Why do I need collagen?
As we age, our collagen levels fall. These falls begin around the age of 25 (unless you are a professional sports person when the falls tend to begin earlier) and these falls in collagen are what leads to visible signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles and stiffer joints.
How long until I see the results?
Everyone is different. Your age, lifestyle and health will all be a factor in when and what differences you notice. In our independent clinical trial, about half the participants taking INGENIOUS Beauty noticed a difference within one month, but for the other half it took a further 2-4 weeks. However, we also know that for other people who are recovering from surgery, are older than 60 years of age or have unique health issues it can take ever longer for the results to be visible. Typically you will notice smoother skin, with fine lines and wrinkles lessened first, followed by stronger nails and more supple joints. Hair is one of the last parts of the body where people notice the benefits because hair has to grow and this takes a long time.
How do I take it?
We recommend taking three capsules daily. The best time to take them is before bed. While you sleep your body goes into ‘repair mode’ so this is the ideal time for the ingredients to work their magic. The capsules are most effective taken on an empty stomach (or at least an hour after eating). This is because the capsules are designed to pass through your stomach intact and only break down in the small intestine, where you will absorb the ingredients into your bloodstream. Taking the capsules therefore with little or nothing in your stomach allows them to pass through the digestive system more easily. If you prefer not to take all three capsules in the evening, you may split your dose and take one or two in the morning as soon as you wake. The important thing is getting the total of three capsules in during the day.
Are there any side effects?
All INGENIOUS ingredients are GRAS Certified, which means they are ‘Generally Recognized As Safe’. There are no known side effects of taking INGENIOUS and it does not interfere with other medicines or supplements. However, you should seek advice from your nutritionist or doctor if you have any concerns. It is not advised to take this supplement if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Who is it suitable for?
We recommend INGENIOUS collagen for men and women over the age of 25 who wish to maintain and replenish their collagen & hyaluronic acid stores. It is also for those who want to decrease the number of free radicals in their bodies. INGENIOUS raw materials have halal and kosher certification.

INGENIOUS Beauty is free from: gluten, dairy, wheat, artificial colours, preservatives, sugars or sweeteners, sulphates, caffeine, parabens, shellfish and soya.
How do I store it?
The bottle can be kept at room temperature. It is airtight and watertight provided the cap is screwed on properly. We recommend keeping it by your bed, so you always remember to take your capsules before going to sleep.
Quality not quantity
At INGENIOUS they use the very finest, low Dalton weight, hydrolysed collagen peptide. All of their collagen is consciously and sustainably sourced from the skin of free-swimming Tilapia fish. They never use farmed fish in their supplements. Their unique delivery mechanism and the fact they use 2000 Dalton weight collagen peptides ensures maximum absorption and efficacy. Because their collagen is protected (and therefore more effective) they are able to use far less than other brands, while still achieving amazing results. For with collagen, if you get the right the quality and delivery method, less is definitely more!
The INGENIOUS principles
All of the INGENIOUS ingredients are of the highest quality, active, naturally derived and sustainably sourced. INGENIOUS contains none of the added fillers or binding agents often found in less high-quality supplements. Their three ingredients are sealed in our specially designed enteric capsule shell which is made entirely of vegetable cellulose. INGENIOUS are committed to protecting the environment, therefore all our packaging is 100% recyclable.
What is the INGENIOUS secret?
To overcome the action of the stomach on the collagen peptide, INGENIOUS uses a unique, patented delivery system – a special capsule – to protect the collagen and keep it safe on its journey through the stomach. The capsule is a patented plant cellulose that will not break down in the stomach. Instead, it is able to pass through the stomach intact and travel to the small intestine; here the change in pH levels triggers the capsule to dissolve. To ensure that the marine collagen peptide is quickly absorbed once it is released into the small intestine, we use a peptide of the lowest possible molecular weight (below 2,000 Dalton). This is less than half the size of the industry average which is 5,000 Daltons. The collagen and the rest of the active ingredients are then absorbed through the small intestine directly into the bloodstream. As a result, INGENIOUS, the manufacturer, do not need to over-fill our capsules with collagen peptide, leaving space for other key ingredients. They use just the right amount of collagen to ensure you see stunning results, knowing every bit of it will be absorbed and utilised for firmer, smoother skin and overall vitality. Both their patented capsule and the quality of our collagen gives INGENIOUS unparalleled levels of absorption which no other collagen supplement can match.
