I think I am a tortoise! Seriously, after recently being told tortoises don’t drink water, they get all the fluids they need from vegetables, it reminded me that I hardly ever drink water, which has been a life-long problem for me. Water maintains body temperature and maintains blood circulation, and I tend to only drink water when I am thirsty, so to discover H30 by Rejuvenated has been a Godsend, ESPECIALLY living in Dubai where humidity can reach 90% and temperatures can soar to 50 degrees during the summer.
British brand, Rejuvenated has been around for a good few years now, I first came across the brand a while ago via twitter when beauty industry peers were raving on about ‘Collagen Shots’, a revolutionary anti-ageing drink containing ingredients such as marine collagen and acai to maintain healthy, youthful skin.
On a recent trip back to London, I just had to see my dear friend Nadine and she was looking AH-MAZING, she always does, but she was looking extra hot! During an al-matcha latte (almond milk matcha latte) and cuddles with Gigi, Nadine shared her secret with me, she had been popping beauty pills from Rejuvenated and she had some for me too! Yipeee!
A lot of collagen-promoting neutraceuticals contain fish gelatine, which is fine for me, as I am a pescatarian, however my sisters are vegans so these products are perfect for them as they are either vegetarian or vegan.
“You look beautiful today?”
So, which products resulted in THAT compliment? I started popping veggiecol twice a day exactly a week ago today and started my H3O Night Repair 4 days ago, taking one a night, before bed as per the directions.
What IS veggiecol and H3O Night Repair?
They are vegetarian beauty supplements made with 100% active and sustainably sourced ingredients, collagen extracts from egg, peptides, acai berry, vitamins and minerals.
The pack contains 60 capsules, which lasts a month, and after taking them for only one week friends have made comments on ‘that glow’ and ‘sparkling eyes’. Only problem I have now, is what will I do when I run out? Rejuvenated isn’t available in Dubai *crying face.
H30 Night Repair is a supplement with active natural botanical extracts, vitamins and ionic electrolyte minerals. Suitable for vegans, diabetics, and as with veggiecol, contains 100% active and sustainably sourced ingredients. The pack contains 30 capsules, which lasts a month.
Now, onto H30!
H30 can improve your body’s natural hydration levels and contains a powerful blend of Hyaluronic acid (often called the fountain of youth), it can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water. It also contains ingredients which are new to me; Inulin (not insulin), categorized as a prebiotic and potentially helpful in managing the blood’s sugar-related illnesses. Then there’s Trans-resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant naturally sourced from grapes, certain berries and various plants to help protect them against environmental stresses.
Full ingredients list
Ingredients: Chicory Root Fibre (inulin), Electrolyte Complex (Calcium, Lactate, Potassium Chloride, Magnesium Oxide, Sodium Citrate, Ionic Minerals), Beauty Complex (Resveratrol, Hyaluronic Acid), Ascorbic Acid, Elderflower, Berries, Beetroot extract, Citric acid.
*No bulking agents here.
Free from: artificial colours or sweeteners, gluten, preservatives, lactose, yeast, starch, cholesterol and fat. Suitable for vegans.
Directions: Use one scoop/sachet in a glass filled with 400-500ml of water, stir well. Can be used in juices/smoothies too but I prefer water, it tastes like a summer fruits cordial.
I only have 7 days supply of H30, so I am using them sparingly before training to help combat fatigue and keep me energized throughout my training session. I’m not into heavy protein shakes before training, I would much rather have this drink which is naturally flavoured with elderflower and berries! Yum!
Alongside taking my supplements from Rejuvenated, I am going to make more of a conscious effort to drink water!
Tip! Some of my favourite ingredients, which I feel help me stay hydrated, are ginger and lemon. I like to grate ginger into hot water topped with lemon slices.
