Anti-aging benefits of eating well to maintain a youthful appearance and healthy skin.
Most people are already aware that eating a well balanced healthy diet.
Is a key role in staying youthful and healthy.
Wrinkles and aging related skincare issues occur from the inside.
And no amount of lotions or creams can fix what’s been damaged inside the body.
Sure, they can cover the symptoms for a while.
But the reality is that the age old saying ‘ you are what you eat’ really is true.
Radiant, glowing skin comes from the inside.
The same is true of strong healthy nails and hair, and bright, clear eyes.
All signs of youth that can be yours with the proper diet.
That’s not to say skincare is not important.
As it definitely plays an important part of your anti-aging regime.
But it’s secondary to diet.
No amount of topical skin care can compete with a pro-aging diet
That’s destroying your body from the inside.
Although we’ve all heard we need to “eat right” to stay healthy and fight aging.
There is a major problem with this extremely vague advice.
Much of what we are taught as being a healthy diet is false.
The abbreviation for the Standard American Diet (SAD) is often joked about because it truly is sad.
What many Americans are taught to eat as part of a healthy diet is not healthy at all.
Plus our grocery stores are stocked with processed junk that’s marketed as healthy food.
But in reality is toxic to our health and well being.
By the time you finish reading this post.
You will know not only what is healthy versus unhealthy.
But also how to get the maximum anti-aging benefits from your diet.
As well as the age accelerators to avoid.
As mentioned before, the food you put into your body every day.
Determines the rate at which you age.
Some foods damage the body, causing it to age faster, while others build and repair it.
First, I’ll give you a mini biology lesson to explain what happens to the body.
When age accelerating foods and beverages are consumed.
Just to help you really grasp the importance of what you’re learning.
Then, you’ll get specific action steps.
So you know what to do about it and can take charge of your health from now on.
Glycation is one of the major processes that cause early aging and disease.
It happens with protein and sugar react with each other in the bloodstream.
And form a thing called Advanced Glycation End Products (commonly abbreviated as AGEs).
If you think about what happens to meat as your cooking it (the way it gets hard and brown on the outside).
This same thing is what happens to your body from glycation.
Glycation quite literally ‘hardens’ the tissues in your body.
What is the result?
- Loss of skin moisture and suppleness
- Arteries hardening
- Kidney failure
- Muscles are less flexible
- Nerves are damaged
The proteins most prone to this glycation attack.
Are the exact ones you need for a youthful complexion.
Which are collagen and elastin.
After these proteins are linked with the sugars, AGEs form.
And cause the body to age faster.
In short, glycation attacks collagen and elastin fibers.
Increases inflammation in the body and creates free radicals.
Which results in wrinkles and saggy skin.
Unfortunately, even healthy foods will turn to glucose while being digested.
And some glycation will always occur, BUT it will happen in a much less damaging way.
Plus, many healthy foods have nutrients that fight the formation of AGEs.
I’ll share more about what you can do to reverse this damage in my next post.
In the meantime, there’s a video I highly recommend watching and paying close attention to.
Because there is some shocking information about the beauty industry you’ve likely never heard before.
