The perfect breakfast on the run!

Ingredients

Blueberries
Not only are they seriously tasty, these tiny morsels of antioxidant power pack a bite sized punch, helping to neutralizing free radicals that would otherwise cause damage to skin cells.

Kiwifruit
The brilliant source of vitamin C in the fruit world.  Vitamin C has huge benefits in keeping skin young and vibrant. 

Almond Milk
Containing a number of skin-nourishing compounds that can potentially improve your complexion. The monounsaturated fats can help nourish your skin. In addition, almond milk is rich in vitamin E, which may play a specific role in reducing acne. According to a study published in the May 2006 issue of "Clinical and Experimental Dermatology," low levels of vitamin E may be associated with severe acne.

Greek yoghurt
A mega get-gorgeous food! Greek yogurt is packed with calcium and protein to help maintain teeth (everyone loves a gorgeous grin). Yogurt also contains natural live active cultures that aid in digestion, help boost immunity, and mitigate the effects of lactose intolerance, leading to a flat and "happy" belly!

Coconut water
Skin hydration is very important. Dehydration leaves the skin lifeless. Coconut water hydrates dull and dry skin, bringing smoothness to the face.  Coconut water is full of naturally occurring potassium, a nutrient that many people are deficient in.

Boost it with Zupafood for SKIN
It contains Collactive, a special form of marine collagen and elastin polypeptides from France. The special NZ superfood blend helps enhance the efficacy of the Collactive as does the added Glutathione, extra Grape Skin Extract and Vitamin C.  B vitamins also play their part in maintaining healthy skin, and deficiencies in niacin and B6 in particular can have a big impact on your skin's appearance.

Directions

1.  Wash and prep the ingredients. Use organic if possible.

2.  Add

  • ¾ cup of blueberries
  • 1 kiwifruit
  • 1 banana
  • ½ cup coconut water
  • ½ cup greek yoghurt
  • 1 sachet Zupafood for SKIN

3.   Add all ingredients to blender at once, than blend.  Add more coconut water for a thinner juice.

Blend, serve, enjoy…glow!

  • “Hi Kathy,   Thank you for your enquiry and for your interest in our products. Did you mean Hyaluronic acid instead of hydrolic acid? We do have a few skin care products as well as supplements that you may find helpful.    Our skin care products contain a number of ingredients which may help to gradually increase the amounts of hyaluronic acid normally found in a much younger person, as well as help your skin to stimulate the regrowth of collagen, elastin and new skin cells.   We would also recommend our Zupafood for SKIN, Total Balance Womens Premium and Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil Premium in combination with our skin care range to support your skin health and address anti-aging internally.   Also Kathy, we dont use hormones in our skin care products, as we prefer to address that area more naturally.  However,  we would love to help you make the right product choices if you could let us know a bit more about you and what youre hoping to achieve by using our products.  Please feel free to contact us on our toll-free phone number 1-888 487 9304 or email us at customer.service@xtend-life.com.  Our hours of operation are New Zealand time, Monday to Friday 8:30am to 5:00pm.   We look forward to hearing from you soon. Kind regards  Korina Customer Relations”
