Dr Jockers Comments:
Three critical minerals for healthy skin include silica, zinc, & sulfur. These minerals are found in many plant based foods. Foods rich in antioxidants are very important for the body to balance the oxidative stress is encounters each day and protect the skin cells from free radical damage. Here are 5 foods that will help you build beautifully radiant skin.
Cucumbers and celery are rich in water, vitamin C and silica. Silica is a trace mineral that is critical for strong connective tissue and amazing for skin health. Silica deficiency’s lead to reduced skin elasticity which promotes wrinkles & age spots.
Kale is a great source of sulfur within the glucosinolates like sulfuraphane and methyl cysteine sulfoxides that are active within this plant. These super-nutrients help to activate detoxifying enzymes in the liver that play an important role in neutralizing carcinogenic substances. A healthy strong liver is the foundation for healthy skin!
Lemon is rich in potassium, vitamin C and citrus bioflavonoids that help to detoxify the liver and improve circulation into the deep capillaries including those that nourish the skin.
Ginger is very high in potassium which aids in electrical energy production and detoxification. It is a great source of manganese which protects the lining of the heart blood vessels and urinary tract. Ginger contains silicon and zinc which enhances skin, hair, teeth & nails.
