According to the Orgain Collagen Peptides reviews, we can find many people to whom this is their favorite Collagen after trying many.
Many people adore its price and physical characteristics like the fact that it dissolves easily while also being tasteless and odorless. Others are excited about it being of massive help to their hair, skin, and nails. Whereas others more were pleasantly surprised about it helping even their bones and joints.
So, in this Orgain Collagen Peptides review, we will go through every little intricacy and aspect to bring a complete and full understanding of it.
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 by assessing marketing, ingredients, side effects (additives), customer feedback, and pricing. We’ll do it the truth-seeking way.
Marketing | Hair, Skin, Nail, Joint Health Are Its Primary Goal
According to the manufacturer, Orgain Collagen Peptides is “great for both men and women.” Per their words, the “Grass-Fed, Pasture Raised Collagen Peptides Powder supports hair, skin, nails and joint health.” Furthermore, “because it is odorless and tasteless, it mixes easily into any hot or cold liquid. You can easily add a scoop into your daily routine.” And that pretty much sums up both the entire page and the range of health claims they go for [R].
Meaning, Orgain Collagen Peptides follows this notion of keeping it tight, brief, without information overload.
That said, it does, however, take advantage of many marketing tactics commonly used. They offer an option to subscribe and save 25%. It goes with free shipping and somewhat of a money-back guarantee. Plus, there are overwhelmingly positive reviews.
As for free-of claims, the product promises to be Non-GMO, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free, and without Artificial Preservatives, Colors, or Flavors.
Other than that, I think the supplement of this review used to be one of the best-looking Collagen supplements I’ve ever encountered. But with that new packaging, it feels a little bit too saturated for my taste. Still, that doesn’t affect the quality of the thing.
So, is this a good buy? Is it as value-providing as it used to be gorgeous visually?
Ingredients | The Core Protein Is Decently Abundant With This Supplement
A lot of different approaches exist for Collagen supplements. Some Collagen supplements tend to overkill providing not only the protein but also a bunch of (typically low-quality) vitamins and minerals. Others tend to limit themselves to just one or two extra substances. Others more provide just Collagen, namely, the most straightforward and simple approach.
Per serving, it offers 10 grams of Grass-Fed, Pasture-Raised Collagen Peptides with nothing more to add. Hence, simple and straightforward.
To that end, it used to heavily remind me of such truly dosage-viable brands like the Nature’s Truth Ultra Collagen Complex (review) and the Bubs Naturals Collagen Protein (review). Both of those go by 20 grams of Collagen per serving. And that’s something I feel we can’t ever go wrong with.
But since somewhat of a remake, it is no longer the approach that Orgain takes. And I don’t get why that is. It used to be 20 grams. And it was great. Now, they do just the regular, typical 10 grams. Which is still more than fine, generally speaking. However, I really don’t get that change [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
But regardless of that, we can always adjust it how we need it because it’s a powder and it’s flexible like that.
Other than that, to me, that’s somewhat of a joke that there are supplements like the RejuviCare Super Collagen (review) or Nature’s Truth Multi Collagen Complex (review) that commonly offer 1-2 grams of the protein while also implying the full range of benefits. Which is just not likely to happen. To that extent, 10 grams are so much better [R, R, R, R].
As for sourcing, Grass-Fed and Pasture-Raised are great. But what we would really also want is Hormone-Free. Because the two former don’t actually imply the latter. In other words, the sourcing is good but it could be even better [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
As for the quality with the Orgain Collagen Peptides, it’s not the upper echelon third-party-testing-embracing type of thing. However, it does feel quite decent in that respect nonetheless. They seem to be pretty devoted to making it always about Organic and Non-GMO ingredients. Which is good. Plus, from what I gather, they are also in-house testing the ingredients which is awesome.
Side Effects | To Review Additives, Orgain Collagen Peptides Is Superb
Many people are quite oblivious or even ignorant towards what kind of additives a supplement has. Per their thinking, those don’t matter. Sure, they may not matter as much if we’re planning to use a certain supplement only for a short amount of time. But anywhere upwards of 1-2 months, I’d say it matters greatly. There’s a ton of proof out there for that [R, R, R, R, R, R].
So, where do these Collagen Peptides of Orgain stand in this regard?
Well, it doesn’t do any worse than supplements like the Landish Marine Collagen (review) or Bulletproof Collagen Protein (review). Meaning, this one doesn’t use any additives at all. Which is something most supplement types can’t say about themselves at all.
For example, we’ll never find a decent multivitamin supplement that can do without a single additive. The same typically goes for Fish Oils, vitamin D supplements, Probiotics, and a plethora of other types of supplements.
However, every once in a while there is a type that can actually manage (to do without additives). Collagen supplements are such a thing, MCT Oils are another, Carotenoid supplements are one more.
So, Orgain Collagen Peptides is kind of all about letting us enjoy the benefits of the protein without any extra stuff, at all. And hence, no real worries or concerns as far as side effects go (Collagen itself can cause stomach distress for some select few people) [R, R, R, R].
Reviews | Customer Feedback Isn’t Nearly What I Expected
I’ve always seen it as a worthwhile thing to devote some time to exploring customer reviews and global success rates. Not that I believe that they are an accurate representation of how useful a supplement is. No, there are just too many ways how these can be influenced without them being genuine or the truth. Furthermore, there even are companies that one can pay to boost a manufacturer’s ranking on Amazon.
It’s just that I think this section as a whole gives another perspective on the supplement. Hence, a more thorough look overall if you will.
So, if we’re looking strictly at the Orgain Collagen Peptides reviews on its product page, they feel highly biased. This is because of the 275 ratings they have there at the writing of this article, only two are bad. All others are either three-star or higher.
Meaning, it’s likely that these get edited and adjusted to fit the manufacturer’s needs better. And so, they are terribly unuseful for us (the near 100% success rate is just not something that happens naturally no matter how great a product is).
To fix that to an extent, I looked at every single real customer review for the supplement I could find by all third-party sellers and retailers. And I found quite a bit.
In total, I managed to scramble together 2,363 Orgain Collagen Peptides reviews, the success rate of which was nowhere near as amazing as that on their product page. Namely, I found 215 one-star ones, 132 two-star ones, 183 three-star ones, 263 four-star ones, and 1,570 five-star ones. Hence, a total of 347 negative ratings and 2,016 positive ones.
And I bet you can already tell that the global success rate isn’t nearly as high.
It’s actually 85.3%. Granted, the actual approval rate is likely to be higher given that people generally tend to report negative experiences far more often than positive ones. But still… That’s not a high success rate. It should be considered average at best.
Hence, supposedly, probably giving off this vibe that the whole idea of buying Orgain Collagen Peptides is pretty bad. But that’s the potential danger and harm of customer feedback in general. It isn’t always accurate. It doesn’t always reflect perfectly the helpfulness of a supplement.
That said, it seems that based on that negative customer feedback for the Orgain Collagen, it’s one of two things.
First, it’s either that their in-house testing is tripping at times. Or, second, it’s just a product of storing those supplements poorly which Amazon warehouses are, I feel, almost famous for. Still, some people point to high lead and mercury content which I believe does explain a number of the negative side effects people have reported. Needless to say, that’s not a good vibe at all [R, R, R, R, R, R].
Pricing | Without A Doubt, The Orgain Is Very Competitively Priced
While looking through the negative Orgain Collagen Peptides reviews, I didn’t really find anyone who was complaining about the supplement being expensive. Would it then mean that it’s a bargain or just generally a good bang for the buck? Here’s some math to get to the bottom of that.
So, per serving (one scoop), the supplement of this review typically costs $22.49. That’s a price for a container of 45 servings. In other words, that’s $0.50. And given that it’s 10 grams of Collagen per serving, 50.0 cents is what it costs per every 10 grams of Bovine Collagen.
And let me just say that that’s a bonkers good price.
Here’s to compare that to something like the Zhou Collagen Peptides (review). Zhou costs typically $27.99 per container. A container of that one comes with 46 servings of 11 grams of Collagen each. Hence, if we do the math, that’s 55.3 cents for every 10 grams of Bovine Collagen.
Thus, the Orgain is slightly cheaper. Zhou also doesn’t use additives and third-party testing but it does have Hormone-Free sourcing. Overall, it’s a very similar supplement. I mean, even its negative customer feedback comes with similar snags (but the success rate is higher). Still, as far as quality, Zhou feels better.
And to that end, personally, I would stick with Zhou between the two.
But here’s something that absolutely, utterly would destroy Orgain in a duel. Live Conscious Collagen Peptides (review). Not only is Live Conscious third-party tested over the Orgain but it’s also essentially the exact same price. Zero additives, Non-GMO. Hormone-Free. Everything we would ever want from a Collagen. Hence, it is like Orgain only better in every way.
Either way, overall, I know why no one is complaining about the price in the customer reviews of Orgain Collagen Peptides. It’s because the price is, indeed, a very competitive one.

Comparisons | Price Seems To Be Its Strongest Suit
Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides Vs Orgain Collagen Peptides
Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides (review) is a really popular Bovine Collagen supplement these days. Many people prefer it over the other brands. Many people praise it for its quality. But that quality does come with a pretty high price tag as well.
And that’s probably where these two supplements differ the most.
I mean, the Collagen Peptides of Vital Proteins takes no compromises and goes for upper-class quality every time. Whereas Orgain feels a lot less down-to-earth and a lot less calculated in what it offers.
So, both of them don’t use any additives. Which is good. Both have good success rates. Which is good. But these are just about the only aspects that could be considered even.
When it comes to beneficial ingredients, I like Vital Proteins a lot more. I mean, Orgain’s Grass-Fed, Pasture-Raised Collagen is great but that Hormone-Free on top with the Vital Proteins is just better.
And then, Vital Proteins version of things also outclasses in terms of quality because they third-party test it. Whereas Orgain just in-house tests it. And then, Vital Proteins also offers Hyaluronic Acid to the mix. Orgain doesn’t have that. Plus, Vital Proteins comes with flavored options (none for Orgain).
So, that’s kind of where both of these are at. But the price makes all the difference.
You see, Vital Proteins costs typically 82.0 cents versus Orgain’s 50.0 for every 10 grams of Collagen. To put that, into perspective, for the same price, it’s either one month (10 grams a day) of Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides or 49 days of Orgain. In other words, it’s either one month or about 1.5 months of supply, respectively.
And that’s just a massive difference.
Still, personally, I don’t feel that saving on quality with the Orgain is worth it. I mean, it’s still decent if we can’t afford the higher-priced option. But if we can afford it, it has so much more potential to deliver on skin, hair, and nail health. Vital Proteins is just better.
Native Path Collagen Vs Orgain Collagen Peptides
To be honest, the Native Path Collagen (review) seems to be hottest than the Vital Proteins one right now. Many people are really swearing by it. And some even have called it life-changing. But Orgain Collagen is actually very similar.
I mean, in terms of specs alone, these two are extremely the same. They are very, very close.
So, the Native Path offers Grass-Fed, Pasture-Raised Collagen whilst lacking the claim for Hormone-Free. So, too does the Orgain option.
The success rates on both are similar. Whereas when it comes to additives, Orgain has none. Whereas Native Path offers a couple of different, viable options while also having an unflavored one for people who prefer that.
So, indeed, these two products are basically the same. But where the difference lies is pricing. And, boy, what a difference there is.
I mean, even the unflavored Native Path Collagen costs $1.04 for every 10 grams of Bovine Collagen. For flavored options, the price is even higher. But with the Orgain, we have a price of 50.0 cents for every 10 grams.
This basically means that for every month of supply of Native Path, the alternative is two months’ worth of Orgain. Which is a ridiculous difference if you ask me.
I mean, it’s basically the same product. Orgain is just half the price. And that’s something I would absolutely go for if the choice had to be made between these two supplements alone.
As for why Collagen Peptides of Native Path supplement is so popular right now, well… It’s just proof that marketing means a lot. One can get a lot done with proper marketing even if they don’t have the best product.
Even if that product is, frankly, quite average overall, and there are others that offer the same but at a significantly lower price.
Overall | The Brand’s Approach To These Collagen Peptides Is Shaky
The core idea behind Orgain’s Collagen Peptides is seemingly very solid. Grass-Fed, Pasture-Raised bovine as their Collagen source, decent amounts of the protein, and no additives to contribute to the uncertainty of side effects. It’s also Non-GMO, free of Gluten, Soy, and Dairy.
And then, frankly, the success rates aren’t that bad either. I mean, sure, they could be higher but it’s still fine. Now, one thing that it does excel at is the pricing aspect. I mean, 50.0 cents for every 10 grams of Collagen is a really competitive bargain.
So, there are many positives. But it isn’t all positive. I mean, the manufacturing quality despite in-house testing is definitely a flaw. To that end, it underdelivers for sure. And I am a bit concerned.
Third-party testing would fix that. But Orgain Collagen Peptides don’t have that. I feel they should though.
As for other flaws, the fact that Collagen isn’t Hormone-Free is also bad. I mean, this typically means that Antibiotics are given to cows only through winter but still. It isn’t ideal.
Hence, (out of avoid it, consider it, shortlist it, but it) I believe we should just categorize this as something to consider. I mean, the idea behind it is really great. But the execution of that idea is what is tripping. Hence, I would be cautious in investing in it.
Other than that, if you’re interested in something of genuine quality, I would recommend going with what I believe is the most superior Collagen out there. Here’s my full review with a summary of it.
Above all, I hope this Orgain Collagen Peptides 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.
