Foods don’t have to be exotic in nature to work a trick! As consumers, you will always have plenty of options.

In fact, the whole foods you need to stop the aging clock are handy at most any store. Some of these may surprise you because most people tend to overlook the obvious. Just like your mom told you years ago, eat more veggies, fruits, and whole grains! Moms really have a lot of practical advice that they can lend to an uncommon, complicated world!

Super Anti Aging Foods that Help Turn Back Time



onions image
  • Onions – For most middle aged women, Valdalia onions were not on the scene when they were growing up. Yellow onions were the onions that mom used most in the kitchen and for good reason. Turns out that the more pungent the onion, the more antioxidant power it has.


  • Shallots also have the most antioxidant activity, followed by Western Yellow, pungent yellow, Northern Red, Mexico, Empire Sweet, Western White, Peruvian Sweet, Texas 1015, Imperial Valley Sweet, and Vidalia. Western Yellow onions have the most flavonoids and eleven times the amount found in Western White, the variety with the lowest flavonoid content. For all varieties of onions, the more phenols and flavonoids they contain, the more antioxidant and anti-cancer protection they provide.

    Onions are part of the Allium family and contain quercitin, a chemical compound believed to have anti-inflammatory, anti-cholesterol, anticancer, and antioxidant properties. There health benefits include lowering blood sugar levels and decreasing total cholesterol levels, while increasing the HDL cholesterol levels at the same time. Consequently, onions are extremely beneficial in the prevention of cancer, heart disease and stroke.

  • Oranges – The same fruit that mom served us for breakfast everyday, is also one of the best for us. Oranges are packed with Vitamin C, fiber, folate, and significant amounts of Vitamin A, B, potassium and calcium.


  • According to studies, oranges help boost immunity, lower cholesterol, reduce free radical damage, and oxidative stress.

    garlic image
  • Garlic – The known health benefits of garlic are extensive. Garlic inhibits cardiac artery calcification and reduces the amounts of free radicals in the blood stream, and helps to reduce plaque deposits in arteries.


  • Because garlic contains anti-inflammatory compounds, it helps to protect against conditions often associated with aging, like arthritis and asthma.

    legumes image
  • Legumes – Beans, beans, good for your heart! Turns out this is true! Legumes are one of the most beneficial anti aging foods there are! They are an excellent source of cholesterol lowering fiber and energy boosting protein and iron.

    No one bean has the advantage over the other ones in providing essential nutrients, so be sure to include a wide variety of them in your diet.


  • Lentils are high in fiber and help to manage blood sugar levels. Black beans are rich in anthocyanidins. Kidney beans are filled with thiamin and work to improve functioning of neurotransmitters essential for memory. Green beans are rich in Vitamin K and essential to bone support. Garbonzo beans provide high amounts of minerals that aid in metabolizing carohydrates, fats and proteins and strengthening tooth enamel.

    Fiber rich legumes play an important role in the prevention of gallstones, increased cardiac health, regulation of blood sugar, lower total cholesterol levels and protection from cancer, especially colon cancer.

    blueberries image
  • Blueberries – One of the most nutritional of all of the anti aging foods, blueberries are a rich source of antioxidants called anthocyanins.


  • Studies suggest that these powerful phytonutrients neutralize free radical damage, enhance the health of all body tissue, protect the cardiovascular system, guard the brain against oxidative stress, and improve brain function including memory.

    soy nuts image
  • Soy – Soy is a member of the legume family but is also one of the best anti aging foods you should include in your diet. Soy isoflavones have a high concentration of molybdenum, a trace mineral that plays a role in three enzyme systems involved in metabolizing carbohydrates, fats, proteins, and tryptophan, an amino acid essential for growth and normal metabolism.


  • Soy also contains iron, fiber, phosphorus, omega 3 fatty acids, magnesium, copper, vitamin B12, and potassium. Soy also helps keep estrogen levels in check, so if you aren't using HRT, include Soy Isoflavone supplements regularly, along with your antioxidants. Just be sure to choose non-GMO soy when you shop!

    tomato image
  • Tomatoes – When I was growing up, we used to eat tomatoes right off the vine. How different a world that we live in today! Tomatoes are packed with healthy vitamins and trace minerals that are essential to good health.


  • They are also rich in lypocene, which studies from the American Association for Cancer Research have linked to the protection of heart disease and protection against certain cancers. These include colorectal, breast, endometrial, lung and pancreatic types of cancer. Tomatoes are rich in cartenoids, which also protect against cancer and heart disease, but also improve night vision and regulation of blood sugars.

    collard greens image
  • Leafy Greens – Calorie for calorie, greens are among the most nutrient packed anti aging foods you can eat. Spinach, kale, arugula, Swiss chard, cabbage, collard greens, green leaf lettuce, and watercress are all solid sources of powerful nutrients.


  • Eating a variety of leafy greens has been shown to help improve bone density and night vision, lower blood pressure, boost energy, increase circulation, protect against macular degeneration and prevent a variety of cancers.

    Leafy green veggies are a great source of lutein, which helps keep your skin moisturized and elastic. Four ounces daily is the recommended intake.

    whole grains2 image
  • Whole Grains – Whole grain breads and pastas are much healthier than those made with refined white flour, and improve digestive health.


  • Spelt provides riboflavin, which can help promote healthy skin and good vision. Barley helps with regulating sleep patterns. Millet can reduce the risk of heart attack by lowering blood pressure. Eat a variety of whole grains to help stay healthy.

    shiitake mushrooms image
  • Shiitake Mushrooms – While most of us didn’t grow up eating Shiitake mushrooms, they too should be included as part of the most valuable anti aging foods to consume regularly.


  • If you can't find shiitake mushrooms, substitute them with Portabella mushrooms. You can easily find these in any grocery store.

    They are a good source of iron and lentinan, which is a polysaccharide that help to activate your immune systems tumor fighting T cells. T cells are part of the white blood cells, which protect your body against free radicals and cancer.

    You don’t have to go far to find these power-packed anti aging foods around you. Include a variety of foods in your daily diet to turn on your body’s natural defenses against aging.
