There are at least fifty naturally-occurring varieties of eggplant available on Earth, but you'll only find one or two of them at your local supermarket.

They're likely to be those which are:

  • the easiest to grow;
  • the easiest to transport;
  • the easiest to promote and sell;
  • the most readily recognised.

The nutrition of the "super" market bares no semblance to the antioxidant diversity required for the synergistic benefits mandated by actual "anti-aging" and is not completely and reliably available in supplements.

Seedless grapes too, seem like a "super" idea, yet grape seed (Vitis Vinifera) proanthocyanidins are among the strongest antioxidants.

Coles, Safeway and Woolworths will gladly sell back to you what their food producers have taken out by way of additional products from Blackmores, Suisse and Nature's Own in the "health care" isle.

The "supermarket" — though often convenient — is ultimately representative of less physical benefit than the traditional market it replaces.

Topically, the situation for a patient's organic skin is comparable:

  • The most popular of skin care products are among the worst — the most effective of products typically have a short shelf life, are rarely discussed, not American and generally unavailable within the US;

  • The most common of skin care practices represent skin care failure — bona fide skin care is not mass produced and available as brands, products and homogenous advice — it is latent within individually-relevant ingredients;

  • No one brand or method provides a comprehensive or permanent answer to individual needs just as no one single nutrient is best;

  • As a purportedly superior answer to the department store, beauty therapists do not concentrate on fundamental biological matters, they exist in a similarly financially-driven vacuum mandating refutation of the skin as organic and placement of business concerns above those of patients;

  • Excess skin care and antioxidant use — like heavy reliance on non-diverse foods — produces relative long-term detriment — almost all current skincare use is mindless or without skill to a greater or lesser extent.
