ARBONNE IS HEALTHY
LIVING — INSIDE & OUT
Healthy living is about making the right choices with
dietary habits and nutritional supplements for overall
health inside and out. Your body works as a system where
every function is connected, and diet and nutrition play a
large role in how you feel on the inside and how you look
on the outside.
HERE ARE SOME WAYS THAT NUTRITION CAN HELP
SUPPORT HEALTHY, YOUTHFUL-LOOKING SKIN:
• Boost good bacteria with probiotics: The digestive
system naturally has billions of bacteria, like the skin.
Digestive health can be supported by promoting growth
of beneficial bacteria, along with lowering the number of
harmful bacteria. Probiotics provide strains of beneficial
bacteria to help replenish and support the digestive
tract. These good bacteria help support the immune
system, and other body systems, including the tissues
of the skin – from the inside out.
• Optimise digestion: The body’s overall health is
connected to how foods are digested, and nutrients are
absorbed. This can be optimised by supplementing your
diet with digestive enzymes, to help the body process
foods more effectively and the digestive system function
optimally. Digestive enzyme levels decline with age, so a
supplement can help to support digestive function.
• Get plenty of nutritious fibre: Fibre helps keep things
moving in the digestive tract and promotes healthy
gastrointestinal functioning to eliminate toxins. Over 50%
of Australians only consume about half of the minimum
28 grams of fibre recommended daily.
• Add healthy fats to your diet: Research demonstrates
most people aren’t consuming the needed levels of
essential fatty acids, such as omega-3. The right kinds
of fats are essential to healthy cellular function, including
cells of the skin.
—— Minimise trans fats and saturated fats that could
contribute to an unhealthy vascular system, which
may impact other parts of the body, such as
—— Include plenty of healthy fats such as olive oil;
avocados; nuts and omega-3-rich seeds.
“With our increased understanding of the role of intestinal
health, we are beginning to understand the gut-skin
connection along with the role of probiotics in maintaining
health and great-looking skin.” — Dr. Nora Zorich, MD,
PhD and Chair of the Arbonne Scientific Advisory Board
