FOUR-WEEK GUT HEALING PROGRAMME

If you are serious about healing your gut and your skin we recommend you do the Bestow Love Your Gut Programme for four weeks. Simply repeat the 7-day meal planner four times.  Each week, you will increase the dosage of your Bestow skin nutrition products in your daily Bestow Love Your Gut Smoothie – allowing your digestive system to comfortably adjust to the full daily dose we recommend you continue with as a regular habit.

Bestow Product Quantities to Include in Your Bestow Love Your Gut Smoothie

Week One*:  1tsp Bestow Beauty Plus Oil, 1 tsp Bestow Beauty Powder, 1 tsp Bestow Gut Love + Powder
Week Two:  1 T Bestow Beauty Plus Oil, 1 tsp Bestow Beauty Powder, 1 tsp Bestow Gut Love + Powder
Week Three: 1 T Bestow Beauty Plus Oil, 2 tsp Bestow Beauty Powder, 2 tsp Bestow Gut Love + Powder
Week Four:  1 T Bestow Beauty Plus Oil, 1 T Bestow Beauty Powder,  1 T Bestow Gut Love + Powder

*If you have serious gut issues, we recommend you leave out the Bestow Beauty Powder and Bestow Gut Love + Powder (which both contain seed powders) in order to give your gut a total break from seeds for one week. You can then introduce one teaspoon of each powder in your second week and slowly build up to one tablespoon. Seeds are a highly nutritious food and a healthy part of a good diet, however they can sometimes be hard to digest for people with a very sensitive gut. Go gently and listen to your body.

NOTE: Sheryl loves to make this smoothie for the day and have it over two snack times, half for morning tea and half for afternoon tea. She finds it helps keep her blood sugar levels stable between meal times. Feel free to try this out if you are finding yourself hungry at mid to late morning.

NOTES

The Bestow skin nutrition boosters in this smoothie offer a veritable feast of superfoods for skin health. Bestow Gut Love + powder in particular promotes digestive health and gut healing. It contains liquorice, slippery elm, and L-glutamine to repair the gut wall, fibre-rich superfoods to promote elimination and a world class probiotic to rebalance the gut microbiome.  

This smoothie also features blackstrap molasses which contains a vast amount of minerals such as magnesium, calcium and manganese that all contribute to a healthy digestive tract. When you are not consuming dairy, calcium can be a difficult nutrient to get enough of, and molasses is an easy alternative source.

INGREDIENTS

250 ml of almond milk
1½ tablespoons of cacao powder
1 tablespoon of tahini
1-2 medjool dates (or 1 teaspoons of honey or rice syrup)
½ a banana (frozen on prep day)
1 tablespoon of cacao nibs
1 teaspoon of blackstrap molasses
1 tablespoon of Bestow Beauty Oil or Beauty Plus Oil
1 dessertspoon of Bestow Beauty Powder
1 teaspoon of Bestow Gut Love +
1 teaspoon of chia seeds

Suitable for:
Breakfast | Snack

METHOD

Add all elements to your blender, blend well and enjoy.

Sprinkle with extra cacao nibs and chia seeds if desired.

NOTES

Cacao powder is a great way to get that chocolatey taste and feeling of indulgence with the added benefits of providing your body with nutrients such as magnesium and antioxidants. Tahini, which is made from sesame seeds, contributes to the creamy texture and gives the body a calcium boost. The chia seeds in the smoothie are bound to keep you full providing the body with fibre to help with gut health.

YOUR RDI Hero Snack

Your Bestow Skin Essentials Smoothie gifts your body a significant contribution towards the Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) of many important nutrients. (See list below). For example, you get close to half your daily fibre needs and 60% of your vitamin A from this one smoothie.  It also gives the body a good dose of calcium which is otherwise hard to get. This is done through the molasses and almond milk, both of which have high levels of calcium. Not bad for an afternoon snack!

We have set the Bestow Smoothie Ritual as an afternoon snack to avoid a blood-sugar dip. However you can choose to have it any time of day, depending on when you feel your body most needs the boost. Another option is to include this with your breakfast or another meal of choice during the day if you prefer.

A daily ritual to nourish
your skin from within

Bestow Smoothies are the perfect way to sustain your energy and to get your daily dose of Bestow products, which offer your body a veritable feast of the nutrients required for beautiful skin.

Your 7-Day Meal Plan, includes a daily Bestow Smoothie (see below) as an afternoon snack each day. This smoothie recipe features three essential Bestow skin-nutrition products, Bestow Beauty Plus Oil, Bestow Beauty Powder and Bestow Gut Love +

Together, they offer a daily feast of essential skin nutrition.

Bestow Beauty Plus Oil moisturises your skin from within for a natural luminous glow. It contains a special blend of Essential Fatty Acids which helps each cell in your body cleanse more efficiently.

Bestow Beauty Powder nourishes your skin from within, supplying essential nutrients that are often missing in our modern diets. It helps to flood your liver with the nutrients it requires to cleanse.

Bestow Gut Love + Restores the gut and renews the skin with a world-class probiotic to rebalance the microbiome and fibre-rich superfoods to promote elimination of toxins.

Having these products in your Bestow Smoothie each day is an essential part of your 7-day plan. Collectively, they make a significant contribution towards meeting the Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) of key nutrients needed for wellbeing and skin health.

Modern food production and storage makes it actually very difficult for us to meet our RDIs through food alone, and Bestow skin-nutrition powders are an essential part of addressing this deficit. They provide your body with an abundance of the nutrients your skin needs to thrive.
