I have to start this post off by letting you know I love, love, love, love Dr. Oz! I think he is the best out of what I call Oprah's "Dream Team" (Dr. Phil, Suze Orman, Dr. Oz). This past Wednesday, while trying to stay clear of all the treacherous ice left from our wonderful (of course I'm being sarcastic)) ice storm, I saw one of his shows on anti-aging procedures and foods. You know when he got to the segment where he lists 5 foods or produce items that help our bodies keep reproducing healthy cells and tissue I had to share it with you. Hmmmmm!...... maybe I should incorporate these ingredients into one of my "Double Duty Beauty" videos......What do you think?
Check out the video to learn more about these age defying ingredients!
