We saved the best for last! Red wine, made with the dark skin and seeds of grapes, is rich in polyphenols, a type of antioxidant that includes resveratrol, and resveratrol, a natural plant compound, has antioxidant and inflammatory properties. Research shows that it can prevent blood clots and inhibit the growth of cancer cells; other studies show it may have a positive impact on longevity. Resveratrol has also been shown to have very powerful cancer-fighting properties and to inhibit lymph, liver, prostate, stomach and breast cancers.
How to use it: One glass of red wine a day should do it! If you don’t drink, opt for grape juice or a resveratrol supplement.
