Help is here if you want to keep away wrinkles and grey hair and stay younger looking. New research says that eating broccoli, avocado and other fruit and vegetables can delay aging. They have a compound called NMN, which helps slow down the aging process and can refresh the metabolism. It also helps restore levels of energy production in our body that weaken as we age. NMN also helps to slow weight gain and the worsening of our eyes.

Professor Shinichiro Imai from the Washington University School of Medicine said: "We have shown a way to slow the…decline that we see in aging mice. This means older mice have metabolism and energy levels resembling…younger mice." He said NMN reduced the usual signs of aging, like weaker muscles, poor liver function, lower bone density and poorer eyesight. The reason our metabolism changes over time has puzzled scientists for decades.
