Youth Dew

By Joana Sousa Lara

We know you’ve heard stories…usually, we don’t kiss and tell, but it’s time to let Ponce de Léon know that we’ve found The Fountain of Youth first. Find out more in Youth Dew.

Once upon a time, there was a Spanish explorer, Juan Ponce de Léon, who travelled to St. Augustine, Florida, to find what he believed was a fountain of youth. By drinking from it he thought he would stay eternally young.

During his golden years, American author Mark Twain remarked, “life would be infinitely happier if we could only be born at the age of 80 and gradually approach the age of 18.”

Twain’s statement was just one of many concerns about ageing that have been documented, for as long as humans have feared the downside of living a long life. The ancient Greek poet Homer described old age as “loathsome”, and William Shakespeare referred to it as “hideous winter.” Oscar Wilde’s character Dorian Gray even preserved his youth by ageing only in a painting, to ghastly effect.

It’s easy to understand why there have always been hopes that something would be invented soon. Given that we are living in an era where the sole focus is on inner and outer body responsibility, we think it’s time to make the myth a reality.

When it comes to external and internal care, there’s one prominent protein that truly helps. No, it’s not Keratin. We’ll give you a clue; it does wonders for your skin.

This protein is also responsible for being the main component of the body’s connective tissues like tendons, ligaments and muscles. Not sure what we are talking about yet? The answer is none other than Collagen.

In recent years, Collagen supplements have become quite popular. These peptides have shown a significant reduction in signs of ageing, wrinkles and dryness of the skin. By taking these supplements, your body is also producing other proteins that help structure the skin, such as Elastin and Fibrillin.

Ingesting foods that contain gelatin (a protein substance derived from Collagen) – bone broth, citrus fruits, chicken and soy – is considered to be beneficial for gut, heart and brain health; hair and nail strength; as well as preventing diseases like osteoporosis, osteoarthritis and sarcopenia.

Don’t worry, we’ve got your back, heart and skin covered (literally). Here are two simple products that will make you feel like you have the fountain of youth in the palm of your hands.

Premium Liquid Marine Collagen Drink Supplement by Revive Collagen

Revive Collagen is a game-changing skincare brand that believes younger-looking skin begins within. The uniquely formulated collagen-based skincare brand has been in development for two years and delivers authentic results. 

This product is a daily liquid marine collagen supplement that comes in a convenient single-serve sachet, making it easy to drink on the go, no matter where you are. It can be taken at any time of day to fit your schedule, although experts recommend drinking it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach for best results.

Each Revive Collagen sachet contains an impressive 8,500mg of high-quality marine Collagen. For reference, you need to ingest at least 6,000mg of collagen peptides daily to trigger fibroblast (the cells responsible for collagen production) activity in the dermis.

DNA Protection and Cellular Health Regenerate Capsules by Rejuvenated

This potent supplement is intended to support normal DNA synthesis while also aiding in the assurance of DNA from oxidative stress and cell division from within. 

With a synergistic blend of eight plant-based molecules, zinc, and vitamin B2, these revolutionary capsules pack a powerful punch. The active ingredient, nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN), works to increase the activity of a key enzyme in cells throughout the body.

Now we get why Ponce de Léon spent so much time looking for this youth dew, but at least it is a lot easier to get to now.
