Five anti-aging Superfoods
If beauty comes from the inside, it only stands to reason that what we put into our body is as important as what we put on our body. Getting the proper nutrition, drinking lots of water, and sleeping well have always been important in an anti-aging diet, but now research has shown that there are superfoods packed with nutrients, anti-oxidants, polyphenols, vitamins and minerals, that can keep you feeling your best at any age. Who needs creams and serums to minimize wrinkles, when you can eat your way to better skin?
Here are five superfoods that you should be eating to fight aging and achieve good health:
Blueberries – Blueberries may be one of Mother Nature’s best gifts to us. They have the highest amount of anti-oxidants compared to other fruits, which protects cells from premature aging, improves short term memory loss, and helps with balance and coordination: all problematic issues as we age.
Avocado – Avocados can do way more than make great guacamole; they are a top pick when it comes to anti-aging. Avocados are rich in carotenoid anti-oxidant and Vitamin E, key components in having glowing skin and beautiful hair. The avocado is also full of fat, but it’s the good monounsaturated fat that is heart healthy and helps you absorb other nutrients. The alkalizing components it offers helps to balance the pH levels of your body, which creates internal balance and helps you look younger.
Garlic – Garlic’s claim to fame for generations, besides making food taste delicious, was warding off vampires; today, garlic is a superfood. It is helpful for removing heavy metals of the body, decreasing cholesterol and blood pressure, preventing cancer, and working as an antiviral and antifungal agent. It contains iron, potassium, calcium, and other minerals to help maintain overall good health.
Watermelon – Watermelon is one of the first sure signs of summer, but did you know that it’s chock full of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals? Watermelon is rich in citrulline, which helps in purging the body of dangerous toxins while boosting metabolism and your immune system. Because watermelon is mostly made of water, it helps keep your skin hydrated, and its high amounts of Vitamin C and Vitamin A aid in the prevention of premature skin aging. It’s just as effective when you juice it.
Tomatoes – Tomatoes are a wonderful fruit, even though most of us think of it as a vegetable. The tomato is an anti-aging superpower due to lycopene, an anti-oxidant that defends the skin from damaging free radicals. Lycopene also protects the skin from harmful UV rays, which in turn causes sun spots, wrinkles, and dryness.
