The 5 Best Anti Aging Foods That Will Make Your Skin Sparkle

Updated on July 1, 2013

The best anti aging foods all come from a natural source. That means no processed foods, no sugar, and absolutely no cookies, candies, cakes, or ice cream.

Now, I’m not saying you can’t eat those sometimes yummy foods from time to time. It is when they start making regular appearances in your life that they become a problem.

So what are the best anti aging foods? Let’s have a look at five of them:

1. Fruits. Smoothies, fruit salads, or just eating fruits as they are is yummy, wouldn’t you agree? Fruits are filled with vitamins, minerals, and many other nutrients that researchers probably haven’t even discovered yet, so stock up!

2. Vegetables. I like to make vegetable juices, because I’m not very good at eating my vegetables, although I have gotten better in the last few years. If you make a spinach, celery, orange juice it doesn’t taste horrible, and your body gets what it needs.

3. Berries. Vitamins, and antioxidants can be found in abundance in blueberries, strawberries, cloudberries, and blackberries, just to name a few of them. They taste great when eaten alone, or just thrown in smoothies. I tend to eat them in a banana smoothie.

4. Fish. Wild fish such as salmon, mackerel, and anchovies are filled with healthy omega-3 fatty acids, which are not only good for your skin, but your overall health as well. You want to make sure the fish you eat is harvested from areas with clean water, as there are a lot of pollution issues today.

5. Grass-Fed Beef. When you turn 40, you start losing about 1% of your muscle mass each and every year. One way to combat this is to give your body enough protein. Grass-fed beef, organic eggs, and chicken are great ways to boost your protein intake. Grass-fed beef also contains much more omega-3 fatty acids than factory farmed beef.

That’s all I have for you. One of the most important aspects of all this is that you avoid the bad foods, and eat the good ones consistently. And that's what natural anti aging skin care is all about, isn't it?

There’s nothing wrong with having a pizza or eating an ice cream once a week, or even once a month, just don’t do it too much, because that’s when it can be a problem.

Many of these processed foods also contain chemicals that send artificial signals to our brain to eat more, so we have to be very careful.

That's all I have for you this time. Take care and all the best with your anti aging skin care adventures!

      I like these ideas. I believe that the anti-oxidant properties of berries are not much appreciated in the U.S.A. I am lucky that by living in Arizona I have access to a lot of grass-fed (or as we call it, range fed) beef. It is good to cut out that fat. Thank you for this overview of healthful eating and anti-aging nutrition.
