       What can we buy at the grocery store that  help us stay young?  Actually a lot of stuff now in the market offering rich in antioxidants.   "Antioxidants are substances or nutrients in our foods which can prevent or slow the oxidative damage to our body. When our body cells use oxygen, they naturally produce free radicals  which can cause damage".  Antioxidants act as "free radical scavengers" and  prevent and repair damage done by these free radicals.  We have to pick some sort of foods that are rich in antioxidant like Garlic, Broccoli, Tea and Coffee, Carrots, Squash, Sweet Potatoes, Citrus Fruits, and Green Leafy Vegetables;  And avoid processed foods because they produce free radicals in our body and destroy our cells.  Antioxidants also enhance immune defense and lower the risk of cancer and infection. 
Citrus Fruits
I can assure you that eating the right kind of food will not only stay us young, but healthier.  What we eat will affect on how we look  the more healthy food we take the more we look younger and healthy.

Be Beautiful!
