Botox is all the rage for taking years off your skin’s age, but you’re still throwing your money away because botox merely treats the symptom and not the cause of wrinkles. By paralyzing your muscles with botox you prevent your skin from “cracking” in the areas that get creased. But it’s not the muscles that cause the creasing — it’s a lack of collagen. Collagen is like a spongey, rubbery grout in the space between your cells. When your body ages, it produces less and less of that collagen “grout,” as well as another material called elastin, and wrinkles begin to appear because your skin is less elastic. Children and teens smile all the time, but their skin is filled with so much healthy collagen it’s effectively self-healing. Again, it’s not the muscles that are the problem.
Although collagen skin creams make you think you’re getting a boost, your body has a lot of trouble absorbing that form of collagen. The only way to guarantee collagen will be 100% absorbed by your body is through food. So what is the #1 most effective food for boosting your skin’s collagen production? The answer might surprise you because it comes from a food source that many of us either throw away or ignore altogether — bone broth.
Bone broth is one of the most powerful and overlooked superfoods out there. Not only is is loaded with collagen, gelatin, and cartilage to give you teenage skin once again, it’s also filled with vital minerals and nutrients such as calcium and magnesium. Magnesium happens to be the mineral we are most deficient in because our industrial food farms have depleted it out of the soil and because we eat so many processed foods. Bone broth is also a miracle worker when it comes to rebuilding your digestive tract. BePure™ founder and world-renowned nutritionist, Ben Warren, explains more in the video at the bottom of this post.

And one other ultimate secret for glowing skin is to eat one serving of organic salmon everyday (not farmed “Wild Atlantic Salmon” which is filled with toxic chemicals — you should only eat a few of those each year).
