Dieting Toward Longevity:
Anti-Inflammatory & Anti-Aging Foods
The stereotype most commonly associated with diets is weight loss, and while it’s true that dieting can be a heavy hitter in the weight loss game, there is a trick to add one more benefit into the mix. By introducing anti-inflammatory and anti-aging foods into your diet, you can increase your longevity and keep your good looks even as the years rack up.
While, in some cases, special foods can help slow and prevent aging and inflammation, it really just comes down to eating right. The key is a diet that includes vital antioxidants, particularly Vitamin C, Zinc, Beta-Carotene resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant found in grapes and red wine. Fiber from whole grains and omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil also offer anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties. A diet with increased fiber can help keep your blood vessels in top-notch condition. Fish oil provides a number of anti-aging benefits ranging from cardiovascular protection to a reduced risk of strokes and Alzheimer’s.
A proper diet of fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, and fish is ideal for any sort of health promotion, but it is key in longevity especially, keeping your cardiovascular system in check and retaining the beauty and feel of youthfulness.
