The Best Foods to Slow Aging

Friday, March 13, 2020

Longevity scientists are discovering the power of certain fruits and vegetables to slow down the aging process.

1. Broccoli Sprouts. Broccoli sprouts contain very high levels of sulforaphanes which activate our detox and anti-inflammatory responses. Aim for 100mg of broccoli sprouts or 40mg of broccoli sprout powder daily.

2. Pomegranate. Pomegranates help boost mitophagy. Sip pomegranate juice or eat pomegranate arils a few times a week.

3. Spinach. Spinach delivers a healthy dose of folate helping to protect telomeres and aid in DNA and cell synthesis. Focus on eating folate-rich foods daily.

4. Strawberries. Strawberries surpass any other food with their fisetin content which helps to kill senescent cells in the body. Aim for ½ cup strawberries every day or multiple times a week.
