Products that prolong youth

All people tend to strive to have perfect health and live forever. And if the first desire to cope is relatively easy, if you monitor your body and its needs, then with eternal life is not so simple. Of course, at one time, Count Cagliostro created the elixir of youth and, according to rumors, is still alive, however, nobody knows the recipe for this elixir.

However, as scientists say, if you follow all the recommendations of specialists, including nutritionists and geneticists, it is quite possible to prolong youth. The main thing is to know what and how much to use, what kind of sport to do, what kind of lifestyle to lead.

In matters of sports and lifestyle, everyone has the right to decide for himself, but in matters of diet or even normal nutrition, you can listen to some recommendations. Nutritionists together and geneticists have compiled a list of products that are able to prolong youth and not allow the body to grow old not only ahead of time, but also within a certain period:

1. Eggs. It is known that eggs are a source of vitamin D, lutein, trace elements useful for vision, as well as choline, on which the function of brain cells and the state of the cardiovascular system depend. In addition, one egg is as much as six grams of protein, which is necessary for constant renewal of skin cells and tissues of the whole body. And finally, the immune system depends on the proteins: their quality and quantity.

2. Leaf greens, for example, spinach, cabbage, and other crops. They also, like eggs, are sources of lutein and zeaxanthin (useful for vision). Studies have shown that daily consumption of leafy greens can prevent aging and muscle tissue degeneration, such a diet rich in antioxidants. In addition, spinach provides the body with folic acid, which is indispensable for short-term memory and normal heart function. In addition to these properties, leafy greens are unique in that they absorb free radicals, which, in turn, can cause the development of cancer cells.

3. Broccoli stands out among its counterparts in terms of rejuvenation of the body that is capable of treating or preventing the development of diseases. All this is possible due to the high content of isothiocyanates in the vegetable composition, which are necessary for the fight against cancer. Broccoli can also turn on and off genes that can fight and, conversely, provoke the development of cancer.

4. Blueberry is not only an excellent dessert, it is unique in its kind. Due to the fact that its composition contains a record amount of vitamins and nutrients, it can be considered a champion among fruits and vegetables. Blueberries also contain antioxidants that fight against free radicals. For this reason, experts recommend instead of harmful chocolate, with a minimum amount of cocoa butter in the composition and the maximum amount of sugar, eat a handful of these berries. You can freeze it in the freezer in the kitchen will be cheap to eat healthy products in the winter.

So, according to scientists, the inclusion in the diet of these products will rejuvenate the body and give, if not eternal youth, then at least a long and happy life, in which there is no room for diseases and ailments.
