Anti-Aging Superfoods for Skin, Hair and Nails
Your skin is a good reflection of your inner body’s health. In fact, what you eat has a direct influence on what is expressed externally. Since superfoods are known to reverse aging, eating the right foods will enhance your natural beauty and minimise inflammation, acne, wrinkles, dry skin, and other skin-related conditions. The anti-aging foods or so-called ‘beauty’ nutrients needed include protein, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids. These all play an important role in attaining beautiful skin, strong hair, and nails. Trust us, you will notice a big difference in your looks as you feed your body with the right nutrients!
Proteins turn into building blocks called amino acids upon digestion. Your body then reuses them to make other proteins, including the collagen and keratin that form the structure of the skin. Collagen, which is a well-known amino acid for promoting skin elasticity can be formed through the combination of certain amino acids (proteins, which can also be plant-based) and vitamin C. Nature’s superfoods organic Quinoa seeds, amaranth, sacha inchi seeds, and plant-based protein powder are examples of superfoods that have high protein content, making them some of the best anti-aging superfoods for your skin, hair, and nails.
Antioxidants are strongly related to beauty as they fight against oxidative stresses by stabilising free radicals. This decelerates the speed of premature aging. This is possible because eating antioxidant-rich foods will improve the anti-aging process and reduce the free radical damage to your cells. Anthocyanins, Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG), resveratrol and Velutin are powerful antioxidants found in our superfood products, including maqui powder, acai powder, organic matcha powder, goji berries, dried mulberries, golden berries, chia seed oil that help to improve the overall health and condition of your skin and hair.
3. Essential Fatty Acids
Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) are particularly important for building cell membranes, skin and tissue repair, and overall membrane flexibility. Too little essential fatty acids in your diet can make your skin dry and wrinkled. Omega-3 fatty acids are a kind of polyunsaturated fat that helps reduce skin inflammation that may cause skin conditions such as acne and eczema. Since polyunsaturated fats cannot be produced by the body naturally, adding superfoods that have a rich source of Omega-3 will ensure your body is not lacking in this essential fat. Nature’s superfoods organic chia seeds, acai powder, sacha inchi seeds, plant-based protein powder has a good amount of plant source EFAs that aid in the anti-aging process and provides nutrients to the skin and hair for extra moisture and nourishing benefits. Our chia seed oil, which has an Omega-3 to Omega-6 ratio of 3:1, ensures that you benefit from the increased intake of Omega-3 fats instead of other essential fats.
