  1. Oranges – Since ancient times, this fruit has been well-known for its anti-aging ingredients such as, Vitamin C and beta carotene. Start your day with a glass of fresh orange juice, a natural energy booster.
  2. Blueberries – Antioxidants are great anti-aging molecules that not only slow aging, but also, help in rebuilding damaged cells within the body. When it comes to antioxidants, blueberries are high on this molecule content.
  3. Broccoli – Detoxification is important to stay healthy and look young. Broccoli is one vegetable which helps in removing toxins from the body and keeps the digestive system healthy.

It also contains carotenoids that keep eyes healthy.
  5. Fish – Like oranges, fish is also considered as a wonderful anti-aging superfood since earlier times. Considered the best source of Omega-3 fatty acids, fish is a must in daily diet.
  6. Nuts – Gorging on fast foods during snack time is one bad habit that can ruin your health in the long-term. Bid adieu to this ruinous habit and satisfy your appetite with a healthy snack like nuts. Zinc, iron, magnesium, potassium, copper, selenium and fiber – these are all anti-aging elements and they are all present in nuts in sufficient amounts.
  7. Chlorella – Does Chlorella sound new to you? Let me tell you it is an algae. It’s a great anti-aging superfood having Chlorella Growth Factor or CGF that triggers skin cell growth. Include chlorella to your daily diet and admire your youthful look in front of the mirror.
