It’s widely known that having a diet high in fruits, some spices and vegetables have a variety of health benefits. However, are any of these benefits related to help keeping you looking and feeling younger? Here are some foods that greatly aid in the anti-aging process.
Pomegranate Seeds-Pomegranate seeds not only contain high amounts of vitamin C and antioxidants, they also contain a compound called urolithin A. This is produced when pomegranates make contact with gut bacteria and may rejuvenate mitochondria.
Avocado-Avocados contain high amounts of nutrients which may prevent the negative aspects associated with aging, according to PubMed Central. These nutrients include vitamins K, C, and E as well as Potassium.*
Aged Black Garlic-Known for thousands of years for its health benefits, aged black garlic helps to reduce inflammation in the body, including the brain.* Inflammation in the brain can lead to several neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s.* Taking aged black garlic in capsule form (available on our website) or taken in bulb form is an ideal way to reap its benefits.
Incorporating these three foods in your diet will help you with your attempts at looking and feeling younger. With the vast amounts of nutrients found in these foods, you can only benefit by trying them out and seeing which works best for you. As always, please consult your healthcare provider before making any changes to your diet or exercise regimen.
