Collagen supplementation- Is it the new fountain of youth? | Go Shine Botanical Beverage Review

Being a lady, I am conscious about my appearance and how fast wrinkles and crow feet have become part of my face in the past decade. Half of my hair thickness is gone due to hormonal changes after delivering my boys. How I miss my carefree student face with no blemish and supple skin. Besides investing in beauty products, what about collagen supplementation? Is it the panacea?


Collagen is a very important structure-- if you like, like a scaffold for the body. It makes up 75% of the dry weight of our skin which allows the skin to look plump and radiant. Collagen is also rich in amino acids which is needed for tendon, bone, joint, nail and hair health. Consuming collagen really brings beauty inside out as proven by a few recent research in 2014 and 2019.

I do believe that proper collagen supplementation can delay signs of ageing. This is because our body break down collagen faster than producing it as we age. Injecting collagen under the skin does not last long, can be painful and difficult to absorb and may cause allergic reactions. Consuming collagen, on the other hand, has very few side effects. Not only is it great to improve skin condition, collagen supplementation has also shown promising results in accelerating wound healing, improving lean mass and alleviating joint pain.

The quality of the supplement is of utmost importance. Go Shine by Max Health Malaysia is one of the trusted collagen beverage brand in the market. It is formulated in Japan and Switzerland. Always look out for HACCP, GMP and MESTi approved products to ensure it does not contain any traces of heavy metal. Certified by the Ministry of Health Malaysia,  Go Shine Botanical Beverage is definitely safe for consumption in healthy individuals. To my muslim friends, Go Shine is a halal product.

The other active ingredients include:


Rice Ceramide- whitens, hydrate and moisturise skin
Sakura- rich in antioxidant/anti-ageing, promotes collagen production
Vitamin C-boost collagen production, hasten healthy skin cell turnover
White Cucurmin- potent anti-oxidant, UV protection, soothes inflamed skin
Melon Extract- rich in Super Oxide Dismutase (SOD) a poweful antioxidant, stress reliever
L-cysteine- Whitens skin by enhancing the production of glutathione, anti-oxidant
Vitamin E- Strong antioxidant, absorbs harmful UVB
Apple Stem Cell- maintain longevity of skin stem cells

What does Dr Yingzangel think?


Any healthy person with no chronic illness such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart/kidney/liver failure may try collagen supplement with no ill effect. Avoid if you are expecting or lactating as well because no research has been done in this group of ladies as it is unethical to put both mothers and babies at risk. I have personally experienced the difference in collagen supplementation and will continue to consume high quality collagen such as Go Shine.
