What You Should Know
Collagenate is a product manufactured by Vim & Vigor, a company that was started by Karla and Rick Jarrett with the intention of providing “high quality, cutting edge, safe and effective nutritional supplements that have been researched and developed in order to improve the quality of your life.” Collagenate claims to help you lose fat and inches safely without drugs or stimulants of any kind. This product is just one of a number of products offered by this company to help buyers lose weight while promoting a healthier lifestyle.
Collagenate supposedly works by improving fat metabolism, which Vim & Vigor state will work in combination with a healthy lifestyle to help users lose fat and inches without giving up muscle mass. We do like the fact that this company encourages a healthy lifestyle in conjunction with the product; however, we would prefer to see the website get more specific as to what that healthy lifestyle necessary to maximize Collagenate’s benefits should look like. This product also claims to improve joint health and strengthen hair, nails, skin and muscles.
List of Ingredients
The website lists the Collagenate ingredients as follows: Organically Grown Aloe Vera, Purified water, Collagen, Natural Fruit Flavors, Stevia Extract, Citric Acid, Potassium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate. Apparently it is the collagen combined with the cold-processed Aloe Vera that creates the formula known as Collagenate.
There is some question about whether collagen truly is an effective weight loss substance, especially in light of the fact that many diet supplements touting this ingredient also recommend that you don’t eat anything for a number of hours before and after taking the product. One must wonder if the collagen is responsible for lost pounds or if it is the calorie deprivation. Aloe Vera is a natural laxative, which may also contribute to weight loss through a sort of natural colon cleanse. While this substance in itself may not be harmful, using it as a substitute for food might be. We urge consumers to proceed with caution when using any liquid that is supposed to be taken in place of or without food.
The Collagenate website offers a 40-day money back return policy and provides plenty of customer testimonials. They do advise you to try the product for at least three months before making a determination of its effectiveness, since it works a bit differently than other diet products on the market. This product is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, or for children.
- The product contains collagen, which can be beneficial for the body in many ways.
- The company does offer a money back guarantee and customer testimonials.
- The use of collagen to promote weight loss is not proven and is still pretty controversial.
- There is no appetite suppressant ingredient listed.
- The combination of diet and exercise with this supplement is suggested, but no specifications are included which leaves a pretty wide margin of error.
Collagenate is an intriguing diet supplement, with an ingredient that is not typical for these products. While the jury is still out on whether collagen is an effective weight loss ingredient, other benefits associated with this substance have been proven. However, using collagen as an oral weight loss aid is still pretty questionable. Check with your doctor to see if Collagenate might be the right product for you.
