From sulfur to Momordica: unexpected beauty supplements for youth and weight loss

Multivitamin complexes are a thing of the past! Today everyone is opting for supplements that address specific problems, whether it’s weight loss, rejuvenation, or improving skin quality. In this article we have collected the most interesting and unusual beauty products.

Beauty bloggers and Hollywood stars idolize them, and online stores only have time to restock their warehouses with these wonder pills. We talked to an expert about the benefits of unusual nutritional supplements that have taken over the market-not only because of their exoticism, but also because of their proven wow-effect.

Drinking supplements is always a treat. Agree, it’s one of the easiest ways to feel love and care for your body. And really improve different aspects of health!

Who among us hasn’t at least once or twice taken a course of multivitamins? And haven’t tried to get over the taste of fish oil or flaxseed oil, which are so good for beauty?
Sure, it all really works. But agree, you always want to try something new! Especially when you find yourself in the “beauty supplements” section of some website or when you read an article about the secrets of eternal youth, good health and rapid weight loss.

But there are so many exotic beauty supplements that it’s easy to get lost in them! That is why we present you a list of exotic supplements that are particularly effective and recommended by our expert. But we remind you that before you start taking them actively, be sure to study the contraindications and consult a therapist!

Bitter Melon.

This supplement is also called momordica. Bitter melon is a natural antioxidant and a great hypoglycemic. It’s also:

  • Slows down the processes of glycation (one of the components of the aging process – editor’s note)
  • increases insulin resistance
  • promotes weight loss
  • it helps to prevent metabolic syndrome and reduces visceral fat

Momordica also helps maintain body weight and regulates blood glucose levels. In addition, this supplement slows down the processes of premature aging throughout the body, improves skin quality and reduces the visible signs of age-related changes.


AMD, artichoke, milk thistle, medicinal dandelion are basically all the same thing. Why do we need it? And because artichoke is a natural hepatoprotector with mild choleretic effects. It is…

  • it strengthens intestinal motility.
  • neutralizes the aggressive effects of free radicals.
  • Strengthens cell membranes
  • Restores damaged cells
  • Increases the effect of glutathione, a peptide that slows down aging.

Cosmetologists love and value this supplement because of its high concentration of inulin, quinarin, flavonoids, ascorbic acid, riboflavin and retinol. A real healthy cocktail, isn’t it? AMD products soothe skin, reduce redness, rejuvenate and even heal damaged tissue.

R-lipoic acid

R-lipoic acid is a special form of Bio Enhanced® lipoic acid with improved bioactivity. Overall, this supplement is a versatile and powerful antioxidant. If you want to activate the metabolic processes in your epidermis, be sure to take a look at it. By the way, R-lipoic acid is often used in anti-age cosmetic formulas!

Superubiquinol Coenzyme Q10

And this supplement promotes heart health and cellular energy production, which is why it’s also called the elixir of youth and beauty. Surely you’ve heard its name more than once in advertisements for rejuvenating cosmetics. It really is perfect for fighting wrinkles!

CoQ10 Superubiquinol contains a highly bioavailable form of coenzyme Q10 ubiquinol. And it’s supplemented with the PrimaVie® adaptogen, which further increases absorption of the supplement, promotes cardiovascular health and boosts energy. This antioxidant is one of the most highly effective. That is why it is useful both to dab it on the skin, using cosmetics containing the component, and to drink it internally.


Mega-benfothiamine contains 250 mg of benfothiamine and 10 mg of thiamine (which is actually another name for vitamin B1). This combination is important for supporting healthy blood sugar metabolism. It also helps protect the body, particularly our skin, from oxidative stress and the process of glycation, a biochemical reaction that contributes to the development of early age-related changes.

Sulfur (MSM)

Sulfur, or methylsulfonylmethane (you’ve probably seen the acronym MSM online), is an organic sulfur-containing compound that is very often recommended by cosmetologists and rheumatologists.

What does it do? Sulfur amino acids maintain the integrity of cellular systems by affecting the redox state of cells and their ability to neutralize toxic compounds, free radicals and reactive oxygen species. In addition, they reduce the level of systemic inflammation in the body.

This supplement has a positive effect on the health of the face and body skin, connective tissue and joints. MSM is a useful nutritional and therapeutic component for treating weak and thin nails and dry or dehydrated skin.

But as a remedy for pimples and acne, sulfur does not work, although it is often advised precisely in the fight against acne. At least, sulfur is not very effective if taken as a dietary supplement rather than applied to inflamed areas. So be careful!

Once again we remind you that before taking any vitamins, micronutrients and dietary supplements, you need to take tests and consult your doctor. They should be taken only (this is important!) in the presence of a deficit in the body, and do not forget to monitor the levels every two to four months. Take care and do not harm your body by uncontrolled intake of supplements!
