This is my box of collagen. Collagen comes in many forms and this box contains satchets of liquid collagen in ingestible form.
But firstly “What is Collagen & why is it so important?” –
Collagen is a powerful anti-ageing ingredient, it acts to fights against the visible signs of ageing. Collagen is the largest natural protein in our bodies,
The effect of the loss of collagen on our skin is often very noticeable, Collagen depletion can cause deterioration of our skin and connective tissues.
When we are young our collagen levels are at their highest, which explains why children and especially babies have such smooth skin and hair.
When the collagen becomes weaker, usually with age; it begins to sag often showing as lines, crows feet or turkey neck, doctors call this Ptosis. This is due to collagen depletion.
Collagen can be replaced. Many high end skin care and most anti aging products contain some sort of collagen.
“Fish collagen, also known as ‘marine collagen’, is extracted from cold water fish. After manufacturers extract collagen from the fish, they refine it to remove the unpleasant fishy odour and taste while retaining the collagen’s nutritional value.”
So that’s what this product is all about. In the box costing £29.99 I get 14 individual 10ml satchets. I take one per day, I can take it mixed with a drink or just on its own from the packet. It has a very sweet taste, not the nicest thing in the world but it’s not revolting either and there isn’t much of it.
As for results; I have only been taking this for a few days. It isn’t an overnight miracle treatment but more of an ongoing beauty regime. My face and body are not overfilled with lines and wrinkles anyway, but I do have a few noticeable lines on my head so hopefully this product may help a little.
This box for women can be purchased directly from the Absolute collagen website for £29.99. They also offer a slightly different version for males and this can also be purchased via a subscription service.
