Chlorella the Green Superfood

Chlorella SupplementsChlorella is one of the most ancient living organisms, and is a green algae,  found in water.  Chlorella is an extremely nutritious food, mostly because of the abundance of “Chlorophyll” .

Chlorophyll is often described as the life force of plants, a little bit like our blood, but the difference being that our blood contains iron and Chlorophyll is rich in magnesium.

Chlorella is packed with various vitamins and minerals as well as the amino acids from the Chlorophyll (pure plant protein), it can boost our immune system and fight Free Radical Damage.

Other benefits of Chlorella are the detoxifying effect it can have on your liver, it also improves digestion and constipation. Chlorella can combat inflammation by reducing the amount of acid in your body, making it a more alkaline place, which is less friendly to bacteria.

Chlorella benefits your skin by repairing damage and promoting healthy new cells. When you take Chlorella regularly you may see a big improvement in the tone and texture of your skin, plus it gives you energy and vitality!

The Japanese brand “Sun Chlorella” seems to be one of the best quality for pure Chlorella (in a tablet form), but I also like Dr. Schulze’s Superfood Plus, this is a mixture of other potent algae’s as well as grasses, seaweed and other super ingredients –  this is a powder that you mix into juice and drink, 1 glass a day for optimum benefits.

Come on then, eat your greens!

You can  buy Sun Chlorella in our online Skincare Shop.

O2 Intraceuticals Opulence Hydration Gel

O2 Intraceuticals Opulence Hydration Gel is a silky, Hyaluronic Acid rich gel that is lightweight and non greasy. This is suitable for all skin types to counteract skin dehydration and also to brighten areas of uneven pigmentation, or to just brighten your skin up.

This silky hydration complex promotes natural collagen and elastin production – visibly reducing the appearance of fine dehydration lines and improves skin texture.
A botanical brightening complex helps to balance uneven skin pigmentation, refract and disperse light, leaving skin smoothed, refreshed and radiant.

The brightening complex helps to suppress excessive melanin formation, and with regular use can help  minimize dark patches of pigmentation (sunscreen must also be used at all times for any chance of success).
This concentrated multi-action Hyaluronic acid will attract and bind moisture, and has a cumulative effect on the skin’s surface, also contains essential Antioxidants to fight off free radical damage.

Some of the key ingredients in the Intraceuticals Hydration Gel, are Alpha Arbutin, Yellow Dock (both skin brighteners), Stabilized Vitamin C, High Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid and Non Polymerised Hyaluronic Acid.

This is a great product for any skin type, and visibly counteracts skin dehydration. Also available is O2 Intraceuticals Rejuvenate Hydration Gel – which has all the benefits as above but without the botanical skin brighteners.

Purity Matters!

Did you know that 50% of a tablet is made up of glues, known as binders, to hold the tablet together? For most people this is just an irritating fact, but for people who are hyper-allergenic, this can be a real issue. Would you add magnesium stearate, stearic acid, shellac, talc or colourings to your meal, in the way you’d sprinkle over salt or pepper? Neither would we, by making the capsules, liquids and powders as pure and simple as possible, avoiding all the nasties, Viridian have shown that it is possible to make a range of nutritional supplements acceptable for the majority of people.
