For quite some time, the main players in the anti-inflammatory arena have been the same few: salmon, pomegranate and green tea. But a new superfood has debuted, and some say it may be as powerful as, if not more than, the top avengers.

Known as lucama, this anti-aging superstar is a South American fruit that possess would-be healing abilities and skin-repairing effects. Commonly used as flavoring in Latin dishes and sweets, the oil of the fruit can be extracted and used topically to regenerate tissues and help re-grow cells, while also fighting the effects of inflammation.

While lucama is still hard to find on U.S. shelves, some specialty stores are incorporating it into juices, smoothies and chocolate.
