There are many areas you’d need to consider when attempting to look as young as possible.

One example is what you eat. This short article is a quick summary of food that help you look your best, and food that work against your objectives.

Fast Foods

We all know how quick, convenient and tasty fast foods are.

What we also need to know is how much fast foods can promote aging.

Try to eat grilled meat whenever possible. Drink water instead of soda.

Examine the menu in front of you and seek out low-calorie options. Thankfully, more and more restaurants provide this information in their menus.

Fruit Drinks

Do not just trust the branding on your canned fruit drink, but look at the label carefully. Don’t buy anything that’s more sugar than actual fruit extract.

Your best bet is to shop at health food stores and organic supermarkets. Consider purchasing fruit juices with high polyphenol content such as green tea (good) and pomegranate juice (better).

Several research done so far have shown polyphenols to have excellent anti-aging properties in their chemical compound group. One important job they perform is to soak up free radicals in your body like a sponge.

Reduce Your Salt Intake

Too much salt causes blood pressure and fluid retention to increase. Women after fifty years of age are more susceptible to this occurrence.

Don’t Forget Your Teeth and Bones

You’ll need to take good care of your calcium intake and absorption to reduce the risk of osteoporosis.

Citrus fruits such as lemons and oranges contain bioflavonoids that strengthen the structure of your teeth and bones.

The Vitamin C present in these citrus fruits also helps in ensuring sufficient calcium absorption.

Chow Down On That Fiber

Incorporate fiber in all your meals.

Doubling up your daily fiber intake right now will ensure your body absorbs fewer, unnecessary calories.

Detox

Detoxification can range from a one-day fast to taking detoxing beverages and soups which you can live on for two days to a week. There are also detox herbs on the market that you can consider.

The goal of any detoxification program is to jump-start aging metabolisms, stops cravings, reduce water weight and restores the liver’s natural fat-burning power.

Apple Pectin

This helps the body get more efficient at burning calories by dumping wastes and toxins from our body.

Cayenne Pepper

Another detox candidate food. Cayenne peppers stimulates your metabolism by introducing a “heating” effect on the body. This stimulates blood circulation, opens up the pores and promotes detoxification through perspiration.

Flaxseed

Ingesting flax seeds helps suppress our appetites. These also cleans toxins and wastes from our body.

Ginger Root

This stimulates our metabolism and prevents water retention.

Parsley

This wonderful herb acts as a natural diuretic.

Peppermint

This stimulates circulation and opens up pores.

Psyllium Husk

This boosts our metabolism and acts as a natural laxative.
