Get a Healthy Glow All Winter

Lotions and potions can take a bite out of your wallet, but the secret to radiant skin can actually be found in your refrigerator and pantry. Many of the foods you’ll find there are loaded with nutrients that can help your skin get a youthful, healthy glow. Here are three of them.

1. Carotenoid-rich fruits and veggies

Think tomatoes, carrots, apricots, and other deliciously colorful produce. These are all high in a plant compound called carotenoids, yellow, orange, and red pigments that act as antioxidants the body. A study out of the University of Illinois found that carotenoids actually changed the appearance of people’s skins. Researchers asked 35 adults to write down what they ate and recorded participants’ skin color using a sensitive light scanner. Over a six-week period, skin color increased in overall radiance with just three to four daily servings of carotenoid-rich produce daily.1

Try this: Bring hummus and carrot sticks to the golf course for a mid-round snack, make lasagna with zucchini or spaghetti squash and add some extra tomatoes into the sauce, or keep dried apricots in a sealed baggie in your desk drawer for afternoon cravings.

2. Berries


Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries … are not only sweet for your taste buds, they’re also luscious for your face. They’re high in vitamin C, which helps produce collagen. Collagen, the most abundant protein in the skin, gives it strength and structure and maintains its elasticity. A study using data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey found that women with higher C intake from foods had skin that looked younger.2

Berries are also rich in antioxidants, which fight the damage free radicals can cause to the skin at a cellular level.

Try this: Blend up a smoothie with frozen berries and low-fat yogurt, throw berries into a salad to sweeten things up, or put some into your oatmeal at breakfast.

3. Salmon

We often recommend salmon to help keep the heart healthy. But did you know that fatty fish is also good for your skin? Fish is a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are responsible for the health of cell membranes, including those that surround delicate skin cells. That means that it helps beneficial nutrients to get into the cell, blocks harmful substances from getting in, and helps transport waste products out. It also boosts the skin’s ability to hold water, which makes it look and feel softer, smoother, and wrinkle free.

Omega-3 fatty acids also help prime the body’s natural anti-inflammatory response, which helps keep your skin looking healthy. If you don’t like fish, look for walnuts, chia seeds, and omega-3s enriched eggs.*

Try this: Bring pouches of tuna on the go, swap out meat burgers for salmon burgers (find them in the frozen foods section of your grocery store), or switch the ground meat to fish on Taco Tuesdays.

It tastes good to look good!

Omega-3 fatty acids and phospholipids are important for keeping our cells, hearts, brains, and immune systems healthy. Omega-3 Phospholipid features Antarctic krill oil, clinically shown to increase plasma EPA and DHA levels (Omega-3 index).

At-a-Glance

  • May reduce coronary heart disease risk**
  • Promotes a healthy inflammatory response*
  • Supports whole body cellular function*

Product Description

Omega-3 Phospholipid 500mg (100% Pure Krill Oil) is ideal for adults interested in both heart health and whole body health.*

Omega-3 Phospholipid features 100% pure Superba™ krill oil, a naturally sourced ingredient with omega-3 fatty acids in the highly bioavailable phospholipid form along with astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant that acts as a naturally sourced preservative.*

Superba™ krill oil is clinically shown to increase blood levels of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids. These omega-3 fatty acids are critical for a wide range of biochemical processes involved in heart health, a healthy inflammatory response, immune defense, memory and cognitive function, and cellular health.*

Omega-3 Phospholipid may help reduce coronary heart disease risk.** It supports heart health, in part, by helping to maintain a healthy Omega-3 Index. The Omega-3 Index is an emerging biomarker for heart health and reflects the EPA and DHA content of red blood cell membranes that results from the long-term intake of these omega-3 fatty acids.*

Omega-3 Phospholipid also helps ensure an optimal intake of omega-3 fatty acids critical for cell membranes to take in nutrients, expel waste products, and activate cell signaling pathways. Omega-3 fatty acids also serve as building blocks for bioactive compounds that promote a healthy inflammatory response. Inside cells, omega-3 fatty acids play a role in numerous biological pathways involved in immune defense, lipid balance and other functions.*

 

Superba™ is a trademark of the Aker Group.

**Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. One serving of Omega-3 Phospholipid provides 0.176 grams of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids.
