A Great Alternative | Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides (full review)
Throughout this Live Conscious Collagen Peptides review (what was and for now still is LiveWell Collagen Peptides review), we will dive into every little thing about the supplement.
Meaning, we will, inevitably, explore the promotional materials and all the claims, beneficial ingredients, potential benefits, additives, customer reviews, global success rates, and last of all, we will also look into pricing and how that compares to its rivals.
A few words: we’re huge believers in this. We both think it’s the best, most capable, violently awesome Collagen thing out there. And we’ll try to do out best not to fanboy out as we do seek to make our reviews as unbiased and truth-oriented as possible. But please forgive us if it feels we do. We reassure you, we’re all about the truth.
One Of The Most Pleasant Collagen Supplement Pages We’ve Visited
According to the manufacturer, Live Conscious (LiveWell) Collagen Peptides “are sourced from grass-fed, pasture-raised, Grade A bovine, and are certified hormone-free and 100% non-GMO.” They even go further than that [R, R].
Per their words, “containing 20 amino acids, [these] Collagen Peptides are enzymatically formulated for enhanced bioavailability and absorption to support bone and joint health, strengthen hair, skin, and nails, improve gut and immune function, and benefit the body’s overall cellular structure, so you can live, look and feel (better than) well” [R].
And that basically covers the promised benefits, apart from also the implied gain of anti-aging.
Overall, there’s a lot of well-structured information here. And amidst that, they have managed to keep it cool, light, lucid. For us, as far as Collagen supplement description pages go, this is one of our favorite ones.
As for the marketing tactics used on the page, there definitely are a few.
There are these one-time purchase options which basically embody this notion of the more we buy right off the bat, the bigger discount we get. Then there’s also the option to subscribe and save even more. And they also offer a 365-day money-back guarantee.
Lastly, there are customer reviews that are so far similar in their nature to those that we’ve seen with supplements like Ancient Nutrition Multi Collagen Protein (review) or Amandean Marine Collagen (review). More on that later. But the best part is that all of it still feels light and even welcome. It’s what a product page should be.
There are many examples of what it shouldn’t be, everything starting from Vim & Vigor Collagenate (review) to LAC Taut Collagen (review) to Organixx Clean Sourced Collagens (review). We’re glad this is not one of them. And, yes, of course, there are also promises of being Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Preservative-Free, Soy-Free, Paleo-Friendly, and Keto-Friendly.
So, overall, looks good, eh? Well, they usually all do if we consider just the promotional aspects of things.
Truly High-Quality Collagen Peptides & Third-Party Tested
Not every Collagen supplement is like the next one. Obviously, there’s a lot of wiggle room here, but what we’re specifically referring to is how they’re formulated. Namely, there are at least three clearly identifiable approaches to this.
First, there are those that provide only Collagen and don’t bother with anything else. Further Food Collagen (review) and Great Lakes Gelatin Collagen Hydrolysate (review) are classic examples of that. Second, there are those that add one or two extra substances to round it off, as we’ve seen with Nature’s Life Marine Collagen (review) or NeoCell Super Collagen + C (review). Third, these are almost multivitamin-like ones for which Collagen is kind of just a primary tool like what we’ve encountered with It Works CollagenWorks (review) or Code Age Multi Collagen (review).
Of all of these, the Live Conscious (LiveWell) Collagen Peptides is best characterized by the first group (despite the negligible amounts of extra minerals it adds). It’s a supplement that cares only about Collagen. But the approach they take to providing it is really what kind of sets them apart from any other supplement we’ve both reviewed.
It starts out pretty much the same as any other supplement. It’s 11 grams of Bovine Collagen per single scoop of the product. Of course, it’s pasture-raised and grass-fed like Ancient Nutrition Multi Collagen (review), Perfotek Collagen (review), or almost any other brand out there.
Which makes perfect sense because we wouldn’t want Collagen any other way. It wouldn’t be nearly as beneficial. But what we’re trying to get at here is that Collagen Peptides of Live Conscious (LiveWell) go another step further than that. They are massively different in this regard from by far most. It’s their hormone-free certification.
You see, often even when Collagen is claimed to be grass-fed, the animals are not actually grass-fed all year round, only certain months of the year or most of the year. Which means that for the rest of it the animals are typically fed corn and given antibiotics (hormones). Which, needless to say, does take away from its ultimate goodness.
But not a lot of brands are willing to go that extra mile (or even just talk about or mention it). Live Conscious (LiveWell) is. But to add to the quality of the whole thing even more, they also do third-party testing on their end-products just like Reserveage Collagen Booster (review) and Garden of Life Collagen Peptides (review) do [R].
Live Conscious (LiveWell) Does Not Do Potentially Harmful Ingredients?
It’s really a shame as to how many manufacturers mess this next part up. We can easily count among those supplements stuff like Applied Nutrition Liquid Collagen (review) or Health Direct AminoSculpt Collagen Original (review). The aspect of additives.
Yeah, it’s a big one despite many trying to downplay the role of them. The truth is there are substances that get used for these that we wouldn’t ever recommend consuming, even in the tiniest of amounts.
So, what about these other ingredients in this Collagen thing of Live Conscious (LiveWell)?
Well, typically, when a supplement claims to be preservative-free, it still actually contains additives. And this for most people is a surprise since they tend to assume that if it’s preservative-free, it should be additive-free.
But with the supplement of review, even with that assumption, we would not be misled into thinking this is something it isn’t. Because it’s just pure Collagen Peptides.
Yeah, not every supplement needs them. And Collagen powders absolutely don’t. Similarly, also MCT oils and Carotenoid supplements can do without. But generally speaking, this is not a common occurrence. Especially, when it comes to capsule or tablet supplements (see, for example, Doctor’s Best Collagen review or NeoCell Marine Collagen review).
Hence, there’s kind of nothing to really discuss here for the Peptides of Live Conscious (LiveWell). It’s all beneficial without a thought or concern for likely side-effects.
This One Enjoys A Very High Success Rate Based On Customer Reviews
Now, coming back to the customer reviews we can find on the manufacturer’s page, it used to be quite unconventional. Meaning, it used to be a section where they kind of directly pulled a selection of the customer reviews from Amazon. That is no longer the case.
Now, it’s much more the customer feedback sections we see across supplements like Skinny Fit Youth Collagen (review), NeoCell Liquid Collagen (review), and just Collagen supplements in general. But there is one aspect it which it differs.
As they put it, “in the interest of transparency, we never use incentives to influence these reviews” [R].
Or, in other words, what they’re basically saying is that they don’t give out free supplements or discounts in order to influence customer feedback (like, for example, Sanar Collagen (review) does).
This does not, however, rule out the possibility of simply deleting, adjusting, modifying the Live Conscious Collagen Peptides reviews there, the way we both see it.
And that’s fine even if they do (which they may also not, by the way) because it’s marketing. These sections are all classically used up-play a product’s positives and convince as many consumers as possible to buy the thing.
But since, it may or may not be a section that represents the actual truth, we won’t rely on it. Instead, we’ll take it to the third-party sellers and retailers.
So, when actually looking at every single real customer comment from various retailers and sellers, the picture doesn’t feel quite as overwhelmingly positive. Meaning, not everyone has a positive to say about the thing. In total, we managed to find 559 negative Livewell Collagen Pepitides reviews, almost all of which come from Amazon. That’s out of a total of 6,839 pieces of feedback.
Which does make for a decent global success rate at 91.8%. But it is likely even higher. This is not only because people generally are more inclined to report negative experiences than positive ones. No…
This is also because of one other concern.
As far as we can tell from the reviews on Amazon, some have identified that it’s arguably not the same product (probably a fake). Vital Proteins, Code Age, and Dr. Emil brands are all potentially having the same issue.
Plus, we’ve encountered this with Turmeric Curcumin products like Nutricology CurcuWIN (review), Probiotics like Nutrition Essentials Probiotic (review), even Apple Cider Vinegar ones like Bragg (review), and others.
Overall, it’s a rather really concerning trend that’s emerging with purchasing supplements from this widely known platform and other similar platforms (here’s more on that).
To Review Pricing, Arguably The Best Priced Thing We’ve Encountered
So, customer reviews and the global success rate is kind of just one side of the coin. Another practical aspect is pricing. In which regard, we won’t really find many complaints about it (if any). But that is not typically enough to properly determine whether or not it’s good value for money or even just reasonably priced.
So, per bag (41 servings), the Live Conscious (LiveWell) Collagen Peptides has the original price of $34.99. Which we feel is something just for the show as no one will really ever buy it for that fee. This is because there are a couple of very flexible options for how to improve it significantly.
To clarify, the subscribe and save deals (which are possible to both pause and cancel any time) make it very accessible in terms of great pricing. The $26.99 option is probably what most people will opt for but it’s possible to get it even for $22.99 per bag. That’s about $0.56 per serving or about 5.10 cents per gram of true quality Collagen Peptides.
And that’s a genuinely busted price. Here are a few examples of how it compares to its most upper-echelon rivals to illustrate.
Let us take the Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides (review). The original price of this typically is equal to about $25. But we can get it with a 35% discount for $16.25. But it is a one-time thing since for each consecutive order that’s only 15%. Hence, realistically, that’s $21.25 per container. But the container doesn’t hold 41 servings, only 14 is its capacity.
To do the math, that’s $1.51 per serving. But since a serving is 20 grams of peptides, that’s 7.59 cents per gram of Collagen. Or, in other words, that’s 48.8% more than what Life Conscious costs. Plus, we would argue that Vital Proteins is less value given that it is not Hormone-Free certified.
Another superb option out there is the Sports Research Collagen Peptides (review). This one typically costs $30 per container which is 41 servings. Thus, it costs around $0.73 per serving or about 6.65 cents per gram. So, it’s about 30.4% more expensive than the supplement of this review.
And, yes, there are other options out there that come much closer to the price of Live Conscious (LiveWell) Collagen Peptides. However, almost none of those offer third-party testing for purity and potency. Which we believe due to the typical process of Collagen production is just too important to omit.
By All Means, A Genuinely Great Supplement To Go With AKA Buy-Able
So, where does it all leave us with this LiveWell transitioning into Live Conscious Collagen Peptides?
Well, frankly, I hope you can understand us a little better now as to why it’s very hard for us not to fanboy out about it. It’s great beneficial ingredients. Grass-fed, pasture-raised, hormone-free. No added additives. Third-party tested. The global success rates are pretty amazing, too. It’s just an overall really, really great supplement.
And what makes things even better is the price. Not only is it very, very competitive when compared to its most capable rivals. No, it’s arguably the best price we’ll find for equal quality Collagen anywhere.
As for some last words, Matiss would like to share a few. Overall, I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. In the past, I haven’t really been too big of a fan of LiveWell (soon to be Live Conscious). I mean, I first encountered the brand a while back when I was all focused on researching multivitamins.
And at that time, I wasn’t impressed with their attempt at providing the foundational vitamins and minerals at all.
But their Collagen is truly on a whole different level. Honestly, this may quite possibly be the very, very best Collagen supplement currently out there. Plus, read the philosophy behind that brand name change (nothing else changes, by the way). It’s exactly what I feel and what I want to support. Do you?
Above all, I hope this Live Conscious (Live Well) Collagen Peptides review helped you find the information you were looking for. What do you think is this one’s biggest strength? What is your favorite aspect of it? Let us know below.
