GOLD COLLAGEN® is a unique liquid beauty supplement designed to nourish skin from the inside out. It’s been designed to fight the early signs of ageing to promote a beautiful, younger and healthy looking appearance of skin, hair and nails. Developed by MINERVA Research Labs and European scientists, GOLD COLLAGEN® is a patented sugar-free blend of hydrolysed collagen, hyaluronic acid, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to create a liquid beauty supplement with maximum effect – one shot of GOLD COLLAGEN® is up to 20 times more effective than using a topical collagen cream or collagen pill. Developed on the back of a growing demand for those looking for a more natural, effective and reliable solution to anti-ageing, this ready-to-drink, wonderful tasting liquid beauty supplement is impressive on its own but can also be taken to enhance an existing skincare regime.

Collagen is a major structural protein in the skin. It plays a key role in providing the structural scaffolding for cells, tissues, and organs but it also gives skin strength and durability and is responsible for the smooth, plump appearance of young, healthy skin. As we age, the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid in the skin gradually decreases which causes dehydration in the skin and a dull complexion which adds to the signs of ageing. The unique hydrating properties of hyaluronic acid combined with the highest quality bioactive collagen peptides contained in GOLD COLLAGEN® offers the ultimate in skin cell regeneration and hydration, resulting in increased smoothness, softening the appearance of fine lines and decreasing the appearance of wrinkles in six weeks.

Attendees at this years National Film Awards will be amongst the first VIP’s to sample a brand new luxury vodka which will soon be on everyone’s lips. The age old question from any passionate Vodka drinker is ultimately what the secret is to putting together an exceptional tasting vodka which can not only stand the test of time but be a regular choice amongst drinkers in the UK.

The team behind Angel Tears Vodka knew they had one piece of the puzzle already: a 100% pure grain spirit with a clean, smooth taste. This super-premium vodka hails from Georgia, where nature provides the highest quality raw materials needed to make it.

The first of these is Georgian wheat, grown in the country’s most fertile soils. The second is pure mineral spring water, filtered through glaciers in the stunning Bakuriani mountains in the Borjomi region of central Georgia. With towering peaks reaching altitudes of up to 2,300m, these pristine slopes are the source of the vodka’s purity.

Together wheat and water are fermented to produce a liquid with unique Georgian character. This alcohol is triple-distilled and filtered for absolute purity, resulting in a vodka with clean mineral notes and a soft and silky mouthfeel, plus an attractive touch of sweetness to balance the palate.

Angel Tears Vodka have secured the naming rights to the Best Actor 2016 category at the prestigious National Film Awards which takes place on the 31st of March 2016 at the Porchester Hall in London, W2.
