You are what you eat. And your skin is only as healthy as your diet. By eating antioxidant rich foods you can unquestionably prolong ageing.
Thankfully, there are a lot of antioxidant rich foods. And very few are better than spinach and kale. Great idea to start any smoothie with those ingredients.
Next up is one of my favourite green smoothie ingredients. Lemon. They're too sour for me to eat whole but a blender is the perfect way to get them into your body. Fibre and all. This recipe uses 1/2 a lemon but step it up to a whole one if you can. Especially if you feel a cold coming on.
To combat the sour we add dates and coconut water. Now our super healthy concoction tastes good too.
Importantly, don't forget protein. It promotes metabolism and keeps you full. We love almonds but they can easily be swapped around for sunflower or pumpkin seeds. Beyond the protein, we're chasing vitamin E, as this will protect against lipid peroxidation. We want to fight off free radicals and hydrate the skin, leaving it to look more youthful.
The Secret Ingredient
There's few superfood powders on the market that are backed by science. Our Forever Young is one of them thanks to our Naturopath. Reece developed this recipe after reading peer reviewed articles that showed vitamin C and collagen tangibly impacting skin.
It was our job to then find the best sources of each. After lengthy research we found that the highest quality collagen comes from wild caught fish. So we sourced the best stuff, which doesn't have a scent or taste. Just freeze-dried, undetectable snapper.
And then we found the two strongest sources of vitamin C on the planet, Kakadu Plum and Camucamu. One teaspoon is 12 times your daily vitamin C needs. That's enough to prevent free radicals from causing disease or destructing the health of your skin.
So add Forever Young to your smoothies. The key is to have it consistently. The next time I shoot a bunch of videos I'll be making sure that this smoothie is on the menu everyday beforehand.
