As someone who has always burned the candle at both ends (and in the middle, as my mother tells me) vitamins and supplements have been part of my life for as long as I can remember. I’m not one for popping pills or going to the doctor with a minor complaint, so I’ve always turned to natural solutions and daily supplements that will help me remain healthy and active. I discovered Fountain on the London Underground; the posters were everywhere, claiming that a daily dose could literally help you drink your way young. The main ingredient of Fountain is Resveratrol; known for its ability to literally slow down and delay the ageing process, Resveratrol (found in grape skins) is fast becoming a well-known name in the worlds of both health and beauty. Until now it’s never been available in liquid form, but only used as an additive in expensive skin creams. Fountain brings this highly active and potent ingredient in a consumable format for the first time, providing far more absorption and efficacy. But how does it work?
Put simply, biology dictates that our cells divide to create new
cells. These new cells are often uneven and abnormal, which is more
commonly known as the ageing process. Resveratrol has been proven to
delay this process by actively encouraging replication of the normal
cell and division at a slower rate, therefore extending the life span of
cells overall and delaying the ageing process. As well as this super
ingredient, Fountain also includes natural Pomegranate to sweeten the taste, as well as the antioxidant Black Carrot and Hyaluronic Acid, which acts as a delivery system for Resveratrol to ensure it’s as effective as possible. Brandon Truaxe, Founder & CEO of Deciem, says:
“Resveratrol has been proven to benefit structures throughout the body,
including the skin. The basis of the development of fountain, The Beauty
Molecule, is that health and beauty are one and that beauty really
begins when all tissues are healthier”
All you need to take is a teaspoon of Fountain every day, ensuring that the active ingredients can get stuck in and help you look your best. I’ve been taking this for a couple of weeks now and have to admit I feel a bit better, my skin is looking pretty good and I’m not suffering from breakouts or dry skin due to my current lifestyle like I would expect. The drink itself is an acquired taste, but as a fan of all kinds of exotic fruits and berries, I love it. You can drink it alone, add to water or tea, or even add a shot to your morning smoothie – it’s really flexible and enables you to play around. With this kind of product it’s impossible for me to say I’ve lost five years overnight, but the science and credibility behind this innovation makes me thoroughly convinced that this could really help.
Fountain is currently exclusively available in Boots for £24.99 (240ml)
