Eat your way to 100!

Believe it or not, there is such a thing as an anti-aging diet, and you don’t have to spend a fortune on exotic foods to get big benefits.

Many diseases that strike as you age are caused by oxidative stress, or the accumulation of too many free radicals in the body. Free radicals are oxygen particles that can damage tissues and cause inflammation on the cellular level. To prevent oxidative stress, research points to the power of antioxidants.

One class of antioxidants called phytonutrients clears free radicals from your body so cells stay healthy and disease free.

To get an ample supply of antioxidants, eat a diet full of colourful fruits and vegetables. Dark leafy greens, bright orange vegetables and fresh or frozen berries are just a few choices that studies prove are particularly high in antioxidants. Virtually all types of fruit and vegetables have benefits. Other antioxidant-rich foods include nuts, legumes and whole grains.

To get your full benefit of vitamins and minerals it is advisable also to take a liquid multivitamin and mineral which you will absorb easily and an extra anti oxidant supplement to boost your immune system.
