Superfoods are like the “It Bag” of the nutrition world. As soon as one is deemed “in,” it’s no sooner declared “out” and replaced with an even better source of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. “What you eat is a very important part of overall health, and superfoods are a wonderful source of antioxidants that protect our cells from damage that impairs their function,” explains Beverly Hills dermatologist, Zein Obagi, MD.

An extremely potent antioxidant derived from grapes, blueberries and even cocoa, resveratrol was catapulted into the spotlight in 2006 when a National Institutes of Health study found that it improved the health of overweight aged mice. Further research concluded that resveratrol can extend the lifespan of fish, flies and worms, and this unique quality immediately caught the attention of skincare scientists who have since started incorporating it into creams and serums in the hopes that it has an anti-aging effect on the skin as well.
