Red Colored fruit fights wrinkles!
A study done by Ji-Young Bae of Hallym University in south korea has shown a possible wrinkle preventer in red colored fruit. An antioxidant called Ellagic Acid found in these red colored fruits such as strawberries, rasberries, cranberries and pomegranates has been shown to prevent a breakdown in collagen from sundamage. The antioxidant may block an enzyme secreted when skin cells are damaged; that enzyme breaks down collagen in the skin. Scientist exposed mice to UV radiation for eight weeks. To half of the group they applied a daily cream containing ellagic acid. After eight weeks, mice who got the cream developed fewer wrinkles than their unprotected peers. Well you know where i will be in the next few days, that's right at the Farmers Market picking up my red colored fruit and i suggest you do the same. I suggest this not only for the outer affects of these fruit but also for what they do on the inside. Like i have claimed before, beauty starts from the inside and if you feel good on the inside you will shine on the outside. Now lets go get our red colored fruit!
