Throughout this 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, the potential benefits, additives, customer reviews, and last of all, we will also look into the global success rates.
The true goal here is to make the most insightful piece of content around (and thus, help save time for research). And so, 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.
One Of The Most Pleasant Collagen Supplement Pages I’ve Visited
According to the manufacturer, LiveWell Collagen Peptides “are sourced from grass-fed, pasture-raised, Grade A bovine, and are certified hormone-free and 100% non-GMO.” But other than that, it’s part of a rather unconventional trend emerging among a couple of Collagen supplements [R].
This trend of having two description pages per single product. While there are those that, essentially, kind of meaninglessly play around with that like PureNature Collagen Ultra or LAC Taut Collagen, there are also those that use this notion somewhat skillfully like Organixx Collagen; namely, they complement the main page. Which is also the case with this LiveWell [R, R].
Overall, there’s a lot of great information here. And amidst that, they have managed to keep it cool, light, lucid. I mean, as far as Collagen supplement description pages go, this is one of my favorite ones.
Still, we do get some marketing as well. There are the 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 to their service and save even more. They also offer a 365-day money-back guarantee.
Lastly, there are customer reviews that are so far from what we’ve seen with supplements like Ancient Nutrition Multi Collagen Protein or Amandean Marine Collagen (more on that later). But all of it, as I mentioned, feels light and even welcome. For all, I can say, a truly well-structured page.
As for the promised benefits, they list quite many. First, there’s this, “Containing 20 amino acids, 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].
Then there’s also this on their second page, “Support Bone and Joint Health, Encourage Muscle Mass, Boost Gut Health, Strengthen Immune Function, Strengthen Hair & Nails, Promote Skin Elasticity.” Which for the much of it regurgitates the previous quote. But regardless, quite a bit of potential benefits [R].
Other than that, there are promises to being Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Preservative-Free, and Soy-Free.
Looks good, eh?
Likely A Truly High-Quality Collagen; And It’s Third-Party Tested
Not every Collagen supplement is like the next one. Obviously, there’s a lot of wiggle room here, but what I’m specifically referring to is how they’re formulated. Namely, there are at least three clearly identifiable approaches.
First, there are those that provide only Collagen and don’t bother with anything else. Further Food Collagen and Great Lakes Gelatin Collagen Hydrolysate are great examples of this. 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 or NeoCell Super Collagen + C. Third, these are almost multivitamin-like ones that primarily do Collagen like It Works CollagenWorks or Code Age Multi Collagen.
Of all of these, the 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 I’ve reviewed. No cliches here.
It starts out pretty much the same as any other supplement. It’s 11 grams of Bovine Collagen per a single scoop of the product. Of course, it’s pasture-raised and grass-fed like Ancient Nutrition Multi Collagen, NeoCell Super Collagen, 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 I’m trying to get at here is that Collagen Peptides of LiveWell is massively different in this regard from by far most. Their hormone-free certification.
Honestly, I’ve no idea how legit this is as I’m unaware of any third-party organization that does these. However, I imagine third-party laboratories typically should be able to test that. And LiveWell just like Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides does this kind of testing.
Does This LiveWell Have Any Added Extra 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 like Applied Nutrition Liquid Collagen or Health Direct AminoSculpt Collagen Original. The aspect of additives.
Yeah, it’s a big one despite many trying to downplay the role of them. Truth is there are substances that get used for these that I wouldn’t ever recommend on consuming, even in the tiniest of amounts. Great examples of this are the High-Fructose Corn Syrup and Artificial Colors. With these, cancer-risk is just the beginning [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
So, what about the additives in this Collagen thing of LiveWell?
Just pure Collagen Peptides.
Yeah, not every supplement needs them. And Collagen powders absolutely doesn’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 or NeoCell Marine Collagen).
Hence, There’s nothing to really discuss here for the Peptides of LiveWell. It’s all beneficial without a thought or concern for likely side-effects (allergies can never be ruled out).
The Collagen Peptides Enjoy 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’s quite unconventional.
My point being, there’s no actual section where people can leave their reviews for the thing as we have for supplements like Skinny Fit Youth Collagen, NeoCell Liquid Collagen, or pretty much any Collagen that brings such a section to its website. Instead, we have some kind of selection of customer reviews directly pulled from Amazon.
Which is quite confusing really.
I see it that way because when we open the page, on the top right-hand corner of the screen it says 1788 reviews with an average rating of 4.8 stars. However, when we go to Amazon, there’s about triple the amount of ratings by people.
Also, I haven’t cycled through every single one of those LiveWell Collagen Peptides reviews on their site, but just by the looks of it, it seems that they are all positive. Hence, it appears that they are really only using this section to up-play its positives and convince as many consumers as possible to buy the thing.
Which I get and understand. But I don’t see it as a noble thing to do.
When actually looking at every single real customer review from various retailers and sellers, the picture’s a bit different. Meaning, not everyone has positive to say about the thing. In total, I found 388 negative reviews, almost all of which come from Amazon. That’s out of a total of 5,302 pieces of feedback.
Which does make for a very high global success rate at 92.7%. 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 I can tell from the reviews on Amazon, some have identified that it’s arguably not the same product (probably a fake). Vital Proteins is having the same issue, as well as I remember remotely seeing that with a couple of Turmeric Curcumin and MCT oil supplements as well. Overall, it’s a rather concerning trend that’s emerging with purchasing supplements from this widely known seller.
As Far As I Can Tell, A Great Supplement To Go With; Definitely Short-list-able
So, where does it all leave us with the LiveWell Collagen Peptides?
Well, it’s a great supplement. Great beneficial ingredients. No added additives. Third-party tested. The global success rates are pretty amazing, too. It’s just an overall really great supplement.
That said, the only kind of rock in its garden is when it comes to this notion of “certified hormone-free.” I mean, it’s a great thing assuming that’s true. However, a bit too mysterious they are with what or who has certified them. Which would be awesome if they could clarify.
Overall, I was pleasantly surprised. Still, if it came down to me getting a Collagen supplement, I’m pretty sure I would go with the Garden of Life Collagen (review) while also considering the Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides (review). I think both of these are just better overall.
Above all, I hope this Live Well Collagen Peptides 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!
