Phylia de M.’s Acid Test
A great many have already embraced the haircare gospel of Phylia de M.—the all-natural line created by Kazu Namise—which promises, in three easy steps (Clean, Condition, and Connect, a much-lauded leave-in treatment), to grow thicker, shinier, healthier hair. The body-boosting formula owes its magic to a combination of aloe, tannic acid, and—the real hero—fulvic acid, which was created by Namise’s godfather, Japanese oncologist Dick Miyayama. And it’s the latter that is front and center in Phylia de M.’s latest concoction, Fulphyl, an ingestible blend that stimulates cell regeneration and removes free radicals and toxins—and already has its own set of fans: Jessica Stam recently tweeted that she’s relying on it to regrow her hair. But, besides doing a lot of good from the inside out for your hair and beyond, Namise claims Fulphyl is also quite the multitasker, which, considering the hefty price tag ($220; phylia.com), is particularly good news. Here, three more ways to get your Fulphyl fill.
Drink Up: Because Fulphyl effectively mobilizes nutrients and vitamins into your cells, the best way to take it is to mix in 1 to 2 teaspoons with any of your favorite recipes, from pressed juices to smoothies, soups, or salad dressings. Namise’s favorite Fulphyl cocktail is:
8 oz. pH9 water
10 drops liquid chlorophyll
1/2 organic lemon, squeezed
1 tablespoon of Fulphyl
Make Your Garden Grow: Mix 10 milliliters of Fulphyl with a liter of water, and water your herb or plant garden. This allows for a greater humic process in the soil, which will make for more nutrient-rich and heavy-metal-free soil and plants. And that also makes the harvest more delicious!
