Get That Glow

Beauty directly reflects overall wellness and health within the body.  The nutrients we eat affects cell growth (hair, nails, skin), therefore, it's important that we do, and eat, what's best for maintaining healthy cell rejuvenation. 

Ingredients for The Glow:
Vitamins A, B, C, E
Coenzyme Q10
Omega-3 fatty acids

Foods highest in antioxidants include, berries, raisins, prunes, kale, spinach, broccoli, beets, and sprouts.  Imagine antioxidants as your cell's personal body guard and the all the nasty free radicals floating around in the  environment as the enemy attacking you.  Well, antioxidants stand up to the enemy and take the hits themselves, protecting your skin and leaving you beautiful.  Whether you apply them topically (cream) or orally (berries), consuming  antioxidants should be made a daily habit!
