I’m always on the lookout for healthier alternatives for my usual Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey in chocolate for my post-workout protein needs, and also a quick metabolism and energy boost. I’m thankful Rejuvenated Philippines sent me a message to try their products. Their products are made and based in the UK and claims to be all-natural. Well it’s true 🙂
I’ve been using their Be Skinny and Collagen line. I had to write this already while the thrill is still in me.

|PEA PROTEIN — Pea protein is a form of protein powder, valued for its high digestibility (90-95%), low potential for allergic responses. Pea protein has a light texture and slightly sweet taste, which mixes well in solution. It is less allergenic than soy and has no negative health controversies associated with it.
|GLUCOMANNAN — The European Food Standards Agency (EFSA) considers that 1 gram of Glucomannan drank with 1 – 2 glasses of water gives a feeling of fullness. Glucomannan can hold up to 100 times its own weight in water. It is a bulk-forming agent and may have a positive influence on blood sugar levels by delaying stomach emptying. These actions also promote healthy cholesterol levels, thereby supporting cardiovascular health.
|INULIN — Inulin has many health benefits. Inulin increases calcium absorption and possibly magnesium absorption, while promoting the growth of intestinal bacteria. In terms of nutrition, it is considered a form of soluble fibre and is sometimes categorized as a prebiotic. Due to the body’s limited ability to process fructans, inulin has minimal impact on blood sugar. It is considered suitable for diabetics and potentially helpful in managing blood sugar-related illness.
