Why and how???

Eating blueberries not only tastes good, but can make you look good as well because they increase circulation to help your skin glow. Stephanie Clarke and Willow Jarosh – R.D.s and co-owners of C&J Nutrition in Manhattan – understand the beautifying benefits of these little snacks. “That deep blue/purple colour that makes blueberries so gorgeous translates to helping your skin look young too,” says Clarke.  “This colour is a result of compounds called anthocyanins, powerful antioxidants that shield the skin against harmful free radicals that can damage the collagen that keeps your skin firm.” 

“On top of that, blueberries are also packed with vitamin C, another antioxidant crucial for collagen production,” adds Jarosh. Antioxidants are nature’s fountain of youth, and blueberries are simply bursting with ’em. Additionally, the phytonutrients in blueberries (organic plant compounds that are thought to aid in human health) can help curb skin cancer!
