We have all been looking for that elusive anti wrinkle cure. We want creams, serums, extreme changes without extreme procedures. There are unfortunately no natural cures that can provide overnight results as a surgery or botox procedure would. But we have found a few foods that may prevent wrinkles or even diminish some fine lines.
The first are blueberries. Blueberries are packed full of antioxidants and they are truly the best anti wrinkle food available. They are also packed with nutrients and they are packed with fructose sugar, which can satisfy sugar cravings as well as providing the proper amount of sugar. With this high amount of insoluble fiber, it can actually promote weight loss without reducing the nutritional value.
The second is beans. They are one of the major sources of plant protein. Peas, beans, and chickpeas are generally known as legumes. Generally, they have about 215 calories per cup, and those have the highest concentration of protein combined with the lowest level of fat in any food. They are also known to be high in potassium while simultaneously being low in sodium. Studies show that eating these on a regular basis can lower cholesterol levels.
The third is tomatoes. A medium sized tomato accounts for only 25 calories on average, and they are high in potassium and fiber, while being low in fat and sodium. Tomatoes and strawberries significantly reduce the chances of dying of cancer, partly due to their potent content of antioxidants. And even canned, crushed, peeled, whole, or stewed tomatoes can contribute to these goals while flavoring sauces, casseroles, soups, etc. Spaghetti sauce can contribute to your diet efforts.
Fourth, you will find tofu. This is another food packed with protein and low in fat. It is essentially tasteless and takes on the taste of the food around it. It is otherwise known as soybean curd, and it is also rich in calcium and iron. There are different varieties, and it can easily be implemented into any diet.
Then you will find cabbage. Cabbage is not appealing to some, but at only 33 calories per cup of cooked cabbage, it is truly a wonder food. It can be found in sauerkraut, coleslaw(the calories depend on how much dressing is used), and in many other sources. Eating cabbage once a week can reduce your risks of developing colon cancer. Greece and Japan, countries with the highest amount of cabbage in their diet, also show the lowest rates of earth death and colon cancer in the world.
Finally, there is omega 3. We have all heard of these. You can find them in salmon and other various sources. They are called the healthy fats or the “good fats”, and if eaten from the abalone, you will only consume 90 calories, or with the herring, 236 calories. It has been known to lower the risk of heart disease, reduce blood pressure, lower cholesterol, relieve inflammation and stiff joints, and may not only reduce wrinkles, but may also improve your hair.
Overall, all these foods are high in nutrients, low in fat, and they can contribute to healthier skin. Foods like blueberries can kill free radicals that may be damaging skin, and omega 3’s can moisturize and supplement the skin without making it oily. If you are looking for an everyday way to supplement your diet and reduce the common signs of aging, these are a few of the foods that can help.
