There are many things I like about ageing. The wisdom that comes with life experience, the ability to say no to things I don’t want to do, and knowing my body has served me well throughout life. There are only a few things I don’t like about ageing – I am no longer as fast and agile as I once was, and my skin is drier and lacking in the firmness it once had.
The latter is down to the time I spent in the sun as a child, and the natural loss of collagen that occurs with age. While I now wear sunscreen whenever I am out, I am always on the look out for ways to supplement my skin’s own collagen production, and I’ve just found a sustainably sourced one. The new Isagenix Sustainably Sourced Marine Collagen Elixir (pictured) provides 5 grams of marine-sourced collagen peptides per serve, and is infused with superplants, vitamin C, biotin, and zinc. The collagen shot contains key botanicals for synergistic skin effects, Nutri Tech for greater nutrient absorption, and wild Atlantic cod, sourced from Scandinavia, that is rich in nutritional value. If you prefer a non-marine collagen, Isagenix also have an Australian made Collagen Bone Broth, made with bone broth from cows and pink Himalayan rock salt. With each sachet containing 8 grams of protein, 6.5 grams of collagen peptides, hydroxyproline, glycine, and proline along with vitamin C, the broth is ideal for adding to recipes for extra flavour, or as a base for creating a soup. Isagenix Collagen Elixir Superfruit Flavour 10 x 50ml RRP $66.66, Isagenix Bone Broth 15 packs x 15g RRP $58.66. Available in Chicken and Herb or vegetable flavours (note, vegetable flavour, not vegetarian). Both the Collagen Elixir and Bone Broth are available with a Preferred Customer subscription offer on the website, where you can save 25%. Note, these are not vegetarian or vegan collagen sources.
