Increase Your Collagen Intake This Season

Vida Glow’s marine collagen is a fibrous protein extracted from the scales of Deep Sea Red Snapper, and hydrolysed, becoming a low molecular weight powder which is easy to include into your foods or drinks.

Clinical studies have found that collagen possesses medicinal properties that help improve the quality of our hair, skin and nails.

With the extra fun we’ll be having this silly season, why not incorporate a dose of health this month to keep you looking your best despite the toxins and late nights.

Here are some reasons why you should increase your collagen intake:

Prevents Skin Ageing

Marine collagen has antioxidant properties that have been used in many skincare products to prevent and repair damage caused by environmental factors, as well as the damage caused by the ageing process itself. Scientific studies have shown that collagen supplementation increases skin hydration, increases the thickness of the epidermis, as well as the activity levels of fibroblasts which are the cells responsible for collagen proliferation in the body. Fibroblasts play an important role in the creation of new connective tissue, such as the skin.

Targets Wrinkles

As collagen depletes, wrinkles and lines form in those places where the skin moves most; such as forehead and lips. Wrinkles and skin blemishes benefit the most from collagen. Ageing is the main cause of wrinkles. However, environment, pollutants and rays from the sun all contribute. Regularly taking a collagen supplement encourages your skin to become soft and supple. It also significantly hydrates the skin, giving it a plump look which smooth outs fine lines and wrinkles.

Improves Hair Health

Collagen is a major component in hair growth, because it fights off free radicals that can affect your hair's texture, growth and thickness. Restoring collagen in the hair shaft can improve hair growth. Collagen supplementation through Vida Glow, strengthens hair and increases the diameter of individual hairs, giving your hair an overall fuller appearance.
