I was introduced to this collagen drink at the Anti-Aging Health & Beauty Show. I’ve always been a bit sceptical about supplements but the hype about collagen has produced a lot of good reviews and so I thought that I didn’t have anything to lose when the lovely people from Minerva asked me if I would try Pure Gold Collagen for 10 days.
The claim is that continued use of Pure GOLD COLLAGEN® can:
- Promote younger looking skin
- Support skin hydration
- Help support healthy looking hair and nails
- Reduce the appearance of wrinkles
They say best results are seen after at least 30 days use and I’ve only been testing it for the last 10 days. What I can say is this. Each drink is only 50ml so it’s not too much to have to consume each day. The taste is tolerable, it’s supposed to be fruity although I have to say it’s quite a strong flavour with a hint of artificial sweetener type flavouring.
Here’s what’s in it:
Hydrolysed Collagen – Stimulates the proliferation of fibroblasts and the production of collagen in the dermis.
Hyaluronic Acid – Essential for tissue hydration, lubrication and the production of collagen in the dermis.
Borage Oil – Rich in gamma lenolenic acids (GLAs) with omega-6 esential fatty acids to improve skin hydration.
N-acetylglucosamine – An essential component for the production of hyaluronic acid.
Vitamin C – Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation and the normal function of cartilage and skin.
Vitamin E – Vitamin E contributes to the protection of cell constituents from oxidative damage.
Vitamin B6 – Vitamin B6 contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism. Vitamin B6 contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Zinc – Zinc contributes to the maintenance of normal skin. Zinc contributes to the maintenance of normal hair. Zinc contributes to the maintenance of normal nails.
Copper – Copper contributes to normal skin and hair pigmentation. Copper contributes to maintenance of normal connective tissues.
Biotin – Biotin contributes to the maintenance of normal skin. Biotin contributes to the maintenance of normal hair.
Have I seen any measurable effects? I can’t be certain. My skin feels softer to the touch on my face and body. My hair is a little shinier. Could this just be my imagination? One or two people have been giving me compliments. Not about my skin but just in general about my hair looking nice and asking had I had it cut? I hadn’t but they just thought there was something different about me. Unfortunately I can’t give you a scientifically proven view of the effects. It just feels like it’s doing good things!
