Collagenate Frequently Asked Questions
HOW CAN COLLAGENATE® HELP ME LOSE WEIGHT?
Collagen, in general, will probably not help you lose weight. However, Collagenate® is different. We work with one of the top collagen experts in the country to obtain this high quality, bio-available supplement. Collagenate is specially formulated so that your body can utilize the collagen protein to assist in repairing. This improvement in repairing results in a better muscle quality, which in turn enables your body to burn more calories and fat! This means an improved metabolism naturally, with NO stimulants!
HOW IS COLLAGENATE® DIFFERENT FROM OTHER DIETS AND WEIGHT LOSS PRODUCTS?
Collagenate contains NO stimulants, NO diuretics, and NO laxatives. Collagenate works on a different mechanism than most other diets or diet products. Collagenate is feeding your body and working with your body to improve the
metabolism naturally. Collagenate promotes a true, safe, fat loss, so that the body can lose just the fat and keep its muscle. NO deceiving water or muscle loss here and NO yo-yo diet syndrome! With Collagenate®, people lose fat and inches with no loss of muscle. This means there will NOT be a rebound over-weight gain caused by Collagenate®. Our customers tend to keep the weight off!
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO LOSE WEIGHT?
Some will experience noticeable weight loss within the few couple weeks whereas for others it may work internally first. Some will lose steadily at a very slow rate and some will lose quickly, plateau for a while, and then continue to lose. Every body is different. A small percentage of the population will not experience weight reductions with Collagenate® possibly due to other conditions in their body that need to be addressed. Those, however, will benefit from the ingredients in Collagenate® much in the same way they benefit from taking vitamin or mineral supplements. Collagen is the main structural protein in our body that makes up our hair, skin, nails, ligaments and joints. Many will notice improvements in these areas. As with most natural products, it is best to take Collagenate for at least 2 – 3 months to see what it will do for you. Many then choose to continue taking it for the collagen and anti-aging benefits.
HOW DO I TAKE COLLAGENATE® FOR OPTIMUM WEIGHT LOSS?
One tablespoon Collagenate with water on an empty stomach. Collagenate needs to absorb with water on an empty stomach. It can be taken right at bedtime or first thing in the morning, or anytime you have a 3-hour empty stomach. Our first recommendation is to try Collagenate at bedtime; if that is not working well, then try Collagenate first thing in the morning (or in the middle of the night). If you are taking Collagenate in the morning, let it absorb for 30 minutes before drinking coffee or eating breakfast. Collagenate can be taken both night-time and morning for those needing extra collagen benefits! You can mix Collagenate with a little water, drink it, and then follow with a full glass of water OR you can put the tablespoon (1/2 oz) of Collagenate in the glass of water.
WILL THIS HELP MY ARTHRITIS &/OR JOINT PAIN?
Collagen is the main protein that makes up our ligaments and joints. As we grow older, we lose collagen and therefore may experience joint pain. Many have found that Collagenate helps their joints more than other supplements they have tried.
WHAT IF I DO NOT WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT?
Collagenate will NOT make a thin person thinner. It is NOT a drug; it is a healthy nutritional supplement. The body knows where it is needed. Our hair, skin, nails, ligaments and joints are made of collagen. Unfortunately, as we grow older we lose collagen. Therefore, we consider Collagenate to be necessary for optimum health and it has numerous anti-aging benefits.
HOW DO I TAKE COLLAGENATE® FOR ENERGY AND STAMINA?
Most people find that when they take Collagenate at night, they sleep better and then have better energy the next day. However, many have found that they get extra endurance and stamina when they take Collagenate first thing in the morning or 30 minutes before a work out. You can see how Collagenate works best for you!
DO I NEED TO REFRIGERATE?
No, not if you are using the bottle within a month. However, many like the taste better cold and it will stay fresh longer (up to 6 months) in the refrigerator. Unopened, sealed bottles should be stored at room temperature and are good for at least two years.
CAN I TAKE IT IF I’M USING OTHER VITAMINS AND MINERALS?
Of course! We suggest that if you take other nutritional supplements you take them with a meal or at another time in the day. Collagenate should be taken only with water on an empty stomach.
WHAT IF I HAVE DIABETES, HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE OR ANOTHER MEDICAL CONDITION OR TAKE MEDICATION?
We have worked with Collagenate for over 12 years and there have been no contraindications with any medications or diseases that we know of. It is simply a specially formulated protein supplement. However, if there is any concern, we recommend that you show the ingredients to your medical professional and see if there is any reason why you should not take it. If you are taking a medication or herb, we suggest that it be taken 30 minutes before or after taking Collagenate.
WHERE DOES COLLAGEN COME FROM?
It comes from the connective tissue of cows (the tissue between the skin and the muscle). The collagen is put through a special enzymatic process and combined with an organically grown Aloe Vera Juice for maximum absorption. We work with one of the top collagen experts in the country to provide this uniquely absorbable formula. Many have tried other “collagen” supplements and found that they simply did not work. Whole collagen alone will not give the same results. We also have a fish formula available.
WHAT ARE POTASSIUM BENZOATE AND POTASSIUM SORBATE?
They are mild, naturally occurring preservatives.
WHO SHOULD NOT TAKE COLLAGENATE®?
Pregnant and lactating women, and prepubescent children should not use it. Many mothers have gotten great results in getting their figure in shape with Collagenate by taking it once they are finished breast-feeding.
