Top 5 Anti-Ageing Foods
3rd February 2014
Everyone seems to be on the look out for the new must have anti-ageing product. Whether it's a man-made product, a procedure or all natural, people are desperate to stop the affect of time.
If you don't fancy going to a dermatologist to find out about the skin rejuvenation treatments you can have done, then here are our top five foods that will help you achieve this at home:
Fruit has long been recommended when it comes to anti-ageing food. Avocado is by far the best choice as they are full of age-defying minerals and vitamins. They are incredibly high in vitamin B which reduces your risk of age related illnesses like high blood pressure, heart attacks and osteoporosis.
An easy tip to remember is that the darker the berries, the better they are for anti-ageing. For example, blueberries have the potential to improve your memory and decelerate neurological degeneration. Not only that but the vitamin C found in all berries is great for your skin, keeping it fresh and glowing and can even help with skin tightening.
Garlic has been known to lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure, maintain cell health, as well as make dishes extra delicious. It has been used for years as anti-bacterial and anti-viral remedies for illness, and even has scientific evidence to back it up. So good news, the more garlic the better.
Perhaps a lesser known fact about nuts is that they are high in omega-3 fatty acids. This can contribute to a healthy heart, along with the potassium and vitamin E they contain.
5. Red Wine
Red wine contains resveratrol which has numerous health benefits, including the potential to lower cholesterol, prevent blood clots and even reduce the risk of cancer. The alcohol itself can also have positive health effects, but remember, this only applies to small amounts.
