Vida Glow Marine Collagen



As we age, we notice small but gradual changes in our skin, nails and body such as dry and/or less firm skin, age spots, brittle nails and hair lacking in lustre. Sometimes skincare can only do so much because we have to replenish the loss of collagen which is the most abundant protein in our bodies, amounting up to 70%.

Last month, Vida Glow sent me a 30 day supply of pineapple flavoured marine collagen. Vida Glow is a natural marine collagen supplement, which comes in powder form. You can just add water to the sachet (ideally in the morning before breakfast) or stir it into your favourite food or drink.

My pineapple flavoured Vida Glow has only a hint of pineapple taste and definitely won’t taste of pineapple even if stirred into tea or coffee. It can be stirred into foods such as porridge, yoghurt, soup or drinks such as smoothies, shakes, juices or water and is heat stable. Being a 100% natural product our Original Vida Glow marine collagen contains no artificial flavours, colours, additives or preservatives. It is also free from wheat, gluten, allergens, soy, lactose, dairy, sugar, carbohydrates and fat. The flavoured Vida Glow collagen powders contain natural fruit flavours and come with the added goodness of vitamins for an extra dose of antioxidants.

Before I started on Vida Glow last month, my nails were very brittle. They were breaking easily much to my horror. Since I started on Vida Glow, I am pleased to say that my nails have strengthened and there'[s been no breakage. Also, my skin feels less dry but I guess the most remarkable improvement for me is that my nails haven’t broken once since I started on Vida Glow.

Some marine collagen drinks can smell very fishy and I mean that literally, to the extent that I have to pinch my nose when I consume it but Vida Glow Marine Collagen is extremely palatable and easy to drink since it smells pleasantly fruity rather than a scent associated with marine life.

Vida Glow Marine Collagen is a fibrous protein extracted from the scales of Deep Sea Red Snapper, sustainably sourced from the Western Central Pacific Ocean waters of Australasia. Marine collagen can be extracted from either the scale or skin but Vida Glow extracts from the scale because it is richer in nutrients and collagen protein.

Vida Glow is an Australian company and their collagen is “Made in Japan”, and is the highest grading form of pure marine collagen available
