A.Vogel Beauty Essentials
We are constantly exposed to chemicals- thousands more than we were even a few centuries ago- and our bodies don’t always know how to keep up. Our liver and kidneys work hard to keep our systems clean, but we can still have a build-up of substances that accumulate over time. Those substances can cause our skin to become irritated or cause an oil imbalance. They can also effect how our body absorbs important nutrients, which causes changes in the texture and appearance of fingernails and hair. Whatever is happening inside will eventually show on the outside. We can treat the effects, but to really cure the problem, we need to get these toxins out of our system so that our skin can breathe and our body can absorb the elements it needs to keep us feeling and looking healthy.
To get the best results, you need to get to the root of skin, hair and nail care with Beauty Essentials by A.Vogel. It’s a new daily supplement that helps to strengthen hair and nails and to maintain clear, healthy skin. It’s full of nutrients the body needs, which means that it’s safe for anyone to take and that it also contributes to overall good health, while it’s working on making you look better.
A.Vogel Beauty Essential remedies and supplements are made from whole plants rather than vitamins and minerals that have been extracted. The key elements are easier for the body to absorb and use.
There are four key medicinal ingredients in Beauty Essentials- Stinging Nettle, Millet, Zinc and Brewer’s Yeast. Each of them contributes key vitamins, minerals and nutrients our bodies need for hair, skin and nail health.
Stinging Nettle has long been known as a great tonic for the body. It’s loaded with vitamins like A, B-complex, C and E which are necessary for healthy skin and hair. It also contains silica. One of the most important things that Stinging Nettle does, however, is to flush toxins from the body.
Millet is a grain that is rich in the trace mineral silica. Millet is also an excellent source of Vitamin A, which nourishes epithelial cells on the skin and helps promote healing of the skin, either from wounds or from inflammations like eczema, psoriasis and acne. And it contains other nutrients the body needs like Iron, Magnesium and Copper.
Silica is critical to maintain and repair connective tissues like collagen that make up the underlying structure of the skin. As we age, our production of these tissues slows down, which means that we need to make sure we’re giving our body the help it needs to make more. Although there are lots of collagen products on the market, it’s important to remember that collagen molecules are actually too large to penetrate the skin, so what we need to do is encourage the skin to make more, rather than just providing it. That’s what silica does.
Zinc is important for skin health. It is an antioxidant that helps in proper healing and scarring, as well as in the formation of connective tissues like collagen. It is crucial for overall good health to get enough zinc, since a deficiency can cause a lot of problems within the body; for instance, someone who has a zinc deficiency will automatically have a Vitamin A deficiency as well, even if they have adequate amounts of Vitamin A available. One of the problems with zinc supplementation, though, is that it can deplete levels of copper in the body. But that won’t happen with Beauty Essentials, because it also contains base amounts of copper in it. That’s the advantage of having a properly formulated, properly balanced supplement- it gives the body what it needs without overloading it.
Brewer’s Yeast is a rich source of proteins and B-vitamins including Biotin, which helps stimulate the growth of healthy, supple hair. It can even help re-grow hair that’s been lost due to dietary deficiencies, stress, or thyroid problems. If the hair follicles are still healthy, it is still possible to have hair grow from them again!
Some people may be concerned about yeast, but it’s important to remember that not all yeast is the same. Brewer’s yeast is not the same as candida albicans, which can cause problems and it won’t cause a candida overgrowth, or worsen any other candida-related conditions, unless a serious problem already exists. In those cases, you’ll want to get that dealt with right away, before starting Beauty Essentials.
Virtually anyone can benefit from taking Beauty Essentials, since it contains so many ingredients our bodies need. It’s a great option for those looking to preserve or revive a youthful glow and it’s also highly beneficial for people with skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema and acne. Consult a healthcare practitioner prior to use if you have thyroid disease.

- Whole-body detoxification*
- Digestion and Elimination*
- Immune function*
In today’s world, high levels of pollutants like heavy metals, hormones and synthetic chemicals are increasingly present in our water, air and food sources. The human body’s elimination system simply cannot keep up. Over time, these built up toxins can transform healthy cells into abnormal cells that may lead to a number of health concerns. Fortunately, there is now a gentle and easy way to support the body’s digestive and elimination processes for removing accumulated waste and toxins.*
The Flor•Essence® 7-Day Purification Program provides you with the means to accelerate your body’s natural cleansing process.* This easy-to-use program features Flor•Essence® Herbal Tea Blend with Pro•Essence® urinary tract formula and FloraLax™, a bulk-forming laxative that puts all-important fiber to work in your digestive system.*
High in antioxidants, minerals and phytonutrients, this program enables our bodies to absorb more nutrients from the foods we eat while accelerating the removal of toxins in our digestive, elimination and circulatory systems.*
Flor•Essence® is a detoxifying 8-herb tea, based on the Ojibwa herbal tradition.* This formula contains certified organic Burdock Root, Sheep’s Sorrel, Blessed Thistle, Red Clover, Turkish Rhubarb Root, and Kelp. It also contains Slippery Elm Bark and Watercress.
Pro•Essence® acts as a diuretic for the entire urinary system in both women and men.* This 5-herb formula is made with Prickly Ash Bark, Juniper Berry, Burdock Root, Bearberry and Slippery Elm Bark. This innovative preparation helps ensure proper elimination of water-soluble toxins, and has been used to effectively expel the sometimes very large amounts of toxins that can be released from tissues when taking Flor•Essence®.*
FloraLax™ provides the fiber to help absorb intestinal toxins and help maintain good blood cholesterol levels.* It is an excellent source of oat bran, flax seeds and psyllium husks. As fiber moves along the digestive tract, it scrubs and loosens trapped toxic waste and shortens transit time, reducing possible irritations that may lead to gastrointestinal difficulties and other health concerns.
This safe and effective program maximizes the body’s natural healing process of daily detoxification without the undesirable (and often unhealthy) effects of harsh laxatives.*
Weight Loss Tip - A high-fiber diet will help maintain a healthy gastrointestinal tract and improve nutrient absorption for greater energy and vitality. In addition, fiber’s bulking action has a satiating affect that helps manage hunger and weight gain by curtailing appetite and reducing total caloric intake.
- Supporting a brighter complexion*
- Promoting greater energy*
- Encouraging deeper sleep*
- Helping to improve digestion & elimination*
- Mitigating gas & bloating*
Whole-body purification on a regular basis is also helpful for anyone dealing with minor gastrointestinal problems, general fatigue and malaise, skin blemishes and a number of other health concerns.*
