If you're worried about signs of ageing it's a good idea to generally avoid too much fructose (limit yourself to 2 pieces of fruit each day), low fat products and grains. Too many grains, such as rice and quinoa, can be harmful as they contain phytates, which bind on to essential nutrients such as zinc and manganese and prevent their absorption. These nutrients are needed to produce powerful antioxidants. 

Ingredient Benefit
Cashews, sesame & sunflower seeds contain copper, which help produce a really powerful antioxidant called Superoxide Dismutase (SOD).
Oats & pumpkin seeds contain zinc, which also helps to produce SOD.
Spinach contains manganese, which again helps produce SOD.
Brazil nuts contain selenium, which is needed to produce glutathione peroxidase (GPx) another really important and powerful antioxidant needed in the body.
Citrus fruits contain antioxidants needed to eradicate free radicals. Free radicals speed up the ageing process. Antioxidants help quench those free radicals, thus slowing the ageing process.
Avocado contains powerful antioxidants like vitamin E.
Coconut water contains bioactive enzymes that aid digestion, is full of potassium and is also good for a bit of extra flavour.
