Super Foods that Fight Aging

A good diet not only improves your health but also impacts the way you look. Foods rich in anti oxidants and vitamins can actually help to reverse aging.

Calorie restriction, or eating less than what you actually require, has an anti aging effect contrary to what most people believe. Experiments carried out on lab animals have reported increased longevity as a result of calorie restriction. Whether these results can be extrapolated to humans is anyone’s guess as they remain to be proved. But there is reason to believe that what holds good for these animals would prove to be good for humans too.

Some of the popular anti aging diets are the GI diet, raw diet and the Okinawan diet. Some people swear by the Mediterranean diet to remain young.

Most anti aging diets have been whipped up from the belief that calorie restriction increases lifespan and promotes youthfulness. These diets are designed to replenish the depleting stock of cells by supplying nutrition for new ones. There is an emphasis on not missing out on essential nutrients. Unhealthy dieting can aggravate signs of aging and can do more harm than good.

The Glycemic Index (GI) diet, which is popular among dieters recommends a balanced diet of multi-grain breads, oats, fruits, soy drinks, vegetables and other nourishments as a part of the dieting regime. The GI diet is reputed to restore health and visibly reduce the signs of aging.

The secret to younger looking you is in your blood. The healthier your blood is, the younger you look and feel.
It is my friend's secret. I recently invade her bedroom and found the device she's using, I asked her for reviews and did some research as well. The secret is microcirculation of your blood. The device is transdermal, non invasive so zero pain. I am on it for a week now and I feel good the more i use it. It is called doxyva it delivers is vaporized purified CO2. ;]

As a Darjeeling Tea lover I'd suggest that Teas, especially green teas and white teas aid in speeding up the process of ageing throughout the body due to the presence rich antioxcidants. Also other benefits associated with drinking them cannot be overlooked
