Beauty Clinic: Supplements for dull skin and low energy
Q. I have got the winter dulls (skin) and lows (energy). Are there any super supplements you can suggest to get me through until the daffodils start blooming again? A. Most people we know are feeling and looking much the same. So here are some ideas to brighten up the dull days.
Pharmacist Shabir Daya recommends Amazing Grass Original Green SuperFood, a real powerhouse of whole food nutrition your body needs, with none of the fillers and non-essential ingredients it doesn’t. It provides a full spectrum of alkalising organic whole leaf greens, antioxidant-rich fruits and herbs, plus acai berry and maca with probiotics and enzymes to help digestion and absorption. We are fans, having discovered it really does lift vitality and stamina.
For brighter, more healthy-looking skin, we favour a vitamin C product called Altrient C, a favourite of Gwyneth Paltrow’s. It can make a noticeable difference (and the compliments came unsolicited). Mix it into juice or coconut water for a multiple whammy.
At this stage of the winter, most people’s levels of vitamin D are way lower than optimal and a significant number are deficient in this vital vitamin (actually strictly speaking a hormone), which is manufactured by the action of sunlight on our skins. It is now known to be indispensable for health in all manner of ways from strong bones to mood regulation to your immune system. We take a squish of Better You D Lux 3000 Spray daily under the tongue, the fastest most reliable way to get D3 into your system.
