I’ve long recommended eating berries for their health-protective fiber and antioxidants. But new information about ellagic acid – an antioxidant found in numerous fruits, especially raspberries, strawberries and cranberries as well as vegetables and nuts – points to berries’ potential as a topical application to help prevent collagen destruction and moderate the inflammatory response. A great deal of well-designed research shows that many compounds in berries, whether applied to the skin or eaten in the form of whole fruit, are among the most protective nutrients your body can utilize. Until topical ellagic-acid-based preparations are widely available, eating berries regularly is one of the best, not to mention tastiest, moves you can make for overall health.
