Colourful plant colours and their benefits: Carotenoids from yellow, orange or red fruits and vegetables come first. For example, beta-carotene is particularly important for our skin. This is converted into vitamin A in the body. It supports our immune system, cell growth and skin renewal. It can also improve the vision of our eyes. Chlorophyll – the green dye is found in lettuce, spinach, broccoli and parsley and is particularly beneficial for our health. Yellow flavonoids can be found in citrus fruits, green tea or berry fruit. Blue anthocyanins – found in blue grapes, red cabbage, cherries and blueberries. Especially the anthocyanins of blueberries have a positive effect on the eyes and make it easier to distinguish between light and dark. A colourful variety of secondary plant substances provides us with everything our body needs.
