Frequently Asked Questions
Ingredients & Mixture
Obvi uses micro doses of sucralose verses higher doses of other sweeteners such as stevia, or monk fruit to get the same delicious taste. Using higher does of stevia and other sweeteners was not something we wanted to do as it purely defeats the purpose of alternative sweeteners, and the microdose of sucralose does the job.
There are a lot of scary stories and misinformation surrounding sucralose. You may have heard artificial sweeteners are dangerous. Maybe you’ve heard that they trick the body into thinking sugar is coming, causing an insulin spike? Well, we here at Obvi are here to separate fact from fiction. Sucralose is about 600 times as sweet as sugar but offers no caloric value. Thus, sucralose is a great way to make your food or beverage sweeter without adding sugar and calories. However, some people think that sucralose may not be worth saving a few calories. There are recent claims that sucralose may harm our gut microflora. Our gut health is involved in our metabolism and immune system, so anything that negatively impacts our gut health is a big no-no! Luckily, these claims are not supported by data. Studies showing high levels of chronic exposure (eating a lot of sucralose over a long time) found that sucralose wasn't metabolized by the organism. This means that their gut microflora did not metabolize the sucralose, nor did their gut microflora adapt to significant long-term ingestion of sucralose. Further studies have shown there is no build-up or storage of sucralose in your body. Additionally, sucralose has been labeled non-genotoxic (a material that can be mutagenic or carcinogenic). Three separate in-vivo have shown sucralose is not mutagenic or carcinogenic. These findings are supported by genotoxicity experts and the Scientific Committee on Food. Overall, sucralose is exalted for its ability to replace sugar in the diet. The American Diabetes Association and the FDA recommends sucralose as an acceptable substitute for sugar. Sucralose has been extensively studied and found safe (and tasty) for continued consumption. Our goal at obvi is to help you grow to be your best you. That’s why we only put ingredients in our product that we trust. We do have to warn you of one side effect of sucralose….you’ll have trouble stopping after only one scoop!

Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body, accounting for about a third of its protein composition. It's one of the major building blocks of bones, skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Collagen is also found in many other body parts, including blood vessels, corneas and teeth. You can think of it as the "glue" that holds all these things together. Sounds important, right? Well that’s because it is. As you age, your body produces less and lower-quality collagen.The best source of fueling your body with excess collagen is from Animal products such as bone broth, gelatin, chicken skin and pork skin which are very high in collagen. Studies have shown, supplemental collagen may help improve skin texture and muscle mass and reduce osteoarthritis pain along with many other benefits.
