No one likes the idea of growing older and being forced to face their mortality. And yet most of us will see precisely that happening every time we take a look in the mirror. Was that line or wrinkle there yesterday? Is that another grey hair? Where did that age spot come from??
Did your back hurt like that yesterday?
The situation may seem hopeless. The march of time, relentless.
But the good news is that you aren’t a passive victim in this situation. If you know what you’re doing, then there are plenty of ways you can keep yourself looking and feeling more youthful. Of course, exercise goes a long way, and getting lots of very health sleep is also very important. In this post though, you’ll learn about 14 anti-aging foods that can help to stop the clock and keep you looking and feeling amazing!
1. Red Grapes
Red grapes might just be among the most powerful anti-aging foods out there. The reason for this is that they are packed with a substance known as resveratrol. This is a substance that has been linked with anti-aging, and which many researchers now think might help us to live longer and avoid problems such as heart attack.
In fact, it was once thought that resveratrol was responsible for the long lifespans of people who ate Mediterranean diets. It was observed that these people ate very high-fat diets that we might normally associate with heart disease and early death. However, because these same populations actually enjoyed lifespans that were longer than the global average, the assumption was that something in their diets must be helping them to live longer. Could it be the red wine?
It seems that resveratrol is able to protect the mitochondria (the energy factories of the cells) which are often credited with boosting the youthful energy of young children compared with the older population, not to mention preventing the visible signs of aging and the formation of cancers.
It turns out that some calculations may have been wrong and resveratrol might not be quite the wonder molecule it was once thought to be. However, it is still widely regarded as an anti-aging food and one that you should seek out in the form of red grapes!
