Here is an amazing article on marine collagen by Tom Nikkola!



Why is Gut Health so Important?
Let me just tell you…the health of your gut is CRAZY important to your overall health and well-being. The health of your digestive system can affect your body’s…
-vitamin and mineral absorbency
-hormone regulation
-vitamin production
-immune response
-ability to eliminate toxins
-mental health {yes, even that!}
Studies show that there is an incredible connection between gut health and mood.
Those who suffer with digestive imbalance are more likely to suffer from autoimmune disorders and occasional moodiness – or more significant emotional challenges.

The bodies hormones (yes men AND women and developing children) are made in the gut, and we all need as many happy, well functioning hormones as possible. If your gut isn’t happy it’s going to be hard to feel well.
Can any of you relate to the gut health/mood connection? Especially after the last two years? I can!
Let’s first go over some myths relating to the gut:
We all have have heard things like the myths below. And often times, these things become factual information in our mind, even though they aren’t based on actual facts.
they are simply NOT true.
Example: Common = normal.
Just because something is “common” in today’s society doesn’t mean it’s “normal” or the way our bodies were designed and intended the thrive.
Example: Going poop once a week is normal.
Um yeah, not cool. You need to be going 1-2 times a day at least. Fun fact: the average American is walking around with 10 pounds of impacted old, stale poop in their colon. Yikes.
Example: What you eat while pregnant and nursing doesn’t affect your baby’s gut health.
It matters. Truly it does. What we place in our bodies AND our own emotional state has a direct impact on our baby in the womb.
Example: Allergies are just a normal part of life.
Nope. You weren’t designed to have allergies, day to day inflammation, blocked lymph nodes, poor detox pathways or an immune system that is continually feeling “off”. The truth of it all, is that the gut plays a huge role in all of these things and more.
Example: You haven’t had any health issues so far, so you have nothing to be concerned about.
Really? Sometimes people are living in such a state of inflammation they believe that is what health “feels like” without knowing what true health is and how amazing they can actually feel! Benjamin Franklin once said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Now, that’s a true truth!
Example: All things with acid will make reflux worse.
This is also a myth. Try some apple cider vinegar or some Lemon Vitality in your water and see what happens.

– This is also where the oral microbiome matters greatly. Try swishing some probiotics in your mouth every evening and spit out. Also the thieves mouthwash is incredible to creating a strong biome.
So what we can see in the examples above is that there are many, many things we hear in culture that simply are not true, but we as the owner of our bodies and families must dig deeper.
Here are my TOP choices to begin a journey of creating a strong ecosystem in your gut.
The “gut” by the way is not just the stomach, it actually begins in your mouth with the oral microbiome and the moment digestive enzymes begin to form (especially when you smell that cinnamon roll!) so it’s taking care of the mouth all the way down to the colon (remember to poop!)
Lifestyle changes
Bottom line, what we are breathing, touching and eating in our home matters – yes outside the home but we can’t live in a bubble so thank goodness for Ningxia to detox that junk

1. One cleaner is all that is needed = thieves home cleaner
2. Real food. Read ingredient labels and NIX the seed oils
3. Diffuse oils instead of air fresheners or other fragrances

Life 9 Probiotics / MightyPro
Probiotics (beneficial bacteria) produce and regulate a number of neurotransmitters and hormones that impact our sleep and overall health as well as our “terrain” (immune response):
Tryptophan and Melatonin: Probiotics can increase blood levels of tryptophan, an amino acid that converts into serotonin and then into melatonin, the hormone that regulates how sleepy you feel
Serotonin: Dubbed the “happy” chemical, serotonin helps to regulate mood and plays a significant role in sleep quality. Researchers found that serotonin deficiency in rats led to disrupted circadian rhythms and sleep-wake cycles (aka restless sleep)
The vast majority of serotonin in the body (over 90%) is manufactured in the gut, and gut microbes regulate the amount produced.
GABA: Good bacteria help to produce GABA, the calming brain chemical, as well as enhance its brain receptors.
Cortisol: If temporary stress and anxiety are the cause of your sleepless nights, rest assured that probiotics can lower levels of cortisol, a hormone that becomes elevated during times of stress.
Gut microbes also have their own daily rhythms that influence our circadian rhythms, affecting our metabolism and how we sleep. In one study, mice fed a typical Western high – seed oil fat, high-sugar diet that depleted beneficial bacteria showed circadian rhythm disruptions that led to a host of other problems, like weight gain.
Our guts do not make good bacteria on their own. We have to manually replenish it with a combination of food like kimchi or fermented foods AND probiotic supplements.
Did you know – Stress and high emotions are the #1 way to strip your gut of a healthy ecosystem of beneficial bacteria? Think about the world we love in today, our emotional response is either an opportunity to thrive or to become physically sick thru the state of our gut and our emotional health.
For our bodies to break down food efficiently and effectively, we need a sufficient supply of digestive enzymes.
The pancreas produces some of these digestive enzymes, while others are produced in the stomach, and still others are secreted by the salivary glands and glands in the small intestines. Raw foods naturally contain their own enzymes that make their own digestion easier, sadly, the more refined the foods we eat are, the more digestive enzymes our body must produce on its own to absorb nutrients properly.
Unfortunately, as we age, the gut becomes less efficient and we naturally begin to produce fewer digestive enzymes. This results, in more difficulty for our bodies to completely break down the proteins, fats, and carbohydrates in the foods we eat.
As you can imagine this process can lead to a myriad of digestive health problems ranging from excessive gas and bloating to food allergies and food intolerances and eventually chronic disease.
Enzymes are present in all living animal and plant cells. They are actually the primary motivators of all natural biochemical processes. Simply put, life cannot exist without enzymes because they are essential components of every chemical reaction in the body. Enzymes are the only substance that can digest food and make it small enough to pass through the gastrointestinal mucosa into the bloodstream.
For all these reasons, I believe it is imperative that we use digestive enzymes with our meals. This will alleviate a lot of stress from both our digestive and immune systems. Food enzymes act like solvents that naturally break foods down into the components that allow them to be absorbed and used by the body. They work throughout the GI tract.
We use detoxzyme the most for the small size and powerful impact – but all the YL enzymes rock.
And there you go! Happy gut = happy thriving life


One of the many things I love about Young Living is the Seed to Seal policy on all of their products. This policy saves me so much time reading nutrition labels and checking for yuck ingredients. We can rest assured knowing that Inner Beauty Collagen does not contain fillers, preservatives, flavors, dyes, or other food additives that have no place in healthy collagen.

Let’s take a closer look at Inner Beauty Collagen’s label!

– 6g is the serving size with 25 servings per container. You can weigh it, or just do a little less than a scoop!
– Good quality products do not come cheap and collagen can be expensive. The price of Inner Beauty Collagen is about $2.50 a day or half the price of a Starbucks. Inner Beauty is to be taken only once a day where other brands are twice a day or even more often than that. This drives the price up as well. I like to look at the cost per day for collagen and other supplements. Compared to other leading brands, Inner Beauty comes in at about half the price.
– Inner Beauty Collagen has ZERO sugar. This is huge because so many of the other brands of collagen add sugar in some form to their product. Did you know there are nearly 60 different names for sugar? Some of the more common names are fruit juice concentrate, fructose, lactose, maltose, sucrose, and beet sugar.
– Inner Beauty Collagen contains 1 gram of fiber. I checked the top 10 other brands and none of them featured any fiber at all. Women need over 21 grams of fiber a day and most of us do not get enough of it. This ingredient from tapioca fiber is a plant-based carbohydrate that will not have an impact on your blood sugar, which makes it a keto-friendly ingredient. This fiber will also make your gut microbiome happy!
– 5 grams of protein is HUGE! Some of the other brands have as little as 1 gram of true protein or collagen. There’s so much to be said for the type of protein used for Inner Beauty. As mentioned in previous posts, collagen comes in different types and by different sources. When you do the research, you’ll understand why YL chose the type of marine collagen found in Inner Beauty Collagen.
– True collagen comes from animals. It is important to have sustainable, ethical, quality sources. Inner Beauty contains marine collagen that is sourced from sustainable fish using a proprietary hydrolysis manufacturing process that uses no harsh chemicals or solvents. Again, the Seed to Seal process is in action here and in all of Young Living’s products.
– There are no hidden ingredients with Inner Beauty. What you see is what you get.


If you’re someone who likes to read research, here are eight studies (one for each ingredient in our Inner Beauty Collagen) to help you get started down the rabbit hole. Keep in mind, this is a short list, not an exhaustive list.

The most obvious difference between liquid collagen and powder collagen is that liquid collagen comes in liquid form while powder collagen comes in powder form.

When you mix a powder collagen into liquid (coffee, tea, smoothie, whatever!) – it shockingly, I know, is now a liquid collagen.

Pre-made liquid collagen is a matter of convenience for many people and personal preference. It is often sold in single serving packets for taking it on the go. It generally has between 2.5-10 grams of collagen per serving (Young Living’s Bloom liquid collagen available internationally has 10 grams!) Some liquid collagen has added ingredients and less than desirable ingredients, so read those labels!
When liquid shots are manufactured, the collagen in these products begins as a powder anyway.

Powder collagen is virtually tasteless and can be mixed into your coffee, tea, smoothies, yogurt, or really anything you’d like! It is typically sold in sustainable bulk packaging that is more eco-friendly.


We’ve all heard of Hyaluronic acid but most of us don’t know why it’s so important to our body. Hyaluronic acid, also known as hyaluronan, is a clear, gooey substance that is naturally produced by your body. The largest amounts of it are found in your skin, connective tissue and eyes. Its main function is to retain water to keep your tissues well lubricated and moist.
Hyaluronic acid levels decrease as you get older. The loss can start as early as age 19 but it accelerates like a snowball as we hit our late 30’s. From age 47 to 60, your skin’s hyaluronic acid will be cut in half. Then from age 60 to 70, it is cut in half again! Shortly after 70, you’ll have zero Hyaluronic Acid in the Epidermis (outer layer of skin) (1)
So we need to plump up your skin and get closer to normal levels of these luscious water-holding molecules. There is good evidence that oral hyaluronic acid will improve skin tone and reduce fine lines and wrinkles, as well as prevent age-related health conditions.
One of the most common uses of hyaluronic acid is in treating and managing osteoarthritis, also known as wear-and-tear arthritis. Some alternative medicine practitioners contend that hyaluronic acid supplements can also prevent or treat many other health concerns, including:
* Accelerated wound healing
* Acid reflux
* Chronic fatigue syndrome
* Chronic pain
* Dry eyes
* Gum disease
* Eczema
* Erectile dysfunction
* Fibromyalgia
* Insomnia
* Osteoporosis
* Skin wrinkles
* Urinary tract infections
* Vaginal dryness
In 2017, a clinical trial by Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology looked at the effects of 12 weeks of treatment with oral Hyaluronic acid. They tested 60 people with crow’s feet (wrinkles near the eyes). Those lucky suckers experienced a reduction in wrinkle depth and volume. They also had improved skin luster and suppleness. I certainly could use a boost in suppleness

Two different concentrations of Hyaluronic acid were used. This is called dose-dependent results and it’s EXACTLY what you want to see in your studies. In this case, the people who were given more had the same results but in a shorter period of time.
Another study in the Journal of Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine reported impressive outcomes with hyaluronic acid supplements that contained biotin, vitamin C, and zinc.
This is exactly what YL added to their collagen. So you would be getting good results with or without the collagen, but when YL adds the collagen, and we’re punching father-time right in his stupid throat

. Anyway, this second study found that after 40 days, 20 women, ages 45 to 60, had the following:
Improved skin elasticity
Improved texture
Reduction in wrinkle depth
24% increase in skin hydration
Imagine if they were taking Collagen too, like we will be!
Oral Hyaluronic Acid is digested and absorbed well.
1. Ingestion of an oral Hyaluronic acid improves skin hydration, wrinkle reduction, elasticity, and skin roughness: results of a clinical study.
2. Oral Hyaluronic acid relieves Crow’s feet wrinkles: a double-blinded, placebo-controlled study, 12-week period.


There is a reason this product is called “Inner Beauty Collagen”.
Good skin health needs to include good skincare, there’s no denying that, but it also needs to consider what’s going on in the inside. Did you know that a new and exciting area of research is the Gut-Skin axis? Yep! While the underlying mechanisms of how the gut microbiome alters the skin’s immune system (thus health and appearance) and vice versa, are currently being studied, the connection is clear. Support your gut microbiome, and you support the health and appearance of your skin.
Let’s chat about the gut microbiome for a second. The gut microbiome refers to the balance of bacteria within the gut. These microbes are essential, not only for proper gut function, but for the health of the whole body–including your immune system, endocrine system, the brain and your skin! A healthy gut contains healthy flora that help prevent inflammation and if the microbiome is out of balance, it can directly influence the health of the skin. An imbalanced microbiome may be caused by a number of issues, such as a bacterial or parasitic infection, an overgrowth of bacteria (dysbiosis) or inflammation caused by food sensitivities.
So Why would Young Living choose to use Tapioca fiber in this new product to help? Because they understand the importance of inner health when it comes to our outer appearance and We know that adding fiber to our diets helps to promote a healthy gut microbiome. Young Living chose Tapioca fiber for this role as many people are intolerant to grains, gluten and wheat sourced fiber. Since tapioca is naturally grain and gluten-free, it makes it a perfect choice!
Many people don’t meet their body’s daily fiber needs, so it makes perfect sense to add it when possible. Tapioca fiber is a great prebiotic that feeds the beneficial bacteria in the gut which may lead to reducing harmful bacteria and the inflammation it can cause. You can basically think about tapioca fiber as a specialized plant fiber that “fertilizes” and stimulates the growth of healthy bacteria in the gut. It is also easy to digest, so it’s a good choice for people who suffer from digestive issues.
Feeding our gut high quality sources of prebiotic fibers (along with good nutrition!) can help you keep your skin glowing from the inside out.

When we are talking collagen, type II is the one most beneficial for supporting joint health, as it is only present in your cartilage. It makes up most of the protein molecules in your cartilage, and the connective tissue that protects your bones at the joints. Young Living’s AgilEase and BLM supplements contain Type II collagen!
Feel the aches of growing old? Get injured jumping the snake river on a rocket bike? Haven’t we all. Don’t sweat it – Agilease can help support your joints. It’s like BLM 2.0 and you only need to take it twice a day.
Here are the most common causes of multi-joint pain:
1) Osteoarthritis (OA)- caused by wear and tear with mild inflammation. Old injuries and being overweight only make things worse. As cartilage is lost, the underlying bone becomes affected.
2) Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) – Chronic inflammation, leads to simultaneous destruction/healing scar tissue and deforming of joints
Here are some key ingredients, and their benefits:
Frankincense resin powder – potent anti-inflammatory – multiple studies show it reduces joint pain within 7 days. OA pain scores were cut in half after 90 days. Increased grip strength in RA, decreased stiffness, increased function.
Calcium fructoborate – mimics boron (a mineral important in bone turnover) proven to improve knee discomfort during the first 14 days of treatment
Turmeric – improves pain function after 2-3 weeks
Glucosamine sulfate – used to build tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and the thick fluid that surrounds joints (to cushion them). Glucosamine – increases joint fluid. Sulfate – increases cartilage production. Increases joint function, decreases joint crackling and joint effusion (build up of unhealthy joint fluids). Progression of OA slowed by 50%. Study – after 3 years, 57% decrease in knee replacements. (don’t take this if you’re on Warfarin)
Type II Collagen (Un-denatured) – makes up 90% of collagen of our articular cartilage (the smooth, rubbery white tissue that covers the ends of bones where they come together to form joints). Combining collagen and Glucosamine reduces joint pain and tenderness in Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Both Agilease and BLM have Glucosamine sulfate and Type II Collagen.
Agilease also has:
Also added – Copiaba Vitality for overall wellness and contains a high amount of beta-caryophyllene (go look that up!) + Black spruce + Hyaluronic acid. Wintergreen and Clove – great for soothing sore muscles after a workout. Grab your Reference Guide to see what else these oils can do!!
Best practice is to commit to taking Agilease for 90 days to feel the full effects – it took a lifetime to get here, and it is gonna take time to allow your body to do what it does best – stay well!


One of the important ingredients in Inner Beauty Collagen is Superoxide Dismutase a.k.a. SOD.
SOD is an enzyme found in all living cells. An enzyme is a substance that speeds up certain chemical reactions in the body.
Superoxide dismutase helps break down potentially harmful oxygen molecules in cells. This can prevent damage to tissues.
The enzyme can serve as an anti-inflammatory agent and can also prevent precancerous cell changes.
* Osteoarthritis
* Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)
* Pneumonia
* Stress
* Cancer
* Inflammatory diseases
* Cystic fibrosis
* Ischemia
* Aging
* Neurodegenerative diseases
* Diabetes
* Many other conditions
We can learn all the science or just try it and see what it does for our own bodies!!


Our skin has its own barrier function, which protects it from the myriad of eternal stressors it is exposed to on a daily basis. Dehydration and dryness, ultraviolet rays, and chemicals are just a few of these offenders. Ceramides are lipids that play a key role in this barrier function, and because the number of ceramides we have in our skin has been shown to decrease with age, we can get really excited about the option we now have to include them in our daily regimen!
Oral supplementation of ceramides has been shown to:
+Increase water retention in the skin.
+Suppress water loss from the skin.
+Improve skin texture.
+Improve permeability function (this means our skin is better able to protect itself-and us-from harmful outside invaders).
What does all of this mean?? By including peach ceramides in our daily routine, we can look forward to smooth, supple, dewy, glowing, even-toned skin…healthy skin! We might even notice we look and feel younger and more vibrant, with fewer worry lines and a more even skin tone. That’s a lot to smile about. It truly is beauty from the inside-out!


Biotin, which is actually Vitamin H, is part of the B complex group of vitamins. All B vitamins help the body to convert food (carbohydrates) into fuel (glucose), which is used to produce energy.
These B vitamins often referred to as B complex vitamins, also help the body metabolize fats and protein.
Like all B vitamins, biotin is water-soluble, meaning the body does not store it. You need to replenish these vitamins daily.

Your body needs biotin (Vitamin H) to metabolize carbohydrates, fats, and amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein. Biotin is often recommended for strengthening hair and nails and is quite essential for the healthy growth of the entire body, which is why I think Young Living made sure to add it to this product. But let’s see what other amazing benefits you’ll get by having biotin daily!

Regulates Metabolism Levels:
Regular consumption of biotin can help in regulating and improving the metabolism levels in the body. Biotin uses the fat, proteins, and carbohydrates available in the metabolism and converts them into the desired form of energy. This means your body will be more effective at keeping energy levels consistent.

Protects the Heart:
One of the major vitamin B7 benefits is to protect the heart from possible problems. It has been observed that the regular consumption of biotin in an adequate quantity can stimulate the blood flow inside the heart and thus prevents the heart from many common problems. Biotin helps in increasing the high-density lipoprotein and decreasing the low-density lipoprotein which reduces heart risks. Um… sign me up!!!!

Promotes Brain Function:
Are you aware that vitamin H sources are also needed for the effective functioning of your brain? The brain needs biotin for the formation of the myelin sheath, one of the fatty substances which are needed for protecting the brain from the various problems. It also helps in regulating the normal functioning of the brain. Friends… this is HUGE!!! Supporting our brains helps all things, especially for us mamas!!!

Boost Immunity Power:
Foods high in biotin are needed for the desired generation of white blood cells, which are linked to boosting the immunity power of the body. SHAZAM!!!

Reduced Blood Sugar Levels and Control Diabetes:
Biotin helps in reducing blood sugar levels by increasing the production of insulin in the body and also by enhancing the glucose levels in the body. Vitamin b7, biotin, is known to be quite effective in controlling type-2 diabetes. Did you know this? It was new to me! Who do you need to tell?

Helps In Pregnancy and Breastfeeding:
Vitamin B7 plays a vital role during pregnancy as well as during breastfeeding time. The regular consumption of vitamin B7 foods brings their best benefits regarding pregnancy as well as when you are breastfeeding your newborn. In this case, it is not just you, who is getting the benefits of biotin, but your baby too gets the desired benefits. So so good!!

Biotin Suppresses Inflammation and Alleviates Allergic Disorders
Thanks to the anti-inflammation properties of biotin, it can be used against inflammation and allergic diseases. It is one of the best and the most popular vitamin B7 benefits for the body.
The anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic properties of biotin minimize the various problems and issues related to the inflammation. It also prevents the re-occurrence of allergies and inflammation by targeting the root cause of the problem with its benefits. We love when a product targets the ROOT cause! We aren’t all about just covering up things.

Repairs Tissues and Muscles:
Biotin not only removes the various health problems from the root but also helps in repairing the different affected tissues and muscles so that they can perform their desired functions once again.
The anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, as well as anti-allergic properties of biotin, helps in preventing the growth of problems in the tissues and muscles and thus make them repaired within no time.

It Treats Multiple Sclerosis:
Biotin is also known for treating multiple sclerosis problems. With the help of its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial problems, vitamin B7 brings the expected benefits against the problem of sclerosis in the body. This is also one of the benefits that health experts suggest to their various patients. Such profound information.

Aids Weight Loss:
Have you heard about the news that biotin benefits weight loss? Yes, it is true that biotin is one of those ingredients that can enhance the weight loss process and can provide you with the desired results within no time. I love this tid-bit of info!!

Maintains Healthy Skin and Nails:
If you are struggling with various skin problems and weak nails, then you should increase your Vitamin B7 intake. Vitamin B, or biotin, supports the production of fatty acids that nourish the skin, and help oil glands function properly.

Maintains Healthy Hair:
Biotin stimulates keratin production in hair and can increase the rate of follicle growth. With a regular intake of vitamin B7, you can support the health of your hair, strengthen the hair and add shine to it. Biotin also helps in preventing various health problems like hair loss, dandruff, scalp itchiness, etc.
How much biotin do you need for hair growth?
According to estimates, an intake of 30 micrograms (mcg) may be adequate. The average intake of biotin in Western countries, excluding the United States, is an estimated 35–70 mcg per day. Guess how much biotin the Inner Beauty Collagen has???
A whopping 150mcg – HOLLAR!!!

So, are you convinced there was a very GOOD reason that Young Living included biotin in our Inner Beauty Collagen. Simply amazing!!!

If you breathe, eat, and commune with people, then you’ll benefit from Longevity’s antioxidant and immune support and best of all, the way it supports our largest organ, our skin.
Thyme , clove, orange and frankincense are the four single oils that make up this powerhouse blend. I love to take this in a capsule because the thyme and clove are hot oils. It can be taken every day. You can also add a carrier oil to be easier on the stomach if it feels hot internally.
These oils are especially helpful if you’ve been exposed to radiation like flying on a plane or X-rays or other diagnostic tests
Longevity Essential Oil is a very powerful antioxidant support oil blend that helps to neutralize free radicals. The ORAC value of this oil is 1,500,000 µTE/100g. That is greater than any food or single essential oil that has been recorded!
Oxidative stress and free radicals cause aging; beyond the normal aging process. And our skin and internal organs take that hit. All of us are subject to day-to-day oxidative damage.
The good news is one of the best ways we can decrease the amount of oxidative stress is by increasing our uptake of antioxidants. Again this one is an antioxidant powerhouse.
What is an ORAC Value?
ORAC tells you the antioxidant capacity of a food item. It is the only test that measures the degree of free-radical inhibition of a food item!
Most of us think that berries such as blueberries and strawberries have high antioxidant values; however, most essential oils knock the food values out of the ballpark!
For instance here are some common values for food items:
* Ningxia Wolfberries = 30,300 µTE/100g
* Blueberries = 2,400 µTE/100g
* Spinach = 1,400 µTE/100g
* Carrots = 210 µTE/100g
Not bad. Now, look at the values of these oils:
* Longevity Essential Oil = 1,500,000 µTE/100g
* Clove Essential Oil = 1,078,700 µTE/100g
* Myrrh Essential Oil = 379,800 µTE/100g
* Fennel Essential Oil = 238,400 µTE/100g
Wow! So now you can see that the value for Longevity essential oil blend (and Clove for that matter) is HUGE!!! So much for making sure you are eating your carrots and taking your vitamins every single day for antioxidants.

Switch that motto to – Are you taking your daily essential oils?
Young Living believes that taking an antioxidant supplement is so important that it should be taken everyday. And, as such, they make it available as a Dietary Supplement for easier consumption.
Why are Antioxidants so Important?
Antioxidants protect the skin by attaching themselves to free radicals, which minimizes the potential harmful effects on the inside and is important for youthful-looking skin on the outside. Truly one of the best oil blends for protecting skin from the aging process.
Wanna see the study done on this blend on how it affects energy levels just by inhaling it?
Here’s the facts going into the study.
• Randomized, double-blinded, and placebo controlled

What is an antioxidant?
A molecule that inhibits the oxidation of other molecules.
Oxidation is a chemical reaction that can produce free radicals, leading to chain reactions that may damage cells.

How does oxidative stress affect the skin?
Oxidative stress speeds up the aging process. Specifically, it contributes to the loss of collagen and elastin fibers, resulting in fine wrinkles, sagging, and texture changes. It can also trigger dark spots and other discoloration. So not only do we naturally lose collagen production as we age, our bodies oxidative stress greatly impacts our collagen production and our skin.

But it’s not just about wrinkles—oxidative stress affects skin’s basic functions:
– reduced barrier function
– increased sensitivity
– decreased moisture.

The human body naturally produces free radicals and the antioxidants to counteract the damaging effects of free radicals. However, in most cases, free radicals far outnumber the naturally occurring antioxidants. In order to maintain the balance, a continual supply of external sources of antioxidants is necessary in order to obtain the maximum benefits of antioxidants.
