Collagen is a protein that acts as the glue that holds our bodies together. Collagen is the second most abundant substance in our body behind water and is the building block of our tissues. Collagen makes up 75% of our skin, over 90% of our ligaments and tendons and 35% of our bones. Other structures that are primarily made of collagen are our hair, nails and cartilage.
In our mid-twenties, our collagen production begins to decrease at a rate of 2% a year and by our 50’s we’ve lost over half the amount of collagen in our bodies! This is what is known as the ageing process and is most noticeable in our skin and hair, whether it’s wrinkles, sagging skin, finer hair or grey hair.
Natural supplementation through Vida Glow increases the body’s collagen levels as well as the production of this super protein.
