreciated.
See you in another article!
Cheers, Stay Healthy & Have a Great One!
