Small Red Beans
These are so inexpensive they’re a must-have purchase to include in your shopping basket on your next trip. A kilogramme of these is usually in the pennies not the pounds and they are full- loaded with even more antioxidants than cultivated or wild blueberries. Put a couple of packs into the cupboard and get started with recipe experimentation through either the internet or just apply to soups and stews or mix with rice for anti-aging recipes you’ll go back to time and again.
Wild Blueberries are nature’s way of saying anti-aging is yummy and tasty to pursue. These berries thrive in the glacial soils of the North Atlantic Americas, but can now be found all over the world grown in farms that used the wild berry seeds to harvest the natural goodness.

Evergreen dwarf shrubs and vines produce the cranberry that is packed with the polyphenol antioxidants and phytochemicals, which work to keep the vascular system young and healthy looking, for the skin to operate with. One Massachusetts’s Biochemist Yuegang Zuo claims that Cranberries have the highest “radical scavenging” ability among fruits, which sounds a bit complicated to us, but surely is proven to inhibit the growth of common pathogens.
One of the least known super foods, artichokes are one of the richest sources of antioxidants known to man in vegetable form. They contain high levels of phytonutrients which we sometimes call ‘fight-o-nutrients’ to make it easy to remember how good they are for the human body, and how forceful they work at anti-aging and other nutritious body battles. It’s the polyphenol type antioxidants that come fully loaded in artichokes and these include:
Quercetin – Also an anti-carcinogen to fight against cancer
Rutin – Sounds like ‘rooting for you’ and it really is by helping cardiovascular health
Gallic Acid – Also found in black tea and red wine these are found to prevent prostate cancer cells growing.
