Fruits and berries contain extremely high levels of antioxidants that prevent free-radical damage and slow visible signs of aging. When they are eaten regularly, they can have an amazing effect on your overall energy levels and well-being.
Goji berries are powerful antioxidant known to slow the aging process, packed with protein and iron, and they contain every type of essential amino acids. They are also rich in vitamin A, which boost the immune response and eye health. Goji berries can be purchased dried in either whole or powdered form. You can enjoy eating them raw with chocolate, or add them to a smoothie.
Camu berries are an amazing source of vitamin C, a crucial antioxidant that helps to neutralize free radicals responsible for many chronic diseases and accelerated aging. Our bodies can’t make it on their own, so we have to get vitamin C from the foods we eat. Just one serving of camu powder contains about 1180% of your daily vitamin C value – you’d have to eat more than 10 oranges to get the same amount. Camu berries can also help your body rebuild tissue, boost immunity, and increase energy. They are also great for eye health. Camu berries can be purchased in powdered form and added to smoothies or sprinkled on desserts.
Strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries are all superfoods, but blueberries exceed them all in health benefits. Eating only four ounces of blueberries provides the same amount of age-defying antioxidants as five servings of other fruits and vegetables. All these berries are high in potassium and vitamin C and protect against inflammation.
