Health really is skin deep.
Our skin is a direct reflection of our internal health, which means problem skin can be an indicator of deeper issues below the surface.
This is why healing our internal environment is an important step in achieving beautiful, healthy-looking skin.
There are many nutrients that are beneficial for our skin that we can either find through foods or supplements.
LORNA offers a selection of natural supplements that have been shown to improve overall skin health by providing the building blocks needed for connective tissue regeneration as well as nourishing nutrients for glowing skin.
Collagen is the most abundant protein found in the body and a major component of connective tissue and bones. Our bodies can make its own collagen however, collagen production starts to decline at age 21 and onwards.
As we age, these effects can show up as wrinkles and sagging skin. Collagen supplementation can help support skin health by promoting the renewal and repair of skin cells and fighting the effects of aging, resulting in smoother and fuller looking skin.
Collagen can also help decrease age-related symptoms such as stiffness and joint pain as well as support gut health by rebuilding the gut lining.
Active collagen contains hydrolyzed marine collagen that help prevent wrinkles and promote elasticity by increasing skin moisture and elasticity.
For those who prefer not to consume animal products, Collagen Support is an appropriate alternative. This product provides nutrients that support the production of collagen in the body in the form of silicon and biotin.
Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin, commonly used to address hair, skin, and nail health, especially useful in cases of deficiency to reverse hair loss and promote the growth of nails and healthy-looking skin.
Silicon is a trace element needed for collagen synthesis that has been shown to improve skin strength and elasticity promoting youthful-looking skin.
The use of silicon and biotin can be an effective combination to boost hair, skin, and nail growth as well as the integrity of connective tissue.
Protein is an essential macronutrient needed for optimal health and used by the body to repair, rebuild, and regenerate tissue. However, many populations don't get enough quality protein through their diet.
This protein powder not only supplies hormone-free whey protein that supplies all essential amino acids to help build lean muscle as well as renew outer skin tissue, but it also provides marine collagen to support skin health. Whey protein provides easily assimilable amino acids that also contain beneficial nutrients such as glutathione (a powerful detoxifier), alpha-lactalbumin (an immune booster), and lactoferrin (an antioxidant known for its cancer-fighting and anti-inflammatory properties).
GLA (gamma-linolenic acid) is an essential omega 6 fatty acid, found in evening primrose and borage oil, that has been shown to improve skin barrier function, correct deficiencies in oils of the skin, and maintain moisture in the skin.
GLA can be helpful in the treatment of skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, eczema, and dry skin.
Lorna's GLA comes from borage oil which can help balance hormones by reducing inflammation and improving glucose tolerance, improving symptoms such as PMS (1).
How to take GLA? GLA can be applied externally or taken internally. You can use it in your food or take a spoonful with your meal. If you suffer from skin conditions you can also apply it topically as needed.
Celadrin is an organic compound that has far-reaching benefits from improving arthritis, injuries, and inflammatory disorders to conditions of the skin such as wrinkles, psoriasis, eczema, and rosacea.
Daily application of Celadrin has shown measurable improvements in skin smoothness, hydration, and fine lines.
