I had been trying out this collagen supplement from Nature's Bounty for about 3 weeks now and would like to share with you my feedback so far. In a positive sense, my hair seems much thicker and longer, nail growth seems way faster than my normal mechanism, skin is just smoother and moisturised.
So I have been googling and technically, collagen are a kind of protein where our body needs, no matter is for generation of skin, nails, hair and bones. I am not gonna pretend I am an expert in biology so here is the real definition from Wiki.
Why do I have a sudden crave for this? I do experience long term skin dryness to a point it is flaky. I do notice my hair is not as good as before, easy breakage, hair loss and greys. Nails, I do have verticle lines on my nails (which does signify some kind of deficiency) as well as weak bones . I guess I am getting old overall and it is bad that I noticed it now!
Day 1: I do noticed my skin are much calmer with shrinked pores, less oily after my first sleep drinking 15mL of this collagen.
Day 5: My hair are much softer, plummed and significant decrease in hair loss (judging my floors are much cleaner.........haha!)
Day 10: My nails are growing much of a faster rate where I need to keep them clipped always.
These goodness are now staying with me and I am waiting to see if it helps my joints etc after prolonged use.
In take: I take roughly 15mL daily at 10pm. Between 11-2pm, it is the recommended time where our body where our metabolism regenerates our skin and bones. You may add it to drinks etc. Personally I prefer to just drink it solo, it is a mix of sour and sweetness.
In previous days of my life, I do believe in birds nest, which is also an expensive dose of collagen . As days and age grows, it seems hard to find a trustworthy shop to get good quality birdsnest and the preparation process seems too daunting for me nowadays. Plus it is soooooo expensive!
I had not shopped around too much but just picked this collagen from Natures Bounty but however it does ring a bell somehow with its image floating on trams. I think I used up only a few inches of the product so far and it should have a long way to go for HKD499. I do hope I could gear myself up to finish one bottle and see how my body goes.
In terms of the brand Nature's Bounty, I had lately found out this US vitamins provider is available in HK and surprisingly it does produce other vitamins supplement that I would love to try in the next few months I hope.
