Vida Glow offers a range of natural supplements that nourish hair, skin and nails from within. Our marine collagen is pure hydrolysed collagen protein and comes in powder form, making it incredibly easy to stir into your favourite food or drink.
Vida Glow's Beauty Blend is a superfood blend using all natural ingredients; Manuka Honey, Blueberries, Raw Cacao, Chia Seeds, Flaxseeds, Pumpkin Seeds and Probiotics. The Beauty Blend is a nutritious addition to our marine collagen range. This powder is rich in the essential vitamins and minerals necessary for optimal hair, skin and nail conditions. It contains no collagen, and is therefore suitable for vegetarians.
Vida means life and with every serving the aim is to give you a little extra “life glow”.
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 and nails.
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.
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.
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.
At Vida Glow we are committed to quality. We are an Australian company, and every batch of our blends are quality and safety tested by an independent NATA accredited laboratory in Sydney, Australia.

I originally accepted the Vida Glow challenge in my life to try and improve my overall wellness, and to try and encourage me to make healthier choices in my life. I thought this would be a good kickstarter product. I've never been good at remembering to take supplements or vitamins, so I took the Vida Glow to work and left it on my desk with my water bottle, so there was no way I could forget. Over the course of 2 months I added Vida glow into my water, now I only had one case which contains 30 sachets but I was moving in between so I was on for about 10 tens, off for 2 weeks and then finished the rest off after that, so that could also make my results different to someone who consumed theres consistently.
Things I did notice though, were that my baby hair around my hairline was growing longer, and those hairs have never grown before. My skin appeared less blotchy, normally when I look at my skin up close I see alot of blotchiness from my rosacea, it started to appear more consistently even. I'm usually a slug in the morning but I would wake up with my energy.
I had the blueberry flavour, which I found tasted great, and it was very easy to drink. They also come in a range of other great flavours: peach, mango, pineapple, a beauty blend and the original flavour which is tasteless.
