The question, ‘can we reverse the aging process’ is touted by many beauty product sellers as a big yes, providing we use their products. However, is it truly possible? Are there things we can do ourselves to reverse the damage and subsequent signs of aging that may have already occurred in our body?
Science is Working on It
Japanese researchers have discovered something that could either delay the aging process or even possibly bring back the youthful look that many people long for. The research team found a significant link between the regulation of two specific genes and the process of aging. The researchers compared the functioning level of specific cells of children aged 12 and elderly individuals aged 80 and above. As expected, the cells from the older participants were found to have reduced cellular respiration.
However, they were surprised to find that the cells of these older participants did not show more damage in their DNA structure than the cells taken from the children. So the cells were not damaged, but simply operating at a slower rate. This new finding led them to theorize that through genetic reprogramming of the cells, it may be possible to reverse the process of aging. To be able to find out if this is possible, the researchers are experimenting still, however, the findings from this study have led many people to be extremely hopeful.
Foods that Help You Delay the Aging Process
Meanwhile, instead of merely relying on what scientists can do in order to reverse the signs of aging, why not take matters into your own hand. You have the power to make changes in your lifestyle that will provide benefits to health and appearance, both of which will add to your quality of life. One proven way is to improve your diet. Remove items that you know aren’t beneficial to your health, even though they are tasty or habitual. Add foods that you know are good for you. Experiment with preparation and make these good foods your main foods. You can eat your way back through the years. Ditch processed foods and go for ‘real whole foods’ only.
The following list of foods are foods that have the power to tap into the younger side of you, help keep your youth and help reverse the signs of aging.
Eggs are great sources of protein and don’t be concerned about eggs and their cholesterol content either. It is now known that eggs are not as harmful to heart health as was once claimed! Another benefit of eating eggs is that they contain choline, a nutrient that plays a role in protecting the brain against inflammation. This translates to a lowered risk of contracting Alzheimer’s disease.
Eggs are often called a ‘perfect protein’. Replacing sugar-rich foods with good protein such as eggs, especially early in the day, is a terrific step in any anti-aging diet.
Avocados are popular for their delicious taste and healthy fat content. They are rich in glutathione which is a powerful antioxidant in fighting against the signs of aging. These antioxidants not only help you flush out toxins but in doing so they also help prevent the early onset of wrinkles.
These little super berries are giants in terms of anti-aging nutrients! They are loaded with vitamin C which is beneficial for improving blood circulation. Blueberries are rich in potassium that helps combat fluid retention and puffiness and they contain natural salts and other minerals that serve as your weapons against aging.
Your anti-aging diet may not be complete without green tea. This tea is an excellent source of antioxidants that help lengthen the life and vitality of your cells. The regular intake of green tea translates to a younger you, both inside and out.
Kidney beans are packed with zinc, fiber, potassium, and protein. All this goodness in tiny little pulses! Adding kidney beans into your anti-aging diet can lower your risks for heart disease as they help keep your cholesterol within healthy levels too.
