The Benefits of Pineapple

Pineapple

Pineapple is the summer gift that keeps on giving.

Pineapple packs goodies for your metabolism that can temper appetite, encourage fat burning and calm down inflammation. Not to mention it can eliminate acne while the skins can strengthen (and thicken) hair and nails – even aid with digestion. Try making tea or juice from the skins to reap these rewards, but for a few more ready-to-use options, see our product picks below.

I was interviewed for Huda Beauty on the benefits of pineapple. You can read the full article here.

New research can help you to understand how to fight aging from the inside out.

Beauty is skin deep but DNA damage is on a cellular level. It’s important to understand how to recognize the top aging offenders and how to develop the discipline to build a healthy daily routine that will keep you young and vibrant.

Listen in to my interview with the Town of North Hempstead Project Independence Radio Show as I dispel the myths and describe what it takes to improve your health once and for all.

How can sugar age your skin?

It has to do with a process called glycation. This is a radical chemical process that attaches glucose (sugar) to either a protein or fat in the body.  When it attaches to protein, what’s formed is called an advanced glycated end product or AGE.  These AGEs wreak havoc in our systems.

Eating too much sugar can supercharge this chemical reaction and cause your skin to age prematurely. You can see signs of wrinkles, sagging or discoloration before your time.  Try to keep sugar to 10% or less of your total calorie needs.  This means you should be aware of how frequently you use sweets.  Reserve them for a special occassion instead of making them part of your daily diet.

Remember that what is showing up on the outside may tell you what is happening on the inside.  Look toward a diet that is low in AGEs.  These include following the American Heart Association Diet, the DASH diet or the plant-emphasized Mediterranean diet. You can enjoy lots of healthy and delicious foods and lower the aging load on your skin and you!
