Dr. Mehmet Oz and Dr. Nicholas Perricone are two of the country's leading advisors in health and beauty.
Both of them recommend high-antioxidant superfruits for their skin cell-protective properties.
Antioxidants are the body's only way to combat the harmful oxidative effects of pollutants and sun damage at the cellular level.
Their advice is to eat plenty of "superfruits" with rich, dark and bright colors. The superfruits are known to have a high ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity).
Two of the highest ORAC superfruits are blueberries and acai berries. This smoothie combines them both into a single, nutrient-balanced and delicious drink that is a great breakfast or even a post-workout meal replacement.
