Certain foods have real anti-aging benefits. Find out why and what your anti-aging plate essentials are.
It is normal to age but aging is accelerated by stress, pollution, lack of physical activity, dietary errors … It is possible to act on factors to slow down aging and age well. Nutrition in particular has a very important impact on the biological processes linked to aging.
One of the main causes of aging premature is a diet too rich in sugar and quickly processed foods in blood sugars such as bread, potatoes, industrial fruit juices … Too high levels of sugar in the blood promote the production of pro-inflammatory substances. Sugar attaches to proteins and this reaction between proteins and sugar caramelizes the tissues: this is called la glycation. Glycation is a phenomenon that promotes premature aging.
The oxidative stress linked to free radicals is also an accelerating factor in aging. Tobacco, stress, excess solar radiation, pollution, a poor diet promote oxidative stress.
Certain foods protect us against aging. These are foods rich in vitamins and antioxidant trace elements (vitamins C, A, E, zinc, selenium …) that counter free radicals, those rich in protective omega-3 fatty acids which protect among other things the membranes of cells , those containing polyphenols (flavonoids, tannins) which also fight against the excess of free radicals. Discover the best anti-aging foods.
