Scientists have proposed that, active ‘free radicals’ present in the body causes damage to body cells. This results in accelerated aging as shown by: Cataracts, heart disease, cancers and physical appearance eg. wrinkles
So how can we defy aging? Let's look at the 4 ways:
Antioxidants and phytochemicals are capable of scavenging and neutralizing free radicals, protecting body cells from damage.
Colorful fruits and vegetables, blueberries, raspberries, tomato, tea, carrots, kale, beet roots, garlic, turmeric, wholegrains
Healthy fats (polyunsaturated) are found to be protective against cardiovascular diseases and cell structures, ultimately affecting how you look!
Fatty fishes (Salmon, tuna), avocado, nuts (walnuts, almonds), vegetable oils (olive oil, cornflower oil)
Our body is mainly made up of water! Insufficient intake cause our cells to be dehydrated and wrinkled up! Many bodily functions also require water for normal function
Water, fruits and vegetables
SLEEP One of the most important lifestyle factor that prevents ageing! Aim to get at least 8 hours of sleep per night for optimal ‘beauty sleep’
EXERCISE Being physically active not only makes you looks good, it makes you feel good as well! Aim for at least 150 mins of exercise per week to feel the difference!
