We are so excited to share that Kayo was featured in this month’s Nation A-List Magazine! Here’s the article so you can see it too:
Blue is the new Black. We have created a beautiful blue breakfast bowl to match our top selling Daily Remodeling Serum.
Blue smoothies, bowls, elixers and teas are starting to pop up all over social media, but they aren't new at all. In fact, they are the 1st protein in the world and the most ancient food on our planet. #micdrop
E3Live now sells Blue Majik, a 100% certified organic extract of spirulina. Ounce for ounce it is literally the most nutrient dense food created by nature.
Give that is an algae it is not to tasty alone. It smells like fish and tastes like pond scum. But don't fret, I've created a bunch of recipes that mask the unpalatable flavor.
This recipe can be made as a smoothie or a beautiful blue bowl. It tastes like an ice cream sunday for breakfast and packs the punch of 6 times more antioxidants than blueberries!

2 frozen bananas, sliced
1 scoop almond butter
1 tbs vanilla extract (or 1 vanilla bean) 1 tbs yacon syrup
1 tbs coconut oil
pinch sea salt
Edible Flowers or Gogi Berries
Blend all ingredients together in a high speed blender and serve in a bowl.
In health and happiness,
Magazines, personal trainers, dietitians, and our favorite bloggers are always chiming in with tips for the best workout, diet, and trend to boost our body’s metabolism. But have you thought about giving your skin a high intensity workout as well? Your skin’s metabolic rate works in a similar way to your digestive metabolism. In it’s most basic form, the metabolism of the skin is the rate that cells turn over so that new baby cells can reach the surface, leaving plump, radiant skin cells to shine out and literally put our best face forward. Unfortunately, the cell renewal rate slows down as we age. The slowing is due to less blood circulation and less oxygen delivered to skin cells, which in turn slows cell function.
The skin renewal cycle is influenced by age, lifestyle, overall health condition and exposure to light. Your skin metabolism turns cells over at a rate of 14 days when you are a baby, hence their ever so smooth, soft skin. By your 20’s the turnover rate slows to around 22 days and up to every 50 days later in life. If you discover a buildup of dull skin, wrinkles, loss of elasticity, or uneven skin tone, then it may be time to send your skin to the gym.
The two best ways to improve the health and fitness of your skin are fighting against damaging free radicals and improving your diet. Free radicals are highly reactive atoms or groups of atoms that interact with your cells. The sun and pollution are the top two ways that free radicals get into our bodies. When they do so, free radicals react with DNA cells, which begin to function poorly and can die completely. This is in turn, affects cell function and speeds up the aging process. Antioxidants are the defense system to fight against free radicals and the damage they can cause.
Where can you get antioxidants?
To increase your chances of adding antioxidants to your body you can fill your plate with fresh vegetables in a rainbow of colors and make sure your skincare includes the same pure ingredients from nature. Look for foods high on the ORAC scale. ORAC is short for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacityan, and measures the antioxidant capacity of foods. The higher, the better.
KAYO includes a mixture the most powerful antioxidants in ALL it’s products, acting as an armor against aging. We include CoQ-10,Kayo proprietary Superfruit Blend, Kayo proprietary Antioxidant Blend, along with C + E. Applying antioxidants superficially builds protection against daily aggressors and becomes a method of quick absorption. Trust knowing every Kayo product includes pure and powerful antioxidants to fight free radical damage and leave skin metabolism bursting with a youthful energy.
Want to eat more foods high on the ORAC scale:
Green vegetables (which contain lutein and zeaxanthin, carotenoid antioxidants that can protect aging eyes from developing cataracts and macular degeneration):
Cruciferous vegetables (contain antioxidants and other phytonutrients that reduce cancer risk):
- Brussels sprouts
Orange/yellow fruits and vegetables (rich in carotenoids that protect the immune system):
- sweet potatoes
Red pigmented fruits (contain lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that helps fight heart disease and some types of cancer, particularly prostate cancer):
- pink grapefruit
Blue/purple fruits and vegetables (these hues come from anthocyanins, phytochemicals that protect against carcinogens and may help prevent heart disease):
- purple grapes
- red cabbage
And don't forget about green and white tea, dark chocolate and red wine, all very high in antioxidant activity. Woo hoo!
