Collagen supplementation for its variety of benefits is not a new phenomenon. Japanese women have been addressing the signs of ageing from within for over three hundred years. Marine collagen is rich in protein, amino acids and antioxidants working together to replenish the collagen levels in the body that naturally decrease with age.
Adding Vida Glow's marine collagen to your daily diet offers an array of benefits, these include:
HAIR - Strengthens hair by restoring collagen in the hair follicles at their root, assisting hair growth, shine, thickness, volume, aiding hair loss and giving an overall improvement to hair health.
SKIN - Improving skin's elasticity, firmness and significantly increasing the water content within the skin, which in turn smooths out fine lines and wrinkles, and plumps the skin. Antioxidants help with free radical damage from poor diets, toxins, pollution and sun damaged skin.
NAILS - Promotes nail growth, strengthens the nail structure and prevents splitting of nails.
MUSCLES - Assists in gaining lean muscle, and helps muscle repair and recovery, all in all helping achieve better muscle tone.
But did you know that marine collagen also targets CELLULITE?
The lack and breakdown of collagen are the major causes of cellulite. Marine collagen supplementation strengthens the collagen fibres under the skin, assisting in smoothing out the skin and diminishing the appearance of cellulite. Vida Glow's marine collagen naturally encourages the body to rebuild and repair the fibres that cause cellulite to appear.
We recommend two servings of Vida Glow's marine collagen a day to target cellulite. Ensure that you are spreading out the servings for maximum absorption and efficacy.
Hydration is also key, so add your servings to water and aim for 2L a day. A glass of warm water and lemon with a serving of our Original Vida Glow kick starts your metabolism, aids digestion throughout the day, gives you a boost of Vitamin C (lemons are high in Vitamin C) and gets you started on your water intake for the day.
You can also add the delicious Blueberry Vida Glow to your bottle of water to sip throughout the day, which is packed with antioxidants!
Another age old remedy that targets cellulite is DRY BODY BRUSHING - and it works! The extra 5 minutes a day is well worth the investment, after all, your skin is your largest organ.
Dry body brushing removes dead skin cells and encourages new cell renewal, which results in smoother and brighter skin. It also increases the circulation to the skin which reduces the appearances of cellulite. How? It assists in improving blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, which targets the accumulated materials in your body's fat cells that leads to the dreaded "orange peel". Utilising dry skin brushing techniques helps to release toxins, and encourages the body's discharge of metabolic waste. It is even said to help muscle tone and give a more even distribution of fat deposits.
And the good news is.. it's simple!
- Start on dry skin before the shower.
- Work in gentle circular, upward motions,then longer and smoother strokes.
- Begin at your ankles and work your way up, always towards the heart, move up to the lower legs, thighs, stomach, back and arms.
- Shower to remove dead skin cells and impurities!
Try two servings of Vida Glow's marine collagen and dry body brushing for 30 days, and marvel at the results!
