The debate about the effectiveness of collagen based ‘anti-ageing’ drinks, rages on. One side argues that collagen cannot be absorbed into the bloodstream because stomach enzymes break down the collagen to such an extent that it changes its molecular structure.
Then there are claims that certain collagen supplements do work because they have super-bioavailability (meaning how effectively the body absorbs nutrients and can enter the body). Once such product is a marine extract collagen drink called Collagen Shots by a company called Rejuvenated.
Collagen type I is the major protein found in connective tissues and skin, it plays an essential role in maintaining skin tone, suppleness & elasticity. After the age of 25 collagen synthesis reduces at a rate of 1.5% a year and the age of 45 collagen levels can have fallen by as much as 30%. The visible effects of this process are the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines & dry skin.
Collagen Shots combines powerful ingredients including 100 per cent ethically sourced natural marine collagen found in fish and acai berry superfood that works synergistically to help reduce premature facial ageing.
Rejuvenated Collagen Drink is the only collagen drink with 10,000 mgs of marine extract collagen per shot (that’s equal to between 20 to 30 typical collagen tablets a day!). Marine collagen is superior to other types of collagen as it has super-bioavailability meaning that it can be easily absorbed by our bodies.

HOW TO USE
- Daily, ideally half an hour before going to sleep at night, this is when cells are renewing.
- Or, on an empty stomach either first thing in the morning, or before a meal.
- Put one scoop (included in the pouch) in a glass and fill with 200 – 250ml of water.
- Whisk with a fork, allow a minute for collagen to dissolve – whisk again and drink.
Do not add the powder to water, as it will ‘lump up’ and be difficult to dissolve. Powder first, then water. The fine powder dissolves completely – it’s just like drinking a glass of mildly fruity water.
This is the crux really. You want to see tangible results and you will. For me, the first sign that ‘something’ was happening was the condition of my nails, longer and stronger after two weeks.
The second sign – and I’ve read a lot Collagen Shots reviewers who claim the same thing, was that the skin on dry areas ie heels, elbows, knees, etc became softer and smoother. Heels are particularly prone to dryness during the summer months, but I found I had to do a lot less work to keep them sandal pretty.
Finally, and this was when the 30 day trial was coming to an end, the areas on my (rosacea prone) cheeks calmed down, became less ‘angry’ and felt softer to the touch.
THIS is why these drinks are so popular, people are seeing real skin changes. For all the naysayers who claim these supplements can’t possibly work, why then, is there a noticeable difference after taking them?
I’m a huge fan of collagen drinks, although ready-made ones tend to either too peppery or too sweet for my palette – this is just a glass of water.
Think of Collagen Shots as another weapon in the war against ageing. We work on the outside with creams, face masks and gadgets, but this is working from the inside out. Anti-ageing isn’t about looking 20 years younger, but about looking the best you possibly can, right now. Frozen in time perhaps, but not frozen in face.
