In this Olly Collagen Peptides review, we will shed a very bright light on the supplement. We will discuss every aspect imaginable.
First, we’ll start off with an analysis of the promotional materials. That we will continue by looking at the beneficial ingredients and what they have the potential to offer. Third, we’ll do it about the additives. Fourth, we’ll discuss and assess customer reviews and global success rates. Fifth, we’ll spend a few on the price as well.
The Promotional Side Of Olly Collagen Makes It Look Really Great
According to the manufacturer, Olly Collagen Peptides is the “multi-tasking superstar [..] essential for that beautiful glow we all long for. It’s also a key protein throughout our entire body so there are many benefits to our health—resilient skin, strong nails & healthy hair, just to name a few.* We’ll drink to that!” A massively helpful supplement from what it seems while also carrying a very upbeat kind of vibe [R].
Still, despite all that hype, it’s said to be capable of supporting just glowing, healthy, strong skin, hair & nails. Which is kind of a standard when it comes to all Collagen supplements.
I mean, just about any other product being primarily about the protein will promise the same thing. Dr. Emil Multi Collagen (review), Perfotek Collagen (review), and Nutra Organics Collagen (review) are just a few examples of that.
So, I mean, very powerful and quite captivating first words. But then, it doesn’t seem to be more capable than the average thing.
With the Olly Collagen Peptides, the product page itself is a classic Olly very much like its siblings of Glowing Skin (review) and Vitamins Kids (review). It’s very readable, quite spacious, not overwhelming in any way.
As for the marketing, there are a few bits. They offer free shipping over orders of $50. There is a 30-day money-back guarantee. There’s also 15% off if we order a whole box (three) right off the bat. And, of course, a customer review section which has plenty of great reviews.
Are these Collagen Peptides of Olly Nutrition truly worth it though?
What About The Collagen Peptides Sourcing? Very Likely Poor
As far as just the beneficial ingredients, it certainly seems so. The Olly Collagen Peptides doesn’t do that miserable-pathetic type of approach we’ve seen with other supplements of the brand, like Olly Women’s Multi (review) or their Undeniable Beauty (review).
So, with the supplement of this review, per serving, we get 10 grams of bovine hide Collagen Peptides. Which from a purely amounts perspective is decent. And thus, it does seem to be something that can deliver on those three core benefits that they persist on through their promotional materials [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Well, because if we look at the product page there is not a single statement or any sort of claim that this Collagen is of Grass-Fed, Pasture-Raised animals. And hence, if there isn’t such a thing, the Olly Collagen Peptides is likely not sourced that way. Which is very, very far from the ideal, to say the least [R, R, R, R, R].
I mean, the protein from those likely Corn-Fed, Pasture-Deprived, Over-Hormoned cows just doesn’t have the capacity for promoting wellness that properly-sourced Collagen does. Which is kind of a huuuuuge shadow over the Collagen of Olly.
I mean, why would we ever consider a product with such a high probability of being poorly sourced?
We shouldn’t, ever. There are just too many quality options available that not only match the price but even outrival it. Live Conscious (LiveWell) Collagen Peptides (full review) being just one great example of that.
It’s Sad With Additives, There Are Likely GMOs Among Them
Typically, Olly hasn’t been the greatest supplements when it comes to additives. They usually oversugar things. But this time it seems they have refrained from doing that. But despite that, I believe this Olly Collagen is in the same village with stuff like NeoCell Beauty Bursts (review) and Vim & Vigor Collagen (review). The village of “likely not that great additives.”
So, what does the supplement of this review use?
They go with Natural Flavors.
Many consider that to not be a bad thing. But, in reality, it all depends on manufacturing. While I have been very wary of that in the past, it seems to me, currently, that they are actually doing a pretty good job [R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
All that said, there is one other thing that bothers me a bit.
You see, any Natural Flavor is a mixture of a number of different substances. All of which are not necessarily good for us. I mean, they can be, and thus, a flavor of such sorts can even be considered slightly beneficial. However, given that they do not make a single claim or have a third-party certification for the Olly Collagen to be Non-GMO, it might actually contain such ingredients [R, R, R, R, R].
Again, we can’t know, for sure. This is just a speculation of what I feel is the most likely. But if it’s true, then also the additive part of the supplement is far from ideal. And hence, another potential reason why to give this one a pass.
Coming To Customer Reviews, Not A Single One To Be Found, Almost
Now, shifting the gears a little bit, how well does the Olly Collagen Peptides work in the real-life? While we can’t assess this with an objective 100% accuracy, we can still look at the customer reviews and see what we can learn from those.
Like many other Collagen brands out there, like Skinny Fit Super Youth (review) or Physician’s Choice Collagen Peptides (review), also the product of this review has a customer review section on its product page. And the reviews there are mostly good.
We get a default preview of the 5-star ones, obviously. There are actually some bad ones as well. Out of the total of 26, three of them were 1-star or 2-star. Which is not as one-sided as we’ve seen it to be with supplements like Code Age Multi Collagen (review) or LAC Taut Collagen (review).
Either way, it doesn’t still give any proper insight into the truth. Especially because these are something that can be easily manipulated by the manufacturer.
So, I did some research across the internet for Olly Collagen Peptides reviews.
This time I wasn’t as surprised as I was about half a year ago when all that I managed to find was just two 5-star reviews of the thing. Today, there are not that many more but, to some extent, we do get a better picture with where this is going.
So, in total, I came across 36 Olly Collagen Peptides reviews. There was one 1-star one, five 2-stars, three 3-star ones, six 4-star, and 21 of the 5-star. In other words, there were six negative ones and 30 positives. Hence, a global success rate of 83.3%. Which I believe is still something ridiculously high for how poor the Collagen sourcing likely is.
On that note, it is probably too early to tell for sure since there are only 36 reviews out there. I mean, we should have at least a 100 to be way more accurate. But I think this does give a pretty good idea. And what’s more, it also illustrates perfectly the common problem with looking at just customer reviews when shopping for a supplement.
Typically, any product no matter how low-quality often still has something to bring to the table. And so, trusting the most of the time innocently ignorant supplement reviews can create this false impression that it’s a good product when, in truth, it’s actually near that.
I mean, the Olly Collagen Peptides could have a 99.9% global success rate and I would still not buy it. Because the Collagen sourcing is just likely too bad.
And no review can ever change that.
The Supplement Is Not Great But The Pricing Is Just Ridiculous
So, while it may be a little too early to say for sure what the total success rate of the Olly Collagen Peptides reviews is, here’s one thing it isn’t too early for. It isn’t too early to realize that the supplement of this review is an expensive one. Like disproportionally expensive for what it provides.
So, the product typically costs $24.99 per container. A single container holds just 20 servings. Each serving is 10 grams or 10,000 milligrams of Collagen. Thus, it is about $1.25 per serving. Which is also the cost for every 10 grams of the protein. Or it’s 12.5 cents per gram. And here’s how it compares.
Something like the Zhou Collagen Peptides (review) cost typically $27.99 per 46 servings. So, it’s $0.61 per serving, each serving is 11 grams of Collagen. Hence, that’s 5.5 cents per every gram of the protein.
That’s less than half the price that Olly comes for. What’s more, Zhou also offers Grass-Fed, Pasture-Raised, Hormone-Free Collagen, the kind of Collagen that we actually want. And they do in-house testing on their products.
Hence, not only there’s a huge gap between the prices, but also that’s a massive difference in quality.
Now, compare the Olly to something like the Live Conscious Collagen Peptides (review), and the picture isn’t any prettier. Typically the Live Conscious will cost about 6.0 cents per gram of Collagen but not only does it offer all of the Zhou’s quality, but also it does third-party testing on their products.
Now, would you care to agree that Olly Collagen Peptides is a ridiculously overpriced, low-quality, avoidable attempt?
To Finish The Review, This Olly Is Definitely To Avoid, Waste Of Time
Here’s my final assessment of the Olly Collagen Peptides. It’s an expensive, likely poorly-sourced Collagen supplement with potentially GMO-containing additives and realistically barely any record of being helpful to people.
Is that something we should buy?
God no! Avoid this one. The way I see it it’s an absolute waste of time.
If you are after a great Collagen supplement, I believe the Live Conscious (LiveWell) Collagen Peptides (full review with a summary) is one of the best if not the very best currently available. And that’s both in terms of the price and the quality it brings to the table.
So, be sure to check that out. And let me know what you think.
Above all, I hope this Olly Collagen Peptides review helped you find the information you were looking for. Have you been compelled by Olly before?
