The Vitauthority Facebook Community hosts a group of women actively pursuing all manner of lifestyles, routines, health goals and journeys. At nearly 30,000 strong, we see a wide variety of questions, testimonials, and amazing reviews of our products in use. One of the biggest and most frequently asked questions pertains to our women’s weight loss supplements we offer in our lineup.
Today we’re going to delve into our top two most popular supplements for weight loss:
Multi Collagen Burn and Melt Thermogenic...
We don't like to gatekeep, so let's hop right into it!
What’s the difference between Multi Collagen Burn and Melt?
Multi Collagen Burn is a women’s collagen supplement that supports weight loss management with additional thermogenic ingredients. Here’s a breakdown of the main ingredients and the various health benefits they can support:
5 Types of Collagen:
Types I, II, III, V, and X sourced from grass-fed beef, farm-raised chicken, wild caught fish, and eggshell membrane. This supports hair, skin, nails, joints, and digestion.*
Ashwagandha has many health benefits, we incorporate it into Burn for its cortisol support. By helping keep cortisol levels in a healthy range, this can help mitigate stress-related weight fluctuations.*
Chromium (as Chromium Picolinate):
Many studies have shown that Chromium Picolinate helps support blood sugar levels within a healthy range. Managing your blood glucose levels can have a positive effect on insulin, as insulin mirrors glucose. When the amount of insulin is within a normal, healthy range, cells can burn fat more effectively. This can lead to sustained weight loss if managed long-term.*
Grains of Paradise and Fucoxanthin:
These ingredients support metabolic function and thermogenesis. In short, they help rev up your system by transporting fatty acids to your cells to use as energy, instead of allowing them to be stored. Studies have demonstrated that supplementing with these ingredients may help increase resting energy expenditure, reduce body weight, and decrease abdominal fat storage.*
Olive Leaf Extract:
Supports healthy thyroid function - a key factor in helping support all those other hormones controlled and affected by the thyroid. Early studies show that the oleuropein in olive leaf extract prevents unwanted weight gain and reduces the risk of obesity.*
SOD B Dimpless®:
A collagen industry exclusive ingredient to Vitauthority, this super antioxidant provides amazing anti-aging benefits for your skin. SOD B Dimpless is the ONLY ingredient on the market clinically proven through human trials to help smooth the appearance of visible cellulite.*
Melt Thermogenic is a women’s weight loss supplement that includes a list of science-backed ingredients for metabolism support, caloric burn, and energy. Here’s a breakdown of the main ingredients and the various health benefits they can support:
Helps move fatty acids to your cells to be burned for energy, providing a boost to metabolism. A more efficient metabolism significantly aids your weight loss program because you’ll increase the amount of calories you’re able to burn—even at rest.*
Chromax® Chromium Picolinate:
A highly bioavailable form of chromium supported by 35 human clinical studies affirming its benefits for weight management, body composition, appetite control, metabolism, energy support, and more.*
A proprietary, plant derived compound. Human studies have demonstrated that InnoSlim® regulates glucose, fat cell, and muscle metabolisms and reduces glucose absorption and increases fat cell burning and muscle glucose uptake.*
The body relies on a variety of vitamins to maintain optimal health, and B vitamins are a huge source. If you want to lose excess weight, vitamin B12 is not only energy-enhancing, it has also been linked to weight loss.*
A brown seaweed extract. Studies in both animals and humans have demonstrated that supplementing with fucoxanthin increases resting energy expenditure (calorie burning) and reduces body weight.*
Green Tea Extract:
Green tea extract may aid weight loss by increasing the number of calories your body burns through a process called thermogenesis.*
Choline Bitartrate, Caffeine Anhydrous, L-Theanine Cognition Blend:
In our recent Melt 60 Day Challenge conducted from Oct 2023 - Jan 2024:
- 100% of participants agreed that Melt provided jitter-free energy**
- 87% felt Melt increased their focus**
- 82% of participants felt Melt decreased their appetite.**
Does collagen help you lose weight?
While we’ve answered this question more in-depth in a previous blog, the short answer is that while collagen alone does not provide direct weight loss benefits, it can provide some indirect weight management benefits such as…
- Helping you feel fuller so that you are less likely to overeat / snack
- Supporting lean muscle and body composition when combined with strength training
- Supporting your digestion so your body can better utilize the nutrients you do eat
- Easing joint discomfort so you can stay active and maintain movement in your day
This is why we’ve combined our multi collagen complex with the additional ingredients listed above in our Multi Collagen Burn to provide effective, science-backed weight management benefits and support.
Which product is better for weight loss?
This very much depends on your overall health goals! If weight management is among the many benefits you are looking for, Multi Collagen Burn may be a great all-around weight loss support supplement.
If you’re looking to get active, start a new exercise program or fitness routine, and need extra energy and caloric burn support then we recommend Melt!
If your ultimate goal is to include supplements into a full weight loss program and journey, the combination of both Multi Collagen Burn and Melt is absolutely the most effective way to go. This leads us into the next question…
Can I take Multi Collagen Burn and Melt together?
Absolutely! While all Vitauthority products are formulated to be safe to use together, Multi Collagen Burn and Melt Thermogenic are a dream-team for anyone with healthy weight goals in mind. These two weight loss supplements pair synergistically and provide comprehensive support for:
- Lean Muscle
- Calorie Burn
- Appetite Suppression
Both products are available in powder and capsule form, which can be used interchangeably to suit your needs, preferences, and routine. Though do keep in mind that Multi Collagen Burn powder contains 7.8g of protein per serving, while the capsules only contain 1g. The capsules still offer a full dose of the thermogenic weight loss support ingredients, but may not provide the satiety benefit users often see from the powder due to the lower protein amount.
What’s the best routine for using both Melt and Multi Collagen Burn?
We recommend taking both products together, up to twice daily, on an empty stomach. It is recommended to take Melt and Multi Collagen Burn first thing in the morning, up to 30 minutes before your first meal. Not only does this allow the ingredients of both to absorb efficiently, but it provides a powerful boost of energy and appetite suppression to help mitigate cravings or overeating throughout the day.
If you feel you would like to take a second dose, we recommend doing so before 3pm, as the caffeine in Melt may affect your sleep if taken too late in the day. The best time of day for a later dose would be either right before lunch, or 30 minutes after you finish lunch (but before 3pm).
While we do offer Multi Collagen Burn in an ENERGY formula that also contains caffeine, we caution against using it in combination with Melt until you know your own personal caffeine tolerance.
One thing to note: The increase of protein in your diet when adding Multi Collagen Burn, and the natural diuretic effect of caffeine will mean an increase of hydration needs! To enable your body to best break down and utilize the protein, as well as balancing out any additional “going” you experience, be sure to increase the amount of water you drink during the day. Failure to hydrate adequately may lead to headaches, water retention, and bloating.
Hydrate. Hydrate. Hydrate!
How soon can I expect to see weight loss results?
Results will always depend on the user's lifestyle, but we strongly recommend taking the product consistently for 60 days to see the best results. You should feel the energy benefits of Melt fairly quickly once you’ve started taking it, but this will also depend on your caffeine tolerance.
As for weight loss, we strongly recommend taking the product consistently for 60 days and ALWAYS suggest following a healthy nutrition plan, drinking plenty of water, keeping active / exercising, and making sure you take the product daily! Something to keep in mind is the weight gain we are trying to rid ourselves of didn't happen in 2-3 weeks, so to expect it to disappear in 2-3 weeks is unrealistic.
As well, most fitness coaches and weight loss professionals recommend not relying on the scale to determine your results or successes. Here are a few ways they recommend tracking your journey to better understand all the changes happening within your body:
- Tracking measurements at waist, hips, thighs, and upper arms (you may lose inches before you lose weight!)
- Using a smart scale and health app on your phone or smart watch to help track other health indicators such as BMI, lean muscle density, water weight, and more.
- How your clothes fit (you may begin to notice your clothing is becoming looser and you fit in smaller sizes before the number on the scale ever changes)
- Keeping aware of how your body feels. Energy levels, your strength, quality of sleep, joint comfort and mobility, and so much more!
What kind of results have women seen from using these products?
The Multi Collagen Burn reviews and Melt Thermogenic reviews absolutely speak for themselves when it comes to seeing weight loss results, it just takes patience, consistency, and following your plan. :)
Take a look at these amazing Multi Collagen Burn before and after testimonials!
"I am 47 years old and had been on blood pressure medicine for years and was over weight and miserable, had suffered from IBS issues and nothing worked no matter how hard I tried. I had seen the ad for Vitauthority on Facebook and thought maybe this might work or was worth a try. I had placed my first order that included the multi collagen burn capsules as well as some others. It took a month or so of consistently using before I started seeing results that I didn’t expect. I use to have a “bubble” butt and my legs and arms were huge and I was miserable and hated how I looked and felt. Slowly at first I noticed my clothes were fitting different and I was getting smaller before I knew it I was really losing weight and my body was changing and I was amazed. I thought maybe this really is working and can work for me. I had become hooked on the multi collagen burn and what it was doing for me. My whole world had changed and I’ve been hooked ever since and so great full for these products. Everything I had never thought was possible has become possible and so much more. I started at 152 lbs and am down to 110.2 today. My legs and arms are so much smaller and all the cellulite I had is now gone for good. I can’t say enough great things about Vitauthority and what the products have done for me. They have become a new normal for me and part of my daily routine. I am in love with my results and amazed every day. This is the smallest and best I’ve ever felt. I have since added several other products and love all of them First picture is before starting Vitauthority and keto (sept 2021) second picture is from July 2022."
