Today we talk with Maura Davies about 9 of the top summer dangers for pets, with Cassie Bjork about environmental toxins, and with Shawn Wells about supplements for better skin.
Maura Davies gives us the top 9 dangers when it comes to the summer heat and your pets. Here they are:
- Dehydration and heat stroke
- Pools and water
- Bee Stings
- Extra Fur
- Barbecues and Family Cookouts
Cassie Bjork talks about environmental toxins and how they are impacting our health. We talk about which fruits and vegetables are more susceptible to have toxins and how to avoid them. Cassie also talks about what these potential toxins are doing inside of your body.
Shawn Wells joins us to talk about how to keep our skin as healthy as we can. This can be done through the foods we eat, the products we put on it, and the supplements we take. Shawn gives us the top supplements that will help your skin look tighter, more supple, clearer, and brighter. Here is his advice:
“Berberine for glycation, CBD and curcumin for inflammation, and Green Tea, Red Wine and Blueberries (EGCG, Reservatrol, Pterostilbene, etc.) for antioxidants can help!
Collagen – 10-40g daily will show benefits on skin being firmer and tighter…some studies as little as 5g. Vitamin C works with collagen and has synergy, so make sure you’re getting enough of this critical antioxidant.
Lastly, an antioxidant found in marigolds and other plants, Lutein and Ze-axanthin (carotenoids) protect your skin and eyes from photodamage (light and sun.)”
