What could be better than a world-class collagen blend that makes your skin glow and your hair and nails grow? If you answered, “nothing!” Well, the rest of the world agreed…That is until we created the world’s first thermogenic fat burner fused with 5 types of collagen!
Collagen- So, what exactly is collagen? Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body. Almost every animal and organism that has more than one cell relies on collagen for some form of structure. Still, just because a multicellular amoeba needs something, does that mean you do too? Definitely.
Collagen makes up 25% of the protein in your body. The majority of the collagen pack together in long structures called fibrils. These fibrils are flexible and strong (some are even pound for pound stronger than steel!). They give your skin elasticity, provide structural support for bones, joints, arteries, and cells, and help with wound healing.
There are over 28 different types of collagen! We’ve compiled the most common and beneficial types in one formula for optimal health and convenience!
Collagen Type I- This comprises 80% of the collagen in your skin and is the most prominent form of collagen in the body. You can use this to support healthy hair, nails, and skin.
Collagen Type II- This is the most prominent form of collagen in cartilage (the rubber-like tissue in your ears, nose, and in between your bones). You can use this for joint pain and arthritis support.
Collagen Type III- This makes up about 10% of the collagen in your body. It helps provide support and structure to your organs and arteries. This can be used with Type I collagen to support healthy skin.
Collagen Type V- This collagen type helps Type I and Type III collagen form strong fibrils and is necessary for strong and healthy tissue formation. Type V is also an important structure component of cell membranes. This collagen helps provide structural support from the cell level all the way up to your skin!

Collagen Type X- Beyond having the coolest name in collagen, Type X also has secret skills that the other four don’t! Type X is part of the network-forming subset of collagens. They form a strong criss-cross of collagen molecules to provide structural support. Type X helps create collagen networks at the end of bones to help with healthy bone growth and development.
Burn- Diet and exercise are the basis of any fat loss plan. Still, that doesn’t mean we can’t use a little help. We chose the best safe and effective ingredients to help you burn away the pounds while feeling great!
CLA- Conjugated linoleic acid is a type of fatty found in meat and dairy and is a great tool for fat loss and healthy weight management. CLA may help reduce weight gain and reduce body fat by increasing fat breakdown and reducing fat cell growth. One study on overweight women found that consuming CLA over 6 months can help maintain a healthy weight and even prevent weight gain during the holiday months. That’s right. Santa’s cookies can’t sabotage our goals this year!
Green Tea Extract- Green tea contains special molecules that help dilate blood vessels, increase blood flow, and may even help burn stubborn fat! A meta-analysis of Green Tea catechins found that when Green Tea and caffeine are combined, they can help stimulate fat breakdown. That’s my cup of tea!
Cayenne Pepper Fruit Extract- Yes, the spicy chilli pepper can help you lose weight. Scientists have discovered that ingestion of capsaicin can cause changes in how our muscle cells transfer energy. The active ingredient in the cayenne pepper, capsaicin, bonds to a specific protein and helps burn off energy as heat. So, while you may be sweating from a spicy sandwich, your body is actually burning extra calories as heat!
