These unwelcome radicals are associated with oxidative stress, disease and aging, and antioxidants are literally to the rescue, helping to rid the body of free-radicals and to prevent further damage.
The more, the merrier.

Ah, Miracle Collagen, the building blocks of your gut, skin, hair, nails and overall wellness.
We talk about and it’s benefits at length with our Clinical Dietitian Katherine Hay here, but in short, Miracle Collagen is good for everything.
Collagen contains both essential and non-essential amino acids, which act as the building blocks for your cells, tissues, organs and skin.
Each amino acids plays a very particular role in cellular regeneration, but in glycine in particular is the be all end all for wound healing; think acne, scarring, inflammation, redness, rosacea - all the pesky skin issues that we become self-conscious about.
Collagen also serves as a highly absorbable and bioavailable source of protein; again, think healing, regeneration, nutrition and substance. Protein also helps hormones to move and transfer through the body, and will help keep you full and fueled for your day.

This is also what will help prevent skin that looks dull and aged. Yes please!
Omega-3 fats also helps to reduce inflammation in the body, decrease blood clotting (common cause of heart attack) and increase healthy cholesterol (HDL). What could be more beautiful than a healthy heart?
Bottom line is that Eating for Beauty is delicious, easy and quick.
