Was the Curious Case of Benjamin Button really curious or did he just have a baller nutritionist?
Getting older is inevitable, but the food you eat plays a huge role in how quickly you age. If you eat foods rich in vitamins and antioxidants you can actually slow the aging process.
We can’t promise to turn you into a 20-year-old Brad Pitt, but we can try. Here’s a list of things to add to your diet to keep you forever young.
The wicked stepmother in Hillary Duff’s A Cinderella Story was onto something with her salmon obsession. If you add salmon to your diet a couple of nights per week, you’ll notice your skin starts to glow.
The omega-3 fatty acids in salmon are incredible for your complexion. Omega-3’s help calm inflammation that can lead to acne and breakouts. Eating more salmon can also shrink your waistline as it’s packed with potassium which helps reduce bloating.
Yes, we are asking you to take beauty advice from Popeye. The dude basically looks like an animated Benjamin Button and he was totally spot-on with the spinach thing.
Spinach contains zeaxanthin and lutein which help protect your skin and eyes from harmful UV rays. The sun is your number one enemy when it comes to maintaining youthful skin, so any foods that help shield you from its harmful rays are worth eating.
Spinach also has Vitamin K which can improve bone density and keep you safe from fractures.
Augustus Gloop might have been a “big greedy nincompoop” like the Oompa Loompas said but did you see his skin? So youthful! It helps a little that he was like 12 but maybe the real secret was in the chocolate?
Dark chocolate contains more antioxidants than any other food. Consuming dark chocolate can help increase circulation to the skin which reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
Eating dark chocolate also helps curb oxidative stress and inflammation in the brain, which can help improve memory and reduce stress levels. Dark chocolate has serotonin which can help relax you and help you sleep at night.
This is no excuse to binge-eat Reese's peanut butter cups while watching Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Chocolate should be above 70% cacao to achieve the anti-aging benefits.
The secret to Queen Clarisee looking incredible while ruling Genovia all those years? Green tea.
Green tea is one of the healthiest things you can drink. It helps lower your bad cholesterol, decreases your risk of cancer, and protects your brain from aging.
Green tea also increases fat burning and can speed up your metabolism by 5%!

Avocado toast might be the reason millennials will never have a house of their own, but it’s also a key ingredient to staying young.
This guacamole maker is packed with essential vitamins and fats that help keep your hair, skin, and nails healthy. It has high levels of vitamin B and E that protect your hair from dryness and soothe scalp damage.
Avocados also contain more potassium than bananas, and that potassium helps reduce blood pressure.
