In Scandinavia, blueberry soup is a popular treat that can be served warm as an appetizer or chilled as a dessert. But the benefits of blueberry soup extend far beyond its culinary use. Due to their high concentration of anthocyanins, blueberries can help prevent wrinkles naturally by contributing to the health of the collagen matrix by neutralizing enzymes that destroy connective tissue
and by scavenging free radicals. The anthocyanins also enhance the effects of the vitamin C contained in blueberries. See the Recipe
Dark, unsweetened cocoa powder provides a concentrated source of flavonoids such as catechins and procyanidins
. These flavonoids have shown to exert strong antioxidant effects. However, cocoa flavonoids lose some of the antioxidant power if they are ingested together with dairy. In order to maximize the antioxidant and anti-wrinkle effects of cocoa, this hot chocolate is made with almond milk instead of cow's milk. See the Recipe
The delicious combination of cantaloupe and natural yoghurt packs a powerful punch of skin protecting nutrients including beta-carotene, vitamin C, and zinc. See the Recipe
Green tea catechins appear to be highly effective at preventing wrinkles. The beneficial effects of catechins on the skin are believed to be linked to their extremely strong antioxidant properties naturally. This anti-wrinkle recipe calls for loose tea leaves (instead of bagged tea) and a long brewing time, both of which improve the release of catechins from green tea leaves
. Lemon juice, rich in vitamin C, further improves the availability of catechins. See the Recipe
This recipe pairs green tea with mango to create an antioxidant-rich smoothie to fight wrinkles. See the Recipe
This smoothie is literally bursting with flavor and antioxidants, making it an excellent drink against wrinkles. Wild blueberries have been shown to have the highest antioxidant capacity out of more than 20 fruits and berries. What's more, the ground flaxseed this recipe calls for adds valuable omega-3 fatty acids to this smoothie. See the Recipe
