LIFE IS A JOURNEY, ARE YOU READY?

BEAUTY SUPPLEMENTS FOR 2014

Beauty or not, these supplements help us to keep our bodies moving. They help to maintain our cells and get rid of free radicals. They are like a jump start for our bodies to do their own beauty regime within.

1. CoQ10
This is a natural supplement. Our bodies develop this enzyme naturally but the amount decreases when we get older. You’ve probably heard of the CoQ10 supplement for skin care before. It’s actually more commonly seen as a topical ingredient than in a supplement but they both work great to reduce the look of wrinkles and improve the overall look of your skin. CoQ10’s benefits aren’t limited to just our skin, they also include health benefits like reducing gum disease, heart problems and increasing fertility!


2. FISH OIL
We take this together with CoQ10 as it needs some fat to activate it. We of course also take the CoQ10 together with a fatty meal. Please don't take our word of fat as bad. Fish oil is full of omega 3 and this is especially good for our skins, joints and vascular maintenance.


3. FO-TI
This is a traditional Chinese herb that is a strong anti-oxidant. It is a bark that is grounded into a powder form and put in capsules. Our mom used to take this and this herb is especially good in prevent gray hair. Some even claim that it can reverse gray hair! We shall see. Being a strong anti-oxidant, it is also good our skins and maintaining our overall wellbeing. We have tried to use this herb in TCM soups and herbal teas but we are just not entirely sure about the degree of the heat and time that is needed to extract the goodness of this herb in its most potent form. A capsule works just nicely.


4. CORDYCEPS
Ultra Cordyceps Plus contains pure cultivated Cordyceps sinensis, an herb used for centuries in China as a vitalizing tonic that improves energy and benefits the function of various organs and systems.* Ultra Cordyceps Plus contains a strain of cultivated Cordyceps recognized by the Chinese government as most similar to wild Cordyceps sinensis, a rare fungus found in the Tibetan Highlands of China. Two herbs that support the rejuvenating effect of cordyceps are added: Ginkgo biloba extract and artichoke leaf extract.

It improves energy, stamina and vitality. It also supports lung helth, liver function and memory and metal ability.


5. CHLORELLA
Chlorella is promoted as an herbal remedy for a wide range of conditions. Proponents claim it kills several types of cancer, fights bacterial and viral infections, enhances the immune system, increases the growth of "friendly" germs in the digestive tract, lowers blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and promotes healing of intestinal ulcers, diverticulosis, and Crohn’s disease. It is said to "cleanse" the blood, digestive system, and the liver. Chlorella supporters also say that it helps the body eliminate mold and process more oxygen.

Supporters state that chlorella supplements increase the level of albumin in the body. Albumin is a protein normally present in the bloodstream, and promoters claim it protects against diseases such as cancer, diabetes, arthritis, AIDS, pancreatitis, cirrhosis, hepatitis, anemia, and multiple sclerosis.

Chlorella is said to prevent cancer through its ability to cleanse the body of toxins and heavy metals. Some Web sites describe it as the perfect food, saying that it regulates blood sugar, kills cancer cells, strengthens the immune system, and even "reverses the aging cycle."


6. CRANBERRY EXTRACT
Cranberry Concentrate capsules are a convenient way of obtaining the benefits of cranberry juice. It takes over 8 pounds of whole cranberries to produce 1 pound of Cranberry Concentrate powder. This is good for diabetics as it does not includes the sugar in the juices. It is good for urinary tract disorders as it prevents bacteria from sticking to the uterine walls. It also is a powerful anti-oxidant that is good for our skins.


SO MANY SUPPLEMENT? YOU MIGHT ASK.
We travel a lot and do not usually eat too much. So, we think that having these natural supplements is a good way to keep up our health and maintain it. We would not be too into it if we are taking chemical supplements but natural ones are just like super foods. We think that they are especially convenient since we travel to places where food might not be so balanced.
