These six drinks fight aging. See what they are and when to down them.
When to Drink: At the Alarm
Hydrating will help beat that groggy feeling and make your skin look its glowy best (both now and later in life).
When to Drink: At Breakfast
Coffee may help your heart and (if you take it black) metabolism, and it reduces risk for some types of cancer, studies show.
When to Drink: At Lunch
Sip tea. Green kick-starts metabolism and can help fend off breast cancer. Black may lower blood pressure.
When to Drink: P.M. Snack
Hot cocoa (have it over ice if you can’t take the heat) has more antioxidants than does coffee, red wine or green tea. Great for your heart and skin.
When to Drink: At dinner
Enjoy a glass of red wine: Piceatannol, a compound your body makes when you drink vino, could stunt fat-cell growth (woot!).
When to Drink: Before Bed
Grab milk-your skeleton will love the calcium, and your muscles will love the protein. You’ll wake up even stronger.
