Eating a balanced diet of fruits and vegetables, lean proteins and complex carbohydrates won’t only make your jeans fit a little better — it will make you feel better all around. A healthy diet can give you more energy to do the things you love, while also helping you sleep better at night. However, some people opt to kick things up with collagen powder.
Vitauthority’s Multi Collagen Burn is a favorite for filling in any gaps in your diet. You may know collagen is beneficial for your hair, skin and nails, but the powder also contains hyaluronic acid and vitamin C. According to the product description, these ingredients can help brighten and tighten skin and strengthen hair and nails. It works behind the scenes in your beauty routine.

However, you should know that this powder also contains thermogenics, which you may have heard referred to as “fat burners.” A study published by the University of South Florida in 2016 found that thermogenic dietary supplements can elevate one’s resting metabolic rate. In turn, when taken on a daily basis, a thermogenic supplement may increase one’s energy and potentially lead to weight loss over time. (Note: It can also slightly increase your blood pressure.)
At its core, however, the Multi Collagen Burn is like an amped up protein powder. It’s a collagen peptide product and it contains five types of collagen: I, II, III, V, and X. Essentially, our bodies already contain these five types of collagen, and each one is responsible for something different, like ligaments, muscles, skin and more. But as we age, our body makes less collagen on its own, hence, why you may want to try a supplement.
According to a study done by the University of California, Irvine, Department of Dermatology in 2019, collagen peptide supplements really work. “Preliminary results are promising for the short and long-term use of oral collagen supplements for wound healing and skin aging. Oral collagen supplements also increase skin elasticity, hydration, and dermal collagen density,” its report, published in the Journal of Drugs of Dermatology, reads.
Vitauthority’s Multi Collagen Burn powder comes in a strawberry lemonade flavor or unflavored (as well as in capsule form). To use, the brand suggests mixing a scoop of powder with water and drinking it one to two times a day. However, the unflavored powder goes best mixed in coffee, tea, smoothies or yogurt.
Anytime you decide to try a new supplement, even a collagen powder, it’s a good idea to consult your doctor beforehand. But when you’re ready to take the plunge into better hair, skin, nails and more, take advantage of Vitauthority’s sale happening right now.
