04 Sep The true beauty of supplements
So let’s get right down to business. Nutrition and what we put into our bodies plays a very big and very important role for your inner and outer beauty. Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants is a benefit to your whole body including your hair, skin and nails. Antioxidants can help curb the damage caused by free radicals which can harm skin cells and cause those signs of ageing that we all want to avoid. The true beauty of supplements is just a mouthful away.
Put simply, our environment isn’t like it was 10, 20, 30 years ago. Our soils are depleted, pollution is ever more evident and our fruits and vegetables are now sprayed with chemicals, pesticides and other nasty components that we, in the end, ingest. So it makes sense as to why our bodies aren’t receiving the nourishment that they once were and our skin isn’t glowing quite the same.
All this being said, it makes a bit of sense that we need some extra help yes? Enter supplements. Are they good for us? Are they bad for us? Let’s put it this way, with the depletion of nutrients now, they certainly aren’t causing us any harm and as research and studies do show, adding some extra vitamins and minerals into our diet can only be a positive for our internal glow and wellbeing as well as our outer glow. So even if you do eat healthy, supplements are a great everyday safety net to help provide a balance of the nutrients that your body needs.
Supplements? What are they? Why do our bodies need the extra nourishment and what should we be looking for? Firstly we want to express that supplements are sexy. Why? because a happy, healthy body equals a more confident you and from within you shine and shining equals sexy. In our opinion!
So with keeping all of that in mind and with a wide range of supplements out there to choose from. How do we not get overwhelmed with choice and what exactly do we add into our nutrition to benefit our inner and outer beauty? We take a look at some staple supplements that you can start adding in to your diet today. Not only will you hair, skin and nails thank you but your overall health will get the love and attention that it needs and deserves.

CoQ10 is an all important enzyme produced naturally in the human body and is found in every single cell and tissue. It helps to produce energy, neutralise free radicals and keep cells both in the body and in the skin nice and healthy.
A young body has the ability to produce as much CoQ10 as it needs however, most women over the age of thirty have below optimum levels of CoQ10 in the skin. The lack of CoQ10 results in the declined ability to produce collagen and elastin (the magic we need for tight, healthy skin!) Another downside of a lack of CoQ10 is the ability of cells to regenerate and combat stress. So in a nutshell, taking a CoQ10 supplement as we age can help with those cells and help to keep skin looking taught and terrific.
WHY?: A daily supplement containing Vitamin D3, coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) and resveratrol to help reduce the signs of ageing from the inside out. Supplementing CoQ10, resveratrol and vitamin D3 helps your body absorb the nutrients it might not get from food alone.
Also known as ascorbic acid, this little beauty is necessary for the growth, development and repair of all body tissues.

So it’s no wonder that this vitamin is crucial for inner and outer beauty.

One of the main benefits of Vitamin B12 that we love is the important role it plays in the formation of red blood cells which equals optimal nail health and the ability to regulate your skin’s pigment production which prevents the darkening of skin in certain parts of your body.
