Research Champions Skin Care Benefits From Berries
The Health Benefits of Berries Translates to Beautiful Skin
"Blueberries possess supercharged antioxidant and anti-inflammatory powers and are packed with phytonutrients called anthocyanins that are responsible for their deep color. Scientific studies have revealed that anthocyanins such as those found in blueberries naturally avert glycation-induced damage by stabilizing the collagen matrix, promoting collagen biosynthesis, and improving microcirculation. More recently, researchers have turned their attention to the skin-rejuvenating power of blueberries. What they have found is that blueberry extracts obtained from the stem, leaf, and fruit all exert a protective effect against protein glycation, AGE formation, and oxidative stress, with the blueberry stems exhibiting the greatest AGE-inhibitory activity" states Gary Goldfaden, MD.
But blueberries aren't the only berry forging a path in skin care. Cranberries do wonders when applied topically to skin to help ward off wrinkles, reduce redness and prevent any signs of skin damage. They are loaded with vitamin c, antioxidants and Omega 3's. Cranberry assists in moisture retention and contributes to lipid barrier protection of the skin. They are also high in vitamin A and phospholipids. The antioxidant ability of the cranberry is thorough. "One cup of whole cranberries has 8,983 total antioxidant capacity. Only blueberries can top that: Wild varieties have 13,427; cultivated blueberries have 9,019. Cranberries are loaded with Vitamin C and in antioxidants, cranberries outrank nearly every fruit and vegetable--including strawberries, spinach, broccoli, red grapes, apples, raspberries, and cherries" says Brunilda Nazario, MD.
Raspberries also have potent antioxidant and antibacterial properties, and work as a natural antibiotic. Raspberry Extract is very soothing and relaxing for inflamed skin; it relieves irritation, and improves tissue firmness. Red raspberries were the subject of a study published in 2000, which showed that they could help prevent rash, eczema, and other skin lesions, and had superior anti-inflammatory properties. They have a wonderful ability to repair skin cell damage.
Some experts feel that a blend of many different antioxidants and extracts might be more effective. There definitely is a "synergistic" effect when many antioxidants are working together. Viva la Vida 's Ultimate Vitamin C Serum combines these three amazing berries to harness the power of nature. Viva la Vida has created a skincare product that restores and rejuvenates damaged skin and greatly improves skin health and complexion.
