SUPERCHARGE YOUR DIET WITH PURPLE FRUITS AND VEGGIES

Posted by Naturopath . on

When it comes to antioxidant goodness, nothing beats dark purple fruits and vegies. These purple nutritional powerhouses are jam-packed with vitamins, minerals and important anti-aging antioxidants. Their lush purple colour indicates the presence of potent antioxidant compounds called anthyocyanins. These antioxidants prevent free radical damage in the body, which helps us look and feel younger, live longer and protects us from chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease. Purple foods are also rich in another anti-aging compound called resveratrol, which is a ‘secret’ ingredient in many anti-aging formulas.

For optimal health add some purple fruits and vegies into your diet today. Some of the best purples include acai berries, beetroot, eggplant, purple cabbage, purple carrots, figs, plums, blueberries and purple potatoes and onions.
