Cellulite Fighting Foods #13: Blueberries

For those who want to fight toxins, blueberries are one of the best foods on the planet. Their high antioxidant content makes them effective at not just detoxifying your body, but also preventing and treating cellulite. Blueberries are also loaded with antioxidants called anthocyanins, which help your skin to form collagen. Collagen is the protein that keeps your skin fresh and tight, and a lack of collagen in the skin is what leads to cellulite forming. The anthocyanins can also fight the enzymes that lead to the breakdown of collagen, protecting your skin from weakening.   [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Source: ediblelandscapingmadeeasy.com[/caption] Blueberries are also rich in Vitamin C, a vitamin that your body needs to produce collagen. In fact, the anthocyanins in the berries make the Vitamin C MORE effective, ensuring that your skin is protected. Finally, blueberries contain Vitamin E, which acts as a protective barrier to keep your skin healthy and nourished. Bonus benefits: These little berries improve your cardiovascular health, boost brain function, fight aging, regulate your blood sugar, fight cancer, and keep your eyes healthy.
