I’m an ardent believer that if something is worth doing then it’s worth doing well, but bringing your A-game to everything you do on a daily basis can really be tough. It can be draining both physically and mentally.
Perhaps that’s why, even now, as a married woman, there’s a part of me that loves going back to my parents’ home, enjoying home cooked food, having my dear old granny fuss over me and sometimes prepare me bird’s nest to rejuvenate the soul.
It brings back lots of fond childhood memories, guaranteed to warm the far reaches of anyone’s heart and bring a big ginormous smile to your face.
But with our hectic lifestyles, it’s just not feasible to always go home and see our families when we want to. Life goes on and we have to learn to take care of ourselves.
This is exactly why I was so happy to discover TruLife and their range of ‘truly’ authentic health drinks.
Now even granny can put her feet up and enjoy some well-deserved rejuvy-time the next time I go home.
Read on to find out more!
Understanding our heritage, our roots and culture, yet accommodating our fast paced way of life, TruLife brings us authentic, conveniently packaged ‘health shots’ which taste as if they were made by granny herself!
You know, TruLife has a pretty interesting mantra about the relationship between their products and love.
They believe that the bonds of love that we have with our loved ones are just like their strands of intertwined Bird’s Nest – timeless.
To illustrate this better, TruLife filmed a moving video inspired by a friend of theirs, telling their heartwarming love story and featuring their signature Bird’s Nest.
Psst! This video is a real tear-jerker. You’ve been warned!
It’s a beautiful story, isn’t it?My husband, Bobby and I watched it many times and no matter how many times we see it, we still cry, especially when the old granny appears at the dinner table. It feels like a victorious “Yay! They made it!” moment!
We’re so happy this story is true and we sincerely wish the couple a life of peach and happiness and we hope they continue to have many more years of wedded bliss! <3
And now, let’s move on to the other star of the show too. 😛
TruLife Bird’s Nest with Rock Sugar
Now perhaps some of you are not familiar with edible bird’s nest, it’s pretty much as the name implies. Siwftlets, birds of the swift family, make their nests using solidified saliva and these nests are then harvested.
An Asian delicacy believed to be rich in nutrients and thought to have numerous health benefits, it can be used to make special soups and other dishes.
It’s great to know that TruLife takes numerous steps to ensure they harvest their bird’s nest from sustainable organic sources, using only nests which have been vacated and from natural undisturbed areas where the birds can flourish free from pollution, which in turn serves to improve the quality of the final bird’s nest.
Additionally, TruLife products are all manufactured in their Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) certified facilities in Singapore to ensure only the highest quality products reach the consumer.
With no preservatives, artificial flavouring or colouring, you truly get to enjoy this bird’s nest with confidence.
There is very little in the way of fragrance, but the delicate sweet taste really delivers.
Whether enjoyed straight from the bottle, or after warming in a water bath as my granny showed me, you’re bound to enjoy this rejuvenating drink and its ability to boost your wellness, immune system and nourish your skin from within.
There’s a genuine feel good factor after treating yourself to one of these at the end of a busy day.
Usual Retail Price: $45.80 | Box of 6 bottles
TruLife Collagen Cell Renew
The goodness doesn’t stop with bird’s nest, TruLife have an entire range of health shots to meet all your health needs.
Next up is TruLife’s Collagen Cell Renew drink, packing in a groundbreaking 15,000mg of mirco marine collagen peptides in each bottle, this little bottle packs a strong protein punch.
While it’s up for debate whether oral collagen supplements really help boost cell collagen content, collagen supplements do form good sources of the amino acids Proline and Glycine which are essential for the repair of tissues and building of muscle as well as having significant roles in terms of nerve and brain function.
The drink has an almost champagne like aroma (always a bonus), with a natural sweet taste without the added sugars or additives. Thus you needn’t worry about adding to your daily caloric intake, and rest assured that the results you see are solely the effect of high quality marine collagen and not the by-product of added sweeteners in the formula.
The thick, rich texture of the drink also further attests to the high collagen concentration.
I found taking a bottle a night before going to bed seemed to really help me relax and fall into a deep sleep, which of course means a more refreshed and youthful you the next day.
Usual Retail Price: $56.60 | Box of 10 bottles
