When it comes to anti-aging, many people focus their efforts on fancy eye creams, wrinkle-fighting serums, and even plastic surgery. While these things can definitely help, there is a more natural approach you can take with turning back the hands of time: You can eat your way to more youthful skin. Foods rich in vitamins and minerals can help reverse the signs of aging.
The foods that can keep you young in old age are whole grains, fruits and vegetables.
Whole grains are made from the whole grain of a plant. They're rich in fiber and nutrients such as magnesium, potassium and iron. Whole grains are good for your heart health and they help keep your digestive system healthy.
Fruits and vegetables are a great source of vitamins and minerals. You should eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables every day to stay healthy later in life. Good choices include oranges, apples, pears, bananas, broccoli and spinach.
A balanced diet is important for good health at any age. But it's especially important if you're getting older because you need more vitamins, minerals and energy from food to make sure your body works properly.
Try to eat at least two servings of fruits and vegetables daily. Fruits are packed with vitamins and minerals that help keep you looking young. Vegetables are an excellent source of fiber, which helps keep your digestive system regular. They also contain antioxidants that can neutralise free radicals that cause premature aging and cell damage.
Don't forget about beans, nuts and seeds! Beans are high in protein, which can help build muscle over time. Nuts and seeds are high in omega-3 fatty acids, which help reduce inflammation and protect against heart disease.
Make sure you get some fish into your diet every week. Fish is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which help reduce inflammation in the body as well as lower blood pressure.
