Won a 10 day supply of the collagen gold drinks, which I was pleased about, as they would have been ££ to try otherwise. I know 10 days isn't a long time, in the grand scheme, but can't say I noticed any difference tbh. For me, not worth the major investment of a longer course.
I swear by them. They make me look brighter, more youthful and my skin is plumped. Don't get the shite in H&B though. The best I've found is by a company called Olimp Labs. My notoriously skeptical DP is a convert too.
I'm not in UK so not sure you get this particular brand there, but I did buy a course of those collagen drinks, I think it was a two week course. I cant say I saw a huge difference in that time.
But then I found a supplement which is collagen and omegas, i thought the omegas would help my ibs and the collagen part was just a bonus. Well within 2 weeks I did notice a difference. Not just my skin which did seem clear and and the wft lines didnt seem so deep, but my nails and hair is where I noticed the most difference.
So I just keep taking them, as it could be the omegas, but also could be the collagen factor.
I can’t lost a link as it keeps going into the Amazon ap, but I’ve been taking these for over two years now. I’ve no idea if they work because I also take vit E and a Multivit for my skin plus I have a rigorous skincare routine, however my skin is looking pretty good for its age. I take just one per day and a pot lasts six months.
A couple of studies have found that ingesting collagen increases the amount of collagen in the skin. It may be that the body detects these amino acids in the blood stream, which is read as an injury/breakdown and triggers the production of more collagen.
