Feeling young and rested is not easy in life, so let’s see part two of the anti-aging foods category.
Avocados are one of the richest sources of monounsaturated fats and contain biotin for healthy skin.
Watermelon is a source of lycopene, which protects the skin from UV rays.
Kelp contains vitamins C and E, which protect fats in the skin’s moisture barrier from free-radical damage.
Lentils are a good source of zinc.
Pumpkin seeds are pumped full of antioxidants and magnesium, which help lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke.
Eggs are high in iron and biotin.
Pomegranate seeds contain juice rich in ellagic acid and punic alagin – 2 agents that fight damage from free radicals and preserve the collagen in your skin.
Oatmeal is high in soluble fiber which reduces LDL cholesterol (the “bad” cholesterol”).
Black currants contain a compound called anthocyanosides, which can help improve vision. Additionally, this superfood contains 5 times the vitamin C that oranges do, making it a superb immunity booster.
Cranberry juice disrupts the formation of plague and thereby prevents yellowing of teeth. The flavonoids in cranberry juice also counteract the damaging effects of bacteria that cause tooth decay. Be careful that you aren’t drinking a sugar-laden cranberry juice cocktail.
Dark chocolate will help curb your sweet tooth and is rich in flavonoids.
