The Vida Glow Birthday Cake

At Vida Glow, we believe that birthdays are a reason for celebration – not cause for feeling distressed and upset.

That’s because getting older doesn’t mean you have to look older. Our bioavailable Marine Collagen works to restore collagen levels and stimulate collagen synthesis, which slows as we get older. When taken daily, our marine collagen is scientifically proven to promote visibly healthier and more youthful hair, skin and nails.

With marine collagen, you really can have your cake and eat it too!
