Are you searching for the best foods for anti aging? There are many wonderful anti aging foods you can easily include into your diet.

The anti aging benefits of many of the foods available today can help you look younger; give you more energy and better health.

Top Anti Aging Foods

Gogi berries would have to be my number one choice, they are easy to pop into a container and slip into your handbag for a healthy snack. I like to mix them with almonds, which are considered a top fat burning food.

Gogi berries contain vitamin C, E, B complex vitamins, iron and beta carotene. You only need a small handful of gogi berries to get the required amount of nutritional benefits needed.

Almonds are very high in protein; contain copper, zinc, magnesium, phosphorus, vitamin E, and potassium.

Apples are another great and easy snack to put into your bag, for those times when you are feeling peckish. They contain vitamins C, A, B, potassium, calcium, folate, sodium, iron and phosphorus. Studies have also shown that people, who eat apples on a daily basis have less abdominal fat.

Chia seeds would have to be one of the greatest anti aging foods. I can’t live without them, I put them into a smoothie and they definitely give you more energy. They are extremely high in antioxidants, needed to help fight free radicals. They also contain iron, magnesium, vitamin B, potassium, phosphorus, calcium, zinc, fibre and many more minerals and vitamins, too many for me to list.

Organic amaranth is full of fiber, vitamins C, E, A, manganese, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, folate, selemiun, and high amounts of amino acids. It contains no saturated fat, and is gluten free. It digests slowly, helping you feel fuller for longer, and will give you more energy, making it great for helping you lose weight.

Acai berries for many years had been the secret of the Amazon rainforest, and now are known to the rest of the world. Popular with many celebrities and sports stars, this little berry can increase your energy, helping in weight loss and can increase your libido. It contains amino acids, antioxidants and is considered one of the top 10 superfoods.

Tomatoes can not only help protect your skin from UV rays from the sun, cooked organic tomatoes make another wonderful anti aging food. They are non fattening and contain vitamins A, K, B6, C potassium, niacin and folate. You can get the benefits of tomatoes from tomatoe paste and organic tomato ketchup.

Organic yoghurt contains phosphorus, niacin, iron, riboflavin, vitamin A, and by eating yoghurt, you double the absorption of calcium in your body. Eating yoghurt is very beneficial for your digestive system.

Blueberries are full of antioxidants, and you can enjoy them fresh or frozen when not in season. I love to put them into a smoothie with chia seeds. Blueberries contain iron, vitamin E, sodium, are very high in potassium and fibre, and make another great fat burning food as well. They are great for strengthening your immune system, cleansing your blood and good for your digestion.

And last but not least, something sweet to help get rid of wrinkles, dark chocolate. You only need a small amount a day, 3.5 ounces or 100 grams and you need to make sure it is 70% or higher in cocoa, and made from coco butter. Dark chocolate is very high in antioxidants and gives you great anti aging benefits.

There are so many great foods for anti aging, it can be a joy to look after your health and look younger.
