YouTonics is a collagen drink manufactured by Bauer Nutrition. The company has been known in the UK for a long time, mainly for its food supplements. Gathering the vast expertise and knowledge they have accumulated over the years, YouTonics is one of their latest products that was introduced to the market mid-2015.
Since manufacturers that are based in the UK typically have very high production values, we are excited to try it out ourselves and bring you this review!
YouTonics helps you save a lot of money if you decide to order in bulk. A single bottle will set you back for £34.95 and last you 9 days, but buying 3 bottles you get another 3 for FREE, costing you £104.85. That covers you for 2 months. Therefore, the daily cost comes down to £1.75, which is very affordable. It also makes sense to buy 6 bottles in one go, because collagen supplements usually take a bit of time before your skin starts showing some visible improvements.
Better yet, its manufacturers are willing to do something that not a lot of them are giving their best effort to do – offering a 60-day money-back guarantee! Essentially, this means you’re free to request your money back if you’re unsatisfied with the product for any reason, and they will refund it without asking you a thing.
This alone bumps the product up by quite a lot in terms of value, since having a money-back guarantee like this means you won’t have to risk a thing by trying it out!
To be the most effective, we are looking for daily collagen intake of anything in the range between 7000 mg and 10000 mg, because these amounts have the highest chance of being absorbed by the body while still retaining the maximum effect. If it’s less than that, it’s not effective enough, and if it exceeds the upper limit, it’s considered to be overkill, since your body probably won’t be able to absorb it all. YouTonics has the higher limit of 10000 mg of collagen, which is at the upper limit of the amount we’re looking for!
YouTonics contains bovine-sourced collagen (animal collagen) and not marine-sourced collagen which absorbs slightly better. Saying that, the manufacturers of YouTonics have added a proprietary blend of its Tri-optimized formula to increase the absorption rates into your body. The formula was designed to help keep your skin hydrated, as well as combating premature ageing and skin imperfections such as fine-lines and wrinkles.
We do have to mention that the product contains collagen type 1 and 2, with the former one being the most beneficial when it comes to improving the overall health of your skin.
The product is a collagen drink, meaning it’s as comfortable to prepare as you can imagine! In short, we prefer ready-made collagen drinks over powders on this site, since the latter take up way more time to prepare, impacting the overall experience in a negative way.
Furthermore, it contains the following ingredients and each of them will improve your health in its own merit:
- Vitamin A (Improves your eyesight and acts as a great antioxidant which helps you get rid of free radicals in your body. It also protects your skin from being damaged.)
- Vitamin C (Prevents skin wrinkling, makes your immune system stronger, and makes you less likely to develop several cardiovascular disorders.)
- Vitamin E (Prevents the onset of cancer, several cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and other health-related problems. It also makes your skin stronger.)
- Amino Acids (Namely: Proline, Hydroxyproline, Arginine, and Glycine. These will help you maintain a healthy level of collagen in your body.)
Despite the manufacturer’s claims, this product has a rather strong taste (which is pretty much to be expected from most collagen drinks). However, you always have the option of mixing it with a juice or another type of drink if you prefer, so this is not really that much of a drawback.
We like “green products” where manufacturers have thought about the environment when designing their products, and since you will only really consume 3 bottles a month, the impact this makes on the environment is negligible. Therefore, we grade it highly in this section.
All of the things considered, this is the best product we’ve reviewed by far. Very affordable as well if you order a 2 months’ worth of supplies and its effectiveness pretty much goes without saying. And what we like the most in this world where manufacturers put themselves above us, the clients, is that the Bauer Nutrition assumes all of the risks by providing a very flexible 60-day money-back guarantee, providing you with more than enough time to try it out and seeing the effects for yourself.
As of right now, this is our #1 rated collagen drink, so you are absolutely encouraged to give it a shot.
