FAQS

Frequently Asked Questions about ProPlenish Marine Collagen and related products.

What age should I start taking ProPlenish Marine Collagen?

Read about how ProPlenish can assist specific to your age here

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.

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.

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.

Can men use ProPlenish marine collagen?

We are all made up of collagen and experience the same effects from the natural decline in collagen levels through the ageing process – wrinkled skin, weak nails, brittle hair and muscle loss.

We have many men who take ProPlenish and report great benefits from the product. Male customers who take ProPlenish report that their skin is more hydrated and firmer, nails are stronger, less hair loss and a greater ability to maintain lean muscle tone.

More information and scientific research is available on the research page.

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?

For best results we recommend for the first 4-6 weeks to take 2-3 sachets/scoops per day to increase your collagen levels. Following that you can choose to reduce your serves to 1-2 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.

Taking 2-3 sachets/scoops a day can accelerate the results and we have many customers reporting this.

What do the products taste like?

ProPlenish Marine Collagen Original is a tasteless and odourless supplement that blends clear in hot and cold drinks and food*. Please see our blog page for recipe ideas and ways to easily include ProPlenish into your daily diet.

For those wanting a touch of flavour we recommend ProPlensih Citrus flavoured Marine Collagen.

As our new advanced formula Marine Collagen + contains 9 other vitamins, minerals and botanicals in addition to our 100% pure marine collagen there is a slight taste. This is predominately due to the inclusion of the Matcha Green Tea. Unlike our Original Marine Collagen product that dissolves tasteless in water we recommend including Marine Collagen + in a daily smoothie, Acai bowl or yoghurt. 

* The majority of people experience no taste however those with more sensitive taste buds have reported a slight marine flavour when taken in water only.

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

Eczema, Psoriasis, Rosacea 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.

Stretch marks
Stretch marks are a result of a lack of collagen in the dermis combined with stretching of the skin. The less collagen there is in your skin, the more likely you are to develop stretch marks. Including ProPlenish marine collagen in your daily diet may help to prevent and reduce the appearance of stretch marks and improve the overall quality of your skin.

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 Collagen 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.

If you are concerned about taking ProPlenish Marine Collagen in conjunction with prescription medications it is advised that you speak with your Doctor.
