Anti Aging Foods

Each day as we age, millions of body cells die and most are replaced. Good nutrition is essential to rejuvenating the body and providing the right building blocks to generate new, healthy cells. A healthy diet, rich in nutrients including some recommended anti-aging foods can also help protect cells that are not easily regenerated such as bone and brain tissue.
To start with you should watch your total calorie intake. Being overweight can contribute to a number of age related health issues including diabetes, heart disease and osteoarthritis. Refined sugar and saturated fat should also be limited as they can contribute to cardiac disease such as atherosclerosis and contributes to cardiac arrest and stroke.
  • Specific foods, rich in particular nutrients have been shown to retard the aging process and aid in rejuvenation.

Oily fish such as salmon and tuna are known sources of omega 3 fatty acids which have been shown to be beneficial in aiding persons with both cardiac disease and cognitive issues such as Alzheimer’s disease.
Dark berries and red wine are rich in antioxidants which are known to eliminate free radicals which are a major contributor to cell damage and death.
Leafy green vegetables are loaded with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber, the darker green the vegetable, the better.
Nuts are known to be high in minerals and proteins often deficient in the diet of an aging person. They are rich in calcium, potassium and magnesium which are essential to the proper functioning of cardiac and nervous systems.
Whole grains are a good source of fiber and complex carbohydrate which will help control blood sugar and regulate the digestive system.
  • Proper hydration is also essential so plenty of water should be consumed daily. Finally, of course you should also get plenty of rest, reduce your stress level whenever possible and exercise according to your level of ability. Following these anti-aging food guidelines will help keep your body and mind healthy as you age and can contribute to a longer, happier life.
