Vitauthority Multi Collagen Burn Review: Effective, But With a Twist

Key Insights (TL;DR)

  • Vitauthority Multi Collagen Burn is a powdered collagen supplement with the addition of a few other ingredients for reducing visible cellulite and supporting weight loss.
  • Scientific research supports using collagen supplementation to increase our body's collagen production, which may improve your skin’s appearance and joint health.
  • Some — but not all — of this product's ingredients may be effective for weight loss. However, they are likely underdosed, so the effects will not be significant.
  • Aside from one small study, there is no substantial evidence that the ingredients in Multi Collagen Burn will help to reduce cellulite.
  • Most of the benefits from this product come from collagen, so we think paying extra for other ingredients in this product does not make sense. Save your money and buy a regular multi collagen supplement from Vitauthority or another high-quality brand of your choice.
  • The collagen is sourced from fish and eggs, two common allergens. Anyone with an allergy to these foods should proceed with caution.
  • Based on customer reviews, most users say it mixes easily and are satisfied with the taste. A lot of consumers report improved skin health and less joint pain.

What Vitauthority Gets Right

  • It contains five types of collagen from four sources.
  • It uses a hydrolyzed form of collagen for better absorption.
  • It contains an effective dose of collagen for skin, nail, and joint health.
  • The formulation includes vitamin C and hyaluronic acid, ingredients with research to support collagen production and absorption and support skin and joint health.
  • It comes in flavored and unflavored versions for a variety of uses.

Important Considerations

  • Collagen supplements require time and consistent use to start noticing benefits.
  • The amount of each ingredient in the blends is not disclosed, making it more challenging to evaluate their effectiveness in this supplement.
  • The ingredients used for weight loss are likely underdosed and do not have much research behind them either.
  • Besides one very small study, there is no strong evidence to support the product's claims of reducing cellulite.

Vitauthority Multi Collagen Burn at a Glance

Vitauthority Multi Collagen Burn is a powdered collagen supplement that includes five of the most common types of collagen found in our bodies (types I, II, III, V, and X).

Collagen is the most abundant protein that is naturally produced in our bodies. Its primary role is to provide structure and strength to our skin, muscles, joints, and bones.

As we age (starting as early as 25–30 years), our bodies slow collagen production. More and more emerging research has shown that supplementing with collagen peptides, the building blocks of collagen, can help our bodies produce more collagen, which results in improved skin and joint health.

Adding a collagen supplement to your routine makes sense, and there is no shortage of brands vying for your attention. Collagen supplements can be generally broken down into two categories. Some contain two types of collagen (type I and III) from a single bovine (beef) source, while others, like Vitauthority, include five types from multiple sources.

Although there is some anecdotal evidence that supplementing with five types is beneficial, there is simply not enough evidence to conclude that it is more beneficial than supplementing with just two types.

Vitauthority also includes vitamin C and hyaluronic acid that boost collagen absorption and production and offer skin and joint health. In addition, Multi Collagen Burn adds several other ingredients that are thought to reduce visible cellulite and make weight loss easier (we’ll address both of these claims in the next section).

Multi Collagen Burn powder comes in several flavors and an unflavored version. It is also available in capsule form, which we do not recommend because of its significantly lower collagen amount.

Try Multi Collagen Burn

How to Take It

To use the unflavored version of Collagen Burn, mix one scoop of powder with 6–8 oz of a beverage (such as coffee, juice, tea, or smoothie) or food (such as yogurt or oatmeal) once to twice daily. Vitauthority recommends against mixing the unflavored powder with plain water for maximum enjoyment.

However, Collagen Burn is also available in strawberry lemonade and tropical punch flavors, which can be mixed with 8–12 oz of plain water.

As we already mentioned, consumers report that the powder mixes easily, and users are satisfied with the taste. Finding a pleasant and easy-to-use collagen powder is important because you need to use it consistently long-term to experience the health benefits that it can provide.

The Research Behind the Ingredients

This product contains collagen peptides, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin C, which have been shown to benefit your skin and joint health. That is why a collagen supplement should be used only for those areas of concern and not viewed as a multi-faceted supplement to address weight loss.

We believe that the inclusion of the other ingredients (which we will outline in a moment) to address weight loss, metabolism, and cellulite doesn’t have too much compelling evidence, or at the very least, this supplement contains significantly less of those ingredients than what was used in the studies.

Below we’ll discuss the research of the ingredients used in this supplement.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin and antioxidant. This vitamin is necessary for forming collagen in our bodies and reducing inflammation in areas where collagen is abundant. Research suggests that vitamin C has many roles in maintaining our skin health. (1, 2) Vitauthority Multi Collagen Burn contains 50 mg of vitamin C, which is well within the recommended daily dose.

Chromium

Vitauthority Multi Collagen burn contains 100 mcg of Chromium picolinate, which is a combination of the essential mineral chromium and picolinic acid. This form absorbs more efficiently compared to other chromium salts. Chromium generally is involved with metabolism and insulin action and is known to improve body composition.

Research has found that supplementing with 200–400 mg of chromium picolinate daily can help maintain lean body mass during weight loss, decrease body fat, and help with overall weight loss. The daily recommended amount of this ingredient is 50–200 mcg. The weight loss aspect from this ingredient is not too significant, however. (3)

Multi-Collagen Blend

As previously mentioned, Vitauthority’s blend contains five types of collagen sourced from multiple animals. It consists of hydrolyzed grass-fed bovine collagen peptides, hydrolyzed chicken collagen, hydrolyzed fish collagen, and water-soluble eggshell membrane collagen.

While all of these collagen types are vital, no research shows that supplementing with them may produce benefits. Instead, many popular collagen brands typically contain only collagen types I and III, which most studies looked at.

Here is a breakdown of the type of benefits collagen supplementation may provide:

  • Skin Health: Studies show supplementation with collagen (1–2 grams daily) is effective in improving skin elasticity, reducing wrinkles and skin roughness, improving skin hydration, and generally increasing the density of collagen in the skin. (4)
  • Nail Strength: One clinical trial on collagen supplementation and nail growth found that supplementing with 2.5 g of collagen daily for 24 weeks reduced brittle nails, improved nail growth, and decreased the frequency of broken nails in individuals with existing brittle nail syndrome. (5)
  • Hair Strength: Because collagen improves the integrity of skin cells (which decrease as we age and may lead to thinning hair), supplementation may indirectly help with supporting hair health by improving our skin’s elasticity and help fight damaged follicles — allowing for strong hair to grow. (6) Additionally, studies are showing that collagen peptides may be used to support hair growth (7)
  • Joint Health: Collagen supplementation increases the protein in the cartridge between your joints. Studies have shown that supplementation with collagen helps relieve knee pain, specifically for osteoarthritis individuals. (8)
  • Muscle Mass: Studies have shown that supplementation with collagen peptides helped improve muscle mass, specifically in those experiencing sarcopenia (when you lose muscle mass and strength due to age). The participants also did resistance training in addition to taking collagen. (9)

Metabolism Support Blend

  • Ashwagandha: An adaptogen used in Ayurvedic medicine that comes from a shrub grown in India, the Middle East, and Africa. Human studies show that ashwagandha may help reduce stress, lower blood cortisol levels, and help promote sleep. As a result, people may experience reduced food cravings and less frequent uncontrolled eating habits, resulting in some weight loss. However, the studies were done on patients with chronic stress. (10) Also, most results were based on at least 225 mg of ashwagandha, but this supplement likely contains significantly less since it’s part of a 177 mg blend shared with other ingredients.
  • Olive Leaf Extract: Olive leaves come from the Olea europaea tree, the source of olives and olive oil. One 2021 study showed that those taking 250 mg on a calorie-restricted diet experienced reduced body mass index, fat mass, and body weight. Vitauthority likely has significantly less of this ingredient than what was used in the study. (11)
  • Fucoxanthin: A naturally derived compound found in specific seaweed and algae. Although it is recognized for its potential positive effects on health, including its involvement in supporting weight management and metabolism, no human studies can confirm such benefits.
  • Grains of Paradise Extract: A seed and spice native to West Africa, also known as Guinea grains or melegueta pepper. A main active component of grains of paradise is 6-paradol. This phytochemical is found to have anti-obesity and fat regulating effects in animal studies. Other studies showed that 30–40 grams of daily grains of paradise supplementation may help decrease stored-up fat that accumulates deep in your abdomen and whole-body energy expenditure (the amount of energy you use for various activities). (12, 13)

Cellulite Control Matrix

  • Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid): Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a component present in all of the organs and connective tissues in the body, with the skin containing about 50% of the body’s total hyaluronic acid. There aren’t studies to show that oral supplementation of HA can help reduce cellulite directly. Instead, studies show that hyaluronic acid may significantly increase skin moisture and reduce the signs of facial aging. Additionally, studies show that supplementation with HA decreases crow’s feet wrinkles. (14, 15) HA is a good ingredient in this formulation as it improves skin appearance. However, HA was typically injected when treating cellulite.
  • SOD B Dimpless (Melon Juice Concentrate): One small study of 21 women taking this ingredient showed that 40 mg of oral supplementation with SOD B Dimpless helped reduce cellulite on the thighs after 56 days of consecutive use. It’s important to know that this study was the only one used to evaluate this ingredient, was funded by the ingredient’s manufacturers, and more research needs to be done on this ingredient. (16)

Safety Considerations

The ingredients in Vitauthority Multi Collagen Burn are generally safe for most people as long as you take this supplement as instructed. Otherwise, consuming this supplement in larger quantities than appropriate may put these ingredients in unsafe amounts, which may cause unwanted side effects.

Because this supplement contains collagen derived from fish and animal sources, it may not be suitable for those who have allergies to specific foods or are following a vegan diet.

Also, the SOD B Dimpless present in this supplement had only one small study (referenced above) and has not been tested for safety over the long term.

Before starting any new supplement, be sure to speak to your doctor to ensure it’s safe based on your medical history. 

What Is the Cost?

On the brand’s official website, a bottle of Vitauthority Multi Collagen Burn costs $60 or $45 with a subscription. The cost per canister does not decrease if you order more at once. Standard shipping is always free within the US.

The company offers a 60-day money-back guarantee minus the shipping costs to send it back and a 15% return fee. You can pause, modify, or cancel your subscription at any time by doing so at least 24 hours before your next shipment gets sent out.

Vitauthority Multi Collagen Burn contains five types of collagen from four different sources. However, there is no substantial evidence that this will benefit you more than collagen powders with only two types.

When it comes to the actual collagen amount, Multi Collagen Burn has the lowest amount among the products we evaluated. This is not necessarily bad because various studies have shown that supplementing with 2.5 g to 10 g of collagen daily may benefit your skin and joint health.

However, there is also some evidence that supplementing with larger amounts of collagen can provide additional benefits. Perhaps that is why even Vitauthority recommends taking two doses of their product for optimum results. But if you take this route, it doubles your cost of using this product (about $120 monthly).

Multi Collagen Burn does include additional ingredients for weight loss and cellulite reduction, which makes it unique. However, with no solid evidence that these ingredients work or are in an effective dosage, we don’t think paying for them makes any sense.

Lastly, Vitauthority lacks third-party certification, which tests the product for purity and verifies that it contains what it states on the label. We believe having a third-party testing certification is an essential indication of a quality product.

Based on what discussed so far, here are our recommendations:

  • For best value multi-collagen powder: Vitauthority Multi Collagen Peptides provides better value than Multi Collagen Burn. It has all the ingredients you need, and none of which you don’t, at a significantly lower cost.
  • For a multi-collagen supplement with third-party certification: CB Multi Collagen Protein Powder is your best choice. It contains five types of collagen and is NSF Certified. It is more expensive than Vitauthority Multi Collagen Peptides, but has double the dose of collagen.
  • For the highest-dosed collagen supplement with third-party certification: Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides Advanced is a winner here. Yes, it only contains two types of collagen and is more expensive per serving, but it has the highest collagen amount and is NSF Certified. If you double the Vitauthority Multi Collagen Peptides dosage for optimum benefit, the price would be higher than Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides.
