What are the benefits of Berries?
Berries are amongst the healthiest foods on Earth. Here are some of them.
Benefits of berries for hair
Berries have a lot of beneficial antioxidants and vitamins, such as vitamin C, that may promote hair growth. Antioxidants can help nourish hair follicles and protect against damage from harmful free radicals.
Benefits of berries for skin
Berries may help reduce skin wrinkling, as their antioxidants help control free radicals, which is a leading cause of skin damage.
Various studies suggest that berries may protect skin by blocking the production of enzymes that break down collagen in the skin that has been damaged by excessive sun exposure.
Collagen is a protein that constitutes an essential part of our skin’s structure. Collagen allows our skin to stretch. Our bodies develop wrinkles when collagen is damaged.
Benefits of berries for hearth
Many berries have proven benefits for heart health. These include lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, while reducing oxidative stress.
Berries have a lot of folate (vitamin B) which is known for its benefits that include improved cardiovascular health.
For this smoothie using frozen fruit, I decided to include an extra cup of blueberries as they are a strong Antioxidant Superfoods and to achieve a perfect Purple Smoothie.
Remember that the looks of your food are important as food appearance and presentation are just as essential to the success of your dish as its taste and flavor.
The way the food looks on the plate is what tempts our eyes and makes you want to taste it.
Blueberries are high in phytoflavinoids, potassium, and vitamin C, making them the top choice of doctors and nutritionists. Not only can they lower your risk of heart disease and cancer, but they are also anti-inflammatory.
In conclusion, this very berry smoothie is a great bet to contribute to your well-being to achieve both short and long-term health.
