Fight aging with superfoods

Though nothing can really turn back the hands of time, we can all try our best to slow it down. If you are looking for a natural way to look and feel young, try these top 20 anti-aging superfoods.

Blueberries

Blueberries

When it comes to anti-aging molecules, antioxidants are the cream of the crop. These molecules can slow down the aging process and even help rebuild damaged cells within the body. Blueberries are one of the most antioxidant-rich foods on the planet.

Salsa

Foods made out of tomatoes contain a healthy amount of lycopene, an essential nutrient that can cut the risk of certain types of cancers. Lycopene's anti-aging properties become more and more vital as the years pass.

Nuts

If you are searching for a healthy snack, go nuts with nuts. Not only do nuts help suppress your appetite, they also contain magnesium, iron, zinc, potassium, selenium, copper, fiber and healthy types of fats.

Orange juice

Orange juice

A glass of orange juice in the morning can start your day off right, giving your body beta carotene, vitamin C and many other anti-aging elements. Orange juice is also a natural energy booster, and a must-have superfood.

Chlorella

To keep your skin looking and feeling young, add chlorella (which is an algae) to your diet. This true anti-aging superfood has Chlorella Growth Factor, commonly known as CGF, which can promote skin cell growth.

Fish

When it comes to sources for omega-3 fatty acids, fish is regarded by many as the best possible source. Fresh salmon contains high amounts of the omega-3 fatty acids that have shown to help keep adults mentally sharp as they age.

Broccoli

Able to help remove toxins, eating broccoli a few times per week is a great way to stay feeling young. When preparing broccoli, use fresh broccoli rather than frozen broccoli because the freezing process removes some of the natural phytochemicals in this superfood.

Green tea

Research has suggested a link between drinking green tea and a lowered chance of breast cancer. The scientific reasoning is the fact that green tea helps limit the amount of estrogen in the body. An abundance of estrogen can increase your breast cancer likelihood.

Spinach

Popeye might have been on to something with this superfood. Not only does spinach contain the needed amounts of iron and calcium, it also has a pair of carotenoids that can keep your eyes youthful and functioning properly.

Coffee

Not only can coffee help you make it through a rough day, it can also have a positive affect on your heath. Colon cancer rates among those who drink coffee on a regular basis are lower, as are the rates for diabetes.
