beauty, inside out!

truth be told, i've never really been concerned about my skin's elasticity - well, not because i don't give two hoots about how i look or the rate of which my skin might be sagging (horrors of horrors) but rather, i'm kinda lazy to follow through routines like eating collagen pills, mixing collagen powder into my food/drinks, yadda yadda...

so imagine my elation when i found out about AVALON™ Fish Collagen!

what i love about it is how hassle-free it is - i can actually consume it right off the sachet! 
tried it out and it tastes like... powder with a hint of flavour.
personally, not so happening for me.
but if i'm ever in a hurry i can picture myself pouring a sachet of these into my mouth while waiting for the bus, hehehe. also love it that its travel-friendly, perfect for people on the go like me.

embarked on finding a tastier way to consume it!

in Mango, Blueberry and Lemon! all the fruity goodness in a sachet. 

tried the Mango one with cranberry juice!

see it slowly settle in the drink... 
think its normal to still have some powder bits in it. could still taste a hint of mango!

next up, mixed the Blueberry into my cup of warm water this morning.

the result: tasted like super diluted Ribena, haha.
not my favourite way to drink it definitely!

lastly, dunked the Lemon into orange juice.

vitamin C max max!

couldn't taste anything but orange!
so my verdict is that if you don't like the taste of it with water, just mix it with a strong-flavoured juice!
this was my favourite of the lot because i usually dislike diluted stuff :)

anyhowww, the thing about collagen powders is not the taste but rather the advantages it can bring to us.
for the uninitiated, let me tell you why collagen is important for our health and beauty.

70% to 80% of the protein composition in our skin, bones, joints, muscles, hair, nails, cartilage and blood vessels are made up of collagen - thus making collagen an important nurturing essence for our skin and bones. When the human body reaches 20 years of age (and i'm like 7 years beyond that!?) the collagen in our body naturally decreases, causing skin ageing, rough skin, dull complexion and pigmentation.
why didn't anyone tell me that before :(

i do have a couple of friends who take collagen drinks and powder mixes regularly and they do claim that it works. i haven't tried drinking this for an extended period of time yet so i can't gauge the effectiveness. 
will definitely try to include this into my daily diet since its so easy-peasy to handle! 

best of all, AVALON™ Japanese Fish Collagen doesn't have any added sugar - perfect for weight watchers or those with diabetes. its also jam packed with L-Vitamin C, probiotics, anti-oxidant and anti-ageing properties - what's not to like? ;)
