The pure marine collagen present in Vida Glow is the real key to healthy hair, skin and nails.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies, making up 75% of the skin, our largest organ. Collagen is not only the building block for our hair, skin and nails, but it also forms our teeth, blood vessels, cartilage and is the main connective tissue that holds everything together.
Collagen is made in our bodies by tiny cells called “fibroblasts” and deposits itself most abundantly in the dermis, the deepest layer of the skin, as well as the eye tissues, ligaments and tendons of the joints.
As we age, our body’s production of collagen slows meaning that our skin, eyes, ligaments, tendons, teeth, cartilage, hair and nails have less of it. This is when we see the signs of ageing, as these structures no longer have the strength and support that they need and thus begin breaking down.
Replenishing collagen levels in your body with a natural supplement such as Vida Glow slows the ageing process, adds hydration, firmness and plumps the skin, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. Vida Glow also strengthens and promotes growth to your hair and nails.
