Stay healthy with anti aging food
Visited www.wholeliving.com and found some stuffs about anti aging food. Here are some you may already be taking as part of your daily intake. And they are :-
Tomatoes - It contains lycopene,an anti oxidant that helps maintain youthful skin texture and may reduce some risk of cancer (especially prostate, lung and stomach cancers) and heart disease.
Olive Oil - It is rich in anti oxidants and anti inflammatory monounsaturated fat. Again, it lowers the rate of cardiovascular disease.
Nuts - Varieties such as almonds and walnuts contain a generous helping of healthy fats, vitamins and protein that benefit cardiovascular and brain health. Nuts are also high in compounds that ease inflammation.
Red Grapes - Contains anti oxidants call resvaratrol, it has anti inflammatory and anti coagulant properties, which may explain why red wine and purple grape juice also promote heart health.
Fish - It has Omega 3 in it and helps combat inflammation in the body. It also reduces the risk of Alzheimer's disease and stroke.
Ginger contains anti inflammatory compounds that reduces the risk of age related conditions such as Alzheimer's disease. Plus anti oxidant substances found in onions and garlic can protect against heart disease and diabetes.
