Anti-ageing fruits for skin

In recent years, research has disclosed the high nutritional value of black fruits. Not only are they rich in vitamins, iron, calcium and zinc, but some of them may prevent and fight cancer. These black fruits are not only beneficial for your health, but also for your skin. Most of them have also proved to be anti-ageing, which means they help reduce wrinkles and other skin problems.

Grape seeds contain resveratrol, flavonoid and tannins, which are excellent anti-oxidants that are very good at toning and tightening skin. But, it isn’t recommended to eat grape seeds directly, as the tannin in grape seeds makes them bitter. The best way to absorb the nutrients from grape seeds is to drink its juice. The resveratrol then perfectly provides the best skincare and health benefits.

Nutrients in black grapes are largely contained in their seeds, as well as their skin. Instead of eating grape seeds or drinking juice, you may choose to eat grapes with their skin. Nutrients such as calcium, potassium, iron, phosphorus, and vitamins are abundantly found in grapes, which also contain plenty of amino acids, the building blocks of proteins. All the nutrients contained in grapes are beneficial to our skin.

Blackcurrants are rich in vitamin C, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, anthocyanin, phenols, and many other nutrients, while blackcurrant seed oil is proven to possess skin anti-inflammatory and anti-dryness properties. It is also able to stop acne outbreaks and is therefore an excellent ingredient for acne treatment.

Blackcurrants are also good for health, and are often found in healthcare products for anaemia, oedema and oral and throat sicknesses. Different types of amino acids, vitamins, organic acids, and renieratene are contained in a subtropical fruit called mulberries. There is also a higher mineral content in mulberries, as compared to other fruits.

Our skin is usually healthier when we were young as our body metabolic rate is high, but when the metabolic rates slow down as we grow older, skin problems start to appear. With the intake of mulberries, our metabolic rate is accelerated, skin cells are properly regenerated and skin problems therefore cease.

The last black fruit that this article introduces is not very popular. Called the dark plum, it is often sold in the form of dried food. Dark plums contain plenty of different nutrients such as vitamin B2, potassium, magnesium, manganese and phosphorus, in addition to a host of anti-oxidants.

Most importantly, nutrients in black plum are more easily digested and absorbed by human bodies.
Therefore, you may soon experience a very positive change in skin quality if you eat black plums regularly.
