Lately, supplements and consumption of vitamins for the hair and skin have been getting popular of late. One category of supplement intake is the collagen essence for the skin. Personally, this is my first time trying it as I was sceptical about the taste of such drinks and its actual benefits. When Hao Yi Kang asked me to try, however, I was eager to try as I knew that they curate their health products from Taiwan which has a long history of health supplements for consumers’ healthy living needs.
The collagen is a proprietary formula from Japan. Rich in collagen peptide (5000mg), plant polyphenols (147mg) and natural vitamin C (68mg). 100% natural with preservatives, additives, artificial flavourings and stabilizers.
The main ingredients in this collagen drink are Japan patented nano collagen peptide and plant polyphenols. This lower molecular weight peptide allows quicker assimilation into the body within 1 hour. In addition, there is presence of 4 types of plant polyphenols in the drink:
- Aid in detoxification
- Regulate blood sugar level
- Lower blood pressure
- Prevent constipation
- Helps with weight management
- Promote hair growth
- Improve cardiac function
- Help with insomnia
- Reduce anxiety
- Acerola Cherries
- Aid in iron absorption
- Boost immune system
The recommended consumption depends on the age group. Recommended intake:
- 20s: Consume 1 pack every 2 days. Build up skin foundation.
- 30s: Consume 1 pack daily. Maintain youthful skin.
- 40s: Pair 1 pack daily with our Chicken Essence for a nourished and radiant complexion
It is best to consume before breakfast or right before bed. I had it right before breakfast, but of course, after my dosage of water consumption once I wake up.
If you had tasted raw beetroot before, this drink has a combination of the beetroot taste and a Ribena drink. I like that the drink is not too sweet which makes it easier to drink at any time of the day.
What I like about this is that this is convenient to carry around. In your purse, with your lunch box, on the go! I brought some packets to my office as the collagen packets are really lightweight to carry around. If I were to drink on the go, I can even stick my straw in the packet like a packet drink. This has a shelf life of 18 months
It has been really easy drinking these packs for the past 2 weeks as they were easy to consume and carry around. While I cannot see much of a significant difference in my skin, I could see that my skin was a little less dehydrated and dry during my PMS period as it was an issue that I always encounter for my skin where it would be as dry as a dessert during the days leading up to my aunt flo. I believe it is due to the consumption of these collagen essences for the past 12 days.
