The Belo Collagen Powder Drink

October 28, 2014

A few weeks ago, I received a package from Dr. Vicky Belo.. (okay, it is from the awesome Nuffnang team!). The package is from the Belo Nutraceuticals. A cute dainty bag with mason jar and Belo’s new product – the Belo Collagen Powder Drink.

I was ready to embrace the glorious life and be #BeYouthiful after reading the materials. It was like holding the elixir of staying young ( I want to keep it in my safety box!)


But, I have to postpone testing and tasting the product, because I was traveling (and I was worried about side effects). Last week, I got the chance to try the new Belo Collagen Powder Drink and here’s my review of the new product.

I love the mason jar that comes with the package 🙂
The fine print
Belo Collagen Powder Drink Ingredients: 
Marine Collagen 5,000 mg, Maltodextrin 1,270 mg, Arginine 450 mg, Xanthan Gum 90 mg, Glucosamine HCI 60 mg, Sodium Ascorbate 60 mg, Vanilla 50 mg, Sodium Hyaluronate 20 mg

First off, what causes aging?

Dr. Vicky Belo compared our skin with a new sofa. When you are young, it is like a brand new sofa. When you sit in a new sofa, you pushed back up; but with old one, you sink in. Same with the skin – and it is because of collage. When you are young, the mattress (skin) feels firm. The collagen which is 70% of our skin support the structure naturally making it plump and youthful. Collagen prevents wrinkles.

But as we age, production of collagen declines. Add the stresses of life, daily wear and tear, sun exposure and other negative factors.

Collagen Powder Drink

Collagen Powder Drink is not new in the market. It is very popular in Japan, and now, we have collagen powder drink from Belo Nutraceuticals.

The new innovative product promises anti-aging benefits that work from within. It is made of high-absorption collagen that gives skin an abundance of strength, elasticity and resilience. It is also infused with Hyaluronic Acid.

I have to research about the Hyaluronic Acid as it is the first time I encounter this ingredient. I am skeptical about trying and drinking new products.

The Hyalurinoc acid is naturally present in the body, but it is also use in plastic surgery as lip filler, or to heal wounds. It is a moisture magnet that improves skin hydration.

I was all set to try and have my share from the fountain of youth. I mixed the Belo Collagen Powder Drink with coffee. It has this funny smell (I was expecting a milky tone because it is pure white). It made my coffee lighter and more like a latte. There is an aftertaste but tolerable.

How to drink Belo Collagen Powder Drink?
Belo Collagen Powder Drink has a neutral flavor that you can mix with any drink or even soup. 1 sachet a day dissolved in favorite hot or cold drink (even yogurt) to help skin hydrated and moisturized. It is best taken twice a day (morning and night).
What I like about Belo Collagen Powder Drink:
Conveniently packaged (you can bring a sachet anywhere!)
It easily dissolves and mix with the drink
I didn’t get breakouts after drinking it.
I missed my monthly visit to the Derma, but my skin remained good even if I am out of my regular skin care products.
Belo Collagen Powder Drink is good with my tummy (didn’t affect my bowel movement)
What I don’t like about Belo Collagen Powder Drink:
The smell (it doesn’t smell bad but I am just put off about the smell).
My mom said that I look healthier (even if I don’t get to sleep well at night) I usually sleep at 3 in the morning and wake up at 9 am. I love that Belo Collagen Powder Drink is good with my skin and tummy. I love the idea that we can take collagen from a simple powder mix that we can mix with our favorite drinks. It is perfect for those who don’t have the time to plan their meals and incorporate collagen-rich products in their dietI personally do not drink food supplements (even multivitamins! haha) because I want to take natural food and vitamins.  I might continue taking the collagen powder drink, but I felt that it is a bit pricey to be taken twice a day. I feel that I can buy more nutritious products from the money that I would spend for this wonder drink. But for those who have the budget, it is a good alternative than the other oral capsules available in the market.

Php 1,592.50 per box of 14 sachets (around $35)
