In the quest for glowing health, many of us look towards diet, exercise, and topical anti-aging remedies to improve the way we look and feel. Reducing our exposure to toxins is also an equally important factor as they can play a major role in our wellness and appearance.
Our appearance is merely a reflection of internal health, and a heavy toxic burden can accelerate the aging process. Learning how to reduce our toxic load can be an effective anti-aging method that supports our body as a whole.
Imagine the body is like a glass of water and the toxins from the products we use every day fill up the glass. Toxins from conventional cookware, beauty products, processed foods add to our glass with each use. When our glass gets too full, it can result in poor health and accelerated aging. This is called toxic load. It is important to make a conscious effort each day to minimize the number of toxins from the products we use to keep our glass to a relatively low level.
Conventional cookware such as nonstick, ceramic coated pans, stainless steel cookware, and aluminum are often overlooked factors that add to our glass daily. These types of cookware can potentially cause unnecessary toxins to leach into your food and contribute to poor health. It is our chronic exposure to toxins that can speed up the visual and biological aging process. A great way to encourage wellness and support anti-aging is to detox our home from the most frequently used products that add toxins into our daily lives. Since cooking is a regular practice for many of us, the cookware we choose is an important health and anti-aging factor.
Switching to non toxic cookware made from 100% pure ceramic by Xtrema is a great place to start. You can feel safe knowing that your food is prepared in cookware that does not leach health-harming toxins each time you cook your meals. Using non toxic pots, pans, and non toxic bakeware promotes better health and a more youthful, glowing appearance by reducing the burden on our liver.
Our liver helps our body detox but can easily get overworked due to the high amount of toxins many of us are bombarded with daily. Too many toxins can cause oxidation that can damage cells. When it comes to wellness and beauty, a whole-body approach is key. We can't be perfect, but we can protect ourselves with ease and care by making the conscious decision to choose healthier alternatives to products we use the most frequently. There is no need to stress or get overwhelmed because every step in the right direction positively affects our health and appearance as a whole. It is an empowering feeling to take charge of our health by switching to non toxic products.
I have seen amazing results in my health and appearance by minimizing my exposure to toxic chemicals by switching to non toxic cookware by Xtrema, organic food, and clean beauty products. I have been using Xtrema cookware for over 6 years now, and I'm happy that the cookware I prepare my food in is a counterpart to my healthy lifestyle. I used to place such a high importance on purchasing organic foods to reduce my toxic exposure, but after doing vigorous research, I realized I was buying organic food but preparing it in cookware that leeched toxins into my meals. It didn't really make much sense to continue using conventional cookware anymore.
Reducing our toxic exposure and consuming healthy foods can be powerful anti-aging tools. It sets the foundation for healthy skin, hair, and nails. When we prepare our foods, we want them to be the most nutrient-dense as possible to nourish our health and beauty, without all the added toxins. The skin regenerates itself every 28 days meaning anyone can have healthy glowing skin at any age by reducing toxic load and eating for beauty.
Let's take a look at some beauty foods that you can prepare with your 100% pure ceramic cookware that can naturally slow the signs of aging and promote beauty from within.
Here are some amazing beauty food ingredients to use in your favorite recipes while using Xtrema cookware.
Healthy fats act like internal moisturizers. When our skin is moisturized from the inside, we exude a healthy glow, fine lines and wrinkles diminish, and the skin appears more soft and supple. They also help promote healthy hormones, which directly correlate to how we look and feel. Some examples of healthy fats are avocados, nuts, seeds, and fatty fish such as salmon. Some wonderful healthy oils to use while using Xtrema non toxic cookware are olive oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, grass-fed butter, and ghee.
Carbs seem to get such a bad rap. Did you know that carbs are also vegetables and fruits? Consuming a wide variety of vegetables and fruits is an incredibly important factor in increasing health and beauty. Fruits and vegetables are packed with nutrients that promote beauty from within and fiber to help the body detox. Aim to consume all the colors of the rainbow to get the most nutrients. The 11-inch Traditions Wok With Lid is great for creating stir-fries and a wide variety of vegetable dishes.
Protein is one of the building blocks for skin tissue, and it is important to consume optimal amounts daily. The amino acids found in proteins help support the body's collagen production for a healthy appearance. Proteins such as organic or grass-fed beef, organic chicken, pasture-raised eggs, wild-caught seafood, lentils, beans, rice, nuts, and seeds are all wonderful options. The 9-Piece Traditions Cookware Set is a great option because it covers all your cooking needs.
A great way to get a healthy dose of collagen and support gut health is to consume bone broth regularly. Bone broth makes a wonderful base for cooking soups, beans, rice, sauté, and simply drinking. The 10-Quart Versa Dutch Oven is great for making bone broth.
Vitamin C Rich Foods
Foods rich in vitamin C help support collagen production, an important anti-aging component because it helps keep the skin supple. Red peppers are a wonderful choice due to their rich vitamin content. Kiwi, guavas oranges, strawberries, broccoli, Brussel sprouts, and cauliflower are also wonderfully rich in vitamin C. Use the 2.5-Quart Traditions Saucepan for preparing stewed fruit, steamed veggies, and more.
The skin can often look unhealthy due to a lack of proper daily hydration. The human body comprises 65% water, and we need adequate amounts daily to look and feel our best. Adequate amounts of water consumption will also help the body detox. Preparing tea is a great way to consume more water, and the Retro Tea Kettle is a wonderful option for a healthy tea.
Let your natural beauty shine through while encouraging optimum health with non toxic cookware. Because you shouldn't have to choose between health or beauty, you can have both.
