SNEAK PEEK ALERT! We have this fabulous beauty product for you in your August GoodnessMe Box that we're so excited to share. Before it arrives on your doorstep, here's a quick lesson from our friends at Vida Glow, what makes this collagen beauty product so good for you.

What is collagen?

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body, making up approximately 75%, and it is the substance that holds the whole body together. Collagen is most commonly found in the skin, bones and connective tissue within the body, providing structural support, strength and a degree of elasticity (in combination with elastin).

Collagen is secreted by a variety of different cells, but primarily by connective tissue cells. While young, the body consistently produces collagen, but collagen synthesis begins to decline with age. As the fibroblasts cells responsible for producing collagen naturally decrease due to ageing, the visible signs of ageing become more prominent.

Marine Collagen (found in Vida Glow) derived from fish scale contains high amounts of amino acids and peptides involved in formation of collagen and elastin.


How does Vida Glow work?

Vida Glow marine collagen works from within to promote optimal skin function. The low molecule weight hydrolysed collagen peptide powder is highly bio-available, meaning that it has a high absorption rate above 90%. Once the collagen is absorbed, it is passes through the lining of the stomach and is absorbed by the bloodstream. It is then distributed through blood vessels to the dermis, the deeper layer of the skin, stimulating fibroblast proliferation and increasing the body’s natural production of collagen.

Vida Glow marine collagen also helps improve skin elasticity by increasing the density of fibroblasts, which are the cells responsible for rebuilding connective tissues. Being a natural supplement, Vida Glow is a non-invasive and effective solution to nourish your hair, skin and nails.


What are the benefits?

According to Vida Glow, the product will assist your SKIN in:

Youthful looking skin
Clearer and smoother complexion
Fewer lines and wrinkles

Should I be taking Vida Glow on a daily basis?

Vida Glow's Marine Collagen is a supplement that is designed for everyday use. Being a natural product, Vida Glow recommend it is fine to take on a daily basis. They say you’ll see faster and more effective results by including it into your daily routine. Consuming Vida Glow's marine collagen daily may result in firmer, more even toned, hydrated and healthier looking skin.

"You’ll notice your hair thickening and strengthening, transforming thin hair, as well as achieving a faster growth rate. This also applies to your nails as marine collagen supplementation replenishes collagen levels in your body leading to stronger and healthier nails, significantly improving weak or brittle nails." - Vida Glow website
