Can certain foods help?
Are you worried about those wrinkles on your forehead or your prominent smile lines getting weary? Signs of aging appear with time, such as wrinkles and weariness.
With our current lifestyle and eating habits, people are beginning to experience signs of aging younger than ever before. But did you know simple nutritional interventions can help prevent them?
We age due to a process in our body called oxidation.
Theoretically, if you can prevent oxidation, you can prevent aging.
Thus, logically, foods that are high in anti-oxidant content, helps us prevent oxidation, and thus aging.
But is there a way of measuring the antioxidant levels in food?
There is! Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) is a test tube analysis that determines the total antioxidant capacity of foods and other chemical compounds.
Foods with a high ORAC score may help protect cells and organs from oxidative damage.
Eating a diet rich in high-ORAC fruits and vegetables may help slow the aging process in both the body and the brain.
What foods have the highest ORAC value?
What does science say?
According to studies, excessive generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and a reduction in antioxidant defense with age both contribute to aging.
Several chronic diseases are also linked to oxidative stress, and hence, it is rather a wise decision to consume food with high ORAC value to prevent aging early on.
Now you know why Goji berries are a part of your plan if you are my client :)
