Shake Your Way to Better Skin

Thursday, January 27, 2011

There are so many products out on the market now that claim to improve the condition of your skin.  It's hard to wade through all of the useless stuff and find an effective remedy. But the best solutions are not lotions, they are nutrient rich foods that you can find in the grocery store. 
Avocados that would nourish the skin with essential oils, cherries help fight skin damage and wrinkles, flaxseed oil hydrates skin, and there are many others help improve beauty from the inside out.
Instead of buying all of these foods there is a delicious and ultra-convenient alternative with more beauty benefits than I could have wished for.

I did a bit of digging to find out which ingredients in Beachbody’s own Shakeology® health shake have real beauty benefits.

Here are some of the beauty-boosting ingredients in Shakeology:

Biotin: for healthy hair and skin.
Amaranth (sprouted): has shown promise in the prevention of premature graying of the hair.
Bilberry fruit powder: a strong antioxidant and an excellent free radical scavenger. Helps combat the cell damage that leads to premature aging and disease.
Goji berries: one of the most antioxidant-rich fruits; helps prevent premature aging of skin; contains heavy doses of vitamin C and also linoleic acid, which help to promote collagen growth and keep your skin looking plump and youthful.
Grape seed extract: a natural anti-inflammatory shown to improve elasticity of the skin.
Iodine (as kelp): wonderful for nail growth and healthy hair.
Pantothenic acid: known to reduce toxins and assist with clearing acne.
Vitamin E: protects and helps to repair skin.

Several women who drink Shakeology have noticed their own beauty benefits. Irene D. of Gilford, New Hampshire, mentioned she noticed a reduction in the brown blotches on her neck and décolleté. Also, her hair has become shiny and soft with less breakage since drinking Shakeology. Tami F. from Maine said she loves that her fingernails now grow like crazy and her hair grows like weeds. Jass O. said her nails finally aren’t weak like they used to be.

I couldn’t imagine traveling across the world to find these ingredients. It’s hard enough for me to find time to schlep to the local market. Thankfully, I can dash down to the kitchen at work to get my daily Shakeology fix. If you’d like, you can order yours here and have it delivered right to your door.
