Unlike the detox drink, you don’t have to worry about drinking it after a meal so it gives you plenty of flexibility. Drink it whenever you want! The ingredients are very different. This drink starts with filtered water, cold pressed lemon juice, horsetail, red clover, cayenne and hydrolyzed marine collagen peptides.
I know, that was my question too.
Basically, to quote the website, this crazy blend “was carefully selected to improve skin elasticity, hydration, and skin density, increase internal collagen production and offer nutrients for optimal hair health.” Read more about the benefits and the details here.
But what’s with the fish?
“We source our collagen exclusively from fish scales as opposed to bovine (beef) or poultry (chicken) sources due to its excellent bioavailability (amount of the substance that your body actually digests and absorbs, from which it experiences an active effect).
Hydrolyzed fish collagen peptides are collagen amino acid strands that have been broken down into a smaller molecular size for easy absorption. In this state, case studies have shown 95% of the collagen strands are absorbed within the first 12h post-administration. Additionally, since collagen peptides are known to stimulate fibroblast cells (these make up the cell structure of the dermis), the effects of collagen ingestion are long-term in helping to promote collagen production naturally.”
And what are isoflavones?
“Red Clover contains isoflavones used to support healthy lymphatic function, immunity, healthy skin and balanced endocrine activity. Its active ingredients include daidzein, genistein, biochannin-A, and others which help to combat the subtle signs of aging, including decreased collagen production. Case studies have shown a direct link between isoflavone supplementation and increased collagen production, improved skin elasticity/thickening and wrinkle reduction, particularly in aging women.
Ingesting these nutrients–or phytoestrogens more generally–from products such as GMO-soy (where they are commonly found and extremely tampered with) is a different experience entirely for your body. All of our herbs are certified non-GMO.”
Read the nutrition info below and decide for yourself if you think it’s something you want to try. I plan to do it at least once a month. After six days I felt like my skin had gone through a cycle where I had broken out (maybe partly from last week’s detox as well) but was beginning to clear up. My skin looked brighter for real, my pores a bit less noticeable and the texture really smooth. Big changes for me who has never had very good skin!
UPDATE: I am on my second case in a four week period and I am obsessed. Ordering is so easy. YOU JUST TEXT THEM AND SAY SHIP ME A CASE. Genius. I will keep you posted with my progress but I am feeling great and my skin is clearing up nicely!
