Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and makes up about 70% of the protein in our skin. But as we age, our body starts to gradually produce less collagen, causing our skin to lose its firmness, therefore forming fine lines and wrinkles. When deciding on a collagen supplement, one must keep in mind that it should offer convenience (you need to take it consistently to see results), nutrition (no added junk), as well as science (research to prove it works and offers the correct amount).
In an ideal world, we would all love to make a fresh smoothie every morning and add in our daily serving of collagen. The reality is that this is generally short lived, and we eventually look for on-the-go convenience. Saving you time (and washing numerous dishes), our FUTURELIFE® BEAUTI FOOD™ range offers two convenient product formats. BEAUTI FOOD™ Nutritional Shake is pre portioned in a 55g sachet offering you the convenience to grab it on-the-go and just add water for a quick shake. BEAUTI FOOD™ Protein Bar is a 40g bar that you can keep on hand (or in the car for those days you’re stuck in traffic) for an any time convenient snack.
FUTURELIFE® BEAUTI FOOD™ Nutritional Shake is a scientifically formulated combination of 5g hydrolyzed collagen peptides in a shake that is:

We made sure that the collagen we use in FUTURELIFE® BEAUTI FOOD™ has been scientifically researched and it is clinically proven to reduce wrinkles in 28 days with consistent use1. Yes, you read right! Proksch et al. conducted a study evaluating these specific collagen peptides that we added to BEAUTI FOOD™. They found that taking an effective dose of 2.5g of these specific collagen peptides per day for 28 days showed a statistically significant reduction in eye wrinkle volume of 7.2% compared to the placebo group. With extended supplementation wrinkle volume was reduced by 20.1% after 8 weeks with a maximum reduction of 49.9%. So, don’t stop using BEAUTI FOOD™ after the 28 days and continue use for optimal results. Studies have also shown an improvement in skin elasticity and hydration2. In addition to this, BEAUTI FOOD™ Nutritional Shake is high in 6 vitamins and minerals that contribute to the maintenance of normal skin and 3 vitamins and minerals that contribute to the maintenance of normal hair and nails.
