Absolute Collagen - Protein Rich Marine Collagen Supplement For Men

blog final.jpg

Superfoods and supplements have become more and more popular over the past years and we at The Amazing Blog are always on the lookout for new and beneficial supplements to include in our diet. There is still a big trend for ingestible beauty supplements (which means beauty products you swallow rather than apply to your skin) particularly those that are collagen or hyaluronic acid based. We were very interested to hear that the award-winning British brand Absolute Collagen had launched the first-ever men’s ingestible beauty supplement, their Protein Rich Marine Collagen Supplement. We applaud this brand for recognising the need for specific male skincare supplements.

The Protein Rich Marine Collagen has numerous benefits. Fish collagen has superior bioavailability, which means it’s quickly absorbed into the body when digested. Once in the bloodstream, it starts working its magic. The Absolute Collagen supplement encourages the fibroblasts responsible for collagen reproduction to kick-start and therefore helps to fight signs of ageing.

One sachet of 10ml makes a daily dose of the marine collagen. The Supplement is as ‘absolute’ as possible, containing vitamin C for absorption and lemon and sucralose for taste. You can take the marine collagen direct from the sachet or mix it with hot and cold drinks or even add it to yoghurt – the possibilities are endless. We only had a two week supply, and I would like to add that probably I need a lot longer time than just a few weeks, to see significant results. However, I have to say that my joints felt more fluid and my fine lines did start to look slightly more plumped-out. The supplement does actually boast that the skin will look smoother, plumper and more hydrated, so perhaps this is just the start. They also state that the collagen benefits nails, joints, blood vessels, ligaments and tendons as well. I'm very tempted to keep going and order more! You too can order a 14-day supply of the Protein Rich Marine Collagen Supplement for Men here for £29.99.

As we make our way further into 2018, it’s easy to forget those resolutions we made back in January. No matter what your goal for the year is, it’s never too late to add a health kick to your list, as it’s usually around this time of year when we need to give our body that little boost from Mother Nature. At The Amazing Blog, our secret to maintaining our health and keeping our energy levels up is the Drasanvi Chia Seeds and the chocolate drink Collmar-CaoDrasanvi is a Spanish brand that has been producing high-quality food supplements for over 20 years and we already know we adore their Collmar Marine Collagen line, so we can say with certainty it's a brand we trust. Their teams are made up of biologists, chemists and nutritionists constantly researching to improve the formulas of their products or to find new ways of extracting natural active ingredients from plants, fruits and minerals.

Collmar-Cao is a food supplement made with pure cacao. This drink powder is enriched with vitamins C, B2, B6, B12 as well as magnesium, calcium, iron and marine collagen. Therefore it's not just super yummy but also benefits your whole body and well-being. The Collmar-Cao is also packed with proteins and minerals, which will boost your metabolism and combat fatigue. The chocolatey flavour makes it an ideal addition to your breakfast; just add to your milk of choice, hot or cold, stir, and enjoy. 

The Chia Seeds are a must have superfood for anyone looking for a quick and easy way to get in some much needed nutrients. Chia Seeds are naturally packed with vitamins, Omega 3, 6, 9 and minerals including iron and magnesium. In addition to being a great source of fibre and protein, these seeds have a delightfully subtle nutty flavour that goes well with a wide range of recipes. Simply add them to your daily oatmeal, smoothie, and even juices or soak them and watch as they expand into a gel that is perfect for baking. The seeds are free from sugar, preservatives and colouring and have earned their superfood title for a reason.

We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day and getting it in is key to leading a healthy lifestyle, which is why we adore how easy both of these supplements make it for us to achieve our goals. You can purchase the Chia Seeds here for £9.95 and the Collmar-Cao here for £14.95.




Pevonia’s EyeRenew™ Conceal & De-Age Treatment


Here at The Amazing Blog are always on the go and we don’t plan on slowing down anytime soon! Too much screen work and late nights have begun to take a toll on the delicate skin around our eyes and we're showing signs of stress, sleep-deprivation and the dreaded ageing. So you can imagine how happy we were to receive the new EyeRenew™  Conceal & De-Age Treatment from our trusted friends at Pevonia to hopefully come and save our day.

As mentioned, late nights and long days with our eyes glued to our screens have started to have an effect on how we look and feel. We all struggle with dark circles, puffiness, wrinkles and how to conceal and refresh our tired eyes. This is why we loved the EyeRenew™ Conceal & De-Age Treatment;  it's one easy-to-use formula that conceals and de-puffs, thanks to an oil-free mineral tint,  while also smoothing any fine lines or wrinkles. We have found this to be an invaluable repairing eye contour treatment that gives a flawless finish. We also noticed that it has some great light reflective qualities, that helped to give a dewy and rested appearance to the eye area. The slim tube fits into a pocket to take on-the-go and reapply taking you through from day to night.

We've always been fans of Pevonia’s approach to skincare, where science meets nature. So it's good to know contained in this product is a natural blend of enriched plankton extract sourced from Tenerife, marine collagen and hyaluronic acid, all to revive and instantly refresh for a youthful glow. The EyeRenew™ Conceal & De-Age Treatment is free from the ingredients we don’t want near our eyes like mineral oil, lanolin, parabens, alcohol and artificial fragrances and colours. Additionally, Pevonia does not test on animals and each treatment comes in fully recyclable and biodegradable packaging. The EyeRenew™ Conceal & De-Age Treatment is available here for £57 and you'll receive a free gift with every order.

Golden Greens Expert Collagen Complex

The fear of ageing has women of all ages stressing about the way their skin looks. It’s hard not to feel under pressure when all media portrays is perfect skin. The good news is that you’re not alone. We at The Amazing Blog can completely relate. If you’re afraid of or want to get rid of ageing signs, Golden Greens Expert Collagen Complex will seriously be your new best friend.

As we age, the collagen and hyaluronic acid naturally produced in our bodies, which are essential in maintaining the elasticity and overall smoothness of the skin, start to decrease. Once we get to our fabulous thirties, our skin starts to lose 1-2% of collagen a year, resulting in visible wrinkles and fine lines. To help boost collagen and hyaluronic acid levels, Golden Greens Expert has expertly crafted an organic formula that will naturally give your body back the key nutrients it craves in order to keep your skin looking and feeling as beautiful and youthful on the outside as you feel on the inside. 

The Collagen Complex does not contain any artificial additives, preservatives, or sweeteners and is made up of sustainably sourced Naticol hydrolysed marine collagen and high strength hyaluronic acid. This is all mixed together with a blend of skin-loving ingredients like organic lucuma (a nutrient-rich superfood that makes it naturally sweet), blueberry and acerola powders. Not only does it combine plenty of antioxidants, but it also packs in organic Vitamin C, which aids normal skin functions and collagen development. In other words, your skin will love you for it.

It’s very straightforward to use and easy to take on the go. Just add about two teaspoons to your water, fruit juice, or even smoothies, and mix well. Added bonus? It’s Non-GMO, gluten, lactose, and soy free. Prevention is the best way to keep wrinkles at bay, while maintaining a youthful and glowing skin, so start sipping! The Golden Greens Expert Collagen Complex is available here for £17.99.
