- Rose Hips - Rose hips are the edible part of a rose plant that contain sixty times the vitamin C content of a citrus fruit. Studies have shown that orally ingested rose hips are an effective treatment against hyperpigmentation and skin wrinkles, as well as improve skin moisture and elasticity after four weeks of intake.
- Astragalus - Astragalus has been prescribed for centuries as an immune system supporting herbal remedy. Studies have shown that this immune support can translate into a reduction in atopic dermatitis (eczema). Other than soothing allergic and inflamed skin, Astragalus has been shown to protect the skin against photoaging associated with UV radiation. In this formulation, Astragalus is paired with Angelicae Sinensis in order to increase bioavailability.
- Cordyceps - Found in the highlands of Nepal, Tibet, and China, cordyceps is often called the “caterpillar mushroom.” In this formulation we use cordyceps’ adaptogenic ability to decrease fatigue and increase physical endurance. Studies have also shown that cordyceps protects the skin against ultraviolet radiation damage (the sun!).
- Turmeric - This bright yellow root has been used in both Indian and Chinese traditional medicine for centuries. Curcumin, the active chemical compound in turmeric, has anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce depression and pain. Studies have shown that oral intake of curcumin helps with acne, atopic dermatitis, and facial photoaging (sun damage). In this formulation, turmeric is paired with black pepper in order to increase the bioavailability of curcumin.
