Foods Rich in Vitamin C Helps to Prevent Aging

Food rich in Vitamin C may help prevent aging of the skin, suggests a study by British scientists.

Researchers examined links between nutrient intake and skin aging in 4,025 women aged 40-74 years using data from the first National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.


Aging of the skin was defined as having a wrinkled appearance, senile dryness, and skin atrophy.

The study by nutritional epidemiologist Maeve C. Cosgrove and other researchers in Britain found that those who ate plenty of Vitamin C-rich foods had fewer wrinkles than people whose diets contained little of the vitamin.

Higher Vitamin C intakes were associated with a lower likelihood of a wrinkled appearance, said the study published in the October issue of The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

Promoting healthy dietary behaviour may have an additional benefit for skin appearance in addition to other health outcomes, the researchers said.
