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 working with your body to improve your metabolism naturally. Collagenate® promotes a true, safe, fat loss, so you can lose just the fat and keep your muscle and bone. Better muscle tone and less fat! NO deceiving water or muscle loss; which means NO yo-yo diet syndrome and NO rebound over-weight gain if you stop taking it. Our customers tend to keep the weight off.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO LOSE WEIGHT?
Some will experience noticeable weight loss in the first few weeks where as 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. Everybody is different. A small percentage of the population will not experience weight reduction 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 product, it is best to take Collagenate® for at least 2 - 4 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® mixed in water on an empty stomach at bedtime. Put 1 tablespoon Collagenate® (½ oz or 15mL) in a half cup water and have it ready on your nightstand or close to your bed. Drink it right at bedtime on at least a 3-hour empty stomach; follow with plain water if you can and go to sleep. It is the first 90 minutes of your sleep that your body repairs the most, so by taking Collagenate® at bedtime it is active in your system during this repair cycle. Many find they also sleep better and deeper when they take it at bedtime. If it is not working well with your night-time schedule, Collagenate® can be taken whenever it is convenient; optimally on an empty stomach with water. Collagenate® can be taken 2 – 4 times/day for those needing extra collagen benefits!
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 with 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 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 workout. 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! Other supplements can be taken at a different time of the day, 30 minutes apart from Collagenate®. Collagenate® absorbs best alone with water.
WHAT IF I HAVE DIABETES, HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE OR ANOTHER MEDICAL CONDITION OR TAKE MEDICATION?
There are no contraindications that we know of for this formula. 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 U.S. cows (the tissue between the skin and muscle). The collagen is put through a special enzymatic process and combined with an organically grown Aloe Vera 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 (powder and liquid), as well as various types of collagen (Type 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc.) with little or no noticeable results. Try Collagenate®; see and feel the results! We also have a fish formula available.
WHO SHOULD NOT TAKE COLLAGENATE®?
Pregnant and lactating women, and prepubescent children should not use it.
