Many other collagen products include a list of ‘flavourants’ which are chemicals, preservatives and other things that don’t have to be disclosed which bring the price down for the manufacturer. The MOTHERKIND ‘GLOW’ range is 96.7% pure collagen. Factually, this would be 100% pure however we cannot factor out oxygen and hydrogen at 3.3%. In other words, Glow From Within is the purest form of collagen powder.

Pure Hydrolyzed Collagen
Collagen is an important protein source, providing the nutrients required for the many processes that take place in muscles and cells. Collagen comprises 30% of the body’s protein content and is the ‘glue’ that holds your body together – it’s the fibrous protein found in organs, eyes, muscles, skin, hair, nails, teeth, bones, blood vessels, joints, tendons, cartilage and throughout your entire digestive system.
Unfortunately, as we age, our bodies produce less collagen, leading to wrinkles, saggy skin, digestion issues, brittle hair and nails, cellulite and joint pain. From the age of 20 years, our body’s natural collagen production declines, virtually stopping by the age of 40 years which is why its important to start supplementing collagen as soon as possible.
How Does Collagen Benefit The Body?
• Collagen protein promotes weight loss as it provides a source of protein that helps in maintaining fullness.
Collagen is known to strengthen blood vessels and improve their elasticity. It does this by fortifying your blood vessels to improve their circulation throughout the body.
Collagen is required by the body to mend and rebuild connective tissue damage which helps maintain healthy muscles, skin, and joints. It also strengthens the structure of bones, tendons, cartilage, and ligaments.
Relieves Joint Pain
Inflammation in the joints can cause poor mobility and severe pain for some people. Collagen is known to increase your joint mobility and reduce pain caused by inflammation while also encouraging extra cell growth.
Improves Hair Quality
Collagen is a significant component in hair growth due to it’s ability to fight the free radicals that can degrade your hair’s texture, growth, and thickness. Replacing collagen in the body can improve the overall health and appearance of your hair.
Reduces Appearance of Cellulite
Collagen works from the inside of your body to reduce the appearance of cellulite by rebuilding and repairing the fibers that cause cellulite to appear.
Wrinkles and skin imperfections benefit greatly from collagen. Regularly ingesting collagen encourages your skin to become soft, supple and more elastic, which decreases the prevalence of wrinkles and blemishes.
Treats Leaky Gut Syndrome
Collagen helps to soothe your gut lining, healing damaged cell walls and infusing them with restorative amino acids. The significant digestive benefit of consuming collagen is that it helps form connective tissue and therefore “heals and seals” the fragile lining of your gastrointestinal tract.
Research has shown that collagen protein peptides are even more satiating than other protein types. Clinical trials have found collagen to be 40% more filling than the same quantity of whey, casein, or soy, and individuals consumed 20% less at their next meal after collagen consumption than individuals who consumed other types of protein.
• Collagen is 40% more filling than other proteins.
• Collagen supplementation helps to maintain lean body mass.
• Collagen strengthens the dermis layer of the skin, helping to hide cellulite.
