Collagen Coffee Combo
TAKE THE JUGGLE OUT OF YOUR MORNING – ENJOY YOUR COLLAGEN COFFEE ON THE GLOW
Love adding our GLOW Marine Collagen to your coffee (or hot drink of choice) each morning? This combo helps you take it to go. By your mid-twenties, collagen begins to decline each year. By the age of 30 you have around half as much collagen as you had as a child resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, signs of ageing, aching joints, reduced joint mobility, and overall joint pain/inflammation. This is where supplementing the body with collagen becomes so critical – and the Collagen Coffee Combo helps you add this into your diet every day with ease.
1) GLOW MARINE HYDROLYSED COLLAGEN POWDER
We created our GLOW Marine Collagen to improve skin elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles. Further adding to its hero status, collagen acts as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory – and is an excellent gut health support as it helps build your gut lining. GLOW Marine is flavourless and can be added to any hot or cold beverage or food. We love adding ours to coffee each morning, or mixing it with other powders from the SWIISH Wellness range.
2) ON THE GO ECO COFFEE CUP (NATURAL)
The On The Go Eco Coffee Cup is made from coffee husks. Why coffee husks we hear you ask? It's an organic waste material that's produced at the milling stage of coffee production. By using this cup, you are helping to recycle hundreds of tonnes of waste material from the production of coffee.
Coffee cup size: 237ml (8oz)

Studies show that 10g per day of collagen is recommended for helping maintain skin strength and elasticity. One serving of any of our GLOW Collagen Powders equates to 5g of collagen, which is why we suggest two servings per day for optimal support. This 10g daily amount not only provides your body with adequate collagen, but assists it in generating its own. When collagen peptides are ingested, they stimulate fibroblast proliferation – the process responsible for collagen production. (Fibroblasts are a type of cell that synthesises collagen. Other than contributing to skin health, they also play an important role in wound and injury healing).

As well as helping improve the texture and complexion of skin, collagen also contains prolyl-hydroxyproline which has been shown to trigger hyaluronic acid production. Subsequently, this increases skin’s water content and hydration – particularly important in the cooler/dryer months when dry skin can become an issue.

Signs of ageing
A recent systematic review looked at 11 major studies that have assessed the use of collagen for skin health and signs of ageing. The results demonstrated a significant improvement in skin elasticity, hydration, and dermal collagen density (the amount of collagen found in skin), as well as wound healing and overall signs of ageing. The amount of collagen supplementation examined in these studies was 2.5g-10g daily. These findings also showed that collagen supplementation is generally considered safe with no reported adverse side effects.

What does it taste like?
It’s flavourless, 100% dissolvable and heat-stable – meaning it can be added to anything!
What does hydrolysed mean?
Our collagen has been through a process known as hydrolysis whereby long-chain amino acids have been broken down using water into smaller molecular components called small-chain amino acids. As a result, it is now soluble in water and more easily absorbed by the body when consumed. The common term for this is “bioavailability”. These small-chain amino acids (also known as peptides) are absorbed by the body to help regenerate lost collagen such as the collagen that occurs naturally in the deepest layers of skin known as the dermis. This in turn helps reduce wrinkles caused by ageing.
What is marine collagen and where does it come from?
The marine collagen used in our GLOW Marine Powder is Type 1 hydrolysed collagen, from marine sources. It is produced in Europe in ISO 9001 and FSSC 22000 quality accredited manufacturing facilities, thus ensuring the highest quality standards are applied. It’s then proudly packaged right here in Australia, also under the strictest of standards.How long before I see results?
According to extensive scientific research, you can expect to see results within 4 weeks of taking it daily. You should see skin become more hydrated, then an improvement in fine lines and wrinkles by about 6-8 weeks. By the 10-12 week mark, most people notice an increase in skin elasticity and firmness.
Can I have it while pregnant or breastfeeding?
Our GLOW Marine Collagen is safe to consume while pregnant and breastfeeding. However, as everyone’s situation is different, we recommend that you check with your healthcare professional to see if this powder would be beneficial for you. Please refer to the nutritional information & ingredients list.
Can I take it with other medications?
GLOW Marine is all-natural and it contains nothing artificial. We are unable to provide exact advice on whether it is safe to consume whilst taking other specific medications. As everyone’s situation is different, we recommend that you check with your healthcare professional to see if this powder would be beneficial for you. Please refer to the nutritional information & ingredients list.
Why is my collagen tub half full?
Please note that due to the consistency of the GLOW Marine Collagen Powder being extremely fine, the tub of powder that you receive may be half full. This is due to the GLOW Powder being compressed when packaged into the container. Please also note that the container itself is a larger size than our other 150g containers such as SUPERGREEN and SLEEP Powders.
