Dr Oz: Quinoa Recipe for Skin
Dr Jeanine Downie was on Dr Oz to share the ways that Quinoa can benefit your skin. She said that it is rich in amino acids. There are 20 amino acids that we know of, and 10 occur naturally in the body. But that means food is our primary source for the other 10.
Eating Amino Acids strengthens collagen, which brings with it a whole bunch of beauty benefits: “strong nails, stronger hair, more elastic skin.” Dr Downie loves blueberries, and her secret is swapping quinoa in for flour, making it a healthy swap.
