When founding The Beauty Doctrine late 2020, we set out to educate on how to achieve vibrant, glowing skin without compromising its health. Unbeknown to us, gears shifted on their own from skincare to supplements. We are pleasantly surprised that our supplements are now our best sellers in the short weeks we've been online. We've come to realize that as we set out to beautify skin, we've emphasized time and again that healthy skin is almost unattainable without a healthy body. Yes, might be cliché, but you are what you eat, no doubt!
We could not be more pleased that our audience is snatching up our little curation of carefully selected daily Supplements & Collagen Boosters. We thought we'd take a couple of minutes and share some education on the subject.
The first consumer favorite is LUMITY. That's the case for so many reasons. Designed by a biological scientist Sara Palmer Hussey PhD, this well designed simplistic set of supplements (AM + PM), touches on all your body and skin's daily needs from targeting oxidative stress, to boosting brain function, energy, vitality, immunity, and everything in between. In addition to your essential vitamins, this brand covers minerals, omegas, and a proprietary complex including L-Lysine, CQ10, Tumeric extract, L-Arginine, and a number of other powerful antioxidants designed to support the function of your entire body. Don't take our word for it. Dermatologist controlled studies have reported that 87% of participants saw a notable improvement in their skin, hair & nails, and overall wellness, after only 12 weeks of daily use.
For the rising tide of consumers concerned about the use of pork in gelatin, worry no more! This formula uses bovine gelatin. We also applaud the brand's sustainability effort in creating refills packaged in biodegradable pouches that double up as travel packs.
Did you know that when you're purchasing a standard Collagen powder, you are essentially buying an animal-based protein powder? Simply put, Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies, which deplete as we age, causing sagging skin. Those of us that are not only concerned with beauty, but also health, opt for plant based Collagen boosters that are filled with Amino Acids which are the principle components of Collagen. So while there isn't a way to inject muscle or Collagen into the skin, the best approach is to take Collagen boosting elements, the most effective of which are: Vitamin C, Zinc, Copper and Amino Acids such as Glycine, Lysine and Proline...
Horsetail Extract, a key ingredient used in Anima Mundi Collagen Boosters, is rich in Zinc, Copper, Silica, Iron, Calcium, Potassium and Vitamin C; making these powders a powerhouse in kicking your Collagen production into high gear. The Berry Bliss and Dirty Rose Chai are a treat- YUM!!!
Last but not least is a gem of a brand called Beekeeper's Naturals harnessing the power of bees' bi-products such as Propolis and Bee Pollen used for centuries to strengthen immunity against viruses and ailments. We ADORE the pocket-sized sweet treat that is the Throat Spray - a great supplement to maintain immunity as this COVID-19 virus continues to lurk around and claim lives.
