Review: Maxine Laceby Absolute Collagen

As we get older, our skin becomes less supple, less clear and less able to support itself. The effects of this are only too clear as we start to lose collagen – and as a 50 something, I speak from some experience!

Collagen is a major structural protein and is an important component of our skin, bones and the connective tissue in our bodies.

It is composed of amino acids that provide strength and structural support to our skin, hair, nails, tendons, ligaments and blood vessels.

Our collagen levels are highest when we are young – that’s why our kids have smooth skin and shiny hair. But, sadly, collagen levels begin to deplete from the age of 25 and by the time we get to 40 we will have lost around a third of our collagen – hello wrinkles and sagging!

Factors like pollution, ageing, smoking and alcohol consumption lead to a high rate of collagen degradation over time, resulting in wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin.

A healthy diet is vital for good skin but we can give our bodies a little extra help by taking a collagen supplement which can help restore this vital substance and reduce the signs of ageing.

I’ve just discovered Absolute Collagen  – an innovative new product designed to leave your skin softer, healthier and reduce the signs of ageing.  You simply drink a sachet a day for healthier, happier skin.

Absolute Collagen’s unique anti-ageing liquid formula is claimed to provide you with the highest dose of collagen in the most concentrated daily dose in the most convenient way.

It contains f2000 hydrolyzed marine collagen and each 10ml serving contains 8000mg of hydrolysed marine collagen. Their advanced formula is also infused with vitamin C, which works together with fish collagen for optimum skin rejuvenation and tissue renewal.

Fish collagen, also known as ‘marine collagen’, is extracted from cold-water fish. After manufacturers extract collagen from the fish, they refine it to remove the unpleasant fishy odour and taste while retaining the collagen’s nutritional value.

Marine collagen enters the bloodstream faster than other types of collagen, so it is the best source of collagen for you.

Absolute Collagen contains 8000MG of collagen per dose, which is a higher concentration than any other collagen solution and it’s made in the UK too.

Absolute Collagen is 100% natural protein and free of dairy, lactose, soy, wheat and gluten. It contains no artificial colours, flavours. The product is free of fat and cholesterol and contains 36 calories per 10ml sachet.

I found Absolute Collagen easy to take and pleasant tasting with a slight lemon flavour.  Either take directly from the sachet or dissolve in a little hot water and drink.  It’s an easy way to supplement your skincare routine which, like many busy mums, is pretty non-existent in my case!

Absolute Collagen can be purchased direct from the company’s website or on Amazon.

    Cleanse twice at night, once to remove make up or surface dirt and the second to give a gentle deep clean followed by serum and moisturiser. I find Neal’s Yard products are especially good.
