Feel youthful inside and out with our favourite age-busting superfoods. 

Avocado

This is loaded with vitamin E and protective antioxidants for luminous skin and glossy hair. It also contains a high folate content to boost cell turnover for a youthful complexion.

Blueberries

Add these to your breakfast muesli for an early dose of look younger goodness. They’re rich in vitamin C to stimulate circulation, while their high potassium levels will minimise puffiness and fluid retention.

Red wine

Yes, it’s true! Wine is crammed with  antioxidants to defend against heart disease. Red grape skin also contains the anti-inflammatory compound, resveratrol, to curb the effects of ageing.

Broccoli

Loaded with fibre, this vegetable helps maintain a healthy body weight and fights heart disease with vitamin C and beta-carotene. Steam it to keep all the goodness in.

Dark chocolate

It’s the news we’ve all been waiting for! As long as it’s made with at least 70% cocoa, you can enjoy small doses of this sweet treat, which is full of protein and B vitamins to burn fat  and improve your skin and hair.

Kidney beans

Pulses (especially kidney beans) contain plenty of heart-healthy fibre, potassium and zinc. They’re also packed with protein. In fact, weight for weight dried beans contain as much protein as a fillet steak!
