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.
What does the aloe vera ingredient in Calorad® do?
Aloe vera contains enzymes that assist in the metabolic process of collagen but does not play a direct role with respect to fat loss. We use the gel just under the epidermis of the aloe vera leaf as opposed to the whole leaf.
How can the Calorad® provide a better night’s sleep?
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.

Are there any tips you can provide to ensure success/results?
Here are a few tips that will help:
Timing: Taking Calorad® should be the very last thing you do before going to sleep. It's very important that you try and fall asleep right after take the Calorad®, so it can work with your body's natural repair cycle.
Cheating: You're really only cheating yourself. Eating or drinking anything except water in the three hours prior to taking the Calorad® will reduce the effectiveness. When your body finds anything in your digestive system, it will use it for fuel (to heal and repair). When there is nothing there, your body has no choice but to turn to stored fat for that fuel.
Water: Drinking appropriate amounts of water, at least 64 oz (one half gallon) per day, helps rid the body of the excess build-up of toxins that are a by-product of fat metabolism.
Overeating: Overeating is stressful to the digestive system. While using Calorad®, a reasonable diet is recommended. Consuming more calories than you can burn off will hamper your progress.
Exercise: We recommend a regular exercise program. Exercise is always helpful in conjunction with any health and wellness program.
