According to the Genuine Health Marine Collagen reviews posted by customers, this is a great value Collagen. Many are impressed with the fact that this has no taste and that it mixes easily. Generally, people report great benefits to joint, nail, hair, and skin health. Many people report that this is their supplement of choice. They love it. Some even say that they are obsessed with it.
So, in this product review, we will do some digging on what this supplement is and whether it can really help us.
Hence, the idea is to be no extension of the manufacturer’s marketing or other similar nonsense. This is all going to be about what I feel is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. And we’ll do that in assessing for marketing, ingredients, side effects (additives), customer feedback, and pricing. We’ll do it the truth-seeking way.
Marketing | It Promises What Most Collagen Supplements Usually Promise
According to the manufacturer, the Genuine Health Marine Collagen (Plus Unflavored) is “easily absorbed collagen for hydrated skin, mobile joints & healthier hair – in one easy serving per day.” Per their words, “research-proven dose means you’ll feel the difference when you take marine collagen+.” So, sounds pretty good [R].
As for marketing, it doesn’t feel to add very much of it to persuade people into buying. But there still are quite a few tactics at play.
The first and obvious one is that they offer about 25% off if we order two containers right off the bat. Another one is that they offer free shipping on orders above $100. And on top of that, there’s also a section for Genuine Health Marine Collagen reviews which is quite positive overall.
As for the benefits, they say that this is going to improve our skin texture and hydrate it better, promote hair growth, foster hair health, and aid joint mobility.
As for free-of claims, it’s said to be a clean Collagen. There are no GMOs, Gluten, Dairy, Artificial Colors, or Artificial Flavors involved. On top of that, it’s said to be Keto and Paleo-Friendly.
So, all in all, I think that the Marine Collagen of Genuine Health sounds very good. But is it truly something worth investing in?
Ingredients | Reviewing Ingredients Shows It’s As Great As They Come
Collagens come in all kinds of shapes and forms. We’ve got the clean options that don’t add any extra ingredients like the Spring Valley Collagen Peptides (review). We’ve got those that add extra substances on top of the Collagen aspect like the Yoli Collagen (review). And we’ve got what is almost multivitamin kind of stuff as well like the It Works! CollagenWorks (review). The supplement of this review is the very first of these.
First, we have to discuss sourcing. This one is sourced from Consciously-Sourced North Atlantic fish. Namely, it’s Deep-Sea, Wild-Caught, Sustainably-Sourced fish. Which is the best kind of sourcing for Marine Collagen [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Second, we’ve got 10 grams of it. Thus, this amount coupled with the sourcing they do, it has every reason to deliver on the full range of benefits. Meaning, it’s all of what they claimed and potentially even more [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Third, we have to look at whether or not this has been third-party tested. Because oceans are polluted and Collagen from such fish bears pollution as well. And to that end, Genuine Health Marine Collagen does a very good job.
I mean, they not only in-house test but they also third-party test their products. And then, they also team up with third-party testing organizations like IFOS (for fish oils). From what I can tell, they 100% understand the need to ensure quality. And they go to extensive lengths to make that happen [R].
So, to sum the beneficial contents up, I think that the supplement of this review is as good as Marine Collagen gets (except maybe the addition of Type II Marine Collagen that I see as optional for the purpose of assessing the core ingredients).
Side Effects | There Are No Real Negatives Associated With This
Side effects are typically the product of additives. Meaning, additives are those ingredients that determine whether there will be any side effects present. And it can certainly go both ways.
I mean, just look at something like the Bulletproof Chocolate Collagen Protein (review). It uses Maltodextrin. This is a substance that can cause diarrhea, headaches, weakened immune system, breathing difficulties, as well as a bunch of other potentially unknown side effects because it can also be used to hide other harmful substances within the product [R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
But then, if we compare it to something like the Hey Nutrition Collagen (review), it’s the opposite. Namely, the Hey Nutrition supplement uses just the HMPC or Hypromellose which, by all means, is, essentially, a harmless (and even slightly beneficial) additive to use [R, R, R, R, R, R].
So, what is the story with the supplement of this review in this regard?
Well, it’s actually neither of these. I mean, the Genuine Health Marine Collagen is an unflavored Collagen powder that doesn’t need any additives to make it happen whatsoever. And so, it doesn’t use any. Because I believe they think the same as me that it’s the most quality approach.
One thing that has to be noted is that Collagen itself (the beneficial ingredient) can cause some side effects to a select few people. These include stomach distress, bloating, heartburn, bad taste in the mouth, and feelings of fullness [R, R, R, R].
And if they do happen, I would just recommend trying a different brand or different sourcing (like Bovine or Multi Collagen).
Reviews | Genuine Health Marine Collagen Has Great Customer Feedback
As far as the actual customer feedback goes, there isn’t too much to talk about. I mean, there, for sure, are quite a few Genuine Health Marine Collagen reviews out there. But it seems that the product itself is a rather new one to the market. Hence, I couldn’t even 100 ratings with comments total.
So, on their product page, we’ve got only 11 pieces of feedback. Whereas all of these except just one are five-star reviews. This would mean a 90.9% success rate. But the feedback that the manufacturer can control (it’s on its website), these numbers haven’t been proven reliable.
So, for the purposes of truth-seeking, I looked at third-party sellers and retailers that offer the supplement. And as mentioned, I didn’t find too much.
In total, I came across just 87 Genuine Health Marine Collagen reviews. Of these, 75 were good and 12 were bad. And so, it might be a bit too early for a decently accurate success rate but it seems that it might be sitting at about 86.2%.
This isn’t the best but it’s a decent success rate overall. Meaning, yes, there were a lot of people that absolutely swear by it. There were many that call it the best thing. But what about those people that didn’t enjoy it?
Well, it seems that the most predominant complaint was regarding the taste; customers didn’t feel that it was tasteless. Others were unhappy with the fact that it dissolved poorly. Others were surprised by it smelling bad. And people also noted that the taste and smell they were unable to overthrow with coffee or any juice. Per their words, it was gross.
But then, again, for every complaint, there were at least a couple of comments that claimed the opposite.
Pricing | Does It Stand Up Well Against Other Marine Collagens?
Yeah, pricing is a tricky thing. To add to that, I’m pretty sure I didn’t see any negative or positive Genuine Health Marine Collagen review mention anything about the price. Hence, it begs the question of whether this is a good deal or not? I mean, it would imply so given that no one complains about it? But is that the truth?
So, per container (21 servings), the supplement of this review typically costs $24.99. To do the math, that’s $1.19 for every 10 grams of Marine Collagen. So, what is that when compared to other supplements?
Something like the Landish Marine Collagen (review) costs typically $35.99 for a container of 30 servings. Given that each serving is 8.5 grams, its overall price is $1.41 for every 10 grams of Collagen (Type I and III). Meaning, it’s some 15% higher than with the Genuine Health.
Both of them offer Hydrolyzed, Wild-Caught, North Atlantic Fish Collagen Peptides. Both are Non-GMO. Both don’t use any additives. Both do third-party testing. And both are sustainably sourced. So, the only real difference is the price (apart from Type III Collagen).
Which, by the way, is not that big of a deal either. Personally, I would be happy to do any of these both. And I believe that you could just stick with the one whose philosophy and the way of interacting with people you enjoy most.
Another great Marine Collagen to compare the Genuine Health one with is the Truvani Marine Collagen (review). It’s something that costs $2.12 for every 10 grams of Marine Collagen. And so, it may seem that Genuine Health is infinitely better. But while I would, to some extent, agree with that, there’s another aspect to it.
So, Truvani is just like Genuine Health. The best sourcing, third-party testing, no additives. But what it does add on top of its 11.5 grams of Type I and Type III Collagen per serving is Type II Collagen which is very rare with Marine Collagens.
Thus, I believe when comparing these two, it’s all about whether we value the pure Type I over Type I, II, and III or not.
Overall | I Think It Has Got Everything & I Would Buy This Product
While Genuine Health might not be our typical mainstream supplement manufacturer, I think it has the juice, capability, and dedication to quality to rival even the most formidable Collagen brands out there.
I mean, for positives, it’s awesomely sourced while also being sustainably done. It’s third-party tested to ensure potency and purity. It’s got great additives (none) to minimize any risk of side effects. And it’s a good deal as far as the price goes, to say the least. It’s definitely a very reasonable price for such high value.
And thus, it might feel biased since I don’t have any real drawbacks to mention about it. But do check my other reviews. The criteria for awesome Collagen supplements never change. This one just gets everything right. But if I absolutely had to list a flaw, it would be the fact that it doesn’t have higher success rates.
So, all in all, (out of avoid it, consider it, shortlist it, buy it) I would say that this is a great deal. It’s fine to just buy it.
Whereas if you’re interested in checking out some very capable alternatives before making a final decision, I would recommend looking into the Truvani Marine Collagen (full review) and the Landish Marine Collagen (review).
