Anti Aging Nutrition

The statement "you are what you eat", is entirely true. We feel great when we eat good foods whereas When we eat things that aren't so good for us, they may taste good , but they may end up aging us quicker than naturally. Firstly, You must know that Anti aging nutrition isn't rocket science.

Anti Nutritions

Antiaging Diet
Is there such a thing as an antiaging diet? I've read several Anti Aging books and articles about our nutritional needs as we grow older. Several things stand out.

1. Eat more fruits and veggies -
Fruits And VegetablesIt's true although you've heard it thousand times. Fruits and vegetables contain the nutrients that we all need. The best choice for fruits and veggies is organic. Organic fruits and vegetables don't have the chemicals and toxins that other produce may be hiding. Eating organic is one piece of the natural cancer cure.

2. Eat less sugar -
Less SugarPrevention magazine had an interesting article recently that linked eating sugar to the formation of wrinkles. As we all want to decrease wrinkles, it makes sense to decrease our sugar intake and maintain anti aging skin care.

3. Eat whole grains -
Whole GrainsAgain, you may already know this, but refined white flour was probably the poorest invention of modern times. Whole grains provides our bodies with the fiber we need.

4. Eat less meat -
Less MeatMeats put our bodies in a more acidic state. Research has shown that we are healthier with our bodies in a more alkaline state. So reduce intake of meat.

5. Drink more water -
Drink Water We have more than 60% of water in our body and it is by far, the best thing for our bodies which keeps us hydrated, not only our insides, but also our outsides - our skin. Hydrated skin looks younger.

6. Eat less -
Eat LessOuch! That one hurt. As we get older we need less food. Our metabolism slows down and if we keep eating the same amount, we gain weight. Exercise helps, but most of us could stand to eat less.

What about an anti-aging nutritional supplement? You may be wondering if you need one. Several are available on the market. I take nutritional supplements every day because I know that I don't eat as well as I should. I know that I'm lacking in several areas.

Anti Aging Treatments -anti aging skin care

Vitamins C, A & E have all been touted as antiaging vitamins which are good nutrients to have in a anti aging skin care product. They are also good to take as part of an antioxidant dietary supplement.
In all, keeping our body at a healthy weight and eating nutritious food helps us to feel great whatever our age is.

There are several foods that rank high on the recommended list for anti-aging foods because of their natural ability to rid the body of toxins. One that kept coming up while researching this topic was Blueberries. Several other foods were listed even many other berries. But blueberries always seemed to top the list, because they are naturally high in anthocyanin. This is an antioxidant found in their blue pigment.

This is not only good for anti-aging, but it help fight cell damage, which could cause cancer, heart disease and many other age related diseases. It is even suggested that blueberries could reverse short -term memory loss and aid in the improvement of motor skills.
