Why is our Meno® PRO GLOW Collagen powder great for Menopausal women?Collagen is a natural skeletal protein and is one of the body's most abundant components, making up nearly 80% of the body's skin, muscles and connective tissue. It is thought that from the age of 25, your body's collagen levels deplete at a rate of 1.5% per annum. This means that by the age of 35 your body will have lost 15% and by 45, 30%, 50 its a staggering 50%. It is at this stage that you really start to notice a change in your skin's elasticity and texture.
Our Meno® PRO GLOW Collagen Powder with Essentials vitamins helps to boost that lost collagen. Each scoop provides a massive 10g of Marine collagen, for plumping the skin back up, with Biotin for hair growth and skin renewal, Folic Acid, Vitamins C, B1, B6, B12, B5, Riboflavin Hyaluronic acid for skin, fine lines and wrinkle reduction.
FAST ABSORPTION COLLAGEN - Meno® PRO GLOW Collagen Powder with Essentials vitamins uses a fast absorption material containing a mixture of peptides with spectrum range of molecular weights including dipeptides and tripeptides. The low molecular weight grades allow enhanced absorption into the bloodstream after digestion to ensure you get maximum utilisation of your collagen supplement.Why Hydrolysed Marine Collagen?
The percentage of collagen that is actually absorbed into your body when ingested (bioavailability) is critical to the effectiveness of the supplement. Bioavailability largely determines how well any nutrient you ingest works.
The issue with collagen molecules is that they are enormous, so unless they’ve been hydrolysed, they are simply too big to be absorbed when ingested, and thus never reach the dermis, which is the underlying layer of the skin where collagen lives. Our collagen absorbs quickly into the body and is allowed to make its way to the areas it is needed most
Our Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is Sodium hyaluronate - the salt form of HA and is a water-soluble salt that holds 1000 times its weight in water. This way the HA is more stable and less likely to oxidise. Sodium hyaluronate has a much lower molecular size than standard HA, which allows it to penetrate better.
BenefitsWhy we LOVE Our Meno® PRO GLOW Collagen Powder with Essentials vitamins.
10g Hydrolysed Marine Collagen - 93% protein - Types I & III Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid Biotin Vitamin B Complex Vitamin C.
Why Vitamin C? Without Vitamin C, the body can't form collagen, making this antioxidant an essential cofactor in collagen synthesis.
Why Biotin and Vitamin B complex? Biotin and the Vitamin B family are proven by science to contribute to the maintenance of normal skin and hair, regulate hormones, reduce tiredness and fatigue as well as reduce the loss of bone mineral. All things us women need help with as we age so we thought they would be a welcome addition.
Different types of collagen we use:
- Type 1 Collagen: Minimise fine lines and wrinkles and improves skin elasticity and hydration. Not only does it help rebuild your muscles, eyes, bones, and spine, it’s also good for strengthening your nails and helping you grow stronger, thicker hair. Type 1 collagen is most abundant in Marine Collagen, as used in our Meno Collagens.
- Type III Collagen: Is found in large quantities in your intestines, muscles, blood vessels, and the uterus. It’s most often used with type I collagen for gut healing and to improve skin elasticity and hydration.
HAIR, SKIN AND NAILS
One review of 11 studies focusing mostly on women found that taking 3-10 grams of collagen per day led to improvements in skin elasticity and hydrationStudies show that ingesting Hyaluronic acid leads to an improvement in the appearance of skin by softening wrinkles and increasing luster. Biotin contributes to the maintenance of normal hair and skin.Vitamin B12 contributes to the maintenance of normal skin.
A review of five studies with more than 500 participants with osteoarthritis found that taking about 10 grams of collagen daily led to significant improvement in joint stiffness and self-reported joint pain.
Biotin, Vitamin B3, B1, Folic Acid and Vitamin C contribute to normal psychological function.
Vitamins B2, B5, B6, Folic Acid and Vitamin C contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Vitamin B1, B2, B3, B5, Folic Acid, Biotin and Vitamin C all contribute to normal energy-yielding metabolism which is needed for all functions and activities of the body, including physical activity and exercise.
Vitamin B6 contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity.
Vitamin B12, B6 and Folic Acid contribute to the normal function of the immune system.

How long does collagen take to work?
How Long Does Collagen Take to Work on Skin?
In 2015, a study published by the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology found that oral collagen peptide supplementation resulted in the decrease of visible signs of skin ageing. The study showed there was a decrease in the number of wrinkles in the skin, alongside a substantial increase in skin moisture. In terms of time taken to see these results, the study found minor results by week 4, and major results at 12 weeks, with wrinkles decreasing up to 31.2% in the clinical trial.
So, when it comes to skin, results time does vary from person to person. You may be one of the lucky ones who see results within a week. However, this particular concludes that collagen will work from 4 weeks and show maximum results within 12 weeks.
