Our Peach Vida Glow marine collagen is the perfect compliment to your water bottle, fruit tea, juice, yoghurt or morning porridge.
This delicious addition to our range contains natural Peach flavour and natural Peach Juice powder. Peaches are rich in phytochemicals called phenols that act as antioxidants. Both peaches and marine collagen are rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants are essential for healthy hair, skin, and nails as they help protect cells from damage.
Ageing begins to occur when there is an imbalance of pro – oxidants, free radicals, in the skin’s cells. The sun’s UV rays can accelerate free radical production while at the same time depleting antioxidants. Photo ageing happens when damage from UV rays affect skin cell function, usually reflected in rougher, drier, wrinkled and less elastic skin. Antioxidants are vital to skin health as they protect skin cells by counteracting free radical activity. Vitamins A and C, both found in Peaches are the most notable in protecting and hydrating the skin.
Peaches are a source of both Vitamin A and B – carotene. B – carotene is a provitamin, which converts to Vitamin A inside the body. Vitamin C is a super vitamin for hair, skin, and nails as it assists in the body’s production and formation of collagen, as well as helping with the absorption of collagen in your system. Vitamin C skin health benefits are largely attributed to its role in supporting healthy collagen. Collagen works with elastin to support the skin; it provides firmness and strength, whilst elastin gives the skin flexibility. The antioxidant effect of this vitamin is required for connective tissue synthesis inside the body.
Peaches are wonderfully delicious and naturally very low in calories, 100g grams of a peach has only 39 calories, so perhaps you could consider them as an afternoon snack alongside your Vida Glow. They contain no saturated fats and are packed with numerous health promoting compounds, minerals, and vitamins.
Peaches are rich in many vital minerals such as potassium, fluoride and iron. However, 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 deeper layer of the skin, as well as the eye tissues, ligaments, and tendons.
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.
With the added goodness of natural peaches, this flavour is the perfect natural hair, skin and nail supplement.
