7 Foods that Fight Aging

5. Hijiki
Sushi lovers should be sure to add a hijiki appetizer to their next order. The black sea vegetable is rich in iodine, which increases the synthesis of the thyroid hormone, thyroxine, to boost the metabolism. Also, 40 percent of hijiki is fiber, which helps regulate hormones and enhances liver detoxification.

 Hijiki has a pasta-like texture, making it an ideal substitute when following a gluten-restricted diet. Simply soak the hijiki in water for 20 minutes, and then boil it for 10 minutes, just like pasta. Add hijiki to organic mixed greens tossed with spicy pumpkin seeds, avocado, and hemp seeds. Or, you know, just order takeout.
