In this Primal Harvest Primal Collagen review (which can just as easily be referred to as the Primal Harvest Collagen Peptides review), we’ll do the truth. Meaning, we’ll go after the truth. And we will not care about anything else.
To make this as comprehensive as possible, we will go through a number of sections. First, we’ll start with the claims and promotional materials. That we will continue with picking apart the beneficial ingredients, and then also often forgotten additives. Lastly, it will be about customer reviews and global success rates to get a proper sense how it’s performing in real life.
The goal here is to create an article so thorough that there would not be a need for you to ever look at another supplement review for this specific thing. Therefore, if there is a section or aspect I haven’t covered but you’re interested in, let me know. And I’ll add that as well.
Primal Harvest Primal Collagen (Peptides) Review – Initial Thoughts & Overview
According to the manufacturer, Primal Harvest Primal Collagen (or Primal Harvest Collagen Peptides) are the “instant mixing ultra premium collagen” that is sourced from “grass-fed beef & packed with amino acids” and “pasture-raised cattle with no antibiotics or added hormones.” So, a decent sounding thing if I can say so myself [R].
Generally speaking, the description page of this heavily reminds me of those for supplements like Further Food Collagen or Ancient Nutrition Multi Collagen Protein. It’s well-structured, very readable, and properly laid out unlike what we’ve seen with the Vim & Vigor Collagen. Furthermore, while it does have a lot information, it doesn’t feel ovewhelming like those for Organixx Clean Sourced Collagens or Ideal Collagen.
They do promise it will bring quite a few benefits to the table. It’s said to make for a healthier and glowing-looking skin, healthier joints and bones, healthier hair and nails, and helps foster gut and liver health. Which is pretty much what we regularly get promised when it comes to Collagen supplements. That’s except the last one which is a bit more rare.
Other than that, the supplement is said to use the Solugel technology, which is basically about ensuring that the product mixes well with the water. Then there’s the notion of it being Gluten-Free. But arguably the best bit is the fact that the supplement is NSF-certified (which basically approves that the ingredients it contains are quality and free of contaminents) [R, R].
Or at least so I thought. It turns out what while they may claim that they are NSF-certified, they are not on the actual NSF-certified list. Which, in essence, means that they probably have been holding this certification in the past but they don’t have it anymore. And that’s not the same as being up-to-date with it. Because for all we know, they may no longer be creating supplements worthy enough for that certification. Which definitely casts a shadow on their supposedly “ultra premium Collagen” [R, R, R, R, R].
Other than that, I’m a big fan of the visual apperance of the Primal Harvest Primal Collagen supplement. At least in my mind, it’s one of the best looking supplements, definitely among Collagen ones.
At the end of the day though, is it actually, objectively, truly worth the investment despite all the marketing tactics used like 90-day money-back guarantee, the more we buy – the more we save, customer reviews and testimonials, and other?
The Core Ingredients Supposedly Go Further Than What We’ve Encountered By Most
There are many Collagen supplements out there like It Works! CollagenWorks or Pure Gold Collagen that apart from offering Collagen also adds a variety of vitamins and minerals to improve the overall benefits. However, these Collagen Peptides of Primal Harvest is not that kind of supplement. It’s more like those by LiveWell or Nature’s Truth.
Namely, per a single scoop, the supplement offers 10 grams of Hydrolyzed Bovine Collagen without any other beneficial additions (we also get the typical amino acid profile to explore). This is the exact amount and approach other supplements like Amandean Marine Collagen and Code Age Multi Collagen Peptides Chocolate use.
So, is this decent to ensure all of the promised benefits?
I’d like to believe so. I mean, generally speaking, it should be enough. Ideally, of course, we can’t argue that twice the amount that comes with supplements like Garden of Life Collagen Peptides or Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides isn’t better and hence, likely more beneficial. However, I would never fault 10 grams. It’s about the amount that a number of studies have used to prove Collagen’s efficacy. Furthermore, we can always double-scoop [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Speaking of the Collagen itself, it’s said to be “certified grass-fed and pasture-raised bovine” which is beyond what most manufacturers offer. I mean, for most, we just kind of have to trust the claims that it’s been grass-fed and pasture-raised as they don’t really have any third-party proof. Whereas this Primal Harvest Primal Collagen goes that extra step. At least supposedly [R].
I mean, I’m not completely sure how legit the certification is as they are not clearly identifying who exactly approved them. Still, as I’ve said, it’s more than what most offer (here Vitauthority Multi Collagen, Health Direct AminoSculpt Collagen and NeoCell Super Collagen are just a few examples) [R].
How Does This Primal Harvest Do With Additives? Any Good?
Additives is probably the most underappreciated aspect of any supplement. So few ever pay attention to those. But as it has been proven with substances like High-Fructose Corn Syrup and Artificial Colors, they can extremely detrimental, especially in the long run [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
So, it’s really a choice either be mindful and fully aware of what kind of additives our supplements contain or just make sure they don’t have any. Last of which is very rarely possible.
So, what’s the story here? How well does the Primal Harvest Primal Collagen hold up to this?
Well, quite well, in fact. It’s the same story that we found to be the case for supplements like Physician’s Choice Collagen Peptides or Vitauthority Multi Collagen Protein. Or in other words, it’s completely free of any additives or other added similar ingredients.
Hence, it’s every reason for benefits and effectively no real concern for side-effects.
