Hi guys... Sorry for the lack of posting lately. Here is a review on Meiji Amino Collagen. Number one Collagen supplement in Japan according to H.B Foods and Marketing 2012.
Meiji Amino Collagen is one of the most well known brand among many collagen products, origin from Japan. Do you feel familiar with the brand "meiji"? hehe... do you know the meiji biscuit brand, I like the strawberry stick biscuit by meiji brand? It's one of my favorite snacks. It's the same company that producing this collagen. :)
I bought from sasa during promotion, buy two free one, per can about USD 48.40 sasa usually have this promotion time to time. Per can is for 28 days consumption, inside the can you will find a measurement spoon. One spoon per day of 5000mg of collagen. Can mix with hot drink or cold drink or even add into foods. Not to worry to add into hot drink it won't change the property or benefits of this product.
This is what the packing look like, they do have the re-fill packing as well, same price with can type.
You will find a measurement spoon inside, one can enough for 28 days. One spoon per day. Almost finish this can as you can see.
When we age the collagen in our body will start declining and thus we need collagen supplement to maintain youthful looking skins. This is is the main reason why many collagen products in the market, even thought there are many arguments about its efficiency, many proven to be producing good results.
I am into my third can of Meiji Amino Collagen. My first time taking this collagen, it was awful because I took it plain mix with a glass of water, because I just wanted to know what it taste like. It tasted "fishy", smell fishy as well not very pleasant to consume on its own. After that I took it with hot chocolate drinks, can't smell or taste the fishy smell anymore, so it was much better.
I finished 2 cans already and do my skin improve? well I don't see major changes on my skin but I did find my skin smoother and brighter, but I am not 100% sure it is due to this product because I also have been using other skin care products on my face. My overall skin does look supple and slightly brighter. Overall I would say it does help in keeping your skin supple and youthful. But don't expect a miracle.
What I like about this product:
- Keep skin look supple and youthful
- Can mix with hot drink
- Reliable and well known brand
What I don't like about this product:
- Smell and tested fishy
- Quite pricey
I will try another brand next time, I am thinking of FINE Collagen, the price is about USD 2 more expensive than this brand and also originated from Japan, I will write a review on it once I tried them out. You can visit their official website if you are interested to check out more details about this product...
