The good news is you can eat your way to being better looking. We've selected some of our favourite Juicery products to give you that beauty edge you desire.
When it comes to beauty we always think of the external first, but have you stopped to consider how what you're putting in your body is affecting how you look? No it's not all genetics. Our food choices give us some control over the ageing process.
Skin is the bodies largest organ, and shows the first signs of our health and ageing. Complexion dull? Blotchy? Prone to break outs? You may want to cut back on processed foods. Instead increase your intake of good fats such as raw nuts, seeds, hemp and coconut oil. Eat as much brightly coloured fruit and vegetables as possible as the antioxidants, nutrients, vitamins and minerals all help reduce the affects of ageing.
TRY: Sip the Reset juice. The vitamin C is great for skin, cayenne pepper has a high content of vitamin A and beta carotene boosting skin cell renewal. Or grab a Cup of Youth smoothie - the berries are packed with antioxidants your face will thank you for later.
Our hair needs nourishment - eye lashes and brows included. Without sufficient nutrients it will thin, break and be lack lustre. Our hair is composed primarily of protein, so its crucial to ensure you're getting enough protein and iron in your diet. Stress also has a big impact on hair health so make the time for that yoga class!
TRY: The Pret a Protein juice for protein and iron or grab a Mango Green Protein smoothie - the hemp seeds are packed with plant dense protein.
Nails are also dependant on a balanced diet, otherwise they split, chip and break. They are one of the bodies tell tale ways of showing your health. Pale nails? White spots? Breaking? These all have something to say about what's going on inside your body. Protein is crucial for nail health, as is calcium, iron, zinc and vitamin B.
TRY: The Power Breaky smoothie - the seeds are full of calcium, or a fresh coconut water will provide internal hydration essential to nail health.
Tooth decay is an obvious one. Sugar reeks havoc on our tooth and gum health causing a wealth of problems in our mouths. Fruit and vegetables actually help whiten our teeth and prevent stains - in particular strawberries and leafy greens.
Handy hint: sip acidic drinks such as citrus fruits with a straw to stop them stripping your teeth of its natural enamel. And always rinse teeth with a glass of water after something that may stain your teeth such as berries or red wine.
TRY: Add some Matcha powder to your Mango Green smoothie, it reduces the bacteria and toxins in the mouth. Or grab the Pro juice, the probiotics suppress the growth of bad bacteria preventing gingivitis.
Unhealthy eyes loose their twinkle, and eye sight can deteriorate. AMD (age related macular degeneration) and damaged eye blood vessels have been linked to unstable blood sugar levels, eating too many refined carbohydrates and processed foods. The antioxidants present in bright and dark fruit and vegetables stops the free radicals that enhance age related eye problems.
TRY: The Fix or Pret a Protein juice - the green veggies are packed lutein and zeaxanthin, which promote vision and the health of the retina.
Our posture is also influenced by our diet. Not enough protein can can lead to muscle degeneration, and not enough calcium has a negative impact on bone density - both these influence our posture over time. Vitamin D, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous are essential for maintaining a good posture and healthy bones.
TRY: A Glow juice, the beetroot is great for maintaining lean muscles, or grab the Shit smoothie - the tahini and almond milk are brimming with calcium, and the cacao has plenty of magnesium. Go sip them in some sunshine to get your daily vitamin D intake.
What we eat obviously affects our body, which obviously affects how we look. And yet it goes further than that. A diet high in sugar and processed food has been shown to rapidly excellerate ageing. As we saw above, a bad diet negatively influences various parts of our body, and long term it can also lead to many metabolic illnesses such as diabetes and heart disease.
TRY: An E3 Live shot suppresses cravings, and stops you binge eating. Or try one of our healthy wraps - these tasty concoctions are wheat, gluten and dairy free and packed with veggies and protein to keep you full for longer.
In summary its the same old story, yet we love to hear it again.
Eat: A balanced diet with as many vegetables as possible, and a large dollop of fresh fruit, nuts, seeds and grains on the side. Eating a broad range of whole foods will ensure you're getting all the essential nutrients, minerals and vitamins your body needs
Avoid: Overly processed foods, junk food and excessive amounts of white carbohydrates, dairy and sugar.
