Better Nutrition: The Beauty Secret Cosmetic Companies Don’t Want You to Know in 2020

We’re learning more and more about how nutritional compounds work together to create dazzling natural beauty.

Can looking your best be a byproduct of feeling your best?

What’s awesome is that this is turning out to be the case.

Let’s just be honest for a second: we all want to look as attractive as possible. And there’s nothing wrong with this…unless this desire starts to cross over into the obsessive side (Have you seen an episode of Botched lately?)

While cosmetics have their time and place, they should not be the centerpiece of your beauty foundation–no pun intended. First of all, those creams, conditioners, masks, serums, etc. can get pretty costly. The average woman spends over $15,000 on makeup in her life. (1)

Then there’s the most obvious thing: cosmetics are TEMPORARY. It has to come off at some point (hopefully not on your clothes or your boyfriend’s pillow).

Plus, makeup can actually do more harm than good. Skin irritation and breakouts are common results of relying too much on makeup to enhance your look.

It’s in our nature to find the beauty “quick fix”…although it often isn’t the best one.

More and more, women are finding that the most essential part of their beauty repertoire has nothing to do with what goes into a makeup bag. For a new decade, it’s time to look at how creating a beauty nutritional formula can be your game-changer.

Combining All Natural Nutrition: Potent “Inner Beauty”

Ok, so you’re already familiar with products that you apply on the outside. New studies are showing that certain vitamins, minerals, and spices are producing powerful beauty effects from the inside.

They’re like super-healthy dietary compounds. Not only are they great for overall health, but they also create a radiant glow to your appearance…one you never have to take off!

The only drawback is that most of us live in the real world. By this, we mean that addressing the most important nutrient needs to enhance beauty through diet alone can be challenging.

So women are finding that supplementing with high quality nutritional compounds not only keeps them healthy, it keeps them looking years younger than they are!

Just a few examples of celebrities who swear by their vitamins include Khloe and Kylie Kardashian, Jennifer Aniston, Madonna, Victoria Beckham, Kate Middleton…the list goes on.

Think about it: If celebrities like these, who have access to top nutritionists, are swearing by strategic nutrition formulas, it’s probably something all of us should be looking into.

Ok, let’s get into some of the more powerful beauty nutrients–and how they work together–for supple skin, shiny hair, and strong nails.

Collagen

This is HUGE.

Think of collagen like an internal glue that makes you beautiful. It’s a protein that binds tissues together. There’s no stopping the aging process (unfortunately). When we age, the natural production of collagen decreases, and that’s why our skin begins to sag and wrinkle.

Supplementing collagen into your diet provides your body with the raw materials it needs to not just stay healthy, but to look stunning.

Vitamin C

The first thing you probably think of when hearing Vitamin C is its role in boosting your immune system. But this super vitamin has a whole lot of skincare power packed into it.

Vitamin C is a super antioxidant that protects your skin from damage caused by the sun. It also helps fortify it against the environmental toxins that we get bombarded by every day. It also helps brighten the skin and fade dark spots caused by free radical damage.

Fish Oil

You’ve probably heard of “healthy” fats. Fish are full of them. The building blocks of fish’s healthy fats are called Omega-3 fatty acids. They’re like little beauty rockstars that have all kinds of additional health benefits.

The only problem is that you would need to eat A TON of fish every day to get the most benefit. That’s why fish oil has become a staple of beauty-focused supplementation.

When you add in some additional Omega-3’s, they get to work nourishing your hair follicles. This goes a long way in preventing dryness and brittleness.

These super fats are also great for your skin. They fight inflammation and skin issues like acne and redness associated with it.

Turmeric

Turmeric is one of the hottest spices around. But we’re not just referring to the temperature on your taste buds. The active compound in turmeric is curcumin, and it’s like the king of the awesome “anti” properties:

  • antioxidant
  • anti-inflammatory
  • anti-aging

Turmeric is also fantastic for circulation, which is an under-appreciated aspect of glowing skin. The better our circulation is, the more our blood can deliver healthy nutrients to it and flush away the nasty toxins that contribute to looking older.

Now, it’s very likely that you’ve heard of these before. This article would be like 15 pages long if we went through ALL of the benefits that these four super-supplements provided.

But we speak to how, when taken together, they turn into a vital beauty formula that no makeup, mask, or moisturizer could touch!

Synergistic Super Beauty

Synergy: the interaction or cooperation of two or more organizations, substances, or other agents to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects

We’re learning more and more about how these four nutrients interact. It’s becoming clear that while each one can be great on its own, taking them together can work wonders.

For example, the anti-inflammatory benefits of Vitamin C and fish oil help to combat damaging free radicals in our bodies. We already mentioned that. But these lame free radicals are also one of the main offenders in reducing our natural collagen.

Here’s what this points to:

When you combine fish oil, Vitamin C, and collagen, you’re accomplishing two things. You’re preserving what natural collagen production you have while fortifying your body with even more of it.

But the collagen love doesn’t stop there.

The skin-healing goodness that turmeric brings to the party takes it even further. Turmeric has been shown to heal wounds as well as increase the collagen deposits in your skin. So in a sense, you’re providing your skin with a collection of substances that give it everything possible to look and feel younger.

Another example of synergistic benefits is how fish oil and turmeric complement each other.

Chronic inflammation is a very serious problem in today’s world. Between stress, environmental toxins, our constant exposure to BPA in plastics, we’re not living in the natural world our ancestors did. Taking two of the most potent natural anti-inflammatory agents together ensures that you are putting your body in its best defense.

Again, each one stands on its own. But taken together, they address multiple functions of what’s needed for a natural cosmetic response.

The more you’re safeguarded against inflammation, the more your body can focus on growth and repair.

Omega 3’s and Vitamin C are part of Jennifer Aniston’s beauty supplement formula. Her appearance at age 50 makes us think that she’s onto something. (2)

This means healthy hair that grows like wildfire, strong and shiny nails, and youthful, glowing skin that turns heads.

The Best Of Both Worlds

When you put good stuff in, you get good stuff out. No amount of topical products can compare to the beauty-enhancing effects of providing your body with the nutrition it needs to thrive.

Aside from beauty, the super formula of fish oil, collagen, Vitamin C, and turmeric will turbocharge your immune system, metabolism, and energy. It’s a difference you don’t just see…you feel.

Health AND beauty.

Protection AND enhancement.

This formula is a win-win.

As we head into the new decade, an all-natural nutritional formula will define a beauty approach that outlasts anything that you apply on the outside.

Think of it as your secret formula for looking and feeling fabulous…naturally.

Beware the Pumpkin Spice Latte!!

Beware the Pumpkin Spice Latte!!

Beware the Pumpkin Spice Latte!!

We’re getting right into the heart of pumpkin season.

For many, that means one thing: the Pumpkin Spice Latte.

Every fall Starbucks rolls out one of their most beloved coffee drinks ever.

And they are pretty tasty.

But…

Coming in at around 50 grams of sugar, the Pumpkin Spice Latte isn’t going to be making any health drink lists.

REAL pumpkin, on the other hand, is full of healthy nutrients.

For one, it’s very high in Vitamin A. This vitamin plays a big role in promoting the health of your eyes, and guarding against macular degeneration.

Pumpkin also contains a good amount of Vitamin C. What better way to boost your immune system and prepare for cold season that with the ultimate Fall fruit (did you even know pumpkin was a fruit?)

Want to show your skin some extra love? Pumpkin is chock full of carotenoids (these are the organic pigments that give pumpkin its color.) They work as antioxidants that can support skin rejuvenation.

Pumpkin is full of magnesium, and potassium. These minerals are great for heart health, and they’re also easy to not get enough of in our diet.

And to top it all off, pumpkin has a ton of fiber, so you can feel full on a small amount of calories. It’s a tasty option for a super-healthy side dish.

Like we said at the beginning, unfortunately the famous Pumpkin Spic Latte doens’t deliver any of pumpkin’s nutritonal benefits.

But in the spirit of the season, we wanted to supply you with a much healthier -and just as delicious – pumpkin treat!

Behold, the Keto Pumpkin Donut with Coconut Butter Glaze

INGREDIENTS
-1/2 C pumpkin puree
-1/4 cup heavy cream
-4 eggs
-2 tbsp coconut oil
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-1 tsp vanilla liquid stevia
-1/2 C coconut flour

-1 tsp baking powder
-1/4 tsp baking soda
-1/2 cup granulated Erythritol
-1/8 tsp salt
-2 scoops Organisource Collagen Peptides

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Combine pumpkin purée, heavy cream, eggs, coconut oil, vanilla extract, and stevia.
2. In a separate bowl combine coconut flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda, erythritrol, salt, and collagen.
3. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet. Grease donut pan and bake at 350 for 15 – 18 mins.
4. For coconut butter glaze, simply melt coconut butter and add in vanilla stevia with a shake or two of pumpkin spice (both to taste!) and drizzle over warm donuts.

You won’t believe how delicious these are.

It will feel like you’re totally wrecking your diet, but you won’t be.

The Hunger Games: Stop Killing Yourself to Losing Weight

The Hunger Games: Stop Killing Yourself to Losing Weight

The Hunger Games: Stop Killing Yourself to Losing Weight

No one likes feeling hungry.

The need for food is the most hardwired biological drive; it’s goes back to the earliest humans and their need to survive.

But then again…

Our cave ancestors didn’t have the option of hitting up the Wendy’s that’s right around the corner.

Or the thousands of processed items we can get at any grocery store/gas station/shopping mall, etc.

So while hunger was once a vital indicator that food was needed thousands of years ago,

Today it might just be a symptom of boredom, depression, or even addiction.

Our relationship to food has TOTALLY changed.

And this is why losing weight can be so difficult.

Because no matter what diet you go on,

If your goal is to drop some pounds, you are going to have to get used to some level.

There’s no getting around it.

If this wasn’t true, than everybody would be walking around at their ideal weight. It’s easy to see that this is not the case.

Here are a few tips to help you deal with hunger that might help:

  1. Eat slower. Try to be a bit more mindful when you eat. SLOW DOWN. If you’re shoveling a meal down while watching TV or looking at your phone, it’s very possible that you’re missing the early signs of being full. Chew your food a bit longer, this not only can help you enjoy it more, but it goes a long way in helping the digestive process.
  2. Drink more water. You already know how important it is to get enough H2O. A lot of the times when we think, “Hey, I could go for a snack,” we’re actually in the early stages of dehydration. When you first notice that you’re hungry, drink some water and see what happens.
  3. Consider your “Why.” Say you just finished your dinner on a new diet plan and your kinda like, “Is that IT?” Tell yourself WHY you’re embarking on this journey. Maybe you want to make sure you’re healthy and be active with your kids. Maybe you want to finally fit into that smaller size. Whatever it is, keep reminding yourself that nothing that’s awesome and worth having comes easily.
  4. Put veggies into play. You can eat as much celery as you want. Literally. Other green and leafy vegetables are similar in their ability to eat huge amounts without worrying about bowing your daily calories. Of course, this doesn’t mean you can drown them in ranch, but at least it’s it’s a good option.

Turn hunger into your opponent. When those thoughts of “just have one little piece of cake” start rearing their ugly heads, smack them down!

Think of how fortunate you are to live in a culture in which you DON’T have to worry about not having enough food. There are millions of people around the world that don’t have that luxury.

The point is you can redefine your relationship to hunger while losing weight.

Will it be a bit uncomfortable at times?

Yes.

But will it get easier as you have one little success over it after another.

Yup. You better believe it.

And if you cave in sometimes, don’t beat yourself up. Just get back on track and keep moving forward.

Life tends to work out best when we don’t treat it like a sprint.

It’s a marathon.

Did We Find the Best Diet Ever?

Did We Find the Best Diet Ever?

Did We Find the Best Diet Ever?

Today we’d like to tell you about a new diet program. It’s the best ever!

You can eat as much as you want!

You can eat whatever you want!

And you’ll lose about 10 lbs a week!!!!

========================
EVERY DAY IS A CHEAT DAY!!!
========================

Full disclosure: **we are being totally sarcastic here and in no way endorse this**

Here’s the point:

“New” diets will be making clever marketers rich forever.

Before regulators starting putting a halt to certain methods of advertising, you would actually see stuff like the beginning of this email.

But there are still questionable programs out there.

So what IS the best diet?

It’s the one that works for YOU.

Keto worked for us. It’s big right now, and for good reason. An over-reliance on sugar has proven to be disastrous for a ton of people.

It wasn’t that long ago that fat was considered a “killer” and had to be avoided at all costs.

Luckily, today we know better.

But does that mean no one should have any carbs?

Not necessarily.

Again, there are WAY too many variables in each person’s metabolic equation to make any kind of blanket statement.

The moral of the story:

Discover the foods that work best for you. It may take a little trial and error.

And always take people’s — even “experts” — advice with a grain of salt.

But not too big a grain of salt…

…because sodium is bad 😉

Do “Nothing” For Better Fitness

Do “Nothing” For Better Fitness

If something has been around for a few thousand years, odds are there’s a reason for it. It probably works.

Yoga is a great example. Its beginnings can be traced back to northern India about 5,000 years ago.

That’s a pretty good run!

Today, yoga is everywhere. It’s become part of our culture. Yoga studios are found in every town and city, TV commercials show doing yoga in addition to their daily activities.

The merchandising for yoga (apparel, mats, books, etc) has skyrocketed.

We’re talking a billion-dollar business. Pretty sure the originators in ancient India would’ve gotten a kick out of all this.

But while it’s awesome that so many people have embraced this practice of health and wellness, it’s more just physical fitness. It’ more than just seeing how bendy you can get.

Meditation is just as important in yoga as the postures are.

And many different cultures have been practicing meditation for millennia.

Modern science has only served to confirm meditation as something you should be looking into. There are now hundreds of scientific studies that demonstrate that meditation can:

  • Enhance self-awareness
  • Help to lower blood pressure
  • Combat age-related memory loss
  • Balance Emotions
  • Control anxiety
  • Reduce stress

Those last two are more important than a lot of us realize.

Unregulated stress can have terrible effects on our health and wellness.

When we’re stressed out, the body releases the hormone cortisol into the system which primes us for action. It’s the “fight or flight” effect. While this is ideal in emergency situations, being in this state on a regular basis begins to wreak havoc on our bodies’ internal environments.

It speeds up the aging process WAY too fast.

The speed and constant bombardment of information in modern life can be taking a toll and adding unnecessary stress without us even realizing it. Then there are work, family, and other obligations.

When you develop a meditation practice, you are essentially allowing your mind and body to “unload.” What’s cool is that you don’t have to become a Zen master and meditate for hours to experience the great benefits.

It can be a little challenging beginning to meditate; we’re not used to sitting and doing “nothing.”

Luckily, there are a bunch of apps like Headspace and Calm that make learning meditation easier than ever. All you have to start out with is a few minutes each day.

But it can be amazing what just a few moments can do.

If you haven’t yet, you seriously might want to look into starting a meditation practice. We’re learning more and more about how the mind and body are NOT separate. And taking care of both will skyrocket your overall health and happiness!
