We get a lot of questions around which foods and boosters are ideal for healthy hair and glowing skin. Overall, the best thing you can do is eat a clean-foods diet that skips refined sugars, alcohol, and empty calories. Go for one loaded with different veggies, fruits, lean/veggie proteins, healthy fats, and fibre. Getting your sweat on daily will also support skin goals.
Ingredients for Skin & Hair Love
These berries are packed with beneficial compounds, such as antioxidants, fiber, monounsaturated fats, calcium, fiber, vitamin A, and anthocyanins, clinically proven to be support hair and skin health. They also work as a natural cleanser for your liver, kidneys, and colon.
Biotin has the nickname the “H” vitamin, which stems from the German words Haar and Haut that mean “hair and skin”. An essential micronutrient, Biotin is a member of the B complex group of vitamins, a group of key nutrients needed for healthy metabolic, nerve, digestive and cardiovascular functions. It protects brain function and fights cognitive decline while supporting thyroid and adrenal function. It also builds and repairs tissues and muscles, which helps us maintain health hair, nails and skin.
Tumeric contains curcumin, a powerful anti-inflammatory, metabolism-boosting, detoxifier and disease-fighter. It has also proven to help with skin conditions and support thyroid function.
4. Bamboo Silica
We use the bamboo silica that is the pure extract of bamboo (not the horsetail kind), which contains 70% organic silica by weight. This mineral helps strengthen and beautify the body inside and out, making it a key anti-aging mineral. It also strengthens arteries, joints, nail, hair, and bones, and helps to keep skin looking youthful.
Ginger, an adaptogen, helps us deal with the negative effects of stress such as increased inflammation, damaged blood vessels and various types of hormonal imbalances that can all result in skin conditions, brittle hair and nails. Pair with Vitamin C for best absorption.
This disease-fighting, detoxifying immunity booster is packed with antioxidants, protein, key vitamins and minerals. A few benefits include natural detoxification and microfloral balance, healthy weight maintenance and weight loss, and support of good eye, bone and heart health. With 3900% (not a typo) more iron than spinach and 2800% more beta-carotene than carrots, Spirulina is a mega-nutrient-dense booster.
Stress can raise havoc on your hair and skin health. We love Ashwagandha because it promotes restful sleep and stress-reduction while providing adrenal and thyroid support. It is also a natural immunity booster and blood sugar stabilizer. Look for it in our new Vita C Immunity Blend launching in May.
