Marketed as a ‘tripeptide drink for skin enhancement’, DHC Collagen Beauty 7000+ contains almost 50 per cent more collagen than many similar health drinks. According to DHC’s R&D, the key ingredient in its low-fat composition is fish collagen tripeptide, which is more readily absorbed by the body than most collagen derivatives from other animal sources.
Not only does this drink contain 7000 mg of collagen, it also has L-citrulline to enhance blood circulation, N-acetylglucosamine (which eventually forms hyaluronic acid) for high moisture retention ability and Vitamin C for effective collagen absorption.
Collagen fibres in our skin help retain moisture, enhancing suppleness. The brand encourages its customers to drink a bottle a day to replenish the collagen that we lose daily, no thanks to chronological and photo-ageing (oh, the skin degeneration that happens – dryness, roughness, wrinkles; not to mention the sagging…argh!). I’m not sure if ingesting collagen really helps but I know that this health supplement is popular in the Asian countries where it has been available for some time.
Muscat-flavoured and caffeine-free, this collagen drink comes in a box of ten 50 ml bottles (S$48 per box) and is sold exclusively at selected Watsons stores. From now until the end of Feburary 2010, buy two boxes and enjoy a 5% discount. :)
