Plantfusion Collagen Builder Reviews – Is it VEGAN?

Plant-Fusion-Collagen-Thumbnail4

Plantfusion is a US company devoted to providing nutrition-packed, plant-based supplements without compromising on taste. Having noticed a gap in the market for products free from processed additional ingredients, they set to work developing their own range of, 100% natural, nutritional aids.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you will have heard about the wonders collagen can do for your overall health and appearance.

Last month I decided to put Plantfusion’s products to the test and purchased a few tubs of their collagen builder. This Plant Fusion Collagen Builder Review will cover my experience with the powder, as well as taking a look at what the reviews say.

Before I do this, let’s learn more about the Plantfusion range.

What Plantfusion sell

Plantfusion-Collagen-Builder

Plantfusion offers its complete plant collagen builder in stores across America. It comes in 3 flavours. Creamy vanilla bean, rich chocolate, and a natural-stevia-free option (this is the one I chose).

And in 12-serving ($34.99), or 20-serving ($53.99) sized tubs (or individual sachets if you don’t want to measure it out yourself).

If you buy directly from the Plantfusion website you will see they offer a subscription service that enables you to set your delivery schedule for the supplement you need, and even saves you 10%. 

But, the 12-serving tub is more expensive than it is on Amazon ($43.99), and at the time of writing, is the only size option available from their site.

Plantfusion Collagen Ingredients

Plantfusion has developed a unique nutritional blend not found anywhere else. It includes not only the collagen inducing ingredients found in other plant-based collagen builders but the nutrients that keep the protein hydrated and functioning within the body.

Inside each tub of collagen builder you will find:

  • Plantfusion’s own amino acid-infused protein blend, and proprietary enzyme blend.
  • OxyPhyte White Tea Extract: which contains the antioxidants needed to protect the skin. (1)
  • Saberry fruit extract: proven to promote collagen in the body. (2)
  • Proline and Glycine: Amino acids that enhance natural collagen production. (3)
  • Hyaluronic Acid: to promote collagen production for smoother skin. (4)
  • Ceramide Oils: some people claim can improve Collagen levels but I couldn't find any studies.

In addition, the Plantfusion complete plant collagen builder range is free from gluten, dairy, peanuts, yeast, sugar, and all artificial flavours and colouring.

So it fits in well with almost everyone’s dietary restrictions. The unflavoured variation even promises no stevia.

PlantFusion Collagen Customer Reviews

An initial look at the reviews on Amazon is pretty promising, averaging 4.1 out of 5, with 64% awarding 5-stars to this supplement (January 2020).

Many of the top reviews praise Plantfusion for offering a vegan-solution that is difficult to find elsewhere. They also pretty unanimously agree that the flavours taste great, which I won’t disagree with.

My unflavoured version was as unflavoured as promised, and my friend has attested to the claims that the chocolate option tastes amazing.

Some PlantFusion Reviewers mentioned they have seen improvements in their skin, another observation I can get on board with having watched my dermatitis clear up whilst taking the product.

On the other end of the spectrum, a minority of reviewers have complained about the ‘strong aftertaste’ and ‘grainy’ texture, neither of which I noticed. I was unable to find any negative comments on the effectiveness of the collagen builder in any of the reviews.

My Experience With PlantFusion Collagen

After looking at the Plantfusion Collagen Reviews, I was feeling good about testing Plantfusion’s plant-based collagen builder for myself. Wanting the most natural option possible, I went for the unflavoured version and began mixing it in with my post-gym almond milk protein shakes every day.

The taste was fine, it was unflavoured so I won’t say it was great. It just didn’t change the taste of my shake at all. My vegan friend did join me aboard the Planfusion train with the chocolate flavour in her shakes, and she did say the flavour was great.

For a while, I didn’t know if the supplement was making any difference, to be honest, but after about a month I noticed a huge improvement in the dermatitis I’d be suffering with for a long time. I can’t 100% guarantee that this was down to the Plantfusion collagen builder, but I can’t think of anything else I was doing differently, and nothing else I’ve tried has shifted it.

Final Thoughts

As far as I’m concerned, although collagen-stimulating supplements, in general, don’t generate as strong a result as consuming collagen directly.

If you are looking for a vegan, plant-based option, you won’t go far wrong with Plantfusions collagen builder as it seems to be one of the better ones on the market. And I do believe my skin has seen an improvement from taking it consistently.

My main qualm would have to be the price tag. At over $43.99 for less than 2 week supply on the company website, it’s on the pricy side. Even after opting for the subscription, the price still hovers around the $40 mark. That’s quite a lot to fork out every couple of weeks.

After my experience, I would recommend for those looking for a vegan alternative to an animal-based collagen supplement. For me (and others) it made a difference, just don’t expect miracles.
