It seems like the older you get, the more intent your body is on making life difficult for you. Joints start aching, weight creeps on more easily, and forgetfulness becomes an all too common occurrence. Doctors are eager to solve your problems with another prescription pill or a boatload of vitamins, but sometimes, the gateway to a healthier mind and body is right in front of your eyes.

The food we eat has a significant impact on how our body functions. So much so, in fact, that certain foods have even been labeled as “super,” showing just how powerful the nutrients they provide really are. This infographic from Fair and Flawless takes a look at twenty of the superheros present in our grocery stores and farmers markets (and yes, chocolate is on the list).

So next time, before running to your local pharmacy to cure your aches and pains, try a handful of blueberries, a salad packed with kale, or a hearty bowl of steelcut oats. Feeling better has never been easier.
