Ghost Glow Nana Berry with Kiley Miller Adds More Skin Support

Ghost began as a sports nutrition brand, starting with incredible products like the recently revamped Ghost Legend pre workout. Years later, Ghost pulled in more of the Lifestyle, launching products like Ghost Greens and the incredibly popular Ghost Glow.

Ghost Glow Nana Berry

Ghost Glow Nana Berry is a flavor collaboration with the brand’s warehouse manager, Kiley Miller (@FitByKiki), and it brings an added ingredient, Dermaval, positioning it as the best Glow formula yet!

Glow is a beauty / skin care supplement with an edge of detox to help you feel beautiful from the inside out. It was formulated to enhance complexion, balance hormone levels, protect from free radical damage, decrease stress, and more.

The supplement is great for both men and women, is soy-free yet vegan-friendly, and can be taken any time of the day. It’s one of 2020’s hottest new skin care supplements, if not the hottest.

And now Ghost has made it even better, with an insanely delicious new flavor collaboration and an added ingredient for even more skin support.

Kiley Miller (FitByKiki) Brings us Nana Berry Ghost Glow

Today marked Ghost Glow’s first flavor collab, and it’s with their uber-popular warehouse manager in Nashville, TN – Kiley Miller. Known as FitByKiki on Instagram, Kiley has possibly the best Glow flavor yet – Nana Berry!

We have the details below, including a bit of info on the added ingredient (Dermaval) in this strawberry banana flavor. But first, see our PricePlow-based prices and sign up for Ghost Lifestyle news alerts, since there’s always more on the way:

Ghost Glow Ingredients

Ghost recommends mixing a one-scoop serving of Glow with 6-8 ounces of cold water once daily, any time of the day. Our previous article titled Ghost Glow: Look Good, Feel Good details the science behind the formula, so we’re just going to list them below and then get into Dermaval, the new ingredient in this flavor.

Here’s what one serving (9 grams) of Ghost Glow contains:

You can learn more in our main Ghost Glow article, but let’s get into the newcomer to Kiley’s Nana Berry flavor:

What is Dermaval?!

If you didn’t notice the label above, Dermaval is quite a large proprietary list of fruits and vegetables, made by ingredient supplier FutureCeuticals. It consists of the following:

Dermaval Ingredients

Dermaval has a unique blend of ingredients that provide skin- and collagen-supporting phytonutrients. Image courtesy FutureCeuticals.

  • VitaGranate BioActive Pomegranate fruit extract
  • Asparagus shoot concentrate
  • Okra pod concentrate
  • VitaBerry Tropical (coffee fruit concentrate, acerola cherry fruit juice powder, quercetin, camu camu fruit juice powder, maltodextrin, Acai fruit powder, mangosteen fruit concentrate)

This blend has clinical research demonstrating that it supports collagen levels by delivering nutrients to help contribute to natural collagen production.

The background: HNE Activity and Release

The human body has six elastase genes that play a role in the extracellular matrix, which is a major component of the scaffolding of our tissues. Elastase 2 is also known as human neutrophil elastase, or HNE, and it plays a serious role in degenerative and inflammatory diseases due to it breaking down collagen IV and elastin in our extracellular matrix.[1]

Long story short, too much HNE causes are skin to weaken and contract, especially as we age.[2] We want less HNE – and we want to control what we have.

Sugar consumption induces HNE release

It turns out that high amounts of sugar cause HNE levels (as well as other proinflammatory cytokine levels) to increase.[3,4] Knowing this, a study was designed to see if HNE release could be controlled.

The Dermaval HNE study

In 2013, a team of researchers published a study on 20 healthy subjects (10 males and 10 females) showing that 50mg Dermaval acutely inhibited glucose-induced neutrophil elastase activity in two hours.[5]

The study was conducted over the course of three days:

  • Day 1: Control day – fasted users drink 300mL water and were given placebo. HNE activity was measured 60 and 120 minutes post treatment.
  • Dermaval Effects

    The 50mg dose of Dermaval in Nana Berry prevents glucose-induced HNE release![5]

    Day 2: HNE day – Fasted users were given 75 grams of glucose and HNE activity was measured 60 and 120 minutes post treatment.

  • Day 3: Dermaval Day – Fasted users were given 50 milligrams Dermaval followed by 75 grams of glucose 15 minutes later. HNE activity was measured 60 and 120 minutes post treatment.

On day 1, HNE activity did not change. On day 2, HNE activity increased by 175%. On day 3, Dermaval prevented the glucose-induced HNE release. It’s worth noting that it did not alter or attenuate blood sugar levels.[5]

The researchers did not postulate a mechanism for the success of the study, but concluded that this supplement could be very effective for humans with high sugar diets.

Control damage from sugar and keep skin more elastic

Ultimately, this could prove very beneficial to athletes with high-carbohydrate diets who consume legendary “Physique Destroyers” like those posted to Ghost’s Instagram, or those who are on plant-based diets that are high in sugar.

Available Ghost Glow Flavors

Below is an up-to-date list of all available Ghost Glow flavors:

Ghost Glow Nana Berry

The best Ghost Glow flavor to date? We say yes without even tasting it, thanks to the added ingredient!

    Throughout the years, Ghost is also well-known for their flavor collaborations. They have officially licensed flavors like Chips Ahoy Whey and Swedish Fish, but have also done specialty flavors with their athletes such as Ally Besse’s Ghost Greens Passionfruit collab, where she helped design the label.

    A collab with FitByKiki, however, brings the best of three worlds – an all-star employee, an uber-delicious flavor, and a hot new ingredient!

    Time to Glow Up

    Ghost Glow was an incredibly successful product launch, especially in 2020 when so many brands were holding back. Aside from the unique flavor collaborations, one of our favorite things that Ghost does is to include new and unique ingredients in some of their collaborative launches.

    With Dermaval, we could argue that FitByKiki’s Nana Berry flavor is the best flavor of Ghost Glow – and that’s without even tasting it. But word on the street is that it’s one of their best flavors ever, so the brand’s got you covered there as well. See our review when it posts above to find out!

    Dermaval joins Astrion and Verbasnol

    This flavor has three trademarked ingredients — Dermaval joins Astrion and Verbasnol — the latter two developed by NuLiv Science, one of the most innovative names in the industry.

    Kiley has had Ghost’s back, keeping their warehouses stocked and running smoothly. Now they’ve got her back (and her skin!) with their best Ghost Glow formula to date.
