Nutrition plays a profound role in optimal bodily function and longevity. The food we eat greatly influences how long our body stays fit and young. Here are 12 superfoods that may help you slow down the aging process – together with scientific references:

1. Pomegranate


Recently discovered to have strong anti-aging properties, pomegranates are a great fruit you can incorporate into your diet to help you stay young and healthy. Based on a study published in the journal Nature Medicine, pomegranates were found to contain a molecule called Urolithin A. This molecule was able to increase the lifespan of animal models as well as increase muscle function in aging test subjects. [1] Aside from this, pomegranates are naturally rich in vitamins K, C, B6 and minerals like phosphorus and potassium.

2. Broccoli


This amazing vegetable deserves more love. Rich in a dietary compound called Sulforaphane, broccoli is a true superfood. The compound has been linked to a decrease in the likelihood of developing prostate cancer and also works well as a supplement to treat type 2 diabetes. [2][3]

3. Red Grapes / Red Wine

Red Grapes

Red grapes are rich in Resveratrol, which helps the body repair itself by killing off damaged cells before they transition into cancer. [4] Resveratrol is also a potent anti-inflammatory capable of reducing inflammation in conditions such as asthma, COPD, and even ear infections. [5] Drink responsibly, or substitute wine with red grape juice for benefits without the alcohol.

4. Nuts


Nuts have long been considered to be “Nature’s survival food” since they contain modest amounts of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. They also contain Omega-3s, which can help you lower your cholesterol, reduce inflammation, improve depression, and even fight dementia. [6]

5. Blueberries

Blueberries are bite-sized marvels that can do wonders for your health. According to a study released by the American Chemical Society, blueberries can improve cognition and can even go as far as providing support for Alzheimer’s disease. [7] Aside from that, they also perform the double duty of lowering blood pressure and reducing arterial stiffness with as little as one cup a day consumed. [8]

6. Salmon


Wild Salmon is a great source of healthy Omega-3 fatty acids, which can help reduce the risk of stroke and heart disease when consumed. Just make sure to buy wild salmon, as farmed salmon has been known to be fed contaminated fishmeal that can be toxic to the body.

7. Yogurt


Yogurt is a great snack that you can easily pair with other superfoods like blueberries and nuts. When consumed regularly, the calcium in yogurt can help keep your bones strong while its probiotic bacteria can keep your digestion in tip top shape.

8. Fiber


Although technically not a food, fiber is a nutrient found in many foods – especially fruits and vegetables. It also helps you feel fuller, which keeps you from eating more, while lowering bad cholesterol and helping regulate your digestive system.

9. Olive Oil

Olive Oil

Another wide used ingredient in the Mediterranean diet, olive oil helps boost our levels of good cholesterol which in turn lowers the risk of heart disease. Its cholesterol-lowering effect is so remarkable that even the American Heart Association recommends its use. [11]

10. Tea


Black, green, white and oolong teas have been associated with various health benefits. Note that for health purists, loose leaf tea is often considered preferable to tea bags, owing to chemical residues in the paper of the tea bags which can end up in the tea.

11. Chocolate


Chocolate’s health giving properties are due to its principal ingredient – cacao – which is noted for numerous health benefits. For best health benefits, look for dark chocolate with highest cacao content – or even 100% pure cacao (ideally raw) – which can be incorporated into smoothies, oatmeal, beverages and even snacked on as-is!

12. Tomatoes


A staple of the healthy Mediterranean diet, tomatoes are good for your heart since they can reduce bad cholesterol, prevent blood clots, and help regulate blood pressure. [9] They also have a cancer-fighting component in the form of lycopene, which has been linked to reducing the growth of prostate cancer. [10]

😳 What Tinnitus Does To Your Brain Cells (And How To Stop It)

After 47 years of studies and countless brain scans done on more than 2,400 tinnitus patients, scientists at the MIT Institute found that in a shocking 96% of cases, tinnitus was actually shrinking their brain cells.

As it turns out, tinnitus and brain health are strongly linked.
