skin from the inside out

Bone broth

Our skincare secret is this: eat skin and bones. Why? Because skin and bones have the nutrients to need to make your own. Collagen production declines rapidly after your late 20s, so you gottam ake sure you get it another way!

Collagen Peptides

Not into bone broth? Get in some collagen peptides and pop them in your favourite hot drinks! 

nutrients

Vitamin D

Stuck indoors with work or kids? Live in a cloudy place? Love sleeves? Everybody needs vitamin D. The best way to make sure you get enough is to take an emulsified form with some co-active vitamin K.

Magnesium

The majority of people are deficient in magnesium, but it’s one of the most important nutrients. One of its main functions is helping cells relax. This formulation is particularly awesome because it contains magnesium threonate – Stefani’s personal favourite – because it’s the only form of magnesium demonstrated in animal studies to cross the blood brain barrier.

Green Tea

Green tea is rich in antioxidants, which perform tons of great functions for your health, including reducing inflammation and enhancing skin quality. One cup a day can go miles.

snacks

Grass-fed Beef Sticks

Busy human? On the go? Want some nourishing snacks from ethically raised animals? You can hardly do better than grass-fed beef sticks.

Seaweed

Seaweed can get you so many nutrients you might otherwise miss! Including the very important nutrients iodine and selenium – crucial for happy thyroid health. There are flashier snack packs, but we like these because they have less packaging and more seaweed – a bonus for you and a bonus for the planet.

Kimchi

Having a healthy gut bacteria population is one of the best things you can do for your mental health, metabolism, gut health, and more. Fermented foods like kimchi are one of the best ways to do it. Make sure to get a brand like this one where it’s guaranteed fermented.
