We've all heard the old saying 'You are what you eat', but do we ever really stop and think about it? What we put into our bodies affects our health in so many ways, from muscle function to cell development and even our skin health.
Did you know that consuming superfood juices regularly can actually support your skin health and give you a natural glow? So before you spend a fortune on expensive face creams, take a look at what your diet can do for your skin!
Collagen: One of the key benefits of a healthy diet is that it can help repair collagen. Collagen is a type of protein that gives our skin its structure and healthy appearance. When we have plenty of collagen, our skin is soft, smooth, and firm. But as we age, our body produces less collagen, which results in wrinkles, sagging, and less elastic skin.
The good news is that there are things we can do to encourage collagen production, and the most important one is through our diet. Research shows that eating foods that are rich in protein and other nutrients like zinc, vitamin C, and copper can help supply the amino acids that our body needs for collagen production. Fruits and vegetables high in vitamins and minerals, like our organic kale juice which contains 200% of the recommended daily allowance of Vitamin C, are great for maintaining healthy skin.
Repair: Another benefit of superfood juices is that they can help repair skin damage. Our skin can be damaged by sun rays, smoking, free radicals, and general wear and tear. But by consuming leafy green vegetables like wheatgrass, which are rich in alpha-lipoic acid (ALA), we can fight against free radicals that cause aging. Vitamin E is also a great way to protect against UV rays, pollution, and free radicals that damage skin cells. Research shows that eating more vitamin E-rich foods like avocado, greens, walnuts, and sunflower seeds can help keep the skin supple and prevent premature aging.
Reducing inflammation :is also important for healthy skin. Most skin inflammation occurs when your immune system responds to a trigger, causing it to provoke a reaction, which can lead to anything from itching to spots or rashes. Vitamin A helps strengthen the skin barrier by promoting cell production, protecting your skin from harmful irritants. Our wheatgrass juice and blended green juice contain 346% of the recommended daily allowance for Vitamin A.
Skin barrier: Finally, superfood juices can help strengthen the skin barrier. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can help boost collagen production and shield the skin from damaging free radicals. Our Elixir Vitality juice is a delicious way to get 72% of the recommended daily allowance of Vitamin C.
All of our superfood juices can contribute to healthy skin on their own, but they are even more effective when combined. They are perfectly balanced to complement each other, so you can mix and match to suit your own individual needs and health goals. Drinking your way to healthy skin has never been easier or more delicious!
