Skin – Feed Your Skin with Dr. Barbara Sturm’s Skin Food
Dr. Barbara Sturm’s discovery of hero-ingredient Purslane combined with her goal of creating an effective supplement that promotes anti-aging and skin health inspired her to develop Skin Food.
Packed with anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidative and nutritive properties, the supplement works to hydrate the skin, combat inflammation and protect against the aging process by activating the immortality enzyme telomerase in our cells.
Drink – ZeroWater Filtered Water
With many supermarkets limiting the sale of bottled water, this is the perfect time to adopt a more environmentally-friendly option. Hydration is key and it is easy to become lax with it when we are at home. ZeroWater lives in your fridge, providing you with cool, clean, filtered water whenever you need it.
ZeroWater is truly in a league of its own. The FDA requires the TDS level in PURIFIED bottled water to reach 000-010ppm. ZeroWater is the only filter in its class to achieve this level.
ZeroWater’s first layer of filtration, activated carbon and oxidation reduction alloy removes the chlorine taste you are accustom to with tap water.
