Healthy foods are not always the most popular foods. But, they can be very good with very little trouble. The information below should motivate you to eat fruit.
Healthy foods can actually keep wrinkles and signs of aging at bay. Actually, by just eating right you can help yourself look younger and you will live longer. So the next time you are about to grab a peanut butter crunch bar, grab some nuts instead. This doesn’t sound nearly as appealing does it? It just might when you are finished reading.
Here are just a few healthy foods that are proven age-fighters:
• Oranges, grapefruits and other citrus fruits
All citrus fruits contain high amounts of vitamin C. If you want to literally seal up the wrinkles and cracks in your skin, you should use a product containing vitamin C. Topical vitamin C is widely used in anti-aging products. But you must be able to heal from within too and if you eat oranges you will get a huge dose of vitamin C.
Walnuts are full of antioxidants. Which can make them great suppliers of cancer fighting compounds. Not only will they keep skin cancer from developing, they can also fight discoloration and other types of environmental weathering.
• Green tea
Green tea is another great source for antioxidants.
Almonds are very well known for the amount of vitamin E they contain. When you apply vitamin E topically it can actually lighten scars and stretch marks. It can also diminish existing age spots. However, when taken internally vitamin E can help prevent the formation of these marks in the first place.
(Note: taking vitamin E can affect any surgeries you may have coming up, so ask your doctor what the appropriate amount to take would be. Extra vitamin E can actually make people bleed more, so you may want to stop taking it or any other supplements at this time)
