Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides Review – A Great Deal?

Marketing  |  Ingredients  |  Additives  |  Reviews  |  Pricing  |  Pros & Cons  |  Overall  |

According to the Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides reviews posted by customers, the notion of flavorless, odorless, tasteless is really impressive with this one.

Some people even go as far as to say that they have not encountered another supplement of this category that is like that, that does it as well as this product. Others are really impressed with the gains this brings. And others more are just in love with how easily it mixes.

So, in this particular review, we’ll have a proper, in-depth look at whether the supplement is a good one.

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 | Better Hair, Skin & Nails Through Whole30 & More

According to the manufacturer, the Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides is a supplement to “help support hair, skin, and nails, and pair perfectly with savory soups, shakes, smoothies, coffee, and even baked goods.” Per their words, they “have sought out highly dissolvable collagen that meets our strict standards for sourcing and processing.” So, plenty to gain from this it seems [R].

Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides ReviewThe product page reminds me of something like the Orgain Collagen Peptides (review) and Bubs Naturals Collagen Protein (review).

Meaning, it feels very laid back while incorporating a list of marketing tactics. But doing it in kind of a subtle way.

So, to persuade people into buying, here we have the option to subscribe and save. Then, we also got a 100% money-back guarantee and a section with Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides reviews by customers. And then, we also got FAQs which is kind of a semi-marketing tool.

As for the benefits, it claims a couple of them. But all of them are what I refer to as the typical ones for Collagens. Meaning, it promises only benefits to hair, skin, and nails. It doesn’t get into all the other stuff the potential of which is there, of course, regardless of what they claim.

And then, one of the most awesome things about these Collagen Peptides of Primal Kitchen is that it comes with a list of certifications. It’s Whole30 approved, Paleo-Friendly, and Keto-Certified, as well as Gluten-Free-Certified. On top of that, it’s also Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Whey-Free, and Grain-Free.

But is it actually worth the investment?

Ingredients | Certifications Actually Mean A Lot For The Supplement

When it comes to Collagen supplements, many different approaches exist. Some believe in sticking with just the Collagen, like the Landish Marine Collagen (review). Other think that it’s best to couple it with a few capable other substances, like the Live Conscious Beyond Collagen (review). Whereas others more go for a kind of multivitamin-like Collagen-incorporated approach, like the Applied Nutrition Liquid Collagen (review).

Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides Ingredients (Supplement Facts)The Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides is a believer in the all-about-Collagen-only approach.

Per serving (one scoop), the supplement of this review contains 11 grams of Bovine Collagen Peptides. Here’s what’s good about them.

First, these Peptides are Grass-Fed and Pastured-Raised. Which is the very least what we want our Bovine Collagen Peptides to be. To that end, another cool thing is that they don’t try to feed the illusion that the cows they source their Collagen from are Grass-Fed throughout all year [RRRRRRRRR].

I love that honesty from the Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides.

Second, 11 grams of Collagen per serving is a very decent, benefit-oriented amount. I mean, that’s an amount that has every reason to be as beneficial as Collagen should be. I mean, improved hair, skin, nail health is for sure. We’re also talking bone, joint, gut health, and a number of others [RRRRRRRRR].

Third, they do in-house testing on their product. Granted, that’s not as great or fancy as third-party testing. But I think it should be decent enough.

Hence, despite the fact that they don’t claim to be Hormone-Free due to them being realistic about the notion of Grass-Fed, I think it’s a solid quality Collagen that Primal Kitchen offers.

Side Effects | To Review Additives, Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides Is Ideal

Additives is a very tricky subject. Although it feels to me like I’ve been talking about this forever, there are still many that pay little to no attention to what additives any given supplement contains. But that’s something very important because not all additives have our best health interest in mind.

For example, we’ve still got supplements like RejuviCare Super Collagen (review) which uses Artificial Colors for the making of its capsules. But that’s something that has shown to be a potent inducer of various cancers. In other words, not something to preferably consume [RRRRRRR].

Glue Ingredients Is What This Does Not HaveAnother example of how not to do it we see with something like the Vim & Vigor Collagenate (review). It’s something that has chosen to use Potassium Sorbate as one of its ingredients. But studies have shown that it’s a substance that can damage white blood cells. Which, in layman’s terms, means that it can cause cancer or DNA damage [RRRRRRRRR].

Again, not an ideal outcome, to say the least.

So, the question is how is Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides doing in that regard?

Well, it takes the often impossible approach to take. It uses no additives at all. Because it can. And because it likely cares about its customers. Hence, it takes the best approach for a Collagen supplement. Which, again, is to go without.

I’m saying that it is not something often possible because we’ll never see that in supplements like multivitamins or B12 supplements. Those supplements require glue ingredients to keep all the beneficial stuff together (hence, additives). But Collagen Powders don’t. That is, unless they choose to. But the Primal Kitchen Collagen doesn’t choose that.

And that I feel is a good thing for any supplement.

Reviews | Customer Feedback For Primal Kitchen Is A Bit Early To Tell

I guess the way I started this Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides review illustrates that there is definitely a ton of positive feedback out there. Furthermore, the fact that it has a total of 479 pieces of customer feedback averaging five stars only further adds to that notion.

Yeah, overwhelmingly and unnaturally positive reviews are kind of a thing these days on manufacturers’ pages. Well, because they are far too well-known to bring more sales and persuade people into buying anything. It’s just how natural human biases work.

Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides ReviewsSo, many including supplements like the Andrew Lessman Marine Collagen (review) and Truvani Marine Collagen (review) I feel take an advantage of that. But we can’t really blame them. It’s just marketing and everyone’s kind of doing it, to be fair.

Therefore, we don’t take those manufacturers’ reviews be it on Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides or any other product into account. We look for those on all third-party sellers and retailers. And that’s exactly what I researched for.

In total, I managed to find only 90 Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides reviews. Of these, just 5 I found to be negative (one-star, two-star). The rest 85 were positive (three-star, four-star, five-star). Hence, while it is definitely too early to tell, for sure, the global success rate is looking pretty incredible. Currently, it’s at 94.4%.

And that’s a genuinely high one for a Collagen product. Still, that does imply that not all were happy with it. So, what was their deal?

Some people complained about it tasting weird, smelling funny, and clunking up terribly. Which might just be a product of storing in suboptimal conditions (which I feel isn’t rare with Amazon warehouses and supplements). Or it might be just a bad batch. Some others were unhappy with the misleading marketing or the product containing fewer servings than it should. But that definitely doesn’t seem to be the norm.

Pricing | As Far As Cost Goes, This Is Easily Some Of The Best Collagens

I did manage to find some Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides reviews that touched the idea of pricing. Actually, it was just a single one. The idea of it was that the supplement of this review is far worse priced than what their marketing is leading people to believe. But is that really the case?

So, the Collagen Peptides of this article typically cost $35.95. But with the subscribe option, we can get it for $31.46. That’s the price of 50 servings per container. To do the math, that’s $0.63 per serving or 57.2 cents for every 10 grams of Bovine Collagen.

This Is Not An Expensive Protein ProductWhich is not bad at all. Very far from that, to tell the truth. Here’s how it compares to some other products.

For example, let’s take the Nature’s Truth Ultra Collagen (review). It’s something that costs typically $16.99 per 30 servings. Each serving is 6.7 grams. Hence, the actual cost of it is 85.0 cents for every 10 grams of Bovine Collagen.

Nature’s Truth is Grass-Fed and Pasture-Raised, just like Primal Kitchen. Nature’s Truth also doesn’t use any additives. And it also doesn’t do third-party testing. And Nature’s Truth doesn’t have any third-party certifications either. Hence, I think Primal Kitchen is just better in every way including the price.

Another one would be to compare it to something like the Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides (review). As far as the math goes, it’s too a bit more expensive. Namely, it costs $21.25 per container, typically. For that, it offers just 14 servings but each of them is 20 grams. Hence, it prices at 75.9 cents for every 10 grams of Collagen.

Now, as far as the quality, yes, Vital Proteins I feel has the edge due to their third-party testing. However, other than that, it’s not that different at all. Grass-Fed, Pasture-Raised Collagen, no additives, and really awesome success rates.

To that end, I believe that by no means is it sane to call Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides an overpriced product. Granted, sure, it isn’t the cheapest product out there. But for the quality it brings, I believe it’s one of the really competitively priced ones. Definitely good value for the price.

Pros & Cons | There Basically Are No Flaws For This Product

Pros Cons
Primal Kitchen is an extremely transparent brand. The product doesn’t have third-party testing.
The supplement has a bunch of different certifications, including Whole30, Keto, and more. Not very many customer reviews to attest to the value of the product.
It doesn’t use any additives.
The supplement of this review is really good in terms of pricing.
The Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides offer good amounts of Collagen per serving.

Overall | Yes, It Is Not Ideal But I Think It’s Still Buyable

I have to say that I’m actually pretty surprised as to how the review turned out for the Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides. To tell the truth, I certainly wasn’t expecting much of this supplement. For some reason, it seemed to me like another one of those “I am a great Collagen product” gimmicks.

But that first impression was so incredibly off.

I Believe This Is A Buyable SupplementI mean, the supplement of this review is everything but a gimmick. It’s actually value stuff. I mean, sure, it doesn’t have third-party testing on it. But that’s about its only flaw. Everything else it has down and pat.

It’s got some awesome sourcing (while also embracing true honesty and transparency) on that Collagen. It offers very capable amounts of the protein per serving. Hence, more than just benefits to hair, skin, and nails are likely. It also doesn’t use any additives. It does in-house testing.

Furthermore, it seems that it has some great track record (success rates) that it still has to build but looking good. And then, the pricing on it is very value-oriented. Very, very good pricing. And on top of all that, it has a couple of different third-party certifications to its name.

Hence, (out of avoid it, consider it, shortlist it, buy it) I believe this Primal Kitchen Collagen is a buyable one. I like it a lot, personally. Sure, there are those what I believe are the even better ones like the Live Conscious Collagen Peptides (full review with a summary). But this is pretty darn awesome as well.

Above all, I hope this Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides review helped you find the information you were looking for. Do you share my fascination for it? Would you buy it? Maybe you’ve already tried it? Let me know below. Also, feel free to leave your own personal reviews on the product.

12 thoughts on “Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides Review – A Great Deal?”

  1. I have read several articles on various collagen supplements, and I’ve also dived into reviews on various other categories of supplements. And I am curious as to which supplement would be the better buy. What I’m trying to ask is whether collagen is the most perspective category for tackling the idea of better hair, skin, and nails, in your opinion?

    I am aware that there’s this thing known as Biotene and Tea Tree oil which can be very helpful with hair and nails. And then, there’s also Karetine which can help skin a lot. Meaning, these feel to me like viable alternatives. But are they, really?

    Also, I really like the price of the Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides. To that end, it’s extremely financially manageable if that makes sense. Have you done any price comparisons with other supplements categories in efforts to try to determine what might be the most cost-efficient solution?

    Any and all insight will be highly appreciated.

    • Hey, Alex!

      For sure, there are all kinds of supplement categories that can aid with hair, skin, and nails. Plus, there are a lot of indirect ways how to boost their health like good food, sleep, and ensuring that we have plenty of the right vitamins and minerals. Managing stress through exercise can also be extremely beneficial. But if we’re speaking strictly supplements, here’s how I see it.

      While it may seem that, to some extent, one substance (like Keratine) can substitute another (like Collagen), they aren’t exactly replacing one another. I mean, yes, they can help achieve the same thing but they do so through different mediums. Namely, imagine there are like 10 potential roads to a solution. Typically, each supplement category would then be a separate road to try to solve the problem.

      This means two things.

      First, not every road will take you there. Some may only take you about halfway or no way at all in fixing or just improving that hair, skin, and nail health. Because roadblocks happen. And sometimes when it seems that a particular road will take us to solve the problem, it actually misses it. Because there are some other underlying issues that have to be addressed first.

      Second, all those separate roads compound. Meaning, if we choose to use more than one approach, there are even higher chances that we will actually find what we seek. To that end, I wouldn’t say that the supplements necessarily compete with one another. They complement each other.

      But if I had to point to what is the most capable in this regard, I believe that going for Collagen is one of the best ways to boost one’s hair, skin, and nail health. That is, other than ensuring that we have all the right vitamins and minerals in our diet already.

      I haven’t done any such case studies yet. But I will be looking into it. I appreciate the idea. :)


  2. I also like the idea of odorless, flavorless, and tasteless collagen, as I have tried a few different collagen powders, and even though they say tasteless, I can still often taste them. This is a thorough and honest review, and so far one of the better brands that you have written about. I like how much it makes it about quality given its third-party testing and everything.

    Based on everything that this supplement is, I wouldn’t be surprised that its success rates steadily but surely raised even beyond the current 94.4%. Either way, I think that’s a great satisfaction rate. Not a lot of supplements get that. And even fewer collagen products do. And while I do agree that it isn’t everything, it definitely signals one or two things about the overall vibe of the supplement. And it’s great.

    It is always good to do your homework first on any supplements you are taking or plan on buying. Because, frankly, you don’t want to be wasting money on a product that isn’t working, that doesn’t fit your preference, or that is doing you more harm than good. To this end, I do believe that the Primal Kitchen Collagen looks like something that people can safely take their chances with. I sure will.

    • Hey, Michel!

      I really appreciate the kind words. And, yeah, I think you couldn’t be more on point. In fact, as far as my research goes, this is, indeed, one of the best Collagen supplements out there. Now, given that the competition in the Collagen category is extremely fierce, it doesn’t land in the top 5, currently. However, it’s easily among the top 10.

      We’ll definitely see how the success rates work out but I agree. I wouldn’t be surprised either if it had an upward trend.


  3. I’ve never personally looked too much into collagen peptides, but now I’m convinced that it’s a great supplement to be taking. Not sure if I would go with Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides even though you think it’s still buyable. The biggest problem I have is that there just aren’t very many customer reviews to kind of prove it that it’s worth the while.

    For me, customer feedback is so important. I agree with you that it can be tricky since there are so many different marketing tactics that manufacturers can do to improve the feedback they are getting anywhere. For example, I’ve encountered supplements in the past that had very high approval rates because the manufacturer gave free products if any given person left a great review on another platform.

    However, I am convinced that if there are any significant problems with quality, then customer reviews should be able to point to them. And those are the invaluable insights we can’t be getting any way else. At least, not to my knowledge.

    On that note, I think I will probably stick with the other more trustable brand that you suggested at the moment. However, thanks for this detailed review! Great post!

    • Hey, Vizanne!

      I feel you. Yes, the Primal Kitchen Collagen is pretty great. But there are better options out there still.

      As far as reviews, that’s actually very interesting. I’ve too encountered that with at least a couple of supplements. And some manufacturers really seem to be pursuing such tactics to ensure more sales. Not sure if I agree with tactics like that but they do need to sell. However, for truth-seeking purposes, reviews like that are often absolutely useless.

      But I think that the biggest problem is that there sometimes are no effective ways of discerning between the two.

      That’s a fair point, reviews can often provide insights that we couldn’t be able to just acquire otherwise. And those are really helpful. Which is kind of exactly why I have chosen to add such a section to the reviews that I do.

      I appreciate the kind words. :)


  4. The product you reviewed appears to be a good one. I do think that taking a collagen supplement is a good idea. I was watching to see if you mentioned the one I take. It’s called Vital Three, and it is from Bronson Labs. I take my three drops every morning right after I get up in just a little water. Odorless, tasteless… Then, you are supposed to wait 10 minutes before putting anything else in your stomach.

    I think taking collagen is a good idea, and hope you find some folks with your review who need a collagen product.

    Thinking of the review itself, it’s great that you also explore the other options, especially when it comes to pricing. I think it can make all the difference. I would never want a great product if I had to pay 5x of what it should be priced. In that regard, it’s kind of always about whether or not it is a good value.

    And as far as the Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides goes, it does seem to be that way.

    • Hey, Fran!

      Yeah, I do believe that, too. Collagen supplements can be extremely helpful. For skin. For nails. For hair. For joints. And for anti-aging purposes as well. Plus, there’s literally like no food or medicine alternative to make that happen with Collagen.

      I can look into that Bronson Labs Vital Three product if you would like that. Let me know here or by e-mail. :)

      And I absolutely agree with that. There is no point in a truly, remarkably, genuinely great product in every way if it costs more than what is reasonable to ask for such a thing. I mean, because it just kind of defeats the purpose of it. But to make matters worse, it definitely is not rare. Some manufacturers just like to really balloon their prices. Huge profit margins I guess.

      But customers are left with very little value for their money. And sometimes that is extremely hard to kind of realize and really conceptualize. Because a product can be supposedly priced reasonably (costing about the same as similar supplements of the category) but then, end up offering significantly less value than their rivals.

      I don’t want to name any brands. But do know that there are out there.


  5. When they say that the Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides support skin, hair, and nails, does it mean it actually strengthens them? Can you grow back hair lost? Does it help when you have fungus on your toenails? Anyway, it appears to be an awesome collagen peptide. How long do you need to use it in order to see results? And after that, do you need to keep using it?

    I’m asking all these questions because I’m seriously considering adding a Collagen to my daily routine. Primal Kitchen was a brand suggested to me by one of my friends. But I thought that I should really look into it before making a purchasing decision. 

    Other than that, I will have to look at what additives are my current supplements using as I’ve never actually given these much of a thought. But the examples you gave were the perfect reason why I should be. I guess supplements are a tricky thing. So much to learn.

    • Hey, Jerry!

      Well, naturally, our skin, hair, and nails contain high amounts of Collagen. Collagen is a protein that our bodies also produce. And, yes, it strengthens them but it can also renew them, and, yes, even help grow back hair lost. As for fungus specifically, you’ll have to seek something else as this won’t battle that. But it will basically do everything that the natural Collagen in our bodies is already doing.

      As for the results, that varies. But I would say that 4-8 weeks is a good time frame. Some will see benefits sooner and for others, it can take longer. But 4-8 weeks is kind of the baseline.

      As for the effect, as far as my understanding goes, yes, it kind of wears off since our bodies naturally lose out on the Collagen production bit by bit as we age. So, ideally, we would be renewing those reserves constantly. But if we were to compare two people where one used Collagen for five years and has stopped for a while and another that never has used Collagen, the former should be looking younger still and have better nail, hair, skin, joint health (all other things being equal).

      Yeah, I definitely agree with that. Additives are tricky. And supplements are too. Indeed, so much to learn. :)


  6. Hey, this is a solid in-depth analysis of Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides and whether or not it’s a worthwhile purchase. Thank you for answering all the questions that I had about the quality of the product and whether it really does live up to the marketing promises. It’s helpful to know that it’s not quite at the top of your list in this category, but that it is still a good choice for someone who is considering it!

    • Hey, Ally!

      I’m thrilled to hear that it proved to be very potent in answering your questions. I’m really happy about that.
      Yeah, for sure, this feels like a great supplement. Not the best, no. But still, very awesome nonetheless.
