When it comes to our health and beauty inspirations, it’s safe to say that 40-year old blonde beauty Gwyneth Paltrow is high up there on our lists. The Academy Award-winning actress, blogger and mother recently made it her mission to become an authoritative voice on health and wellness and revolutionised her lifestyle and diet following a serious health scare. Us Grazia ladies have been in awe ever since, secretly addicted to her blog, Goop, and you’ll often find us scouring the pages of Gwynnie’s new cookbook It’s All Good when lunch and dinner inspiration falls short.
Want the Gwyneth glow? We do. However, daily workouts Monday through Friday, a yearly detox (that’s a LOT of kale), keeping the fridge stocked with organic produce (no dairy, gluten, meat, sugar or alcohol) as well as the occasional liquid fast isn’t always the most practical thing for us Grazia ladies, even if the Hollywood actress swears she does actually indulge in the occasional cigarette and glass of red wine. So, we were over the moon to hear the whisperings of Gwynnie’s latest health hero- Altrient C. Want to know more? Read on…
Gwyneth Paltrow and her vitamin-boosting secret (@Altrient)
Altrient C is the first-ever vitamin C gel to be launched in the health and beauty world, and is the result of 50 years of research. We hate to make you feel conned, but did you know that up to 85% of regular Vitamin C supplements are not actually absorbed into the body? Alas, Altrient C, a clever water-soluble, vitamin-loaded gel, guarantees to effectively absorb 98% of vitamin C into the bloodstream. What’s more, adequate levels of vitamin C not only boost immunity (crucial for the winter season), but can also act as an anti-ageing product by keeping collagen levels topped up and can ease the pains of a hangover by cleansing the body of the free-radicals released by alcohol. Sounds good to us!
Plus, health goddess Gwynnie recently revealed that she was a huge fan of these nifty vitamin boosting sachets revealing that she “always take 4 or 5 of these bad boys” whenever she needs an energy or immunity boost. She also said that “Vitamin C in high doses wards of viruses and strengthens immunity.” So that’s it ladies- a Paltrow-esque glow might actually be easier than you think, and, best of all, might not involve a green juice or quinoa for breakfast.
Altrient C, £29.95 for a box of 30 sachets, available from www.abundanceandhealth.co.uk
