SPARKLE FROM WITHIN

girl holding a sparklergirl holding a sparklerThis week’s blog is all about maintaining a healthy lifestyle long-term.

Here at HC-HQ, we firmly believe that what you put into your body shows on the outside, hence our term “sparkle from within”.

We just love the idea of everyone walking around sparkling “How?” we hear you ask. Never fear, we’re on hand with our top tips for helping you to maintain your inner and outer loveliness. Health is wealth, right chicks!

ANTIOXIDANTS

You’ve probably heard this word bandied about a lot in any discussions about healthy foods, but you may not know what antioxidants actually are. Well, they’re mainly found in vegetables and fruit – particularly the ones that are brightly coloured – and contain anti-ageing properties that fight ‘free radicals’ (the nasty substances produced by environmental pollutants like car fumes and preservatives that can make you susceptible to cancer, heart disease and premature ageing). The more antioxidants you consume, the slower you’ll age, inside and out. Yikes, pass me the rainbow salad!

Here’s a list of foods that are high in antioxidants to help fight those naughty free radicals and make you sparkle from within (and the good news is that these foods are all pretty yummy so it’s easy to increase your intake of them):

  • Vitamin A – apricots, sweet potatoes, watermelon, chilli pepper, lettuce, carrots, and tomatoes
  • Vitamin C – dark leafy vegetables (kale, broccoli), citrus fruit (fat juicy oranges, lemons and lines), peppers, tomatoes and berries, (think juicy strawberries, blackberries and blueberries)
  • Vitamin E – brown rice, lentils, nuts and seeds
  • Beta Carotene – red and yellow peppers, carrots, mango and broccoli

Selenium – fish, shellfish, red meat, chicken, brazil nuts, onions, brown rice

So stock up chicks, and before long you’ll be sparkling from within. Why not try for 28 days and see how you feel.

Let us know, we love to hear from you.

Love Carol and Tina
