All fresh fruits and vegetables contain magical powers when it comes to
shiny hair, clear skin, and strong nails. However, the ones I’ve chosen
below are perhaps not as well known for their powerful beauty benefits.
Try and include these foods into your diet if you want to look your best
without the need for botox or other unnatural remedies.
1. Red Peppers. All red and orange colored foods contain
beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant. Red peppers are particularly
beautifying due to the minerals A, C, and K. Vitamins A and C can
help prevent cell damage that leads to premature ageing, and
they can also reduce inflammation, which can cause a puffy-
looking face. Pepper also has Vitamin K, which is an excellent
property for protecting our cells from damage.
2. Spinach. All leafy greens are actually very powerful
in terms of being a beauty food because of the chlorophyll they
contain. There are also loads of other phytochemicals and fiber in
spinach that help build blood that is super clean and which will show
through in your skin.
3. Turmeric. This yellow-colored, Indian spice has a load of powerful
antioxidant qualities. Turmeric assists in protecting our cells from free
radical damage and also contributes towards cleaning up
metabolic waste in our systems. It is also great as a liver flusher to
get rid of any poisons and chemicals which are stored there.
4. Pumpkin Seeds. Wow, these really are powerful. What
don’t pumpkin seeds have in them?! The humble pumpkin see
d contains high levels of zinc, calcium, potassium, magnesium,
and vitamins B, C, and E. Pumpkin seeds are also a great source of
amino acids and omega-3 fatty acids, all essential for healthy
cell maintenance. Make a handful of pumpkin seeds a regular part of y
our diet, and you will definitely notice a change in your appearance.
5. Parsley. Next time your plate is garnished with parsley, don’t push it
aside. This is a pretty powerful herb when it comes to anti-aging, as
well as purifying and cleansing the body. It contains vitamins A and
C as well as anti-oxidizing flavonoids that protect our cells from free
radical damage. Parsley also helps to purify the blood, kill bacteria,
aid digestion, and cleanse toxins from the liver. The best thing is that
all these foods are easy to incorporate into your diet. Add turmeric to juice
and combine the other foods with some other fixings to make a great,
beautifying salad. Who said that beauty was hard to keep?
