the nutritional facts:
vitamin A: The carrots in this beverage provide ample amounts of vitamin A in the form of beta-carotene. Consider this precursor to vitamin A your passport to youth; it aids in protecting cells, prevents premature aging and gives your skin a rosy glow.
vitamin C: Often associated with immune system and warding off the common cold – but did you know that your skin has its own unique immune system that needs a little TLC every now and then? It’s true. So while vitamin C helps protect the integrity of the skin, it also triggers collagen production. Collagen is responsible for keeping skin looking plump, elastic , wrinkle-free and wards off signs of aging.
vitamin K: This antioxidant does wonders for the skin. With a healthy intake of vitamin K, you can expect a clearer complexion, improved skin elasticity and a super-fast wound healing response.
