Orgain Collagen Peptides is an okay quality supplement the biggest strength of which is its pricing. While it offers in-house testing for reassuring purity and Grass-Fed, Pasture-Raised sourcing for greater benefits, it isn’t all ideal.
That’s especially true given that their quality check seems to be sometimes tripping. Then the sourcing also lacks one important characteristic. And the product doesn’t come with any flavor options either. And so, I do point to some clearly better options.

Ranking | Where Does This Bovine Collagen Powder Rank (In 2022)?
Marketing | Hair, Skin, Nail, And Joint Health Are The Primary Goal
According to the manufacturer, Orgain Collagen Peptides is made for both men and women. Per their words, among numerous health benefits, this product also is odorless and tasteless. Moreover, it is said to be easy to add to our daily routine and to mix with cold and hot liquids effortlessly.
The product page itself reminds me heavily of supplements like the Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides (review) and the Naturelo Collagen (review).
Meaning, this Collagen supplement follows the notion of keeping it tight, brief, and 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%. This one comes with free shipping and somewhat of a money-back guarantee.
Plus, there is a section full of overwhelmingly positive Orgain Collagen Peptides reviews. Basically, all of these attest to the beneficialness for our hair, skin, nails, bones, and joint health.
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 is still one of the visually best-looking Collagen supplements I’ve ever encountered (I liked it previously a bit more but it still looks very good).
So, the marketing materials paint a very captivating picture of the product. But is it truly as value-providing as it used to be gorgeous visually?
Ingredients | Orgain Collagen Peptides Supplement Is Decently Abundant
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. Whereas others more provide just Collagen and nothing else.
The Collagen Peptides of Orgain product identifies itself with the very last of these groups.
Per serving, it offers 20 grams of Grass-Fed, Pasture-Raised Collagen Peptides with nothing more to add. Hence, simple and straightforward.
To that end, it heavily reminds 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.
And then, if 20 grams is not really your jam, since it is a powder, you can adjust it however you want. It’s a definite upside for the powders just in general. They add plenty of flexibility to the table.
On a side note, 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. Especially, 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 of 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. And that is awesome.
Side Effects | This Product Chooses To Go Without Any Additives
Side effects are typically the product of additives. But many people are quite oblivious or even ignorant about what kind of additives a supplement has. Per their thinking, those don’t matter.
I mean, 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. And there’s a ton of proof out there that shows just 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 the 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 one. And 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 (do note that Collagen itself can cause stomach distress for some select few people) [R, R, R, R].
Reviews | I Actually Expected Better Customer Feedback But It Is Fine
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 sites like Amazon.
I believe 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 439 ratings they have there at the writing of this article, only 10 are bad (one-star or two-star).
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 very high success rate.
Hence, supposedly, it may give off this vibe that maybe that’s not such a great idea to buy it since there’s plenty of bad comments also. 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 these 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 [R, R, R, R, R, R].
So, it’s not a good vibe for everyone. Still, among the positive feedback, 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.
Pricing | Without A Doubt, This 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 container (22 servings or 44 scoops), the supplement typically costs $23.99. Given that it’s 22 servings, that’s $1.09 per serving. To do the math even further, it costs 54.5 cents for 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 if I had to choose between the two.
But here’s something that absolutely, utterly would destroy Orgain in a one-on-one faceoff. 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 product. Hence, it is like Orgain only better in every way.
Still, that doesn’t take away from the price of Orgain Collagen Peptides being superb one bit. Hence, it only makes sense why no one is complaining about the price when it comes to the customer reviews. 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 more 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 is where the Vital Proteins product clearly excels.
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. No flavored options 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 54.5 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 45 days of Orgain. In other words, it’s either one month or 1.5x 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 then Native Path isn’t actually that different from Orgain.
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 that 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 that price of 54.5 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 the Collagen Peptides of Native Path supplement is so popular right now, that I don’t know. I think that 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 | This Brand’s Shaky Quality Is Probably The Biggest Flaw
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, I’ve said this many times already but 54.5 cents for every 10 grams of Collagen is a really competitive price.
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 that we shouldn’t more than simply consider it. I mean, the idea behind it is really great. But the execution of that idea is what is tripping. Hence, I would be cautious about 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.
