Pharmalux Collagen Extra is a collagen drink that’s manufactured in Germany. Because the production standards are rather high around these parts, we’re very excited to bring you the review of a product that looks very promising indeed!
Finding a site that actually sells this product was not easy, and we could only find one.
If we take the price point from that one, at the time of writing, this would be £34.65. But because delivery will surely cost you £5, in practice, it will cost you £40 in total. The problem is, a single bottle will only last you 17 days, which is far from ideal. After doing a little bit of number crunching, this boils down to £2.35 per day.
It’s far from the most expensive one you’re going to encounter, but regretfully, it’s also not among the cheapest ones either. We like to see that the daily costs linger somewhere below £2 if at all possible, and this one is a tiny bit above. Of course, this knocks the grade down a bit.
Because the official site doesn’t have a money-back guarantee, this also leaves a little bit of a dent in this category’s grade. A third-party supplier may provide it, but there are too many to go through each individual one.
A daily serving has 10.000 mg of collagen in it, which is as potent as it gets! Typically, we’re looking for something in the range of 7000-10000 mg, and this is as potent as it gets while your body is still able to absorb it.
Because the collagen used in the drink is of animal original, however, we do have to deduct a couple of points here. According to the experts’ opinion and our own research, we’re looking for products containing marine collagen, because these have shown to be the most effective.
Because this is a ready-made drink, we’re happy to award maximum points here! Basically, ready-made drinks don’t take as much time to get ready as their powder counterparts, which means they’re much more convenient to use on a daily basis. This is what we like to see because the consumers are more likely to stay motivated if the process is as smooth as possible.
Additionally, the product contains the following ingredients:
– Hyaluronic Acid (Helps regenerate skin and various connective tissues in your body.)
– Vitamin C (Prevents skin wrinkling, several cardiovascular and eye diseases, makes your immune system stronger, and improves your general health.)
– Vitamin B1 (Improves the health of your nervous and cardiovascular system.)
– Vitamin B2 (Your body needs to consume it on a daily basis, because it boosts energy levels, thus increasing your productivity.)
– Vitamin B5 (Helps your body convert food into energy.)
– Vitamin B6 (Improves the health of your skin, liver, eyes, and hair.)
– Magnesium (Strengthens your bones, nervous system, and helps produce more energy from food.)
The taste is rather delicious and feels like a mix between vanilla and strawberry. This means you can consume it directly, but if you prefer to mix it with another kind of drink, you can do that as well.
We like the fact that this particular product comes in a single bottle, which means the materials used in the production process are kept at the bare minimum. This makes sure that the environmentally-friendly aspect of the product stays intact. Therefore, a good grade in this category is a no-brainer.
Taking everything into consideration, this Collagen Extra definitely belongs somewhere in the upper cast of collagen supplement products. The only real downsides are the lack of a money-back guarantee, the not-so-affordable price, and the fact that this is not marine collagen. Apart from that, everything looks rather decent.
Still, due to the shortcomings we discussed in this review, it falls a bit short to really be a top contender among all the different products we’ve reviewed. If you’re going to spend money, we’d rather see you get the most value as you can out of it. Therefore, we invite you to check out our top-rated products.
