Lately I’ve been reading about the connection between diet and the effect it has on your appearance (hair, skin, nails, etc….). So far my two favorite books have been “Eating for Beauty” by David Wolfe and “Ageless Beauty” by Natalia Rose.
After being inspired by that today I wanted to share some minerals that are key in beauty and where to find them:).
1. Silicon: Silicon is present in almost all areas of the body. Silicon is imperative in the formation of a healthy teeth and jaw formation. Silicon is also considered a yoga mineral because muscle tissues contain at least 2% silicon allowing for flexibility and elacsity.
Foods containing silicon and how to use them:
~nettles (try nettle tea)
2. Sulfur: Sulfur is like so key for beauty It adds a “glow to the skin”. Is found in all connective tissue and collagen. It also plays a big role in healthy hair, skin and nails.
It is largely found in MSM, which is a superfood I highly recommend trying. It’s cheap and amazing!
3. Zinc: This is the last one I’ll touch on today but zinc is amazing. Zinc is a key member of a group of enzymes that impact collagen which gives you healthy skin complexion. It also works with vitamin E to mantain healthy reproductive organs.
Foods containing zinc:
~pumpkin seeds (trail mix, raw)
*I wouldn’t recommend a zinc supplement because it is toxic in large doses:)
I hope this helps!
