Rewinding back time: Anti-ageing
Anti-Ageing is a common topic when it comes to beauty. Walk past a cosmetic aisle and count the amount of anti-ageing products – it’s a billion dollar problem.
Ageing is a natural process. According to traditional chinese medicine (TCM), ageing refers to essentially stem cell degeneration, whereby organs slowly start to lose its ability for youth maintenance.
However, there are ways and ingredients to mitigate the process of ageing. The key organ we’ll be focusing on is the skin.
With the skin, there needs to be nourishment through increased blood circulation. This needs to be done through supplementing the heart, spleen and lungs. Internally, the spleen provides the source of blood and qi (vital energy), and the lung is responsible for disseminating the blood and qi to the skin. These two organs ensure the skin is constantly nourished. Here are some ingredients found in NutriWell that can help:
