Eat These Purple Foods To Look Younger

May 14, 2013

Did you know that purple foods contain anti-ageing properties that will keep you looking (and feeling!) younger?

Purple fruits and vegetables contain anthocyanins which are phytochemicals that lend food with a purple pigment. Anthocyanins protect against sun disease, cardiovascular disease, improve mental focus and even help prevent cancer.

Eating purple food supplies your body with the antioxidants it needs to fight damaging free radicals, and also calms excess inflammation. Research has proven that almost every disease can be traced back to excess inflammation.

Anthocyanins also stop enzymes from destroying collagen, which we need for healthy, youthful skin – as well as preventing osteoporosis and eye disorders.

So which purple foods should you start eating more of?
