5 Foods for Anti-Aging: Feast Your Way to a Youthful Glow
Everyone wants to fend off the hands of time, right? The good news is that you don’t need Benjamin Button’s secret to look younger. You just need to know what to eat. Through smart dietary choices, you might not only slow the aging process but perhaps even reverse it. Today, let’s dive into the five best foods to help you fight aging.
Olive With Olive Oil
At the forefront of this youth-boosting pack is extra virgin olive oil. Touted as one of the healthiest oils on the market, it gets a hefty thumbs-up from health enthusiasts worldwide. A growing trend involves starting your day with a shot of olive oil mixed with lemon and a dash of cayenne pepper.

I admit, I’ve adopted it into my daily routine – and guess what? The results have been fantastic! I’ve noticed a remarkable improvement in my skin tone, not to mention my overall health. So, what’s the secret behind this magical oil?
73% of olive oil’s fat content comes from monounsaturated fats. More than just a fancy term, these fats help fight inflammation, keeping your skin youthful and vibrant. A 2012 study highlighted participants with monounsaturated fats in their diet showed a lower risk of severe aging [link to the study].

Wake Up to Green Tea

The green tea phenomena resonate strongly in wellness circles, and for a good reason. Renowned for its plentiful antioxidants, green tea’s polyphenols are a titan against aging. They help your body with essential functions such as digestion and fat burn. But that’s not all!

Take your anti-aging efforts a notch higher by opting for Matcha. Expertly ground from green tea leaves, Matcha provides a more concentrated dose of nutrients. The abundant polyphenols in matcha, shown in various studies, wage war against aging effects so well, you’ll feel like reverting to your teenage years!
Dive into Fatty Fish
If you’re a seafood aficionado, your favorite could be doing more for you than pleasing your taste buds. When we talk of fatty fish, pink salmon often comes to mind. However, be keen to source wild-caught salmon over farmed versions.

Its attractive pink color comes from an antioxidant compound called acazanthin – one of the world’s most potent. Wild salmon is also rich in omega 3 fats that counter inflammation and aging.

(SIDENOTE: As for the most potent antioxidant, glutathione, we’ll delve into that in another post discussing supplements like NAC.)
Chocoholic’s Delight
If you have a sweet tooth, here’s some fantastic news. You can satisfy your cravings and fight aging. There’s a hitch, though: it’s dark chocolate – not milk or white variations.

Similar to green tea, dark chocolate is also abundant in polyphenols, the phenomenal antioxidants that combat aging and inflammation. A 24-week study demonstrated that participants who consumed hot cocoa made with dark chocolate exhibited fewer signs of aging, better skin elasticity, and fewer wrinkles.
Feel Flax-seed Fantastic
Flaxseeds are a dietary delight, not just for their anti-aging effects but also their high fiber content. This means you’ll feel full for longer, experience fewer sugar spikes, and have better digestive regularity.

What’s more, flaxseeds are an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids, and alpha-linoic acid (ALA), two significant players in the aging combat league. Coupled with their high polyphenol content, flaxseeds round out our top-five anti-aging food list excellently.
Moderation is Key
With these five anti-aging foods in your diet, you’re on your way to a healthier, youthful version of yourself. However, remember to consume these foods in moderation. Overeating, even the healthiest foods, can lead to weight gain, which inherently speeds up aging.
