Spinach is considered to be one of the world’s healthiest foods, with researchers identifying more than a dozen different types of flavonoid antioxidants alone that are present in spinach, not to mention all of its other vitamins, minerals and essential nutrients. Spinach nutrition has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant abilities, and if you combine that with its very low amount of calories, it is easily one of the most nutrient-rich foods in existence.[5]

Wild Blueberry Power Vaccinium myrtillus

The two most common types are:

  • Highbush blueberries: The most common cultivated variety in the US.
  • Lowbush or “wild” blueberries: Typically smaller and richer in some antioxidants – this is the type we use! 

Everyone knows of blueberries as a true superfood. Blueberries are among the most nutrient-dense berries, containing high levels of fibre, Vitamin C and K & Manganese. 

Beneficial Properties of Blueberries include: 

  • High in Antioxidants – Wild blueberries are especially high in antioxidants, particularly anthocyanins, a class of flavonoids. [7] A study in the British Journal of Nutrition, for example, found that supplementing participants with wild blueberry powder increased serum antioxidant status by 8.5 percent after just one hour. Thanks to the antioxidant properties, blueberries are very supportive of eye health.
  • Reduce DNA Damage, Which May Help Protect Against Aging and Cancer – due to the high antioxidant properties. This is also essential for skin healing. 
  • Boost Brain Health: One of the most impressive health benefits of blueberries is its ability to enhance brain health. There have been many studies suggesting that eating blueberries could improve memory and cognition.
  • Reduce Inflammation: Although inflammation is a normal immune response that helps protect your body from illness and injury, chronic inflammation is at the root of most diseases. Many skin conditions are a result of the body expressing chronic inflammation, controlling this is essential to healing. Thanks to its high antioxidant content, blueberries have been shown to have a significant anti-inflammatory effect in the body. A 2014 test-tube study even found that the polyphenols found in blueberries helped reduce the activity of several markers of inflammation. [7] Similarly, an animal study published in the Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology also found that blueberry extract was effective in reducing swelling in rat paws. [7]
  • Support Digestion: blueberries can help you meet your fiber needs while also promoting regularity and healthy digestion. Excreting waste product, through feces and urine, is essential to stop toxins accumulating, which can lead to skin and ear problems. 
  • Promote Heart Health: There’s no doubt that a healthy heart is a key component of overall health. Your heart is responsible for pumping blood through the body to provide your tissues with the oxygen and nutrients needed to thrive and survive. Good circulation is essential for skin healing. 

Organic Calendula (Calendula officinalis)

Calendula, or Marigold, is known as the healing herb, and rightly so. It has so many beneficial properties, for internal and external use. 

Parts used: Dried and powdered Flowers.

  • Promotes healthy:
    • Skin
    • Liver, Kidneys & lymphatic systems
    • Immune system 

Beneficial Properties of Calendula include: 

  • Powerful antioxidant: Calendula possesses several potent antioxidants, including triterpenes, flavonoids, polyphenols, and carotenoids. This is really important where skin and ear irritation is present, as it helps reduce inflammation fast. The flavonoids present in calendula contribute to its powerful anti-inflammatory properties, by protecting from free radical damage and pro-inflammatory compounds like C-reactive protein and cytokines. [1]. The high linoleic acid concentrations are also anti-inflammatory, yet very gentle, perfect for internally balancing the root cause of skin and ear irritation.  
  • One of the strongest antiviral and anti-microbial herbs: the antibacterial properties of calendula are vital for healing skin and ear issues, as often secondary bacteria infections can take hold quickly due to scratching letting infection in. 
  • Calendula is great at improving skin firmness and hydration. By supporting the lymphatic system it  helps increase blood flow and oxygen to wounds and infected areas, which helps the body grow new tissue and heal more rapidly. 
  • Promotes healing of the digestive tract: this is key to ensuring nutrients from good quality food are absorbed and in helping the body’s healing cycle. 

Summary

HALO supports skin and ear healing via addressing the root cause of the issue, not by suppressing the symptoms. We recommend feeding this supplement for an initial 8 week period, to allow the body to heal. Safe for ongoing use.
