Also called natural antioxidants, anti-aging foods help to stay young, to live well and for longer
Young people inside and out. Valid allies arrive at the table. It is possible to preserve one's youth with foods that fight cellular aging. Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of anti-aging foods help to counteract the effects of time on the body. The fight is against free radicals.
They are not strange products. Anti-aging foods are foods that are part of the Mediterranean diet, recognized by UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
Let's start with the fish. To prefer fatty ones such as mackerel or salmon which contain in very high percentages Omega 3, essential fatty acids which, among the many benefits they provide, avoid thrombosis, keep the number of triglycerides constant and, promoting the elasticity of the arterial walls, prevent cardiovascular problems.
In the diet we insert dried fruit. Reevaluate almonds and walnuts for their beneficial properties. They are effective in that they provide the right daily dose of vitamins, Omega 3 and mineral salts. Vitamin E delays the oxidation of the tissues. Instead apples, red fruits such as blueberries, raspberries and pomegranate grains introduce abundant vitamins C and A into the body, also consumed in the form of juices. The nervous and cardiovascular systems are protected by the many antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties present in the apple peel.
Whole grains play a central role in nutrition. Rich in dietary fiber, they regulate intestinal activity, helping to eliminate toxins. On the one hand, they are recommended for those who want to lose weight because they help reduce fat mass, on the other they stimulate growth hormone, HGH.
It is a good habit to season with extra virgin olive oil. Be wary of imitations or cheaper fees. He is the true ally at the table. Raw, to flavor salads, first courses and main courses, this portentous oil is rich in flavonoids and polyphenols that are good for the mind and body.
Good news for gourmands. Dark chocolate is among the anti-aging foods. Even just 30 grams before going to sleep. Chocolate must have at least 70% cocoa. Only in this way the beneficial properties are at their maximum power. Skin, heart, mood will thank.
