Peach Vida Glow marine collagen is the perfect complement to your water bottle, fruit tea, juice, yoghurt or morning porridge.
Peaches are rich in phytochemicals called phenols that act as antioxidants. Both peaches and marine collagen are rich in antioxidants, which are essential for healthy hair, skin, and nails as they help protect cells from damage.
Ageing begins to occur when there is an imbalance of pro – oxidants, free radicals, in the skin’s cells. The sun’s UV rays can accelerate free radical production whilst also depleting antioxidants. Photo ageing happens when damage from UV rays affect skin cell function, usually reflected in rougher, drier, wrinkled and less elastic skin. Antioxidants are vital to skin health as they protect skin cells by counteracting free radical activity. Vitamins A and C, both found in Peaches are the most notable in protecting and hydrating the skin.
Peaches are a source of both Vitamin A and B – carotene. B – carotene is a provitamin, which converts to Vitamin A inside the body. Vitamin C is a super vitamin for hair, skin and nails as it assists in the body’s production and formation of collagen, as well as helping with the absorption of collagen in your system. Vitamin C skin health benefits are largely attributed to its role in supporting healthy collagen. Collagen works with elastin to support the skin; it provides firmness and strength, whilst elastin gives the skin flexibility. The antioxidant effect of this vitamin is required for connective tissue synthesis inside the body.
