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.
BE SKINNY DRINK ME (1,690php/pouch)
This is their vegan protein drink. It’s only 92 cals packed with 21g of protein. I’ve been taking this as my PM snack to supplement my daily protein needs. I’m currently doing a lean gains diet and strong curves workout routine so an additional protein bump is a must! What I like about this product is that it is very low in sugar, fat, and carbs compared to other protein drinks. It also has Glucomannan, a type of fiber that fills up the stomach. This ingredient reminds me so much of Psyllium. It should be consumed immediately or else it gets thicker and thicker it’s hard to swallow na. It also says it is strawberry flavored but I only get a hint of strawberries. It tastes like mushy green peas actually, with a strawberry fragrance. I’m not fond of the taste but it’s tolerable. I think this will taste better if you mix it with flavored drinks, but that would ruin the 92cals right?

|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.|
|GREEN TEA — Green tea is a widely recognized anti oxidant and may help in the fight against disease. A green tea extract containing polyphenols and caffeine has been shown to induce thermogenesis and stimulate fat oxidation, boosting the metabolic rate 4% without increasing the heart rate.|
|STEVIA — Stevia extracts have up to 300 times the sweetness of sugar, it is low in calories, low-carbohydrate, low-sugar food alternative. Because stevia has a negligible effect on blood glucose, it is an ideal natural sweetener for people on carbohydrate-controlled diets.|

|WHITE MULBERRY LEAF — Assists with healthy blood sugar levels, and has been linked to reduction in blood pressure and high cholesterol levels.|
|CHLOROGENIC ACID — Inhibits the release of glucose into the bloodstream, reducing the absorption of fat to assist with weight loss. It has shown to help in the reduction of blood pressure and cholesterol levels.|
|ACETYL-L-CARNITINE (ACL) — assists with the break down of fat while protecting muscle tissue, ideal to create a lean physique and maintain muscle-burning properties. ACL may also have an energising effect on the brain to help in the prevention of Alzheimer’s.|
|CHROMIUM — Assists with normal blood sugar levels and better insulin regulation, it plays a key part in the metabolism of carbohydrates.|
|ZINC — Plays an important part in digestion and the production of pancreatic enzymes to break down food to enable the digestion of carbohydrate, protein and macronutrients.|
|VITAMIN D — Receptors in the brain need D to keep hunger and cravings in check, it also stimulates the mood enhancing chemical, serotonin. Vitamin D increases the body’s ability to absorb other important weight-loss nutrients, especially calcium.|
I will still be drinking the Be Skinny Drink Me because the pure 21g of protein is amazeballs and it helps fill in my 70g-80g daily protein requirement. Hey, it’s tough to eat a lot of chicken breasts all the time you know? This protein drink is one of the best out there.
