Review: Meiji Amino Collagen Profec

Meiji Amino Collagen Profec (200g)
This week review is on Meiji Amino Collagen Profec. This was received from Meiji Amino Collagen Seminar October last year. :)

Amino Collagen Profec is stated to be good for intestine as well as for younger looking skin. Having finished one full tin of Meiji Amino Collagen Profec, I did not really see much effect the collagen have on me. I always have regular bowel movement, so this collagen really does not have much effect to my bowel movement. Also I can't see any improvement to my skin too. Its not cheap either, therefore I will need to reconsider if I will continue to consume it.

My Review
This was received from Meiji Amino Collagen Seminar October last year. :)

It came in a nice tin with a spoon and nice cover for easy opening and storing. Giving the spoon is a good choice as I just have to use the spoon and every consumption I can ensure its equal amount. :)

Tin of Amino Collagen Profec.
Easy to open tin.
Nice cover to open and store the collagen.
The collagen is in powder form. The powder itself is odorless. However after dissolving it in the beverage, it have a fishy smell. 

I will dissolve one spoonful of collagen into my beverage. But I notice that it is very difficult to completely dissolve the collagen in the beverage, especially cold beverage. I stir constantly for almost 1mins for it to dissolve in the beverage. And sometimes after a long long time of stirring, I can still see little powder in the beverage. :(

One spoonful of collagen powder.
I wanted to know if the collagen is tasteless. Therefore to begin with, I just mix the collagen in plain water. It turns out that the water turns cloudy in color and it not only have a fishy smell, it taste horrible too. Therefore conclusion is that I must mix it in other drinks. Otherwise its very difficult to drink. :(
The cup of plain water on the left (cloudy in color) is mixed with collagen.
The cup o
f plain water on the right is not mixed with collagen.

Also after dissolving in my beverage like ribena, carrot juice, lemon tea, milo and etc, I felt that it does affect the taste of my drink. :(
Mixed in Ribena.
Mixed in Lemon Tea.
Mixed in carrot juice.
I drink it before going to bed. After one week, I still cannot see any effect on me. I thought maybe I should at least finish one tin. But after finishing the whole tin, I still did not see any effect on me. :(
