Vitamin C is a vitamin that must be ingested through the diet, because the human body is unable to synthesise it. Helps to raise immune-system barriers and reduces fatigue and tiredness. Vitamin C also has strong antioxidant properties: it fights the free radicals responsible for cellular ageing. It is also essential for collagen biosynthesis, because it is responsible for the transformation of two structural amino acids that are characteristic of this protein.
Melon is a fruit that is rich in vitamins and minerals. Regular consumption of melon helps to prevent exogenous and endogenous oxidative stress on the skin. The presence of vitamin A and C helps to counteract ageing by fighting the damage caused by free radicals. The antioxidant enzymes are also very effective in helping to fade scars. In addition, it stimulates the production of melanin, facilitating tanning and protecting skin from the sun's rays.
Emblica officinalis (Amla, or Indian Gooseberry) is an Indian fruit that is considered to be a superfruit. It has a very high capacity to eliminate free radicals, and as such is a powerful antioxidant, offering considerable levels of UV protection.
