  • Blueberry

    The deep blue/purple colour of blueberries is a result of compounds called anthocyanins, powerful antioxidants that shield the skin against harmful free radicals. Free radicals break down skin cells and deplete collagen levels which are vital in helping your skin stay firm and healthy. Blueberries are high in antioxidants, nature’s fountain of youth. Antioxidants are vital in preventing the premature aging and skin damage caused by free radicals. Additionally, the phytonutrients in blueberries (organic plant compounds that are thought to aid in human health) can help curb skin cancer. Blueberries also help strengthen the vessel walls of the capillaries under the skin helping to prevent tiny red veins or “spider vines” from forming.
