Beauty Blend: It's Amazing Health Benefits

by Farley D May 21, 2019 9 mins read

Radiance Tonic

SuperFeast Beauty Blend is a combination of several of the orients most revered tonic herbs, traditionally used to promote both inner and outer radiance. Enlivening the body’s detoxification pathways, organ systems and meridian channels, this stunning blend allows the vitality of the hair, skin, nails and fascia to strengthen and flourish. Bringing brightness to the eyes, vitality to the Blood, replenishing the Yin Jing Essence and instilling holistic beauty to the entire being, this beautifying formula is a true beauty.


After all true beauty doesn’t come from makeup, rather it is a portrayal of the internal health of the organs. When ones organs are youthful, clean and buoyant, their external representation will personify this.


What is Beauty Blend?

The SuperFeast Beauty Blend was crafted by founder Mason, essentially as an act of defiance! An act of defiance against the external portrayment of beauty through many of our contemporary social media platforms. Essentially this beauty formula allows you, the modern human, to inquire and gain your own unique distinction of what ‘beauty’ is and what it truly means to you. Our unique radiance blend is comprised of:

  • Schizandra / schisandra berry
  • Goji berry
  • Longan berry
  • Oyster pearl.

A Quick Brush Up On Tonic Herbs & Adaptogens

Tonic herbs do not force the body to change, but rather work with it to adapt, allowing a measured, nourishing and normalising effect to unfold within the body and its systems.Traditionally consumed daily to promote longevity and prevent illness, these remedies offer nourishment to the vital organs, strengthen essential functions and improve quality of life, without negative side effects. Tonic herbs are further categorised as Yin, Yang, Qi and Blood tonics.

Many of the tonic herbs also fall into a category of foods called 'adaptogens' as they aid the body to modulate one or many of its functions.

For a herb to be classified as an adaptogen it must embody certain characteristics; Its consumption must not cause harm or place additional stress on the body. It must promote healing within the body via a non-specific action, providing support for all of the body’s vital systems, including the nervous system, endocrine system and immune system. It must be adaptive in nature, assisting the body to overcome any physical, psychological or environmental stressors

The herbs in the SuperFeast Beauty Blend are classified as tonic and embody the characteristics mentioned above, it really is a little beauty. If you'd like to dive deeper into our top herbal picks for inner and outer radiance, you must check out our *free* Beauty Bible here. You'll get the ancient Daoist (Taoist) tips to ageing gracefully and our fave adaptogens for beauty.



Beauty Blend is certainly a sum of its potent parts. The four ingredients (schizandra, goji, longan and pearl) work synergistically to nourish the Liver, cleanse and build the Blood, replenish Yin Essence and promote deep detoxification.


The high antioxidant content of the herbs in this carefully crafted blend act to preserve the protein structures of the skin (collagen and elastin), supplying the potent mineral and phytonutrient nutrition the body requires to rebuild and preserve itself.


A wonderful Shen tonic, the blend encourages you to feel your beauty rather than just project it superficially.

1. Schizandra (wu wei zi)

She is a sexy, little red, wonder berry. Read about the 7 Sexy Benefits of Schiz here. The ancients believed those who use schizandra consistently, remain youthful, both in appearance and physiology; in fact if taken for 100 days consecutively, schizandra is believed to purify the Blood, bring sharpness to the mind, optimise memory, rejuvenate and astringe Kidney Essence, encouraging healthy sexual function in both men and women. Working to illuminate inner radiance and allow the glow of beauty to surface via the skin. Because this sounds really really cool to us, we have our very own #100daysofschiz challenge, be sure to check it out for that inner and outer glow.


Schizandra translates to "five taste fruit", a name that illustrates the herbs capacity to influence the five Yin organs of the body; the Liver, Lungs, Kidneys, Heart and Spleen. Schizandra carries all five tastes, salty, sweet, sour, bitter and pungent, with each taste corresponding to the Essence of an energetic element within the body;  including Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. This bright red berry is adaptogenic, an immune tonic, antioxidant-rich, anti-inflammatory and hepatoprotective (4). We adore Schizandra, which is why we stock this baby as a single herb. You can see more info here.

2. Goji (Lycium chinense)

Goji sure has had its time in the sun as a superfood berry and we love this small but mighty powerhouse as much as the next guy. SuperFeast sources goji Di Dao (Di Tao), where goji loves to live, from the Ningxia Zhongning districts of China.


Goji is used throughout Asia as potent longevity herb and Blood tonic, to assist the cultivation of Yin Jing, bring strength and vigour to the legs, bring brightness to the eyes and improve vision. As a sexual tonic for both men and women this berry wonder potentiates the sexual fluids, enhancing fertility. Traditionally used to fortify the entire system, goji is believed to protect against disease and provide the energy needed to overcome obstacles.


Goji is said to promote a cheerful spirit. For centuries, the ancient Daoists have used goji to replenish their 'vital Essence'; in fact the berry is honoured by local farmers in a two week festival! A cheerful woman statue symbolises the joyful state that the humble goji may bestow upon you.  


    3. Longan (Dimocarpus longan)

    The longan berry (you may also be familiar with its other name 'dragon eyes') is a powerful Qi tonic used to tone the Blood, increase physical stamina, nourish the heart, rebuild energy, plus it adds lustre and radiance to the skin - yes please.


    Longan is celebrated as a potent sexual tonic for both men and women. The herb is believed to promote peripheral circulation to the hands and feet and bring a deep sense of calm to the entire body system. Longan helps to potentiate the action of other Blood building herbs, helping to deepen feelings of tranquility when combined with Shen tonics.


      4. Pearl

      If you're new to tonic herbs, then check out this article on Tonic Herbs, What Are They? Believe it or not, the gorgeous pearl is classified as a herb, and a tonic one, at that. We use micro-ground pearl which super super fine. Pearl is considered a powerful Shen tonic, meaning the herb may help relieve uneasiness in the heart and mind. Shen (spirit) tonics (like pearl and schizandra) encourage the body to release stress and tension on the physical, emotional and spiritual levels, relieving the burden on our nervous systems. When Shen is disturbed we may experience disturbed sleep, nervousness, fatigue and disconnection. (We also love reishi to encourage Shen development and maintenance). Consistent use of pearl is said to help one harness and maintain energy and vitality while remaining in a tranquil state.


      We love pearl for its ability to pacify Heat in the Liver, treat facial acne, reduce heat and redness in the face, stiffness in the neck and shoulders, and to brighten the eyes. It really is a perfect addition to the Beauty Blend. Extremely high in minerals like calcium, magnesium and iron, pearl has traditionally (and still today) been used in China to support the health of the musculoskeletal system and improve the health of the bones and teeth. Pearl is a potent herb in its own right (one day, we may bring it in to the SuperFeast apothecary as a standalone herb); adaptogenic, anticonvulsant, hepatoprotective and antioxidant-rich (3).

      The herbs in the Beauty Blend have been used throughout millennia by some of society's most esteemed individuals, these herbs were reserved for emperors, empresses and concubines, those who had a vested interest in living long, robust and youthful lives.

      Collectively, the ingredients in SuperFeast Beauty Blend assist in the smooth flow of Qi through the Liver and Kidneys, helping to mobilise fluids, build Blood, maintain Essence and clear stagnation. These actions support the Liver’s ability to cleanse the Blood, increasing the body’s capacity to eliminate toxins and cultivate vibrancy and lightness.

      Our Beauty Blend offers deep nourishment to the Yin Jing Essence of the body, supporting the function of the Kidneys, Spleen, Heart and Lungs. This allows the body’s foundational energy stores to accumulate and robust physical health and a glowing appearance to shine through the skin.


      Beauty comes from within, it is not a hypothetical concept,

      but an actual manifestation and expression.


      A Special Note On Methylation

      The body employs a process called methylation to assist with the proper functioning of the various metabolic pathways and enzymatic conversions taking place in our cells and organs at any given moment. Methylation is an essential component in the cultivation of vibrant health (1). Methylation controls many of our vital physiological processes including gene expression, detoxification and neurotransmitter creation; essentially methylation helps the body switch things on and off. An impairment in the body’s ability to methylate efficiently can lead to metabolic disorders, decreased immunity and generally lower levels of health (2).


      We mention all of this, because the herbs in the Beauty Blend encourage the body’s detoxification channels supporting the body in its ability to process and release toxins. These actions support the methylation process and can be attributed to the high antioxidant profiles carried by each of the herbs present in the blend.  For those who are still nerding out with us, for example, goji contains the compound betaine which acts as a primary methyl donor.  As we age our innate ability to methylate declines, increasing the degeneration of our neurological and hepatic capacity, along with our genetic expression and potential. Consuming foods high in betaine and other methyl donors, such as goji, encourages the body’s methylation processes to unfold with fluidity.
