Blueberries and pomegranates are a perfect combination of nutrition and beauty combined. Each contains flavonoids, which is a group of phytochemicals that not only give these berries their vibrant color but also provide powerful antioxidant benefits that can counteract[combat?] cell damage in the body. Blueberries rank among the highest in antioxidant content of all berries; just 3.5 ounces of blueberries provide up to five times the antioxidant power found in other vegetables and fruits.
Pomegranates not only help support our immune system against free radical damage but they contain ellagic acid which can support the regeneration of skin cells, extend the life of fibroblasts cells which produce collagen and elastin and, finally, contain anthocyanins, which aid in supporting the body against oxidative stress and environmental damage.
