Boosted hero ingredients include:
Dunaliella salina: Grown in pristine marine waters in Western Australia, this Certified Organic micro-algae is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet. Containing a complete spectrum of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids, carbohydrates, electrolytes, vitamins and chlorophyll, it is also full of beta carotene, or also known as pro-vitamin A, one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants, known to both promote skin renewal, protect the skin from free radicals and help prevent premature ageing of the skin. Compared to spirulina, Dunaliella salina contains twice the amount of chlorophyll, has eight times the mineral content and more than 6,000 times the antioxidant content, making it a superior super-food, that’s vegan, hypoallergenic and easy for the body to absorb. What’s more, this nutrient rich red algae is responsible for the pink flamingos pink hues and natural glow. To further super-charge the skin-boosting properties of Dunaliella salina, The Beauty Chef has bio fermented and increased the levels of this super-algae in the GLOW ADVANCED formula so your gut and skin can experience more powerful benefits.
Queen Garnet Plum: With studies showing the Queen Garnet Plum to contain between five and 10 times more anthocyanins than a normal plum and up to six times the antioxidant content of blueberries, this Australian super-food is packed with skin-loving benefits and anti-ageing properties. Anthocyanins are the compounds that give a red or blue color to fruits, berries and vegetables like blackberries, raspberries, eggplants and beetroot and are anti-inflammatory and extremely rich in antioxidants. They are also crucial for increasing intercellular levels of vitamin C to help decrease the signs of skin ageing plus they can increase collagen production to further support the skin. In the new GLOW ADVANCED formula, this wonder fruit has been bio-fermented to super-boost the health benefits for both the gut and the skin and for increased anti-ageing benefits.
Probiotics: Viable, natural probiotics are created via The Beauty Chef ’s exclusive Flora Culture™ bio-fermentation process*, which has been modified and improved for GLOW ADVANCED in order to ensure a minimum of 500 million good bacteria per serve. The Beauty Chef founder Carla Oates has been working with a renowned Australian microbiologist, Dr Mike Bridges, to ensure this new sophisticated fermentation process further super-charges the GLOW ADVANCED formula for increased probiotic benefits plus boosted immune system benefits. “The naturally occurring probiotics in this fermented powder are much more powerful that standard probiotics precisely because of the bio-fermentation process,” says Carla. “Our unique fermentation process, which has more than 25 years of research and development behind it, helps to break down the ingredients, which allows the nutrients to be more available for the body to use. This process also creates a natural prebiotic and broad-spectrum probiotic. It’s what helps to make GLOW ADVANCED such a powerful health and beauty booster. Vitamins + minerals: GLOW ADVANCED has a boosted vitamin and mineral profile, including high levels of vitamin C, which is crucial for collagen synthesis to fight the effects of ageing and skin health, plus increased levels of zinc which contributes to normal skin functions and may help with a variety of skin problems from acne to improved wound healing. Zinc is also great for strengthening hair and nails and can ward off colds and aid the immune system. The formula is also a good source of pro-vitamin A and iodine, both essential for radiant, healthy skin.
