Something New: Belo Collagen Drink

Everyone who lives in the Philippines (or even outside of the country) probably heard about Belo!  I mean who doesn't?  Belo prettified so many celebrities at times I wonder, if I'll end up going through those non-invasive/invasive treatments in the future.  (That's a whole different topic so I'm not going there!)

When Belo came up with products, I got so excited because these are the products you can easily find in the market and they are inexpensive!  One Belo product that I tried, tested and really love is the Belo SunExpert!  I used these sun protection product during our SampleRoom #SplashofSummer beach trip and mind you, I got home looking like I never left home!  *lol*

Then, I heard Belo came up with more products ready to touch every single beauty-enthusiast.  This time,the Belo Nutra products.

Dr. Vicki Belo has created the Belo Nutraceuticals: Glutathione + Collagen, a first in a line of dietary supplements that aims to beautify from within.  These pills provide whitening plus anti-ageing in one capsule. 

Of course I didn't drink any of these when these were launched because I was breastfeeding Baby AMW at that time and I just want to be safe so I've given mine away to my mom-in-law and so far, she finished all 30 capsules and told me she didn't feel any side effects.  There wasn't any "obvious results" because she just finished 30 capsules and didn't go for more.

Box of 10 capsules  Php480.00/ 30s bottle Php1,440.00/60s bottle  P2,700.00
Just when I thought I've seen enough, Belo came up with another technology, this time a Collagen drink!  I've seen a lot of Collagen Drinks years ago when I used to work in China!  I hop on a ferry to visit Hong Kong once a week and Watsons Hongkong have aisles after aisles dedicated for "Beauty Drinks".  Beauty drinks are wild in the Chinese market (I used to think they don't need it!), but I guess after years of existence, they must really work because I see ladies hoarding them!

One major drink that has been the "in" thing even in Chinese Beauty Shows is Collagen Drinks!  I've read and heard about them I have to admit, I was interested to try them myself!  But let me tell you, I'm such a "sissy" when it comes to "beauty drinks".  I have certain food allergies and to some medications so I'd rather go to a "safe" route.  

But I still thought of blogging these because I have AMW readers emailing me every now and then asking me my thoughts about these Glutathione and Collagen products.  So after reading the product information and some research, here are some FAQs about Glutathione and Collagen.

Belo Nutraceuticals Collagen Powder 7000mg x 14 sachets (Php 1,592.50)

  • Glutathione is considered the master antioxidant because it is the most potent antioxidant in the body.  The highest concentration is found in the liver and it is where it is needed most.
  • Glutathione can whiten the skin in 3 ways : interferes melanin production, changing dark melanins to light melanins and replace the skin tissue to excrete melanin.
  • Collagen on the other hand occupies 30% in the body 70% in the skin.  They inhibit formation of wrinkles by keeping the skin elastic and supple.
  • Collagen decreases as we age (that explains wrinkly skin!).
About Belo Ingestible
  • Belo Essentials' topical products can whiten the surface of the skin and to compliment the topical products, Belo created these ingestible to address whitening and anti-aging from within.
  • So far, there are no known side effects from taking these ingestible.
  • It is best to take Glutathione and Collagen in the morning with or without meal because glutathione levels are lowest and oxidative stress is highest during daytime.
  • You can see results as early as 2 weeks but at the end of the day, it depends on each individual.
  • If you are pregnant or lactating, PLEASE do not take any of the products mentioned in this post.
Now I'm not breastfeeding, I still don't have the guts to try these drinks!  But if YOU have tried any of the products mentioned in this post, feel free to share your experience by commenting below as I'm sure fellow interested readers will appreciate the hands-on experience! 

A fellow blogger told me the drink is okay when mixed with flavored drinks!  I will share this drink to my mom-in-law again who is very much willing to try these products!  I'll definitely report back for any updates!

Belo Collagen Drink is available at Watsons, Mercury Drug and other leading drugstores nationwide.  You can try before you buy at Sample Room.

  1. I've been taking Belo Collagen Powder and drinking it twice a day for the last 5 days, somehow I'm experiencing mild diarrhea on the 5th day. I've searched online that it might be a side effect of taking collagen. However, some say Belo Collagen Powder does not have side effects or they are not experiencing them but I think it's case-to-case it depends on how people's bodies react to certain ingredients.


I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to comment your questions, suggestions and just anything you may want to say! Keep smiling and stay happy!
