Kiel also shared with us the best foods for anti-aging.
Omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids are essential for several of our body’s processes.It’s vital for brain functions, but it’s also what provides us with healthy hair, glowing skin and strong nails.
Hydration- Water is imperative for every single cell in the body. Skin dehydration is an indicatory of aging, but hydration doesn’t just refer to water. You can include sparking water, teas, or fruits and vegetables with a high water content to reach your daily hydration needs.
Eat a rainbow- Strong evidence shows that eating fruits and vegetables lower your risk of heart disease and stroke, but can also assist with physical signs of aging. The color of your fruits and vegetables translates into the vitamins and phytonutrients they contain. Make sure to eat a variety of produce to better utilize the powerful effects of their antioxidants and prevent free radicals from damaging your cells and increasing inflammation.
All of which leads to aging. Eating seasonally can help increase the variety of nutrients in your diet and encourage you to get out of your diet’s “comfort zone.”
The power of protein. Along with fatty acids, protein has shown to benefit hair, skin and nails.
Collagen has become recently popular due to its ability to provide structure to tissues, improve skin elasticity and increase the skin’s hydration.
