Belo Strawberry Collagen Smoothie Review and Recipe
Years ago my doctor told me to take collagen supplements for my ligaments and joints. He said it’ll be good for my skin too but I didn’t really believe him until after I saw a big difference on my skin from taking collagen for only a few days. My skin glowed and it looked healthier not just on my face but on the rest of my body as well. Since then I decided to take collagen supplements regularly for my health and as a part of my skincare routine.
I’m also taking it for it’s long term benefits. Collagen in our skin is responsible for keeping it young and firm. It’s found abundantly in the dermis when we were babies and kids but it lessens as we age and as our skin gets exposed to pollution, the sun, smoke, etc…. I read on Sample Room that as babies we have 100% collagen, at 20s we have 20% less collagen, at 40s we have 40% less collagen, and at 50s we have 50% less collagen. Unfortunately, collagen is not found in our regular diet. The only way to increase collagen in our body is by supplementation. The best supplement is marine collagen like Belo collagen powder that has 5000 mg of premium collagen per sachet that replenishes lost collagen as you age. It’s a good anti-aging product that decreases fine lines, wrinkles, and restores skin elasticity and suppleness.
I recently got a hold of a free sample of their new flavor – Belo Collagen Strawberry Smoothie – through Sample Room Philippines. Sample Room is a free product sampling website that lets you try products first before you buy to avoid the risk of buying products that don’t work for you. I’ll leave their link below so you can check it out as well.
HEALTHY BANANA STRAWBERRY CHIA COLLAGEN SMOOTHIE
Ingredients and recipe.
Here’s a simple recipe of how I take Belo’s collagen powder. It’s quick and easy to do. You just need to slice 1 or 1 1/2 frozen bananas, 200ml of almond milk, 1 tablespoon of chia seeds, one sachet of Belo Collagen Strawberry Smoothie, and a teaspoon of honey (optional if you like your drink sweeter). Mix them together in a blender and it’s good to go! I like to put the chia seeds last after using the blender ‘cos it’s easier to clean afterwards.
I take smoothies very often in the morning in different flavors but I’ve never taken them with a flavored collagen powder before. I was pleasantly surprised at how good it tasted. It reminds me of a strawberry shortcake. You can take one to two sachets of Belo Collagen Strawberry Smoothie per day. I already regularly take collagen, my skin usually appears dull if I skip taking it for a few days. I’m happy to see that my skin maintained its youthful glow since I started using Belo’s new strawberry flavored collagen. I’d like to try their melon flavor sometime and hopefully they can also come up with a chocolate flavored collagen too someday.
