Natural Beauty from the Inside Out


There is a growing awareness of the role of nutrition for our skin health. The skin is the largest organ in the body, comprising about 10–15% of our body weight so it is important to look after this vital organ as much as we can. The skin’s role is to help protect the body from the dangers of ultraviolet rays, pollution and infections. Our skin constantly renews itself with the outermost layer, the epidermis, effectively remaking itself every month.


In general, as skin ages it begins to show a decrease in epidermal thickness. The layer decreases in thickness by about 1% per year throughout adult life, after you reach the age of about 50 skin collagen decreases further by about 2% per year.


To support the protective function and continual renewing of the epidermal layer requires a constant flow of energy and nutrients to our skin. This can be done through a healthy nutritious diet, quality supplementation, maintaining hydration and protecting our skin from environmental factors such as sun damage and pollution.


Nutraviva Marine Collagen powder has a very low molecular weight and is optimised to stimulate collagen metabolism and synthesis, support skin elasticity and hydration. This natural ability to support the beauty nutrition makes marine collagen an ideal supplement for beauty improvements such as firmer, smoother looking skin with few lines, stronger nail growth and healthier hair.


Marine collagen is highly regarded in the beauty industry for re-hydrating skin, protecting against UV light, restoring fine lines around the eyes, for beauty, including healthier hair, more youthful skin and stronger nails. It can also help support the reduction of cellulite, wrinkles and stretch marks.


Nutraviva Marine Collagen naturally supports:

  • Exercise and injury recovery
  • Inflammation and pain reduction
  • Healthy bones and joints
  • Protein supplementation


Adding marine collagen to your daily routine is super easy. Simply add 1 teaspoon (5 grams) twice a day, or one tablespoon once a day to your favourite juice, smoothie, cooking and even to hot drinks such as coffee or chai.
