Yume Plus is a collagen drink that is manufactured in Thailand. Occasionally, the production standards are not as high compared to Europe or the US, but we decided to take an in-depth look into it nonetheless.
At the moment of writing this, the product costs around £54 on Amazon UK and will last you for 15 days. After crunching the numbers, this boils down to £3.60 a day, which is just way too expensive if we compare it to the competing products. Ideally, we’re looking for something that doesn’t exceed £2 per day, and this is almost two times as much.
It’s rather uncommon to see a powder-based drink to be priced that highly, matching the typical prices you’d expect to encounter with those type of collagen drinks that are ready-made. We believe the high price has a lot to do with the amount of collagen the product contains (20000 mg), which is twice the amount our bodies are able to consume, which makes it a complete waste of money.
Despite our best efforts, we were unable to locate the official site (if one even exists in the first place), so we didn’t see any kind of money-back guarantee. It’s possible a third party distributor might have you covered, but the ones we checked out don’t have one either. This leaves a slight dent in this category’s grade because some of the top rated products come with money-back guarantees for the ease of mind.
Sadly, based on all these downsides, we must award a low grade in the value category.
As mentioned, the daily serving of Yume Plus contains 20000 mg of collagen, which looks great on paper, but in practice, it really isn’t. Collagen drinks tend to be the most effective somewhere around 7000 mg and 10000 mg, anything more would be rendered obsolete by your body being unable to absorb it. The problem with this product is not a lack of potency, but the fact that it’s just overkill, with nearly half of the collagen pretty much going to waste in the body. But because it still hits that 10.000mg of collagen per serving, we give it maximum points here.
This product is a powder and not a ready-made drink. Basically, powders take additional time to prepare in comparison with ready-made drinks, so the comfort level is not as high. Because of this, we have to mark it down.
One of the more unique features of this collagen powder is that it’s advertised as skin whitening collagen powder, so if this is what you want, then maybe it’s worth considering.
We do have to mention this product contains some diverse ingredients that increase its overall value:
– L- Glutathione (A great antioxidant, helps get rid of free radicals found in your body.)
– L-Cysteine (Improves your mental performance, prevents several cardiovascular diseases, and helps detoxify the liver.)
– L-Glutamine (Helps with weight loss, muscle growth, and helps treat leaky gut.)
– L-Glycine (Energises your body by providing additional glucose and improves the functioning of your central nervous system.)
– Acerola Cherry extract (Contains a lot of vitamin C, which is essential for keeping your immune system strong.)
– Alpha Lipoic Acid (Helps lower blood sugar and repair certain types of nerve damage.)
– Zinc Amonic Acid (Great for your muscles, bones, as well as hair and skin health.)
– Inulin (Improves the health of your digestive system.)
Finally, the blue color of the drink does tend to raise some concerns. It looks rather unnatural, which makes us question what else is in there, and is it all good for us?
Each daily serving is neatly packed in its own plastic bag, which is not also convenient (because you don’t have to scoop it yourself), but also doesn’t overstep the boundaries of feasible when it comes to the preservation of our environment. Because of this, we are happy to give maximum points here.
We’re not particularly impressed with this product. While it does have some diverse ingredients, that quickly gets overshadowed by its expensive price and overkill in the daily dosage of collagen.
All of this combined, we strongly encourage you to compare some of the best collagen drinks in the world. That way, you will really gain a good understanding of what makes a top quality product.
