Collagen is the body protein that provides structure to your skin, bones, tendons and ligaments.
It is essential for healthy hair and nails.
As we age, our body produces less of it and of inferior quality.
Skin becomes thinner and more dry/lined, hair too starts thinning and acquires a dull appearance, nails become brittle.
We live in an age of quick fix solutions such as Botox and derma filler injections, designed to instantly iron out wrinkles, plump the facial lines and generally sculpt the facial features to a more youthful appearance.
None of the above address the body’s depleted resources of collagen, however.
Consuming a great deal of meat and/or fish is not an option, firstly because many of us are committed vegetarians or electing to eat less meat on principled grounds.
We live busy lives and calibrating our eating habits for an optimum collagen-rich food intake requires consistent effort.
The supplement market has addressed this by launching countless collagen-rich powders, but how does one choose the right product?
We have tested a number of products over a period of time.
First of all, the responsibly sourced, organic versions DO work. Skin re-acquires its lost elasticity, nails and hair grow faster.
Protein powders tend to be either bovine or marine-based. We favour marine collagen, because it is more efficient and because we prefer the vegetarian alternative.
When choosing a marine collagen supplement, it is important to ensure it is 100% natural and organic, and doesn’t smell or taste of fish.
Reverse Life is a relatively new product that comes in liquid form, offering a 30 day money back guarantee.
Formulated with type I and III hydrolysed collagen peptides, Reverse Life contains different proteins that serve separate purposes within the body.
These two types of collagen (I and III) are the main types found in connective tissues, making up 90% of the body’s total collagen content.
The daily dose of 25ml daily serving contains a massive 10,000mg of hydrolysed marine collagen (those of us who buy collagen supplements regularly know this is A LOT).
The product is created and tested in a Swedish laboratory and meets EU quality standards.
The non-GMO formulation includes only natural fruit flavours and colours and is free from gluten, yeast, soya, nuts, eggs, wheat and sugar.
As a bonus, it tastes super nice, with not a hint of fish!
Forget the celebrity endorsements – try it out for yourself and we guarantee you will be as impressed as we are.
