Our beauty drinks contain MACRO-antioxidants®. These are larger and more powerful versions of the antioxidants we get from foods. Exclusive to Beauty & Go, MACRO-antioxidants® are extracted from the skin of fruits. Therefore, they are not part of our usual diet. The most powerful antioxidants are found in the skin of fruits, as this is where they are most needed to protect from environmental damage. In fact, the fruit peel contains 50-70% of the total antioxidant capacity. MACRO-antioxidants® also remain in the body for longer because they are bound to fruit fibre. So the antioxidant status in the body is raised for significantly longer.
The health benefits of MACRO-antioxidants® are backed by 15 years of scientific research carried out by the Spanish National Research Council. They have been proven to be extremely effective at fighting the effects of free radical damage to skin. In addition, Beauty & Go drinks are a rich source of ‘regular’ antioxidants from specially selected antioxidant-rich fruits, fruit extracts, concentrates and botanicals.
Work together with standard antioxidants from fruits and antioxidant vitamins A, C and E to provide more powerful and longer lasting protection
Skin-firming Collagen Peptides
Collagen is the main structural protein of the skin, responsible for its strength, firmness and elasticity. As we age collagen production naturally slows down and this results in the typical signs of ageing such as wrinkles, sagging and loss of elasticity. Beauty & Go contains collagen peptides, to help to compensate for this natural loss of collagen. Collagen peptides work by stimulating the body’s own collagen production as part of a natural feedback system. Scientific studies have found that daily collagen supplementation improves the elasticity and firmness of skin, helping skin look younger.
+ Vitamin C
Works together to support collagen synthesis in the skin
Moisturising Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid is another major component of our skin. Its roles are to support skin’s structure, help maintain elasticity and suppleness of the skin, and to preserve the regeneration and repair of skin. Hyaluronic acid also attracts water, acting as a natural hydrator and has the ability to regulate inflammation. As with collagen, we know that levels decline with age, so replacing these will help to minimise the signs of ageing.
Work together to maintain the structure of the skin
Antioxidant-Rich Superoxide Dismutase
Watermelon extract is a source of the enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD), which supports the body’s internal antioxidant defence systems. This enzyme helps the body to neutralise one of the most common and harmful free radicals in the body, called superoxide radicals. Studies have found that SOD extracted from melon has effective antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects and that supplementation can improve skin radiance and firmness.
Manganese activates the SOD enzyme
Pomegranate concentrate delivers high antioxidant capacity, due to the presence of punicalagins, which have powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory actions. Pomegranates are also an excellent source of vitamin C, needed for healthy collagen production and essential skin vitamins A and E.
+ Other fruit extracts
Antioxidants from different foods work in synergy in the body
Feel Good Manganese
100% of the recommended daily allowance of manganese is included as a key ingredient. This essential mineral acts as a cofactor for the enzymes that produce collagen and for antioxidant enzymes in the body, including SOD.
+ Selenium and zinc
These minerals work together to maintain the body’s antioxidant defence systems
