The Anti-Aging Diet

Aging sounds little dull right?

So, the Question is how can we brighten this feeling?

 As such aging is the law of nature it depends on an individual to accept it gracefully and by good preparation or just avoid and have a dull, wrinkled frowny face!!!

 

So if you are bold enough and except the fact of aging and are ready to age gracefully than Spandan Homeo Cure will definitely help you.

In trying to look your best without going under the knife, a secret ingredient might be right under your nose. One answer to aging gracefully can be found in the grocery store — in fruits, vegetables, green tea, and a host of other healthful foods that are rich in antioxidants and other potentially age-deterring compounds.

 

Now let us understand What Is Aging?

Yes you are thinking correctly its sign of getting older i.e not just getting wrinkles but it also comprises of other bunch of problems such as memory loss, decreased brain function, and an increasing risk for chronic diseases such as heart diseases,osteoporosis, and cancer.

All of the above is normal aging process which occurs due to our daily stressful life style.

Now  Question comes how to get healthy aging??

Healthy Aging  is also defined as living a longer, healthier life. And many studies have documented the link between a healthy diet and prevention of age-related or chronic diseases.

Adopting a healthy lifestyle that includes regular physical activity, adequate rest, avoiding tobacco, and a diet full of healthy foods and beverages can be the best defense against aging.

Dietary choices are critical to delay the onset of aging and age-related diseases, and the sooner you start, the greater the benefit.

 

Antioxidants and Inflammation

Some foods and beverages contain powerful substances called phytonutrients that are capable of unlocking the key to longevity. Phytonutrients, which are members of the antioxidant family, gobble up “free radicals” — oxygen molecules that play a role in the onset of illnesses such as heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer’sdisease.

As we age, we become more susceptible to the long-term effects of oxidative stress (a condition where the body basically has too many free radicals) and inflammation on the cellular level. The theory is that antioxidants and other age-defying compounds help cells ward off damage from free radicals and minimize the impact of aging.

Beyond antioxidants, some other compounds in foods can affect aging. They can be classified according to their impact on inflammation at the cellular level.

All foods fit into three categories:  1. pro-inflammatory 2. neutral 3. anti-inflammatory

You can help to slow aging at the cellular level by choosing foods that are anti-inflammatory and rich in antioxidants.

“Age-related changes may be reversed by consuming foods and beverages that are rich in a variety of compounds, including antioxidants, and are anti-inflammatory, such as cold-water fish and richly colored fruits and vegetables.”

On the other hand, foods classified as pro-inflammatory can accelerate aging.

If “we eat large amounts of saturated or trans fatty acids, sugars, and starches, insulin levels surge and trigger an anti-inflammatory response and accelerate the aging process.”

“Stress, hormones, ultraviolet light, and a weakened immune system also contribute to aging.”

Still, making smart lifestyle choices are within your control, and are among the best things you can do to help prevent disease and retard aging.

Food for Healthy Aging

For maximum benefits you should load up on a variety of healthy foods.

Foods and beverages into your eating plan for good health and to reduce the signs of aging:

  • Fish Eat twice weekly, especially the fatty kind that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids. This is a powerful anti-inflammatory food that offers a multitude of health benefits.
  • Fruits and vegetables are powerhouses of antioxidants. Enjoy at least 5 servings per day for the maximum benefits.
  • Whole grains provide soluble fiber to help lower blood cholesterollevels, and also have phytonutrient content equal to any fruit or vegetable. Strive for at least 3 daily servings.
  • Legumes are unsung heroes, packed with nutrients similar to fruits and vegetables and with very few calories. Add them to your diet 3 to 4 times a week.
  • Yogurt has all the benefits of dairy foods, plus probiotics that help add healthy bacteria to the intestines. Eating a yogurt with active cultures as one of your 3 dairy servings each day.
  • Nuts are a great source of B vitamins that are good for your heart and your brain. The healthy fats in nuts benefit the elastin and collagen in skin, helping to maintaining skin’s structure and keep it resilient. Small portions are advised, as nuts are high in calories.
  • Water is essential for hydration of the skin, muscles, circulation, and all organs in the body. Enjoy 3-4 glasses of pure water in addition to other liquids and watery foods.
