5 Foods That Fight Aging

This is an interesting read and I do believe these foods are good, for the one thing coffee is a powerful antioxidant .but like everything in live the key is moderation!

These natural remedies help your skin and teeth defy time. And they may be in your diet already! Here's what they are and how they fight aging.
1) Oatmeal
Non-processed (read: not instant) versions of this breakfast favorite are packed with amino acids and vitamin E, which nourish your skin, combat sun damage and counteract aging free radicals.
2) Coffee
Caffeine helps constrict and stimulate blood vessels to give skin a more even appearance. So savor that cup o' joe—or take a few sips right before you want to look your absolute best.
3) Mozarella Cheese
Brighter-looking teeth can take years off your face. Foods high in calcium, like mozzarella (even lowfat options), protect and strengthen the enamel of your teeth. They also increase the production of saliva, which helps fight off yellowing bacteria.
4) Grapefuit
The vitamin C packed in this nutritious citrus fruit promotes collagen growth, which helps prevent sagging skin.
5) Walnuts
This nut is high in omega-3 fatty acids that increase the moisture levels in your skin and help plump up wrinkles. Toss a few into your salad to reap the benefits.
