Shake or blend well. You can also add it to a smoothie. This is optional as when formulating our Beauty Powders we made sure it tastes great just in water!

Yes, laboratory tests are carried out on the product for safety and quality in Sydney, Australia. Tests are conducted on microbiology, nutrition and heavy metals (e.g. mercury). Tests confirm that Vida Glow is 100% safe for human consumption.
Vida Glow marine collagen does not contain any shark fin, dolphin, whale, crustaceans or shellfish.
Vida Glow is not recommended for people who have allergies to fish.
What are the side effects of taking Vida Glow?
There are four possible side effects of taking Marine Collagen:
- Gastrointestinal upset, this occurs when 10 grams or more is being consumed daily, which we do not recommend. The highest recommended dosage of Vida Glow is 9 grams through the Love Package.
- A lingering after taste or smell for approximately 30 minutes after consumption. If you experience this we would recommend stirring Vida Glow into a juice, shake or smoothie, and avoiding it in plain water.
- Hypersensitivity reactions can result as a side effect of taking marine collagen supplements. Hypersensitivity reactions happen as an abnormal response of the immune system against allergens, such as food, drugs and supplements. Collagen supplements that come from ocean fish or other marine sources may cause an allergic reaction, usually in the form of a skin rash. Please note that this is not serious, unless you have an allergy to fish, and usually subsides once you stop consuming the supplement.
- Decreased appetite.
Should I take Vida Glow on a daily basis?
Yes, Vida Glow's Marine Collagen is a supplement that is designed for everyday use. Being a natural product it is completely fine to take on a daily basis. In fact you’ll see faster and more effective results by including it into your daily routine. Consuming Vida Glow's marine collagen daily will result in firmer, more even toned, hydrated and healthier looking skin.
Your hair and nails will also greatly benefit from daily consumption of Vida Glow. 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.
We highly recommend daily use to stimulate your body’s natural collagen production.
The Beauty Powder is also recommended for daily use since each powder is targeted at everyday health, wellness and beauty needs.

At this time skin becomes more hydrated, followed by a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles in 6 weeks. By the 9th week mark you’ll see a noticeable increase in skin elasticity and firmness.
Most of our customers have seen changes in 4 – 6 weeks in skin, hair and nails, with some achieving results in as little as 2 weeks.

How does Vida Glow work?
Vida Glow marine collagen works from within to promote optimal skin function. Our low molecule weight hydrolysed collagen peptide powder is highly bioavailable, meaning that it has a high absorption rate above 90%. Once the collagen is absorbed, it is passed 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.
Our hydrolysed collagen powder also triggers the HAS2 receptors in the dermis responsible for the production of hyaluronic acid, aiding skin hydration. Vida Glow marine collagen also improves 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 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). In particular, collagen can be found in the extracellular matrix - an intricate network of macromolecules that determine the physical properties of body tissues.
In the dermis - collagen helps form a fibrous network, upon which new cells can grow. Collagen is also required in the replacement and restoration of dead skin cells.
Collagen production naturally declines with age, reducing the structural integrity of the skin and leading to sagging skin, the formation of lines and wrinkles and the weakening of cartilage in joints.
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 derived from fish scale contains high amounts of amino acids and peptides involved in formation of collagen and elastin.
