3 Supplements for Perfect Skin , 3 Comments
Whether you’re healthy or overcoming an illness these supplements will encourage healing and help prevent aging and disease. If you’re already enjoying a healthy lifestyle, these three products will take your overall wellness to the next level. I’m all about preventative health - anything that will prevent aging and disease - count me in!
The following three supplements are a great addition to any diet, and will not interfere with your current dietary routine.
1. Vitamin D Vitamin D is not a vitamin it’s a steroid hormone that can prevent chronic disease and cancer. It regulates your immune system, fights infections like colds and flu, and increases energy. Most people are very deficient, especially those in northern climates. Sun exposure is the ideal way to optimize your vitamin D levels, but if you’re living in the northern hemisphere, the only option is to take a supplement (between 10000-15000 IU or 10-15 drops).
2. Gelatin Gelatin is essentially cooked and powdered collagen. Gelatin provides excellent anti-aging and anti-inflammatory qualities. Health benefits include hormone balance, better digestion, less joint pain, better sleep, and optimal immune function. It also provides the body the building blocks to reduced cellulite, regulate weight, reduce and prevent wrinkles, and grow healthy hair, skin, and nails. According to Ray Peat, PhD, “The degenerative and inflammatory diseases can often be corrected by the use of gelatin-rich foods”.
3. Probiotics Probiotics are the beneficial bacteria that inhabit the intestinal tract and are essential in maintaining balanced gut flora and strong immunity. You can buy probiotic capsules or eat fermented foods such as sauerkraut, homemade yogurt, and kefir.-Allie White
