Sip and Glow

Collagen is responsible for the skin’s strength and resilience as well as the smooth, plump appearance of young healthy skin. Vida Glow Marine Collagen is high-grade hydrolysed collagen, made up of small peptides containing amino acids, which are easily absorbed and distributed by the blood stream through the whole body and skin. Every sachet of Vida Glow Marine Collagen helps your body to form new collagen structures.

Vida Glow provides the amino acid building blocks and also stimulates the production of new collagen, elastin and moisture.

Make the most of your Vida Glow by blending a sachet in these delicious and nutrient rich smoothies – which are the perfect combination for optimum radiant skin results.

Carotenoid-rich fruits and veggies are essential for maintaining healthy skin. Combining carotenoid rich veggies and fruits with healthy fats (yoghurt or avocado) maximise the nutrient quality, and what better way to do this than making a Vida Glow Smoothie.

For luminous skin – make Kale, Spinach, Carrots and Vida Glow your Best Friend!
