Koplina: Eat your way to a healthier, beautiful you!

Sponsored Review
 
Apart for new beauty resolutions, one of the most important ones (and also the harder once to keep) is to maintain a healthy lifestyle despite my sedentary type of lifestyle. After all, your body is your temple and you are what you eat, no? I was delighted to meet up with Koplina, a 30-year Japanese health supplement brand and the opportunity to test out some of their best-selling items. Their fame had preceded themselves, having seen it on magazines and blogs over the last few years, with pretty rave reviews about.


Being a hardcore green tea fan, I got excited at the Koplina Green Aojiru Matcha ($36). Recommended as a convenient health supplement, and for those who tend to not have enough greens in their diet. The powder features extracts of barley grass, mulberry leaves, lactobacillus and Kyoto Uji matcha. Young barley grass contains a well-balanced nutrient set; with the essential vitamins, minerals, and proteins need for a healthy diet, including chlorophyll.



Equally rich in those nutrients is the Mulberry leaf which is popularly used to treating inflammation symptoms; as well as for ills such as high cholesterol, blood pressure, and diabetes. And giving that refined, aromatic  green tea flavor is Kyoto Uji Matcha, the finest green tea grown in the Uji region of Kyoto, Japan; and is packed with antioxidants, Vitamin C and chlorophyll; including plant-derived Lactobacillus, the friendly bacteria in our body that helps with digestion. 

This potent blend  which promises  the following benefits :
  • Helps to detoxify the body 
  • Improves skin condition & Metabolism
  •  Defies the effects of ageing 
  • Improves intestinal health Lowers blood sugar 
  •  Provides essential fibre often missing from modern diet

I love the taste of this! It tastes great if you drink it added to fruit juices  and tea. Get creative and even use it yogurt, ice-cream or mochi and substitute the usual matcha powder for this instead! Unlike other powder supplements that I've tried before, this does not change the taste of the solvent; but rather adds a very faint green tea aftertaste. I honestly felt that this helped with my dietary fibre intake, as I had less tummy ache occurrences and regulated bowel movement (ahem). Best recommended to take it at the start of the day on an empty stomach, a great option for a detox supplement!

But for working ladies who find it tough to keep to a regular intake, Koplina has a series of delicious tasting collagen jellies that makes it. Simply pop in a sachet in the handbag per day and have it at your convenience! 

The Koplina Collagen Jelly + Hyaluronic Acid ($28),is a fruity jelly strip that is packed with collagen, hyaluronic acid and 6 types of vitamins (Vitamin C, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Niacin (a form of Vitamin B3), Vitamin B12 and folic acid). Particularly suitable for those with dry skin, this helps to boost skin hydration, elasticity and suppleness. Collagen, an integral protein helps to keep the skin smooth and supple, whereas Hyaluronic acid aids skin in retain moisture thus diminishing the signs of wrinkles.



The Koplina Collagen Jelly + Hyaluronic Acid tastes sweet with a distinctive peach flavour; and is a great after meal dessert alternative or if you are looking to hit your sweet craving without paying the health price or add to the waistline since each strip contains only 14 kcal.


But my favourite for the Jelly series is this Koplina Placenta Jelly + Royal Jelly($28) which is formulated with collagen, placenta and royal jelly, and is the one for those seeking skin whitening, and it boost skin elasticity and suppleness with its Royal Jelly  ingredient, a much used health tonic for it's anti-ageing properties and giving the skin a youthful glow. 

It's star ingredient, Placenta can help reduce signs of freckles, pigmentation and dark spots, scars, fine lines and wrinkles, while boosting skin firmness. Placenta achieves this by enhancing the renewal process of skin, speeding cell turnover and regulate the natural oils in skin.

This one has a lovely floral taste of rose, and its sweetness is not as strong as the peach one. However I love taking it at the start of the morning after breakfast, for abit of sweet goodness to start my morning right.
