Wrinkles are unavoidable, especially once we hit 30, but this raspberry beet smoothie might just prove otherwise.
According to researchers, you could reduce the depth and appearance of wrinkles with beet juice by as much as 60%! The folate in beets help fight wrinkles and other skin conditions, as well as the naturally occurring nitrates that improve blood flow and give you that youthful glow.
Raspberries are also incredibly high in antioxidants, which are crucial if you want to slow down aging of the skin, and prevent DNA mutations that could otherwise manifest as cancer.
Did I mention that this smoothie also tastes incredible? Beets and raspberries pair perfectly, apparently. Why not go ahead and try it yourself? Let me know what you think in the comments below!
