Thai Drinks to Make You More Beautiful
When I was in a convenience store the other day I came across this drink called “ManSome”. This and the more feminine version “Beauti Drink” are being marketed heavily as beauty drinks. I have seen the ManSome advert on TV and the emphasis is on becoming more handsome if you drink it. The selling point is the collagen which is protein in the skin that gives you more of a youthful look. The problem with collagen is, as we get older, our body produces less of it which results in thinner skin, dryness and wrinkles. Through the advertising, people are being encouraged to consume these collagen drinks in order to reverse the ageing process. But, there doesn’t seem to be any evidence that any of it is actually absorbed by your skin. If anything, it is probably just making your colon more beautiful! Anyway, make sure you don’t get your drinks mixed up if you are a man or you might end up being a lady boy!

Did the label claim that the collagen will be absorbed by the skin ?
If not, there is nothing wrong with the drink.
A believer who drinks it will get some results out of the placebo effects. It works the same way for most other health supplements and religions.
Thailand seems to be a free laboratory for testing all kinds of new products on an unsuspecting and naive public. I wonder how many of these “miracle” drinks, cosmetics, etc have been tested for safety and side-effects using internationally accepted standards. In the case above, Richard is correct, collagen (extracted from fish) is simply digested and excreted as a waste product. Clever advertising is enough to sell these gimmicks. Note: not only in Thailand – they are popular in UK too, for example.
There is enough uncertainty about the use of collagen as a supplement, orally or by injection to consider it risky. A healthier alternative would be to buy a bottle of vodka for the person you want to be beautiful for and he actually might think so afterwards……
