Only a time machine can bring back the exuberance of being 20 again! However, you still have no reason to feel all low and lost. There are some ways which can help you fight aging, and hence, bring back your confidence in yourself.
Let’s take a quick look at these top 5 wonder foods that are greatly effective in retaining the quality of your skin:
#1. Hijiki: Rich in iodine, this black sea-vegetable has 40% fiber in it. This fiber helps to regulate hormones and improve the detoxification of liver. It also helps in synthesizing the thyroid hormone. The texture of hijiki is a lot like pasta, and it is cooked in a similar fashion. Just soak it in water for about 15 minutes, and then boil it for 10-15 minutes. The best way to have it is tossing it in a bowl of green salad.
#2. Chlorophyll: It is the green pigment present in all green plants. And consuming chlorophyll is the best way to negate your dietary sins. So be it the alcohol, the acidity of coffee or a fish high in mercury, there is no better way to remove the toxins than chlorophyll. You don’t have to chew green leaves however, as it is available in a concentrated liquid form. Add a little in a bottle of water or a cup of green tea, and enjoy a toxin-free life.
#3. Arctic Char: Arctic char has all the benefits of salmon. But the environment-friendly manner in which they are farmed makes them a more preferable choice. The omega-3 fatty acids in arctic char prevents the formation of wrinkles. Arctic char not only enhances the functioning of the brain cells, but also protects skin from sun damage and improves eyesight. Like salmon, there are numerous ways to cook this magical fish.
#4. Hemp Seeds: Hemp seeds are the only eatable source of GLA (Gamma Linoleic Acid), which helps in enhancing the radiance and firmness of your skin. Rich in protein (about 5 grams per tablespoon), hemp seeds synthesize elastin and collagen. It’s always better to eat them raw. Just pop in a few seeds in a bowl of salad or just simply chew them down, they are always beneficial to your skin.
#5. Avocado: The non-saturated fat present in avocado protects skin cells from radical damage and enhances the texture of the skin. And not only this, avocado is super-effective in improving bone density. Moreover, like hijiki, avocado is rich in fiber and thus removes harmful toxins which are agents of aging. It’s best to have an avocado raw. Surf the Internet and choose the recipe you like best.
