HEALTHIER & YOUNGER LOOKING SKIN
Collagen is the main structural protein responsible for your skin’s suppleness. It acts as scaffolding to support skin layers, ensuring your skin retains its firmness and elasticity. Collagen supplements have been shown to have the most effective results when combined with certain vitamins and minerals. That’s why our ViaCollagen Glow contains 5000mg of clinically tested marine collagen enriched by 1000mg vitamin C, 80 Mg of hyaluronic acid, 20ug biotin and 5mg of zinc. This combination of ingredients is an effective anti-aging blend which promotes healthy and younger looking skin.
STRONGER & SHINER HAIR
Collagen is made up of certain amino acids. These amino acids are key building blocks for keratin which is the main structural material of hair, nails and skin. The hair cuticle absorb keratin resulting in hair that looks full and glossy. Keratin is vital for the hair strength making it more manageable, fine hair will be reinforced and frizzy curly hair more responsive to treatment. Collagen is often combined with biotin (vitamin H) which improves your body’s keratin infrastructure. Biotin is also one of several B vitamins that supports a healthy metabolism.
SMOOTHER & STRONGER NAILS
Arginine, an amino acid contained within collagen, promotes healthy nails by carrying Nitric oxide through the blood vessels to the nail bed. Your nails are also made of keratin.
EFFECTIVE MUSCLE RECOVERY
1%-10% of our muscles are made of collagen. When combined with resistance training, taking collagen supplements has been shown to help increase muscle mass. According to one study published in the British Journal of Nutrition [website]
the high amino acid profile of collagen supplements makes collagen ideal for muscle repair and recovery, making it an essential component of workout nutrition.
STRONGER JOINTS & LIGAMENTS
All our connective tissues such as joints, ligaments and tendons are 90% collagen. Collagen promotes the growth and repair of cartilage, which is a firm, rubbery material that covers the end of bones. In joint tissue the robust presence of collagen offers integrity to the function of the joint, as well as reliving joint inflammation and pain. We have formulated the Ultimate Joints Support supplement (ViaCollagen Active) with bovine hydrolysed collagen peptides, glucosamine sulphate, chondroitin, MSM and other key ingredients to promote healthy joints and ligaments.
IMPROVED GUT HEALTH
Collagen contains essential amino acids that are needed to repair and rebuild the intestinal wall and help prevent a leaky gut. Leaky guts can seep toxic waste and bacteria as well as undigested food particles into the blood stream. Symptoms of leaky gut include chronic diarrhoea, poor immune system and headaches. Collagen helps strengthen the gut wall, making it less permeable and more likely to retain nutrients and food.
