For that matter, clogged arteries and weak immune systems may be aging your body quicker than you would like. While there may not be a miracle anti-aging serum to keep you looking young forever, there are some vitamins that promote youthful skin and help in your anti-aging efforts.
- Vitamin C: Vitamin C’s anti-oxidants can protect against cancer causing (and skin ruining) free radicals. It can also help ease muscle pain and ward off the common cold.
- Vitamin E: Vitamin E protects against cancer while protecting your heart and boosting your immune system. Vitamin E can also help reduce muscle pain and weakness. Some people choose to break open vitamin E oil capsules and use it as a topical wrinkle treatment.
