The Anti-Age Foods : Fruits and Vegetables That Keep You Healthy, Invigorated and Vibrant – T A Shobukola
When you wish to secure your age and look younger. This is the way to look. Hipocrates, the acclaimed Father of medicine, in his popular statement ” Let Food be Thy Medicine and Medicine your Food ” advocated the use of nutrition as the only Healing Remedy when he said, ” Everyone has a doctor in him or her; we just have to help it in its work. It had been said that Food, or lack of it, is the main cause of the vast majority of our health problems, and therefore food is also the solution. Foods can heal in ways drugs never can. This is because drugs can only relieve the symptoms of disease, but rarely cure the underlying condition the way foods can and also because our bodies evolved over millions of years to thrive on foods. Foods are nature’s way to repair, restore and rejuvenate; they heal the body without dangerous side effects. Our food should therefore be our medicine and our medicine should be our food” So, you only need to eat right in order to live well. It is important to note that as we age, we can become deficient in certain vitamins and minerals that may not be the case in our younger years. As one gets older, one may not be able to digest food well as one did when younger, and so one may not be getting the same nutrients out of the diet. Much of the aging process is attributed to the fact that our cells start to break down and decay, leading to wrinkles and problems with skin elasticity. Free radicals contribute to this process significantly, so it is important to eat foods that are rich in the antioxidants that destroy them and erase all the debilitating effects of junk and de-natured foods in the body. It had been said that every cell of our body contains a “clock,” therefore the purpose of these age-erasing foods is to “turn ” the hand of the clock back as it were. They provide age-less health to the whole system by helping in regaining lost energy and vibrancy. They remove all the devastating effects of junk foods in the body leaving it renewed and refreshed to experience youthful vibrancy. These energy-infusing foods roll back the years and provide energy and vitality. The anti-oxidants in the fruits and vegetables attach themselves to free radicals and carry them safely out of the body. Including these foods into our normal diet will not only slow down the aging process but also help in aglng graciously by protecting our body from diseases that come with age, such as Alzheimer’s, heart disease, stroke, skin wrinkles etc. Eat them raw and organic as much as possible because cooking can damage the antioxidants and enzymes that fight free radicals. In cooking them, just steam them so that they are still firm because the more cooked, the more nutrients are lost.
