As we age, we need to be more cautious with our food intake and regular exercise is a must no matter how much we abhor working up a sweat. After all, it gets harder to shed the excess weight once our metabolism slows down. Getting enough sleep is also important. I always try to sleep before midnight unless I am rushing something but I do realize that for a lot of people nowadays, there aren’t enough hours in a day, what with work taking up most of the hours and coming home to housework.
Ageing also means that collagen levels are down and we need to find ways to supplement or increase the collagen level. Collagen is a protein made up of amino acids, which are in turn built of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen. Collagen contains specific amino acids (Glycone, Proline, Hydroxyproline and Arginine) to act as building blocks needed to make proteins, including collagen and elastin. This aids skin repair and regeneration and promotes new cell growth.
This is where Blackmores Collagen 10,000mg High Strength plays a role – it is enhanced with Grape Seed Extract and Vitamin E for complete skin rejuvenation in just 6-12 weeks. Collagen regenerates and repairs skin, while promoting new cell growth for firm and radiant youthful beauty. Antioxidants vitamin E and grape seed extract helps in protecting cells from free radical damage. Those who are experiencing the following signs can consider taking collagen drinks/supplements:
Fine lines and wrinkles
Brittle hair and nails
Skin pigmentation I’ve experienced all of the above except rough skin and enlarged pores. However, it’s inevitable at my age. Fortunately, I can improve the situation as there’s Blackmores Collagen 10,000mg High Strength which I have been taking for over a week now. It has a delicious berry taste because of the grape seed extract that has no fishy smell at all and it contains high quality fish collagen. It also has apple juice and citric acid so the taste is very fruity. You know how some collagen drinks can be a little difficult to consume because of the fishy taste? Well not with Blackmores Collagen 10,000mg High Strength as it is extremely palatable. Blackmores Collagen 10,000mg High Strength has fish collagen, Vitamin E and Grape Seed Extract as its active ingredients.

If the collagen’s breakdown in your body is much faster and at a higher rate than what your body is producing, you may need a longer time to see the benefits of the collagen drink/supplement. In other words, you would see the benefits faster at a younger age so someone like me will probably need at least a month to six weeks to see a marked difference in my skin.
