Skin Health

Upload protocol

Our skin is our body’s largest organ and the first line of defense between our inner physical selves and the outside world. As such, it is subject to environmental stressors, such as ultraviolet exposure, as well as exposure to pollution, mechanical abrasion, and micro-organisms. The skin also plays a major role in our appearance. A good skincare routine and protection from the elements help keep our skin healthy and young-looking. 

Healthy skin requires hydration, structural support, and proper skin barrier function. Key nutrients involved with supporting the skin include collagen, keratin, ceramides, as well as essential vitamins and minerals. 

Look and feel your best by giving your skin the same care and support you give to the rest of your health—starting with the right nutrients.

Youthful Legs

Take 2 softgels daily, preferably in the morning, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner

Youthful Legs helps maintain healthy circulation in leg veins and youthful leg appearance using a micronized extract of sweet orange peel, which promotes healthy, comfortable legs.

Encouraging healthy, beautiful legs all comes down to your vascular system. The complex circulatory system in your legs can weaken with age. But diosmin extract from orange peels has been shown to encourage leg circulation and comfort by helping to maintain the tone and elasticity of your leg veins.

Diosmin helps inhibit inflammatory factors to support vascular health, making it an ideal nutrient for supporting healthy legs.

Youthful Legs benefits:

  • Supports healthy circulation in leg veins
  • Helps promote healthy & comfortable legs
  • Helps inhibit inflammatory factors to support vascular health
  • Helps maintain tone & elasticity of leg veins

Skin Restoring Ceramides

Take 1 capsule daily with food, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner

The ceramides naturally present in our skin help retain moisture to give it that young, supple appearance. These epidermal fats help lock moisture into your skin for a youthful, healthy appearance. But over time, your body’s natural supply of ceramides is depleted. Wheat contains these same ceramides, but you can’t get enough from wheat in your diet to make a difference. Skin Restoring Ceramides is a convenient oral supplement that smooths the appearance of wrinkles, hydrating and revitalizing your skin from within.

Ceramide levels naturally decrease as we age, making it hard to maintain smooth, supple, healthy skin as we get older.

Skin Restoring Ceramides benefits:

  • Smooths the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles
  • Promotes healthy skin hydration & comfort
  • Encourages healthy ceramide levels in aging skin
  • Contains concentrated, clinically studied wheat ceramides

Biotin

Take 1 capsule daily with meals, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner

Biotin, sometimes referred to as vitamin B7, is a water-soluble vitamin that belongs to the vitamin B family. It’s necessary for the production of keratin, a protein that is a structural component of hair, nails, and skin.

Biotin is used as a cofactor in the body, supporting the activities of enzymes involved in fatty acid synthesis, gluconeogenesis (the generation of glucose from non-carbohydrate sources), and amino acid breakdown. Biotin is also needed for cellular energy production as a cofactor for the TCA-cycle, or Krebs cycle, enzymes. (1)(2)

A growing body of evidence further suggests biotin may play an important role in gene expression.1 Biotin is essential for the production of the protein keratin and therefore supports healthy hair, skin, and nails. (3)(4)(5)(6)
