Collagen is a protein that acts as the glue that holds our bodies together. Collagen is the second most abundant substance in our body behind water and is the building block of our tissues. Collagen makes up 75% of our skin, over 90% of our ligaments and tendons and 35% of our bones. Other structures that are primarily made of collagen are our hair, nails and cartilage.
In our mid-twenties, our collagen production begins to decrease at a rate of 2% a year and by our 50’s we’ve lost over half the amount of collagen in our bodies! This is what is known as the ageing process and is most noticeable in our skin and hair, whether it’s wrinkles, sagging skin, finer hair or grey hair.
Natural supplementation through Vida Glow increases the body’s collagen levels as well as the production of this super protein.
Our Original Vida Glow marine collagen remains the favourite in our Collagen range as it’s the most convenient to include into your daily diet with the majority of our customers reporting no taste or smell, making it ideal to stir into any food or drinks. Our Original blend is the perfect addition to coffee, tea or plain water. If you have more sensitive taste buds* we would recommend trying one of our flavoured marine collagen options.
Our Original Vida Glow is all natural pure marine collagen, derived from the scales of ocean fish, containing no wheat, gluten, sugar, additives, preservatives or flavours. Vida Glow only uses low molecule weight hydrolysed collagen, which is highly bioavailable and holds an absorption rate above 90%. Our marine collagen is free from any heavy metals, toxins or pollution.
As our Original Vida Glow has no other additives or flavouring, it contains the highest quantity of collagen per serve out of our range. Vida Glow uses Type 1 collagen, which is specific for hair, skin and nail benefits.
* The majority of our customers report no taste or odour, however, those with more sensitive taste buds have reported a slight marine flavour when taken in water only. We recommend our flavoured collagen products if you have sensitive taste buds.
