Women have been looking for the fountain of youth, or at the very least a way to age gracefully, for ages. The answer may be found in the foods that you eat.
Going the natural route towards aging beautifully and using fruits and vegetables that contain essential blends will keep us healthy and younger looking.
The following are foods that help you fight the effects of old age.
Berries are excellent little bursts of antioxidants. Antioxidants are molecules that stop the effects of oxidation, in other words, they stop the decay of your skin.
Eat whole grains such as whole wheat pastas and brown rice because they contain fiber which helps lower your cholesterol and has shown to help people slim down.
Eat more garlic as well as cruciferous vegetables, like cauliflower, because both have been shown to fight cancer and heart disease. Nuts are great for your skin and your digestive system.
On top of all this, remember to keep hydrated and drink water and herbal teas. This helps to keep your skin supple as well as releasing toxins from your body. Drink water often, not just when you are thirsty.
Also, decrease your salt and sugar intake, it will help you feel lighter and may help you lose weight. One last piece of advice for keeping your body young is to take vitamins.
As you get older your body may not absorb vitamins from the foods you eat very well, so by taking a multivitamin you help balance your metabolism and you give your body what it needs to function at its best.
