Everyone is born beautiful but maintaining the same skin and other physical features is not an easy task especially when aging, harsh environments and hectic schedule are factors that we could not prevent nor eliminate. Who wouldn’t want to have a beautiful, flawless, smooth and supple skin? In fact having a beautiful kin is every woman’s (man’s as well) dream. It is never too late, no matter how old you get because anytime or any point in your life you can always have a chance to make a difference! Only if you want to!
To all beauty junkies out there, I am sure collagen and hyaluronic acid are no strange ingredients to you. As we age, our skin loses its ability to produce new collagen and hyaluronic acid efficiently like when we were in our early 20s or younger. In the long run, our skin start to sag and wrinkles start to appear. Harsh environments and busy lifestyle further deteriorate skin tension. But after 50 years of research, Japan found another structure lies deep in our skin that may prolong or restore our skin youthfulness and suppleness. Introducing Proteoglycan Collagen!!!
Proteoglycan collagen is found deep in our skin (dermis). Due to its feather like shape, it retains 30% more water than hyaluronic acid and work together with hyaluronic acid giving skin an overall supple and bouncy appearance. Proteoglycan also stimulates the production of collagen and EGF (epidermal growth factor) that promotes skin cell regeneration (making new and younger skin cells) and restores skin elasticity. As proteoglycan collagens are connected to both collagen and hyaluronic acid in our skin, it works with them to further improve skin texture, smoothness and firmness. Say goodbye to wrinkles and saggy skin!
ITOH Proteoglycan Collagen first product introduced to Singapore with the No.1 Trending Ingredient in JAPAN!
ITOH Proteoglycan Collagen is extracted purely from the highest nasal cartilage quality of Hokkaido salmon. ITOH Proteoglycan Collagen works to supplement this amazing compound to our skin to fight skin aging, restore skin elasticity and erase wrinkles.
Why should I consume ITOH proteoglycan collagen if I am already consuming collagen and/or hyaluronic acid supplements? Collagen and hyaluronic acid supplements replace loss collagen and hyaluronic acid in the body, proteoglycan alone stimulates the body to produce collagen and hyaluronic acid more efficiently and retains water more than hyaluronic acid. ITOH Proteoglycan Collagen contains 4 beauty ingredients proteoglycan, collagen, hyaluronic acid and mangosteen extract that work synergistically to fight aging, erase wrinkles, and keeps mature skin bouncy, baby soft and radiance from within.

Are you having problem to pass motion? Or you can’t even remember when was the last time you went to the toilet to do your business! If it is a YES, you might be suffering from mild to severe constipation.
Constipation is defined medically as fewer than three stools per week and severe constipation as less than one stool per week. Constipation is a result of the slow movement of stool through the colon. Symptoms may include, but not limited to lower abdominal discomfort, infrequent or straining to have a bowel movement, physiological distress with having bowel movements. There are many causes of constipation, including medications, poor bowel habits (including not able to “go” in public or work toilets), low fiber diets, abuse of laxative, not drinking enough water, increase in age and etc.
But good news! There are treatments available for constipation.
1) Drink enough water
Water is vital for our survival. Not only it keeps us at the optimal body temperature, almost every cell in the body needs water to function properly. Water also improves the functioning of the gastrointestinal tract and helps digestion. As water act as a lubricant in the body, inadequate water often results in constipation as the colon pulls water from the stool to maintain hydration. Thereby, making it harder and difficult to pass. Solution? Drink 8 to 10 glasses of water a day to keep your body hydrated.
2) Eat more fiber
Fiber helps keep your bowel movements regular, so eating more of it is a great way to both reduce constipation and prevent it from recurring. Some good fiber choices include consuming more leafy green vegetables, unprocessed grains, seed and nuts and kiwi fruit.
3) Consume prunes
Prunes are high in fiber and contain sorbitol, a stool-loosening sugar that naturally helps to relieve constipation. Sorbitol helps to draw water in the large intestine, thereby stimulating bowel movements.
If you don’t like the wrinkly texture or its unique taste, try our prune vinegar drink. Our Japanese Vinegar drinks contain high amounts of amino acids, citric acids, vitamins and minerals that do not only help to relieve constipation by supporting our gastrointestinal health, it helps to lower cholesterols and reduce risk of hypertension.
4) Eat yogurt
Yogurt contains live bacterial culture (probiotics) that balance the good and the bad microflora in the gut and reduce the amount of time it takes for your food to be digested and move through your system.
5) Use tea
Tea contains natural ingredients that have a laxative effect and aid in softening stool. This is also one of the reasons that tea is such a good detoxifying agent. Not only it helps with constipation, tea has numerous benefits that are good for you such as antioxidants, anti-carcinogen compound, phytochemicals, anti-inflammation and vitamins.
