Ahhhh…chocolate is so yummy. It’s even yummier when it can help keep you gorgeous.
Beauty Foods, is a drinkable nutritional supplement that picks up on the hot trend of “eating your way to beautiful” from the inside out. “Nightly Beauty,” a hot chocolate drink mix that promotes a good night’s sleep with ingredients like collagen, B vitamins, Vitamin C, valerian root, chamomile, and hops to promote good sleep and keep your skin healthy.
The pros: This stuff is delicious. Such a yummy treat right before bedtime, and the calming ingredients did seem to hasten sleep a bit for me, which is good, because I’m an insomniac.
The cons: At $49.99 for a two-week supply, beauty can come at a steep price. And while the mix only has 5 mg of sugar, the directions say to add the mix to milk, which has 15 grams of sugar, so your drink totals a whopping 20 grams of sugar–and all the sweet stuff can make you not-so-beautiful. Swap unsweetened almond milk for the regular stuff (chocolate or vanilla flavored), and it tastes just as good. As for the price tag, it helps to think of it as a vitamin, and…have you been by the vitamin isle lately? Studies show that the stomach more readily absorbs vitamins via liquid or powder form, which is how the product is delivered.
