As you may have seen on my social media pages a few weeks ago, Vida Glow gifted me their Natural Marine Collagen. I have actually been taking collagen as a hair, skin and nails supplement for years and today I want to tell you why!
Before I started taking collagen powder a few years ago I had very fine, thin hair that grew at a snails pace. Although I ate plenty of nourishing “beauty foods” and looked after my hair with natural products and did coconut oil hair masks once a week, I still found that my hair would become brittle easily and looked sun damaged and dry.
When I started taking collagen powder I noticed a big improvement! Within the first month my hair felt really soft and looked shiny. My hair started to grow much quicker and my nails became longer and stronger. I even saw an improvement in my skin! My completion became clearer and my skin looked and felt even smoother.
Collagen is one of the strongest proteins found in nature. Our body naturally produces collagen until our twenties when the production of this substance begins to slow down and eventually ceases. Japanese women have been taking collagen for its benefits for over 300 years! Supplementing with collagen will help to replenish the collagen levels in your body, which promotes healthy hair, strong nails and youthful looking skin.
How to take collagen powder as a supplement:
Vida Glow Marine Collagen is an oral supplement. The Original Vida Glow is tasteless and odourless which makes it easy to include into any food or drink. However you may like to try their Blueberry, Peach, Mango or Pineapple flavours (especially if you’re taking the supplement in a smoothie or juice) Yummy!!!
I personally take one sachet three times a day in a cup of herbal tea, usually half an hour before or after breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Of course babe please keep in mind that what works for me might not be 100% right for you! Everyone is different and our needs are unique to us. Our hair is constantly changing depending on the weather, our hormones, if we’re nourishing our body with the highest quality nutrients and if we’re supporting our hair health with high-quality, supplements and natural products.
