Frequently Asked Questions
Calorad® works with virtually all other supplements. Although Calorad® is pure and simply a protein supplement, we always recommend when in doubt, take it to a professional health practitioner.
Pregnant and lactating women and prepubescent children.
There is no need. It is a food supplement. No synthetics, no herbs, no drugs, no stimulants; only protein, which is a food.
That’s hard to tell. Many people lose inches before they ever lose a pound, their clothes fit different or perhaps they drop a dress/pant size without noticing any changes on the scale. Individual results may vary but approximately 50% see results in the first month, and 86% will see results by the end of 90 days.
You can take it forever; it’s essentially a food, safe and effective. You may even choose to slow consumption and take it only on weekdays and stop on weekends, once the desired results have been achieved.
The Calorad®Caps were designed for those who have a problem taking the liquid. If you do not have any trouble taking liquid, we recommend you take the Calorad®Classic Formula. If you do not prefer to do the liquid formulation, then we recommend that you take the Calorad®Caps.
Suggested Use for Calorad®Caps: Take 3 capsules on an empty stomach with an eight-ounce glass of water just before going to sleep. For optimum results: refrain from food and beverages (other than water) for 3 hours prior to consuming Calorad Caps.
The difference between the Calorad®Advanced and the Calorad®Classic PM lies within the chains of amino acids. The Classic PM was designed to be taken at night on an empty stomach directly before sleep. The Advanced was designed to take during the day before meals or at night as well. If you are choosing to take it at night as well as during the day, then you should choose the Advanced. If you are looking strictly for the benefits of taking it before bed, then the PM Classic is the best choice. Most people who are looking for the weightloss benefits alone go with the PM Classic. The Advanced is more for added energy during the day.
The difference lies in the source of the collagen (i.e. beef or fish). The marine formula was created for the vegetarian and kosher market. The main difference in the alternate collagen sources is the actual composition of the amino acid chain (certain amino acids will be in higher or lower proportions).
Calorad Classic: Take a measured half ounce (one tablespoon) each night, before bedtime with water on an empty stomach. (Use a measuring spoon or cup, or simply fill two Calorad bottle caps full)
Calorad Caps: Take 3 capsules on an empty stomach with an eight-ounce glass of water just before going to sleep. For optimum results: refrain from food and beverages (other than water) for 3 hours prior to consuming Calorad® Caps.
Calorad Advanced: Each day 15 minutes before each meal (3x a day) on an empty stomach, take a measured teaspoon (5ml) of Calorad Advanced with water. Or you can take a measured half ounce (one tablespoon) each night, before bedtime with water on an empty stomach.
There are no specific dietary restrictions/changes with Calorad®; however, eating sensibly and being active will definitely increase your likelihood of success, and improving the status of your overall health. Drinking the recommended eight glasses of water daily is also important.
Calorad® contains absolutely no stimulants, herbal or otherwise.
Collagen is the protein of connective and other tissues. Proteins are made of amino acids like glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline. Due to stress, trauma, aging and environmental issues, our systems are affected by collagen depletion. This causes muscles to sag, bones to lose density, joints, and ligaments to weaken with less elasticity; skin becomes thinner and your fat/muscle ratio changes.
Calorad® provides the fuel that allows your body to achieve deep sleep. It helps to stabilize and balance levels of blood sugar released during the night, so you sleep better and don’t wake up ravenous in the morning. In the first 45–90 minutes of sleep, your body goes into delta sleep mode. This is the deepest form of sleep when your body naturally repairs itself, builds muscle and breaks down fat. During this process, your body searches for a source of energy and fuel to fulfill this function. Calorad® acts as the fuel for this natural process.
These proteins are harder for the body to break down to extract amino acids. Some amino acids will be compromised and even lost in digestion. Calorad® does not contain a whole protein molecule. It is in a sense already broken down for you (pre-digested and bio available) and, therefore, very easily assimilated by the body.
