Now that I’m in my 30s, it’s important for me to start taking care of my health. Yes, 31 is still young but I’ve noticed changes with my body already. In my teen years and twenties, I could go on a night out and easily attend to things in the morning. In my college years, I would go to a club and go straight to class. Now, I get grumpy and can’t function if I get less than six hours of sleep. Sometimes I need an entire day to recuperate if I am too tired or drunk from the night before.
Aging is tough but it doesn’t need to be. There are tons of potions, lotions, and concoctions to keep us healthy and potentially slow down the signs of aging. One of the most popular is collagen. It is the most abundant protein in our body and works with another protein called elastin to keep our skin elastic. Unfortunately, we lose about one percent of collagen each year as early as our twenties, which means drier skin.
Given that logic, it makes sense that ingesting collagen from outside sources can help solve this problem. According to the New York Times, some studies have shown that taking collagen supplements can help with skin elasticity, signs of aging, and stronger bones.
I’m currently trying the 4Life Transfer Factor Collagen, which provides total body wellness through hydrolyzed collagen, antioxidant protection, and the patented 4Life Transfer Factor. It’s said to improve skin moisture, tone, and elasticity, so you can slow down the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. According to the brand, studies have shown improvements for skin, nails, and hair in just eight weeks. It’s also dermatologist-tested!
This product is from 4Life, a multinational company that offers supplements to support the immune system, body transformation, and general wellness. They’ve been in the Philippines for 14 years to help Filipinos achieve a healthy lifestyle and create opportunities for them as business partners.
This product contains hydrolyzed collagen, which breaks peptides into smaller units that are easier for our body to use. This simply means that it is more easily absorbed by our bodies. 4Life Transfer Factor Collagen contains 5,000 mg of hydrolyzed collagen per packet.
It is also good for the immune system. The 4Life Transfer Factor can boost, educate, and balance the immune system. Recent independent laboratory studies show that core 4Life Transfer Factor products bolster Natural Killer (NK) cell activity in the presence of a health threat. In turn, this gives you much-needed immune support. It contains Vitamin C and E for additional antioxidant support.
4Life Transfer Factor Collagen comes in a powdered pack that is versatile enough to be mixed with any drink. It has a mild vanilla peppermint flavor that is almost undetectable.
Now, the most important question is: is it effective? Personally, I believe that things like supplements and skincare will show its effects in the long run. I’ve been taking 4Life Transfer Factor Collagen for almost a month now and I can’t quite tell for sure if it’s effective. But a Bumble match couldn’t believe I’m 31, and a friend told me I’m blooming.
Even if I believe that supplements take a while to show its effects, I think it is worth the commitment. As they say, prevention is better than cure so take care of yourself and build the future you want today. The 4Life Transfer Factor Collagen is a great start.
