Behind the nutrients:
We have a “synergistic” policy at Body Kitchen where we properly mix ingredients that support one another. We believe this is a must if you’re trying to not only produce results, but to retain them.
Now let’s take a look at some of the key skin-support ingredients in this smoothie recipe:
Body Kitchen Collagen: collagen in the most abundant protein in the human body and Body Kitchen has formulated a clinical collagen of optimal quality that you can incorporate in recipes such as this one. Supplying each muffin with 5g of high quality collagen Di-Peptides. PROTEIN UP!
Pumpkin Seeds: studies on pumpkin seed extract have been going around for a long time and these have shown great results in helping conditions relating to prostate health. Dermatologists are starting to recognize its magic due to its unsaturated fatty acids content which can soothe inflammation and acne-prone skin. Get spooky this Halloween, add some pumpkin to your BK!
Flax Seeds: flax seeds contain lignans, a fiber compound, that help balance the production of androgens that can target acne. In adults, flax seeds help improve the condition of fine lines and wrinkles. Flax seeds are rich in Omega fatty acids that help in keeping the skin tight and lessen sagging as one ages. And because of their nutty flavor, they’re a great skin-health option to add to any smoothie. Go ahead, get nutty!
Bananas: you probably heard bananas being rich in certain minerals such as potassium. Bananas are all about water-balance in our bodies so they can create a significant difference in re-hydrating dry skin, making it soft and supple. You have our permission to go bananas!
