REVIEW : What keeps me going – Ephyra collagen drink and my other supplements

As I have said in my previous post (The beginning of my Ephyra journey) , here’s Part 1 of my review of Ephyra, a collagen drink that I have been consuming since 16th November 2013.
As of now, I have drank my way through 2 boxes (each box is for a month’s supply).

Below: Empty box on the right, new box on the left.

These Ephyra sachets are light & easy to pack. All I had to do was to add water and shake it to blend. The flavour is alike light orange cordial but much, much more natural in taste. It is pleasant to drink for sure.
This is my morning supplement for the last 2 months and I looked forward to it every morning! I’ll pop a capsule of my probiotics and drink this down to my last sip.

The sachets also made it easy for travel. I pack the shaker ( you don’t have to if you don’t want to since using a glass will do as well) and a few packs and I’ll drink it every morning without fail.

Too bad I couldn’t bring my Pharmanex probiotics with me during my travels. My probiotics has to be kept in the fridge all the time so I got this instead.
I just started this today (13th January 2014) so I’m not too sure of its effectiveness.
However I can vouch for the Pharmanex ProBio; it is really good as my gastric issues has subsided tremendously since I begun consuming them on a daily basis.

Moving on I would like to share on other supplements besides Ephyra & Pharmanex’s ProBio.
The one in the capsule pack is Berocca which is for my unexplainable fatigue. Verdict: Seems to be fine and doesn’t trigger my gastric.
Fat Burner Advanced – it does work and I got leaner. HOWEVER, I got really sick after the 3rd week. I was experiencing dizziness & was having the worst headaches. I had stopped taking this ever since.
Nutrilite Daily Multi Vitamin – I had taken this for MONTHS and it does absolutely nothing for me. I don’t feel any fresher, healthier or stronger.
Because of that I switched over to NuSkin Pharmanex R2 AgeLoc. Now this shit isn’t the slightest bit cheap but I was desperately looking for a supplement that would enhance my well-being and improve my health.
I consumed this diligently for 4 months (out of the RM2400 I spent for 6 months supply) and didn’t felt much (or any) improvement. Perhaps I need to consume this longer?

I did say I was desperate right? I spent RM380 (or was it RM350) for this one month supply of some health ‘drink’ by Jeunesse.
I’ll continue this soon since I stopped after a week.

My Pharmanex ProBio cost me RM113 for a month supply (1 bottle = 30 capsules). And the 6 months supply of R2 AgeLoc is RM2400.
Supplements are not cheap and when they don’t produce the results they promised, you feel frustrated don’t you?

Well I can attest that Ephyra did help me achieve what it promised – flawless, more radiant, smoother & younger skin. I had pretty good skin to begin with, but I was also using and experimenting with a whole lot of skincare products for my aging and tired looking complexion.
The Nu Skin ageLoc range cost me almost RM1200 ( can’t recall the exact price now) and it did showed promise within the first 3 months. After that I noticed my complexion stayed the same, and no improvement since.

I switched again, this time to some popular Korean brands like Tony Moly and its popular snail cream and essence.

Since starting my Ephyra “diet” I stopped all the above skincare and only consume Ephyra since mid November. I’m glad to say that my complexion and overall skin condition hasn’t regressed to its tired, dull state few months before.
My pores are noticeably reduced, I certainly looked more radiant and even without daily application of body lotion my skin remained smooth.

My guess is that my body was able to absorb the nutrients from Ephyra better than the others that I’ve been consuming. I’m sure the other supplements I’ve tried has their merits but my body wasn’t able to absorb it.

Maybe yes? Maybe no?
Well, I know I have to keep on looking. For now I’ll definitely continue with my Ephyra daily intake and I’ll be taking Berocca Performance next since I find Berocca pretty good.

So what is the benefits by using EPHYRA?

1. Improves skin elasticity, making it soft and glowing
2. Improves skin condition from freckles and blemishes
3. Prevent wrinkles and smoothen fine lines
4. Improves hair quality for more healthy, soft and shiny
5. Improve digestive system in the body
6. Help to reduce cholesterol level
7. Boosts your energy and concentration
8. Boosts your immune system
9. Aids in weight control and help in increasing your metabolism
10. Relieves arthritis and joint pains

So there you go; my experience, struggles and money wasted on supplements so far. I hope my friends and readers who read this post find it helpful and could give me some recommendations on the supplements that they have tried and think it might work for me.
I  would appreciate it! 🙂
