On Friday, 18th of October, I joined Futurelife for a morning of sumptuous spoils as they launched their latest beauty innovation. Yes, beauty just got tasty!

FUTURELIFE, South Africa’s leading functional food brand, is the first to unlock access to the ultimate combination of a balanced meal supplement + a youthful ageing solution in an on-the-go shake and bar.

BEAUTI FOOD is a scientifically formulated blend of beauty specific collagen peptides ( 5g per serving ). 

Futurelife BEAUTI FOOD is available in two forms. One being a  nutritional shake ( no added sugar )  which comes in two flavours, French Vanilla and Caramel Latte. The other, a protein bar in the flavours French Vanilla and Chocolate Brownie.

The BEAUTI FOOD is high in protein and Low GI. The advised dosage in order to achieve the stated results is one BEAUTI FOOD Bar or Shake daily for 28 days.

I’m only on day 3 of the 28 days and will definitely be back ( on the blog or via my Instagram ) to let you in on how I’m feeling about the product after 28 days. My favorite BEAUTI FOOD right now is the French Vanilla nutritional shake, it tastes amazing! Because it’s high in protein, I’ve decided to take it in the afternoons after my work outs to help with my muscle recovery and growth.

What is Collagen?

Over the years, collagen supplements have become very popular with a lot of conversation around their promotion online. But, what is collagen?

Collagen is the most abundant protein, making up to  30% of the protein in our body and 70% of the protein within our skin. Collagen is responsible for providing our skin with structure and helps strengthen our bones. Collagen also aiding in our skins elasticity and hydration.

As I start my collagen journey, I’m personally looking forward to better skin hydration and improved skin elasticity. My face has been going through the absolute most as it tries to adjust to the changing weather conditions, and I’m definitely keen to assist it where I can.

Futurelife claims that their collagen reduces the appearance of wrinkles in 28 days. It is also said to improve the skins elasticity and firmness, increase nail growth and strength, increase skin hydration and decrease in cellulite score. Now these are ALL boxes I’m definitely trying to tick!

For those wondering if the BEAUTI FOOD Nutritional Shakes can be used as a meal replacement, the answer is no. You can however use the shake as a meal supplement, an addition to your existing daily intake. One sachet of the BEAUTI FOOD Nutritional shakes provides a GL of 7. According to GIFSA, a drinkable meal replacement requires a GL between 15-20

The bars and shakes have also not been produced with kids in mind, so it is not advised to have kids try out the BEAUTI FOOD.

Those considering the BEAUTI FOOD as part of their weight management plan, you’ve come to the right place!

Studies support the consumption of increased dietary protein, like that found in our BEAUTI FOOD range, reduces body weight. Keeping you fuller for longer, fueling lean muscle mass and recovery, assisting in lowering the GI of a meal, this nutrient is key in any weight management plan.

      Hi Qhama,

      So unfortunately I just wasn’t able to complete the 28 days. If you follow me on instagram you’ll know I’ve been openly sharing how I had a sudden acne break out for the first time in my life. I then had to get off of everything, even my IV drips, just until I understand what’s going on. I’m definitely jumping back on once my skin is fully back to life.

      Have you tried it or thinking of trying it?

    I have ALS and should take collagen but find I don’t like smoothies, so finding this is a godsend. ALS is a muscle wasting disease which is fatal and incurable abd within a few days of taking this, my soft palate firmed quite a bit and because I hardly wear make up anymore, when I did, I noticed that the skin under my eyes was firmer. I am 54 so I am older. I have it for breakfast and find it to be enough.
