collagen helps hold our body together

Collagen is a natural protein that is made up of amino acids – the natural building blocks of our skin. Collagen is found throughout the body – in skin, hair, teeth, muscle, tendon and bone and it helps hold us together.

proto-col uses only hydrolysed collagen which means it has essentially been “pre-digested”, so the digestive system takes less time and energy to break down the protein and therefore it gets absorbed into the bloodstream very quickly. As we get older our body tends to produce less collagen causing loss of skin elasticity and reduced joint mobility. By the age of 45 our collagen level has decreased by about 30 percent. proto-col uses bovine collagen as it is so similar to human collagen and many people in the beauty industry have embraced its use to reduce wrinkles and fine lines.

look after your skin with our Collagen Capsules

Taking a collagen capsule supplement can help maintain a youthful complexion and obtain optimum well-being.

Collagen has been known to increase joint mobility and reduce arthritis pain. It is also used to help combat cellulite and has only 4.8 calories per serving.  proto-col use bovine collagen as it is considered to be the closest match to human collagen.

Collagen Capsules benefits:
May boost the natural production of collagen within the body.
May help improve the elasticity of the skin.
May produce noticeable signs of the skin becoming firmer with a reduction of lines and wrinkles.
Readily absorbed by the body because it allows protein to be bio-available and water soluble.
May aid the repair and regeneration of ligaments, tendons, joints and bones as well as improving the connective tissue of the skin.
May help stabilise the body’s immune system and neutralise the production of abnormal molecular structures which are known to be a major cause of joint problems and stiffness. 
Provides the raw material for cartilage to rebuild.

Key Ingredients:
Pure Collagen Hydrolysate (Type I and III).

The minimum recommended dosage is 3 capsules per night. The capsules should be taken prior to going to bed as the first phase of sleep is when maximum repair and regeneration occurs, and for maximum results they should be taken on an empty stomach or at least 1 1/2 hours after eating a main meal. This dosage can safely be increased for chronic or acute conditions or as an additional boost in the repair of injuries (recommended 9 capsules a day).

Good collagen
As a sport person I believe this really helps Review by Dean (Posted on 06/02/2019)
I have been taking these capsules for three weeks now, and am already noticing how much thicker my hair has become, my nails are stronger and my complexion seems so much brighter. I was somewhat sceptical initially but have been proved wrong. I’m also hoping the capsules will work their magic on my lower back pain. Having tried various other supplements for hair, skin and nails with little or no results, I am thrilled to have found these capsules. I have ordered three more bottles!

I've been taking collagen 'skin plus' tablets for many years. people tell me I look 10 years younger than my 69 years. Even my beautician.
On a recent visit to hospital for a minor op., the nurse preparing me was truly astonished by my skins condition. Even calling other staff members to guess my age !.
She made me promise to take in the details . Which I did.

My husband and I have been taking these capsules for years and we are really happy with them. Review by Maureen (Posted on 09/11/2018)
Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes
Amazing - All you need to boost and connect the cartilage, tendons and bones inside.
So many patients don’t know about the benefits of hydrolysed collagen.

Helping those with mobility issues could increase a persons standard of living.
It’s not just about looking good, I think the NHS should use this product it would save on physio, surgery and is cost effective.

The best!
The best collagen capsules in the world! Beauty, health and well-being are yours! Review by Mark (Posted on 17/11/2017)
Fantastic product for health and beauty!
I bought these capsules on their first airing on Ideal World, and I've been using them now for longer than 10 years, I'm sure. I am 62 and I am frequently taken for being in my late forties, and I have thicker hair, good nails and best of all no wrinkles......simply expression lines!! I put all this down to Proto-Col. I have sometimes not repurchased, getting complacent I think, and I always see and feel a difference, so I come back for more. However, over the years I've had tendon problems in my right arm and then knee issues due to a fall, and they are greatly improved by taking these, 3 per night, but when I get flare ups, I double or even quadruple the dose, and it fixes the problem completely. I have now just moved on to the Sports Plus of these, as I find they are stronger and more effective for me. Once I have sorted out this latest flare up, which incidentally my Consultant wants to fix with surgery (NO, I REFUSE) I may return to a higher strength of these. The moral of the story is this: if you want to age gracefully and keep as pain free and active as possible, buy these and take them every night without fail! I am so glad I saw the presentation on Ideal World, and I recommend these to all my friends, who have similar results. Review by Christine M (Posted on 16/12/2016)
My nightly routine
Have been taking these now for 9 years & wouldn't be without them. Bought them to keep my collagen levels up, in order to keep me looking younger for longer. . Found as a bi product that they have 'really' helped my arthritis. Keep by my bed & take 3 just before retiring with a glass of water, as once read they work best then, as our cells renew themselves whilst we sleep. Take for great skin & to help arthritis Review by Karen (Posted on 23/04/2016)
At age 77 I can't believe how super these are for ridding my shoulder pain. Sprinkle on my breakfast cereal with no taste!
At 77 and suffered in past with painful shoulders I am so so pleased that, although still a bit stiff, they have greatly improved for movement and virtually NO pain. Please always have these available as tried the new ones taste awful so have to swallow them whole and I hate that. Review by Ju ju (Posted on 04/04/2016)
I am sure this product is superb, unfortunately unless I can take as a powder, the gelatine capsules cause me irritation, is this possible, perhaps stir into a little water at night. Please can anyone help as I would love to continue. Review by Ophelia (Posted on 06/10/2015)
These tablets have made such a difference to my life. 4 years ago I started taking these as I had extreme pain in both knees and after many cortizone injections I was on the verge of considering surgery. I was sceptical but decided these couldn't do any harm. I was completely amazed at the difference they made especially as I didn't believe they would work! I am 4 years on not having surgery and not taking any pain killers. I've recommended these to a number of friends and they have had the same results. I'd recommend anyone to give these a go. Review by A Convert (Posted on 20/07/2015)
No more clicky joints
I have taken Proto-col since they appeared on Ideal World. My hair is thicker and glossy, my nails are less brittle, and people say that I look younger than 55. My knee joints have always been a problem, when I was younger my heel of my shoe caught in the lining of my coat, and I fell off the bus landing on my knees. Giving me very swollen clicky joints. I had to have Physio therapy and learn how to build the muscle in the upper part of my leg to support my knee. For years I have had problems.
Proto-col, has helped to reduce this, and now only have slight grinding in my right knee.( I put this down to age). I feel more energised when taking these capsules, and certainly notice the difference when I haven't taken any.
I have recently started to exercise in a women's boot camp, to lose weight, and take more capsules to help relieve aching muscles. It does work.

Magic Capsules
I took these capsules a few years ago on the recommendation of a nutritionist, I found them excellent then as my hair and nails were in good condition. For some reason I did not take them for a year or two until recently when my arthritis worsened and knees getting were stiff. Three months on there is a difference in my arthritic joints as well as strong nails and thicker hair. I recommend them for arthritis. What have you got to lose?? Review by Linda (Posted on 23/03/2015)
beauty does come from within
Just purchased another parcel of the proto col collagen from a well known shopping channel,I've been using this range for a few month now and can see a change in my skin and hair,my husband noticed a change on the top of my legs(orange do I need to say more?) Next to the serums I take the capsules content in a shake just decreased the amount,nearly pushing 50 I recently had my age guessed much younger,no that must be result,what can I say try it you got nothing to loose,I will not go back using anything else Review by mum of four (Posted on 09/12/2014)
why not give them a go!
i order the collagen for my 79 year old mum,
She has taken these for many years, and would without any hesitation tell you that proto-col capsules have added to her well being over the years. With long, thick hair, and great skin, mum wouldnt be without them. She has just reduced her dose to one tablet a day, but with her great outlook on life, and her desire to be as healthy in body and mind as is possible, proto-col collagen offers a natural, easy way to add and enhance. Why not give them a go?
Review by mum (Posted on 24/02/2014)
Beauty comes from within
The saying “beauty comes from within” has a whole new meaning when it comes to Proto-col capsules. Within three months of starting to take the capsules I noticed a remarkable difference in my skin, nails and hair. My main area of concern for aging at the time was my hands, and now two/three years down the line I can quite honestly say my hands look younger now than they did back then even though I am now older. I have consistently been complimented on my skin and how healthy and glowing I look. My age has recently been guessed at 10/15 years younger than I am and I can honestly say that I believe it is the remarkable results of taking the Proto-col capsules. To anyone that is thinking of getting the capsules and cannot decide, look on the internet or go to your library to research and see how important protein, namely amino acids, are to the structure of your body, its bones, muscles and skin. Order them and see the results for yourself. They are my desert island product. Review by Jill Berladyn (Posted on 04/07/2013)

Questions & Answers

Q. What are the side effects of taking collagen?

A. Side effects of collagen supplements may also include risk of hypercalcemia. This may be the case if the tablets contain marine sources, such as shellfish or shark cartilage, which usually also contain high amounts of calcium. Symptoms of calcium overdose include chronic fatiguenausea, and abnormal heart rhythms.

This is not the case with proto-col collagen for our collagen (verisol b – beauty & fortigel – Sport) is derived from a bovine source.  The reason why we have chosen this source of collagen is because the results achieved have proven scientific evidence. 

Q. What are the benefits of taking collagen supplements?

A. Top benefits of taking a collagen supplement

May ease joint pain. As your cartilage weakens and deteriorates with age, you may start to feel stiff, achy joints.

Collagen Verisol B is clinically proven to reverse skin aging.

Improve skin elasticity and reduce the depth of wrinkles.

Helps build muscle and burn fat.  Collagen is a structural protein and is Anabolic in the body, this helps to produce lean muscle mass.

May reduce cellulite. – this is because it works to create lean muscle mass when used as part of a strength training program.

May improve digestive health – this is because it’s a highly absorbable protein. We use the term bioavailable – to mean the body can utilise the protein very easily.

Collagen benefits have also been linked with

Brain and Alzheimer's Protection.

Prevent and Help Treat Heart Disease.

Heal Leaky Gut Syndrome.

Ease Joint Pain.

Broken Nails.

Q.  Is it safe to take collagen supplements?

 A. Research confirms that supplementing with collagen is a safe and effective way to improve the health of skin and joints.  The World health organisation have stated that taking a larger dose of collagen hydrolysate is safe to take.

Q. Do collagen pills really work?

The simple answer is yes.  The best way to help the body produce collagen, needed to repair cartilage, joints and other connective tissues, and to have metabolically active lean tissue, is to take a collagen supplement.  Verisol B is now (2015) clinically proven to stimulate collagen type I (procollagen I / ) production by some 65%.  Eating a healthy diet, with adequate protein can help but it doesn’t compare to the intake of a high-grade collagen supplement. Taking vitamin C also helps the body produce collagen in connective tissue.

Q. Can collagen help you lose weight?

A.  Collagen can help you lose weight, but it won't do all of the work for you. Collagen is great for providing you just the right tools to act alongside your diet and exercise program.  Adding collagen into your diet can help to decrease your food intake, beat cravings, and prevent pain which can result from physical activity.  In order to achieve weight loss, it must be used in conjunction with an exercise program to create lean muscle mass. This is not bulky or large muscles, but more lean dense muscles.
