"Glow is a blend that was created with supporting healthy skin in mind. Many people don’t realise that in order to have great skin, you also need great digestion – the two are very much linked. This would be a common consideration for a medical herbalist and is reflected in the ingredients of this blend. Aloe vera is commonly used on the skin but it is also helpful to the digestion taken internally. Nettle is one of my favourite herbs for supporting the body to detox and this is important so that the skin doesn’t appear dull. Finally, research has shown that green tea contains a high number of polyphenols and it is thought that these micronutrients may help reduce oxidative stress that contributes to signs of aging."
