Start Your Anti-Aging Process With These 3 Antioxidant Juice Blends
By Ashley Warwa
Aging is the process of change in a person over time and we all know it is inevitable.
Aging comes down to three factors: vitamin deficiency, free radical damage and toxicity in the body.
Oxidative stress causes aging, such as premature hair loss, greying, brittle hair, nails, wrinkles and poor skin elasticity, as well as early signs of osteoporosis and arthritis.
However, a healthy, balanced diet rich in antioxidants (such as vitamins A, C and E) is essential and will help protect your cells from the oxidation process. If you want to maintain youth and vitality and have skin that glows with radiance, be sure to include:
- High quality nourishment, such as gluten-free whole grains
- Loads of green vegetables
- Orange and yellow veggies
- Lots of dark berries
- Lean protein
- Healthy fats and hydrating liquids, such as fresh veggies juices, water and green tea
Be sure to stay clear of refined sugars, processed foods, dairy and soda, as these are inflammatory and may cause premature aging.
