| Summary | Ranking | Marketing | Ingredients | Side Effects | Reviews | Pricing | Overall |
Isagenix Collagen Elixir is arguably the best liquid Collagen supplement out there at the moment, no joke. While the amounts per serving could be higher and the price isn’t the most affordable, it delivers on purity, sustainability, and sourcing big time.
Frankly, I don’t think there are any other truly viable Collagen options out there if a liquid form is what you are specifically after. And it has many awesome quirks. But the price won’t work for everyone.
|Summary||Isagenix Collagen Elixir|
|Claimed Benefits||Accurate. | It claims a more youthful appearance, reduction of wrinkles and fine lines while also offering skin elasticity, support for hair and nails, as well as a healthy glow. | It has good reasons to deliver.|
|Ingredients||Awesome. | It is sustainably sourced from Wild-Caught which is the best sourcing. | It is Non-GMO, Soy-Free, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, and more. | It offers a beauty-oriented blend as well. | Ideally, there should have been more Collagen per bottle (but that’s easy to adjust).|
|Side Effects||None. | Manufacturing and additives are great. | Side effects should not be possible.|
|Quality||Third-party testing. | It is the best kind of testing. | Testing it like this is extremely important with Fish-related supplements, and the Isagenix Collagen Elixir has that.|
|Success Rate||Likely above 94.0%. | There are no reviews on third-party sites as of yet.|
|Price||$8.80 for every 10 grams of Marine Collagen. | The price is absolutely extreme. | Still, there is an insane amount of quality that comes with that.|
|Ranking||Depends. | I would not rank it among the very best Collagens overall. | Bet for the liquid ones, I believe this is the best thing.|
|Recommendation||Shortlist it. | There is a ton of awesome with the Collagen Elixir of Isagenix but the price is a little much, to say the least.|
|Better Alternatives?||Landish Marine Collagen (review) is the better Marine Collagen. But I would still prefer the Live Conscious Collagen Peptides (full review with a summary) over this one.|
Ranking | Where Does This Collagen Supplement Rank (In 2022)?
Marketing | Isagenix’s Elixir Really Pushes The Idea Of Beauty Inside Out
According to the manufacturer, the Isagenix Collagen Elixir is a supplement that offers enough nourishment on the inside to grant beauty on the outside. Per their words, to make that happen, it’s got Marine Peptides and a mix of powerful botanicals. And they are doing it in a carbon-neutral way.
The product page is very thorough. But never overbearing. It’s kind of the ideal balance of just the right information and too much of it.
To that end, it’s kind of like the Zint Marine Collagen (review) and the Live Conscious Collagen Peptides (review).
So, as for the benefits, the notion of glowing radiantly and living beautifully is kind of their tagline. So, they’re going with skin health, hair health, and nail health. Additionally, it’s about improved natural Collagen production.
And so, promoting that youthful appearance is everything with this one. This leads me to the marketing aspects.
Obviously, we get a section for Isagenix Collagen Elixir reviews. As it typically is, all of them are highly positive. We also get a $6 discount if we’re their preferred customer. And there’s free shipping on the first order if we subscribe.
And there are also testimonials and some before-after pictures to help people decide in favor of it. And it seems that buying more right off the bat also gets some discounts.
Lastly, as for free-of stuff, it’s said to be Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Soy-Free, and Non-GMO. It comes with a wildberry flavor, and it’s Sugar-Free. They also use 100% recyclable bottles.
But is it actually worth the investment?
Ingredients | I’m Not Sure About Collagen Amounts & Added Nutrients
There are plenty of different Collagens out there. But the supplement of this review does remind me heavily of the products like the Pure Gold Collagen (review) and LAC Taut Collagen (review). Which is likely purely due to their format. Namely, a liquid Collagen supplement in a tiny bottle per serving.
So, per serving (one bottle), the Isagenix Collagen Elixir offers 5 grams of Marine Collagen Blend and 160 milligrams of Proprietary Blend which consists of Goji extract powder, Aloe Vera juice powder, Acerola Berry extract, and Chamomile extract.
On top of that, we also get 50 milligrams of vitamin C, 30 micrograms of Biotin (vitamin B7), and 3 milligrams of Zinc.
Now, here’s what it all means.
First, for Collagen contents, 5 grams may sound like a lot. I mean, it’s 5,000 milligrams after all. But it actually isn’t that much at all. In fact, I would much rather prefer it to be at least 10 grams. That’s what has been shown to be most helpful [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
So, the amounts are lacking a bit I would say. But the sourcing seems to be decent given that this is sourced from Wild-Caught, Sustainably-Sourced Fish of the Scandinavian seas. And they have even got a certification from Marine Stewardship Council for doing it sustainably. And that’s awesome [R, R, R, R, R, R].
As for testing, I didn’t actually expect this with Isagenix. But they actually third-party test their products. And that’s a must for Marine supplements. Furthermore, the facility they make their Collagen Elixir is carbon neutral. Hence, their doing it in a truly sustainable and quality way [R].
As for that Proprietary Blend, we’ve got Goji, Aloe Vera, and Acerola Berry which all are very powerful antioxidants. Whereas Chamomile is best known for its medical properties. All in all, these definitely do have some capacity to aid skin health and promote anti-aging [R, R, R, R].
On that note, I’m not sure if 160 milligrams is the amount to do it though.
As for those vitamins and minerals, I wouldn’t expect anything of these. I mean, they will contribute to natural Collagen production. But I would much rather just have more Collagen. To that end, the vitamins and minerals in the Isagenix Collagen Elixir do feel a bit useless.
They might as well just not have been there. It wouldn’t make any real difference, the way I see it.
Side Effects | Additives Are Great Unlike What We See With Its Rivals
Side effects are typically the product of additives. And powder Collagens typically never have problems with them. I mean, something like the Bulletproof Collagen Protein (review) is an absolute exception to that.
But liquid Collagens are an entirely different story. I mean, those to the very least struggle due to ingredients like Potassium Sorbate. It’s an ingredient that can cause DNA damage and thus, lead to cancer and other problems. An example of that is the Vim & Vigor Collagenate (review). Artificial Sweeteners in them are another common problem [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
And while I expected the Isagenix Collagen Elixir to have that same problem, it turns out that it doesn’t.
It uses Water, Apple juice concentrate, Acacia Gum, Citric Acid, Natural Flavors, Sunflower Lecithin, and Stevia (Stevia rebaudiana) leaf extract. Here’s what all of them are in essence.
Water is water. It’s kind of expected for a huge chunk of the liquid Collagen to be Water. And as that substance, it isn’t harmful. It’s very necessary for life. And, in fact, it can grant extra benefits when our bodies get an adequate amount [R, R, R, R].
Apple juice concentrate is another thing that can only be beneficial and won’t cause harm. In terms of gains, it can help heart health, weight control, liver health, and skin health, as well as help fight off diabetes and constipation among other things [R, R, R, R, R].
Then, we have Acacia Gum or Tahl Gum which is something that works great as a Prebiotic (dietary fiber) for digestive health. In addition to that, it can also positively impact pain relief, weight loss, liver health, oral health, and wound healing, as well aid with diabetes and cholesterol levels among other things [R, R, R, R, R, R].
Citric Acid can become tricky despite being a substance also found in our bodies and nature (like citrus fruits). But it’s Non-GMO here and we get the product in separate Non-Aluminum bottles. The only danger due to this could be if we already had tons of it, like due to too many processed foods in our diet [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Natural Flavors can be a tricky thing and are not necessarily healthy. But if the manufacturing practices are great, no real concerns should exist. And with the Isagenix Collagen Elixir and their third-party testing, it should be more than fine. I mean, it could also prove to be slightly beneficial [R, R, R, R, R].
Sunflower Lecithin is another very helpful thing. It can aid heart health, support digestion, help fight dementia, foster skin health, reduce cholesterol levels, promote liver health, balance blood pressure levels and hormones, boost the immune system, and do other helpful things. On top of that, Sunflower is kind of the best way of Lecithin [R, R, R, R].
Lastly, in the Isagenix Collagen Elixir, we’ve got Stevia which is a natural and healthy sweetener. I mean, unlike its artificial counterparts, this one can provide anti-cancer benefits, help battle high blood sugar levels and cholesterol levels, improve gut health, aid in facing Lyme disease, foster weight loss, and more [R, R, R, R, R].
So, the supplement of this review is definitely a very decent set of additives.
Reviews | Isagenix Collagen Elixir Customer Feedback Is Hard To Come By
Customer reviews are one of the two practical things that I like to look at about every supplement. I mean, the way I see it, they let us in on the broader perspective. But they certainly aren’t everything as there are plenty of terrible supplements still getting success rates of 95% or more.
So, what’s the story with Isagenix Collagen Elixir?
Well, let’s just say that it’s tricky.
I mean, yes, we’ve got 106 Isagenix Collagen Elixir reviews posted by customers on the manufacturer’s page. And that’s great. But these typically are not the most reliable as far as truth-seeking goes.
Supplements like the Bubs Naturals Collagen Protein (review) and Nature’s Truth Ultra Collagen (review) do illustrate that perfectly.
So, I did some digging to see if there is anything that can be found by third-party sellers and retailers. And I couldn’t find anything.
It seems to me that the only reviews for this one are those that are done by independent reviewers like myself. Other than that, it’s a genuine void. No one sells it other than the manufacturer online. Not even Amazon or eBay.
But if I had to estimate what the global success percentage might be like given the ingredients that it has, I would say that the Isagenix Collagen Elixir is likely sitting at about 94.0% or 95.0% success rate. It just feels really good. I mean, I haven’t really been able to fault it so far.
And then, the only customer feedback that it does have is that everything is the perfection about it.
Many people love the taste. Many are excited by the smoother and more hydrated skin, stronger and longer nails, and thicker and softer hair. Others swear that this makes them look younger. And others more note that this is an absolute game-changer.
Pricing | Liquids Are Typically More Expensive But This Feels Excessive
Now, here’s the other practical aspect we have to assess. Because this makes or breaks some of the supplements. I mean, I’ve seen many being decent up until this point but then, really destroying their chances at being viable with this. Namely, we have to discuss pricing and whether or not it’s reasonable.
So, for a box of 30 bottles, the price typically is $132 (preferred customers) or $150 (for anyone else). Since it seems that the only thing we have to do to enjoy the preferred customer price is to sign up with them, that’s the price we’re going to use for assessing it.
Namely, it’s $132 for a month’s worth. That’s $4.40 for a bottle of 5 grams of Marine Collagen. Meaning, that’s $8.80 for every 10 grams of Marine Collagen.
Now, how does that compare?
I think that there’s no way around it. The price is a high one. There’s just no other way to put it. Here are a few examples to illustrate.
One of my favorite Collagen supplements is the Truvani Marine Collagen (review). This one typically comes for $38.24. For the price, we get a container of 15 servings where each serving is 12 grams. Hence, to do the math, that’s $2.12 for every 10 grams of Marine Collagen.
That’s about 25% of the price of Isagenix Collagen Elixir.
Now, Truvani and Isagenix both are third-party tested, and both have high-quality ingredients. Truvani doesn’t use additives but Isagenix has only helpful ones. Truvani adds Type II Marine Collagen whereas Isagenix adds a Proprietary Blend with some vitamins and minerals.
I mean, granted, Truvani is a powder supplement and liquid Collagen supplements do tend to be the more expensive ones. Still, we can make any powder a liquid with a beverage of our liking.
Thus, I would personally say that Truvani feels like the better deal. I mean, the difference in price is just too insurmountable.
Another example would be the Landish Marine Collagen (review). This one typically costs $35.99 for a container. To do the math, that’s $1.41 for every 10 grams of Marine Collagen. Hence, that’s about 15% of what Isagenix Collagen costs.
Landish is third-party tested, Wild-Caught, Deep-Sea, and Non-GMO. It also doesn’t have any additives. And, yes, yes, that pricing is an insane difference.
Pros & Cons | Realistically, There Is Almost Nothing Bad
|✓ The supplement is truly sustainable with how the source their Fish. They even have a third-party certification for that (from the Marine Stewardship Council).||✘ The Isagenix Collagen Elixir’s price is a little much, to say the least.|
|✓ It is Non-GMO, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, and Soy-Free.||✘ While it does offer only 5 grams of Collagen per serving, we can easily just take two to get to those 10 grams and have the best chance at benefits.|
|✓ It is easy to take with you wherever you go. It is very easy to consume.|
|✓ The additive choices are superb.|
|✓ The sourcing of Isagenix’s Elixir is the best. Furthermore, they third-party test it for purity. I mean, the quality is just ideal.|
Overall | The Price Does A Bit Undermine This Liquid Supplement
Isagenix is an MLM company. And many people out there just don’t agree with the MLM philosophy. And while I can’t judge enough whether or not their business model is sustainable and well thought out, here’s what I can say. They definitely do know how to make their Collagen Elixir.
I mean, personally, I wouldn’t mind trying it. And I think that actually says a lot since I’m very mindful about my supplements.
So, for the positives, it has great ingredients. I love the Collagen sourcing. I love the third-party testing that they do. I like the additives that they use. And we got to love the fact that it’s carbon-neutral, Non-GMO, and 100% recyclable bottles.
But for negatives, we definitely have the pricing. It’s very, very high. Still, it doesn’t look as bad if we put it against other Liquid Collagens, specifically.
And then, the Collagen amounts per bottle could be better. But it’s possible to simply use two as well. It is flexible like that if we want to get ourselves to those 10 grams.
Hence, (out of avoid it, consider it, shortlist it, buy it) I believe that the Isagenix Collagen Elixir we should shortlist, to the very least. Yes, it’s expensive but it’s also the only decent Liquid Collagen I’ve seen so far. And it would be an understatement to say that I’ve looked at a lot of products.
On that note, I guess we could even say that this is buyable if you’re after Liquid Collagen specifically and you want nothing else. That said, if you are still open-minded to what else is out there, I would propose looking into the Landish Marine Collagen (full review). Or you can check out my go-to Collagen as well (full review with a summary).
Above all, I hope this review helped you find the information you were looking for. If you have any thoughts or questions, I’m just a comment away. And do feel free to leave your own personal reviews on the product as well.

I sell the Isagenix collagen and find your review very fair.
It is expensive! Admittedly, I stopped taking it for a while because I didn’t really think I needed it but the more customer reviews I get the more encouraged I am to take it again. That and the hair revival. People are giving it to their cows as a natural way to encourage hair growth. So crazy!
Aloha Matiss! I really, really appreciate your review of this product! I’m also deciding on trying this as well but the price has me on the fence. EVERYTHING looks so good, just that ONE thing. Your thorough review has got me hooked on your site for everything else I’d like to know more about! Thank you for making it so much easier for us all on deciding on a product! Keep up the awesome work!
From Honolulu, Hawaii
That makes me very happy to hear. Thank you for letting me know. And I’m glad this was helpful. <3
Yeah, price is definitely a hurdle with the Isagenix Collagen. And I absolutely feel you.
Still, I feel that there pretty much are no viable, decent alternatives if we are in the market for a liquid Collagen, specifically. I mean, there are all kinds of products like LAC Taut Collagen (review) and Reverse Life Collagen (review) but none of them does a truly good job. They just don’t use good enough additives to be viable as a long-term option. And that’s a problem.
If and whenever you need me, I’m here, Candace. :)
I am reading about this product as a skeptic. It’s hard to just throw at me any supplement and expect me to just go with it. I don’t do that. I do my research. And this is something that I would not jump right on, for sure.
I like that it can be significantly helpful to nails, hair, and skin. Benefits to these three are always nice. On top of that, the fact that it focuses on natural ingredients I think is great. It seems to be far less harmful than some of the supplements I have read about before.
But I am not a fan of the price. Almost $5 dollars for 10 grams I am not impressed by that. At my rate of consumption, I would be using $10 per sitting. And, in my opinion, that adds up very quickly which is bad, to say the least.
Overall, I liked the product if only it cost less. It would make for a great gift to my niece (never mind the other cons).
Yeah, I think that’s a great approach. We should never just give in to some random marketing and not even look at the actual contents of any given supplement. That’s a sure-fire way to bad decision-making, poor long-term health, and side effects.
I agree with what you said about the price. I mean, the product is pretty great. But the price kind of destroys it as an option. Yes, these liquid Collagen supplements typically cost a bit more than powders or even capsule/tablet ones. Still, $5 feels a bit unreasonable to me. And, indeed, if you’re having two bottles in one take, that’s definitely a strain on one’s budget.
And that’s a great point. While I hadn’t thought about it that way before, it does make for a great gift. I mean, the packaging is really nice and beautiful. We can also wrap it up easily.
Does anyone know if this liquid collagen hype is worth it? I have a relative who is currently using one and she is not sure whether it is working. She’s been having it for about two months now but says that it hasn’t helped. Granted, it’s not Isagenix. It’s some other brand that I can’t currently recall.
As for this Collagen Elixir, will it truly do all the things it promises as described in this article (thicker hair, better nails, looking younger, etc.) or is it just over-exaggerated propaganda? Like what I believe is the case with some of the other supplements.
This would be great to find out, so I can help my relative out. Neither of us has the expertise on this subject. And the other person is kind of notorious for almost never doing proper research whenever she buys something. She simply looks at the customer reviews and decides based on those.
I feel you. There is a ton of hype around Collagen right now. But all that hype is pretty well-founded in research. There are enormous benefits that can be gained by adding some extra Collagen to our diet. Because it’s something that we naturally produce less of after the age of 25. So, balancing that natural decline can really improve things.
As to why that particular supplement hasn’t worked, that’s hard to say. I mean, it may be just a matter of not being consistent with it enough. It can also be the case of that particular brand not offering quality sourcing. It may be a harbinger of gut-related problems or inflammation. Or it can simply just not work for no apparent reason at all.
Thus, when that happens, I would propose trying out a different one. And then, if that doesn’t work, change the sourcing. For example, if it was Bovine Collagen, try Marine Collagen like the Isagenix. And if that doesn’t work either, then I would propose looking into something different that could help with hair, skin, and nails, like a Biotin supplement.
As for the Isagenix Collagen Elixir and all its promised benefits, yes, I do believe that it can help with what it promises. Relevant research does approve of that point.
And, yeah, I think many people have that habit. I mean, to just look at the customer reviews and 100% decide based on that. But with supplements, that’s especially dangerous since people typically rate supplements on how they feel in the moment and not by the ingredients that it has. Which is why my reviews are not just a summary of what customers have said.
Early on I learned about a good of ostentation in Economics class. It’s defined as an exclusive good and one that is typically of a high price. This product feels like this to me, unfortunately. I was actually quite interested in the ingredients (antioxidants and natural extracts) and benefits (e.g. digestive health) of Isagenix Collagen Elixir but as you put it the price murdered the product for me. A pity since I agree that the potential success of the product is likely to be a high percentage.
Yeah, I agree with that, for sure.
This feels like a decently exclusive product. Yet, the price is just bonkers. It’s a rather unreasonable one, no doubt. I mean, if it was $2 for 10 grams of Marine Collagen, that would be amazing. $3 would still be great. $4 would still be fine, I believe. But $8.80 is just too much.
Thank you so much for your review of the Isagenix collagen supplement.
I agree that it is wonderful that Isagenix employS manufacturing methods that are environmentally friendly. l also appreciate that the fish used to get the collagen from are sourced sustainably.
Quick question, how much fish would I need to consume to equal 5 grams of collagen? Sometimes I find it is just better to add some more food variety to my diet to up my collagen, or any vitamin, intake.
I can respect that this company is honest on their labeling and it seems this is a legit product.
I may be ordering in the near future : )
Thanks again for all the well-researched information.
I’m glad you liked it. Thank you for letting me know. And I wholeheartedly appreciate the kind words. :)
I don’t think that’s realistically possible. Because adding high amounts of Collagen would mean consuming parts of fish that we don’t typically consume. We can’t get meaningful amounts of Collagen just by regularly eating fish if that makes sense. And that’s the beauty of Collagen supplements. :)
