Blackberry & Acai Smoothie
Rich in skin-rejuvenating anthocyanins
This breakfast smoothie contains blackerries and Acai as they’re rich in the antioxidant compounds: Anthocyanins.
These potent anti-ageing flavonoids are found in dark red / purple foods such as red cabbage, purple sweet potatoes, blackberries, purple plums, blackcurrants and blueberries.
Not only are anthocyanins know to be powerful antioxidants to prevent ‘cellular rusting’ instigated ageing BUT preliminary studies are showing that anthocyanins can increase the levels of Collagen, Elastin and Hyaluronic acid in skin.*
Eat your purple foods for youthful skin – even after menopause.
