After much research in the field and from my personal observations from talking to women whose beauty seems to be young and eternal, Ive come to the following conclusion: the whole secret lies in special nutrition. I would rather call it anti-aging nutrition that, surprisingly enough, consists of products that everyone can afford. Below there are top 5 foods that will help you stay young and healthy for many years to come.
Lycopene the thing that makes tomatoes red, is actually one of the major elements that slow aging processes down. Together with other carotenoids which tomatoes are rich in, lycopene acts as a powerful antioxidant. Not only is lycopene an effective age-defying element, it also helps fight cancer. But if you want to prevent wrinkles by adding tomatoes to your daily diet, opt for either tomato juice or fresh tomato sauce, since lycopene is more easily digestible when tomatoes are cooked.
Fish is widely thought to be the richest source of omega-3 fats which are extremely valuable for health. But outside of the numerous benefits fish, especially fatty species, offer, fish stands out among other products with its healing effect on skin, hair and nails. Doctors recommend that a person should eat fish no less than three times a week. For even greater anti-aging effect, try grilled fish or steamed.
An anti-aging diet should contain dark chocolate. According to recent research, even a small bar of good quality chocolate can slow down skin aging processes and bring vivid results after regular but measured consumption. The recommended dose, however, shouldnt exceed 30g a day.
These are an amazingly effective anti-aging product that produce stunning results. Their value lies in the fact that they contain exceptional vitamins and elements such as arginine, fatty acids and antioxidants. Not only will almonds help you look and feel younger, they are also powerful in acting against gaining excess weight and developing heart disease.
Lemon is another highly effective anti-aging remedy that can easily substitute for anti-aging face cream. Rich in vitamin C, antioxidants, flavonoids and a number of other no less useful plant acids, lemon and lemon juice help the body get rid of toxins. Besides lemon has a bleaching effect that works wonders on a freckled skin. The recommended intake doesnt have any limits unless you suffer intolerance of excessive acidity.
Of course, this isnt the full list of products that can keep us young and healthy, but these are foods you can find at any store and afford to buy.
