Collagen – Skin + Joints Combo
THE ULTIMATE COLLAGEN COMBO – FOR RADIANT SKIN & TO HELP YOUR BODY FUNCTION WITH EASE
By your mid-twenties, collagen begins to decline – all over the body – by 1-2% each year. By the age of 30 you have around half as much collagen as you were born with resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, signs of ageing, aching joints, reduced joint mobility, and overall joint pain/inflammation. This is where supplementing becomes important. Did you know that there is more than one type of collagen? GLOW was designed with Type 1 collagen to support youthful, radiant skin and MOVE was made using Type 2 collagen to help with joint strength and mobility. This powder duo helps you support both.
1) GLOW MARINE HYDROLYSED COLLAGEN POWDER (150g)
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) MOVE HYDROLYSED COLLAGEN FOR JOINTS (150g)
Our MOVE Collagen helps protect joints by reducing inflammation, assisting in the relief of pain and working to enhance the durability of joints. MOVE promotes cartilage lubrication and helps reduce inflammation in the synovial fluid, thereby assisting joint movement. MOVE Collagen is also 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.

GLOW Marine Collagen Powder – Anti-ageing & hydration support
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.

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.

MOVE Hydrolysed Collagen For Joints – Joint support & anti-inflammation
Clinical studies show that hydrolysed joint-specific collagen can stimulate collagenic tissue regeneration by increasing not only collagen synthesis but other important joint-supporting compounds as well. Other recent studies have demonstrated the ability of hydrolysed collagen to help reduce/prevent joint pain and even bone density loss. It is these results (along with the safety of collagen supplementation) that make it a highly effective and recommended support for joint/bone degeneration.

Nutricion hospitalaria, 32 Suppl 1, 62–66.)
Collagen is highly anti-inflammatory. It can help protect joints by reducing inflammation and may assist in the relief of joint-related pain that is often caused by inflammation in the synovial fluid. Synovial fluid contains different proteins (including collagen) that help lubricate joints and reduce friction – supporting ease of movement.

Can I mix these two powders together?
You can, however, it is recommended to have them at least 30 minutes apart to optimise absorption. Note: The powders will still work if taken together.
What do each of the powders taste like?
Both these collagen powders are flavourless, dissolvable and heat stable, meaning they can be added to anything.
What is the difference between MOVE Collagen and GLOW Marine Collagen?
MOVE Collagen is bovine (beef) collagen. It contains Type 2 collagen to help protect and repair joints, enhance their durability, and assist in the relief of pain. MOVE promotes cartilage lubrication and helps reduce inflammation in the synovial fluid thereby assisting joint movement.
GLOW Marine Collagen is marine (fish) collagen. It contains Type 1 collagen to help improve skin elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles. Other benefits include helping to reduce signs of ageing and increasing skin moisture levels, helping to give skin that “GLOW”.
What does hydrolysed mean?
Our collagen powders have 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 the 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.
What is bovine collagen?
The bovine collagen used in the MOVE Powder is Type 2 hydrolysed collagen, from beef. 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 collagen daily. The key here is consistency, ensure you are taking collagen every day for best results.
