We have an aging population – but who wants to get old!
The “anti-aging” market is expanding every day as people look for ways to turn back the clock, or at least slow the clock down a little. There are more and more products on the market that promise youth in a bottle, however, all the experts agree that how well you age depends on your genes, your lifestyle, diet, and habits (like getting good sleep and minimising stress).
Managing your lifestyle is not always easy, however, it is your choice! At the very least you can cut down on foods that are known to accelerate aging and eat more of the foods that have “anti-aging” benefits.
So here is a list of four really “good for you” foods that have been shown to contribute positively to healthy aging.
Nuts have been used as a source of nutrition since the start of time, since they are a rich source of good fats and protein. But people misunderstand their value because they are high in calories and therefore often exclude them from their diet. However the benefits will outweigh the calories – prepare a just a handful of nuts for a day and don’t eat too many. Interestingly, recent studies around the “Mediterranean Diet” have shown that ADDING nuts can help you to lose weight!
Who doesn’t love berries? Too bad if you don’t like them, because these fruits come with many benefits including their well-known anti-aging properties. They contain massive amounts of micro-nutrients (like folate, magnesium, calcium, vitamin C, and phytonutrients and more) and are often referred to as “super foods” because that. People who want to stay young would do well including berries in their regular diet as well as for “detox” drinks.
Foods like these, that are high in antioxidants, really help to keep you on the go all the time fighting free radicals – the nasties that speed up aging and many lifestyle type dis-eases.
This nutty and earthy fruit has is a great one for keeping you healthy as you age. It consists of oleic acid, which is great in reducing bad cholesterol. It also contains antioxidants and vitamin E. It is a very tasty addition to any meal and one for the “healthy aging” nutritional toolbox.
Pomegranates are very high in antioxidants and they have a reputation for creating healthy, glowing skin. Like many red fruits they are cleansing and detoxifying. Pomegranates are easy to eat when they are juiced. Add them to a smoothie, throw the fresh seeds into a salad, or enjoy in a superfood mix.
