Now is a good a time as ever to eat right to slow down the aging process or 'turn back the clock'. Several types of superfoods contain powerful nutrients that can actually help keep signs of aging at bay. In particular, many raw fruits and vegetables lend a juicy concentration of protective vitamins, beauty minerals, and valuable antioxidants, making them the â€œbeauty creamsâ€ of the edible world. Superfood smoothies are a key way to consume this beneficial spectrum of anti-aging powerhouses.
For best results, aim for smoothies that are high in antioxidant foods, rich in fresh produce, include healthy fats, and use plenty of purified water.
Mulberries â€” Containing a high concentration of Resveratrol, a sought-after antioxidant that studies have shown to promote cardiovascular health and help combat aging, mulberries are an invaluable tool to have in any anti-aging arsenal.
Acai â€” The excitingly high levels of antioxidants (in the form of polyphenols) can help strengthen the cardiovascular system and can even help protect the skin. Plus, acai contains healthy monosaturated fats - the same fats found in olive oil that are renowned for promoting long-lasting beauty.
Camu Powder â€” Camu is best known for its mega vitamin C content, which not only helps to keep disease at bay, but is also invaluable for healthy skin - healing and repairing damage to connective tissues, and therefore preventing and reducing wrinkles.
