In this Vitauthority Multi Collagen Protein review, we will not take anything for granted. Instead, we’ll do some proper, comprehensive, meticulous dissecting of all four supplements (the main one plus three flavored ones).
Here’s how we are going to do that. First, we will look at the claims and analyze their promotional materials. Second, we will dive into the beneficial ingredients and potential benefits. Third, we will pick apart the other ingredients, also known as additives. And finally, fourth, we will explore customer reviews and assess global success rates.
Vitauthority Multi Collagen Protein Review – Initial Thoughts & Overview
While I do love to start off my reviews with a somewhat of a definition that the manufacturer itself provides for the supplement, there isn’t one for the Vitauthority Multi Collagen Protein supplements. It’s kind of all over the place and all about describing the thing. Truth told, something incredibly similar to what we saw with the capsules of Vitauthority Multi Collagen. It’s just the way they roll [R].
Also, I think it’s worth clarifying right off the bat that there are 4 different flavors and each of them has their own description page. That said, each of those description pages is an almost one for one replica when compared to each other [R, R, R, R].
Whereas as for the very essence of them, there’s absolutely a ton of information. Even overwhelming amounts. To that extent, very similar to what we have seen by Organixx Clean Sourced Collagens or LAC Taut Collagen. But at least it’s not completely unreadable like it was with Vim & Vigor Collagenate. It’s well-structured. But in every way, enormous on marketing.
Just like the capsule version, this one also employs every single trigger that comes to mind. The more we buy, the more we save. Customer testimonials. Customer reviews. Free shipping for everything. 60-day money-back guarantee. Get a free ebook with the purchase. Save more when we subscribe to regular shipments. This notion of one million servings sold.
And a comparison table where the supplement, obviously, compares favorably to its most potent rivals. Which I feel is done through a warped perspective to make the Vitauthority Multi Collagen Protein the obvious choice (but we’ll properly dissect it in one of the later sections).
There’s even a video where some random girl basically says, “she wanted to try Collagen; there are a million options, and so I tried Vitauthority (without much-comparing anything); and it works.” But try researching the reviews on Amazon for any Collagen product. I bet you won’t find a single product not having at least one review under it like this one. But having that video here, it’s all part persuasion (and in no way does it prove that this product is a high-quality and worthy investment).
It’s all to prey on our natural cognitive biases. To make us buy. To get us to buy. To convince us to buy. To get us lured into buying.
I know. With all this, it’s incredibly easy to decide in favor of this Vitauthority Multi Collagen Protein. But we’re naturally wired that way. And they’re pushing all the buttons. So, just be aware of that. Don’t choose it for its marketing, choose it (or don’t) for what it is. But try not to be consumed by marketing. There’s more we’ll uncover throughout this review.
That aside, the potential benefits they promise are quite a few. It’s said to support youthful and vibrant skin, support hair and nail health, foster joint and bone health, promote weight loss, boost lean muscle mass, and help keep a healthy gut.
Apart from that, it’s also said to be Non-GMO, Soy-Free, Gluten-Free, tasteless, odorless, superior absorption. And then there’s also something they refer to as Lab Verified, as regards to which there’s no indication that it’s done by third-party. Which would be the ideal case. They may somewhat mirror the idea of it being the ideal case by mentioning it that way. But truth is, any proper supplement manufacturer does product testing.
So, is this Multi Collagen Protein of Vitauthority worth something or is it just illusion in proportions overblown?
Uncovering Core Ingredients, Potential Benefits & Additives Separately For Each
I don’t think it would be straight forward and easy to follow enough if we were to look at all four of the Vitauthority Multi Collagen Peptides supplements at once. That could definitely get extremely complicated and even confusing.
Hence, I believe it’s best we do them one at a time. We’ll start with the unflavored version, continue with the chocolate one, then switch to the tropical punch one, and finally, explore the pink lemonade one. For each, we’ll look into the core ingredients, potential benefits, and additives.
Vitauthority Multi Collagen Unflavored (Review) – The Only Properly Viable Option, Really
The most basic version of Vitauthority Multi Collagen is the unflavored one. It’s kind of the backbone of the whole brand that any other supplement in their line-up builds on. And with that, a lot of what goes with this one will go with the other ones as well. That’s especially when it comes to the core beneficial ingredients and consequently, the potential benefits as well [R].
So, per serving, the Vitauthority Multi Collagen Unflavored offers 7.8 grams of Multi Source Collagen Complex which is a mix of various Collagen sources. It’s comprised of Hydrolyzed Bovine Collagen Peptides from grass-fed beef, Hydrolyzed Fish Collagen Peptides, Chicken Bone Broth Collagen Concentrate, and Eggshell Membrane Collagen. This is then further enhanced by 50 milligrams of Hyaluronic Acid and 50 milligrams of vitamin C.
With that in mind, overall, it heavily reminds me of Further Food Collagen coupled with elements of Ideal Collagen and NeoCell Super Collagen + C. All to create a supposedly powerful supplement. But is it truly that?
Generally speaking, 7.8 grams of Collagen is not amazingly much. It’s more than the 6 to 6.6 grams many supplements like Doctor’s Best Collagen or Youtheory Collagen offers, but it’s not mesmerizing in any way. I mean, most Collagen supplements will make sure they provide at least 10 grams per serving as we’ve seen with Amandean Marine Collagen or Great Lakes Gelatin Collagen Hydrolysate.
Whereas others persist on 1.5 to 2 times further more like we’ve seen with Health Direct AminoSculpt Collagen or Garden of Life Collagen. Which is arguably the best choice and something I’d personally prefer in a Collagen supplement [R, R, R, R].
This is not to say that 7.8 grams won’t be beneficial and can’t deliver on all of the promised benefits. It definitely can; quite frankly, even the smallest amounts of Collagen can as I’ve come to learn through global success rates of supplements like Nature’s Life Marine Collagen or AHS Super Collagen. Still, ideally, we would want a bit more of the good stuff. I’d say at least 10 grams a day [R, R, R, R, R].
Hence, ideally, we’d want at least 2 scoops of the Vitauthority Multi Collagen which makes it significantly more expensive overall. But I feel it’s definitely worth it. Even more so because that would add to the overall amounts of Hyaluronic Acid and vitamin C as well.
Speaking of that, 50-100 milligrams of Hyaluronic Acid a day is a superb amount for this substance as far as the gains go. As a skin moisture retainer that it is, it can provide anti-aging properties, fight off bags under the eyes, eliminate wrinkles, reduce dry eyes, help battle dandruff, improve joint health, contribute significantly to skin elasticity, improve joint health, and have other skin-related benefits [R, R, R, R, R].
As for vitamin C, given the way that it’s presented on the supplement label, we’re very likely speaking of the synthetic form of the vitamin. Now, this is not to say that it can’t or won’t be beneficial. It can be significantly beneficial. All I’m saying is don’t buy into this notion that it’s an all-natural ingredient supplement (it’s not like they themselves claim that but it’s something easy to confuse given the other ingredients and their sourcing) [R, R, R].
Lastly, the fact that this particular, basic, flagship version of the Vitauthority Multi Collagen Peptides brand doesn’t use any additives, almost immediately makes it a properly viable option.
Which, sadly, can’t really be said about all of the flavored versions.
Vitauthority Multi Collagen Chocolate (Review) – Artificial Is Actually Not Always Bad
The Vitauthority Multi Collagen Chocolate goes by the exact same beneficial ingredients in the exact same amounts the flagship supplement of the brand does. Where it differs profoundly is additives [R].
For starters, when the unflavored version has none, the chocolate one has them. A number of them. And overall, they are no better than what we’ve encountered with supplements like Applied Nutrition Liquid Collagen or Pure Gold Collagen. The case of Natural and Artificial Flavors and Sucralose.
Granted, many manufacturers do not dare to use Artificial Flavors. This is not because they are typically any more potentially harmful than natural ones. Instead, it’s rather the baggage and misconceptions that come from both artificial colors and artificial (and synthetic) ingredients just in general [R, R, R, R, R].
People tend to believe (without a legitimate, fact-based, logical reason) that Artificial Flavors is bad and Natural Flavors is good. But really, first can often be much less harmful than the second. There’s a lot more than can go wrong in the process of making natural ones. But be that as it may, ultimately, it all comes down to the manufacturing practices in place. Because flavors can even be beneficial if done properly [R, R, R, R, R].
That in mind, as regards to the Vitauthority, it seems to be of solid manufacturing. However, it doesn’t have any third-party certifications; it’s all self-proclaimed stuff. But I would go out on a limb and say that based on how they talk about quality and all that related, they probably decent in that space. I mean, it’s a coin flip but still. Generally, I think it should be fine [R].
What’s not so fine though is the fact that it uses Sucralose. Which we’ll discuss more in detail in the next section.
Vitauthority Multi Collagen Tropical Punch (Review) – Sucralose Is A Massive Health Hazard
As far as the active ingredients go, the Vitauthority Multi Collagen Tropical Punch is identical to the previous two. The difference, again, lies in the sole choice of additives [R].
Unlike just the four – Natural and Artificial Flavoring, Silicon Dioxide, and Sucralose – that the Chocolate version uses, this one also adds Citric Acid and Malic Acid.
So, Sucralose… What about it?
Well, it’s an artificial sweetener often used to replace sugar. And so, give off the impression that it’s a remarkable supplement that makes the product tasty without adding this otherwise typically already too much-consumed ingredient. But really, it’s an illusion. It’s actually worse. I mean, I’d personally prefer just regular table sugar over this one despite the fact that I’m not fond of sugar in any supplement [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Regular consumption of this ingredient can lead to diabetes, heart disease, obesity, cancer, eating disorders, stupidity, depression, as well as a plethora of other nasty stuff. So, not exactly ideal [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Whereas another one of the potentially problematic ones that this particular flavored version has, we will discuss in the next section.
Vitauthority Multi Collagen Pink Lemonade (Review) – Citric Acid Can Be A Problem If Certain Aspects Apply
The Vitauthority Multi Collagen Pink Lemonade is exactly like the brand’s Tropical Punch version. Exactly like it apart from, of course, the likely flavors used. But other than that, the same beneficial ingredients; the same all the other additives [R].
So, there’s also Sucralose here, just like in any other flavored version of this Vitauthority thing. Which makes it an unviable option. But there’s also Citric Acid than can bring some additional dangers if consumed recklessly.
The thing with Citric Acid is that it’s actually a very necessary compound for our general health and well-being. Without it, we can’t be well. It’s something that’s present in all living organisms. To that end, it’s absolutely essential to health [R, R].
However, the consumption of it can also backfire if certain prerequisites don’t apply. First, it has to be Non-GMO (which it is here). Second, it may cause havoc if consumed in excessive amounts, which is something people who eat a lot of processed food should be careful about (a very frequent ingredient). Third, it improves aluminum absorption that can be extremely detrimental. Hence best to always try to avoid consuming it from containers, utensils, cutlery that’s made out of this metal [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
So, the first is an aspect entirely dependent on the manufacturer. And as far as that goes, Vitauthority Multi Collagen is fine. Whereas the last two depend more on our lifestyle. And they are definitely aspects we have the full control over. Thus, being mindful about those will take us out of harm’s way.
But Sucralose is still a problem. With each of the flavored versions.
