Frequently ask question
What is collagen?
Collagen is actually the most abundant protein in the human body, making up approximately 75% of who we are.
How does Vida Glow Marine Collagen work?
Vida Glow Marine Collagen works from within your body to achieve a high absorption. Our collagen is a low molecular weight collagen peptide powder. Once the collagen is absorbed, it is passed through the lining of the stomach and is absorbed by the bloodstream. It is then distributed through blood vessels to the dermis, the deeper layer of the skin, stimulating fibroblast proliferation and increasing the body’s natural production of collagen.
What is the shipping policy?
All our products are manufactured and directly shipped from Europe. We do not compromise on quality and this is our guarantee to customers.
Why Vida Glow Marine Collagen?
Our low molecule weight peptide powder form is highly bioavailable, with a high absorption rate above 90%. Bioavailability is an indicator of how easy how easy it is for your body to consume. Most collagen products in the market have an absorption rate of only 20-30%. Pills and tablets instead of powder form deliver even worse.
You can therefore do some quick calculation. A premium collagen does cost more, but at the same time it is 3-4 times more effective.
More importantly though, why spending on collagen products that do not meet your need and will not reach your goal?
How to include the collagen into my day?
Mix it in your morning coffee or tea or include it in your favourite food or drink. Our marine collagen powder blend very well into foods such as porridge, yoghurt, soup or drinks such as smoothies, shakes, juices or water and is also heat stable.
You will see faster and more effective results when taking the marine collagen daily.
Our commitment to only safe and clean sources
Vida Glow's marine collagen is sustainably sourced French collagen extracted from the scales of ocean fish. We use the scales as it is the best source of nutrients and collagen protein. Each new batch of our marine collagen undergoes stringent testing to ensure it is free of heavy metals, contaminants and other toxins prior to being made available to customers.
We do not mix in any low quality collagen from shellfish or jellyfish as some other products do. Our marine collagen is pure, high-quality ocean fish collagen.
All our products are manufactured and shipped from Europe.
What results can I expect from the products? Is it scientifically proven?
According to scientific research and clinical trials, you can expect to see results in 3 – 4 weeks of taking the product on a daily consecutive level. At this time skin becomes more hydrated, followed by a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles in 6 weeks. By the 9th week you’ll see a noticeable increase in skin elasticity and firmness.
Most of our customers have seen changes in 4 – 6 weeks in skin, hair and nails, with some achieving results in as little as 2 weeks. Performance is especially noticeable with higher age group.
We recommend taking Vida Glow's marine collagen daily. You will see faster and more effective results.
Taking 6 – 9 grams a day (2 – 3 scoops) will accelerate results. If you are taking more than one serving per day, be sure to spread them out, rather than taking all servings at once, this ensures maximum absorption.
You can also see more researches validating such findingson collagen products from the National Institute of Health website - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23949208.
How does Vida Glow Marine Collagen compare to other collagen products or collagen consumed through normal diet?
Surely, you can get collagen through your diet. But the issue is the digestion and absorption ability of collagen through diet into your body are usually much weaker. “Bioavailability” is the term used to describe this, which means how easy it is for your body to take in. The more highly bioavailable, the better. Vida Glow’s marine collagen is broken down into small particle sizes, which results in its high absorption rate.
