Since I lead a pretty unhealthy lifestyle with a lot of stress, lack of sleep and many skipped (and often not the healthiest) meals, I’m prone to compensating for it with supplements which are easy and quick to take and really do make a difference to how I feel and how I look.
I’ve always been attracted to supplements that also offer visible results and the one that really stands out to me is MSM. MSM (Methylsulfonymethane, if you care) is a natural form of organic sulfur. It’s beneficial for the formation of tissues such as red cells, muscles, skin, nails and hair, while it also helps regulate the hormonal balance and the immune system. Some also call MSM the mineral of beauty.
So yes – skin, hair and nails. As I’ve mentioned in pretty much every post in recent history, all of these have taken the turn for the worse during my pregnancy and it’s time to get them back into shape!
That being said, MSM doesn’t exactly taste great by itself, so I was excited to find out that a smoothie bar in Ljubljana in Bavarski Dvor, Zdrav’ko Dren (click!) partnered up with the online store Malinca.si and now offers a smoothie with Malinca BeautyMix that contains MSM and Camu Camu that is a great source of Vitamin C.
The smoothie is based on rice milk and tastes great since it also contains raspberries, banana and goji berries. At 2,60€ for 0,3l and 3,5€ for 0,5l I find the price to be great for a daily boost of energy, health and beauty (not to mention all the great Instagram photos you’ll get out of it). It’s easy to get excited about getting better skin, hair and nails and at the same time enjoying something that tastes great.
You can also buy almost all of the products from Malinca.si at Zdrav’ko Dren and save up on the postage and waiting for your mailman to ring. If they don’t have the product in stock, they will order it for you – you can check out their Facebook Page hereand send them a message if you’re interested in what they offer.
