This Skinny Fit Super Youth review is all about getting to the truth and all truth, no matter how ugly or unenjoyable it may be.
Thus, we will be examining the promotional materials and scanning for the claims they make. And then, we will look at the beneficial ingredients and their actual likely benefits (to see how true those claims hold), inactive ingredients (to see if there are any potential dangers and side effects), and customer reviews slash global success rates (to assess how many have enjoyed the thing), as well as pricing aspects (to see how it compares to others).
Marketing | The Skinny Fit Of This Review Looks Terribly Tempting
According to the manufacturer, Skinny Fit Super Youth (Collagen Powder) is kind of these three things. First, it’s about delivering five different Collagen types. Second, these five types are from four different natural sources. Third, it’s done to make us “look and feel younger” and “restore youthfulness from the inside out” [R, R, R, R].
To give kind of an overview, there are four different supplements that go under the brand. At their core, they’re hugely the same, only the flavors differ.
Namely, there is the no flavor option, the peach-mango option, the tropical-punch one, and the chocolate cake edition. And each of them has got its own product page.
But there’s really no need to go through more than one. Essentially, that’s because they cover the exact same information in most sections and almost the same in all of the others. Plus, even the summaries are almost copy-paste.
As for the benefits, they mostly promise the typical ones. Meaning, there’s the core promise of more youthful skin. And then, there is one for healthier hair, nails, joints, bones, gut, and stronger muscles. And with the latest update, they also mention healthy weight as in implying weight loss. Which is just one of the lesser-known Collagen benefits.
As for marketing tactics, it’s absolutely massive. I mean, I would even go as far as to say it’s one of the heaviest marketing tactics-filled pages I’ve ever come across. To that end, I feel it’s heavier even than the pages of Organixx Clean Sourced Collagens (review) and BioTrust Ageless Multi Collagen (review).
First, an absolute wealth of both testimonials and mostly overwhelmingly positive customer reviews. Plus, a ton of happy customer pictures. Then, it’s that subscribe and save 25% deal and a 90-day money-back guarantee.
Then, a mention of all the magazines, news outlets, etc. which have featured the thing. And, of course, a huge chart at the end highlights how incredibly well Skinny Fit Collagen supplements compare to some of its rivals.
I mean, it’s all written and structured so smart that even I feel tempted to simply buy the thing. Which is exactly what these persuasion techniques are designed to do. Which is why they’re so powerful and dangerous at the same time. Whereas just bringing awareness to them is often enough to burst that bubble.
Other than that, we also get claims of Gluten-Free, Non-GMO, Dairy-Free, and Sugar-Free. And so, as I see it, all of the four Skinny Fit Super Youth Collagen Powder supplements look like really great products, at least as far as the promotional materials go. But let’s dive deeper.
Ingredients | All About Collagen & Augmenting Hair, Skin & Nails
While other supplements like Applied Nutrition Liquid Collagen (review) combine Collagen with certain vitamins, or like Garden of Life Collagen (review) persist on Collagen with probiotics, or like Vital Proteins Matcha (review) that fall back on Collagen with Green Tea, the Skinny Fit Super Youth Collagen supplements focus only on that specific single ingredient.
So, per serving (a single scoop), it will provide us with combined amounts of 7.8 grams of Hydrolyzed Bovine Collagen Peptides, Hydrolyzed Fish Collagen Peptides, Chicken Bone Broth Collagen Concentrate, and Eggshell Membrane Collagen.
As for the sourcing, it’s said to be a supplement sourced of Grass-Fed, Pasture-Raised cows, Cage-Free Chickens, and Wild-Caught Fish. Or, in other words, I feel it’s by far the best way how to origin that Collagen to ensure maximum contributions and thus, beneficialness.
Other than that, the supplements go out of their way to provide as much of Collagen type variety as they can. Meaning, with these particular products we’re getting Type I, Type II, Type III, Type V, and Type X of the protein. Which, by no means, is a bad thing.
As for the amounts, 7.8 grams is not my favorite number. I mean, it’s fine and it can certainly help. However, generally speaking, that’s a little on the low side. I would much rather prefer it to be 10 grams or more [R, R, R].
That said, I don’t think we can hold this against these Skinny Fit Super Youth Collagen powders. Because, yes, it’s 7.8 grams per serving but they themselves recommend 2-3 scoops. Which is 15.6-23.4 grams which is a very robust amount [R, R, R].
And so, I believe they are very capable of actually helping us make those gains happen.
But speaking of the claimed potential, it’s definitely pretty accurate. And still, despite that, Collagen has more to give.
The substance can not only promote youthful skin (better overall skin health, elasticity, reduce cellulite and wrinkles, provide youth-like glowing look), persist on healthier hair and nail, encourage stronger joints, bones, muscles, and better gut health, but also improve teeth and liver health, help boost metabolism, aid weight loss, blood sugar levels, and bedsores, assist in healing leaky gut, as well as above all just straight-out help reverse the signs of aging [R, R, R, R, R].
So, a profoundly beneficial protein. But that’s not the whole story. Because this doesn’t cover everything as far as the ingredients go. There’s also the aspect of additives.
Side Effects | Additives Differ From A Supplement To A Supplement
Any side effects ever are typically the product of additives. Whereas the aspect of additives for me has always been a fascinating one. There are so many people that are absolutely oblivious to the fact that this matters. Mainly because like anything we consume, these too can affect our overall health and well-being.
And contrary to what often innocently ignorant people think, not all additives are healthy or even harmless. Cancer, diabetes, liver disease, heart disease, obesity are just some of the potential outcomes (long-term and short-term) if we happen to consume one too many of the less than decent ones [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Hence, it goes without saying that we should always be mindful of them and we are here to help you at all times with that.
That said, the additives for Skinny Fit Super Youth hugely depend on what kind of flavor it embraces. The flavor part almost always is the doing of these other added ingredients that are typically not there for the primary benefit.
But given that we have four different supplements to look at and thus, essentially, four sets of additives to look at, let’s look at each of them individually in a standalone section.
Skinny Fit Super Youth Unflavored (Review) – There Is None, Likely The Safest Option
As the first of the four, we have the Skinny Fit Super Youth Unflavored Collagen.
And it’s pretty unique in the sense that 99% of all supplements are unlike this one.
What I mean is, this particular one is without additives completely.
This is not something that is possible to do very often. That’s mainly because supplements generally need a means of combining and dosing the beneficial ingredients in easy to consume dosages (supplementation forms), like tablets, capsules, powders, etc.
For example, I’ve never seen a proper multivitamin or even a conventional one (both for men or women) that is capable of doing it without additives. Whereas something like MCT Oils is frequently and easily done without.
Overall, I do feel that the versions without additives are often the preferred way whenever that’s possible. Because there’s the least potential for harm or health hazards (as theoretically every ingredient has the potential to be harmful to some select few people).
Skinny Fit Super Youth Peach Mango (Review) – Depends On Manufacturing Highly
As the name suggests, Skinny Fit Super Youth Peach Mango is about adding Peach-Mango-like taste to the Collagen, so that we could simply mix it with water and have an enjoyable drink.
But to make that happen, they have to add a couple of additives.
Or 6 if we’re completely on point. There’s Citric Acid, Natural Flavor, Stevia Leaf Extract, Malic Acid, Turmeric (for color), and Monk Fruit Extract.
Of these, Stevia Leaf and Monk Fruit Extract are natural and healthy sweetening options that are beyond harmless and, in fact, can deliver a few extra benefits. Essentially the same can also be said about the Malic Acid and Turmeric part. Whereas as for Citric Acid and Natural Flavor, it really depends [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
For Citric Acid, it depends on whether or not you’re consuming a lot of this very substance daily through various processed foods or not. Generally, it is considered largely harmless, however, in huge amounts, it can bring havoc by inducing free radicals, which can damage your cells. There are also other potential side effects if we’re consuming too much of it [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
One undesired trait as studies have suggested of Citric Acid is the fact that it improves Aluminum absorption if we consume it with or from Aluminum utensils or containers. So, do avoid that, otherwise, it can harm quite a bit [R, R, R].
Whereas for Naturals Flavors it hugely depends on what kind of manufacturing practices are embraced. Meaning, just because their “natural” doesn’t mean they are healthy. It all depends on those practices as poor ones can unintentionally add all kinds of admixtures and impurities that will ultimately only harm our health. Whereas proper ones can do exactly the opposite, namely, have none of those admixtures and actually be quite beneficial [R, R, R, R, R].
So, in this regard, when it comes to the Skinny Fit Super Youth Collagen powders (as two others also have natural flavors), it looks decently promising. Granted, they aren’t too elaborate on what kind of quality they subscribe to and it’s mostly all self-affirmed claims. However, they do promise of doing in-house testing on the end-products to ensure purity, reliability, and safety [R].
Which is a pretty good and definitely a commendable thing.
Skinny Fit Super Youth Tropical Punch (Review) – It Could Be Devastating To Some
The Skinny Fit Super Youth Tropical Punch is a very similar option to the one we just went over.
To add that extra flavor and make it drinkable with just water it uses Citric Acid, Natural Flavor, Stevia Leaf Extract, Malic Acid, and Fruit and Vegetable Juice (Color).
The first four the Peach Mango version of the supplement also had, so that we already covered. All that’s necessary to discuss for this section is this aspect of Fruit and Vegetable Juice addition for color.
And generally, it’s definitely fine.
However, I do believe that it’s not that great that they don’t exactly disclose what kind of fruit and vegetable juice they use. I mean, this Tropical Punch idea doesn’t exactly give it away.
But why is this important?
Because there are such fruits and vegetables that can be violently devastating. That won’t be the case for everyone, just for people that happen to be slightly more sensitive to them. A great example of this is Annatto [R, R, R, R, R].
Most people it won’t affect negatively. However, if you do happen to have an allergy to it, it will be hell. Sure, no idea of telling whether or not this Tropical Punch edition of the Skinny Fit Super Youth has that.
But it could. And hence, my point.
Skinny Fit Super Youth Chocolate Cake (Review) – The Most Advanced & Beneficial Version
The last one – the Skinny Fit Super Youth Chocolate Cake – is probably the best-flavored version when it comes to the added extra ingredients.
While it does superficially have the most additives of all, they are the more viable ones by far.
So, in this one we have Cocoa (processed with alkali), Natural Flavor, Rebaudioside A (Stevia), Gum Blend (Guar Gum, Gum Acacia, Xanthan Gum), and Monk Fruit Extract.
Monk Fruit Extract and Stevia, as discussed earlier, are the natural and healthy options when it comes to sweetening any product or consumable.
The Gum Blend consisting of Guar Gum, Gum Acacia, and Xanthan Gum is all absolutely harmless and is likely added to provide that chocolate cake type of feel to the drink.
Whereas as far as Cocoa goes, it’s really a beneficial thing and we shouldn’t ever shy away from consuming it. It’s actually recommended. I mean, just straight-out chocolate is a great thing for your health if it doesn’t contain any of the modern sugars that plague many of our foods. And with the Chocolate Cake version of the supplement it doesn’t [R, R, R, R, R].
So, it will likely be nothing other than beneficial. Hence, making the Skinny Fit Super Youth Chocolate Cake arguably the best option of the whole brand.
It’s something I would personally prefer over the others.
Reviews | Customer Reviews Haven’t Been Very Kind To These Products
So, in theory, based on beneficial ingredients alone, the Skinny Fit Super Youth Collagen powder supplements should be highly positive in their impact. But are they?
Taking a comprehensive look at (almost) every single real customer review I could find online, made me conclude that it’s not that simple, definitely not straightforward.
You see the customer reviews on any of the respective supplement product pages (which are fully manufacturer controlled) are highly positive. So, incredibly positive, in fact, that for flavored versions there are barely any negative reviews there.
To illustrate, at the time of this writing, there is a combined amount of 3021 reviews for the Peach Mango, Tropical Punch, and Chocolate Cake versions. Of which only a combined amount of 11 are one-star or two-star ratings.
Is it just me or does this sound beyond biased? And thus, while that feedback may be convincing to potential customers, I don’t feel it represents the truth. And thus, it’s kind of useless to us. Because we’re after the truth.
In this regard, the Unflavored version of the Super Youth may paint a bit more balanced view because it has way more negative reviews. Which is typically very unlike manufacturers that likely edit their bad on-site customer input (like we’ve concluded that to probably be the case with supplements like Code Age Multi Collagen and Ancient Nutrition Multi Collagen Protein).
Hence, if Skinny Fit may have not edited the Unflavored version’s reviews, then it’s usually a sign that they are likely not editing them sitewide. That is unless there are only reasonable discrepancies between the success rate on their site and the combined one of all other third-party sites.
But they are not that at all.
Based on the reviews available on Skinny Fit’s website, the Unflavored Skinny Fit Super Youth Collagen should be of 94.6% global success rate. However, the customer input on all other third-party retailers suggests that it’s sitting at 67.5% (443 total, 144 of which 1- and 2-star). Which makes for the impossible difference of 27.1%. Which is too great to be believable.
As for the Skinny Fit Super Youth Peach Mango, the on-site reviews suggest it should be 99.6%. Whereas, the customer input I gathered from all other third-party retailers propose it should actually be somewhere around 70.3% (172 total, 51 of which 1- and 2-star). Which is an even bigger difference than what the Unflavored version has. For Peach Mango, it’s 29.3% wide.
Then there’s the Skinny Fit Super Youth Tropical Punch, which on the manufacturer’s website is rated at 99.8% out of 1157 reviews. Only two bad opinions on this. Whereas, again, gathering data from third-party sellers suggest it might actually be just about 77.2% (114 total, 26 of which 1- and 2-star). Which, again, I feel is too big of a discrepancy (22.6%).
Finally, considering the Skinny Fit Super Youth Chocolate Cake, it seems that it’s actually the worst of the flavored options according to them. They claim it to be around 98.7%. Whereas I got 79.1% (67 total, 14 of which 1- and 2-star) from third-party retailers and sellers. Which makes for a 19.6% difference. Which, again, is too big one to not have any edited reviews.
Thus, given the huge margins that are here at play, I would say we should disregard the customer reviews on Skinny Fit’s website and do not take them into account when contemplating on the purchase at all. They feel bogus. For all I can say, they very likely are tailored and adjusted to fit Skinny Fit’s needs better. I mean, the brand is nowhere near as well-received as their product pages may lead people to believe.
In fact, on average, it seems that only about three customers out of every four satisfied with their purchase. Which, generally speaking, is definitely one of the lowest success rates I’ve seen. I mean, granted, those rates are likely higher as people typically are more prone to reporting negative experiences than positive ones. But that can be said about almost any supplement.
Hence, not that great, to say the least.
Pricing | The Super Youths Aren’t Priced Nearly As Great As They Showcase
Personally, I feel pricing is something that typically is very hard to judge. Especially given that as far as Collagen supplements not only there is such a huge variety in terms of the total serving count per container among different brands, but also because of the sheer serving size. For the first, it’s 10 grams. For the second, it’s 18 grams. For another one, it’s 7.8 grams.
So, it’s extremely hard to discern just by looking at the listed price whether or not it’s actually good value. Which is why charts like the one at the end of each product page are so powerful. They are all about the interpretation.
Here’s to illustrate.
So, they compare the price of Skinny Fit Super Youth Unflavored with the one of Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides (review). They say that Skinny Fit costs $1.20 per serving whereas Vital Proteins is $1.54 per serving (28.3% more expensive). What they somehow fail to account for is that Super Youth has only 7.8 grams of Collagen per serving. Whereas Vital Proteins provides 20 grams, namely more than 2.5 times the Collagen. A cool difference, right?
And this is not the only smart, cheeky, manipulative interpretation to create the impression that their Super Youth is the best option on the market. Furthermore, they are very careful about which supplements they compare it to.
Here are a few uncomfortable comparisons.
Let us compare it to Live Conscious (LiveWell) Collagen Peptides (review). Its original price sits at $34.99 per bag. However, much like its Super Youth rivals has the option, we can get it for as low as $22.99. So, while Skinny Fit costs $1.20 per 7.8 grams (a serving), the Livewell prices at $0.56 per 11 grams (a serving).
Plus, not only it has a 365-day money-back guarantee and a hormone-free certification over its rival, but it is also third-party tested for purity and potency. In other words, comparatively speaking, if we choose Skinny Fit Super Youth options overpaying like crazy. But, for the sake of it, if it has to be a multi-Collagen, let’s measure it to the BioTrust Ageless Multi Collagen (review).
It has an original price of $39 but we can get it for as low as $31 per bag. For that price, we get 20 servings of 10.9 grams of Multi Collagen. To compare that properly, it’s about 14.2 cents per every gram of Multi Collagen. Whereas Skinny Fit Super Youth costs 13.3 cents per gram.
The huge difference, however, lies in the fact that BioTrust is third-party tested for purity and potency and our supplement of this review isn’t. Plus, there are other advantages between the two that make the Ageless Collagen a clear favorite.
So, it turns out that the Skinny Fit Super Youth brand is not that invincible after all.
Pros & Cons | Skinny Fit Collagen Supplements Not Without Flaws
|✓ The Collagen Is Grass-Fed, Pasture-Raised, Wild-Caught, and Non-GMO.||✘ The Collagen is not promised to be Hormone-Free.|
|✓ It’s a powder, hence the serving size can be adjusted as needed or preferred.||✘ Generally speaking, customers haven’t been too happy with the products. On average, only about 7 out of 10 people enjoy them. That’s pretty low compared to what else is available on the market.|
|✓ Skinny Fit offers a bunch of different flavors. Hence, it offers flexibility and something for every taste.||✘ There are definitely better-priced multi-Collagen products on the market.|
|✓ Skinny Fit does in-house testing on end-products.||✘ The Super Youth is not third-party tested.|
|✓ As far as additives, the choices are typically quality. Hence, the Collagen supplements of this review won’t burden us with possible side effects.||✘ SkinnyFit’s marketing feels to be very manipulative.|
Overall | I Think They’re Consider-Able, I Would Prefer Others Though
I would absolutely love to be an advocate for the Skinny Fit Super Youth brand because I bet it sells really well. But saying that it’s a must-buy would be a ridiculous overstatement. Sure, the Skinny Fit Super Youth Collagen Powder supplements are fairly okay ones. But that’s about it.
They add decent amounts of Collagen (very good amounts if two or three scoops). The additives they use seem to be pretty great (though sometimes lacking specificity). The manufacturing and quality feel decent. But they certainly aren’t everything as we’ve seen with tons of other supplements [R, R, R, R, R, R].
I mean, the global success rates feel unnaturally low when it comes to the flagship, no flavor option. As for the flavored options, the other brands seem to have far more decent ones as well.
And the price, well, it’s not nearly as great as they try to paint it to be. It’s often just a clever and devious interpretation of the data.
That said, while I feel they are trying to oversell it, the price isn’t actually that bad for a multi Collagen. Sure, there are all-around better options out there but still. I believe Skinny Fit Super Youth holds its ground quite well.
And hence, (out of avoid it, consider it, shortlist it, or buy it) I would recommend simply considering it.
On that note, personally, over the supplements of this review, I would prefer the Live Conscious (LiveWell) Collagen Peptides (full review with a summary) every time. Whereas if it has to be a Multi Collagen, I would stick with the BioTrust Ageless Multi Collagen (full review), for sure.
Above all, I hope this Skinny Fit Super Youth review of the Collagen powders helped you find the information you were looking for. Did this brand prove out to be as good as you expected? Or have I completely surprised you with my take on them? Which do you believe is the worst one of their entire line-up? Let me know below.

FAQ | Another Facet To The Notion Of Side Effects
Q: What are the side effects of Skinny Fit Super Youth?
A: Well, while we did touch upon that in this review earlier, there is more to that. Meaning, while side effects are typically a matter of additives, they can also be a matter of the beneficial ingredient, in this case, Collagen. So, to that end, if we’re really stingy and unlucky, the Skinny Fit Super Youth can cause gas, diarrhea, constipation, bloating, upset stomach, and even bad taste in the mouth or bad breath (which, by the way, are also classic theoretical side effects of Gelatin).
Q: Does Skinny Fit Super Youth help you lose weight?
A: In theory, yes, any proper Collagen supplement can also help with weight loss. Hence, the Skinny Fit Super Youth can do that, too. That said, it is, by no means, the most capable substance or addition when it comes to that. Generally speaking, the way I see it, for weight loss, we should focus on exercise and quality sleep. And then, less processed food and fasting can also bring fantastic results. And only then, I would add a supplement to it all. Which if it is the case, I would pick a quality MCT Oil like the one by Nature’s Way (full review).
Q: Does Skinny Fit Super Youth has caffeine?
A: No, neither the unflavored version nor the flavored versions carry any caffeine whatsoever. But as a side note, people do often choose to mix them with coffee (especially the unflavored option).
Q: How long does it take to see results with Skinny Fit?
A: In theory, it can be a matter of a few days but it really depends on where is your health as a whole at. While different opinions exist, I would say that it will typically take anywhere between four and eight weeks. And it must be done on a daily basis as with any supplement.
Q: How many times a day should you drink Skinny Fit Super Youth?
A: The Manufacturer recommends 2-3 scoops (servings) daily. I’d say two is pretty ideal and enough. Three is for those who want that extra little kick out of it. But it does add up in terms of price.
Q: Does Super Youth help with cellulite?
A: Yes, as any Collagen, also the Skinny Fit Super Youth can help with battling cellulite.
Q: Does Walmart carry Skinny Fit Super Youth?
A: Yes, you can buy the supplement of this review at Walmart. However, I find that they are often out of stock. Furthermore, the price is better at the Skinny Fit’s website (given the discounted options).
