Superfoods are foods that contain high levels of nutrients such as antioxidants and vitamins. Why are those nutrients important for you? If nothing else, these components are essential for beauty.
Superfoods and Antioxidants
Antioxidants are a very important base for beauty, since it has as a function to retard and prevent the oxidation of the cells, thus helping reduce the signs of aging. These nutrients can be found naturally in large quantities in superfoods, such as; Cacao, chia, goji.
Superfoods and vitamins
In addition to antioxidants, superfoods are rich in vitamins. Vitamins are very beneficial for skin care, hair and nails; helping achieve a healthy state and a beautiful appearance. The vitamins contained in superfoods differ within superfoods. For example, Spirulina containing vitamins A, B and C while coconut has high level of vitamin C. Olive oil is rich in vitamin E while cocoa with vitamins B3 and B6.
Other superfoods for beauty
Superfoods have become a powerful addition in the production of cosmetics and homemade products, since they have all the benefits for beauty. In addition, they are 100% natural eliminating the need for chemical agents, which can cause unwanted reactions.
Other superfoods that I can’t fail to mention in this article are;
