Bestow Beauty Powder
Beautiful taste…beautiful skin.
Healthy radiance and the prevention of ageing skin are important to all of us so we have designed Bestow Beauty Powder. It has been created to bestow health and radiance to our skin by addressing skin aging caused through deficiencies of key skin nutrients and collagen building blocks.
Your edible cosmetic
With a blend of 8 organic, nutrient-rich plants, Bestow Beauty Powder is an easy way to obtain all your body’s essential skin nutrients.
It also contributes to your daily intake of all the nutritional building blocks your body needs to make collagen – your skin’s natural anti-ageing fibres.
This super-nourishing blend of flaxseed fibre, kelp, spirulina, wheatgrass, alfalfa, coconut, blackcurrant extract and pumpkin flour is highly nutritious, leaving skin feeling smoother, more velvety and more radiant.
Good for your skin. Good for your health
Try blending it with smoothies, juice or yoghurt, or sprinkle lightly on other foods such as cereals, porridge, stir-fries or soups. Also delicious added to baking such as cakes, loaves or savoury muffins.
To celebrate this release for the months of July and August, whenever you purchase your Bestow Beauty Powder we will bestow upon you a fabulous drink shaker. This stylish shaker is made from quality stainless steel and a BPA-free screw top, leak resistant plastic lid. You can use it to mix your powder into juice or to transport your healthy green smoothie. It will keep your drink cool when you are on the go.
The newest addition to our Bestow family is available from your local Bestow stockist from the beginning of July.

When I was a little girl, eating my greens at dinnertime often came down to a battle of wills. My mother, a strong advocate for eating one’s greens, would force me to endure their bitter taste, and I would stubbornly refuse. It has taken me a few years, but I have come to find she was right.
Leafy greens are exceptionally good for our health. Their benefits are still being discovered, and lately they have seen a resurgence in popularity, fortunately for me in the form of a green smoothie.
These smoothies are quick and convenient and also boost the servings of vegetables I have everyday. The best part is the taste of the greens is masked by the fruit component in the smoothies. These smoothies are great, as unlike juices, they are a complete food, full of fibre. The blending process makes the greens easy to digest, making it much easier for our bodies to access the nutrients they contain. They also have alkalising properties that counter the many foods we eat that make our bodies too acidic.
Green smoothies are a rich source of chlorophyll, which, research has shown, may possibly treat and prevent certain types of cancers, such as colon, skin and liver cancer. Another possible health benefit is its ability to aid in the healing of wounds, and fans of chlorophyll also claim that it helps purify the blood and enhances our immune system.
Green smoothies also contain loads of anti-oxidants and phytonutrients to promote good health, which some claim also help with weight loss. Some researchers also believe they aid by decreasing a person’s appetite through the action of a compound called thylakoid. This might also be the reason many fans of these delicious drinks claim they help to reduce sugar and junk food cravings.
So why not include this delicious ritual in your day and do your health and your skin a favour!
