Pearl Powder (10 g)
Pearl and Traditional Chinese Medicine
Pearl has been used in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) as far back as 320 A.D. The only female empress in Chinese history, Wu Zetian, used pearl for its beauty benefits. In traditional Chinese culture, skin health was revered and pearl was the top natural medicine to achieve a glowing and youthful appearance.
And they didn’t stop there. Chinese medicine also saw the adaptogenic abilities of pearl and used it as a mind (shen) stabilizer to calm mood and disposition. For example, if someone is dealing with stress or anxiety, pearl is the go-to tool in TCM shen tonics.
Pearl and Ayurveda
In traditional Indian medicine, or Ayurveda, pearl powder is also held in high regard for its adaptogenic and anti-aging benefits. Known as Mukta Pishti, pearl powder is used to soothe inflammation, lower heat in the body and cool the digestive system. It is also used in ayurvedic love potions as an aphrodisiac.
Modern Science and Pearl Benefits
There is an increasing amount of modern science to support the validity of the ancient wisdom about pearl. Pearl powder has at least 30 trace minerals, along with calcium, iron, copper, magnesium, silica, and selenium which are needed for healthy hormones, a strong immune system, and youthful skin.
Pearl also contains amino acids, including essential amino acids that your body can’t make on its own and need to get from outside sources, for optimal health. Ever wonder what gives pearls their strikingly beautiful luminescence? You can thank conchiolin for that. This protein is what promotes healthy collagen production which gives your skin that glowing appearance. In fact, it has similar effects to keratin – a protein found in your skin and hair – to improve cell metabolism, increase circulation, and repair damaged cells.
Is pearl powder vegan?
While pearl powder is not technically vegan, many vegans still think it is ok to include pearl powder into their diet.
How do you use pearl powder?
Pearl powder has a very mild flavor – in fact you can’t really taste it at all – and it dissolves easily. This makes it the perfect addition to any of your favorite recipes. I love to add it in my smoothies and teas that I already drink during the day. You can also add it into bone broth or soups to amplify the skin health boosting effects of the collagen present in bone broth. The limit is endless with what you can do with pearl powder!
