The old adage that we are what we eat seems more true than ever before. These top 10 anti-aging superfoods really push the point home that we need to be aware of what we eat in order to enjoy the best health and beauty that we can. And with todays advanced research and knowledge we can be very aware of and alert to new understanding and ways to keep ourselves more fit and agile than any previous generation.

Many of these secrets may seem obvious, and they are! But the thing is, we need to practice these things every time we eat. So lets think about berries.

All berries are delicious, but they also contain important antioxidants that help our skin to stay young looking, and us to stay young. Blueberries are one of the most important berries to remember. Because they grow on the tops of hillsides in cold areas exposed to the sunshine this pretty little fruit has maximized its ability to protect itself from the suns rays. And that gets passed on to us whenever we eat them.

Another great thing about blueberries is that they are almost as yummy frozen as they are fresh. So you can eat them year round and get the benefit whenever you want. Toss them on yogurt or serve them with oatmeal. Anyway you do it, these little gems should top your list of berries for breakfast, dinner, lunch, snacks, . . . well, you get the picture.

Avocado is another superfood. It is filled with good fats and Vitamin E, not to mention tons of other valuable nutrients. Perhaps its most spectacular effect on the body is how it supports the digestion and capacity of the body to put the nutrition from other foods that we eat to work. Research shows that avocadoes support how well our body can utilize nutrients from everything we eatfor as much as 24 hours after we eat the avocado. Avocado, perhaps because of its levels of good fatsare also really good at making us feel full and reducing appetite levels. So if you are counting calories and watching what goes in, dont exclude this astonishing fruit (well, drupe, but it is definitely not a vegetable, either way).
