Food That Turns Back the Clock of Aging
We are all about anti-aging tips and how to keep ourselves looking like we are in our twenties, for as many years as we can. We want to look our best, no matter what age. Here are a couple foods that if eaten daily can drastically reduce the aging factor in your life.
Eating air-popped popcorn, brown rice, oatmeal or any other whole grains daily, has been proven to cut your production of C-reactive protein, a compound that fast-forwards the aging process by 38%! These fiber packed foods can also trim your middle, on average, by 8 pounds, by preventing blood sugar surges that are the leading cause of premature aging and weight gain in your belly.
Reverse aging with berries.
Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and blackberries have 12 times the antioxidants than most fruit including apples, pears and bananas. Studies show that eating these fruits daily can help reverse both brain and and body aging from the USDA.
Frozen berries are the most nutrient and antioxidant dense because they are frozen at their peak of ripeness. They often contain more anti-aging power than fresh berries. They don't have to deal with the long journey from when they were picked until they arrive at the supermarket.
We have a fantastic blueberry protein shake from Dr. Oz. Click here to check it out.
