Every woman takes time to style her hair and does her nails and makeup every morning as part of her beauty regimen but does she takes time to eat foods that provide her that glowing and youthful appearance? Natural remedies and holistic treatments are here to stay and the foods we eat play a big part to our overall health and outward appearance.

One of the beauty foods is the beautiful and plump red tomato that is known for its lycopene. This carotenoid is responsible for the tomato’s red color and it is said to be better with a little processing. Tomatoes also provide beta carotene, calcium, iron, lutein/zeaxanthin, magnesium, potassium, vitamins C and E. Lutein, another carotenoid is said to be a sun protection nutrient and calcium helps to give you stronger teeth.

As I continue to search the web for more natural remedies and holistic treatment, I found more alternative remedies such as the Irvingia Gabonesis which refers to a fruit resembling the juicy mango that I love. It is said that the fruit can help to lower blood pressure and href=”http://www.irvingia-gabonensis.org/”>click here if you want to find out more.

Blueberries are also a beauty food that does alot to protect collagen and the credit goes to the anthocyanins that are present in these little berries. Packed with Vitamin C and E, potassium, lutein/zeaxanthin and ellagic acid, Vitamin C helps to build collagen and its the body’s water-based antioxidant, with vitamin E serving as C’s fat-based antioxidant partner.
