Caviar Dreams...

October in Destin—this is the time and place to enjoy just about anything you can think of related to fish and fishing. Of course, you start with the Destin Fishing Rodeo, the ultimate fishing tournament for saltwater anglers of all ages.  Add to that the Destin Seafood Festival and top it all off with the Destin 5k Rodeo Run.  Enjoy a liberal helping of the fresh air and beauty of the Emerald Coast in the fall. Now, did we leave anything out?

Did you say caviar? You’ll find that, too—in the Salamander Spa at The Henderson!  Just call Extension 4482 to book your appointment for a Caviar Facial.  In honor of the Destin Fishing Rodeo, the spa is also offering a complimentary NuFace Wonder Brow Add On treatment for those booking the Caviar Facial!

Caviar has become an important ingredient is the skin-care industry.  Because of its content of vitamins, minerals, and acids, such as Vitamins A and E, Omega-3 and Omega-6, including caviar in skin care products is thought to be a great way to protect the skin from pollutants in the air. It’s also thought to help with the anti-aging process by cleansing the skin without drying it out.

If you’re interested in eating caviar, that’s a good idea, too! Not just because caviar is one of the oldest delicacies (caviar was coveted by royalty even before raw oysters, champagne, or truffles were considered delicacies). Caviar has real health benefits because of its nutritional components!

Caviar can aid cardiovascular health because of its content of Omega-3 acids. These acids can  reduce blood clotting and help protect arteries from hardening, which normally leads to a reduction in the risk of heart attacks, strokes, and blocked blood vessels. They can also help lower blood pressure and triglycerides.

The same Omega-3’s can help people suffering from depression, bipolar disorder, and other mental health problems. Caviar also contains B12, a vitamin that is important in producing red blood cells, and which also helps the body use fatty acids efficiently.

Selenium is yet another mineral contained in caviar. Selenium works in conjunction with Vitamin E as an antioxidant to protect cells from free radicals and other compounds that can lead to heart disease and even cancer.  Selenium can boost the immune system and help support overall cell growth.

Caviar is certainly a luxury ingredient. Some caviar from the eggs of 60 to 100-year-old Iranian beluga sturgeon has sold for $1,000 per ounce.  But, it’s also generally not as expensive as you might think.  Prices have dropped in recent years because of advances in aquaculture that have made farmed sturgeon more available and affordable.  Also, in the early 19th century, lake sturgeon were discovered to be plentiful in the U.S., which also lead to a drop in prices.

So, indulge yourself!  Enjoy the benefits of one of the world’s oldest delicacies as a food and as a facial!  Destin is the place, and October is the time! Call our spa at 855-695-9424 to book a signature caviar facial while you’re visiting!
