We’re back with Episode 33 of the Real World Paleo Podcast. Christine interviews model and actor Andy Hnilo about his journey to creating his skin care line Alitura Naturals made with organic and natural ingredients. We talk about his lifestyle before and after the serious car accident (he was a pedestrian struck by 2 cars)that broke his jaw and 7 ribs and left him with scars and other physical problems that could have easily ended his career. Instead, he accelerated his recovery by finding and consuming the best Paleo nutrients and creating his signature clay mask with antioxidants and superfoods. He was inspired to create his company Alitura Naturals and other skincare products. He’s now branching into other healthy products.
