Aging is a natural process and everyone goes through it, but if you want to age gracefully and keep others guessing your actual age, then keep watching for the best foods to eat to fight the signs of aging over 40.
The human body is made up of about 60 percent water and our blood is 90 percent H2O, but most of us don’t drink enough each day. A healthy adult needs about 2 liters of water each day. As we age, the sensation of thirst decreases. So it’s that much more important to make sure you’re getting enough each day. Water has all kinds of benefits from regulating your body temperature, helping you think clearly, flushing toxins from your body and yes keeping your skin looking young, radiant and wrinkle free.
Here’s another reason why your mom was right when she told you to eat your veggies. Broccoli is one of those foods that can do a world of good for your body. It’s anti-inflammatory and anti aging. Plus it’s loaded with good stuff like lots of different antioxidants which fight off free radicals that cause cell damage.
Blueberries contain antioxidants called anthocyanins which not only help you appear younger but it’s also why blueberries are blue! Plus the phytochemicals found in berries and certain vegetables combat oxidative stress and inflammation in the brain which could reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
Almonds and walnuts especially, are definitely something you should add into your diet if you’re looking to keep that youthful glow. Almonds are one of the best sources of vitamin E out there, and vitamin E helps your body repair any damaged skin tissue, keeps your skin hydrated, and can even protect it from the sun’s damaging rays.
