Best superfoods for anti-aging benefits
Updated: Jul 16, 2019
As you grow older, you start to look towards anti-aging options in your daily life. These may consist of everything from makeup and serums to essential oils as well as superfoods. If you are trying to change your diet plans and incorporate superfoods that help with anti-aging or offer advanced anti-aging benefits then there are a few you can consider. In fact, you may already be ingesting some of these foods now, and will find you only need to add more of these nutrient rich anti-aging superfoods. Here are a few to consider for your own anti-aging routine and issues.
When you think of anti-aging superfoods you may be looking for foods that focus on your body, either internally or externally. The truth is, anti-aging also deals with your mind and memory as well. If you are concerned about your memory, and have noticed some issues lately, consider adding blueberries to your diet. You can do this in dried form, powder, in juices, as part of superfood bowls, or as part of a superfood fruit salad. You can even incorporate them into salad dressings. In addition to anthocyanins, that aid with memory, they also have anti-inflammatory attributes that can help aging muscles and joints.
The great thing about using avocados in your anti-aging superfood plan is the ease of which you can add them. One of the easiest ways to add avocado is to blend it to a cream form with a little bit of olive oil and then use it as a mayonnaise. This can also be done in salads as well as a replacement for many dressings. Avocados can be found year round in most areas. They work in anti-aging due to their monounsaturated fats, normally called good fats, that help absorb and keep other nutrients in your body for longer. This means they boost your other superfoods to their maximum benefits.
Kale is one of the most popular forms of leafy greens used in anti-aging superfood recipes. They contain phytonutrients which prevent free radical damage to the body. They also help reduce heart disease and the risk of heart disease, which is a huge concern for most people looking at assistance with anti-aging. You can easily add kale and other leafy greens into juices, smoothies, and as a simple daily salad as well.
These foods can be added to your juicing, smoothies, superfood bowls, and even as capsules that are taken throughout the day. Remember, most superfoods work best when used with a complete healthy eating diet plan and exercise routine.
