Let us look at what nutritious foods can help slow down the aging process:

1. Organically-grown vegetables—they are far more nutritious than the food that comes in cans and tins. No pesticides are used to grow them, so there will be no danger of harmful chemicals becoming part of your meals.

2. Green leafy vegetables—they contain a lot of iron and enhance your immunity.

3. Brightly colored vegetables and fruits—apart from nutritional benefits, they also provide you with a large amount of anti-aging oxidants to battle the enemies that enter your cells.

4. Nuts, extra-virgin olive oil and barley grains—they repair and rejuvenate cells that are damaged. They also give more strength to your immune system.

5. Unsalted nuts—they do not make you nutty, but healthy! Take around one ounce of unsalted nuts every day, and see the difference in your vitality. They contain healthy fats and vitamin B. Of course, if you are allergic, you will have to avoid them.

6. Fiber—this is good for the digestion. You should consume around 25 grams of fiber each day, if you wish to be absolutely fit and energetic. Combine it with eight ounces of water, and you will never suffer from constipation problems. Fiber makes your belly seem full, thus preventing you from overeating.

7. Digestion. The lactobacillus acidophilus bacteria present in yoghurt are very beneficial for your health.

8. Fish—omega-3 fatty acids are linked with proper functioning of the heart and the brain. They can be obtained in plenty from the salmon fish. If you are a vegetarian, you may go in for capsules containing fish oils. To avoid tasting the fish, you can go in for capsules containing deodorizers. If you are allergic to any kind of fish, you might like to tray flax oil; this has omega-3 fatty acids too.

9. Water—it is the elixir of life. With eight ounces inside your belly each day, you will have no cause to complain of constipation or difficulty with digestion. The more water you drink, the less likely you are to overeat. Most important of all, water irrigates every cell and flushes out the toxins. So the aging process gets delayed. Apart from the above-mentioned, there are many more foodstuffs that are extremely beneficial for health; they provide that additional zing and zest to your life.

There are certain foods, however, which are best avoided as they contain large amounts of trans fats and saturated fats. Even sugary stuff and refined flour is to be consumed in lesser quantities, as they increase your weight. None of them really provide any kind of healthy nutrition, plus they make you feel lazy and lethargic.

Too much of such foodstuffs is an open invitation to free radicals to enter your cells. And the havoc that will result is well known to you already. So, chart out a balanced nutritional diet and follow it up with an active lifestyle. Tone up your muscles and allow large amounts of oxygen to enter your body cells—you will remain ageless!
