What is Collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein and the second largest substance (behind water) in the human body. Until our mid - twenties, our bodies naturally produce collagen. As this production slows and eventually ceases, we begin to see the effects of ageing. Replenishing collagen levels will help benefit the building blocks that maintain our hair, skin, nails and joints.
Vida Glow's marine collagen is a fibrous protein extracted from the scales of Deep Sea Red Snapper, sustainably sourced from the Pacific Ocean waters of Australasia.
Marine collagen is usually derived from fish and can be extracted from the scales or skin; Vida Glow uses the scales as it's richer in nutrients and collagen protein. Japanese women have used marine collagen as a secret weapon for youthful radiance for many years, and the scientific studies highlighting the benefits are plentiful.
Marine collagen works from within to promote optimal collagen function within the body, by delivering essential micronutrients to the collagen matrix below the dermis. Vida Glow's marine collagen is a low molecular weight collagen peptide powder, which is highly bioavailable, with a high absorption rate above 90%. Whereas, pills and tablets average from 20 - 30% and can take up to 40 minutes for the body to breakdown.
Collagen is a protein that is vital to maintaining healthy muscles and connective tissues. Therefore your tendons, ligaments and cartilage greatly benefit from supplementing your diet with Vida Glow's marine collagen, notably preserving joint and bone health and encouraging muscle toning and definition.
Vida Glow's marine collagen is incredibly convenient to include into your day. Simply leave some sachets at your desk, carry them in your handbag, stir a serving in your morning coffee or tea, or include it into your favourite food or drink.
Our collagen blends well into foods such as porridge, yoghurt, soup or drinks such as smoothies, shakes, juices or water and is also heat stable.
How does it work?
Once Vida Glow's marine collagen is ingested, it passes through the lining of the stomach and is absorbed by the bloodstream and distributed by blood vessels, to the dermis, the deeper layer of the skin. Here it stimulates fibroblasts, the cells responsible for collagen proliferation, thereby increasing the body's collagen levels and also its natural production of collagen. Our hydrolysed marine collagen peptides are rich in essential and non essential amino acids, which help produce collagen in the body.

Meet Anna Lahey
Co - Founder of Vida Glow
I discovered marine collagen whilst on holidays in Japan. Japanese women have been using marine collagen for its health benefits for over 300 years. They even thank the supplement for their extended life expectancy. It’s readily available in Japan, in all pharmacies and supermarkets. After taking every hair, skin and nail supplement on the market for a period of 6 years, I thought “why not try this so called miracle collagen”.
The pharmacist really sold it to me, and her skin was glowing, as are the majority of Japanese women.
My lifestyle habits hadn’t changed, and within three weeks, I began seeing results. Early on the difference was mainly to my skin. My skin had cleared, it felt significantly more hydrated and my complexion looked plumped. I was hooked!
Then when I went for my routine hair extensions, re – do, and they were all removed, my hairdresser was amazed at how much my natural hair had grown, and it was actually thicker. I was so thrilled to end my relationship with extensions. I was never a fan, however my hair would just not grow, it was so fine and whispy and I would lose so much of it.
My nails were also weak, brittle and impossible to grow. Any length would result in tears and "natural looking" acrylics were really my only option for a polished manicure. This is now a thing of the past and I finally have a natural, healthy manicure.
In the beginning I began with three servings a day, a total of 9grams. I now alternate between one (3g) to two (6g) servings a day. Post summer holidays when my hair and skin are over exposed to the sun and sea, I up the dose to three servings.
My hair, skin and nails were not alone in achieving results. I now sleep better, my cellulite has significantly diminished, my sweet tooth no longer exists, and I’ve gained great results from much gentler exercises.
These are all benefits of marine collagen, others that I’ve come across during product trials and research are; reducing fine lines and wrinkles, smoother and tighter skin, reduction in hormonal belly fat, balanced insulin levels, stronger immune health, reduced sugar and carbohydrate cravings, healthy joints, healthy circulation, healthy cholesterol, increased energy and an ability to better manage stress.
With collagen being the most abundant protein in our bodies, it is little wonder that replenishing our collagen levels has such amazing benefits for the body as a whole.
For us at Vida Glow, it is incredibly important that we're giving you the best quality pure marine collagen available. Vida Glow is a product that I personally believe in and am taking on a daily basis.
