Your heart pumps, nails grow and wounds heal all without you thinking about it. Now what if you could tap into those same internal innate abilities to flip on your anti-aging magic?
Unleashing our own body’s ability to slow down the biological clock and fight aging internally is far easier that you may think. And even better it doesn’t involve gimmicks (our bodies love simple) or hard fast diets.
Here are three key nutrients that you can start incorporating today so you can tap into your own anti-aging wonders.
Three Key Nutrients That Flip On Your Innate Anti-Aging Magic
Also known as B7 within the B complex, it is a necessary component for healthy hair, glowing skin and strong nails. Excellent food sources of Biotin are egg yolks (though the whites get a thumbs up for other B complexes), avocado, raspberries, cauliflower, mushrooms and wild salmon. Many Biotin supplements have also popped up with promises of long luscious hair and nails, but a good highly quality multivitamin may have enough of the B complex already to give you the nutritional benefits. Consistency and quality is the key.
Meet your antioxidant free radical scavenger and collagen lover. No matter how careful you may be, your skin feels the effects of the sun, pollution, toxins, smoke and radiation.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps prevent damage and also helps other antioxidants regenerate. Plus it promotes healthy glowing skin by the production and firmness of our primary connective tissue – collagen.
Just don’t think oranges, Kiwi, grapefruit, strawberries, kale, brussels sprouts, broccoli and red peppers are all top sources on Vitamin C.
Fish oil comes from the tissues of oily fish. When it comes to consumption of fish oil, you can get it from fish themselves (wild salmon, herring, white fish, sardines and anchovies) or from a fish oil supplement such as Omega-3s fatty acids.
Omega-3s nourish your hair follicles for stronger, shinier hair and act as a natural moisturizer for your skin. They also offer amazing anti-inflammatory support, which is a huge positive for clearer skin.
Although our bodies are able to produce most of our fats that we need, this is not the case for Omega-3s, so we need to get them from food or supplements sources.
Try adding in these three to start feeding your beauty – from the inside out.
