Anti Aging Nutrition

Anti Aging Nutrition Recommendations

Eat a balanced diet that includes raw vegetables, fruits, grains, seeds, nuts, and quality proteins such as fish and soy foods . Consume less animal protein Include in your diet broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, fish, fruits, whole grains, nuts, oats, seeds, and soybeans Avoid processed foods.

Keep a low-calorie diet to maintain good health as you age; eat only when you are hungry, and consume foods that are fresh or cooked in a way that maintain their nutritional content; also, a diet too high in carbohydrates may increase glucose levels

Consume four or five small meals daily, rather then two or three larger ones

Consume steam-distilled water and drink even when you donít feel thirstyóyour body needs plenty of water

Include garlic, onion, shiitake mushrooms and pearl barley in your diet Cut back on salt and Avoid saturated fats

Avoid caffeine, red meat, white flour, white sugar, chemical food additives, drugs, pesticides, and tap water

Exercise regularlyóExercise is most important in slowing the aging process because it increases the amount of oxygen available to body tissues, a key determinant of energy and stamina; exercise can also ward off conditions such as arthritis, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis, and because it releases endorphins into the body, exercise can also help overcome depression: our brains need exercise as much as our bodies

Keep the colon cleanóThis is crucial for warding off degenerative diseases and to slow the aging process

Allow yourself sufficient sleep

Supplement your diet with one or more of the following nutrients:
Alpha-Lipoic AcidóThis is a powerful antioxidant, both on its own and as a ìrecyclerî of vitamin E and vitamin C, and it can restore the antioxidant properties of these vitamins after they have neutralized free radicals; because ALA is soluble in both water and fat, it can move into all parts of cells to deactivate free radicals
Vitamin B12óAids in cell formation and cellular longevity; also helps prevent nerve damage, maintains fertility, and promotes normal growth and development by maintaining the fatty sheaths that cover and protect nerve endings
Coenzyme AóSupports the immune systemís detoxification of many dangerous substances
Coenzyme Q10óThis antioxidant is structurally similar to vitamin E and plays a crucial role in the generation of cellular energy, is a significant immunologic stimulant, increases circulation, and has anti-aging effects
Glutamic AcidóGlutathione is a protein that is produced in the liver from glutamic acid among other amino acids, and is a powerful antioxidant that inhibits the formation of, and protects against cellular damage from, free radicals
Evening Primrose OilóProvides essential fatty acids which play an important roll in cell formation and are essential for proper brain function; also protect the heart and help keep plaque from adhering to the arteries
Amino AcidsóL-Arginine, L-Carnitine, L-Lysine, L-Methionine, L-Ornithine, and L-Tyrosine are amino acids that protect the heart and liver and which enhance the effectiveness of antioxidants; you can take these amino acids separately, or in an amino acid complex, such as Amino Max, by Nutrina, which is an excellent choice
Multivitamin ComplexóAll nutrients are needed for growth and repair of body tissues; Nutrinaís Daily Fitness Formula and especially Athleteís Formula (it supplies over 60 trace minerals) are excellent choices
Vitamin B-ComplexóThe B vitamins fight depression; aid in transforming proteins, fats, and carbohydrates to energy
Pantothenic Acid (B5)óTake in addition to B-Complex for healthy red blood cells and to aid in the absorption of nutrients
Cholineó Take in addition to B-Complex for healthy red blood cells and to aid in the absorption of nutrients
Inositoló Take in addition to B-Complex for healthy red blood cells and to aid in the absorption of nutrients
PABAó Take in addition to B-Complex for healthy red blood cells and to aid in the absorption of nutrients
Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide)óImportant to proper functioning of the nervous system
Vitamin C with BioflavonoidsóA powerful antioxidant and immune system enhancer that reduces allergies, protects the brain and spinal cord, keeps white blood cells healthy, fights fatigue, and increases energy; further, as a antioxidant it also recharges other antioxidants, such as vitamin E, to keep them potent; the fact that it is soluble in water makes it an efficient free radical scavenger in body fluids
Vitamin EóA potent antioxidant that fights cellular aging by protecting cell membranes; also improves circulation and prolongs the life of red blood cells; prevents the oxidation of fats; it is fat soluble and, since cell membranes are composed of lipids (fats), it prevents the cellsís protective coatings from becoming rancid as a result of the assault of free radicals; use d-alpha-tocopherol form
Calcium and MagnesiumóNecessary to prevent bone loss and for normal heart function
BoronóAids calcium absorption and brain function
Chromium PicolinateóImproves insulin efficiency
Lecithin Granules or CapsulesóProtects nervous system cells and is a fat emulsifier
MelatoninóThis hormone is an efficient free radical scavenger, and while most antioxidants work only in certain parts of certain cells, melatonin can penetrate the mitochondriaóthe cellsís ìpower plantsîóand appears to have the ability to protect it from free radical damage
SeleniumóThis trace mineral increases antioxidant enzyme levels in cells
Vitamin AóThis is a potent antioxidant
ZincóThis mineral performs the antioxidant function of preventing fat oxidation
GarlicóThis versatile healing herb also has antioxidant properties and helps the immune function protect the heart
NonióThis is a plant that grows in Hawaii with fruit that has many benefits and have been used for thousands of years to ease pain and inflammation, relieve joint problems, promote cellular regeneration, boost the immune system, and improve digestion
HorsetailóThis is an excellent source of silica, a form of the trace mineral silicon which is important for maintaining the strength of bones and connective tissue
Saw PalmettoóAids in preventing cancer and, for men, in improving benign (noncancerous) prostate enlargement
Wild YamóContains natural steroids that have a rejuvenating effect
Ginkgo BilobaóThis herb has powerful antioxidant effect in the brain, retina, and cardiovascular system, and is well known for its ability to enhance circulation
