Every ingredient in our new Rise & Glow Collagen Tonic explained - including why we chose to include each!


Get Ready to Rise & Glow ✨

We created Rise & Glow Collagen to bring you all the beautifying benefits of marine collagen, in a refreshing drink you can enjoy daily as part of your morning routine.

With Organic berries, a rich source of Vitamin C and added hyaluronic acid - it has the perfect combination of ingredients to help you nurture your inner glow from within.

What's more, it includes 100% natural ingredients that were chosen to bring their unique benefits to Rise & Glow Collagen. We don't add any fillers, bulkers, artificial ingredients or sweeteners.

So we'd love to introduce you to every single one of the ingredients in Rise & Glow Collagen, together with some great reasons why we chose them.

 What is Rise & Glow? Every ingredient explained!

Rise & Glow Collagen: Ingredient Spotlight 🌺

 

Wild Caught Marine Collagen

Our marine collagen peptides are sourced from wild caught, MSC certified white fish. The fish we source are free from GMO feeds, antibiotics and hormones - for the best quality and nutritional profile.

Marine collagen is simply one ingredient - no sneaky added fillers or bulkers. It is also a pure Type 1 Collagen, which is perfect for supporting skin, hair and nail health.

As the main ingredient in Rise & Glow Collagen, marine collagen will enable you to glow from the inside out.


Organic Acai Berry Powder

We wanted to create a natural berry flavoured beauty tonic, with no added sugar or sweeteners.

Acai berry not only brings a lovely-reddy purple colour to the tonic, but it also adds natural flavour and heaps of nutrition too.

Known as a superfood, it is higher in fat and lower in sugar compared with other fruits. Acai also contains antioxidants, Vitamin C, Calcium, Iron and Potassium.

And you guessed it - our Acai Berry powder is 100% Acai with no bulkers or fillers, and it's certified Organic too.


Acerola Berry Powder

Vitamin C helps with collagen synthesis, therefore it was important for us to find a natural source of Vitamin C to go alongside our Marine Collagen in this beauty tonic.

There is a whopping 40mg of natural Vitamin C per serve of Rise & Glow which is an impressive 50% of your NRV (Nutrient Reference Value) per day.

We use natural Acerola Berries, a luscious pinky red fruit from Brazil which are packed with Vitamin C and have a high antioxidant capacity.



Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid is Paleo and Keto friendly and is a natural occurring substance in the body (a bit like collagen).

Our Hyaluronic acid is produced by naturally fermenting certain types of bacteria - without the need to add anything artificial or any chemicals in the process.

You may be familiar with the name of this ingredient as it has become a popular addition to cosmetic products in recent years.

Although topical hyaluronic acid treatments take effect quickly (e.g. injections), this effect will gradually wear-off. On the other hand, research has found that the benefits of ingesting hyaluronic acid within supplements can be better maintained by taking them continuously.

We use hyaluronic acid in our Rise & Glow Collagen to support skin moisture and suppleness, but it also has the added benefit of supporting joint health too!


Organic Baobab Powder

Baobab is high in Vitamin C, antioxidants and is a great prebiotic due its fibre content.

A study by Oxford Brookes University showed that baobab significantly reduced the rate at which sugar was released into the blood after digestion. As such, baobab is considered ideal for those following a Low GI diet and it could also be beneficial for people with Type 2 Diabetes. 

Baobab also adds to the flavour of the Rise & Glow Collagen, with a citrus sweet flavour that contributes to the tonic's refreshing taste.


Organic Blueberry, Raspberry & Blackcurrant Powder

We searched high and low for berry powders that were simply one ingredient to help provide the mixed berry flavour of Rise & Glow Collagen.

It was important for us that the berries did not have bulkers, fillers or grain-based additives.

The berries that we use in this recipe are 100% berry and freeze-dried to lock in the nutrients, before being ground into a fine powder.

The berries bring a lovely flavour and colour to the tonic as well as an impressive nutritional profile! 👇
  • Blueberry contains Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Manganese and Potassium

  • Raspberry contains Vitamin C, A, Riboflavin and Thiamine

  • Blackcurrant contains Vitamin C, A, Calcium, Phosphorus, Riboflavin and more

Hibiscus Powder

Hibiscus powder is made from the Hibiscus flower. The flower is a beautiful pink colour, and when dried has a sweet, cranberry-like taste.

It is also packed with beta-carotene, Vitamin C and anthocyanin to support your overall health and wellness.

The Hibiscus brings a light, fresh flavour to Rise & Glow Collagen with 100% dried and ground Hibiscus flower - no bulkers or fillers.


Glycine

Glycine is an amino acid (which is present naturally in collagen). You'll also find glycine as an ingredient in our Collagen Creamer products, so we have a great article here which explains why we use it:

👉 What is glycine and why do we use it?

It can help support the stimulation of serotonin, supports the removal of toxins from the body and supports nerve signal transmission. Some also link glycine to help supporting sleep.

Glycine is a unique amino acid in that it has a sweet taste, without being a sweetener or a sugar. We add glycine into our Rise & Glow Collagen to improve the taste and also provide the benefits of glycine as an amino acid - win, win!

 

When it comes to ingredient quality and nutrient-density - we don't compromise! So you can start your day with a deliciously refreshing beauty tonic that will help you to Rise & Glow Collagen, safe in the knowledge that everything in the recipe is bringing you bags of goodness - beautiful!
