Antioxidants help prevent aging and disease by combating the effects of oxidation in our body tissues. Camu Camu is a small red berry that grows in the Peruvian jungle, and has the highest vitamin C content of any fruit on the entire planet – over 20 times the C found in two pounds of oranges (wow)! You’ll find that these superfoods come in many forms including powders, pills and frozen. All can be added to juices, smoothies, or even added to oats or greek yoghurt. You can also get all three of these superfoods in a powder blend, such as the Berry Bliss powder by Philosophie.
If you’re adding superfoods to your overnight oats or yoghurt, go ahead and sprinkle some blueberries on them! When it comes to fresh fruit, blueberries win the prize for the highest antioxidant content of them all! It also helps boost your immune system which prevents you from getting sick. Blueberries are excellent for the brain, memory, and vision! And they are becoming known for a wealth of anti-aging benefits, too. Who knew the fountain of youth would taste so delicious!
