The Flawless Skin Bundle contains four superfoods that are known for promoting skin health.
Goji Berries. Legend has it that the residents of a particular village in China are exceptionally long-lived and appeared younger than they actually are. They said that this is because their primary source of water is a well that is situated beside goji bushes. The fruits fall into the well and enrich the water within. Whether this story is true or not, goji has long been reputed for its positive effects in longevity in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) – the reasons for which are just being discovered now by modern medicine. Goji isn’t just good for the skin, it’s also good for reversing another age-related issue: poor eyesight.
You can mix a teaspoon of goji powder in hot water to make an instant tea or mix it in your favorite fruit smoothie. Take once daily.
Our Grape Seed Extract has the highest concentration of OPCs (proanthocyanidins) at 95%. It’s good for the heart, the brain, and the entire nervous system. If you want to enjoy the health benefits of red wine without having to resort to a drinking habit which could escalate to over-consumption, Grape Seed Extract is the best way to go.
It’s also very beneficial to skin health. At age 30 is when our bodies start its decline in the production of collagen and elastin, causing us to rely on artificial sources. Grape Seed Extract helps preserve the existing reserves so our skin would continue to look supple and delay the onset of wrinkles.
Of all the superfoods in this bundle, Grape Seed Extract is the one you need the least of due to its potency. A maximum of 1/4 teaspoon per day is enough to deliver the benefits you need. It’s very bitter and works great when mixed in your morning coffee or chocolate.
Milk Thistle, the source of Sylimarin, is particularly known for boosting liver health. While the liver is generally not one of the things that come to mind when you think of aesthetic beautification, you have to understand that the body is a system of interdependent systems. The liver is the one responsible for eliminating the toxins from the body. The state of the health of your liver will manifest outwards on the skin – which is why someone with poor liver health (alcoholics, drug addicts) tend to have poor skin texture and complexion.
Milk Thistle strengthens the liver which has the highest concentration of glutathione in the body. If taken on a regular basis, Milk Thistle can help amplify the benefits of glutathione supplementation.
Our Milk Thistle seeds are pre-ground. Take about a teaspoon to a tablespoon per day. You can mix them on smoothies, or sprinkle them on salads or your breakfast cereal. It has a nutty taste and is only slightly bitter.
Maca Root, with its numerous health benefits, is also good for the skin. If you’re suffering for skin disorders brought on by hormonal imbalance such as oily skin and/or acne, maca will fix the problem from the inside out. You have to note, however, that upon taking maca for acne, your skin condition may appear to worsen for a few days. After this period you will notice the reduction in the severity of acne and eventual clearing up of your skin.
You can mix 1/4 teaspoon of maca in your morning coffee (with grape seed extract). Mix all the dry ingredients together before adding water.
