I first discovered marine collagen whilst travelling in Japan, where I found collagen supplements and drinks readily available in pharmacies, supermarkets and gyms. I was even asked at a restaurant if I wanted my soup infused with collagen.

Needless to say, I was curious and found a qualified pharmacist to get some answers. She explained that Japanese women have been using marine collagen for its health benefits for over 300 years. Some even credit the supplement for their extended life expectancy.

It honestly seemed too good to be true and I took it all with a grain of salt, especially since Japanese women, in general, seemed to have amazing skin. At that point in my life, however, I struggled with hair loss and I had tried nearly every hair, skin and nail supplement on the market, with little to show for it. So I decided to give the so-called miracle supplement a go.

I began taking 9 grams of collagen each day, and within three weeks, my hair loss had dramatically decreased and my shower was no longer clogged from all the hair I had been losing.

I was truly amazed as I hadn’t made any other lifestyle changes. Even my hairdresser commented about how thick my normally fine and wispy hair had become. With all the new growth, I was finally able to remove my hair extensions for good.

After four weeks, my skin was noticeably plumper and significantly more hydrated. My nails, which had always been brittle and tear easily, were finally growing and I no longer needed acrylics for a polished manicure!

Collagen supplementation didn’t just transform my hair, skin and nails. The uneven texture on my thighs has significantly diminished, my sweet tooth vanished and I’ve gained great muscle tone from much gentler exercise. As collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies, it’s little wonder that replenishing collagen levels has such amazing benefits for the entire body. I started Vida Glow so I could share those amazing benefits with everyone.

The overwhelmingly positive feedback we received from customers worldwide about our marine collagen inspired all of us at Vida Glow to create a more holistic approach to beauty. Based on the philosophy that true beauty begins from within, Vida Glow’s offering has grown to include targeted ingestible beauty supplements made with the purest, premium quality ingredients. In my involvement across product conception to production, my goal is to create functional, active blends that not only target beauty and health but provide real results.

Vida Glow is my passion and a lot of hard work has gone into making this a reality. Our mission is, and always will be, to empower you so you can enrich your life (vida) with a little extra glow!
