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, by our 50’s we’ve lost over half the amount of collagen in our bodies, and the natural production ceases altogether. 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.
Original Vida Glow marine collagen remains the favourite in our 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. Original blend is the perfect addition to coffee, tea or plain water.
Vida Glow marine collagen provides an array of benefits such as:
- More youthful looking skin
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
