If we suppose that there is someone who claims to have a magic potion to keep people young forever, we might rush to him to take it. Unfortunately, there is no magic bullet or fountain of youth.
According to nutritionists, there is nothing you can do to reverse the aging process directly. However, there are some superfoods that can help slow those inevitable negative effects of aging.
“Healthy aging requires a balanced diet that includes a mix of high-fiber carbohydrates, lean proteins, and anti-inflammatory fats,” Lisa Moskovitz, CEO of the NY Nutrition Group, tells It This Not That. With all this in mind, when asked to make the best choice, Moskovitz recommends wild-caught salmon to keep your mind and body strong after the age of 60.
For heart and bone health
According to Moskovitz, it’s all about the omega-3 fatty acids found in wild salmon, which make it the best food to eat. Fighting inflammation and improving heart health and cognitive function are the result of a high dose of omega-3 fatty acids.
Moskovitz also highlights that “salmon is also a great source of muscle-maintaining protein and restoring collagen, as well as bone-building calcium and vitamin D.”
On a consistent basis, the benefits of adding wild salmon to your diet can seem never-ending thanks to all the nutrients combined in every meal. If you’d like to start adding some salmon to your diet but aren’t quite sure where to start, check out our favorite recipes that use this seafood.
Moskovitz also recommends the “replacement of refined grains, such as white flour or highly processed bread, with whole grains, such as quinoa and brown rice” when it comes to slowing the aging process.
“Not only does it provide additional digestion-regulating fiber, which can combat age-related constipation, and promote healthy energy levels, but it also contains additional phytochemicals that protect against oxidative stress, which speeds up the aging process,” Moskovitz says.
Moskovitz recommends quinoa seeds and brown rice. They’re an easy source of those digestive fibers and phytochemicals, and they’re ready to eat in a matter of minutes.
Combining wild salmon with some quinoa and brown rice seems to make the perfect anti-aging meal, not to mention it’s delicious and filling too.
