Beauty Review: Ultimate Colla-gen
A mysterious package arrived at my doorstep…
And here’s the big reveal!
Ultimate Colla-gen sent me their early Christmas wishes via a generous box of Ultimate Colla-gen Gold with 30 sachets of collagen goodness.Since I’m in my 20s, there’s no better time to try collagen supplements than now because collagen levels begin to slip drastically at this time – at about 1.5% a year. Collagen occupies up to 30% of total body protein being found in the skin, bone, cartilage, blood vessels, tendons and teeth. It is responsible for the elasticity of our skin and the constant renewal of our skin cells. Research has proven that the skin aging process occurs in our connective tissues which are largely made up of collagen.
So not only do we face quarter-life crisis at 25, we also face ‘rapid aging crisis’ at 25.
That’s not all. Rather alarmingly, by the age of 45, the collagen levels in your body will have reduced by up to 30%!
Besides the appearance of fine lines, dull skin-tones and loss of elasticity of our skin, we’ll also experience increased levels of weakness and fatigue!Well, this is where the star of today’s post comes in.
Korean beauty company, NewScience Laboratories promises to replenish the lost collagen with Ultimate Colla-gen that offers the lowest Nano-molecular structure in Collagen for easier and faster absorption. Ultimate Colla-gen uses real blue berry extract, which has a light, refreshing taste. Halal-certified in Korea, each 38kcal sachet of Ultimate Colla-gen contains 5,000mg of Nano Collagen combined with an optimum and synergistic mix of 6 other multi-nutrients like Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, Probiotics, Glucosamine, Acai Berry, Real Blueberries extract, Chondroitin, Silica and MSM.
A-List Hallyu Korean stars Lee Min Ho and Ms Kim Hee Sun are also great advocators of Ultimate Colla-gen!
I received the Ultimate Colla-gen Gold that promises to nurture joints, bones and skin with 5000mg of pure nano sized premium hydrolyzed Collagen.
Here’s what I think…
Honestly, since the Slim 10 debacle and other similar incidents, I’ve never taken any other oral supplements besides Vitamin C and multi-vitamin pills. Not surprisingly, I was pretty hesitant to try this collagen drink initially. So I got a friend who’s a doctor to inspect the ingredients and he assured me that the ingredients of the product are safe for consumption.
Thereafter, I began drinking the Ultimate Colla-gen Gold everyday. It has been three weeks and I’m falling in love with its delicious and refreshing flavor! I’ve never tried collagen drinks so I was expecting a TCM taste. Haha!
The folks at Ultimate Colla-gen suggested that we take the collagen supplement with water or juice. Well, I think water alone will suffice. Trust me cus I’m drinking it as I’m typing this.
I must say I do feel healthier after consuming this supplement – no illnesses and it helped me to climb the Great Wall of China (without tearing any joints or breaking any bones).
However, I’m not sure if the goodness of the supplement has reached my skin. I’ve seen no visible results on my appearance yet. Laugh lines are still sitting firmly on my face. I guess I’ll have to drink this for another couple of months to see any results on my complexion.
Even though it is priced at SGD88 per box, I thought the price is still pretty reasonable compared to collagen supplements from brands such as Fancl and Kinohimitsu. Psst! Kinohimitsu J’pan Beauty Drink cost S$39.90 for a box of 6!
For its delectable taste, health benefits and reasonable priceline, 3.5 Honeyz crowns!
Beauty tip! The best times to drink collagen supplements are in the mornings or before you go to bed. This ensures maximum absorption of the nutrients of the supplement.
