When it comes to boosting your diet with anti-oxidant rich, anti-aging properties, berries cannot be missed out. Here are three berries to keep in mind while you are shopping for a healthy, anti-aging diet:
Blueberries contain a tremendous amount of ant-ioxidants which helps the body, particularly skin, to protect itself from oxidative stress and inflammation caused by free radical damage. Since blueberries are 85% water, they can help skin to stay hydrated from inside out.
Goji Berries are used in traditional Chinese medicine for a variety of health benefits from eyesight to improving the immune system. Goji berries are a good source of vitamin C, protein, and dietary fiber. Vitamin C is an essential vitamin for skin because the body uses it to produce collagen. They also contain the pigment beta-carotene, which gets turned into vitamin A, which is another essential for healthy skin.
Cranberries are especially very important in anti-aging skin care because of their specific combination of anti-oxidants. They contain at least five key categories of phytonutrients: phenolic acids, pro-anthocyanidins, anthocyanins, flavonoids, and triterpenoids) In addition, one cup of fresh cranberries provides 18% of your daily recommended intake of collagen-boosting vitamin C.
