Purple vegetables

The best ally for anti-ageing

Purple vegetables have a high anthocyanin and lycopene content, natural pigments which act as powerful anti-oxidants, prevent hypertension and have vasodilator properties. There is also evidence to suggest that carotenoids, which are abundant in these types of foodstuffs, protect the skin against the sun and increase the body's defences against ultraviolet light. A number of studies also indicate that they are efficient regulators of glucose, which makes them ideal for diabetics.

Red vegetables

Effective protection against urinary infections

Rich in lycopene and anthocyanin, red vegetables have significant depurative effects which help to prevent diseases of the urinary tract as well as well as prostate cancer. They also play a strong role in fighting against the cellular ageing process.

Orange and yellow fruit and vegetables

Vitamins for the eyes, skin and heart

These types of fruit and vegetables are rich in vitamins A and B, as well as potassium, and help to maintain healthy eyes, whilst also reducing the risk of cancer and cardiac problems, and improving the effectiveness of the body's immune system. The latest studies also highlight their photoprotective properties, which gives them extra benefits in terms of skincare.

Green vegetables

Bones and dental care

Green vegetables contain nutrients such as magnesium, which aids the process of muscular relaxation, thereby helping to avoid cramp. They also contain vitamin K which helps to maintain good eyesight as well as strong teeth and bones. Apart from this, they improve kidney and liver function.

White vegetables

Take care of your heart and strengthen your joints

White vegetables, like most others, have significant anti-carcinogenic properties. They are very beneficial in terms of reducing cholesterol and preventing heart problems as well as cerebrovascular episodes and strokes. This range of products also contains minerals, such as sodium, which help to maintain strong joints.
