Move over chia, there’s a new superfood on the scene. Chocolate-covered too!
Coined the ‘holy fruit’, ‘the fountain of youth in a berry’, sea buckthorn really isn’t new. Tibetan people have been enjoying it for hundreds of years. And according to recent research, it may hold the secret to their very long, very healthy (they don’t get sick!) and vibrant lives.
But the real kicker? Sea buckthorn promotes ageless, youthful-looking skin. For real.
Containing 190 bioactive compounds, it provides a superior source Omega 3, 6, 7 and 9, plus a host of antioxidants and vitamins including A, B, C & E. There’s simply no other ‘skin food’ source like it.
Sibu Beauty, the world’s largest purveyor of Himalayan sea buckthorn, recently added dark and milk chocolate truffles containing 250 mg of sea buckthorn oil to its extensive line of skin care formulas and supplements.
For a dark chocloate lover like me, these truffles are decadent tasting, rich and smooth. Delicious! Available in dark mint flavour or milk orange, just 1 satisfies a chocolate-fix -and then some.
Now will these infused chocolates make my skin more beautiful? I’m not too concerned. Mainly because I’m also taking a sea buckthorn supplement and enjoy sea buckthorn tea – daily.
Such is the fountain of youth my friends…I say eat and drink it up.
