Look and Feel Amazing with Gorgeous Greens – Starting my new year by creating a new, good habit, I am trying the So Body Co, Georgeous Greens 30-day challenge, to help detoxify and revitalise my body with all-natural energy.
So Body Co produce Collagen powder supplements. Ranging for the Gorgeous Greens that we are trying to Peptigen+ Age Defying Multi-Collagen and CollaSlim.
As we have mentioned in previous articles, Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body that is responsible for many processes. It is a major component of our bone, skin, muscles, tendons, and cartilage, and is quite literally the substance that holds our body together.
Our bodies naturally produce less collagen as we age. Therefore, with a little help from our friends at So Body Co, their natural, active collagen-enriched formulations contain 5-types of essential collagen to help support and reverse your pro-ageing journey.
Founded on the philosophy of simplicity, their mission is to renew modern wellness by making it simple, uncomplicated, and accessible.
Packed with natural, powerhouse ingredients – superfoods, vitamins, minerals, and collagen essentials – their products are formulated and backed by science, ensuring each scoop isn’t just easy-to-drink, but also highly-effective with enough power to regenerate and replenish your health from the inside-out.
Not only packed with essential goodness including hyaluronic acid, but Gorgeous Greens is also a great source of vitamin C which helps contributes to:
Collagen formation (great for your skin)
Protects cells from oxidative stress (helps keep “ageing, free radicals” in check)
Reduces tiredness and fatigue
Helps your immune system
To help create regularity, try leaving the pack out where you see it. Also try to drink it at the same time each day.
Gorgeous Greens as the name may suggest tastes like vegetables, if you’re finding it a little unpalatable then you might find adding a splash of apple juice or a pinch of mint makes it more to your liking.
How To Prepare
Add a scoop to 150ml of ice-cold water, optionally add 10g of So Body Co collagen and shake.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) – Our skin cells produce this moisture-binding molecule which can retain over 1,000 times its weight in water. HA is critical in maintaining skin hydration.
Spinach Powder – A plant with remarkable abilities to restore energy, increase vitality and improve the quality of the blood. Spinach contains antioxidants, helping to fight free radicals. It can help increase collagen production and the vitamin A can help your skin retain moisture.
Apple Powder – High in fibre, vitamin C and polyphenols, which function as antioxidants. Also contains Biotin – natural growth steroids for hair and nails.
Cucumber Powder – Cucumbers contain antioxidants, including flavonoids and tannins, which can prevent the accumulation of harmful free radicals.
Acai Berry – Acai has been recognised as one of the world’s highest ORAC foods. ORAC is a measurement of how well antioxidants can neutralise free radicals. The higher the value, the better the body utilises it to fight free radicals. Acai has more than double the antioxidants of blueberries and nearly ten times that of grapes.
Kale Powder – King of the super greens, Kale is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet. A cup of kale has more vitamin C than a whole orange. Kale is loaded with powerful antioxidants like quercetin and kaempferol plus important minerals such as calcium, potassium, and magnesium.
Flaxseed Oil – Flaxseed is a rich source of healthy fat, antioxidants, and fibre. They contain protein, lignans and the essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA also known as omega-3). Omega-3 is a crucial part of your skins lipid content and can reduce collagen damage.
Avocado Extracts – Rich in fatty acids as well as vitamins B2, D, A, E and K and potassium. Often used in the cosmetics industry as a skin-nutrient, recent studies suggest it shows promise as an anti-inflammatory compound too.
Wheatgrass Powder – Especially high in vitamins A, C and E plus iron, magnesium, calcium, and essential amino acids. Wheatgrass contains over 70% chlorophyll which is a potent antioxidant, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory.
Spirulina – A type of blue-green algae that contains several nutrients, including B vitamins, beta-carotene, and vitamin E as well as a whole host of minerals such as calcium, magnesium, zinc, and selenium. Spirulina is very rich in gamma linolenic acid (GLA) which can help keep hair shiny and reduce inflammation in the skin.
Kelp – A natural source of vitamins A, B1, B2, C, D and E, as well as minerals including zinc, iodine, magnesium, iron, potassium, copper, and calcium. It contains the highest natural concentration of calcium of any food, 10 times more than milk.
Chlorella – This nutrient-dense algae has many nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and omega-3 fats all helping to keep our skin, nails, and hair healthy.
