Monica shares her glow+ story

We’ve all got that friend who glows on the inside and out and for me (Pura Collagen Founder, Jennifer Mo) that’s Monica.

She’s as kind and considerate as she is stunning to look at. She is athletic, powerful and energetic, but in our time sharing our woes, she would often talk of her postnatal hair loss and how it affected her confidence, especially when she would pull her  hair back for sport and fitness activities.

What started with her first born effectively left her with a receding hairline. She was also lamenting that manicures & pedicures would peel and leave her nails more damaged. Our wine and coffee chats covered a lot of topics and the ups & downs of womanhood in our 40’s. Here’s her story:


Age: 47

Duration of condition in years: 12

Condition background:  With the birth of my first child, over 12 years ago, I suffered from postnatal hair loss at the two top corners of my forehead. It has never grown back – I resigned myself to having these balding patches and was horrified at the prospect of significant balding in my later years.

Success Story: That was until I started taking Pura Glow!! I am beyond delighted. I can distinctively see what is a two-month growth of hair coming through – having my hair in a ponytail is now a delight rather than a reminder of what having 3 children did to me! I cannot recommend Pura Glow enough to anyone who has postnatal hair loss or thinning hair. Not only that, my toenails, which were once ridged and flaky are now smooth and healthy! I can wear shellac varnish with no damage done to my nails either (they used to then split and it would take them months to recover). Thank you PURA!!! Amazing product, I recommend it to anyone.



When I started working on glow+ I was so focused on my own beauty needs, but quickly realised how it could universally deliver benefits to my wider friend group and beyond. Witnessing Monica’s transformation has been nothing short of awe inspiring. Her results are backed by science too.

The different positive effects of VERISOL® are shown in a recent study. The study shows a decrease of cracked and/or chipped nails after 2 months of treatment, reaching a decrease of 42 % after 6 months. Compared to the control group, the nail growth speed is increasing. VERISOL® led to a statistically significant improvement in nail growth after 3 months of treatment. At the same time, there’s a notable improvement in nail peeling and a clearly decreased nail edge irregularity. 80 % of the patients were completely satisfied and satisfied with VERISOL® treatment. 75 % of the women perceive their nails as longer, 71 % said their nails grew faster and became longer.

The above study and results not only mirror Monica’s results, but mine and several of my female and male friends. My own nails are so long and strong that I sometimes get irritated that I must trim them AGAIN & AGAIN! What rings through time and time is that this powerful little peptide packs a lot of punch and definitely helps us perimenpausals recover our glow.
