Vitamin C

The grapefruit and lemon juice are a great source of vitamin C, which is important for our overall health, helps to fight inflammation , and even produce collagen for healthier hair and strong nails.

Healthy fat

The almond butter is a great source of healthy fats , which promote hormonal balance and brain health, boost metabolism, regulate blood sugar, and help to improve hair, skin and nail quality. Other great options you could include are avocado, coconut meat, or a handful of your favorite nuts or seeds.

Anti Inflammatory
