honestly all so good!

I’ve been a long time collagen fan and tried a bunch of different kinds but never found one I could just drink straight up or I would put it in my morning smoothie and it would ruin the whole thing! Original is probably my favorite since you can put it in anything and it still tastes great!

Makes my hair grow

I’m in college and my biggest fear is that I’d lose hair. When I started drinking crushed tonic, I drank it mostly for the probiotics, because I heard that it was good for weight loss and increasing my metabolism. I was right, but what I was even happier about, was that my beard and hair started growing more thicker and fuller. Even my eyelashes are longer, which my girlfriend gets jealous about.

super in love with your product!!!

Legit obsessed. I am not just saying this... I have tried a lot of different collagen products and this by far blows the other ones out of the park. I cannot taste it in my coffee, which was the biggest issue I had with other types. Cannot wait to try the other flavors and mix in with my morning smoothies. Also, branding on point. Seriously cannot say enough good things— So impressive. The "have a crush on us?" I died. So good.

Amazing Results

I am a 26 year old man, and have not had a solid anti-aging routine. However, Crushed Tonic has been ingrained into my daily routine. I can't go a day without it. Not only have I seen benefits on my face, but my hair is thicker! I have even stopped using prescription hair growth products because of Crushed Tonic's results. Thank you so much!!

Sleeves of Health

These have kept me on track since the beginning. I’m a Mother if 3 (4,6,8) and I haven’t missed a beat, gotten sick or lost my mood...I’m hooked!
