Mermaid Squad is the distributor of authentic JSHealth vitamins, Motherkind and just recently Be Bright products in South Africa. This small sideline business has quickly grown into a success for Tarryn who has seen first hand how these vitamins are changing peoples lives - hair, skin, anxiety, health.
JS Health vitamins are produced in Australia and it is therefore important that you purchase them from a legitimate distributor.
Jessica Sepel is a best-selling health author, founder of JSHealth and one of Australia's most sought-after health and wellness experts. After years of suffering from fad dieting, calorie counting and body image issues, she discovered a love for nutrition and transformed her lifestyle.
She's passionate about sharing the health message and encouraging others to live a balanced lifestyle filled with nourishing whole foods and recipes. Jessica spent two years developing the JSHealth vitamins in order to address common health concerns.
Many other collagen products include a list of ‘flavourants’ which are chemicals, preservatives and other things that don’t have to be disclosed in order to reduce the price for the manufacturer. The MOTHERKIND ‘GLOW’ range is 96.7% pure collagen. Factually, this would be 100% pure however we cannot factor out oxygen and hydrogen at 3.3%. In other words, Glow From Within is the purest form of collagen powder.
Be Bright’s hydrolysed collagen powder is 100% pure and highly bio available. This means that your body can absorb the collagen very quickly. The body recognises that it is identical to the collagen you already have, which is steadily decreasing in supply. Introducing and maintaining a daily intake of Be Bright’s collagen will feed your body with the amino acids that it needs to stabilise, strengthen and improve your collagen structures which are already breaking down.
WHY I LOVE THEM
There has been quite a hype around these vitamins on social media for some time now and influencers were sharing them as their secret to long and healthy locks. When I came across Mermaid Squad distributing the original vitamins in South Africa I couldn't resist giving them a try. I have found the vitamins I have tried to be incredibly effective although I haven't necessarily stayed on all of them continuously. I love that there isn't just one multi vitamin but rather you are able to target your concerns.
New products are being released into the range regularly and I am excited to try the new healthy products.

JS HEALTH ESSENTIALS BUNDLE
DAY AND NIGHT, COME RAIN OR SHINE
What you get:
Hair + Energy formula - 60 capsules
Detox + Debloat formula - 60 tablets
I take one Hair + Energy every morning and one Detox + Debloat every night. I swear by these vitamins!!
From being my least favourite of all the JS Health supplements, the Detox + Debloat capsules have become something I can't live without. My stomach is noticeably flatter, less bloated, less uncomfortable after I eat and working better in general.
On the other hand my hair is growing beautifully, and despite all the Gelish I put them through, my nails are super strong (also thanks to my collagen I think!)
Overall, these are my top rated of all the JS Health options.
