Prevent colds and aging naturally this holiday season.

LG coldI’m tired of winter colds and dry, aging skin, aren’t you? This winter as we head to our holiday parties, let’s avoid cold and flu season and keep our largest organ, our skin, healthy and youthful using natural products from the inside and out.

Nutraceuticals are being talked about all over the aesthetic industry as a means to help slow the aging process and keep us healthy through what we eat and put into our bodies.

Research shows that nutraceuticals are essential for better health and improved beauty. They help with DNA repair and support many functions, such as prevent free radical damage, promote production of collagen, help boost your immune system and promote the natural detoxification process. Many antioxidants can be found in fruits such as blueberries, pomegranate, wolf berry and mangosteen. They are rich in anthicyanins, vitamins and minerals which help your skin glow, as well as, stimulate your own production of collagen and elastin.

Whether you juice at home or take a supplemental nutraceutical, make sure you are getting your essential vitamins and minerals as we head into the holiday months to promote wellness from the inside out. Nutraceuticals can be added to holiday cocktails or treats to make sure we are staying our best.Topical nutraceuticals have been shown to improve skin tone, texture, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, provide hydration, repair damaged skin and build collagen naturally.

Studies on Blueberries

blueberriesResearchers have found that blueberries contain many health-promoting properties including high levels of antioxidants. A study conducted by the US Department of Agriculture determined that blueberries have the highest total antioxidant capacity per serving when compared to 24 varieties of fresh fruits, 23 vegetables, 16 herbs and spices, 10 different nuts, and 4 dried fruits.

Due to the harsh growing conditions of Alaska, Wild Alaskan Blueberries have even higher nutritional values than common blueberries. In fact, studies have shown that Wild Alaskan Blueberries have at least ten times higher antioxidant levels than the common blueberry.

 like blueberries. Call the blueberry the brain berry.”
