I love when people ask for the best anti-aging foods because that’s exactly where the focus should be. Not on creams, oils or whatever other products someone wants to sell you. The human body is going to age no matter how much money you spend. The control you have over that is what you put into your body.
Sure, there are products which can help as well but looking at your diet is by far the best thing you can do to slow down (and in many cases reverse) the effects of aging.

The quicker you act – the better and I guarantee this (completely free) audio-book will change your life.
Whenever I talk about a healthy diet I can see your eyes just glazing over. I mean, I can’t even see your eyes and I know they’re glazing over.

Why they work: This fruit is packed with vitamin C, which helps guard against the wrinkling effects of sun damage. Plus, says Debra Jaliman, MD, an assistant professor of dermatology at Mt.
