SomeO.N.E.'s Talking About Vitamins
We all know that One Natural Experience offers a line of functional beverages to keep you in top performance, but do we really know WHY we need vitamins and antioxidants? Let's take a look!
Antioxidants battle free radicals - the enemies of beauty. Produced by normal metabolism as well as toxins and pollutants, these unstable oxygen molecules attack cells and break them down, leading to signs of aging. Unfortunately, as we age, our bodies lose the ability to absorbe compounds that can act as antioxidants. That's where vitamins come in.
Vitamin A is fundamental to the maintenance of tissues that make up the surface of the skin, says Lisa Drayer, R.D. in The Beauty Diet (McGraw-Hill, 2009). She also says that Vitamin A helps produce and protect the scalp's natural oil.
Vitamin A can be found in O.N.E. Cashew Fruit,
Not only does Vitamin C neutralize free radicals, it is also a nesessary ingredient for the production of collagen, the fibers underneath the skin that keep it firm.
Vitamin C can be found in O.N.E. Cashew Fruit, O.N.E. Coffee Fruit, and O.N.E. Amazon Acai.
