Victoria Beckham is celebrated for a lot of things: her personal style, her fashion empire, and her youthful appearance, and now, apparently her detox drink, too.

VB made headlines earlier this year after she took to Instagram to share her thoughts on Jasmine Tocos, a product that is meant to make skin look beautiful, improve muscle tone, and offer a “gentle detox,” Hello! notes. Along with a photo of the product, she wrote, "This actually tastes quite nice! Good for… radiant skin, gentle detox and muscle tone."

We’ve heard of a lot of strange powders that can be mixed to waters or your favorite beverage, and although you can do the same with tocotrienols (tocos for short), we hadn’t really heard much about it before VB. So, what the heck is it? My Body + Soul was able to answer that question, explaining that Tocos is “a fat-soluble relative of vitamin E, commonly found in oils, rice, wheat, barley, rye, and oats."

Most people are aware that Vitamin E is fantastic for the skin and it is often added to creams and moisturizers, but Medical News Today notes that other benefits include minimizing the appearance of scars and fine lines. Vitamin E can also promote faster healing of wounds, and alleviate dryness, which could help with eczema symptoms, as well as psoriasis.

Now, back to Tocos, and the brand VB uses is Sun Potion. Co-founder Scott Linde spoke to Healthyish about Tocos, telling the publication that "it's hydrating to the skin and connective tissue." But she also advises that using these products in very hot beverages could mess with their “delicate chemistries.”

Lastly, with any supplement, individuals should speak to a medical professional about adding it to their diet first, especially if they have pre-existing conditions. It is also not recommended to ingest more than 15 milligrams per day, nutritionist Dr. Christopher Brown told Healthyish.
