Make changes in diet to fight ageing

Published on: 8:20 pm - Tuesday | May 15, 2018

The key to ageing gracefully is simple – eat healthy. So make changes in your diet instead of going for Botox for wrinkle treatment, say experts.


Experts  have a few suggestions:


* Include certain foods in the diet which are rich in vitamins like riboflavin, niacin and cyanocobalamin.

Exclude poor quality of food which causes inflammation and ultimately affects the skin.


* Hydrate the body so as to remove the toxins from the body.


* Skin collagen gets damaged when there is high consumption of sugar and processed carbohydrates, while foods like fruits and vegetables are good for skin.


* Deep fried food can add to inflammation. On the other hand, vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low-fat dairy and lean protein can help fight inflammation.


* Lettuce, broccoli, spinach, tomato, watermelon, grapefruit, guava, salmon, chickpea, oatmeal and brown rice help in curbing inflammation.


* A long way to preventing wrinkles is to eat food items like carrots that are loaded with vitamins.


* Almonds and walnuts are rich in Vitamin E and help to fight skin problems.


* Green tea has powerful anti-oxidants to protect skin from damage.


* Yogurt has probiotics that nourish skin from inside and outside.


* Honey is hygroscopic in nature.


* All berries are healthy anti-oxidants. They kill radicals that are in bodies, damaging DNA and cells and causing premature ageing. Berries can fight damages caused by environmental pollutants and toxins.


* Turmeric acts as anti-oxidants.


* Alcohol should be avoided as it creates free radicals which damage cells and accelerates ageing.
