2. Acai Berries
While it’s just about breaking through now, the acai (pronounced “AH-sigh-EE”), is a small fruit from South American rainforests. With twice the amount of anti-oxidants as blueberries, the acai berry is a great way to boost your health. It also has a strong anti-aging effect due to the high levels of anthocyanins and antioxidant vitamin content the fruit contains.

White tea actually has more anti-oxidants than green tea, even though it comes from the same plant. White tea is produced from an immature plant bud that hasn’t dried at all, while green tea is produced from leaves that are very dried out. White tea is also steamed, as opposed to steeped. Try drinking about three or four cups of white or green tea daily.
