A Healthy Diet: Foods To Reverse Aging


Aging may be upsetting for many people because of the wrinkles, saggy skin, slower movement, joint pains, memory gap and a host of other things. But, there are a number of things you can do to improve how you age later in life.  Making better lifestyle choices, including engaging in more physical activities, breaking your smoking habit, getting more sleep and sticking to just one or two cups of alcohol.  One of the best places to start is in giving your diet a revamp and a major makeover.

The Best Anti-Aging Nutrients For Your Diet

Below are the 10 nutrients you should prioritize in your anti-aging diet.  Get these in and in the right amounts and not only will you be shedding pounds but you will also get great looking skin: 
  1. Fiber. Eat more fresh produce.  Make sure that your diet is comprised mostly of vegetable, fruits and whole grains.  Refrain from eating white rice and white bread which can easily make your sugar spike. Too much sugar in your body can loosen up your skin and make it break.  Other than keeping your skin healthy, fiber also keeps your digestive tract, excretory system and circulatory system functioning optimally.
  1. Omega-3 fatty acids. Even the World Health Organization recommends that you get a small amount of fat into your diet too.  Fatty fish such as salmon, tuna and sardines contain high levels of healthy cholesterol, as well as almonds and walnuts.  Incorporate moderate amounts of these foods into your diet.
  1. Antioxidants. Your richest sources of these free-radical fighting nutrients are your berries, citrus fruits, and fresh vegetables.  Antioxidants are good in your anti-wrinkle cream too.
  1. Calcium. Give yourself a better chance at fighting bone loss and osteoporosis.  Include yogurt, the better dairy, in your diet.  It is not only rich in calcium but also contains lactobacilli which promotes healthier digestion, particularly important among older people with slower metabolism.
  1. Phytoceramides. Brown rice, beets and wheat germ contain high levels of phytoceramides.  These nutrients can be utilized by the body to make up for lower levels of ceramides produced by the skin.  Ceramides serve to rebuild and restructure the outer layer of the skin to protect it and keep moisture locked within.
  1. Niacinamide. Also known as Vitamin B3, this can be derived in high amounts from animal internal organs like liver and kidneys.  Bran and tuna are also good sources.  This nutrient enhances blood circulation and helps keep your veins healthy.
  1. Vitamin C. This vitamin does more than just improve your immune response, it also powers up your cells to set off more efficient processes that support skin repair and regeneration.  Get this from citrus fruits.
  1. Vitamin E. This vitamin not only keeps your skin nourished but it has also been found to have strong anti-inflammatory properties that protect your organs from damage and deterioration.  It aids in protecting your eyes from macular degeneration and even promotes a healthy heart.  Get high levels of this good vitamin from almonds and walnuts.
  1. Amino acids. The building blocks of protein, amino acids support optimal cell repair and renewal functions.  Derive high levels of these body builders from eggs, meat products, soy and seeds.
  1. Potassium. Maintain proper body coordination by ensuring you get enough potassium in your diet.  Load up on poultry, potatoes, and beans.  These foods help regulate sodium in your blood as well as prevents water retention.

Enhance Your Diet 

Revamp your lifestyle even more to enhance the effects of your anti-aging diet.  You should also:
  1. Live a more active lifestyle. Get these nutrients where they need to be by improving your blood circulation through exercise.
  1. Get enough sleep. If you want to keep your cells healthy, you must try harder to go to bed on time.
  1. Tackle your bad habits once and for all. If you still smoke, it’s time to quit.  It’s also time to reduce your alcohol intake.
  1. Take on a more optimistic outlook in life.
  1. Spend more time having a good time. Have a good laugh with your significant other and keep showing people you love that you love them. 
Aging should be welcomed with open arms — if only for the fact that there’s no turning back and that, and you get to experience more to life as a mature adult. Isn’t that more fun than when you were a teen?
