Meiji Amino Collagen Powder

My skin texture are very bad all these while. Freckles, wrinkles and telengiectasia (enlargement of blood vessel on my face, or spider vein) which re-appear after 2 months of laser (I want my money back!!!) make me very unhappy :(

I decided to try something different. Heard of collagen and it's effectiveness from many friends, so i decided to give it a try.

After much comparisons, i finally bought this

The reasons I buy Meiji Amino Collagen Powder:

1. It have 5000mg of collagen which is our body everyday's need. As compare to Fancl Collagen, capsule form which contains 1500mg in it's daily dosing (6 capsules) and Kinohimitsu J'pan Beauty Drink 2500mg.

2. It is top seller for 3 consecutive years in Japan, as compare to Lotte Collagen, eventhough the later have same amount of active ingredient and is cheaper, but the reputation is not as good as Meiji.

3. The price of 1 month consumption is cheaper than CollagenMAX. CollagenMax is advertised to be taken once every 3 days, in which 1 bottle of it contain 9000mg. My quiry is whether the same amount of collagen will be absorbed everyday (3000mg/day)? Or 9000mg will be absorbed on the day of consumption and no more collagen in our body for the rest of 2 days? And not to mention the reputation and the experience in collagen making (CollagenMax is quite new if not mistaken).

4. Meiji is a very well known and established company with wide variety of products. It also have a share in pharmaceutical and healthcare market (it is a important point to a pharmacist like me,haha). It is now one of the largest producer of antibiotic in the world (see, i have professional knowledge ler). So, I have more confidence in terms of its quality and safety.
