The fact is that aging is something that is inevitable, no matter what we do and how hard we try to postpone it, but it is also a fact that until we notice the first signs of aging on our face, we rarely do something in order to preserve our youth, or at least the young look on our face. However, people are usually not aware of the fact that the use of anti-aging creams is not the only way in which we can help our skin remain young and without wrinkles. Besides genetics, about which we cannot do much, our lifestyle, our habits, as well as our nutrition, also play a very important role. And the food is extremely important because if we feed properly, we will easier preserve our health and slow down the process of aging and the signs of it.
Foods that are considered anti-aging
As it has already been said, nutrition is very important, and among the most important elements are antioxidants and healthy monosaturated fats. They have the ability to protect the organism from several serious diseases, among which is even cancer. They also slow down the process of aging, and some of the foods that are well known for their amount of antioxidants are berries, broccoli, avocado, garlic, tomatoes, spinach and green tea.
However, beside the foods that are already familiar as beneficial for anti-aging, there are some relatively new foods that have recently been proven as very helpful in slowing down this unavoidable process. Manogsteen, acai and goji are some of them.Mangosten actually comes from Asia, it has a hard shell, while the inside of it, the pith, is very rich in antioxidants. It can be consumed as a fresh fruit, or juice. Acai berries are native to the rain forests in Brazil, and besides antioxidants, they are extremely rich in Omega fatty acids. What is interesting about it is that one small acai berry has at least 30 times higher amount of antioxidant than the red wine. Goji berries are natives in the Himalayas, and due to the nutrients that this fruit contains, it is more than clear that it deserves particular attention. Goji berries are not expensive and they can be obtained rather easily. The scientists believe that due to the fact that the Himalayas are the closest to the sun, the berries from this region are the healthiest.
