How To Cheat Your Aging Process
Aging is a natural process. While many are afraid of it and consider it bad, it’s not about aging as much as it is about how you do so. Here is how to age smartly and cheat the process –
Keep your diet rich in antioxidants
Oxidation is a process occurring in cells that can damage your body by creating free radicals. Make sure you consume as much antioxidants as possible in the form of berries, tomatoes etc.
Avoid rapid weight loss
Make sure you don’t lose a lot of weight very quickly until and unless it’s contributing to a chronic disease in your body. Having some extra fat helps in decreasing the appearance of wrinkles.
Take help from vitamins
Egg yolks, corns, oranges are some food items that are rich in a compound known as keratinoid which can help you tackle drying and thinning of your skin as you get older . Taking food rich in Vitamin E And Vitamin C can benefit your skin.
Due to inactivity and low testosterone , we lose muscle mass as we grow old. Having protein rich diet evenly distributed throughout the day makes sure you have good muscles helping you in keeping your strength, mobility and more.
Anti inflammatory diet is important
To age gracefully, avoiding inflammation (which can happen from things like smoking, diabetes etc) is must. A diet rich in omega-3 as well as exercising can help you tackle inflammation.
Take care of your gut
