Top 10 Anti-aging Foods

 

Apples

There’s really no better doctor than Mother Nature herself when it comes to combating aging. Almost every day, there is a new study or report that proves just how powerful natural foods can be in terms of curing disease, improving your overall health and helping you stay fit and healthy for longer.

While wrinkly or saggy skin might be your primary concern when it comes to aging, there are many other health complaints associated with age that can be prevented or improved by simply choosing to eat the right foods.

These amazing foods have anti-aging properties that you should know about:

Apples

There are certain foods that you can eat to keep your mind sharp as you get older. According to studies by Cornell University, apples contain certain compounds that protect your brain from neurodegenerative damage, which can lead to diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

Avocados

Another food that is associated with improved brain health – avocados are high in monounsaturated fats which lower blood pressure, increase blood flow and prevent insulin resistance. By improving these health markers, avocados also reduce your risk of cognitive decline, as reported by Natural News. Avocados also have anti-inflammatory properties that help combat Alzheimer’s.

As well as keeping your brain sharp, avocados are high in vitamin E, vitamin B and potassium, which are all vital if you want healthy, hydrated skin.

Watermelon

According to the Olena Network blog, watermelon is the ultimate anti-aging fruit because it is extremely hydrating and contains important electrolytes, minerals, antioxidants and vitamins. All of these factors help keep your skin moisturized and reduce the formation of wrinkles.

Red wine – believe it or not

Red wine is full of flavonoids which have been found to reduce your risk of age-related diseases and have amazing antioxidant properties, according to Wellness Resources. These flavonoids help your neurons keep and recall memories and improve your brain’s recovery from exposure to toxins and aging.

Kale

By now you’ve probably heard of kale – the hottest new superfood in the US. Kale is full of omega-3 fatty acids, making it extremely good for your brain, as 60% of that crucial organ is made up of fat. Healthy fats such as those found in kale help prevent cognitive decline and improve your mental longevity, reversing cell shrinkage and cell death.

Berries

Blueberries are another super food that has fantastic health benefits, including those all-important antioxidants and flavonoids that improve both short and long term memory. Meanwhile, blackberries, strawberries and other berries have also been found to have beneficial effects on the brain. Berries protect brain cells from damage and reduce inflammation. They are also full of vitamins such as vitamin C, which helps the collagen in your skin stay elastic, according to the Olena Network.

Pomegranate

This tasty fruit helps your skin stay healthy by boosting your collagen production, keeping your skin firm and wrinkle-free. Pomegranate also contains vitamins and minerals that improve your cellular health.

Tomatoes

Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, which protects your skin from damage caused by free radicals. Lycopene also keeps your skin firm, as it reduces the activity of the enzymes that break down collagen. According to Top10GrocerySecrets.com, lycopene protects your brain from free radicals which cause inflammation and lead to diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

Spinach

It might not be your favorite food, but spinach is a great source of vitamin C, fiber, minerals – such as calcium and iron – and vitamin E, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles by making them shallower and less defined, as reported by the Olena Network.

Cinnamon

Tasty and commonly found on spice racks, cinnamon is also full of antioxidants – giving it anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, according to Top10GrocerySecrets.com. Cinnamon protects your brain from free radicals, repairs damaged tissue and helps your body fight infections.

All of these foods should be included in your weekly shop if you want to reduce your likelihood of developing degenerative brain diseases and increase your longevity.
