Aging is something that comes with time but you can slow down the process with the right diet and adopting a healthy lifestyle.Aging can be caused by stress, environmental factors, poor diet, smoking, and much more. Antioxidants help slow down the aging process by reducing the effects of oxidative stress, so it is key to include antioxidant-rich foods in our diet.

This drink is packed with foods rich in antioxidants and anti-aging properties.

Aloe vera: 
This plant has potent anti-inflammatory and healing properties and has been used often to relieve arthritis pains and heal wounds.

Drinking aloe vera juice may also help relieve inflammation from the inside out.

Apples:
Like many fruits and vegetables, apples contain compounds called polyphenols. These compounds work as antioxidants, protecting the cells from the effects of oxidative stress.

Avocados:
They are super foods, containing essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and amino acids. They are known to increase the absorption of important nutrients such as beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, and lutein. The D-manno-heptulose sugar found in avocados helps improve the production of collagen, which is crucial to keeping the skin healthy and young.

Chia seeds:
The omega-3 and omega-6 content in chia seeds helps reduce inflammation. They are also an excellent source of anti-aging antioxidants.

Ginger:
This amazing root contains unique compounds called gingerols, which are very powerful anti-inflammatory agents. Because of ginger’s anti-inflammatory properties, it may help slow down aging.

Kale:
It is an excellent source of two powerful antioxidants called carotenoids and flavonoids. These antioxidants protect our bodies from harmful oxidative stress.  They also contain important flavonoids like kaempferol and quercitin, which it thought to kill certain types of cancer cells. Kale is also a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, which have anti-inflammatory effects and can help reduce signs of aging.

Turmeric:
Ciruminoids, which are compounds in turmeric, have extremely strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties
