Review on Meiji Amino Collagen

Hi Everyone,

Here's another review i would love to share. I have been consuming the Amino Collagen for the past one month. Thanks to the giveaway! And, I am so going to tell i am really so in love with it! Why?

It is the Number 1 seller for an amazing 7 consecutive years in Japan and the best portable collagen beauty supplement sold in Japan. It is also a Best Seller in Singapore! Whereby, it is  awarded with
awards in Watson for being Best selling for Oral Skincare (Collagen Powder) and in Guardian Category winner for Oral Beauty Supplement during 2012.

I have tried a few Collagen brands like Fancl, DHC collagen pills, but this is the first time i tried having them in powder form. At first, i am really afraid that there might be a strong scent, as quite a few of my friends said that theres a strong odour that cant be gotten rid even when they added a strong scented drink with it like fruit juice.

Anyway, i would share my experience with Meiji Collagen from here. So, this is the product in detail.

Low-weight molecules which make it so fine and soluble

It just starts with one spoon for beauty and brighter skin to be revealed. 5000mg of Collagen is sufficient per day!
1.Amino Collagen is made from extremely pure and highly absorbable fish collagen peptide.
That's why there's 5000 mg which equals to one spoonful.

2. It contains Arginine (amino acid) which is a type of amino acid that is essential for maintaining healthy skin.
3. Vitamin C which is a essential vitamin that supports collagen.

4. Glucosamine, a raw material for hyaluronic acid, which helps maintain the skin's moisture.
5. I find that it dissolves so quickly into any drinks that i add in. I usually try it with my favourite   fruit juice. For instance, Sunkist Orange Juice or Fruit Tree Mixed Vegetable Juice.

6. I am amazed that it does not affect the taste of drink, as it is a improved formula with a less odour formula. So fret not that it will taste horrid, it does not.

7. I find that skin is brighter, after a few weeks of continous consumption.

All in all, i find that by incorporating into my daily meal, it makes my daily intake of collagen that easy! In additon, i find that with periods like i am busy mugging for exams, acne seems to be curb at the bay, not so much that i cannnot handle! I am really loving it.

Furthermore, i found that they have a improved formula the one in gold bottle! If  im given a chance to be sponspored by Meiji, i would definitely love love love to. And, it would be like a dream come true, just like how the celebrities get sponsored to try new products. Oh gosh.... Let's dream on! So, what next on my getting list, would definitely be the Premium Collagen Version, as there is additional ingredient like hyaluronic acid, which is an agent which is so popular for hydrating the skin!

Anyway, i cant wait to try the Premium version after this finishes! :) Any readers out there, who tried on this product and love to share with me how it works on you? Feel free to share with me your thoughts as I would really love to hear from you guys!

Much Love,

does this product helps to reduce freckle?

Hi Hui Ning, thanks for reading my blog. Im sorry i afraid i cannot comment much if it helps. I dont think it will help, but it does help to brighten and strengthen elasticity on skin. If you want to target freckles, i think you can get whitening essence or serums that contains arbutin or any whitening agents. It surely would help. Put on more facial mask and regular sunblock! Im sure it will lighten in no time! Good luck!

Is it ok for a 17 yr old to drink this?

Jasmine Quek said...

@Jane! Hi there its never too late to start a collagen routine. We age around the age of 25. Level of collagen decreases subsquently, so at 17 is a perfect age to start. :) hope this helps!

Hi I pls. help I am a bit confuse on whether to choose meiji or DHC, which one is better?

Patricia Mae Villa said...

Hi which do you think is better, meiji or DHC?

Jasmine Quek said...

Hi Patricia! thanks for reading! If youre looking for a supplement brand for collagen powder, I would suggest go for Meiji, as they are the one that specializes on supplement. However, if youre looking for a skincare brand which promises simplicity, go for DHC. Hope this helps!

About a third of the protein content in your body is made up of collagen, which is found in the bones, muscles, and tissues of the organs.

hi jasmine. do you know if it's still safe to consume for pregnant woman?

Hi Jasmine,

What the difference between Amino Collagen (pink can) and Amino Collagen Premium (gold can)
Should this product be taken together with vitamin C? if so which one would you suggest?

Jasmine Quek said...

Hi There,

Amino Collagen (pink can)
A single spoonful (about 7 g) contains 5,000 mg of low-molecular fish collagen, 450 mg of arginine amino acid (a beauty factor), 60 mg of glucosamine, and 50 mg of vitamin C. A neutral flavor and fast-dissolving powder formula means it can be served hot or cold for enjoyment with any food or drink. Enjoy it in coffee, juice, yogurt, or any of your favorite dishes.

Gold Can - There's additional premium ingredient like ceramide.
To meet the needs of those who wish to attain evolving beauty, this powder targets new heights in beauty. With 5,000 mg of low-molecular fish collagen, a daily dose of Amino Collagen also contains 1,200 µg of ceramide (a notable beauty ingredient), 20 mg of hyaluronic acid, and coenzyme Q10 (a source of vitality, beauty and youthfulness). Each dose of powder also contains 450 mg of arginine, an amino acid (containing an Amino Collagen building block); 60 mg of glucosamine; and 50 mg of vitamin C. Amino Collagen comes in an easy-to-drink, fast-dissolving powder formula. Try it daily with your favorite foods and drinks to give your skin a refined glow.

Works best to have it both consume together with VIT C. It help to boost the function and huge amounts of Vitamin C are required for collagen to form. And our bodies do not produce Vitamin C on their own. So its best to have it both consume. You can replace Vit C tablet in terms of orange juice instead. Hope this helps!
