Don’t search for your nearest cosmetic surgeon yet, superfoods are the natural answer to anti-ageing and youthful skin.
Goji berries are the favourite superfood for 2009. Eaten by Victoria Beckham, Kate Moss, Liz Hurley and Mischa Barton, they are hailed by A-list elite for their skin smoothing and energy boosting abilities. They also contain 500 times the amount of vitamin C found in an orange, and are traditionally used to strength the heart, boost the immune system and trigger the pituitary glands that produce the human growth hormone HGH, which is an extremely effective anti-ageing hormone.
Greg Shaw who helps run Creative Nature, a firm who offer top superfoods including apricot kernels, goji berries and spirulina said, ‘Superfoods are the new flavour of the month and are extremly cost effective, in most cases they are in fact cheaper than lotions and potions you would buy at leading pharmacies and department stores.
‘One of the other best kept celebrity secrets we have encountered is the benefits of barley grass. So many celebrities towards the back end of 2008 took on the raw food diet, including Demi Moore. Barley grass is extremely popular because it is very alkaline, and can therefore help to maintain the body’s alkaline and acidity balance. Our cells cannot function properly if our pH levels move out of a narrow range and many report the positive effects this has on the skin.’
