Is it really possible to turn back the clock and reduce the look of wrinkles without resorting to medical intervention? Some advocates say it is, and the answer may be as close as your supermarket!
It’s well-known that several edibles are considered “anti-aging” foods. It probably won’t surprise you to learn that most of them are all-natural and not adulterated. In other words, your anti-aging diet shouldn’t include regular trips through the drive-thru.
However, you can still tempt your taste buds will delicious foods that fight aging, such as those listed below.
Grab Some Berries
Blueberries are a rich source of antioxidants. A cup of them packs fiber and gives you a boost of energy. Try adding them to salads, yogurts, cereals and more — or just eat them right from your hands!
Believe in Olive Oil
Rich in monounsaturated fat, olive oil has earned its place in history as one of the oldest forms of food known to man. It also helps keep hearts healthier, which leads to a lowered chance of certain medical conditions. The fewer health problems you have, the younger you’ll look and feel.
Better Skin and Hair With Beans
Whether you eat meat or you’re a vegan, you can always enjoy a serving or two of beans. They help fill you up with their fiber and have a nice side effect: they keep your skin and hair glowing. Focus on adding beans to your daily diet regimen and look for lasting results.
Is Yogurt the Answer?
While the jury’s still out on whether yogurt has a secret ingredient that leads to longevity, it’s certainly a great food choice. Be sure to eat it in its purest form, without any artificial sweeteners or dyes. If you want a sweeter taste, you can always include some honey or fruits. You’ll get plenty of bone-supporting calcium as well as gut-pleasing probiotics.
Eat Like a Rabbit
Ever notice that rabbits have the softest fur imaginable? Perhaps it’s all those carrots! Rich in vitamin A, carrots will soften your scalp and hair, leaving it shinier and fuller-looking.
Omega-3 fatty acids abound in several varieties of fish, including salmon and tuna. Add seafood to your diet on a regular basis and help prevent heart disease caused by artery blockages. Not sure how to prepare seafood in a way that’s healthy? Stop by your local seafood eatery and learn from the best.
Chocolate Is the Answer
Okay, we’re not going to suggest that you devour bar after bar of milk chocolate. But we’re here to say that the antioxidants in dark chocolate are valuable to your body. The key is to eat it in small amounts or melt it to cover other healthy treats, such as strawberries, bananas and kiwi.
Build Up Protein With Cottage Cheese
You need protein to support your muscles, but you’re tired of trying to eat tons of lean meat. Instead, add a bowl of low-fat cottage cheese to your meal plan. As long as it’s a reduced-sodium version, you can feel good about eating up. Lactose intolerant? There are special versions available just for your needs.
Pile Up the Cucumber Slices
Although cucumbers are made up of quite a bit of water content, they still have silica in the cucumber peel. The silica helps your skin resist wrinkles, which is one of the first signs of aging.
Plenty more foods to fight anti-aging are available at your grocery store. You just have to look for them and then adopt them into your lifestyle. Before you know it, you may just swear you found the fountain of youth!
