7 anti-aging foods to have in your pantry
There are way more than just 7 ani-aging foods, but here are 7 of our favorites ones we believe are a good place to start to bring maximum benefits!
Starting this list of 7 anti-aging foods, we have the good old almond.
When it comes to nutrition, almonds deliver 6 grams of plant protein, 4g of fiber, magnesium, manganese, vitamin D & vitamin E among other essential anti-aging nutrition.
These macro & micronutrients found in almonds assist with helping repair skin tissue, retain skin moisture, and protect skin from damaging UV rays. Other benefits may include:
- strengthen skin cell membranes
- protect against sun damage
- give skin a beautiful glow by preserving its natural oil barrier
Almonds make an amazing dairy alternative with zero hormone compromise, unlike actual dairy products, which is vital for beautiful natural anti-aging.
What’s great about this one is that it is so accessible to all and it is easy & versatile to use in many different ways.
With an INCREDIBLE combination of soluble and insoluble fiber, the food feeds the gut bacteria which play a PIVOTAL role in the anti-aging process.
Feeding the gut bacteria with the right nutrition, like that found in oats, slows the anti-aging process down!
An additional bonus is that it helps reduce cholesterol levels & improve heart health! Because let’s not forget, aging is not just skin level, it’s on an organ level as well! Anti-aging foods benefit both the skin AND organs….all part of looking and feeling GOOD!
3. HEMP SEEDS*
The King and Queen of all superfoods, hemp hearts contain an unprecedented ratio of macro & micronutrition including ALL 21 amino acids INCLUDING the 9 essential amino acids.
On top of that, hemp hearts are powerful anti-inflammatory foods, which help protect & defend the body against free radicals & damage.
PLUS with vital soluble & insoluble fiber for optimal gut health (as mentioned above) AND a perfect balance of Omega fatty acids……this is an anti-aging food like no other.
4. ACAI BERRIES*
Acai berries come from the fruit of the palm tree. Potent in antioxidants and rich in a substance called Anthocyanins
Anthocyanins are a type of pigment found in plants that are thought to offer health benefits. They belong to a class of compounds called flavonoids that have antioxidant effects. This means that they fight unstable molecules, called free radicals, that damage cells and increase the risk of certain diseases.
Anthocyanins possess antidiabetic, anticancer, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and anti-obesity effects, as well as prevention of cardiovascular diseases (over and above their potent anti-aging benefits.
5. CHIA SEEDS*
Like with Hemps seeds, chia seeds have incredible Omega 3,6, & 9 ratios which are potent anti-inflammatory & cell regenerative components.
And following with the anti-aging foods theme, they are high in soluble and insoluble fiber as well as plant protein, containing the essential amino acids the body needs to regenerate cells.
A little bit of a controversial product as it comes from one of the most precious & biodiverse species on the planter, the honey bee, raw honey holds anti-aging properties that won’t be found anywhere else.
Before we continue, we have to insist that we only support local, biodiverse & ecological & ethical bee farmers.
Bees are the epitome of keeping the ecosystem turning and our food source growing and on top of that, they provide nutrition that can be found nowhere else.
Let’s be clear, the honey we are speaking of is the pure, raw unheated, non-processed kind……NOT the kind that gets sold on the shelves of the majority of commercial outlets.
Propolis and natural antioxidants & anti-microbial components found in honey are so uniquely structured and created that they are in a class of their own.
Honey is also a consumable (like with many superfoods) that don’t need to be consumed in huge volumes to benefit from its power.
A jar of locally bought honey from your local bee farmer is perfect to give your body all it needs to assist with the anti-aging process.
7. MORINGA POWDER*
Also known as the “miracle plant” due to its abnormal amount of nutrition contained within its cell structure.
Check this out!
Per 100g measurements (this is powdered leaf comparison), there is….
more than 8x the amount of iron in moringa than in beef per 100g

160x more B12 in moringa than in chicken per 100g
