Eating your way to long life

There are certain foods that contain special compounds that help increase the body’s natural defense system and also flush toxins and free radicals out of the body before they cause damage leading to cancer, heart disease, or aging early.

  • Consuming large amounts of foods like milk, carrots, broccoli, etc. increases the intake of Vitamin A into the body. Vitamin A is essential for healthy skin and helps to retard the aging process.
  • Dark, leafy greens reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer considerably.  They are rich in fiber and this stops insulin swings in the body and leaves you feeling fuller. Some greens contain significant amounts of calcium, which helps to maintain healthy teeth and bones, and lower the risk of osteoporosis.
  • Increasing intake of Omega-3 fatty acids keeps the heart healthy and also reduces mental decline as one age. Fish is a rich source of Omega-3.
