Super Foods that keep you healthy & beautiful inside out! Can an apple a day really keep the doctor away? Researchers from Cornell University have found that an apple contains powerful cancer-fighting and preventing chemicals. An apple a day isn't the only food that keeps the doctor away, a surprising number of other yummy foods — some of which may surprise you, also do the job well. Concentrate on eating foods that are filled with anti-cancer and anti-ageing nutrients for not only a longer, healthier life, but lasting youth and beauty. 

  • Nuts. Peanuts, almonds, cashews ... small amounts of these or other nuts might reduce your risk of heart disease and cancer. Plus, they're full of the antioxidant vitamin E, artery-unclogging monounsaturated fats and lots of other phytochemicals.
  • Chillies. Capsicums, Chilli peppers ... Surprised? They all contain Capsaicin, the substance that gives their heat, which acts as a disease-preventing phytochemical.
  • Tomatoes and tomato products. The antioxidant lycopene in tomato-rich foods may help prevent prostate cancer and might also help prevent breast cancer. Studies show cooked tomatoes are more effective than raw ones.
  • Berries. All are berry-good for you! Blueberries and raspberries top the berry nutrition charts with their anthocyanins and ellagic acid (the substances that give them their rich colors). Possess potential cancer and heart disease-preventing antioxidant properties. Plus, they're high in fiber and vitamin C.
  • Leafy greens. Folate, a “star” B vitamin, does triple duty. In addition to helping fend off heart disease and possibly even cancer, it's believed to prevent neural tube defects in unborn babies. So go for anything that's leafy and green.
  • Yogurt. There’s calcium that’s good for your bones, but that's not all. Most yogurts contain bacteria that help maintain proper digestive health and may help boost your immune system. Look for the words "live and active cultures" — such as L. acidophilus and Bifidus — on labels.
  • Tea. Whether served iced, hot or decaffeinated, black or green tea may help prevent cancer and heart disease due to the antioxidant effects of the flavonoids and polyphenols they contain. Up your tea intake with some of Gollman's ideas: Make a tea slush with iced tea and pureed fruit, or try jazzing up regular iced tea with frozen mango cubes or slices.
