Have you heard of the word “nutracosmetics“? This refers to supplements that are taken orally that produce a cosmetic benefit. At Evolutions Medical Spa, we believe that taking care of your skin starts from within and we recommend nutracosmetics to enhance your home skincare regimen.
If you are looking for supplements in Santa Barbara that work wonders, look no further than the SuperFood Solution supplements that come in three different formulas: NanoGreens, NanOmega, and NanoPro. We’ve blogged about the benefits of all three of these in a past post.
The supplements come in powder form, making it easy to take with you to work, school and vacation and can be mixed with 6-8 ounces of water for a healthy drink. What we’d like to share with you today is that there are alternatives to taking the supplements with water. Some of our favorite recipes follow:
Recipes for the NanoGreens Supplement –
- Add a 1/4 scoop to 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce and this becomes a kids favorite!
- Stir in 1/2 scoop or more to 6 ounces of yogurt and get an extra dose of probiotics.
Recipes for the NanOmega Supplement –
- Thoroughly blend some ice with your favorite berries (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries) in water, green tea or fruit juice. Add a scoop of NanOmega for a few seconds and enjoy an antioxidant fruit smoothie.
- Add a scoop of NanOmega to 8 to 10 ounces of extra pulp orange juice instantly adding extra calcium and vitamin D for strong bones and fiber.
Recipes for the NanoPro Supplement –
- Blend ice, whole or low fat milk and 1/4 teaspoon of malted milk (or 2 tablespoons of Ovaltine instead of malt) and a scoop of NanoPro for a fortified chocolate super shake.
- Lactose intolerant people can enjoy a scoop of NanoPro with enriched soy, rice or almond milk.
- 1/4 teaspoon NanoGreens
- 1/4 teaspoon NanoPro
- 1 tablespoon plain, organic yogurt
Mix in small bowl. Cleanse and dry your face. Use a facial brush or your fingers to apply to face, neck and top of hands. Let stand for 20-30 minutes. Shower off or use warm towel to wipe off.
