Best Power Foods for Anti-Aging
Did you know, grocery stores all around us are filled with plenty of power foods for anti-aging, but often we overlook them because we just don’t know!
Nothing will ever make you look 16 again (sigh)… Eat the right foods and you can boast an unbelievably young and glowing appearance. Eating anti-aging foods will allow your skin to look soft and supple and build a strong immune system.
You need to eat foods that are rich in antioxidants to block the unstable compounds our bodies produce. These compounds destroy collagen and healthy skin, making you look and feel older.
Here is a list of 6 super anti aging foods that will help you stay young and healthy.
Anti-Aging Food 1: Apples. There are only sixty calories in a medium-sized apple and no fat. Each apple contains 2.7 grams of fiber, antioxidants, Vitamins C, E and A, phosphorous, magnesium and potassium. Apples are the perfect diet supplement to keep your skin healthy and glowing, providing your body with many helpful nutrients in the process.
Anti-Aging Food 2: Berries. Blackberries, blackcurrants, blueberries and black grapes consist of phytochemicals called flavonoids. Flavonoids are powerful antioxidants that protect your body from the damage caused by aging and free radicals. Your skin will show clear benefits from these healthy fruits.
Anti-Aging Food 3: Chocolate. In particular, dark chocolate is very good for the heart but look for around 60% the higher the better. Cocoa beans that contain flavanol help to relax blood vessels and will reduce the risk of cholesterol and other heart-related diseases. Dark chocolate is an antioxidant and produces more than 300 chemicals including stimulants. Some chemicals found in chocolate even help in reducing pain.
Anti-Aging Food 4: Eggs or Hemp Seeds. Chock-full of nutrients, a single egg contains 6 grams of protein, 80 calories, Vitamins B12, D and A, and iron. Look for omega organic eggs (free range) for the best results. The fat found in eggs is not saturated fat and will not negatively affect your health when eaten in moderation. Don’t eat eggs, try hemp seeds full of vitamins and protein.
Anti-Aging Food 5: Garlic. This power food helps to prevent cancer and reduces cholesterol. It helps slow the aging process without any damaging side effects. Consuming garlic in a raw or cooked form will also help prevent heart disease.
Anti-Aging Food 6: Nuts. Brazil nuts and walnuts are well-suited to assist in anti-aging. They are rich in zinc, iron, potassium, copper, magnesium and selenium which help to control your cholesterol level and rid you of damaging radicals.
You can also try watermelon, ginger, avocado, green tea, tomatoes, yogurt, cranberries, acai berries and more. These power foods will help you delay the signs of aging, keep you healthy and help you to look beautiful.
