10 Superfoods That Will Help You Look and Age Better

The benefits from eating healthy are endless. Here are 10 superfoods that will help you to look better and age slower!

1. Acai Fruit – This little berry is one of the most nutritious and powerful foods in the world. It can often be found in juice form in health food and gourmet stores.

2. Anything in the “Allium Family” – Garlic, onions, leeks, scallions, chives and shallots can all help the liver eliminate toxins and carcinogens.

3. Barley – This can be used as a breakfast cereal, in soups and stews, and as a rice substitute. Barley’s also high in fiber, helping metabolize fats, cholesterol and carbohydrates.

4. Green Foods – Green foods like wheat and barley grasses can be bought in powder, tablet or juice form, and offer greater levels of nutrients than green leafy vegetables. They also help cholesterol, blood pressure and immune response.

5. Buckwheat: Seed & Grain – Buckwheat is loaded with protein, high in amino acid, stabilizes blood sugar and reduces hypertension.

6. Beans & Lentils – You can reduce cholesterol while beefing up on antioxidants, folic acid and potassium. Try kidney, black, navy, pinto, chickpeas, soybeans, peas and lentils.

7. Hot Peppers – Both bell and chili peppers contain antioxidants, have twice the Vitamin C as citrus fruit and work as great fat burners.

8. Nuts & Seeds – You can’t go wrong with a handful of nuts a day; walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, macadamia and pistachio nuts contain Omega3 fats, which are great for your heart. Raw and unsalted are the best.

9. Sprouts – Numerous varieties of sprouts are great with any meal. They’re a great source of protein and Vitamin C. Try adding them to any dish and your immune system will get a boost.

10. Yogurt and Kefir – These cultured foods contain healthful bacteria that aid immune function, and the calcium helps burn fat. Try using them as a base for a smoothie.
