A Checklist of Anti Aging Antioxidant Rich Foods!


To slow down the aging process requires a diet of anti aging antioxidant rich foods. This article will explore 17 different foods that will provide you with a wide choice of options to help you augment your meals with powerful and nutritious age-defying fruits and vegetables.

Not to date myself but I grew up hearing the phrase, “An Apple a Day Keeps the Doctor Away!” It’s a phrase that dates all the way back to the Middle Ages. Back then the English said, “To eat an apple before going to bed will make the doctor beg his bread.” Well, it looks like an apple a day will do more than just keep the doctor away.

Recent research shows that an apple a day could also reduce the risk of breast, lung and prostate cancer, significantly cut heart disease risk, protect against Alzheimer’s disease, prevent osteoporosis, improve memory and learning, fight the damaging effect of “bad” LDL cholesterol, improve lung function, aid digestion, and reduce the risk of developing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in smokers. Quite a list of health benefits from a piece of fruit that is readily available in most grocery stores. The key is not to peal off the skin. That is where most of the anti aging antioxidant benefits are found.

But, as good as the apple is there are more choices than ever in consuming a diet rich in even more powerful anti aging antioxidant rich foods. So, move over Mr. Apple to make way for these disease fighters:

Most of the above foods are fruits. When you look at the potential foods from the vegetable world the list gets even longer with additional nutritional benefits. Foods that are powerful enough to help lower cholesterol, reduce your risk for heart disease and cancer, and positively affect your mood. Unlike most drugs, there are no side effects! According to nutritionist Elizabeth Somer, author of Nutrition for a Healthy Pregnancy, Food & Mood and The Essential Guide to Vitamins and Minerals:

“I’d say that 50% to 70% of suffering could be eliminated by what people eat and how they move: heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and hypertension can all be impacted.”

If you want to positively impact all areas of health and slow down your aging process, then getting to know your produce department is essential. The more colorful your diet of fruits and vegetables, the more anti aging antioxidants you will get. Every hue signifies a different class of nutrients. Here is a general guideline to help you:

Apples are a good start to keeping the doctor away. But be sure to mix and match the colors of other fruits and vegetables to help create an anti aging antioxidant eating plan.

Until next time, may we both age youthfully!
