As we age, Collagen production decreases. Women who are going through menopause become especially susceptible to collagen deficiency. Research has shown that women lose as much as 30% of their skins collagen during the five years post menopause onset. The product reviews we’ve received for Collagen Plus are outrageously good, with customers noticing changes to their skin within the first week of use.
Collagen is the protein that makes your bones, nails, teeth and hair strong. With over one-quarter of the protein in the body being made up of collagen, it is hard to ignore just how important it is in supporting various functions in our bodies. Collagen Plus contains silicic acid and biotin - trace minerals needed by the body to produce collagen, both can be found in food sources but unfortunately these food sources are poorly absorbed. Collagen Plus contains 50 micrograms of biotin in each drop and enough silicic acid to powerhouse collagen production in hair, skin and nails.
What to expect when taking Collagen Plus:
- Smooth, beautiful, glowing skin
- Thicker, stronger, healthier hair
- Strong nails and bones
- More flexible connective tissue
- Stops receding gums
Studies including sexually active women between the ages of 18 and 65, have found that those who use petroleum jelly or oils intravaginally, increase their risk for bacterial infections by 22 to 32 percent. It is said that products like these can change the delicate balance of vaginal flora.
When choosing a lubricant, finding one that not only gets the job done but also won't disrupt the ratio of good and bad bacteria can be tricky. LOVE Personal Lubricant is a great solution to Vaginal dryness, which can occur at various stages of a woman’s life. It contains Turnera diffusa leaf extract, which is known to reduce stress and increase sexual function. It also contains grapefruit seed extract, which aids in restoring the normal vaginal balance and is said to inhibit harmful vaginal bacteria. It is a common belief amongst women, that personal lubricant is for use only during intercourse. This is not the case as a lubricant can be used throughout the day to prevent infections, itching, burning, heat and pain from the dryness.
What to expect when using LOVE Personal Lubricant:
- Restores vaginal lubrication
- Improves normal vaginal balance
- Safe while trying to achieve pregnancy
- Does not dry or become sticky
- Does not contain parabens, toxic preservatives, mineral oil, animal products or petroleum ingredients
Glucosmart has been researched specifically for women with PCOS, acne, male facial hair growth, elevated androgens, belly fat, insulin resistance and diabetes. There have been more than 30 published studies showing that Chirositol, a nutrient derived from carob, is effective as a supplement for insulin resistant conditions like weight gain, metabolic syndrome or type 2 diabetes.
Enter belly fat - changing hormones have been widely connected to expanding waistlines. The common hormone involved in developing belly fat is insulin. When in excess, insulin causes an elevation in male hormones like testosterone. Elevated testosterone can cause male facial hair growth, acne and PCOS in women. Elevated insulin and blood sugar leads to weight gain, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, diabetes and the dreaded belly fat. Chirositol is known to control blood sugar levels and glucose storage without causing low blood sugar in those with normal blood sugar levels. Chirositol is also said to elevate serotonin, the happy hormone. By doing so, this is linked to a reduction in sugar cravings and appetite control.
What to expect from Glucosmart:
- Fights belly fat in men and women
- Aids weight loss
- Normalizes insulin and blood sugar
- For pre-diabetics and type 2 diabetics
- Enhances serotonin, our happy hormone
- Reduces sugar cravings
- Halts polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
- Improves fertility and egg quality in those with PCOS
- Stops skin tags associated with pre-diabetes
- For men and women
- Controls elevated testosterone levels that cause male facial hair grown in women

Very good product! Review by dominique
My husband and I are taking collagen plus. Within the first week, we could already notice our skin and hair being softer! Also, it has given me more definition along my jaw line. Talk about a face lift in a bottle! (Posted on 7/29/2017)*

Great Product Review by Love lulu
I am 52 years old and started taking calcium/magnesium for my osteoporosis and osteoarthritis and it did nothing for my bone pain. I was in constant pain due to the fractures that I've had for years that refuse to heal, so I stopped taking the cal/mag and started using this product 2 months ago after my 78 year old friend told me that she takes liquid collogen which stopped her bone pain due to her osteoporosis. I couldn't believe that within a 3 week period my bone pain subsided, my nails also stopped breaking and are now strong and long, I also have Hashimoto's diease which causes my hair to fall out, but not anymore, it's thicker and no longer falling out. I just purchased my second bottle of Collogen Plus and will continue to stay on it, plus a daily intake of 4000iu of liquid vitamin D3.

Fabulous Hair Review by Born1958Alex
Shoulder length very fine hair, its been 10 weeks now and less dry ends falling off when brushing and feels healthy fuller and great to touch. I also sparsely apply the LornaV GLA Borage Oil and this helps smooth my hair and reduce frizz. My hair is in better condition now, than when I was 30. (Posted on 11/22/2015)*
Worked for PCOS sufferer Review by Meg
I was diagnosed with PCOS after not getting my period for about a year once I went off the pill. I read about a few studies showing a link between chirositol and PCOS and figured I'd try the Glucosmart.
After taking it for a month, a got my period and my cycle has remained relatively regular since that time (I have been taking the glucosmart consistently since then--about a year ago). I can't speak to the other purported health benefits, but in terms of combating missed periods and acne due to PCOS, it has worked! (Posted on 6/4/2017)*
Weight loss and sugar balance Review by Harvinder
This has been a great product!! This was first Lorna product i bought. That was May 2016. It is a miracle supplement. First thing i noticed was i stopped gaining weìģht. Within a week or two i started to see change in waist and abdomen.i started to lose belly weight. So for months i just enjoyed not gaining any more weight. I dropped about 7 pounds without any changes just with the supplement. That gave me couragé and faith to work on losing weight. I have now lost over 35 plus pounds and still losing. i am 54 years old and now i am working on getting down to 10 to 14 percent body fat. My cupboard now is full of lorna products. I slowly started adding more supplements. (Posted on 3/2/2017)*
So far so Good Review by Tanya
I have consistently taken these pills for the past while (gone through 3 bottles now, cant remember when I started them but i assume I would have been on them for 1 and a half months as I believe one bottle is only half a months supply) I have PCOS and am also pre-diabetic, so my periods have been way shorter and lighter than they use to be, which isn't good in my case. I was hoping that with exercise, diet and taking these pills I could reduce my use of metformin as it affects my body very negatively. I can honestly say that I haven't taken my metformin in the last month or so (except the odd pill here and there) and my last period actually lasted a day longer than usual and was a little heavier for once. Although It clearly takes some time to see the results, and the pills are VERY pricey (especially when you are taking 2 a day, they go quickly) So far they seem to be working. In addition to my period changes I have lost weight in my stomach as well which I also attribute to my exercise regiment and diet. Pricey or not, I will try to continue these for another couple months and see if my conditions continue to improve as they have been! Will try to cut back to afford it....after all, good health is priceless:-) (Posted on 10/7/2016)*
