4 Foods that will Help you Live Longer and Run Better
If you want to live longer, fight of the effects of aging and run better, then try incorporating these 4 great foods with antioxidants into your diet.
1. BRAZIL NUTS
Just two Brazil nuts a day will supply your recommended daily intake of selenium.
This is a powerful kind of antioxidants that research suggests can reduce the risk of cancer, cut down the chance of joint inflammation, and protect the skin from sunburn.
A wide variety of berries contain powerful antioxidants that research suggests can turn on a ‘survival gene’ called Sirtuin 1. The gene promotes DNA repair and is said to have a positive effect on genes that help programme you for longevity.
Berries such as Blueberries, blackberries, blackcurrants, raspberries and red grapes can also help protect against heart disease, brain damage and cancer.
Add half a cup of berries to your daily diet for the most benefit.
Salmon makes it onto tons of healthy food lists and with good reason. This healthy fish is packed with omega-3 fatty acids that help with skin condition and flexible joints.
They also provide great anti-inflammatory properties and since inflammation in the body is linked to the development of heart disease, cancers and diabetes, Salmon can help provide vital anti ageing properties.
Garlic is a versatile ingredient that can be used in many dishes. The ingredient is rich in protective sulphur compounds that can help protect against many forms of cancer and heart disease. The sulphur found in garlic is also a key mineral that helps your keep healthy joints and skin.
Eating up to one clove of cooked or raw garlic on a daily basis is recommended to achieve the maximum benefit.
