The Beauty Pill: A Sensible Guide

Beauty: Chlorella, Spirulina, Papain

Chlorella: A type of algae that grows in freshwater, chlorella is one of the best ingredients out there for skin and hair improvement. Since our skin is our largest organ, if we’re clean on the inside, the outside will show it. This magical antioxidant improves skin tone, clears your pores, boosts natural collagen production, and helps with clearing your acne. More than that, chlorella has made a name for itself among those looking to clean up their acts – metaphorically and literally, as it is known for helping the body detox from heavy metals.

On another hand, chlorella stimulates the production of keratin in your hair, which means that it promotes hair growth and the regeneration of hair follicles. It is also worth mentioning that it boosts scalp circulation, as well as graying and discoloration, because it is an excellent source of biotin, also known as the holy grail of beauty supplements.

Spirulina: Known as nature’s first ever protein source, blue spirulina is an algae that is considered by scientists to be a complete, whole food, as well as one of the most nutrient dense foods that mother earth has ever offered us. It is a beyond-superfood that nourishes and replenishes every organ in our body and every function of our system.

As a beauty supplement, spirulina contains anti-aging benefits through the plethora of vitamins and antioxidants that it holds which neutralize free radicals and other inflammatory toxins that come from harming ingredients in our diet and environmental aggressors such as pollution, dirt and debris. In addition, with spirulina consisting of 70% protein, fatty acids and iron, it will make whoever takes it reap the benefits of accelerated hair growth.

Papain: It is the main active enzyme in papaya, and the source of all of papaya’s skin benefits. Traditionally, indigenous cultures in Central and South America would wrap the meat they would cook in papaya leaves because of its abundance in that enzyme that breaks down proteins and ultimately tenderizes. In the body as well, papain helps to break down macronutrients and helps with absorption and bloat.

For your skin, it means clearing pigmentation and acne. Papain itself acts as a strong exfoliator that dissolves inactive proteins and dead skin cells. This, in turn powerfully transforms your skin into a softer, more supple version of itself, free of damaged tissue and clogged pores, revealing a brighter, clearer complexion.
