Collagen has become the beauty drink du jour.

Drinking collagen, rather than applying it topically or injecting it, provides the entire body with the building blocks it needs to support the creation and repair of the body’s connective tissues - a process that starts to break down by 2% every year from your mid-20s.

Collagen is comprised of long chain proteins, and when you drink collagen (or foods aiding in collagen production) your digestive system breaks down the proteins into amino acids. These amino acids are then absorbed and used as building blocks that support collagen production throughout the body, and assist in healing the body from within.

Vida’s Glows marine collagen powders are a particularly rich source of the amino acid glycine, which supports metabolic functions and detoxification. Additionally, research suggests that collagen supplements may help with our inner and outer health, including:

  • Thickening hair
  • Enhancing skin texture
  • Improving the nails bed and strengthening nails

  • Vida Glow’s marine collagen supplements are one of the easiest additions to any healthy lifestyle. There are no pills, it’s tasteless, and it takes all of three seconds to add a sachet to your water, tea, coffee, and even food. With offerings in five flavours, including original, blueberry, peach, mango, and pineapple, results are seen within a month of daily use.

    Benefits are seen in:

  • Nail growth
    Peeling and splitting nails are often the results of ageing as our collagen levels reduce year by year. Because collagen protein is the building block of your fingernails, adding Vida Glow’s marine collagen to your diet can help reverse dry, damaged and brittle nails. In a study using hydrolysed collagen, the subjects receiving marine collagen had significantly positive effects on nail improvement and quality, as well as an improvement on nail growth.

  • Available in Level 1 (Gratitude), Level 2 (Prosperity), and Level 3 (Love), Vida Glow’s marine collagen packs are an excellent boost to your diet to encourage healthy hair, skin, and nails.
