You are what you eat. That statement is entirely true. When we eat good foods, we feel better. When we eat things that aren't so good for us, they may taste good (& do they ever), but they may end up aging us quicker than we'd like. Anti aging nutrition isn't rocket science. In fact, you may already know most of the info in this section. But, I know I need to hear it over and over and over again.
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 - I know you've heard it a million times, but it's true. 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 - Prevention 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 -
Again, 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 - Meats put our bodies in a more acidic state. Research has shown that we are healthier with our bodies in a more alkaline state.
5 . Drink more water - We drink too much "other stuff." Water is by far, the best thing for our bodies. It keeps us hydrated, not only our insides, but also our outsides - our skin. Hydrated skin looks younger.
6. Eat less - Ouch! 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. They 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 your body at a healthy weight and eating nutritious food goes a long way toward helping us feel our best at any age.
