Anti-ageing nutrients: Foods you must add to your diet to slow down aging

What you eat can have a huge impact on how you look and how fast or slow you age. Weather of smoking and alcohol could restrict the flow of oxygen and nutrients to skin cells and cause wrinkles and other signs of aging, on the other hand, having a diet rich in antioxidants could promote longevity, delaying aging. Similarly, eating junk food could cause inflammation that could exacerbate the aging process by causing wrinkles and skin damage. Eating whole foods: whole grains, whole wheat and brown rice, eggs, vegetables, nuts, fruits, and some spices can have a positive effect on the mind, body, and senses.
