I will never cease to try new supplements. I am obsessed with health and beauty, and I will pretty much try anything that will promise to help me in some way. Lucky for you I’ll go through the trial and error, giving you the final scoop. The last one that caught my attention, was Moon Juice Pearl 10:1 Concentrated Extract. I must admit when I read the label on this product and saw that it only had 1 ingredient, I was floored, sold and intrigued. It is rare to find a product that is in its purest form, and not packed with junk and additives.
Believe it or not, the pearls that are found in the sea are not only an amazing accessory, but when they are finely ground, they have amazing medicinal and beauty benefits. I love that this powder can be used both orally and topically.
Pearl extract helps with the formation of new skin, collagen and bone tissue. Collagen diminishes with age, so it is important to take a supplement in order to keep our skin firm, tight, and radiant. This superfood from the sea is also very nutrient dense.
According to conscious eating magazine,
It contains calcium, magnesium, zinc, and iron, along with essential trace minerals such as strontium, copper, selenium, silicon, and titanium. It is also a complete protein, supplying all eight essential amino acids and a handful of more exotic ones including Aspartic Acid, Thronine, Serine, Alanine, Phenylalanine, Arginine, Methionine, Lysine, Glutamic Acid, Glycine, Leucine, Valine, Proline, Tyrosine, Cystine, Histidine, and the calming and relaxing Taurine
Pearl extract can be taken pretty much any way you like. I would add it to my morning smoothie, and it would not change the taste or consistency of my drink. I love how light and tasteless it is.
Pearl extract can also be applied topically. You can either make it into a mask by taking a teaspoon of the powder and adding milk, rose water, or yogurt until you reach your desired consistency. Leave it on for about 10 minutes and rinse off. Another way is just to mix it into your moisturizer at night and applying it. By using this sea wonder topically, you will be able to enjoy other benefits. It can help with acne scars, blemishes, reducing pores, and your skin tone will become more even.
I have really enjoyed this supplement. I have been alternating for 6 weeks now by either taking it orally in my morning smoothie, or mixing it into my moisturizer in the evening. My hair has grown, my nails are incredibly strong, and my skin feels extra soft in the morning after I use it. It is no wonder that pearl extract was used by the Chinese Royal members centuries ago . This supplement is definitely staying in my beauty regime.
