In this Vim & Vigor Collagenate review, we will dive deep into everything that the supplement is and has to offer.

In the process of that, we will have a look at their promotional materials and the claims they make. Then, we’ll hop on to exploring the beneficial ingredients, as well as those added for the making of the supplement. And finally, we’ll embrace the customer reviews, assess the global success rates, and do some analysis on the pricing.

This Vim & Vigor Collagenate Review To Help Find The Real Truth

According to the manufacturer, the Vim & Vigor Collagenate “is a specially formulated liquid collagen supplement.” It’s said to be a “collagen protein [..] uniquely processed and then combined with an organically grown, cold-processed Aloe Vera to produce a high quality, bio-available protein supplement called Collagenate.” And it’s “designed to promote a healthy, lean body.” But a lean body is not the only benefit they are pushing. [R].

Per their words, “Collagenate® is designed to improve fat metabolism, which in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle can be effective in helping people lose unwanted fat and inches without losing muscle. Collagenate® is also designed to rejuvenate the strength and health of muscles, joints, skin, hair and nails” [R].

Vim Vigor Collagenate Review

So, supposedly a bunch of different gains. Gains that, frankly, get repeated and regurgitated over and over again throughout its product page. But speaking of that page, well, let’s just say it’s no NeoCell Super Collagen + C (review) or Live Conscious (LiveWell) Collagen Peptides (review).

To tell the truth, to me, it looks like something out of the 80s TV commercial. I mean, to be frank, I think it’s easily the worst looking Collagen supplement product page I’ve ever come across.

The pictures don’t sit well with the text at all. Whereas the readability of the content is just horrible. I mean, it reminds me of what Organixx Collagen (review) or Taut Collagen (review) do to their prospects. Only worse. I mean, this is much, much worse because there are often no paragraphs, the text changes sizes without any apparent reason, plus, there are at least 5 different colors the text comes in.

In a nutshell, it feels to me like a bad circus act. Which, needless to say, isn’t a good vibe for a product page to have.

Still, they do try to put forward a couple of marketing tactics to kind of make up for the bad first impression. There’s a money-back guarantee, a bunch of positive testimonials, and even a 20% discount if we dare to buy three right off the bat. There are also a bunch of free-of claims to top it off. But is it really worth it?

Is Collagenate Hiding Its Core Beneficial Ingredients? Why?

There is one more thing about the Vim & Vigor Collagenate that kind of bugs me and which in itself is extremely unconventional. It’s something we’d never find among brands like Further Food (review) or Doctor’s Best (review).

With all the text, they forget to include proper info or a picture that clearly indicates what the supplement contains. I mean, we do get a vague list of the contents which gives away that probably the only two beneficial (active) ingredients in this one are Organically Grown Cold Processed Aloe Vera and Collagen.

This Product Is In Part All About Aloe VeraBut that’s about it. Neither they nor any other source online cares to elaborate on how much of each the supplement actually contains. And, the way I see it, that makes no sense whatsoever.

I mean, there’s a pretty huge difference between supplements that contains about 2 grams of Collagen like NeoCell Beauty Bursts (review), 10-12 grams like Nutra Organics Collagen Beauty (review), or 20 grams like Orgain Collagen Peptides (review). Plus, it’s not like this isn’t true for that Aloe Vera part either [RRRR].

I mean, they could have at least provided the combined amount of the two if it’s that big of a secret. That would at least give us some vague idea of how much there is to go around. Because, as it stands now, for all we know, there may not be. And hence, is there really a need to talk about any benefits?

I don’t think so [RRRRR, R, R, R, R, R].

Personally, I’m not fond of the kind of dodgy, zero-transparency attitude. As I said, it makes no sense. And, by no means, does it evoke trust. Even if it has a money-back guarantee.

Additives In This Vim & Vigor Supplement Are Also Not Ideal

Like the mystery with active ingredients wouldn’t be enough, the Collagenate of Vim & Vigor also is not great when it comes to additives. These are the ingredients that help keep all of the nutrients together and ensure specific delivery form (among potentially other things).

In this particular supplement, we have Purified water, Natural Fruit Flavors, Stevia Leaf Extract, Citric Acid, Potassium Benzoate, and Potassium Sorbate to do that. Which if I think about it, does remind me of the NeoCell Liquid Collagen (review), only without sugar. Which, generally speaking, is a good thing. But it would still not be good enough overall as far as additives.

Natural Flavors Do Not Guarantee HealthyFirst, there are those Natural Fruit Flavors.

The harmlessness or harmfulness of these highly depends on the actual manufacturing practices in place. Which in the case of the Collagenate is not promising at all. I mean, it’s all self-proclaimed, vague, generalistic statements with no third-party certifications or laboratories to approve anything of it [RRRRRR].

Which can mean admixtures and contaminants that can translate into a wide range of negative and unpredictable health effects. Not exactly ideal, to say the least [RRRRRR].

Second, there’s Citric Acid. It’s, generally speaking, a fine additive. That is unless it’s a GMO, which in this case it probably is (because they mention just about every other contains-none-of thing there is apart from this one. Plus, Citric Acid also can improve aluminum absorption which isn’t good. And then, Citric Acid is also harmful if consumed abundantly (a common ingredient in processed foods) [RRRRRRRRRRRRR].

Third, there’s Potassium Sorbate. Various opinions exist on this one. What I feel is impossible to deny though are the studies that have shown that this thing damages white blood cells. This in turn damages gene information which in turn takes its toll on genes themselves which can then lead to mutations. Which can mean cancer or DNA damage among other things. Plus, there are other concerns with this as well [RRRRRRRRR].

Overall, I wouldn’t say it’s smooth sailing with this. I mean, sure, it could be worse. There could be High-Fructose Corn Syrup in it. But it isn’t ideal either.

Per Customer Reviews, It Only Has Like A 50% Success Rate

Going a step further, we have customer reviews and global success rates. Their product page doesn’t really offer any. I mean, there are quite a number of testimonials that all praise the thing. But that’s not exactly what we’re after.

So, given that their page contains no Vim & Vigor Collagenate reviews, I conducted online research as thoroughly as possibly could in an effort to find every single real customer review out there. And what I found was quite surprising, to say the least.

Vim Vigor Collagenate ReviewsIt turns out there is only an exact number of 14 customer ratings for this supplement. And half of them are bad.

Or to be more specific, I found five 5-star reviews, two 4-star ones, no 3-star ones, none 2-star, and seven 1-star ones.

Hence, more 1-star reviews in total than 5-star ones. Which usually isn’t a good sign.

Given the presence of some 4-star ratings, the global success rate is 50.0% dead on. Which is extremely low. One of the lowest ones I’ve seen for any supplement, not just Collagen ones.

Granted, it’s quite early to tell, if this is a success rate that will stick because there just isn’t enough feedback on it yet. But given how it’s going, I wouldn’t be surprised if there won’t ever be. Either way, it’s not looking promising at all.

I mean, I wouldn’t ever pick this to reach my weight loss goals, for sure.

In Terms Of Pricing, All Things Considered, It Kind Of Feels Like A Rip-Off

When it comes to pricing, I didn’t exactly encounter Vim & Vigor Collagenate reviews that complained about the aspect of the product. Still, I wouldn’t say that’s enough to conclude that it’s fairly priced. It certainly doesn’t seem on the surface.

So, we’ve got what I assume typically is $57.00 per bottle. Which based on the information on the product page seems to be the price for 30 servings (days). Which means that it costs $1.90 per serving or day.

The Price Feels Like A Rip-OffBut as for, say, price per every gram of Collagen, that’s a mystery since they don’t list the actual amounts of that in it anywhere. The same goes for that Aloe Vera part.

So, I did some digging and I looked at all kinds of products both when it comes to Collagen and Aloe Vera.

For Aloe Vera, quality, drinkable stuff comes for about $25 per month. But depending on the manufacturer, we can get it for cheaper as well. Whereas for Collagen, there are many genuine quality stuff options we can find for less than $30 a month.

Now, mix the drinkable Aloe Vera with the Collagen Powder, and we basically have the same thing as Vim & Vigor Collagenate. The huge difference, however, is that it’s no longer the guessable quality and potentially harmful additives with miserable success rates. It’s exactly the opposite – great quality, great ingredients, solid success rates. And it’s cheaper.

So, taking that into account, I don’t think it’s ever worth going for this Vim & Vigor wonder.

I Think Collagenate Is Utterly Pointless, Don’t Waste Your Time & Money

Overall, I believe this Collagenate of Vim & Vigor is a very nonoptimal, unpromising, avoidable product.

I mean, start with its product page… A complete nightmare. Very mysterious and secretive about the active ingredients. Some pretty bad additives. No real information about the manufacturing practices in place whatsoever. And global success rates… I mean, those just suck.

Do Not Go For This - Not Worth ItThe way I see it, there is absolutely nothing going for it.

It’s just bad in every facet of the word imaginable.

That said, if you are looking for a proper Collagen supplement, I would suggest looking into this one (full review with a summary) which is my favorite one of all, both in terms of price and quality.

If you are, however, looking for a way to effectively lose weight, fasting and a proper MCT Oil (here’s a review on what I would pick) is probably the best course of action. Here also exogenous ketones may play their part.

Other than that, I hope this Vim & Vigor Collagenate review helped you find the information you were looking for. Would you pick this one up for weight loss despite all the mystery regarding beneficial ingredients? What do you reckon is the worst aspect of this one? Let me know below.

  1. I wish I had found your article sooner. I don’t take supplements, medications or anything like that. I’m blessed with extremely good health and have never had to diet in my entire 70 years! I have no medical issues what so ever and rarely take an aspirin for the odd headache. However, I seemed to be gaining a little of belly fat, and thought I would try this product to loose about 10 lbs and to test it before getting it for my daughter who can do with loosing 50lbs. After a month, I have not lost a single pound . On top of that, I have now developed a horrible type of heartburn, I think its a type of reflux. ?? It was particularly nasty when re-potting my patio/pool containers this morning when bending over. I called Vim & Vigor , someone was supposed to call me back and I’m still waiting. The product is expensive and for me, it was like taking castor oil .. horrible stuff but I endured for the wonderful benefits Vim & Vigor promised.
    Don’t waste your money!

    • Hey, Maria!

      I absolutely feel you. And I’m really sad to hear that. :(

      Other than that, I think your experience illustrates perfectly the point I was trying to put emphasis on with this Vim & Vigor Collagenate review. It’s not a product we should put our faith in when trying to lose weight.

      Above all, I genuinely appreciate you taking your time to leave your personal review on this. Thank you.


    • Hey, Juanita!

      That’s an interesting one. I’m really sorry to hear that if that’s what has been happening to you.

      But it raises an interesting concern. I mean, if the Vim & Vigor is what might have caused this for you (or for anyone, for that matter), doesn’t it become something extremely paradoxical? Meaning, shouldn’t it be helping hair? But instead, it backfires on that aspect of health.

      To that end, I’m also genuinely interested if anyone else has experienced hair loss whilst this probably being the culprit.


  2. I wish that every time I needed a review about a supplement, that I would find an article like yours. It is very clear now to me that the Vim & Vigor Collagenate product is highly suspicious and that I’d rather save my money on this. Because you are right: the number of grams of an ingredient should be mentioned, because it can make a huge difference! Thanks for the review!

    • Hey, Lizzy!

      I apologize for not managing to get back to you sooner. I hope you’re doing great. :)

      That’s very encouraging to hear. I genuinely appreciate that. It means the world to me. <3

      And I'll do my best to make that happen. :)


  3. Wow, this really gives a good insight on the Vim and Vigor Collagenate. It is really nice how you’ve exposed such a fraudulent product to the public, really shows that you are watching out for people especially those in your niche. I’m glad I came across you. Have a nice day!

    • Hey, The Bit Guy!

      I am happy to hear that! I’m delighted this proved to be insightful.
      And I, indeed, am trying my best to watch out for people. So, that they wouldn’t have to do that themselves when it comes to supplements. :)


  4. I believe this review has shown very well what this is actually about. Compliments to your writing. Well done!

    In my opinion, it seems that Collagenate is all about the marketing materials, that it is here just to hype and persuade with testimonials. That at its core and it seems to me that this product is just interested in selling. And, frankly, that is not a sign of a quality product I believe. I’m more than sure that I will let this one slide.

    • Hey, Darmi!

      I’m glad this proved to be insightful. I appreciate your thoughts on this. And I think you’re absolutely right on letting this one slide.
      Other than that, I appreciate the kind words. It means a lot. <3

      Cheers, and have a Great One!

  5. First things first, I just love the benefits that supplements like these have in store for the skin. Collagen is the main element that keeps your skin looking youthful and wrinkle-free. And, therefore, it’s especially important as you grow older.

    Truth told, I was really looking forward to buying this product. I just liked the idea of coupling that with the benefits of Aloe Vera. It seemed like the ultimate combination. But, yeah, your review helped me see it for what it truly likely is. And I did not like the additives at all.

    Thank you for bringing an honest view of the Vim & Vigor.

    • Hey, Dexidoo!

      I feel you. Separately each of the ingredients is definitely awesome. I just don’t think it’s that capable of a mix here. Especially because we don’t exactly get introduced to how much of each per serving is there. Which I believe is crucial information.

      And, yeah, additives are pretty trash here. At least the way I see it.

      Glad this proved to be helpful.


  6. Thanks for writing this article. The in-depth-ness of this Vim and Vigor Collagenate review made a real difference for me. I almost bought the thing the other day. I’m glad I didn’t. Ultimately, I agree. There’s just too much mystery for this one. Plus, it 100% sounds too good to be true. Cheers.

    • Hey, Kelvin!

      Thank you for sharing that. <3
      And I'm really happy to hear this made a difference. It makes the effort of writing it totally worth it.

      Cheers, and have a Great One!
