Blueberries naturally contain lots of Vitamin C; one serving of blueberries gives you almost 25% of your daily value. This super vitamin is incredibly important to the formation of collagen in the body. The naturally occurring Vitamin C in Blueberry Vida Glow helps with the absorption of collagen in your system and is an essential component in the body’s production of collagen.
The benefits of Vitamin C for the skin are largely attributed to its role in supporting healthy collagen formation and production in the body. Collagen works with elastin to support the skin; it provides firmness and strength, whilst elastin gives the skin flexibility.
Exposure to the harsh environments and environmental pollutants can accelerate skin ageing by degrading collagen and triggering oxidative stress in the skin. The naturally occurring Vitamin C in this delicious flavour assists in rejuvenating damaged skin, as well as helping to maintain firm and youthful skin.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies, making up 75% of the skin, our largest organ. Collagen is not only the building block for our hair, skin and nails, but it also forms our teeth, blood vessels, cartilage and is the main connective tissue that holds everything together.
Collagen is made in our bodies by tiny cells called “fibroblasts” and deposits itself most abundantly in the dermis, the deeper layer of the skin, as well as eye tissues, ligaments and tendons of the joints.
As we age, our body’s production of collagen slows meaning that our skin, eyes, ligaments, tendons, teeth, cartilage, hair and nails have less of it. This is when we see the signs of ageing, as these structures no longer have the strength and support that they need and thus begin breaking down.
Replenishing collagen levels in your body with a natural supplement such as Vida Glow slows the ageing process, adds hydration, firmness and plumps the skin, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. Vida Glow also strengthens and promotes growth to your hair and nails.
With the added goodness of natural blueberries, this flavour is the ideal boost in your diet to encourage healthy hair, skin and nails.
