Alternative Health Journal Announces Top Anti-Aging Foods

CB101828‘You are what you eat’ is a popular mantra of the modern age, and many people do report several benefits when they are eating a healthy, wholesome diet. The Alternative Health Journal, an online publication that provides information on natural health and wellness options, recently listed several foods that may have anti-aging benefits.

Fish tops the list, and researchers have found that fatty fish that contains Omega-3s is a valuable source of healthy fats and protein. Salmon and tuna may be some of the best sources for these healthy fats and proteins, and can be easily integrated into the diet on a weekly basis.

Red wine also makes it to the anti-aging foods and drinks list, because it contains a high concentration of antioxidants and may have the added benefit of lowering blood pressure. Experts recommend a glass of red wine with dinner just once or twice per week to enjoy its full benefits.

Dark, leafy vegetables are high on the anti-aging foods list because these also contain a significant amount of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Vegetables such as spinach, kale, and various types of dark green lettuce may be a valuable addition to your anti-aging platter.

Finally, nuts have been deemed a necessary addition to the anti-aging menu. Walnuts, almonds, cashews and other types of nuts contain healthy fats and are a rich source of protein. Nuts not only help to curb hunger, but can also make you feel more satisfied with eating smaller meals throughout the day. Nuts can be eaten as a snack, or sprinkled on salads and other foods for easy integration into the daily or weekly menu.

Eating a variety of anti-aging foods offers several heart and skin benefits, and may help to reduce the effects of cell damage associated with the aging process. Overall, a well-balanced diet that includes these foods may be the key to looking and feeling young for the long-term.
