Generation 3 Colla by Kitsui

Being a doctor, many often ask me do we need supplements and what are safe? I do not put a total ban on supplements but these are the certain pointers to follow-

- Make sure the product is from reputable source using only the highest quality ingredients with the necessary certifications

- Avoid generally if you are pregnant or breastfeeding

- Avoid if you have any chronic medical conditions especially kidney and liver problems

- Make sure it doesn't contain steroid

- Scrutinize the list of ingredients. Use reliable sources such as webMD to look for potential side effects.

I don't deny certain supplements can improve well being. Collagen beverages is one of them. Recently I have been given the opportunity to try Generation 3 Colla by Kitsui.

Some background about Kitsui. Being the Winner of the Asia Pacific Super Health Brand, it boasts products that are made from natural ingredients to improve health and well being. All the products are manufactured with high quality products conforming to standards of Good Manufacturing Practice.

Me being myself, time to go through the main ingredients!

Lemon- rich in vitamin C, antioxidant and  has a great flavour

Collagen- the building block for good skin. It makes the skin firm and youthful.

Astaxanthin- a type of carotenoid found in algae and seafood. A great antioxidant.

Vitamin C-essential for skin repair and healing.

Calcium- for great bone and nail health

Omega 3- for a healthy heart and reduces bad cholesterol levels.

Kitsui claims the following benefits from drinking Generation 3 Colla--

-Lightens stretch mark and wrinkles
-Relieves oily skin
-Reduces appearance of scar including acne scar
-Moisturises the skin
-Slows the ageing process
-Helps with uneven skin tone
-Maintains healthy nails and hair

These are the recommendations/general tips when consuming Generation 3 Colla--

- Avoid milk, fried food and soy sauce for those with acne

- Avoid excessive caffeine which can accelerate the ageing process

- Stop consuming Colla during menstruation as absorption may be impaired

- To space out the timing of consumption at least 5 hours from other prescription drugs

- Suitable for expecting mothers with more than 4 months pregnant or breastfeeding mothers

-  Please do not consume if slimming/detox products if you are pregnant or breastfeeding

-  Drink 2-3 litres of water a day for best results

-  This collagen drink can be made with water which is warm/room temperature/ chilled. But make sure the powder dissolved fully.

-  It can be consumed after breakfast or before sleep (better before sleep for optimal absorption)

-  Always consult your healthcare professionals before consumption especially if you have other medical conditions.

I find these advices are fairly practical and logical. This further shows that Kitsui is not just chasing for sales. But they are genuinely interested in the well-being of their clients.

This short video shows how to make a great serving of Generation 3 Colla. I prefer the drink chilled because it makes the sweetness more harmonious.

Just to note that those who are allergic to seafood or with ezcema/allergic rhinitis are not recommended to try this collagen drink as it's based on marine collagen.

Kitsui Generation 3 Colla can be found at your local Watson's store and also online Watson's store.
