If you are not a big fruit lover and you do not yet have a daily diet that includes fruit, maybe you will change your mind if you knew, for example, that pears can have a sensational anti-aging effect on the skin!
"For a healthy life, eat fruits and vegetables every day!" This is one of the messages that runs daily on TV, along with the one that urges us to drink water and exercize. Let’s take a look at some of the most beloved fruits and their health and beauty benefits!
Pears, anti-aging effect
As I said above, golden pears are real gold when it comes to skin beauty! Constant consumption of pears prevents the appearance of wrinkles and blemishes caused by the aging process, due to the high content of vitamin A. At the same time, the pear extract can stop hair loss and help eliminate skin imperfections.
Pears are also a rich natural source of minerals such as copper and potassium. Copper plays an important role in immunity, cholesterol metabolism and the nervous system, while potassium helps muscle contractions and normal heart function.
Moreover, these fruits are an excellent source of polyphenol antioxidants, which protect against oxidative damage.
„An apple a day...“
... keeps the doctor away! Apples contain over 80% water, organic acids, pectic substances, vitamins A, C, B1, B2, B3, B6, B9 and E, iron, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, iodine and potassium. Let’s not forget about flavonoids, fiber and the fact that apples are very low in calories!
In addition, several studies over time have shown that apples contain significant amounts of collagen and elastin, substances that help maintain skin elasticity.
