7 Anti Aging Foods High In Antioxidant For Prevention Of Chronic Diseases


Food rich in antioxidants can benefit people from all age groups. For seniors, they can help offset premature aging and some chronic diseases. It can also help seniors build up their immune systems and fight off illnesses and flu.

Fresh Fruit

Good sources of fresh fruit with antioxidants include pomegranates, berries, red grapes, and prunes. More recently, a new and more exotic resource has been becoming more popular – the acai berry which you can find in juices and powders.

Vegetables

When making vegetable choices, go green – dark green. Substitute your light green vegetables like lettuce with spring mix or spinach. Other vegetables rich in antioxidants include red and yellow bell peppers, carrots, and broccoli. When eating your vegetables, going raw is your best option.

Oils and Flavoring

Adding the right flavoring to your cooking can boost your antioxidant intake. It is recommended to use extra virgin olive oil. Use the following spices – rosemary, marjoram, sage, and thyme. Another two sources of antioxidants are garlic and ginger.

Getting soy isoflavones in your diet may help reduce bone loss and less bone loss generally means fewer fractures.

Nuts

Choose nuts as your snack choice. Just be cautious about how much you intake since calories are high for nuts. Recommended choices include almonds, pecans, and peanuts.

Beans

Vegetarians have been toting the benefits of beans as many substitute them for their meat intake. Red and kidney beans are high in protein and rich in antioxidants.

Whole Grains

Make the move to whole grain choices when it comes to pasta, bread, and rice. Better for you and more flavorful.

Tea

This is one you’ve been hearing for years. Green or black tea is a great source of antioxidants.
