Purple Foods Promote Health and Anti-Aging

Purple Foods Promote Health and Anti-AgingPurple fruits and vegetables, including acai and blueberries, contain important nutrients that have shown many health benefits including anti-aging. These purple antioxidants, called anthocyanins, have been shown to protect the heart and vision, promote mental focus, and prevent oxidative stress. Resveratrol is another fat-soluble compound found in some purple foods, such as grapes, red wine, purple grape juice, peanuts, and some berries. Research has indicated that purple foods may provide a cure for cancer.
