Anyone who knows me knows my love for adaptogens. These powerful herb and plant medicines bring balance to any area of the body that is in need of support. I’ve also always been fascinated by the sheer vastness and seemingly never-ending depth of the ocean. And with 95 percent of the ocean left unexplored, we can learn so much from the sea, including the adaptogens that can be found there.
In my functional medicine clinic I often use adaptogens to help restore patient’s health and vitality. So with my goal of wanting to provide my patients with the top of the line functional medicine tools, I took a cue from the synergy of the sea and went ahead and formulated an adaptogenic blend for everyone, not just my patients.
Now you can harness the magic of the sea with holi (y o u t h ) the oceanic trinity of pearl, spirulina, marine collagen, and the tropical adaptogen, holi basil to ensure that you are radiating vibrant health from the inside out.
This oceanic adaptogen comes from both fresh and saltwaters and has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine for its mood-regulating and calming effects. It is rich in calcium, amino acids, magnesium and also contains the compound, conchiolin which gives pearls their rainbow luminescence. This protein promotes healthy collagen production and has similar effects to keratin – one of the proteins found in your skin and hair. It has the ability to increase circulation, repair damaged cells, and improve hydration of skin cells to make pearl the ultimate beauty superfood.
This blue-green algae superfood is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet. Surprisingly, it contains more clean protein than beef including the full range of essential amino acids – the one’s your body must get through food. Its high chlorophyll content gives it intensive detoxing abilities. Spirulina is also one of the only plant sources of long-chain omega fats which are essential for a healthy brain, hormones, immune system, and skin. We harvest our spirulina from the pristine waters of Hawaii.
One of the cleanest and most bioavailable sources of protein, it is a great way to promote healthy joints, skin, and hair by decreasing wrinkles, hydrating, and firming the skin. Rich in glycine, collagen also supports optimal gut and immune health. We source our marine collagen exclusively from fresh, wild-caught, deep-sea fish.
Often referred to as the “Queen of the herbs,” holy basil helps to balance hormones like cortisol, your body’s stress hormone, and reduce inflammation throughout the body. It has the ability to soothe skin problems, reduce stress, and calm anxiety.
Simply stir 1 scoop until dissolved, to hot water, smoothies, tea, or juice to elevate your wellness!
