Antioxidants and Skin

Antioxidants neutralize free radicals emitted in the atmosphere but also created as byproducts of normal biochemical processes. Physical exercise, when not done consistently, can also cause high levels of free radicals. In access free radicals can damage cells, and thereby your skin and body. Therefore, you want proper daily care with plenty of antioxidants.

Acai on Tree

Acai Superfood for Your Skin

While mangosteens and pomegranates have gained popularity as superfoods high in antioxidants, Acai Berry actually provides the highest levels of antioxidant protection(ORAC) out of all edible fruit.
Acai berry contains Omega 3, Omega 6, and Omega 9, many vitamins such as B1, B2, B3, E, and C, minerals such as Phosphorus, Calcium, and Potassium, and antioxidants such as polyphenols, anthocyanins, and phytosterols.
While your skin may not absorb all these nutrients, it does absorb the exceptionally high levels of antioxidants including Vitamin C to help promote healthy radiant skin.
