Dr. Heidi Regenass is a plastic surgeon in Glendale Arizona. She encourages people to eat well in order to maintain a youthful and healthy appearance. There are some specific superfoods which are very helpful in reducing the symptoms of premature aging.
She's written a cookbook for people interested in anti-aging foods; Anti-Aging Cookbook. We wrote to ask her about the five main superfoods she would recommend, to tell us a bit about her recipes and to let us know if the book is available at Amazon. Here's a reply from Dr. Heidi;
Thank you for your e-mail. Regarding the specific questions you posed, here are my responses:
The five key superfoods I recommend are (1) walnuts (2) pomegranate (3) wild salmon (4) tomatoes (5) leafy green vegetables. As an extra, not green tea, but rooibos tea, which is native only to a specific region in South Africa, and is higher in antioxidants than both green and white tea. And unlike green or white tea, rooibos (red bush tea) is naturally caffeine free, so one can drink it day and night. I love to embrace my southern African heritage and I grew up on the tea!
