The adage you are what you eat is true. Many experts in health and nutrition say the fountain of youth can be found in what we eat. Here are the top ten foods that can keep you looking better and living longer.

The doc recommends making sure the bones come from grass-fed meats in order to get the full benefits.

  1. Salmon

Farmed salmon has more healthy fats, while wild-caught salmon is slightly higher in protein.
