Anti Aging Foods
Ann Kulze, MD discusses 5 super star anti aging foods – wild Alaskan salmon, walnuts, freshly brewed tea, ginger root, and dark leafy greens. Dr. Ann is author of Dr. Ann’s 10 Step Diet. Incorporate Dr. Ann’s anti aging diet into your nutrition plan to achieve the best health possible.
Dr. Ann talks about the vitamin D found in salmon. A hot topic in anti aging medicine is telomere length. See “Telomeres: a Key to Longevity“. Another important health benefit of vitamin D is that it also slows the rate of telomere shortening along with the omega 3 fatty acids found in fish.
Green leafy vegetables are high in nitrites and nitrates. These enhance nitric oxide production. Nitric oxide improves blood flow by opening up our blood vessels. Tea is high in epigallocatechin, a potent antioxidant that limits cell injury.
Like fish, walnuts are high in omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are natural anti-inflammatories. They improve hormone-receptor sensitivity and facilitate cell to cell communication in the brain.
Improve your health and add these anti aging foods to your diet.
