Could Vida Glow be the secret to beautiful skin & hair?
By Rebecca Gawthorne – Dietitian & Nutritionist
Is your hair dull, limp, brittle or dried out? Does your skin feel dehydrated, aged and missing that healthy, radiant glow? Well if you want to turn this around and have healthy, younger-looking skin and thick, strong, luscious hair, Vida Glow’s specially formulated pure and natural marine collagen may be the secret you are looking for!
What is Collagen?
Collagen is the primary structural protein found naturally in our bodies. It is responsible for the maintenance, strength and flexibility of healthy skin, hair, tendons, ligaments, hair, nails, blood vessels, and eyes. The name collagen comes from the Greek word Kolla, meaning glue, because it has the unique ability to absorb tension and helps cells maintain their external structure.
Collagen makes up the majority of the skin structure. Your skin is the largest organ in your body and is responsible for many important functions. There are different forms of collagen in our bodies: Type I and III, which are found in our skin, and Type VIII which is found in the linings of our blood vessels. Type III collagen is present in our bodies when we are young and is the reason for the youthful, glowing, wrinkle-free appearance of skin. However, when we enter our twenties, Type III collagen production diminishes and turns into Type I collagen which is much harsher and the reason for the appearance of wrinkles on our skin. Our skin also undergoes natural chronological ageing and photo ageing, again leading to deterioration of our skin’s natural structure.
Fortunately, replenishing your collagen supplies with natural collagen supplements like Vida Glow can help prevent your skin’s collagen levels diminishing and reverse the signs of ageing, returning your skin’s natural, youthful look.
Why Choose Vida Glow?
Vida Glow’s natural Marine Collagen is unique in that it is sustainably sourced from ocean fish. The collagen in Vida Glow is also hydrolysed and specifically formulated to have a low molecular weight, making it easier for your body to absorb, attaining the full benefit of the collagen. Consuming collagen orally vs topically also increases its bioavailability in the body.
Including Vida Glow in your healthy diet will help stimulate your body’s natural supply of collagen to increase firmness, elasticity and hydration in your skin and add strength and shine to your hair.
