Establishing a great hair, skin, and nail care routine is a wonderful start to getting a radiant appearance. We need to remember, however, that our hair, skin, and nails rely on important nutrients provided through beauty foods to grow and stay strong.
We created a super-charged smoothie recipe designed to provide all the key nutrients needed for a youthful glow and to support beauty from within.
Before you get out your blender, learn why each ingredient was selected to help support your hair, skin, and nail goals.
Consuming an adequate amount of high-quality protein each day is essential because protein provides the amino acids needed to support keratin production throughout the body. Keratin is a type of protein (like collagen) that maintains the health and structure of your hair, skin, and nails. That’s why consuming high-quality protein daily is an important step in supporting strong hair, supple skin, and healthy nails.

Many of us think of fats as something that should be avoided. While some unhealthy sources of fats should be limited, polyunsaturated fats, like omega-3 fatty acids, are good because they help nourish your skin AND your hair. These are the building blocks of our cell membranes which have been shown to maintain hydrated skin and nurture hair follicles to keep hair shiny and full.

Antioxidants are a popular ingredient in skincare and are also beneficial when consumed as part of your diet. Super-charged vitamins such as vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta-carotene have antioxidant properties that help to protect cells from free-radical damage. Consuming a diet rich in antioxidants can protect your skin from cellular damage, sun damage, and early signs of aging, as well as protect your hair follicles from breaking down. Vitamin C is also shown to stimulate collagen production in the skin for added support.
Fruits and vegetables are a great, natural source of these antioxidant vitamins and other beneficial phytonutrients shown to support wellbeing.

Minerals might not be a micro-nutrient that is top of mind for many, but they’re present in every living cell in the body. Minerals have essential roles in many of the body’s functions and when we are deficient, it can start to wreak havoc on our overall well-being, including our hair, skin, and nails.
