Beauty Captured in a Capsule:

Because VP’s Beauty Boost has a high concentration of Biotin and vitamin C, it aids in increasing collagen production which promotes healthy hair, skin, and nails and a healthier, more radiant appearance. As we age, our body’s natural collagen production slows, which can reduce skin elasticity and increase signs of aging. Beauty Boost offers 500% of the daily value of Biotin and 300% of the daily value of vitamin C, both of which directly and effectively impact collagen production. Not to mention, biotin is important for maintaining a healthy metabolism.

Is Beauty Boost the Same as Collagen?

Beauty Boost helps to fortify collagen production, but does not contain collagen protein. Beauty Boost is an accompaniment to your favorite Vital Proteins collagen supplement.

Benefits of Guava

You might associate oranges as a Vitamin C-packed source, but did you know that guavas actually have four times the amount of Vitamin C? This beautiful and delicious tropical superfruit is loaded with antioxidants that can promote the elimination of free radicals, support heart health, and along with vitamins A and C, can encourage skin health (3). Guava is rich in antioxidants, which can ultimately help to reduce the signs of aging (2).

Benefits of Amla Berry

For healthy hair, look no further than the Amla berry! Amla berries, otherwise known as Indian gooseberries, are an excellent source of vitamins to enrich and support hair growth and strength (4). Studies have shown that Amla berries are rich in carotene and iron, which protect hair against free radicals that could be damaging to hair follicles. Amla is also known to contain powerful antioxidants which help to promote the elimination of free radicals and improve skin hydration and slow the signs of aging (5).

Benefits of Holy Basil

Holy basil, also known as tulsi, is commonly used for skincare and studies have shown that holy basil is an excellent source for fighting bacteria and promoting clear, glowing skin (6). Packed with Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and several essential oils, holy basil also has several antioxidants that help to reduce the signs of aging (7). Be careful though! The culinary basil you might have in your spice cabinet isn’t the same as holy basil; regular basil lacks the vitamins and nutrients found in holy basil.

Benefits of Lemon

Lemons are a great source of vitamin C, offering 51% of the recommended daily intake per lemon, making it a fantastic immune-booster. Research shows that vitamin C rich fruits and veggies can improve overall cardiovascular health (8) and can help promote healthy hair, skin, and nails. Studies have also shown that lemon extracts contain plant compounds that aid in the prevention of weight gain (9).

Benefits of Bamboo

Bamboo is an all-encompassing vegetable that offers immunity-boosting properties as well as digestion support (10). Vitamins found in bamboo, including Vitamin A, Vitamin B6, riboflavin, and folate can help the body strengthen immunity (11). High in fiber, research shows that incorporating bamboo into meals can be great for weight management as well.

Benefits of Mustard Seed

Your favorite condiment may actually have beauty benefits! Mustard seeds are tiny, but they’re mighty. Research has shown that mustard seeds contain properties that help promote hair growth and strength, as it is rich in protein, calcium, vitamin A and E (12). Mustard has been known to condition hair from the inside out, helping to reinforce and strengthen at the root. But the benefits of mustard seed don’t end there! Mustard seed is a great source of Selenium, which acts as an antioxidant and helps to aid in thyroid health.

Benefits of Sesbania Grandiflora

Sesbania grandiflora, more commonly known as vegetable hummingbird or agati, is thought to originate from Southeast Asia, and is also known as hummingbird vegetable or corkwood tree. Sesbania grandiflora leaves are highly beneficial for skin health due to it’s high concentrations of iron, which help the skin retain oxygen (1). A lack of iron can cause the skin to look sallow or develop dark spots.
