Cheers To Total Health With Pure + Simple And Revitasize
Are you taking your eyes for granted?
We often overlook our eyes when we think about health and wellness. Sure, we know that we shouldn’t strain our eyes for long periods of time and to get plenty of rest each night, but what can we do to really nourish our peepers and prevent them from damage?
Since May is Vision Health Month and because we believe in tending to all aspects of our health, we thought this would be a great time to share our favourite ingredients for keeping our eyes bright and brilliant! (Plus, keep reading to find out about our special event with Revitasize at our Yorkville Spa!)
Broccoli and BroccoLeaf
Move over, cauliflower! There’s a new superfood in town. Hailed “the new Kale” in Prevention Magazine, BroccoLeaf is a leafy green that is super-charged with nutrients. It has been rising in popularity over the past few years and is one of the star ingredients in Revitasize’s delicious cold-pressed Green Eye juice! Traditionally used as soil nutrients, these broccoli leaves are excellent sources of Vitamin A. We give an A+ to this eye-loving vitamin for its ability to protect our corneas!
Avocado and Avocado Oil
You can’t make guac without avocados! But besides being a heart-healthy snack, avocados are also great sources of lutein, which is a carotenoid that acts as an antioxidant for the eyes. When used on the skin, Avocado Oil is fast-absorbing and super nourishing, making it the perfect ingredient to soften and support the delicate skin around your eyes! Because of this, Avocado Oil is one of the key ingredients in our new Pure + simple Moisturizing Eye Cream.
We still remember our parents telling us to “Eat your carrots!” Eye health and carrots seem to be synonymous, and for a good reason. The beta-carotene found in carrots is a carotenoid that helps maintain vision and is also a powerful antioxidant. One of our favourite ways to increase our carrot intake is to sip on the 100% organic, raw, and unpasteurized Spiked Pine juice from Revitasize!
Join us in celebrating total health!
In honour of Vision Health Month, we’ve teamed up with one of our favourite neighbours in Yorkville: Revitasize! Revitasize is the perfect lunch spot with its 100% organic salads, wraps, acai bowls, and soups, but it also has a wide range of on-the-go options as well as cleansing programs. We are obsessed with their cold-pressed fruit and vegetable juices as they are 100% organic, raw, and unpasteurized. They are even bottled in environmentally friendly glass bottles that are returnable for a $1 credit! It’s truly a brand after our hearts (and our taste buds).
This Thursday May 21, 2015 from 1-2pm, come drink to your health at our new flagship location in the heart of Yorkville! Enjoy samples of Revitasize’s delicious organic, raw, and unpasteurized Green Eye and Spiked Pine juices that were specifically created to promote eye health while experiencing the best all-natural skincare and eye care + chatting with fellow health and beauty community members. This is an event you won’t want to miss!
