The market might be laden with so-called miracle skin care and anti-aging creams, but to stop body and brain ageing, all you need are these superfoods!
Most of them are evidence-based foods confirmed to improve wellness and promote longevity. Here’s to living to 100!
Blueberries– and for that matter all berries are the greatest fruit of all. Packed with antioxidant benefits, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries have been touted for shielding you body and brain from free radicals and other ageing factors.
Tomatoes – contain lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that also promotes heart health. The great news is that lycopene is released when tomatoes are heated, so reach for that salsa or heat them up a bit before consuming!
Wine – Resveratrol is a wine compound that has been found to improve longevity and overall health.
Resveratrol in fact, activates a protein in your body that is responsible for counteracting ageing and improving your overall health.
This study and many other before it have confirmed the association of resveratrol consumption and longevity. Cheers!
Still unconvinced? Think about the French Paradox, French people have a fat-rich diet, yet their heart disease rates are much smaller than those of the USA! Why? Because red wine is a staple drink of their diet and culture!
Green Tea – Skip the coffee and energy drinks for some wholesome green tea. Green Tea is rich in polyphenols, natural antioxidants that promote health by reducing your heart disease risk and helping you live longer.
In fact green tea is known to prevent cell ageing including skin cells, reduces the pace of cognitive decline and assists with joint health and arthritis.
