We’ve received lots of questions about Collagen Shots and we’ve asked the lovely people at Rejuvenated to give us some answers.
Rejuvenated Collagen Shots are 100% natural food supplement and comply with European foods safety standards EFSA. However, if you are allergic to fish and shellfish we advise you not to take this supplement since it contains marine collagen.
Each batch is quality tested to ensure they reach the highest standards. The manufacturing plant is ISO9001 certified to meet food manufacturing certification.
The Marine is from ethically sourced cold water fish in Europe. The Fish includes: Pangasus, lantadae (perch), cyprinidae (carp), Alosa (shad), Pomadysyidae (Grunt) Tilapia, Ictaluride and catfish
(Don’t worry you can’t taste fish at all – take my word for this…I hate the taste of fish!!!).
The taste is very delicate and of wild berries. Drink mixed with water or mix it in with your smoothies!
The skin is the largest organ in the body, the most visible organ exposed to the greatest combined negative effects of intrinsic ageing, including reduced collagen synthesis, environmental factors such as sunlight and lifestyle choices, like smoking.
As we age, the appearance and functionality of the skin changes, most noticeably with wrinkles, lines, dryness and sagging skin. Collagen is crucial for maintaining the structure of the skin and therefore, youthful radiance and firmness.
Collagen is a protein that is highly abundant in the body, we produce it naturally and it’s an integral part of many structures in the body including the skin, connective tissue (including muscles, bones and ligaments), nails and hair.
Collagen contributes to smooth, firm and strong skin structure, helping skin to look firm and feel bouncy.
Our bodies do naturally produce collagen, however as we age, production by the body is reduced and over time, the skin becomes dry, wrinkled and saggy.
Rejuvenated Collagen Shots are specifically designed to provide additional collagen that promotes the body to increase its natural production.
The collagen peptides stimulate fibroblasts in the skin, which increase collagen production and restore the structural integrity of the fibroblasts, promoting firmer, stronger skin.
Collagen ingested in your normal diet typically has a large molecular size which is very hard for the body to break drown and as such, very little is actually absorbed into the bloodstream for the body to use effectively. Taking this into consideration, the hydrolysed collagen in Rejuvenated Collagen Shots has a much lower molecular weight that’s easily digested and absorbed into the body and collagen is delivered to the skin, where it can help to promote healthier, younger looking skin.
In contrast, when consumed in a drink, the collagen molecules are digested in the stomach and are then absorbed into the bloodstream from where they can be efficiently delivered to the skin.
In comparison to rival brands, there is a very high amount of hydrolysed collagen in Rejuvenated Collagen Shots (10,000mg per serving) that makes them stand out from the rest.
In addition, the unique recipe has been clinically formulated to combine peptide-rich amino acids, hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and a range of vitamins and minerals that are proven to improve the tone and texture of the skin.
What’s more, Rejuvenated Collagen Shots were voted the “Hottest Beauty Product 2014”, by The Times newspaper and are proud to be a “Beauty Shortlist Awards Winner 2015” for their category.

From around the age of 25, our bodies gradually start losing the ability to make collagen. By the age of 45, we will have lost around 30% of collagen in our bodies and we continue to lose more each year as we age.
By drinking a daily Collagen Shot, you are helping to supplement and replace the collagen that the body is struggling to produce.
You can help to maintain your young, youthful skin by starting to supplement your natural collagen levels from a young age.

Although not scientifically proven, some weight loss products and pills include collagen as an ingredient. In fact, the collagen that is used in this way for weight loss is the same way that it can be used for cooking. This is because collagen is a natural gelatin. However, weight loss can increase as a result of using these collagen supplements but only in conjunction with a healthy diet, regular exercise, and proper sleep patterns.
For people who suffer from osteoarthritis or osteoporosis, collagen supplements combined with calcium are worthy of considering as a choice for treatment. In fact, osteoporosis is an affliction that strikes many women and some men all across the nation. Regardless of the patients’ gender, collagen supplements are prescribed to patients, in combination with other drugs. The goal is to control the weakening of bones. As a result, calcium and collagen are often used in combination to help bind calcium in order to strengthen bones and provide improved flexibility.
When collagen is lowered in the cardiovascular system, it can lead to malfunctions of the heart. This decrease of collagen in the body has also been linked to pathological diseases. However, scientists are still studying the possibilities of using collagen supplements to boost the heart. Nonetheless, without the right treatments and knowledge of alternative options, such as collagen supplements, malfunctions of the heart can be fatal if not addressed in time.
Although collagen is not one of the first supplements thought of in relation to the teeth and gums, it is helpful in binding our teeth and keeping them firm to the gums. On the other hand, lowered collagen in the body can cause an individual to loose teeth.
Supplements containing collagen can be used to strengthen brittle, weak nails. Very simply, the treatment can be taken orally or in the form of a nail treatment. However, the time it takes to restore the nails to full strength and the preferred length will vary depending on each individual.
Age has the unfortunate effect on our skin of causing it to sag and wrinkle. In fact, the layer of fat that holds our skin tight to our bones begins to diminish as the years pass. This is due to the effect of everyday UV rays breaking down the collagen and other connective elements in the skin. However, collagen supplements replenish what is lost, allowing the layer of fat to remain and the skin to hold strong.
A collagen supplement helps the hair grow long and strong, and it increases the body’s natural hair-building proteins. Collagen initiates hair growth, and depending on the level of loss, regrowth as well. When used on a regular basis, healthy hair grows thick and strong in response to the collagen supplements.
Collagen supplements and topical solutions are being researched for burns and dermal wounds. Collagen molecules come together and bind in order for new skin to develop. As a natural dressing for wounds, collagen absorbs wound excretions. Thus, it will also help the wound stay moist as it heals without allowing bacterial infections to develop.
Each Rejuvenated Collagen Shot contains 10,000mg (10g) of collagen and we recommend that you take just one shot per day to achieve the best results.
It is not recommended to exceed the recommended 10g of collagen in each serving of Rejuvenated Collagen Shots, as this may cause mild gastrointestinal upset.
We recommend that you take Rejuvenated Collagen Shots half an hour before going to sleep at night, as this is when the cells in the body are renewing and repairing. Alternatively, drink it on an empty stomach either first thing in the morning, or half an hour before a meal. However, if you feel that you would like to drink yours in the morning then this will still have a wonderful results.
Put one scoop in a glass and fill with 200 – 250ml of water (or preferred beverage), whisk with a fork, allow a minute for the collagen to dissolve – whisk again and drink.
As with many health supplements, these are 100% natural, so the blending agents and emulsifiers that can help other products dissolve quickly are not present. It is recommended that the product is given a good whisk with a fork to allow the collagen to dissolve fully, this may require you to wait for one minute before whisking again.
If you have a shaker, or a small blender, this can also assist with mixing and dissolving.
As everybody is different, the time it takes to see visible results and feel any difference from Rejuvenated Collagen Shots will vary. With this in mind, the findings below fit with results from Rejuvenated’s clinical studies regarding the product.
After one week: most people start to notice an improvement in skin feel (softness and reduced dryness).
After two to three weeks: reports suggest that skin starts to appear smoother and fuller with an increased glow.
After three to four weeks: wrinkles and fine lines visibly start to reduce.
After five to six weeks: skin feels more hydrated, plumper and more elastic.
Some may see these results quickly, whilst others may not see results for several weeks later than above. We recommend that you take a daily Rejuvenated Collagen Shots continuously for twelve weeks to really see the full benefits.
If you have been taking Collagen Shots regularly and forget to take it on one or two occasions, there will not be any significant effects to prevent the skin improving.
However, if you discontinue use of these supplements, the benefits will slowly disappear and your skin will eventually return to its original state.
