Soup For Your Skin

So the saying goes that 'Beauty Is Only Skin Deep', but the importance of our skin is a lot deeper. We often only think of our skin as an outer layer, but the skin is our largest organ and has many important functions. For example, the skin plays a key role in protecting the body against pathogens and excessive water loss, it's other functions are insulation, temperature regulation, sensation, and the production of vitamin D folates. For these reasons it is essential to keep our skin healthy.

So I decided to try and come up with some recipes and ingredients that will help keep our skin healthy. Now that it is a little cooler I thought a soup in the slow cooker would be perfect. If you don't have a slow cooker than just use a large pot on the stove top.

If you can get your veggies from the local farmers market or organic market even better!

Skin Benefits of These Ingredients

 

Tomatoes -Tomatoes are rich in vitamin C, which helps to keep the skin firm and taut by aiding collagen production. They also contain lycopene: the red pigment which not only gives them their bright red colour, but also stimulates skin circulation.
Sweet Potato - Their high levels of Vitamin A and beta-carotene means sweet potatoes are a skin super food. The substances on many pricey skin-care products like retinol and retinoic acid are actually derived from Vitamin A. Plus beta-carotene combats the free radicals which result skin ageing.
Quinoa-high levels of magnesium promote skin elasticity and regenerate skin cells, while vitamin B2 (riboflavin) builds up connective tissues and is integral to cell reparation
Chickpeas-The manganese in chickpeas helps skin cells produce energy and fights wrinkle-causing free-radical damage and they also contain large amounts of folate - a B vitamin that skin cells need in order to repair damage from sun and toxins.
Pumpkin -Pumpkin’s orange colour is from carotenoids, wrinkle-fighting plant pigments that help neutralize free radicals in the skin, keeping them from damaging the cells that fast-forward ageing, it is also filled with vitamins C, E, and A, as well as powerful enzymes that help to cleanse the skin.
Carrot - Carrots are high in beta carotene, an antioxidant that is converted to vitamin A inside the body. It helps repair skin tissue and protects against the sun's harsh rays.
Broccoli -This cruciferous veggie is high in antioxidants, including vitamins C and E. The vitamin C in broccoli aids in collagen production and keeps your skin healthy and supple, while vitamin E protects your skin cell membranes and guards against UV radiation damage.

THE BEAUTY, HEALING AND RESTORATIVE MINERAL

MSM is known to be highly effective in joint health, muscle recovery, sports nutrition, immune support, and healthy ageing. 

What is MSM?

MSM (Methyl Sulphonyl Methane or Dimethyl Sulfone) is an organic sulphur compound found in all living organisms. It is the purest and most bio-available form of sulphur, one of the essential minerals crucial to life and the regeneration of cells. MSM has traditionally been taken as a food supplement to increase joint health for flexibility and mobility, as well as for strong hair and nails, beautiful skin, and other health conditions from leaky gut syndrome to mild arthritis, osteoporosis, and psoriasis. 

Why do we need to supplement with MSM?

Natural MSM is largely destroyed when our food is processed and can be lost entirely when foods and ingredients are stored for a long period of time. MSM bonds with moisture, so any food which undergoes any sort of dehydration will lack its natural MSM.

For these reasons, and because MSM is so critical for almost every athletic function in active bodies, it is important to consistently supplement with a quality MSM nutritional supplement 

How does MSM work at the cellular level?

Collagen is the principal structural protein holding the skin together and is largely responsible for the skin’s mechanical properties.  Sulphur is integral to the production of collagen and elastin, and MSM is a source of organic Sulphur. 

Approximately half of the body's sulphur content is found in the skin, muscles, cartilage and bones.

How can MSM benefit your skin, hair and nails?

  • Protecting collagen against collagen degrading enzymes
  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles by boosting collagen and elastin production
  • Boosting the natural production of Glutathione, one of the body's key anti-oxidants ... as an anti-oxidant, MSM will boost the immune system and reduce pigmentation and cellular damage
  • Acting as an anti-inflammatory agent by reducing the production of cytokines (compounds that cause inflammation)
  • Maintaining skin cell membrane flexibility and permeability, promoting an efficient exchange of nutrients and waste products to help keep skin clear
  • Helping to maintaining the body's pH balance

How can MSM help with joint health and support? 

MSM has powerful anti-inflammatory properties and can be used as a natural alternative to help reduce pain from mild arthritis and osteoarthritis related symptoms.

How does MISMO MSM help with exercise recovery?

Our muscles, skin, bones, organs, and connective tissue all rely on sulphur and without it our bodies can not function properly.  MSM is an important nutritional supplement for anyone living an active lifestyle, as it delivers the sulphur and methyl nutrients which are key to the structure of healthy cells in muscle and connective tissue.

MSM is valued by bodybuilders, strength, and power athletes because it supports healthy and flexible cell structures and can help reduce the inflammation of muscle tissue and can offset muscle soreness and joint pain caused by inflammation.

Where is MSM found and how is it manufactured?

MSM is found in the fluid and tissue of all living organisms. It is present in a variety of foods including raw vegetables, eggs, milk and fish, but is lost through cooking and food processing. One of the richest natural supplies is pine trees and cabbage.

Although MSM is abundant in nature, even the richest natural sources only provide MSM in the level of several parts per million. Commercial extraction of MSM from trees is not possible so a process is undertaken which parallels the natural oxidation that occurs in the marine atmosphere and produces MSM that is chemically identical to that found in nature.

How pure is MISMO MSM?

Every batch of our MSM is rigourously tested by an independent laboratory to ensure the highest quality, minimum 99.99% pure MSM.

    How much MISMO MSM should I be taking?

    An average dose is between 2 to 6 grams daily. Most people take a teaspoon (approx. 4 grams) daily. If more relief is needed, increase the dose slowly. Can be taken in water or juice after breakfast, although there are no rules as to when you should take MSM.

    A word of caution ... some people find if they take MSM late in the day, after 4 or 5pm, they do not sleep as well, as it energises them. This is not a general occurrence but worth mentioning.

    WARNINGS: If taking Warfarin or strong blood thinners, do not take MSM without your doctor's approval. Not to be taken by children without a health professional's advice.  MSM can also interfere with the accuracy of the blood test for liver enzymes by sometimes producing false positive results. It is recommended you cease taking MSM at least 4 days before these blood tests. You can resume after the test.
