7 Foods That Keep You Young


Looking young seems to be a foremost priority of the over 30 crowd these days. Not just women, even men are wary of aging and hollywood only encourages this preoccupation. Instead of resorting to botox, plastic surgery or using the number of anti-aging chemical creams that have flooded the markets, one can go the natural route and opt for fruits and vegetables to help fight all age-related problems. Here are a few superfoods that can help control aging and make you look younger, but more importantly, vibrant and healthy.


1. Avocado

Apart from being high in Vitamin E, avocados are rich in antioxidants which help protect the skin. Avocados help in regenerating skin cells which makes your skin look fresh, giving a more youthful complexion.

2. Walnuts

Walnuts are a rich source of Vitamin E and having a handful can help your skin look great.

3. Kidney Beans

These pulses are full of fibre and potassium which help reduce the cholesterol levels and thus reduce the risk of any heart disease. But their major health benefit is that they are packed with proteins.

4. Broccoli

Broccoli is a great source of fibre and Vitamin C which not only help control weight, but also help to fight heart diseases. Sulforaphane found in broccoli hinders the growth of cancer cells.

5. Blueberries

Blueberries are rich in Vitamin C, which help in easy circulation of blood. Blueberries also contain certain minerals which help control the anti-ageing process. High in potassium, these berries help fight puffiness.

6. Aloe Vera juice

Aloe vera juice is excellent if you want younger-looking skin. Have 30 ml aloe vera juice diluted with 100 ml water early morning on empty stomach. And after 20-30 minutes you can have your regular breakfast.

7. Brazil nuts

Brazil nuts are a very rich source of selenium, a mineral that works very well with Vitamin E to stop oxidative stress and cell damage caused by free radicals; thus, slowing down the aging process. But should be eaten in moderation (two nuts a day) because of its high fat content.
