In this Vitauthority Multi Collagen review, we will immerse ourselves into everything related to the supplement.
Or to be more specific, we will devote a section for claims and promotional materials. We will do one for the beneficial ingredients and then another one for the other ingredients (additives). Finally, we’ll do another section that will revolve around customer reviews and success rates, as well as we’ll find space to discuss the money aspect as well.
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.
Vitauthority Multi Collagen Review – Initial Thoughts & Overview
When speaking of the Vitauthority Multi Collagen, I am referring to the capsuled version of the brand. That in mind, if, by any chance, you intended to find a review on the Vitauthority Multi Collagen Protein (Collagen Peptides) and all of its flavors, you can find it here (I’ll add it very soon).
Going through the description page, I struggled to find a citation worthy definition that would somewhat capture the core idea of the product. It’s kind of all over the place and more about describing it than directly saying what it is [R].
As for the description page itself, it’s similar to what we’ve seen with supplements like Organixx Clean Sourced Collagens or LAC Taut Collagen. Meaning, while the structure of the page resembles that of Further Food Collagen or Ancient Nutrition Multi Collagen Protein, it absolutely drowns people in information, marketing materials, persuasion tactics. I mean, there’s pretty much every single one I can think of.
First, the notion of buy more, save more. Second, get free shipping for everything. Third, subscribe to regular shipments of the supplement and save even more. Fourth, 60-day money-back guarantee. Fifth, customer reviews. Sixth, customer testimonials. Seventh, emphasis on this notion that they’ve sold one million servings total.
And eighth, a comparison table that compares the Vitauthority Multi Collagen capsules with four of its competitors. Which, of course, emphasizes that the supplement of this review is the obvious best choice.
Superficially that table looks solid. But that I feel is somewhat deceiving as to me it seems to be limited to a very specific perspective. And that bears addressing, especially given that I’m very familiar with every single one of the supplements they compare this one to. Hence, we’ll do an in-depth analysis of it in a later section.
As for the potential benefits, they promise quite many (and they provide a small description for each). First, it’s youthful, vibrant skin. Second, it’s about strengthening joints and bones. Third, it boosts lean muscle mass. Fourth, it supports healthy hair and nails. Fifth, it helps improve weight loss. Finally, sixth, it maintains a healthy gut. Which, personally, is the approach I very much appreciate
Because it is very specific, straight forward, transparent as to what we’re supposedly getting. That’s something very unlike what we’ve seen with Ideal Collagen or LiveWell Collagen that promise “overall wellness” or some other derivative of that. I mean, I get if we were to find such claim on the description page of a proper multivitamin supplement – after all they’re a fusion of upwords of 25 nutrients that are exactly aimed at helping people achieve optimum health, cellular function, wellness.
Whereas if we were to attribute “overall wellness” in its broadest possible interpretation to Collagen supplements, it would pretty much mean that we can in one way or another attribute that same label to any supplement ever (because in the way they do). Which kind of defeats the purpose of calling any supplement that, right?
Lastly, the Vitauthority Multi Collagen supplement is said to be Non-GMO, Soy-Free, Gluten-Free, and convenient to swallow due to the small capsule size. It’s also said to be Lab-Verified, which is a rather odd thing to say, really.
That’s mainly because, as I see it, the intention here may be to resemble that of third-party testing and thus, supposedly provide similar value. But, for all I can say, it’s actually (and most likely) the case of some in-house testing here. And, however, profound it may be, it’s still not as reliable source because the manufacturer is naturally interested in how well these supplements perform in those. Moreover, doesn’t any self-respecting manufacturer do in-house testing?
Be that as it may, overall, I feel that for most, this will be a description page convincing enough to buy. But is the supplement actually worth something?
I Don’t Really Understand This Collagen Thing; It’s Quite Upside Down
There is a ton of different Collagen supplements out there. There’s those that offer only the protein with nothing extra like we’ve seen with Nature’s Truth Ultra Collagen Powder or Amandean Marine Collagen. Then there’s those that couple Collagen with one or two extra substances like Vital Proteins Matcha Collagen or Genacol Pain Relief. And then there’s those that add far more than that like Pure Gold Collagen or even, to an extent, the Physician’s Choice Collagen Peptides.
Whereas when it comes to the Vitauthority Multi Collagen capsules, it’s kind of the middle path with the addition of ensuring five types of Collagen instead of just the typical two.
So, at its core, the product has 1,600 milligrams of what they refer to as the Multi Source Collagen Complex. It’s a mixture of different types of Collagen derived from various, high-quality food sources (Hydrolyzed Bovine Collagen Peptides from grass-fed beef, Chicken Bone Broth Collagen Concentrate, Hydrolyzed Fish Collagen Peptides, and Eggshell Membrane Collagen). Then this gets augmented by 50 milligrams of Hyaluronic Acid and 50 milligrams of vitamin C.
So, what are we exactly looking at here? What does this all mean?
Well, 5-type Collagen from 4 different upper-quality sources, sure, sounds nice. And, generally speaking, the kind of stuff can be responsible for all of the claimed benefits and even beyond that. However, with only 1,600 milligrams per three capsules (one serving), we’re likely looking at those being limited at best. I mean, compare that to Health Direct AminoSculpt Collagen (10 times the Collagen per serving) or Garden of Life Collagen (6-12 times the protein depending on the exact version) [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Whereas if we consider the 50 milligrams of Hyaluronic Acid, it’s actually a decent amount. Separate, stand-alone supplements of this substance typically fall into that range of 50-100 milligrams. And hence, the potential for gains is significantly higher [R].
That said, Hyaluronic Acid is actually a substance naturally produced by our bodies. But adding extra of it through supplementation has been proven to be advantagous in quite many ways. It can provide anti-aging properties, reduce wrinkles, eliminate bags under the eyes, help get rid of dry eyes, improve joint health, fight off dandruff, and among other things promote skin elasticity and just healthier-looking skin overall [R, R, R, R, R].
Overall, I do find this situation rather histerical. Meaning, as I see it, feeling any benefits is more likely to come from Hyaluronic Acid than they are from the actual Collagen. And so, it kind of does the opposite of what products like NeoCell Marine Collagen or It Works CollagenWorks do. It may seem like it’s prioritizing Collagen, but, in reality, it’s kind of putting actual emphasis on Hyaluronic Acid.
Kind of messed up if you ask me. But the last one is kind of messed up as well, at least to an extent.
I mean, there’s nothing wrong with having some vitamin C in the supplement as well. However, I feel the problem lies in the fact that they’re pushing rather hard this notion that this Vitauthority Multi Collagen supplement is from 4 natural food sources. And, the way I see it, many people can misinterpret that and assume that it is all created from natural sources. But nothing could be further from the truth.
The fact that they don’t list on the label from what sources is that vitamin C derived from and the fact they don’t list anything on the label after the vitamin in brackets can only really mean one thing. It is the synthetic form of vitamin C that they use (otherwise, why would they not clearly specify it?).
This is not to say that it in of itself can’t be beneficial. Or that it’s a bad thing. Not at all. It can be beneficial which is why it’s not rare to see other Collagen supplements like NeoCell Super Collagen + C or AHS Super Collagen use it or even both men and women multivitamins having it [R, R].
No. This is just to say that if you’ve somehow bought into this notion of Vitauthority Multi Collagen capsules being all from natural sources, that’s inaccurate. Don’t be (intentionally or untentionally) misguided that way. I mean, it’s not like they’re going to admit as to say, “Yeah, we use all these great ingredients but we wanted to save on vitamin C; that’s why we used the sythetic form.”
No manufacturer in his right mind will ever do that. Don’t you agree?
Additives Vitauthority’s Done Well; No Real Concerns Here
And here’s something else a manufacturer will never upfront admit (or will just be straight up ignorant about it and couldn’t care less). The use of potentially harmful additives – the other ingredients added to supplements to form them into capsules, tablets, liquids, and whatever else [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
But it’s different with the capsules of Vitauthority Collagen.
Unlike what we saw with the active ingredients or what we’ve seen with additives in supplements like Applied Nutrition Liquid Collagen or Nature’s Bounty Extra Strength Hair, Skin & Nails, this is an aspect well done.
The supplement uses three. Dicalcium Phosphate, Gelatin, and Magnesium Stearate.
Dicalcium Phosphate is actually an incredient often used in supplements for Calcium acquisition (being the active ingredient). And hence, while there may be people that encounter allergies with this (as with any ingredient), generally speaking, it’s the beneficial kind. Similarly with Gelatin.
It’s basically the same Collagen only slightly different prepared. And with that in mind, generally speaking this one is also a hugely positive one.
Whereas the last one (especially if you try to Google it) is not that clear cut. Well, it is actually. There’s just a ton of misinformation out there. But having spent tens of hours in researching it and, frankly, everything that’s thrown at it, I’m confident. I’m confident that the minority of high-profile health professionals have actually got it right. It’s a massively harmless one, no doubt about it.
Thus, while these Vitauthority capsules may not be the most promising ones, at least as far as Collagen goes, it is pretty much guaranteed they will not cause trouble or throw side-effects our way.
