Berries: The Blacker the Better
Maybe that's just from a line in a song, but they can all help to keep you looking fresh and young.
Registered dietitian Lauri Boone calls berries, “the ultimate anti-aging superfood."
With soaring levels of antioxidants and phytochemicals, berries keep your brain young, skin a glow, and reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.
Need we say more?
Acai berries are supreme for anti-aging and lowering risk of neurological diseases. Blueberries take the cake on energy boost and building bone strength.
Tangy camu camu berries fight colds and the flu. They also assist in optimal health of eyes, gums, skin, tendons, and ligaments. Hard to find fresh, so look for camu camu berry powder for juices, smoothies, and salad dressings.
Cranberries fight infections, and goji is the berry of absolute vitality. Goldenberries are great for weight management and energy; maqui berries help ulcers and fevers.
Lastly, mulberries keep your blood vessels healthy and your heart happy, while sea buckthorn berries are ‘nature’s multivitamin’ as Boone says.
