Most of us want to stay young as we get older, but achieving this is primarily related to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, especially when it comes to nutrition.
According to the “Real Simple” website, the diet we follow greatly affects how quickly the symptoms of aging appear on a person as we age.
Wendy Brasilin, an expert in nutrition and health, says that “there is no deviation from eating healthy foods to protect the body and keep it in good condition for a long time”.
The researcher refers to foods defined as “supernatural”, due to their great role in protecting health, but what is needed is to eat them regularly and not just from time to time.
Explain that these healthy foods can only have an impact if they are persistent and therefore cannot be consumed in passing and tangible results can be expected. According to Sky News.
At the forefront of these foods is the fruit of the berries, because it is an excellent source of vitamin “C”. It also includes other nutrients and antioxidants, as well as its role in boosting the brain’s cognitive abilities with age and reducing the risk of certain types of cancer.
In the same direction, walnuts reap various benefits, as a medical study revealed that people who regularly eat these nuts remain healthy by the time they reach middle age, compared to those who don’t eat walnuts, and the secret may lie in its great benefit to the heart muscle, which plays a vital role in the human body.
The tea drink, the most widespread in the world, also plays an important role in curbing the effects of aging, thanks to it because it contains antioxidant elements and is known in the scientific community as “EGCG”, as well as flavonoids and tyranine.
Tea is a useful drink because it works to reduce the cholesterol level in the body, being careful not to add a large amount of sugar to sweeten it.
And since most of the foods we eat are broken down into carbohydrates and proteins, what health experts recommend is a combination of the two through vegetables and grains like lentils, beans, and others.
In case of consumption of these foods, the person provides his body with important proportions of vitamins and minerals, which helps to prevent various chronic diseases, and the advantage of cereals, for example, such as beans, is that they are widely available in the world and they are not expensive.
According to the source, we shouldn’t limit ourselves to eating meat only in our food, but we should also add plants and spices, especially as they help us prepare delicious dishes.
Additionally, spices help reduce the effect of added salt and sugar in food and are anti-inflammatory.
In a study published in the journal “Nurology”, it was found that consuming fruits such as pears rich in fiber has a great benefit on the digestive system and heart function, as we age.
