frequently asked questions

 

How does ProPlenish Marine Collagen help skin, hair and nails?

ProPlenish Marine Collagen is scientifically proven to;
– Replenish the body’s lost collagen
– Activate natural collagen production by stimulating fibroblasts (main connective tissue cells in the body responsible for collagen production)
– Help prevent further collagen breakdown by combatting collagenase, the enzymes responsible for the break down of collagen in the body

Including collagen in your daily diet helps;

Skin

Including collagen in your daily diet can help rejuvenate, support and strengthen skin. It can also aid in skin elasticity, smooth fine lines, tighten and even out skin tone. Collagen also helps to improve skin hydration and resilience, increasing the skins ability to retain moisture for overall smoothness and plumping of the skin.

Hair

Including collagen in your daily diet can help to strengthen hair at the root by restoring collagen in the hair follicle to aid hair growth, thickness, texture and body.

Nails

Including collagen in your daily diet can help improve the condition of brittle nails and strengthen splitting, weak, flaking nails.

How does ProPlenish Marine Collagen help muscles, tendons and bones?

Collagen is an essential protein used by the body in the creation and function of muscles, bones, joints and skin. Collagen can assist with lean muscle gain and tone by its promotion of natural creatine, essential for new muscle growth following workouts. 

Include ProPlenish Marine Collagen in smoothies and shakes post workout as a healthier and more pure alternative to sugared protein bars and bodybuilding shakes. ProPlenish is 100% natural and free of fat, carbs, sugar, dairy, lactose, soy, wheat and gluten.

What age should I start taking ProPlenish Marine Collagen?

Many factors contribute to the age in which you might start to see the signs of ageing. These include genes (Intrinsic) and environmental factors (Extrinsic) such as stress, diet, smoking, sun exposure, alcohol consumption and exercise.

Depending upon the individual, one may start to see the signs of ageing appear as early as 20 years of age when collagen production begins to decline at a rate of 1-1.5% per year.

Including ProPlenish Marine Collagen in your daily diet can help to slow down the signs of ageing by replenishing lost collagen, activating natural collagen production (stimulates fibroblasts) and assist to stem further collagen breakdown in the body.

Is ProPlenish Marine Collagen designed for everyday use?

Yes, like any supplement ProPlenish Marine Collagen is recommended and designed to be taken daily for best results. Coming in powder form means ProPlenish is easy and convenient to include in your daily diet.

ProPlenish Marine Collagen taken daily works from within to replenish the collagen lost in the deep layers of the skin to hydrate and plump the skin. The strength and condition of nails also improves and hair becomes healthier through taking collagen daily.

How long before I see results?

The time frame in which results can be seen can sometimes vary due to the level of ageing and condition of a persons skin, hair and nails. Scientific research on daily collagen intake and general feedback from our customers is that changes can be seen and felt from 4-6 weeks onwards.

Like any supplement ProPlenish Marine Collagen needs to be taken daily for best results. 2-3 serves a day can accelerate the results and we have many customers reporting this.

What happens if I stop taking ProPlenish Marine Collagen

Like any supplement, when you stop taking ProPlenish Marine Collagen your skin, hair and nails will eventually revert to their previous state and you will loose the benefits you have achieved.

The time frame in which this happens can differ from person to person due to various environmental, genetic and lifestyle factors. Current research has indicated that results remained for 4 weeks (and then declined) when daily consumption of ProPlenish Marine Collagen ceased (after taking it daily for 8 weeks).

How many sachets/scoops should I take per day?

ProPlenish Marine Collagen replaces and rejuvenates the collagen that your body is no longer naturally producing in the skin, hair and nails to combat the signs of ageing.

We recommend for the first 4-6 weeks to take 2 sachets/scoops per day to increase your collagen levels. Following that you can look to go down 1 sachet/scoop per day if you wish. You can also choose to take 1 sachet/scoop per day from the onset however results may take longer to be seen. Please click here to see further details on dosage.

As long as you’re including ProPlenish Marine Collagen in your daily routine, your skin will begin to feel more hydrated and plump and your nails and hair will increase thickness and strength. Taking 2-3 sachets/scoops a day can accelerate the results and we have many customers reporting this.

Will ProPlenish Marine Collagen help with skin conditions and adult acne?

Skin conditions such as Eczema, Psoriasis, Rosacea and Adult Acne all in some way deplete the skin of key nutrients and interfere with collagen formation. ProPlenish Marine Collagen works from within to replenish the collagen lost in the deep layers of the skin at the dermis. The increase in collagen in your body helps to repair and re-build the damaged tissue and restore the skin’s firmness and elasticity. Research into taking collagen daily for two months has shown to result in a 91% increase in a persons skin hydration and resilience. This has in some cases seen improvements to eczema, psoriasis, rosacea and adult acne. Increased collagen in the skin can also help to support healing of the skin underneath acne scars and can in some cases improve acne scarring and marks.

Can I take Proplenish with other vitamins and medication?

ProPlenish Marine Collagen is 100% natural and will not effect or conflict with any other vitamins you are taking. ProPlenish Marine Colagen is used to assist skin, hair, nails, muscles, tendons and bones where vitamins such as Fish oil/ Krill oil are rich in Omega 3 fatty acids beneficial for heart, joint and brain health.
