On the 5/15/12 episode of The Dr. Oz Show, Defy Your Age, Dr. Oz challenged his audience to guess the age of his next guest Dr. Rovenia M. Brock, PhD, nutrition coach. Known as Dr. Ro, this doctor figured out the right form of food to take years off her face. How many years?

The average age the audience guessed was 34. Dr. Ro's actual age is 56! Remarkable, says Dr. Oz. Age is from the neck up, says Dr. Ro, and she shared her age-defying secrets with Dr. Oz.

Dr. Oz Defy Your Age: Fountain of Youth Shake
Dr. Ro drinks her Fountain of Youth Shake daily to hydrate the skin, detoxify and prevent premature aging that makes you look older, and provide antioxidants that prevent wrinkles from forming.

1 cup coconut water
2-3 wheatgrass ice cubes
2 handfuls spinach
4 pineapple spears
Half lemon, peeled
1 small green apple
1 tablespoon ginger

On the 4/27/12 episode, Dr. Oz featured several of his favorite kitchen items and on that list was onions. Flavonoids in onions are beneficial to heart health. Dr. Oz recommends eating red onions for their greater nutritional content. When using onions, peel off the paper layer but leave that first fleshy layer right beneath. That layer is the most important part of the onion and should be eaten immediately to get the greatest concentration of flavonoids. Store onions in a cool, dark area of the kitchen or pantry and refrigerate them after cutting.

Drinking celery juice, a natural diuretic, can play a role in removing excess fluid from the body. Celery has also been recommended for heart health, blood pressure support, and as a health water-filled snack.

On the 12/12/11 episode, Dr. Oz talked about brown seaweed and its potent powers to burn belly fat, if you take it in pill form he clarified. Containing fucoxanthin, brown seaweed is supposed to super charge the metabolism.

[Dr. Oz says that this is new, however Garden of Life has been selling a product called FucoTHIN for years which contains fucoxanthin. Brown seaweed is not new, it's new to Dr. Oz.]

Dr. Oz recommends taking 500mg of brown seaweed daily to support losing belly fat, liver fat and support healthy cholesterol levels in the blood.

[ has an article about brown seaweed extract with a caution for people who experience blood clotting issues. Brown seaweed slows the body's ability to clot. Read more here.]

Seaweed has also been recommended for skin care as a facial scrub and for soaking in the tub. On the 10/27/11 episode, Dr. Oz recommended soaking in seaweed once a week. Add four sheets of seaweed to the bath, he explained, to help reduce the appearance of cellulite.
