After a few cans of beer, you certainly start feeling young and handsome, even if you aren’t. Well now there’s a beer that promises to make you literally look better with every sip.
Precious, a new beer in Japan (where else?), contains collagen, a protein touted for its anti-aging properties. Collagen is the filler that cosmetic surgeons inject into wrinkles, and collagen-rich foods and beauty products are extremely popular with the Japanese. Made by Suntory, the light beer (5 percent ABV) contains two grams of collagen per can. Could a six-pack really reverse a lifetime of sun damage? Most definitely not, but you can always catch a flight to Hokkaido—the island where the beer is being released—and test it out. It certainly sounds more appealing that drinking a glass of Botox.
