It's no secret that many are trying to find the fountain of youth and along the way invest
a lot of energy and money in creams with miraculous promises, stretching injections, facials and more. All of this is done when we practically have powerful anti-aging sources that we can get from the vegetables right next door to the plate.

In our daily routine we are exposed to air pollution, exposed to stress and fed on sugars, oxidized and fried oils and fast foods that produce free radicals that damage the cells of the body and disrupt their ability to put nutrients and fluids in them, while removing toxins. . In addition, over the years, the skin becomes less fluid and therefore flaking and wrinkles form - the skin looks dry and not vibrant and the fact is that the brain cells are not what they used to be.

Wonderful substances called antioxidants found in essential foods that we can find in our natural environment can protect and slow these damages and produce freshness inside and out.

Here are some foods that will help you look and feel fresh and slow down the aging process:

Strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries, as well as pomegranate, red plum, and açaí are some of the strongest fruits and should be eaten fresh or frozen. In addition, it is highly recommended to eat them without sugar, which binds proteins and impairs cell function.

Purple fruits are among those with the highest antioxidant index - called orac units - which are recommended to be consumed at least 1,000-2,000 units per day. Berries contain thousands of antioxidants per 100 grams. In addition, these are fruits with a relatively low glycemic index. This means that they lower blood sugar levels even less and protect against sugar damage.

Due to the high absorption of toxins from the sprays, it is advisable to purchase this leafy vegetable from organic crops. Green leaves contain two special plant chemicals called lutein and chlorophyll. Lutein is known as the "inner sunglasses" and it specifically protects the eyes from degeneration and damage from sunlight (a phenomenon mostly common in the elderly). Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant that has the ability to protect and remove toxins from the body and even speed up the healing of scars and wounds.


True, this isn't the milk chocolate you know, but cocoa-based chocolate that hasn't been roasted and is full of antioxidants has some important benefits. Cocoa is one of the richest ingredients in orac units. If you want to succeed, you should avoid sugar additives, preservatives, and refined oils. As mentioned, at least the chocolate you know.


If spices seem marginal in the nutritional value of a meal, know that cinnamon, tarragon, black pepper, cayenne pepper, oregano and spices with fresh ginger root or turmeric add far beyond flavor. They should be eaten fresh and stored in the freezer.

Foods containing vitamin C.

We know it since winter and use it to prevent diseases, but this vitamin, which is found in broccoli, pumpkin, tomatoes, guava, cabbage, spinach, kiwi and more - is responsible for more than 300 biological processes in the body, as well as neutralizing it for free. The roots are also a hormonal balance. It is important to know that the vitamin tends to fade so we get it mainly from eating fresh vegetables and fruits.

Walnuts (not roasted)

King walnut, resembling a brain in shape, protects against degeneration of this organic cell, and not only that. It contains omega-3, an antibacterial fatty acid, which moisturizes the cells of the body, improving skin appearance and even mood and focus.

Merge all of these into the list? You should enrich your plate each time with something new. In addition, it is important to remember to drink enough fluids to hydrate the skin, balance stress levels and try to avoid eating sugars, preservatives, stabilizers and flavorings that disrupt the metabolism in the cells of the body.
