We are so excited to be offering a fantastic range of supplements by Advanced Nutrition Programme. We want to help our clients skin not only topically with facials and skin care but internally with vitamins and supplements.
So why do we need supplements?
There are many reasons why we should be including supplements into our balanced diets but the main reason being a good diet alone isn’t enough. By the time the food hits your plate it has lost 57% of it’s nutrients meaning that a lot of us are deficient in many vital vitamins.
So what are the key vitamins for a healthy skin?
Vitamin A- Often over looked but Vitamin A is essential for maintaining a normal skin and helps to strengthen and repair.
Vitamin B5- Fantastic at reducing inflammation.
Vitamin C- Helps to stimulate collagen production so is great for anti-ageing.
Vitamin E- Full of anti-oxidants which help protect your skin from free radicals and helps with tissue repair.
What are probiotics?
Probiotics are essential to help maintain harmony in your gut. They are the friendly bacteria which comes from live cultures which we normally get from dairy products. It is important to help keep the bacteria in your gut well balanced to help protect your body from illnesses and if your gut is happy, your skin will be happy. Did you know that 97% of the happy hormone Serotonin is made in the gut so also if your gut is happy you will feel happier! Probiotics are great for people who suffer with skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, eczema and stressed skin.
So that is a very brief over view of why we need supplements in addition to a healthy, balanced diet but if you do have any particular skin concerns or would just like to help your well-being, do consider adding them to your routine and you will see the benefits. The staff at The Pink Shed have had training with the Advanced Nutrition Programme so we will be more than happy to help you choose the perfect supplements for your needs.
