What is collagen anyway and why do we need it? Collagen is actually a natural protein that makes up a third of all protein content in our bodies. Besides upholding the elasticity of our skin, collagen also serves as building blocks for our muscles, bones, ligaments and tendons. Collagen is present in our connective tissues and can even be found in our hair, nails and corneas. Since our bodies start to lose collagen and skin elasticity as we age, taking collagen supplements can prove beneficial for our overall health and wellbeing. In addition to strengthening your nails and hair follicles, daily intake of collagen can also boost the collagen and hydration levels in your skin. Enter Astalift Pure Collagen Drink and Astalift Drink Whiteshield – collagen boosters to nourish your skin from the inside out from dawn to dusk!

Superhero ingredients that boost your skin’s collagen production
Before we take a closer look at Astalift’s glow-giving supplements, here’s a peek at the superhero ingredients they use in their energizing collagen drinks.
A collagen drink would not be complete without actual collagen in it right? To ensure that the body is able to effectively absorb collagen, Astalift incorporates low molecular pure collagen in the formulation of their collagen drinks. Consuming pure collagen has been shown to be efficacious in improving one’s overall skin health. In fact, a recent medical study in the Skin Pharmacology and Physiology journal revealed that several women have higher levels of skin hydration and elasticity after taking collagen supplements for 2 months. Also, this was in comparison to women who only took placebo supplements within the same time frame. Hence, consuming hydrolyzed pure collagen on a daily basis is certainly advantageous in the long run.
Next, we have ornithine which is a non-protein amino acid that is also naturally present in the body. Athletes normally take ornithine orally to improve their overall athletic performance and accelerate wound healing. In addition to speeding up the wound-healing process, consuming ornithine can also help to improve one’s quality of sleep. Usually, you can find ornithine present in freshwater clams, fish and even cheese. In this case, Astalift derives their ornithine from freshwater clams. This is because freshwater claims contain a higher potency of ornithine than other ornithine food sources.
Who hasn’t heard of Vitamin C’s amazing anti-inflammatory properties? Excellent as a nutritional supplement, Vitamin C is rich in antioxidants and is usually prescribed by dermatologists to lower the risk of inflammatory skin conditions like acne and eczema. Besides alleviating skin inflammation, Vitamin C also helps to fortify your immune system and protect your body against colds and bacterial infections. Moreover, this superhero ingredient also aids in the synthesis of collagen and the acceleration of wound healing.
Now, ceramides are lipids (fatty acids) that are present in high doses in the surface layers of the skin. In fact, they make up 50% of the outer layers of our epidermis and are essential for optimal barrier function. When our skin’s barrier is impaired, it is more susceptible to bacterial infections and moisture loss. Hence, incorporating ceramides in supplement form can help a great deal in supporting the natural ceramide structures of your skin. On top of fortifying your skin’s barrier, ceramide supplements also help your skin to retain moisture better and improve overall skin hydration.
Last but not least, we have astaxanthin which is an incredibly powerful antioxidant. In fact, studies show that it contains 6,000 times more antioxidants than Vitamin C and is exceptional at bolstering the body’s immune system. Normally, you can find astaxanthin in algae as well as seafood like salmon, krill, crayfish and shrimp. Astaxanthin is actually the red pigment that you find in seafood and red algae, giving these organisms their signature reddish hue. Additionally, astaxanthin is 1,000 times more powerful than CoQ10 in delivering anti-ageing benefits to your skin. Because of their low molecular structure, our bodies are able to absorb astaxanthin in nano form more effectively.
The beauty benefits of Astalift pure collagen drinks
Besides stimulating collagen synthesis, taking collagen drinks regularly can help to boost your body’s immune system and improve the elasticity of your skin. In addition to that, it strengthens your skin’s barrier function and makes it more effective at combatting free radicals and environmental aggressors. Furthermore, you may also notice that your nails are stronger and your hair is less prone to breakage and fallout. Even your skin will begin to look more radiant!
When can I start seeing results?
Although results may vary depending on each individual’s age, diet and biological reactions, most users can start to see an improvement in their skin’s appearance within 4 to 8 weeks.
