Even if I feel young and live a very chill life, the reality is I am aging everyday. That is one thing that I cannot change, yet I won’t let gravity pull down my self-confidence.
I make sure that I stick to my good habits everyday to take care of my body and skin. I want to delay the signs of aging, and one of the proven ways to delay aging is by taking Collagen Drink Supplement.
I was previously introduced to this type of supplement years ago. This year, I decided to continue taking a bottle of collagen drink everyday.
What is Collagen & Benefits of Collagen Drink
Collagen is the main structural protein in the extracellular matrix found in the body’s various connective tissues. To put it simply, Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body that provides structure for skin, bone, teeth, ligaments, and cartilage. It provides the strength of our bones, the flexibility of our joints, and the smoothness of our skin.
It is like a “glue” that sticks all these parts. In fact, the word comes from the Greek word “kólla,” which means glue.
Our body produce collagen and in abundance to make our skin, bones, hair, nails, muscles, and all our organs, but we wind up producing less and less as we get older. As collagen production decreases leading to facial sagging, wrinkles and overall skin aging.
The good news is, we can replenish depleting collagen by drinking Collagen Drink supplements.
Collagen Drink by House of Obagi:
My Review and Experience
House of Obagi, a reputable skin care clinic carries different skin care products, including Beauty Collagen Drink Ex. The Beauty Collagen Drink Ex offers extra hydration and regenerates supple, elastic and healthy skin rapidly. Synergized with patented glutathione, the hydrolized small-molecule collagen speeds up effectiveness of the product. It is also formulated with Vitamin C and Coenzyme Q10
First thing I noticed about the Beauty Collagen Drink Ex is, it contains 12,000 mg Hydrolized Collagen – higher dose of collagen supplement compared to other collagen drink supplement (some only contains 200 mg).
I usually take it at night before going to sleep; and as suggested, it is best served chilled. Most people say that collagen drink may taste a little fishy, but I never tasted anything like that with this drink. It tastes like a normal supplement. I just follow it with a glass of water.
I have been taking one bottle everyday for 1 month and I love the results I see in my skin (not just in my face, but whole body overall). I read that for you to see the effects of the collagen drink, you have to take it for 8 weeks (thus the delay in this review).
For the first 2 weeks, I already see and feel that my skin feels refreshed, especially in the morning. My friends and mom say I have fuller cheeks. I didn’t expect to have glass skin or mochi skin, but I noticed that my skin feels smoother – even body skin.
One significant effect is how easy my burn had healed (in just a few days!). I burned my skin from baking, and I just applied ice (as first aid). I didn’t put any topical medicine, and in just 3 days, I see that it has healed. I usually get scar from burn or even mosquito bites, but I love how my skin recovered easily. I then checked and confirmed that one of the benefits of taking collagen drink is it helps with blood clot.
I have such brittle nails and I cannot keep it long (to maintain gel polish and nail art), but after taking Collagen Drink, I noticed that my nails have grown stronger and faster. I have to trim my nails more often now.
I noticed that I can easily recover from new workout routines. My muscle healed faster and I feel more flexible with new exercise routines.
If you will ask me if there are any side effects of taking Collagen Drink, the only thing I experienced is the taste. But it is already expected since we are not taking juice (or coffee). But compared to other collagen drinks I have tried, Collagen Drink Ex tastes better.
Things We Do that Damage Collagen
To make the most of the benefits of taking Collagen Drink, I want to make sure that I also make a positive change in my lifestyle and habits. Sharing some of the things I have learned that may damage the collagen in our body:
- Eating too much sugar and refined carbs. Sugar interferes with collagen’s ability to repair itself. I think cutting down on sugar is really a good move for health benefits.
- Getting too much sun exposure. I think it is also important to wear sun screen.
- Smoking. Smoking reduces collagen production. This can impair wound healing and lead to wrinkles.
I think taking a collagen drink supplement is something that I would add in my daily routine. Excited to see more positive results in my body and skin in the coming weeks.
