Superfoods That Protect You From Aging
History and fiction filled with stories about eternal youth, sadly that is only myth. Recently, science shows some diet might slow aging like an umbrella protects you from rainwater. Nutritionists at top health institutes explain that superfoods have two features in common. First, they fight and stop any inflammation, many types of illness that associated with aging come from inflammation such as cancer, Alzheimer, and heart disease. Second, they have no or very few amount of sugar, which usually associated with insulin regulation mechanism. Recently, multiple studies show that excess insulin secretion in blood vascular system is the primary factor related to aging acceleration.
Extra virgin olive oil and Whole grains
Heart disorders are the major death factor in united states for both men and women. Therefore, eating a particular diet that protects heart is a fundamental element in this equation. Physicians already prove that if you have normal blood pressure, normal blood sugar level, normal cholesterol level, and low level of inflammation, your heart attacks chance will be less than 75-90% than typical American.
Now let us explore some of these harmful foods that increase inflammation and have lots of sugar. Foods that have carnitine, lecithin, and choline, for instance, red meat, egg yolk, peanuts, soybeans, and additives, stimulates gut bacteria (gut flora) to produce a substance called trimethylamine. Human body usually tries to oxidize such organic waste to remove out of the body, however, that compound convert to trimethylamine N-oxide (TON). TON is one of the worst chemicals that cause inflammatory reactions in heart, arteries, and forms harmful clogs.
Luckily, for those who can not stop eating red meat and peanuts, recent studies show that extra virgin olive oil has a substance called 3,3- dimethyl- 1-butanol (DMB) that able to stop converting trimethylamine to the harmful occlusion caused TON. Three tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil daily are enough to provide sufficient amount of DMB that prevents the inflammation effect produced from eating red meat. To have the right amount of DMB in olive oil, you need to check the origins of the olive oils. The researcher suggests that Italian olive oil is of bad quality regarding DMB. Instead, Spain, California, Turkey, and Greece olive oils are the best in this regards. DMB also found in other foods like watermelon, and balsamic vinegar.
Furthermore, whole grain fibers, such as brown rice, oatmeal, quinoa, farro, and barley are heart protective foods. Whole grains packed with Dietary fibers, vitamin B (thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate) and some minerals such as magnesium and iron. Dietary fibers lower bold cholesterol level and vitamins B with minerals maintain cardiovascular health.
Cruciferous veggies, Wild organic fruits, Green tea, Turmeric, and Brazilian nut
Same anti-inflammation foods have another role that keep your cells healthy and that protect against developing tumors. Cruciferous veggies like broccoli, collard greens, kale, Brussels sprouts, arugula, broccoli rabe, wasabi, and cabbage, all have the ability to protect the body from cancer because they filled with anti-inflammatory and antioxidants substances. In opposing of that, fruits filled with sugar which lead to age acceleration.
Nutritionists recommended organic wild veggies and fruits because they have hundreds time more nutrients than farmed vegetables, wild blueberries, and dandelion for an instant have much more antioxidants than cultivated once.
Omega-3, Unsaturated fats, Fish, and Coffee
A healthy diet such as Mediterranean, built around polyunsaturated fats, dietary fibers, low sugar is also protecting your brain against aging. Recent research shows that healthy fats such as omega-3 are of particular importance for cognitive function. Researchers found that eating fish lower the chance of having brain damage like dementia. Seafood such as Salmon and trout have enough of that good fat for a week or so.
Coffee may also protect against mental disorders. Several studies show that people who drink more than six cups daily, their brain processing speed level were six years younger. Coffee associated with some risk for those who have slow metabolism system, therefore they should take it easy on coffee.
