At Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Surgery, we pride ourselves in our ability to offer the best quality cosmetic services in our industry. Along with cosmetic procedures, there is a lot that you can do every day to help yourself look and feel younger. The following suggestions outline specific anti-aging foods that you can integrate into your diet.
Sesame seeds are extremely high in calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and fiber. Because bones are made of more than merely calcium, look for foods like sesame seeds that are rich in minerals overall.
You can’t go wrong by adding more nuts into your anti-aging diet. Try to get one to two ounces of nuts every day to benefit from their anti inflammatory properties and cholesterol lowering effects. They also provide phytosterols, protein, fiber, and micronutrients for a more health enhancing diet.
Dark Chocolate is chock full of flavanols. Flavanols can enhance blood flow to the skin, absorb UV radiation, and protect your skin from the sun. Sorry, milk chocolate doesn’t count!
Blueberries are one of the top foods containing antioxidants. They also provide a shield against free radicals (which damage skin), stress, and pollution. They even have Vitamin C which can help stave off the skin damaging effects of the sun.
Lemon and Lime Juice
Vitamin C is a critical element in maintaining younger looking skin. One study demonstrated that women who ate larger portions of Vitamin C had less wrinkles and smoother skin. Vitamin C is a crucial component in helping your skin look brighter.
These tasty red seeds are well known for their ability to fight the damage caused by free radicals. They also have the ability to help the body preserve collagen.
Beans and Lentils
These tasty morsels contain plant based essential amino acids. Translation: they can meet all of your protein needs. As women age, their need for protein increases slightly. Lentils and beans are considered to be a top notch source of protein due to the fiber and phytochemicals they contain.
