What Is It?

Blueberry along with the acai berry have one of the highest known levels of antioxidants of any food. The ORAC (measurement of the level of antioxidant protection) score of blueberries is an amazing 9,621. Consuming just one cup of blueberries provides these nutrients:

  • Resveratrol
  • Gallic acid
  • Lutein
  • Zeaxanthin
  • Vitamin K (36% Daily Value)
  • Vitamin C (25% Daily Value)
  • Manganese (25% Daily Value)
  • Fiber (17% Daily Value)

 

Blueberries are also rich in phytochemicals that help to neutralize free radicals that damage skin cells. Add proanthocyanidin to the mix, the natural antioxidant that’s proven to fight cancer, help with weight loss and give you glowing young skin, and you get a superfood that we can't get enough of.

Vitamin A, in particular, is used in a variety of acne-related skin treatments. Besides its powerful antioxidant properties, it also leaves skin feeling younger. Look forward to softer and healthier skin!
