SUPERFOODS FOR ANTI-AGING & LONGEVITY



 SUPERFOODS FOR ANTI-AGING & LONGEVITY

We all want to live longer, healthier more fulfilling lives.  But we can't if we're filling our bodies with processed foods, sugars, high sodium and trans fats all the time. To turn back the hands of time choose wisely what you feed your body.  

Just like a race car, if you put in poor fuel you will have poor results from your car's engine; however, if you fuel your race car with racing fuel your car will utilize it's engine optimally.
Superfoods are no different for us. We are what we eat. Our bodies reflect the love and care we give it on a daily basis. If your skin look dull and your hair is lifeless that's a sure sign of your body telling you that you need to eat healthier, whole foods.

Including superfoods into your diet is highly beneficial for anti-aging and longevity in all stages of life.  If you want to live longer and happier then eat fruits and veggies that are chuck full of the goodness of life. 

Eating healthy whole fresh fruits, nuts, veggies, melons, berries and legumes are natures “fountain of youth”. You can turn back the clock better with a diet filled with super foods than you can with the “latest and greatest” anti-aging lotions and potions.

Mother Nature is constantly providing us with a new bountiful season of fresh producing filled with decadent fruits, vegetables and berries. Fresh produce is delicious and are highly nutritious.

Fresh produce is power packed with antioxidants.  Berries are known to boost immunity which wards off life-threatening diseases such as cancer and heart disease.  Berries are also an amazing anti-aging food and are packed with antioxidants and fiber.

Another superfood that aids in heart disease prevention is avocado.  Avocados can lower your LDL "bad" cholesterol while raising your HDL "good" levels, and they help your body absorb heart-healthy vitamins like beta-carotene and lycopene.

TOP SUPERFOODS

Here is a list of the top 100 superfoods.  Fill your pantry and refrigerator with superfoods to have more energy, endurance, clearer skin, healthier hair and to improve your immune system.  You will soon find that the clock of time will have reversed as well as your skin will look more radiant and youthful.
