You might have spotted FUTURELIFE® BEAUTI FOOD™ next to your favourite cosmetic product recently and wondered what benefits this product might hold for you and your beauty. It seems out of place, shakes and bars are not usually found in the cosmetic and beauty section of a pharmacy. But that is exactly where FUTURELIFE® BEAUTI FOOD™ belongs, and here’s why:
FUTURELIFE® BEAUTI FOOD™ CONTAINS A PATENTED BLEND OF BEAUTY SPECIFIC INGREDIENTS
You might be familiar with collagen as an ingredient in face lotions and serums. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body1 and makes up about 70% of the protein in our skin2. But as we age, our body starts producing less and less collagen3, causing our skin to lose its firmness as fine lines and wrinkles start to form.
FUTURELIFE® has introduced a beauty specific collagen product, FUTURELIFE® BEAUTI FOOD™, that contains Bioactive Collagen Peptides (BCP). Basically, this means that the collagen has been broken down, and only the parts that are active in promoting skin health have been isolated. These BCP stimulate the fibroblasts (cells within the skin) to produce more collagen. With an increase in collagen production, skin becomes more hydrated and skin elasticity improves leading to reduced wrinkle volume4&5. FUTURELIFE® BEAUTI FOOD™ contains 5g of collagen peptides which has clinically shown to be effective in improving skin health4&5.
Beauty specific blend of vitamins
FUTURELIFE® BEAUTI FOOD™ Nutritional Shake is high in 18 vitamins and minerals including vitamin C, E, Niacin, Biotin and Riboflavin. This blend of vitamins was specifically chosen for their effectiveness in maintaining the health of the skin. Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation and along with vitamin E, act as antioxidants that protects the body from free radicals (harmful substances) and oxidative stress. Niacin, Biotin and Riboflavin are necessary for normal structure and function of skin and hair.
The FUTURELIFE® BEAUTI FOOD™ Nutritional Shake and FUTURELIFE® BEAUTI FOOD™ Bar are both high in protein. Protein helps build and repair body tissue and contributes to the maintenance of muscle mass.
Sweetened with Xylitol
The FUTURELIFE® BEAUTI FOOD™ range is sweetened with the non-nutritive sweetener Xylitol. Xylitol contributes a delicious taste without adding many kilojoules. This means that the energy provided by FUTURELIFE® BEAUTI FOOD™ is reduced, making it the perfect guilt free snack.
Low Glycaemic Index
With its high protein content and with no added sugar, the FUTURELIFE® BEAUTI FOOD™ range has a low glycaemic index (GI). Therefore, the carbohydrates in FUTURELIFE® BEAUTI FOOD™ are released and absorbed into the blood stream gradually. This assists in controlling blood glucose levels while providing sustained energy for a longer period of time and keeping you fuller for longer.
SO WHY ADD FUTURELIFE® BEAUTI FOOD™ TO YOUR LIST OF SUPPLEMENTS?
FUTURELIFE® BEAUTI FOOD™ is not only a delicious snack, but a combination of protein, vitamins and collagen that provide beauty specific benefits. FUTURELIFE® BEAUTI FOOD™ Nutritional Shake is available in French Vanilla and Caramel Late flavour and FUTURELIFE® BEAUTI FOOD™ Protein Bar is available in French Vanilla and Chocolate Brownie flavour. With its high protein content, low glycaemic index and no added sugar, FUTURELIFE® BEAUTI FOOD™ is perfect for those who want all the beauty benefits that FUTURELIFE® BEAUTI FOOD™ offers in a delicious and calorie-controlled format.
