When it comes to gut health, it’s not just our digestion that can be affected. Studies show that Aa healthy gut is vital for overall health and wellbeing. From a strong immune system, to clear, healthy skin, a happy mood, a healthy brain, heart and good sleep, a happy gut means a happy body and mind.

When this happens, our digestion can be significantly affected. This can change the way we react to certain foods, impact on the amount of nutrients we absorb, as well as cause overall abdominal discomfort and upset our bowel patterns too.
Happy Gut gut health powder is beneficial for everyone to take to support digestion and overall gut health, ingredients such as L- Glutamine helps maintain the integrity of our intestinal wall while the prebiotic Hawke’s Bay apple fibre and chia seeds provide a good source of fibre to promote the growth and activity of good gut bacteria.

FibaFit™ is a functional fibre derived from Hawke’s Bay apples. It is a rich source of both soluble and insoluble fibre which can help to bulk stools and allow for regular and comfortable bowel motions. It is also a source of antioxidants and vitamin D, which is also involved in supporting a healthy gut lining. As a good source of prebiotic fibre, it helps to feed the good bacteria in our gut, helping with a healthy intestinal microbial balance. Studies have shown that apple fibre can increase a type of fatty acid in the body called butyrate, which can decrease the number of harmful bacteria in the intestine.

YES! Absolutely, we recommend males use Two Islands Collagen Beauty Powder to help with hair, skin and nail health.
Two Islands Collagen Beauty Powder contains hydrolysed marine collagen peptides which is derived from fish skin. Because of their small particle size, hydrolysed collagen can reach the small intestine in the form of collagen peptides. Here they are broken down into smaller particles (dipeptides and tripeptides) and free amino acids where they can then be absorbed and distributed throughout the body via the bloodstream.
Previous research has shown that collagen derived peptides are resistant to gastrointestinal digestion and enzymes, which means they can be absorbed into the bloodstream
Once absorbed through the small intestine, collagen peptides and free amino acids travel through the bloodstream to various parts of the body, including the dermis (the deepest layer of the skin) where research in animal models have shown they can remain for up to 14 days. Several studies have shown that collagen peptides can be efficiently absorbed and distributed to the skin, where they can stimulate fibroblasts (specialised cells in connective tissue) to increase the density and diameter of collagen fibres, as well as increase hyaluronic acid production and protect against UVA radiation.
Supplementing with marine collagen has been shown to increase collagen production, skin hydration and moisture, improve skin elasticity and reduce the signs of aging.
