Gold Collagen Supplements

Gold Collagen have a range of liquid beauty supplements that help you achieve firmer, plumper, healthier looking skin from within. We always get people wanting to know more about this brand so we thought that we would pull together some of the most frequently asked questions and help you discover all about these wonder supplements!

Question: How long has the product been on the market?
Answer:

Pure Gold Collagen was first launched in 2011 and immediately grew a huge number of devotees. Since then, the Gold Collagen range has expanded and more and more people are loving its results.

Question: Who should take Gold Collagen Supplements?
Answer:

Anyone who wants to boost their skin’s own natural collagen production for younger, healthier looking skin, hair and nails or to either prevent or counteract signs of natural ageing from the inside.

Question: What Gold Collagen products are there and what is the difference between the ranges?
Answer:

Currently there are three supplement ranges  by Gold Collagen: “Pure” , “Active”  and “Forte”.

“Pure” is a beauty supplement for healthy skin, hair and nails to combat the early signs of aging. “Active” is for individuals  leading an active lifestyle, or those needing support for their joints. “Forte” is designed specially for women over 40 for Anti-aging.

Question: Where does the collagen come from?
Answer:

Collagen can be obtained from various animal sources e.g. chicken, bovine, porcine, fish or marine animal. Gold Collagen only uses collagen extracted from fish skin and no other animal sources are used. The fish used are Tilapia fish and they are all  guaranteed by health certificates and are meant to be eaten. Plus, they only come from fish farms registered by the European Union for the import of edible fish.

Question: Is Gold Collagen safe?
Answer:

All of the Gold Collagen products undergo laboratory tests for safety and quality, including being tested by an independent laboratory, so you can trust that they are totally safe for you to take. If you ever worry at all, just check in with your Doctor before you take them.

Question: What is collagen?
Answer:

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body needed for the structure and density of the skin.  Approximately 80% of young and healthy skin is made up of collagen. However, the fibroblast cells responsible for producing collagen in the skin slows down and/or their numbers decreases with natural ageing.

Question: What is the difference between the collagen in the skin and the collagen in the product?
Answer:

The collagen naturally present in our skin, joints, tendons and ligaments has a high molecular weight (300kDa). If ingested, it is not digested or absorbed. The collagen in Gold Collagen is hydrolysed sp it has a lower molecular weight (~5kDa) which is easily digested in the stomach and absorbed in the small intestine.

Question: What happens after you take Gold Collagen?
Answer:

The enzymes in our stomachs break the hydrolysed collagen down into smaller peptides and free amino acids which are then easily absorbed in the small intestine. These then pass through the small intestine walls to reach the blood stream supplying the dermis. Here, they activate the fibroblast cells to make new collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin to hydrate the skin, and to improve its firmness and elasticity.

Question: Doesn’t the stomach acid destroy the collagen?
Answer:

No. The collagen peptides are specifically formulated to retain their structural integrity so they cannot be broken down by the stomach acid.

Question: What is the recommended daily dose and best time of day to take the product?
Answer:

It is recommend that you drink one 50ml bottle of Gold Collagen on an empty stomach for best absorption.  If it causes any indigestion or discomfort, then try taking it after food. It is an amazing energy boost too, because it contains 100% RDA of vitamin B6.

Question: Can Gold Collagen be taken in combination with other food supplements?
Answer:

Yes, however, bear in mind that Gold Collagen supplements already contain a large amount of your Recommended Daily Allowance of key vitamins and minerals so you may not need any further supplements if you are eating a rounded diet. It would be best to check to ensure you are receiving the optimal amount for your daily nutritional needs.

Question: When will I see visible results?
Answer:

Results will show pretty quickly. The clinical trials on Pure Gold Collagen showed skin became more hydrated in 3 weeks of taking the product everyday, followed by a reduction in fine lines and deeper wrinkles in 6 weeks, and an increase in skin elasticity in 9 weeks.

Question: How long do I need to take Gold Collagen supplements for and what happens if I stop taking them?
Answer:

To get the full benefits, Gold Collagen supplements work best taken every day for at least a month. Whilst you won’t immediately notice a decrease in the appearance of your skin, the research shows that the level of collagen slowly reverts back to its original level so longterm, your skin will go back to how it was.

Question: What does the supplement taste like?
Answer:

The flavour of the Gold Collagen supplements is fruity, with peach and passion fruit as well as a hint of a spicy note from the black pepper extract.

Question: What does the black pepper extract do?
Answer:

The black pepper extract, Bioperin, is clinically proven to increase bioavailability. In other words, it helps the nutrients in the supplements be absorbed up to 60% more effectively.

Question: Can Gold Collagen supplements be taken with medication?
Answer:

We would always recommend that you speak to your doctor if you have any concerns or are already taking medication, but it is very unlikely that Gold Collagen would cause any problems.

Question: How does Gold Collagen differ from your average anti-ageing cream?
Answer:

Creams work on the outer layer of the skin whilst Gold Collagen works from within to stimulate the cells responsible for the body’s own natural production of collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin.

Question: Why liquid rather than tablets?
Answer:

Aside from being much easier to swallow, a liquid is more readily absorbed as soon as it enters the stomach. The daily dosage of Gold Collagen contains 5,000 mg of hydrolysed collagen which can be up to 20 times more than a typical collagen tablet. Tablets and capsules may cost less, but in reality, liquid represents far better value due to more hydrolysed collagen being absorbed and distributed in the body.

Question: Do Gold Collagen products contain any gold?
Answer:

Unfortunately not, but that doesn’t stop it being a golden beauty product in our eyes!
