The Fruit Salad Secret to Fight Aging
Some people slather on expensive creams and serums to fight the signs of aging.
I hate to rain on their parade…
But most of these products are a waste of money.
If you want REAL anti-aging support, it won’t come from what you put on your body but from what you put in it.
What you eat can either speed up aging or slow it down.
To pump the brakes on your own timeline, try stocking your fridge with these six antioxidant-packed fruits.
Health food doesn’t have to be bland, tasteless, or even green for that matter. Some of the foods that pack the highest antioxidant punch are juicy, delicious fruits.
The antioxidants in fruit fight the free radicals that damage cells, cause inflammation, and ultimately set the stage for aging and disease.
But not all fruits are built the same. Some provide even MORE anti-aging protection than others.
Topping the list are delicious blueberries. They contain the highest number of antioxidants of all the fruits and vegetables in your local produce aisle.
Studies show blueberries help battle arthritis-driven knee pain and cognitive decline.
The berries contain a type of antioxidant called anthocyanins. These plant pigments help reduce the oxidation and inflammation at the root of aging, heart disease, cancer, and cognitive issues.
Next on the list is grapefruit. Your lips might pucker at the thought of this tart fruit, but it’s a fantastic source of vitamin C and collagen. This dynamic duo can directly prevent skin aging while also reducing the risk of joint problems.
Grapefruit also contains lycopene, a potent antioxidant shown to help prevent certain types of cancer.
Not many people realize that strawberries… the next fruit on our list… are also high on the antioxidant list. Since they provide plenty of vitamin C, fiber, and potassium, they’re known for promoting heart and gut health while also boosting your immune system.
The fourth fruit in our anti-aging salad is the pomegranate. Pomegranates have even more antioxidant power than green tea or red wine. They provide anthocyanins, quercetin, catechins, and ellagic acid—some of the best-known inflammation fighters.
So it’s no surprise that a study showed pomegranates help treat inflammatory conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and metabolic disorders.
Next is a fruit I eat regularly because it helps keep my gout under control: tart cherries.
Like the other fruits on the list, they contain potent antioxidants. In this case, they’re quercetin, cyanidin, and melatonin, all of which can help fight chronic inflammation reducing the risk of inflammatory disease.
I’ll round out my list with raspberries. In addition to providing quercetin, vitamin C, and ellagic acid, raspberries are a good source of manganese (which promotes healthy skin and bones) and potassium (which is good for your heart).
Since different types of fruit contain different antioxidants, the more variety you eat, the better.
P.S. If you have diabetes, you might think fruit is off-limits. But that’s simply NOT true. Certain fruits are terrific for diabetics. And one, in particular, has been shown to IMPROVE insulin resistance. You’ll find all the details right here.
