Go Healthy Collagen 

Collagen for hair, skin and nails

Collagen powder is everywhere and everything right now. Go Healthy has launched two excellent options containing additional ingredients to help your skin, hair and nails. 

GO Healthy GO Royal Jelly with Collagen contains a blend of Royal Jelly with Hydrolysed Collagen.

GO Royal Jelly with Collagen contains Royal Jelly which is considered one of nature’s best secrets, and is traditionally used as a general nutrient tonic. Royal Jelly has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties so this is a double whammy of looking after yourself. There is no after taste to the tablets and within a few days makes an impact with a softer hair.

GO Collagen Powder NZ Blackcurrant contains a beautiful powdered blend of marine collagen, rosehips, grapeseed and hyaluronic acid, yes the stuff you typically add topically – but it’s also good for joints (as is collagen).  This is a power pack of goodness that tastes like berries, adding a potent flavour dimension, but equally good simply added to water. 

Available from Chemist Warehouse 
$39.99 for Collagen and NZ Blackcurrant
$28.99 for Collagen and Royal Jelly
