Eat Red, Live Longer

woman-holding-tomatosNutrition gurus say fruits and veggies with big, bold colors may help you stay young. Which ones are best? Go red and you won’t go wrong.

Red cabbage has deep-red (almost purple) pigments containing 36 plant chemicals that researchers say may be useful for guarding against cancer, boosting brain function, and promoting heart health.

Beet juice has a chemical that your body may convert into a compound capable of expanding blood vessels and lowering blood pressure, according to British scientists. Try mixing it into a smoothie.

Tomatoes have lycopene and beta-carotene, antioxidants that can keep your heart young by lowering your cholesterol.
