    Eating For Beauty

    Ok, have to appeal to the vanity side of things I've taken Sulphur (MSM) and lawd have mercy the stuff gives me brutal headaches. I cant get used to that at all, at all.

    Tumeric powder is not only good for the skin but it is great when you have a cold or a sinus infection - any low grade infection actually. It works really well at settling any infections down and calming an upset tummy much like ginger does.

    Other than that, I think they are missing avocados, apple cider vinegar and lemons from this list but its a good list nonetheless.

    ======================================

    We all have the desire for beauty – this is not only good but it is also very natural. Beauty is a sign of health and therefore our primal instinct is to reproduce with other healthy humans. This gives the species the greatest chance of survival.

    So, beauty is a natural desire on the outside - however it should also be a desire for us to be healthy from the inside out. Not only is it more 'real' it actually is more sustainable and good for you!

    Almost daily we are bombarded by deceptive marketing strategies trying to convince us that beauty is only one purchase away. In fact these companies are trying to create you as a customer for life with artificial and expensive beauty products.

    The first step is becoming aware of and then ignoring this advertising. Inside 'Hungry For Change' we explored the concept of eating for beauty with David Wolfe who is a very passionate advocate of using nutrition to improve appearance, vitality and health. His book ‘Eating For Beauty’ details exactly this.

    There are a few key concepts from ‘Eating For Beauty’ that David considers to be the most important to getting that beautiful glowing skin from the inside out.

    Silicon: This mineral contains a number of hidden properties and has been toted the world’s greatest beauty secret. Silicon is present throughout our entire body and plays an important role in maintaining the elasticity of cell walls. Therefore is most important in preventing premature aging.

    Sulfur: Sulfur has a significant impact on our complexion, hair and how our skin glows. Essentially it is within all of our connective tissue supporting and connecting all of our organs. It has the ability to continuously build and rebuild collagen and keratin which is important for hair, skin and nails to get their shine whilst also playing an important role in driving nutrients into and out of cells, blood sugar regulation, tissue repair and our immune system.

    Zinc: Zinc promotes cell division, cell repair, cell growth and the production of white blood cells. This mineral is essential for cleansing the liver, repairing tissue and oxygenating the body. A zinc deficiency is directly linked to Acne, hair loss and other skin disorders.


    Beauty foods are foods that contain high concentrations of the minerals sulfur, silicon, zinc, iron and/or magnesium, David refers to the following as some of the best beautifying foods that you can include in your diet. These foods will have an alkalizing reaction with your body, anti-parasitical effects and contain high levels of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.

    In the list below you can see some of the top ‘beautifying foods’ recommended by David Wolfe his book ‘Eating For Beauty:

    Aloe Vera – Believed to be a food of long-lasting youth and rapid healing. The anti-inflammatory power in acute inflammation is one of it’s best known actions. The gel of the Aloe Vera can be used topically or add to your daily juice.

    Coconut Oil – Contains a number of health giving properties including being high in antioxidants, control blood sugar levels, assist the thyroid gland and repair the skin. You can eat it straight, blend into smoothies, use in cooking and on the skin.

    Cucumbers – Fantastic for cleansing our bodies. The skins of cucumbers are high in silicon although are often grown with pesticides and waxed in stores so it is best to choose organic.

    Figs – Super high in calcium and other minerals. They are also contain large amounts of fiber and therefore beneficial for our digestive system. They have been described as being the most alkalizing if all dried fruits.

    Hemp Seed – One of the most nutritionally complete foods containing all nine essential amino acids making them exceptionally high in protein whilst also high in omega 3 and 6 fatty acids and minerals. Eat them as a snack, add to a salad or use the hemp oil in your smoothie.

    Macadamia Nuts – Contain high levels of selenium needed to build the body’s most powerful enzyme. The macadamia nut’s overall combination of fatty acids and zinc makes it wonderful skin beautifier.

    Pumpkin Seeds – A wonderful source of B vitamins, many minerals (including zinc), phytonutrients and fatty oils. All of these contributing to their ability to produce clear and glowing skin. They also have anti-parasite properties.

    Turmeric – Considered a restorative food, with strong anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-cancer and anti-microbial characteristics. Well known for its ability to purify blood which is essential for clear skin.

    Great Post LB...

    I think we need to stress to people more that what you put in your body has more of an impact on looks than any creams or oils you put on the outside of your body... as a matter of fact, time and time again i see reports that those skin expensive creams and stuff have no impact because the molecules are too big to permeate the skin...

    Eat healthy and clean food like fruit, vegetables, nuts, red meat, salads, yogurt and dairy products. These are high in vitamins, minerals, nutrients, fiber, iron and calcium that brighten your skin, remove wrinkles,acne, pimples and black heads from your skin.

    Fresh fruits and raw vegetables are the best choice for the beauty diet.
    Eat more fresh fruits, green vegetables, and drink more fresh fruits juices to enhance you beauty and skin health.
    Also take green tea for the better skin health and get rid of the different skin diseases.
