Anti Aging – Anti Aging Foods

Take charge of your youth with these three anti-aging superstar foods.


Wild Alaskan Salmon – Occasionally available fresh, frequently available frozen, and always available canned; this superstar protein is in a league of its own when it comes to helping you stay young.  Wild Alaskan salmon is exploding with several key anti-aging nutrients including omega 3 fats, vitamin D, selenium, and the algae-derived powerful antioxidant pigment astaxanthin.


Walnuts – These delectable morsels are truly a superstar anti-aging snack.  Walnuts provide a gold mine of nutrients, especially relevant to healthy aging, including antioxidants, polyphenols, vitamin E, folate, fiber, magnesium, and most notably a hefty dose of plant-based omega 3 fats.

Sunflower Seeds – Like their cousins nuts, sunflower seeds are just as healthy as they are delicious.  They provide a super-concentrated package of make-me-younger goodness, including polyunsaturated fats, magnesium, and potassium that maintain healthy blood flow along with super-charged antioxidant power thanks to their rich supply of vitamin E and selenium.
