Want blemish, wrinkle free, radiant skin? Stronger hair or nails?
Take algae tabs. Here's Why.
We know you want wrinkle free, gorgeous skin. But do you know what makes that possible? Other than the luck of good genes and staying out of the sun and drinking water, the answer is collagen and protein. As you age, free radicals damage your collagen and elastin which takes a toll on your skin. Both collagen and elastin are proteins. Youthful skin has lots of it, aging skin does not. So if you want radiant skin, you need to build and protect your skin’s collagen. But don’t look to expensive collagen face creams to do this. Why not? Because collagen molecules are simply too large to be absorbed into your skin. So what are you to do? Well, like many things in life, we suggest looking inside for the answer. In this case inside your body and your diet. When you do, you’ll find the same answer we did. Protein. It's what repairs all cellular tissue in your body, including your skin’s collagen and elastin. So adding high quality protein like our algae tabs and cutting back on sugar is sure to help you get more radiant looking skin and hair. Mom always said that true beauty comes from within. Now you know its true!

OK, so now you know that protein can help save your collagen, what is the healthiest source you ask? The answer is simple. Algae. Why? Algae has the highest concentration of protein in the world, over 60% protein (did you know that steak was only 22% protein?). Not only that, but since algae is a plant protein, it’s 100% absorbable, 100% alkaline and full of antioxidants and chlorophyll, all which fight free radicals and work together to rebuild your collagen/skin from the inside out. So adding high quality protein like our algae tabs and cutting back on sugar is sure to help you get more radiant looking skin and hair.
For radiant skin, adding algae tabs like ours to your diet is a great start. But unfortunately it’s not enough. Are you sitting down? For truly great skin, you also need to reduce the amount of sugar and refined carbs in your diet. Now, you may have heard from old timers that diet doesn’t affect your skin or health. Well, we’re here to tell you that it does. And we’re not alone on this. Research by well known, doctor's like Dr. Perricone confirm it too. So, other than genes, the sun, stress (which release hormones that cause outbreaks) and dehydration, sugar is a primary cause of skin damage, wrinkles and breakouts.
Here’s a little dramatization to show you how this all works: When you eat lots of refined carbs or sugar, your insulin and blood sugar levels can spike. When this happens, the result is too much sugar in your blood stream. Your cells do their best to absorb all this excess sugar but like a subway car at rush hour, they quickly get full and just can’t take on any more “sugar passengers”. Nevertheless, the sugar has to go somewhere. Right? So like desperate passengers flung from an overturned boat, the sugars grab the most solid and reliable molecule they can find to be their life preserver. Your proteins. Poor proteins, they are such steady foot soldiers, but they don’t stand a chance at defending themselves against these fast moving, high strung, aggressive sugars. Like drowning victims hoping to be saved, sugars attach themselves to your proteins in such haste, that the proteins become damaged in the process. Your proteins are basically ambushed. And it goes downhill from there. Like a pirate taking claim of new found booty, sugars then completely envelope and coat your proteins which renders them useless - sort of like grounding Superman with kryptonite. Deactivated and prevented from performing any of their crucial functions (like repairing your skin, collagen and elastin), your proteins are devastated. And no wonder. They’ve just been fired from their job and stripped of their powers. At this point they are no longer even considered proteins, so they take on a new identity and new name. AGE molecules (Advanced Glycation End Products). AGE’s are not good guys. Quite the contrary, when proteins become AGE’s they switch to the dark side, and wreak havoc on your body and skin by attacking and deactivating your antioxidants. Talk about a personality change! The end result is that your skin ages even more as it becomes more susceptible to damage from the sun, stress or other causes of free radicals. YIKES. Who knew there was such drama going on inside your body and all because of a bit too much sugar? So maybe you want to rethink that glass of orange juice you were going to have for breakfast and take some algae tabs instead? We hope so.
We hope you enjoyed our little melodrama about what might happen when you eat too much sugar and have your insulin spike. It was meant to entertain but also to educate you. The basics to more radiant skin are simple. Eat more protein like our algae tabs, cut back on carbs/sugar and drink more water. Our algae tabs can help you with the first two because they have so much protein which also curbs sugar cravings. When you swallow our tabs with a glass of water – voila – you are on your way to meeting your body’s water needs too. Not only that, but algae is packed with so many antioxidants, so much protein and so much nutrition that The United Nations declared it to be the ‘best food for the future'. Wow. That’s quite an endorsement. We’re blushing. But if you’re still not convinced, consider that algae has 40 minerals and vitamins, 40 times more iron than spinach, and 100 times more beta-carotene then carrots. Even better, our algae tabs require no cooking, no muss, no fuss and are great for vegetarians or vegans. Just pop the lid, swallow or chew a handful of our algae tabs and soon enough you and your skin will be ready for that close up.
Why Algae Helps
Protein contributes to your vibrant health and skin
Did you know that protein makes up 45% of our body? Its not just our muscles and bones that are made from protein, but also hormones, genes, insulin, thyroid and pituitary secretions, enzymes, hemoglobin (blood), antibodies, hair, eyes, skin, heart, kidneys, and even the liver. So when you eat healthy protein like algae, you help your body and your skin repair and rebuild all these cells. This is of vital importance especially if they have become damaged by free radicals, inflammation or other oxidative processes. Youthful, vibrant skin starts from the inside. Taking algae is one of the surest, fastest and easiest ways to help make this happen.
Algae is great for healthy hair too
Did you know that your hair is 88% protein. It’s made from a protein called karatin. In order to have a glossy and healthy mane of hair, you need to feed it protein too. So when you add our algae tabs to your diet and you can help your hair to grow and glow - from the inside.
Algae is high nutrition but low calories
Our algae tabs have virtually no calories. Each tab is loaded with over 40 vitamins and minerals but only ONE calorie per tab so there are no unnecessary calories. No fat. No gluten. No caffeine. No additives. No sugar or fructose either. Absolutely nothing that could damage your skin. Just pure, green protein, loaded with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. A beauty-ful feast. Literally!
Antioxidants are important for youthful looking skin
Aging throughout the body, including skin is caused by many things, including cumulative oxidative damage caused by free radicals. When cell damage hits a tipping point and they can't survive properly anymore, they either die or replicate in a damaged form. To prevent this anywhere, but especially in your skin, you should add more antioxidants like algae to your diet. One of the best antioxidants is beta-carotene, and algae has the highest concentration of it in world. So arm yourself with our algae tabs to give your skin a fighting chance.
Why Drink Water?
And don’t forget to drink lots of water
OK so now you know that algae can help you and your skin look more like a supermodel. But you’re not done yet. You also need water. Lots of it. And no, coffee or sodas don’t count. Nice try though.
Think about this. When you were a kid, you probably had a gold fish. Right? Remember what happened when you didn’t change the water in your fish tank? It got all murky. Your goldfish seemed depressed, stopped swimming or worse – died. Poor thing. But once you cleaned out the tank and replaced it with fresh water, little “Goldie” was back doing laps around the fish tank. Maybe even back flips like a character out of Dr. Seuss’s book “One Fish, Two Fish.” Well, your body’s cells are just like little Goldie. They need a constant supply of fresh water and if they don’t get it, they slowly but surely shut down- like Goldie did. Without a daily supply of fresh water, the water around your cells gets dirty, murky and toxic. Just like the water in your goldfish bowl. Yuck. Who wants dirty goldfish water sloshing around inside them? Not us. Not Goldie. And not you either. So drink up. Drink often. And hopefully drink with our algae tabs.
But seriously, here’s why you need water. Your brain is 75% water. In fact, your muscles are 75% water too. Ever notice how you get thirsty when you lift weights? You do lift weights don’t you? The point is, your body is over 60% water and some parts are even higher - like blood and lungs which are 90% water. You DO know that your body is constantly rebuilding itself? Don’t you? It is. Your bones, your organs, your skin, absolutely everything is in a constant state of re-growth 24/7. And, just like you can’t build a skyscraper without steel, you also can’t build healthy bones, organs or anything else without water. Water is one of your body’s most critical building materials. It’s in everything. Not only that, but water is also what moves stuff around. It’s your team. Not having enough water is like not having enough construction workers at a work site. Donald Trump would not be amused. So, as you see, water does way more than just quench your thirst. It builds and operates your body which is why an occasional glass of water just isn’t enough. You need 8 glasses of pure, unadulterated water every single day. Sounds like a lot. We know .
So, lets do the math. Each day you lose an average of 6 cups of water from urine, four cups from breathing, sweating and bowel movements and 2-3 cups from digestion. That’s twelve cups even before you add in the dehydrating effects of caffeine, stress or exercise. Granted some of your H20 needs could come from your diet but only if it’s rich in fruits and vegetables. And no, French fries do not count. Nice try though. Do you think you are drinking the right amount of water? We bet you’re walking around dehydrated and you just don’t know it. When you are dehydrated, you fatigue easily and nothing works as well as it should. In fact, without sufficient water, your body thinks it's in survival mode. So., just like a squirrel who hides nuts before the winter, your body stores whatever water it can get its hands on –causing swelling in feet, legs, hands, or horror of horrors - weight gain. But once you give your body what it needs, this stored water is usually released. Say hello to new energy and weight loss.
By the way, those eight glasses of water a day are just a starting point. Your body treats water like a bank account. Every time you drink water, it’s like you’re making a deposit into the account. Unlike a real bank account (where you are the only one authorized to make withdrawals) water withdrawals from your body can be made anytime by anyone and even without your authorization or knowledge. Yikes! That’s right. It’s like giving thousands of total strangers your ATM card and PIN number, allowing them to withdraw whatever they want, whenever they want. And they do. The result? You become bankrupt – of water. And who are these unscrupulous strangers making these unauthorized withdrawals? Some are things you can control like your food and drink (For ex. caffeine and sugary foods). Others are things you can’t control like breathing. Remember those twelve cups of water that you lose each day? Those twelve cups just keep “the lights on", in terms of your water needs that is. Without additional water deposits to cover these unauthorized withdrawals caused by caffeine or stress, your body can easily go into “overdraft” and become bankrupt. In other words, dehydrated.
Still not convinced you need water? Then consider what happens when you get dehydrated. Without water, you’d be poisoned by your own waste products. Whoa! That got your attention didn’t it? Sorry for the drama but it’s the truth. During dehydration, the water surrounding your cells is reduced, leaving the small remaining amount to become stagnant and loaded with toxins. As dehydration continues, since your body absolutely has to have water surrounding its cells (to perform all their daily duties), it pulls out water from inside your cells. Yup, like a fugitive on the run, your body literally “steals” water where ever it can find it – from inside your cells, your blood, your organs and even from inside your colon (a big contributor to constipation). This continues until your cells finally lose all or most of their internal water, shrivel up, malfunction or become damaged. You can usually stop these early stages of dehydration just by drinking more water, but most people have no idea they are dehydrated. Too bad because there are so many health conditions that could be eased just by drinking more water. Who knew? Well, now you do. Drinking eight glasses of water a day is not only key to having healthier skin and radiant beauty, it’s your key to great health. And it’s easy to do. So drink up. And drink often.
