Out of all the berries, blueberries always come out on top as the best superfood. Rich in both vitamins and fibre, this little berry is packed with anthocyanin, which is a type of flavonoid that provides essential antioxidants to help protect against free radicals that contribute to ageing skin. Berries are a great superfood for adding to your morning oats or to smoothies and are just as delicious to consume on their own.
