QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Why marine collagen powder?

  1. It's been clinically proven to improve skin hydration.
  2. It's 1.5x more easily absorbed by your body than bovine collagen and we want you to receive the maximum benefits that collagen has to offer.
  3. It's also sustainable, because the collagen is derived from fish skin and scales that ordinarily would be thrown away.
  4. Powders are the most effective way to deliver the collagen.

We heard that there are A TON of variety when it comes to collagen. Can you tell me about your collagen?

You're right. Not all collagen is created equal; some are more effective, some are better tasting, and some are safer than others. Some have been tested, and some have not.

Our collagen has been clinically proven to improve skin hydration, total skin extensibility and perceived wrinkle reduction (see our study here).

How do you source the collagen?

Our collagen comes from a farm in France, where it was veterinary controlled. Each step (from the farm to you) has been controlled, and is traceable.

 

Why probiotics and why 1 billion?

Probiotics are live good bacteria that helps maintain good digestive health.

1B of probiotics = 20 servings of super premium yogurt

Why biotin?

Because it is a vitamin that is required for healthy skin, hair, and nail formation and supports hair growth and nail strength.

Are there added sweeteners or sugar in your drink mixes?

Our crushes are made with marine collagen from sustainably sourced tilapia in France, probiotics, biotin, and natural herbal extracts or superfoods. Nothing more.

The 1g of sugar refers to the naturally occurring sugar found in lucuma. The 45 calories per stick refers to the 10g of protein from our marine collagen that we include in each of our stick servings. There are no added sweeteners or preservatives. No stevia, high fructose corn syrup, fillers, or anything like that here.

Where can I find out the calorie content of your drink mixes?

All our flavors contain 45 calories per stick. These calories are from the 10g of protein from the marine collagen in each stick. You can explore the nutritional content of our drink mixes in more detail on the products pages for Matcha / Turmeric Ginger & Cinnamon/ Lucuma.

Are your drink mixes vegetarian?

No. Our products contain marine collagen derived from fish, and do not contain beef or pork. 

Unfortunately, there's currently no EFFECTIVE vegetarian or vegan source of collagen. We're working on veggie friendly alternatives for our herbivore friends, and will keep you posted of any new developments.

Can I take your drink mixes if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?

Yes, extra collagen are actually sometimes recommended for pregnant women - but consult your doctor before trying our drink mixes or if you have any questions. 

Where are your drink mixes made?

They're made in the USA.

What's the best way for me to try out your drink mixes?

Unless you know exactly what you want, we suggest starting with an assorted box. That way, you can absorb the range of benefits from the different herbs and superfoods and decide what you like best.

It works out cheaper for you to order a box of 24 than a box of 15 - that's because it costs us the same amount to ship you both sizes. We like to be upfront about that and would recommend that you try our 30 day challenge because it is better value and it's the ideal length of time to see best results. 

When should I take your drink mixes?

For best results, drink one stick daily. You can drink it morning, afternoon, or night - anytime.

What should I expect?

Our drink mix formula includes marine collagen peptides, probiotics, biotin and then natural, functional flavors such as matcha, turmeric, cinnamon & ginger, and lucuma. These blends were carefully designed to improve skin hydration and extensibility, encourage healthy hair growth, support digestive and immune health, and provide natural sources of energy, immunity, and sweetness. For best results, drink one stick daily for 30 consecutive days. 

How should I store your drink mixes?

In a cool, dry place. Cupboard or shelf or handbag or gymbag - they can go anywhere. They have a shelf life of two years. 

How do I place an order? 

You can add a kit to your cart and checkout online safely and securely. You can also use our Facebook Messenger service to place an order by message.

How do I know when my order has shipped?

You will receive an email to let you know once your kit has shipped, or a Facebook message if you ordered via our Facebook Messenger service.

Do you offer a free trial?

We don't, and here's why - we could send you 1-3 sticks, but because skin cells take 2-4 weeks to turnover, you would be unlikely to see benefits from only taking 1-3 sticks. We are results-driven and want you to love what you see in the mirror at the 30 day mark, so won't sell you amounts that won't make a difference. 

How can I ask questions about my order?

Send us an email at hello@crushedtonic.com, send us a message here on our website, or message us on Facebook. You can also ask us questions on Instagram - shoot us a DM or leave questions on our posts, and we'll get back to you there.
