Collagen shot - FAQ
Here are the answers for the most common questions about Collagen shot.
What purposes is Collagen Shot being used for?
Collagen shot is a dietary supplement with collagen, MSM, vitamins and zinc. The combination of active ingredients affects the condition of the skin, hair, nails, joints, ligaments and tendons. It is crucial for:
- maintaining young looking and smooth skin,
- healthy and glossy hair,
- healthy and strong fingernails,
- while it plays an important role to keep joints mobile, ligaments and tendons strong as well as muscles healthy as the active ingredients of Collagen shot are the building blocks of mentioned tissues.
How long should I take Collagen Shot for?
Starting in our twenties, our body starts producing less collagen. Studies say that 1,5% less per year. This causes our skin to sag and wrinkle, our bones and joints to weaken and stiffen, and our hair to become thinner. You can supplement collagen with Collagen Shot dietary supplement or with a daily balanced diet.
How long does one packaging last?
One packaging of Collagen Shot contains 500 ml (17 oz.) which is sufficient for 20 days of daily use (25 ml / 0,85 oz. per shot).
When will I notice first effects?
When the effects of taking Collagen Shot appear depends on several factors, most depending on your age, lifestyle (stress, smoking, alcohol, prolonged sun exposure) and diet. The sooner you will start replacing lost collagen and its building blocks, the sooner the results will be seen and the easier it will be to maintain your current skin, hair and nail condition. However, the majority of our customers reports that effects of consuming Collagen shot appeared after their first 500 ml / 17 oz. bottle was consumed. You will most likely first notice changes by having much stronger fingernails and smoother skin.
I drank 2 bottles of Collagen Shot, yet do not notice any changes. Why?
As we have already mentioned above, when the effects of taking Collagen Shot will appear depends on several factors, most depending on your age, lifestyle (stress, smoking, alcohol, prolonged sun exposure) and diet. Even if you do not see them, there are definitely effects on your body (skin, fingernails, hair, joints, ligaments and tendons), even if they are not visible in the outside.
When is the best time of the day to use Collagen Shot?
It is best to drink your Collagen Shot first thing in the morning on a fasting basis.
Can I take Collagen Shot every second day?
For maximum effect, we recommend continuous use for at least 2 months (some may require more) and then every other day consumption to maintain the condition.
Why using Collagen Shot if I can intake all the ingredients through my diet?
After the age of 20, when body starts producing less collagen, it is very important to start consuming food rich with antioxidants, minerals, vitamins and proteins. Even though you can intake collagen through your diet, the absorption of collagen from food is only about 27%. When using liquid (important fact just as well) dietary supplement like Collagen Shot the absorption of hydrolyzed collagen is as high as 90%.
Bone soup and gelatine have the same effect as dietary supplements with collagen.
Due to large collagen molecules in bone broth, it is hard for them to absorb into our blood during digestion. Gelatine molecules used in the kitchen do not absorb into the body well as well. Even though you can intake collagen through your diet, the absorption of collagen from food is only about 27%. Hydrolyzed collagen in dietary supplements like Collagen shot contains small molecules that flow well into the bloodstream. When using liquid (important fact just as well) dietary supplement like Collagen Shot the absorption of hydrolyzed collagen is as high as 90%.
Collagen Shot does not taste good.
If you really have difficulty consuming Collagen Shot, you can dilute it with water, tea, juice or mix it into your morning smoothie.
Why is your liquid Collagen Shot better than dietary supplements in capsules or powder dietary supplements?
Liquid nutritional supplements have better absorption than nutritional supplements in powder or capsules. The amount of active ingredient consumed is therefore greater when using liquid Collagen Shot.
Are the vitamins, zinc, MSM and collagen in Collagen Shot durable?
All the ingredients in Collagen shot are durable until the end of the shelf life. Verification was made through analyses in two different laboratories.
It seems that Collagen Shot affects my digestion. Is it possible?
Collagen helps with stomach acid, ulcer and sensitive gastric mucosa problems. The amino acids glycine and proline help improve the overall intestine condition, as they improve the digestive tract walls. Glutamine amino acid helps reducing intestinal inflammatory conditions and prevents various intestinal diseases.
Your Collagen Shot is very expensive.
Our Collagen shot is one of the rarest ones on the market that in one daily-recommended dosage contains: 5000 mg of hydrolyzed fish collagen, 1500 mg of MSM*, 1 mg of hyaluronic acid, Vitamins C, E, B6, Biotin, Zinc and other active ingredients that affect the condition of the skin, hair, nails, joints, ligaments and tendons. Recommended daily dosage costs 2 EUR – less than one coffee per day. If you would have to buy all of the above-mentioned active ingredients separately, you would have to spend far much more money than for one Collagen shot a day.
*MSM is a so-called beauty mineral taking care of natural collagen in keratin production, important for maintaining young looking skin as well as for healthy hair and strong nails.
Your competition has much cheaper collagen dietary supplement.
We kindly advise you to carefully:
- read the ingredients on the declaration when you either compare our product with the one from the competition or
- before you purchase competitive product.
When choosing the right collagen for you as well as when comparing dietary supplements with collagen be careful about:
- the amount of the active ingredients you get with one shot as well as
- the days the package is used for (for instance: One packaging of Collagen Shot contains 500 ml (17 oz.) which is sufficient for 20 days of daily use (25 ml / 0,85 oz. per shot).
Can I consume Collagen Shot if I have thyroid problems?
Collagen Shot contains MSM (Methyl sulfonyl methane). MSM is an organosulfur compound, causing side effects to some individuals. Consult your doctor or pharmacist before use.
Can I use Collagen Shot during pregnancy or while breast-feeding?
Consumption of Collagen Shot dietary supplement has not been formally tested on pregnant or breast-feeding women, therefore you should consult your doctor, gynecologist or pediatrician before use.
Can teenagers with acnes consume Collagen Shot?
Teenagers can use Collagen Shot as well. We have received a lot of positive feedback regarding teenagers’ acne problem improvement.
Why does Collagen Shot contain preservatives?
Collagen Shot is a liquid dietary supplement and must therefore contain preservative to ensure microbiological safety. It contains preservatives that are safe for use in foods and are at very low concentrations.
Who is Collagen Shot suitable for?
Collagen Shot is suitable for women and men after the age of 20, since our body then produces about 1.5% less collagen every year. Although our body is able to synthesize collagen from the amino acids we consume, the natural production of collagen in our body decreases with age. If the body does not have enough building blocks (amino acids) for collagen synthesis, we notice signs of skin aging, injuries, joint pain and digestive problems.
What is MSM?
MSM is a form of organic sulfur that is easily absorbed and used by the body for the normal course of many processes in the body. Sulfur can be found in virtually every cell in our body, found in more than 150 different compounds in the body, it is an essential component of connective tissues, joint fluid, skin and nails. MSM is a nutrient found in the bodies of all vertebrates. It can also be found in very small quantities in many raw foods such as meat, unprocessed milk, green leafy vegetables, and is even found in beer and coffee.
How to obtain MSM?
MSM is obtained synthetically in a laboratory with a special chemical process labeled GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe, meaning that the process is completely safe and gives a pure form of the final product). MSM obtained from the nature or chemically derived MSM are no different in structure, safety and efficacy. Since MSM is present in very small quantities in nature or in food, MSM obtained in laboratories is used in food supplements. With synthetically derived MSM we can bring to our body a sufficient amount of this active substance that we would otherwise have to ingest through unrealistic amounts of food. Just for example: in order to inject 1.5 g of MSM into the body, one would have to consume e.g. 500 liters (132 gallons) of milk.
What is collagen?
Collagen is the most commonly represented protein in our body, accounting for about 30% of the total protein found in the body. It is part of the connective tissue and participates in the functions of all body structures. It is found in the muscles, livers, hair, nails, cartilage, ligaments, joints, arteries, brain, spleen, kidneys, lungs and also in the heart.
Why does Collagen Shot contain zinc?
From the protein building blocks of glycine in proline (amino acids present in collagen) with the help of vitamin C in zinc, solid tissue is created, firmly interwoven with the elastin fiber. Due to its function, mineral zinc contributes to maintain healthy and shiny skin, glossy hair and healthy, hard fingernails.
Why is Vitamin C added to Collagen Shot?
Very quickly after a meal rich with Vitamin C (about half an hour later), six times more collagen is being produced as usual. Vitamin C is essential for the growth of connective tissue from collagen. Without vitamin C and MSM, collagen production is almost impossible.
What is hyaluronic acid?
No other biological substance can bound as much water as hyaluronic acid. That makes it perfect moisturizer that leads to smoother and softer skin and smoothens wrinkles. Its effect is much greater if we use it in cosmetics.
Where does Collagen from Collagen Shot derive from?
Collagen in Collagen Shot is of fish origin. It is obtained by the enzymatic process from the food industry.
