Here's another reason to go out with friends on a Saturday night - a gin infused with collagen to make you look younger and it's now available online.
Girls would definitely love the Anti-AGin, an alcoholic drink infused with collagen, the potent ingredient that makes the skin look supple and younger.
The beauty and cosmetic industry markets collagen because as people get older, they lose this valuable component, resulting to lack of firmness and wrinkles.
"After months of working with culinary creatives Bompas & Parr, the spirit has been distilled with pure collagen as well as a mix of anti-ageing botanicals to help people look younger whilst having fun," the company said in its website.
The company worked with anti-aging experts in order to make the revolutionary drink made of classic botanicals which are known to regenerate the skin.
The 40 percent spirit is a combination of chamomile and tea tree scents. Other ingredients include nettle, witch-hazel, juniper, coriander and angelica root. It costs about $50.40 for each bottle.
Collagen is an important protein in the body because it holds the whole body together. It's the most abundant protein in the body since it's literally found everywhere - in the bones, muscles, skin and tendons.
This protein is naturally produced by the body, but as people age, its production diminishes. That is why taking in products with collagen or using beauty products with it, could help reduce wrinkles and other signs of premature aging on the skin.
One of the reasons why collagen is reduced in the body is the exposure to ultraviolet light and other environmental factors which are dubbed as extrinsic aging. That is why some people may look older than others of their age.
The new drink could provide a new way to consume collagen aside from the usual capsules available in the market. The gin, commissioned by Warner Leisure Hotels, was created by food and drink alchemists Bompas & Parr.
"For those that want to do everything they can to stay young, but don't want to give up alcohol, this is surely the next best thing," said Nicky-Hambleton Jones, an anti-aging expert from the show 10 Years Younger.
