    The products can be purchased directly from the GOLD COLLAGEN® website. GOLD COLLAGEN® is also available at Shoppers Drug Mart, Rexall, Loblaws, The Real Canadian Superstore, London Drugs, Amazon as well as many other independent pharmacies within Canada.

  4.   Who makes GOLD COLLAGEN®?

    MINERVA Research Labs Ltd. registered in the UK with offices in London, New York, and Tokyo. The product is manufactured in a state of the art manufacturing facility in Japan, certified with ISO 9001 Quality Management System.

  5.   How long has the product been on the market?

    Pure GOLD COLLAGEN®, the first product in MINERVA's portfolio was first launched in the UK in 2011.

  6.   What is collagen?

    Collagen is a protein found naturally in the body. It provides the mattress underpinning for soft, youthful skin, preserving its firmness and elasticity as well as the cushioning to protect joints. The body’s ability to make collagen decreases with age. We lose up to 1.5 % of collagen per year from the approximate age of 25! This loss of collagen can also be aggravated by certain lifestyle and external factors such as smoking and sun exposure. Fine lines and wrinkles form, and the skin loses its natural hydration. Watch our expert, Dr Martin, explain what collagen is in greater detail here and how it helps counteract the visible signs of aging. Drink Gold Collagen liquid supplements daily to stimulate more production of collagen, reducing the appearance of wrinkles while helping to stimulate skin hydration .

  7.   What is the difference between the collagen in the skin and the collagen in the product?

    The collagen naturally present in our skin, joints, tendons and ligaments has a high molecular weight (~300kDa). If applied on skin topically, it cannot be absorbed and if ingested, it is not easily digested or absorbed. The collagen used in our product is hydrolysed collagen (a smaller peptide form of collagen), which has a lower molecular weight (0.3 – 8KDa). It is easily digested in the stomach and absorbed in the small intestine where it enters the blood stream and reaches the deeper layer of the skin.

  8.   How does GOLD COLLAGEN® differ from your average anti-aging cream?

    Our innovative products are centred around premium quality ingredients as well as our convenient and easy to ingest liquid format in tasty fruit flavours. Unlike topical products such as collagen creams and lotions, which are unable to reach the dermis and work only on the surface of the skin, GOLD COLLAGEN® products work from within to nourish and rejuvenate for youthful and beautiful skin.

  9.   I’m in my 30’s, should I take GOLD COLLAGEN® Forte?

    "If you are in your 30’s, The GOLD COLLAGEN® Pure Family would be the best place for you to start. The Pure Family are products specially developed to help counteract the first signs of aging and promote a more beautiful appearance. With regular use, you can expect an improvement in hydration and radiance, while your fine lines and wrinkles will appear reduced and skin will feel firmer. If, however, you are looking for a stronger product, you can certainly try GOLD COLLAGEN® Forte. It has been specifically designed for those aged 40+, or who want an added anti-aging boost to help counteract the appearance of the more advanced signs of aging. Enhanced with 2x more moisture-retaining hyaluronic acid compared to the PURE GOLD COLLAGEN® family of products as well as added antioxidants to help support oxidative stress.

    The collagen-enriched formula also combines a unique, powerful blend of anti-oxidants including resveratrol, acai berry, coenzyme Q10, pomegranate, lycopene and L-carnosine. With regular use, you can expect an improvement in hydration and radiance, fine lines and deeper wrinkles will appear reduced and skin will feel firmer while providing protection against oxidative stress."

  10.   I’m already taking Pure GOLD COLLAGEN®, can I take an additional Gold Collagen liquid collagen supplement in the same day?

    We recommend to only take 1 Gold Collagen liquid supplement per day as many ingredients found within each liquid formulation contains 100% of your daily recommended intake. Taking more than 1 serving at a time may result in over consuming some of the vitamins and minerals found within the liquid collagen supplement

  11.   Where does the collagen come from?

    Gold Collagen liquid formulations use hydrolysed collagen extracted from fish skin (Tilapia fish). All fish used to extract the collagen come from fish farms registered by the European Union for the import of edible fish and are deemed fit for human consumption and guaranteed by health certificates signed by official veterinarians.

  12.   Why are the products in a liquid form rather than tablets?

    "Our scientists have formulated GOLD COLLAGEN® supplements in liquid format instead of a tablet or pill for the following reasons: Optimal absorption + bioavailability - Absorption is better in liquids because it is already in solution and thus requires less processing in the digestive system (e.g. dissolution of tablets).

    Less processing within the digestive system

    More active ingredients- Tablets and powders cannot effectively combine as many ingredients at a high dose compared to a liquid, therefore a liquid provides a more complex and complete formula.

    Easier to take everyday- People from all walks of life may benefit from liquid form collagen supplements.Anyone who has problems swallowing tablets will find our supplement drinks easy to take and a pleasant alternative especially for people who experience difficulty in swallowing etc.

    You can view our video on tablet vs powders vs pills here to help you better understand the absorption benefits of our liquid collagen supplements! For those who prefer tablets, we have developed DEFENCE, which is easy to take with you when travelling or in between taking your favourite Gold Collagen liquid supplement."

  13.   Do the products contain fish oils, porcine, chicken, beef, antibiotics, hormones (or phyto hormones or phytoestrogens), genetically modified organisms, use of nanotechnology, gluten, sugars, alcohol, artificial preservatives, or artificial colours?

    That depends on the particular product. Our liquid collagen formulations for PURE, FORTE, & HAIRLIFT are all made from premium marine collagen (derived from fish). All our products are gluten-free. For those on a vegan and vegetarian diet, we recommend our Vegan tablet alternative, Gold Collagen DEFENCE, which works hard to help nourish your skin, hair and nails from within, in a travel-friendly light format.

    No, GOLD COLLAGEN® products do not have any of the above mentioned.

  15.  Is Gold Collagen suitable for vegetarians and vegans?

    "Collagen is a protein found naturally in the skin, preserving its firmness and elasticity. All collagen comes from animal protein. Therefore, a vegan collagen does not exist. Contrary to collagen supplements (derived from animal proteins), GOLD COLLAGEN® DEFENCE offers is our special formula specially formulated to provide support for those on a vegan and vegetarian diet, while helping nourish your skin, hair and nails from within.

  22.   Can the GOLD COLLAGEN® products be taken in combination with other food supplements?

    Yes, however, please bear in mind that each product contains ingredients such as vitamins that are already at the maximum recommended daily allowance (RDA, now replaced by NRV Nutrient Reference Value) so you need to ensure that you do not exceed your daily nutritional needs. It would be best to consult with your doctor to ensure you are receiving the optimal amount for your daily nutritional needs.

  23.   For how long do you need to use the product to see visible results?

    The product results will vary depending on the individual and their starting skin, hair, health conditions, diet and lifestyle. According to our clinical trial results, with daily and consecutive use of the product (1x bottle), one can expect the skin to become more hydrated within 3 weeks, followed by a reduction in fine lines and deeper wrinkles within 6 weeks and an increase in skin elasticity within 9 weeks. Some individuals have reported to experience more positive results and/or at a faster rate than others. Our recommendation is that the product should be taken for 12 weeks in order to realise all its benefits. There is no maximum length of time over which Gold Collagen® supplements may be used, provided you do.

  24.   What happens when I stop taking the product?

    Our research studies show that the level of collagen slowly reverts back to its original level before any GOLD COLLAGEN® treatment started. Most of our customers, once they have adopted the product into their daily health and wellbeing routine, never look back. Some of our customers do stop using Gold Collagen® and many of them also come back for the same reason.

  25.   Can I use the product if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?

Clinical studies show that GOLD COLLAGEN® HYDROGEL MASK is particularly effective in increasing skin hydration and improving its brightness and appearance, reducing erythema and skin pigmentation caused by photo-aging. It can also be used in the treatment of common skin problems, such as dry and dull skin. Thanks to its hydrogel technology and the moisturizing and soothing properties of the active ingredients, the mask can be applied immediately after an aesthetic treatment, providing an immediate sense of freshness."

  32.   What’s the difference between the hydrogel mask and cream masks?

    Hydrogel masks are made up of three-dimensional networks of polymers with highly effective moisturizing properties thanks to their high water content. In addition to its moisturizing properties, the hydrogel base used in the GOLD COLLAGEN® HYDROGEL MASK is heat sensitive. This type of hydrogel has been chosen to facilitate the continuous and controlled administration of the active components, which are released into the skin thanks to the physical changes of the hydrogel base. Once the mask comes into contact with the skin, it gives an immediate cooling effect and as it reaches the body temperature it releases the active ingredients, which penetrate directly into the skin.

  33.   How often do you advice to use the hydrogel mask?

    Remarkable effects were observed in a clinical study already after 1 mask application, further highly statistically significant increase in skin hydration and improvement in the skin tone were observed after 4 applications of the GOLD COLLAGEN® HYDROGEL MASK. Our Hydrogel Mask should be applied topically on clean skin once a week for a minimum of 4 weeks to achieve the maximum benefits of increased skin hydration and luminosity.

  34.   Is the mask reusable?

    No, the mask should be disposed after use.

  35.   What is the best moment of the day to use the mask?

    The GOLD COLLAGEN® HYDROGEL MASK can be applied at any time of the day; it can be an excellent make-up base and make your skin glow before an important meeting or It can be applied before going to sleep to allow the skin to fully absorb the nutrients.

  36.   How long does the mask need to stay on my face?

    Our Hydrogel Mask should be applied on dry, clean skin for 30 minutes. The hydrophilic hydrogel base technology together with the penetrating abilities of hyaluronan create a mask which is able to deliver the active ingredients into the skin, leading to significant improvement in skin hydration, skin tone and skin appearance within 30 minutes! It’s perfect to apply before makeup, or just before bedtime for radiant, glowing morning skin.

  37.   Do I need to wash off the remaining liquid on my face afterwards?

    The Hydrogel Mask should be removed gently and any excess moisture which is not absorbed after 30 minutes can be gently massaged into the skin.

  38.   When will I see results with Gold Collagen®?

    Our motto for results is this:
