Figs are a great addition to your diet as they contain a high amount of vitamin C, a vital antioxidant that combats free-radical damage and helps to protect cells all while supporting the formation of collagen, and repairing tissue damage throughout the body.
Studies have found that fig extract has an antioxidative and anti collagenase effect on wrinkled skin and assisted in reducing the percentage of wrinkle depth.
Figs also contain hair-loving nutrients like magnesium, vitamin C and vitamin E, which stimulate blood circulation in the scalp helping to promote hair growth.
Figs are often overlooked as smoothie ingredient, but we highly recommend you give them a go for all the benefits along with the great taste.
