Then keep reading……..

These next 7 foods will help you to keep your Hair, Nails and Skin looking youthful, so next time you go shopping, don’t forget to  add these to your basket.

1.  Olive Oil

Not only do the  monounsaturated fats contained in olive oil support healthy arteries and a healthy heart, but olive oil also contains polyphenols, a potent anti-oxidant that may help prevent a number of age-related diseases.   I recommend organic extra virgin olive oil drizzled over your salads and vegetables for the most anti-aging bang for your buck.

2.  Red Wine

That’s right, a glass of red wine daily may indeed have a positive effect on your health due to its resveratrol content, a unique anti-oxidant that can help fight against diabetes, heart disease, and age-related memory loss. Just don’t overdo it!!!

3.  Beans

The unique proteins in beans thicken and strengthen your hair cells, so you can  enjoy a full head of hair as you get older

4.  Brazil Nuts

Brazil nuts are rich in selenium, a mineral which aids in the production of  the anti-oxidant glutathione to help slow down the  skin aging process.  Just 2 nuts a day will provide you with enough selenium to reap its anti-aging benefits.

5.  Tomatoes

Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, which has been shown to support heart health and  healthy cholesterol levels as you age.   Lycopene also acts as a natural sun block to keep skin youthful and protected from harmful UV rays.

6.  Raspberries & Blueberries

These two berries contain important anti-oxidants to help offset inflammation and oxidative stress that  contribute to skin aging and wrinkles.  Just one serving of either or these berries contains  more anti-oxidants than 10 servings of most other fruits and vegetables!

7.  Organic Eggs

Despite the bad rap eggs  get because of their cholesterol content, which is based on completely erroneous science, eggs are rich in biotin and iron which help to promote healthy, youthful skin and hair.
