Frequently Asked Questions

✿   Is there a difference between hydrolyzed collagen and collagen peptides?  

Hydrolyzed collagen and collagen peptides are two names for the same ingredient, there is no difference. Hydrolyzed collagen is collagen that has been broken down into collagen peptides. Collagen naturally occurs in the form of long twisted fibers that are difficult for the body to digest. Collagen peptides are created by special enzymes that break hard-to-digest collagen fibers into small pieces in a hydrolysis reaction. These short collagen pieces, or peptides, are quickly absorbed and easy for the body to use in building new collagen.  

✿   What are the benefits of type I collagen? 

Type I collagen is the building block of our skin’s structure, making up around 80% of our skin’s dermal layer. Our bodies produce collagen naturally, but its production begins to decrease as we age. Collagen supplementation has been shown to be beneficial for maintaining healthy and hydrated skin. Marine collagen is composed mostly of type I collagen and is rich in unique, specialized amino acids that have targeted benefits for skin health and support the body’s natural production of collagen. 

✿   Can I take Collagen Elixir if I am pregnant or breastfeeding? 

While Collagen Elixir contains food-based ingredients that may be suitable for pregnant or nursing women, it’s always best to consult with your doctor before using any dietary supplements. 

✿   At what age can someone start to consume Collagen Elixir? 

Collagen Elixir is suitable for people ages 16 and up. 

✿   How many servings should I take per day? 

Isagenix recommends one serving of Collagen Elixir each day. 

✿   Can men take Collagen Elixir? 

Absolutely! We are all made up of collagen and experience the same effects from the natural decline in collagen production through the aging process. 

✿   Can I take Collagen Elixir if I am allergic to fish? 

No, Collagen Elixir is not suitable for individuals with fish allergies. 

✿   Where is marine collagen sourced? 

The marine collagen in Collagen Elixir is sourced from wild–caught, cold–water fish from waters off the coast of Norway following strict, environmentally friendly practices. 

✿   How does Isagenix assure the purity of the hydrolyzed collagen peptides? 

The hydrolyzed collagen peptides in Collagen Elixir are derived from Scandinavian, cold–water cod, pollock, and haddock that are generally lower in mercury compared to top-of-the-food-chain fish like tuna and swordfish. Once the collagen has been purified to hydrolyzed collagen peptides, the raw material is tested for mercury and heavy metals to ensure purity, quality, and safety. In addition to the raw material testing, Isagenix sends every finished batch of Collagen Elixir for third-party independent testing, which includes testing for mercury and heavy metals. 

✿   Does Isagenix have other collagen products?

Isagenix strives to create the best collagen supplements and formulates each of them with a specific goal in mind. Collagen Elixir is designed to create beauty from within. Other Isagenix collagen supplements include Collagen Bone Broth, a post-workout supplement AMPED Repair, and a joint support formula.

✿   Is Collagen Elixir packaging recyclable? 

Yes, all Collagen Elixir packaging is 100% recyclable. Please dispose of the glass bottle and box responsibly.
