Five Age-Defying Foods for the 50+ Crowd

Berries are your best anti-aging friends.  They’re rich in antioxidants and a whole host of nutrients that give them scientifically suggested superpowers: maintaining memory sharpness, protecting joints from wear and tear, relieving muscle soreness, preserving eyesight, fighting wrinkles, and even reducing your risk for serious illnesses like cancer and heart disease.  Blackberries are loaded with anthocyanins, an antioxidant that’s known to enhance memory function and prevent problems with word recall – which, you may know, is a BIG perk if you’re over 50 (and can’t find your keys)!  Not to mention, one cup of blackberries provides a whopping 8 grams of fiber, so they’ll keep you feeling full while keeping things moving through your digestive tract.  For a naturally sweet treat, try my simple recipe for a refreshing blackberry smoothie.
