The collagen in natural Calorad® supports lean muscle, which in turn facilitates “fat” loss.* Collagen is a protein that makes up about 30-40 percent of your body (Reference: Hall, D. A. (ed) (1964) International Review of Connective Tissue Research, Vol. 2, F. Verzár, Aging of the Collagen Fiber, Academic Press, New York, p. 244 top paragraph.) . Collagen is a natural component in our tendons, joints, ligaments, muscles, hair, etc. As we age, our bodies no longer produce the same level of collagen or amino acids. Major results of collagen loss are wrinkles, breakdown of lean muscle and connective tissue, increase in fat tissue.

What are the benefits of collagen?
The benefits of collagen: Calorad’s natural formula offers a chain of amino acids such as Glysine, Lysine, Arginine, Glutamine, Hydroxylysine and Hydroxyproline, whose effects on the immune system, muscles and tendons are recognized to rebuild your levels of collagen. Its first effects will be on cardiovascular tissues and joints. Our collagen supplement will give elasticity to these tissues. It helps to have a positive impact on the efficiency of the body’s energy metabolism, maintaining health, maintaining a great skin texture and the functioning of large blood vessels and intestine.
Collagen deficiency can create major damages to joints, blood vessels and skin. That is why it is very important to support your body collagen needs with the best collagen supplement… Calorad®.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body. Your connective tissues, bones, skin and cartilages are built with this fibrous protein. Amino acids in collagen include a large portion of glycine, proline and hydroxyproline; this makes collagen different from other proteins. The unique formula of Calorad® works with your body and will rebuilt your collagen base during your sleep; this is why it is considered to be a natural energy supplement. Our collagen is highly bio available and mixed with our special formula; your metabolism will quickly absorb it.
Collagen is a protein that makes up about 30-40 percent of your body. Collagen is a natural component in our tendons, joints, ligaments, muscles, hair, etc. As we age, our bodies no longer produce the same level of collagen or amino acids. Major results of collagen loss are: wrinkles on the outside, breakdown of lean muscle and connective tissue on the inside. Collagen degeneration continues until you supply your body with proper supplementation.
Collagen is extremely rich in the amino acids Proline and Glycine. Calorad® delivers a collagen weight loss program which takes advantage of the peak periods for the absorption of amino acids. The result is that you have a collagen weight loss program at work for you right round the clock.
Losing weight is by far the reason most people decide to try a weight loss program but there are more benefits to the whole physical being than just looking better as a result of losing weight. Most weight loss programs ignore the simple truth that collagen is the glue that binds us together and that collagen is lost as we age. The result of collagen loss is wrinkles on the outside and breakdown of lean muscle and connective tissue on the inside. Calorad® offers a collagen weight loss program which seeks to restore the collagen that you lose as you age.
P. 244 top paragraph: “Connective tissue takes part in the structure of most organs. Its main protein is collagen, which may thus be 30-40% of all the proteins of the body. Collagen is a macromolecule deposited in the form of fibers. It occurs as almost chemically pure collagen in the tendons, as a convolute of fibers in a ground substance in the corium [dermis] of the skin, as the substance of bones on which calcium is deposited, or as the interstitial fibrous tissue between muscle fibers, in fascia and membranes of articulations, etc.” Reference Article

How much weight will I lose?
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 approximately 80-85% will see results by the end of 90 days.
Can I take Calorad® forever?
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. Many customers express their love and excitement of how the collagen, in Calorad®, helps them with their chronic pain; therefore, these customers choose to stay on the collagen in the Calorad® for their pain management.
What is the difference between the Liquid and the Capsules?
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 or Advanced Formulas. If you do not prefer to do the liquid formulation, then we recommend that you take the Calorad® Caps. Many customers like to take the capsule form for travel for convenience.
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.
What is the difference between the Calorad® Classic and the Calorad® Advanced?
The difference between the Calorad® Advanced and the Calorad® Classic lies within the chains of amino acids. The Classic formula 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 Classic is the best choice. Most people who are looking for the weight/inch loss benefits alone go with the Classic formula.*
The Advanced is more for added energy during the day. Michele Grise, inventor, and Dr Lundell created the Advanced formula to help target belly or visceral better. They rearranged the chains of amino acids to target the fat within the belly area called visceral fat. The other body fat is called subcutaneous fat. Visceral fat is body fat that is stored within the abdominal cavity and is therefore stored around a number of important internal organs such as the liver, pancreas and intestines. This visceral fat can become dangerous to one’s health due to it can affect one’s organs.* Researchers have long-known that visceral fat — the kind that wraps around the internal organs — is more dangerous than subcutaneous fat that lies just under the skin around the belly, thighs and rear. But how visceral fat contributes to insulin resistance and inflammation has remained unknown.* (Date: April 25, 2016. Source: University of Illinois at Chicago)

What is the difference between the bovine and the marine formula?
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.
Can I take Calorad® with other supplements or if I’m on medication?
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.
Who shouldn’t take Calorad®?
Pregnant and lactating women and prepubescent children.
Do I have to make other lifestyle changes?
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.
Are there any stimulants such as ephedra, ma huang or caffeine in Calorad®?
Calorad® contains absolutely no stimulants, herbal or otherwise.
How does collagen depletion affect the body?
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.
How can Calorad® provide a better night’s sleep?
Calorad® ingredients provide the fuel that help allow 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.
Why don’t I just eat steak for protein and amino acids?
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.
What is the history of Calorad® and the Chubby Chickens?
32+ years ago, Michel Grise, a brilliant Canadian formulator who was working for Abbott laboratories of Canada at the time, was asked to formulate a product that would eliminate the “fatty syndrome” in poultry. (Fat chickens stop laying eggs, and their meat has lower market value.) Michel had seen earlier research on collagen and weight loss, and he developed a collagen-based formula that was completely safe as a feed additive, fed the product to the chickens, and within days, the fat was gone and the chickens and the chicken farmers were happy!!*
That’s great for chickens, but how about us?
That’s where the really great news begins. Due to the dramatic success of the product, Michel decided to reformulate the product for humans, naming it, “Calorad®”. Michel tested Calorad® on himself and had an internal medicine physician monitor his progress and the safety of the product. The doctor was amazed at Michel’s results. Michel lost 30 pounds of fat without losing any lean muscle. In fact, to his excitement, he gained lean muscle in his chest. Michel reported to us: “By simply taking a tablespoon of Calorad® with a glass of water on an empty stomach each night just prior to going to sleep, I lost fat, weight and gained more muscle tone. Calorad® worked!!! That was over 20 years ago!! Since then literally hundreds of thousands of people have achieved dramatic fitness and wellness results by using Calorad®.*
Sound too good to be true?
That’s what we said before we reviewed the information and received the results for ourselves!! Our results have been phenomenal, and too good not to share with you! We ship Calorad® to your door in 2-4 business days at the lowest price available in North America and Canada.*
Will the weight that I lose come back after going of the product?
Calorad® is designed to help produce gradual, safe weight loss, and to replace fat with healthy lean muscle. Once lean muscle is increased, your metabolic rate is increased. The fat will stay off if you control your eating habits. After all, if you don’t change the habits that got you there in the first place, the weight may eventually come back. Calorad helps your body crave healthy foods and helps rid the body of junk food cravings. After a few weeks of using the Calorad and eating healthy and ridding the body of junk food cravings…your body will have formed the habit of craving healthy food and lost its desire for junk food.*
