As you probably already know that I consume a tablespoon of collagen powder everyday or when I am travelling, I would substitute that with collagen capsules.

My usual brand of collagen is Meiji but I decided to give the ULTIMATE COLLA-GEN a test drive. I am going to explain why collagen is important for all of us, whether you want to stay youthful or not. Here goes ~

THE ESSENTIALS ON COLLAGEN SUPPLEMENTS

 ❤ WHAT IS COLLAGEN?

Collagen occupies up to 30% of total protein in the body found in the skin, bone, joint, cartilage, blood vessels, tendons, and teeth. As we age, around the age of 25, collagen levels start to drop, at about 1.5% every year. Rather alarmingly, by the age of 45, the collagen levels in your body will have reduced by up to 30%.


 ❤ WHAT IS ULTIMATE COLLA-GEN ?

√ Korea’s No.1 preferred Collagen.

√ Ultimate Colla-gen offers Korean nano molecular collagen derived 100% from fish scales & laboratory tested to be more than 50% smaller than other commercial brands, ensuring efficacious absorption & utilization by the body.

Jacqueline's RECIPES USING  
ULTIMATE COLLA-GEN POWDER :



I personally do not see much differences between the Ultimate Colla-gen powder and Meiji's Collagen powder. Only plus point is that Ultimate Colla-gen powder is very handy and you know you are using the same amount every time since it is pre-packed in sachets. Also, its hygienic and very travel friendly!

For these recipes, I usually freeze my fruits in the freezer every time I return from the supermarket. 
I would pick out a batch of fruits for freezing and blending and another batch for me to consume.
I love using tofu in my smoothies but if you are not a fan, substitute with milk or soya bean milk.
The recipes I am sharing here are all tried and tested with my personal stamp of approval!! =))))
