Glow & Flow provides the body with the ingredients required to help the body produce collagen. Humans naturally produce collagen, but that ability decreases after the age of about 25-30 when we begin breaking down collagen faster than we’re able to produce it. This usually results in wrinkles, hair loss, joint pain, bone loss, and other signs typical of aging
Glow & Flow is formulated with three key vegan sourced amino acids required in the collagen building process: l-glycine, l-lysine, and l-proline. Vitamin C, an antioxidant and cofactor required for the hydroxylation of both l-proline and l-lysine. Finally, the formula is balanced out with a dose of hyaluronic acid, marine trace minerals and biotin for maximum collagen production.

A common misconception we hear often is that vegan collagen is available— this is untrue. Plants do not contain or produce collagen, therefore it is never vegan (unfortunately!). Supplemental collagen is commonly sourced from cow hide, fish skin, and chicken sternum.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. It’s involved in bone building, joint health, elasticity and strength of the hair, skin, and nails, and even the integrity of our blood vessels.
Amino Acids: Collagen is a protein, and protein is made up of amino acids. L-glycine, L-lysine, and L-proline are the three most important amino acids in the collagen production process. At 2,700 mg combined, each scoop contains a sufficient dose to support healthy skin and healthy joints.
Vitamin C: In order to be utilized, glycine and proline must be hydrolyzed by vitamin C. It’s also a powerful antioxidant that helps to protect our cells from the damaging effects of free radicals. 1000mg of pH balanced vitamin C is more than enough to activate the amino acids, fend off free radicals, and support immune function.
Aquamin Soluble Marine Trace Minerals: Derived from mineral rich seaweed sourced off the pristine coast of Iceland, Aquamin contains calcium, magnesium, and 72 other trace minerals. Collagen production, connective tissue formation, bones and teeth all rely on a healthy dose of trace minerals. Minerals are also responsible for improving the pH of the body.
Hyaluronic acid: Supplemental hyaluronic acid is used to retain moisture in joints and skin. It’s naturally found in the synovial fluid between our joints and is often found in skin care products to help combat dry skin. Hyaluronic acid has been found to have effective anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties. Commonly sourced from rooster comb, we’ve naturally chosen a 100% vegan version.
Biotin: Commonly found in beauty supplements, biotin or B7 is known for its importance in strong healthy hair, skin, and nails. Though biotin will not typically solve all of your hair, skin and nail woes, a biotin deficiency will result in an increase in hair loss and weakening of the nails.
