👋 Hello Friends!
Ever looked in the mirror and wondered, “How can I keep my skin looking young and vibrant?” You’re not alone! Many of us aspire to age gracefully as the years pass by. The good news is that today I’ve got some secrets to share with you! ✨
The Power Duo for Ageless Skin: Collagen & Hyaluronic Acid 💫
As we age, our skin tells a story. Fine lines and wrinkles are often inevitable. But did you know that Collagen with Hyaluronic Acid can make a big difference? A ground-breaking meta-analysis involving over 1,000 participants revealed remarkable improvements in skin hydration, elasticity, and wrinkles for regular collagen users. Collagen is also quality protein for our hair, nails 💅, joints, muscles 💪 , and even bones 🦴. Best of all, collagen is easy on the gut and well tolerated by most people, even those with IBS or autoimmune disease. Our collagen has the unique ingredient Hyaluronic Acid, which also improves skin hydration, elasticity, and wrinkle depth in clinical studies. Watch my short video above to find out my favorite ways to use collagen!
Turning Back the Metabolic Clock with Berberine Pro 🕰️
Recall the days when you could enjoy a hearty bowl of pasta for dinner without a second thought about calories or carbs, all thanks to your youthful metabolism? In our 40s and beyond, our metabolism often slows down by 10% per decade. Any rise in blood sugar or insulin can accelerate inflammation and aging, often referred to as “Inflammaging”! 🔥 This is where Berberine Pro can be a real game-changer. This natural extract from the root of the Berberine plant enhances insulin sensitivity and blood sugar uptake. It’s excellent for managing insulin resistance, prediabetes, diabetes, and even fatty liver disease. It can benefit anyone looking to improve their metabolism. It also has anti-inflammatory benefits and antimicrobial properties to kill bad bacteria and yeast in the gut microbiome. Additionally, Berberine Pro contains Alpha-Lipoic Acid, an antioxidant that’s good for your brain and mitochondria (the energy powerhouses of your cells). I consistently incorporate Berberine Pro into my supplement routine, having experienced noticeable benefits to my overall health. Watch my short video which sums up why I consider Berberine Pro to be an anti-aging supplement.
Vitamin D3: “The Longevity Hormone”🌟
It’s important to maintain optimal Vitamin D (the “sunshine vitamin”☀️) especially during the winter! Vitamin D3, often termed the “longevity hormone,” plays a vital role in mood regulation, immune function, hormonal balance, metabolic processes, bone density, cancer prevention, and overall well-being.🙌 Keeping your vitamin D level within the optimal range of 60-80 ng/mL is crucial for fostering health and longevity. Our Vitamin D3 is combined with Vitamin K2, which facilitates the proper utilization of calcium by directing it towards your bones 🦴 and away from your coronary arteries🫀.
Key Antioxidants: Vitamin C, Glutathione, and CoQ10 🛡️
To keep your cells healthy and combat free radicals💥, my favorite antioxidants for anti-aging are Vitamin C, Glutathione, and CoQ 10. They work on a cellular level to reverse damage from UV radiation, pollution, pesticides, cleaning chemicals, and charred food. These antioxidants are key for promoting detox pathways in your liver as well as keeping your mitochondria healthy.

Mushrooms are one of the only plant sources of Vitamin D! They are also loaded in B vitamins. Mushrooms are an excellent source of beta-glucan fiber which is good for the gut microbiome.
This is a lighter, dairy-free risotto recipe!
1 cup of arborio rice
32 oz carton of organic chicken broth
1 medium yellow onion, finely diced
3 large cloves of garlic, minced
3 tablespoons of fresh thyme, finely chopped
16 oz package of portobello mushrooms, sliced
3 large kale leaves (remove the large fibrous stem) and chop into small pieces
Extra virgin olive oil
Fresh Italian parsley for serving
In a large and deep pan, sauté the onions and garlic with 3 tablespoons of olive oil for a few minutes until fragrant on medium-low heat.
Add the sliced mushrooms and thyme. Drizzle 2 more tablespoons of olive oil over the mushrooms and allow them to cook for 5 minutes until they brown and shrink in size. Add 1/2 tsp of salt and 1/4 tsp black pepper.
Add the arborio rice and 1/3 of the carton of chicken broth. Bring to a boil and then cover and reduce the temperature to allow it to simmer for 5 minutes.
When the broth has been fully absorbed, add another 1/3 carton of broth, along with the chopped kale, and another 1/2 tsp of salt and 1/4 tsp black pepper. Bring to a boil and then cover and reduce the temperature to allow it to simmer for 5 minutes.
Add the final 1/3 of the carton of chicken broth, cover, and let simmer for another 5 minutes until the rice is cooked, and all the fluid is absorbed.
Serve with some finely chopped fresh Italian parsley!
Wishing you all a joyful and healthy week,
