Foods for Disease Prevention and Wrinkle Reduction

Do Foods for Disease Prevention Exist?

As a modern woman, you have plenty of tasks on your plate every day.Smooth and healthy However, it could be what is not on your plate at mealtime that works against your dietary efforts to maintain a youthful look and stave off the precursor of diseases. Hippocrates’ espousal, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food,” rings true to this day, and these functional foods for disease prevention are a delicious and affordable way to do just that.

Avocado: The Super Fruit

Antioxidant rich avocados fight free radicals to help keep the body’s tissues and organs healthy. Full of potassium and folate, avocado is a superior food that is effective in reducing the risks associated with heart attacks and strokes. This super fruit is common in facial masks, where its high concentration of Vitamin E and antioxidants work wonders to reduce fine lines and help prevent the onset of wrinkles.

Oats: Healthy and Simple

Help eliminate dryness by feeding your skin with cooked oats. Create a soothing facemask, and allow this functional food’s nourishment to soak in deeply. Protein, iron, potassium, phosphates and silicon are exceptional nutrients to minimize the appearance of wrinkles externally, while internally, the b-glucan soluble fiber in oats reduces low-density lipoproteins, or bad cholesterol, to cut back the risks of coronary disease. To boot, starting the day off with oatmeal or a rolled oat mixture creates a sense of fullness that is beneficial for those seeking to shed extra pounds.

Garlic for a Healthy Heart and Cancer Prevention

According to a long-term Iowa Women’s Health Study of 41,000 subjects, eating a serving of fresh garlic daily reduces the risks of colon cancer by 35 percent. Additional studies show a strong correlation between the consumption of garlic and the prevention of cancerous tumors spreading in both men and women. Allicin, garlic’s active ingredient, is a powerful antibacterial and antioxidant that helps your skin maintain a healthy, youthful appearance.

Flax Seeds for Omega 3s

Beyond reducing blood pressure to aid the coronary system, flax seeds contain more Omega 3 fatty acids than any seed found in nature. Sprinkle a few of these virtually tasteless seeds onto any food to reap the benefits including the softening of skin and a reduction in the likelihood of developing breast cancer or tumors within the mammary glands.

Incorporating a few weekly or daily portions of these foods for disease prevention will not only increase your health on the inside, but also will keep you looking stellar on the outside – so dish them up and reap the rewards.

    Hi! I was horrible tkiang care of my skin in my teens and up to about a year ago. I tanned way too much, I never took my make up off at night, and I have never had a really good diet not to mention I’m a recovering addict, which means I did a number to my body. I didn’t really start getting noticeable lines on my forehead, crowfeet area, or around my mouth until about 3 years ago and I’m going to be 29 in July. What seems to be noticeable lines to you, are not so noticeable to everyone else, trust me. You are your number one critic. However, you need to realize that everyone’s skin is different, and even if you did take care of your skin from the get-go you would probably still be having this same problem.My best suggestion to you, be sure to clean your face thoroughly every night. I suggest you buy something like a Neutrogena Wave Sonic Spinning Power Cleaner. Once you thoroughly clean your face, put on an oil free night moisturizer. I feel like anti-wrinkle cream isn’t as effective as they claim. If you insist on wearing an anti-wrinkle cream, then get an oil free anti-wrinkle night moisturizer. I suggest Olay age defying night cream because it doesn’t smell like an old lady.After showering in the morning and thoroughly cleaning your face, put on an all day facial moisturizer cream with SPF before you put on your make-up.When it comes to make-up, don’t get the really thick stuff because even though it looks great when you put it on, it ends up enhancing the looks of your wrinkles.I hear the average age to start botox is 23 years old. These fine lines give you character, they don’t make you look old. It’s when you hit my age that some of these lines aren’t so fine anymore. Drink water and take care of your skin. If you smoke, then all of this is pointless because you are prohibiting oxygen from reaching your skin cells. Hope this helped!
