I have often thought that one day we will simply stop cooking and just live off little pills that ensure glowing health and longevity. Of course it will be a shame not to sit down and enjoy a romantic dinner, but think of the time you will save on the shopping and washing up, not to mention peeling all those vegetables. One supplement I have just started taking is the Perricone MD Super Greens powder. One single phial contains as many nutrients as four tangerines, two cups of lettuce, four cups of spinach, four bananas and four cups of papaya. Just drinking it makes me feel great and I have much more energy. I also never have to say 'I must eat more greens', which is a massive relief. I have been trying another supplement for 40 days now. It's called Ingenious Beauty Ultimate Collagen+ and contains three powerful ingredients that restore your skin: marine collagen, astaxanthin (which repairs sun damage) and hyaluronic acid. My skin looks great, my hair is glossier and thicker (my husband asked me if I'd had hair extensions the other day) and my nails have stopped breaking. I'm totally addicted. I even look good on a hangover, so it's an essential tool over the festive season. Bring on the parties!
