Anti-Aging Food: Go With The Grain

By:   |   Jul 08, 2018   |   Views: 43   |   Comments: 0

Can eating a diet rich in certain foods actually be a viable anti-aging therapy? Yes, if you go with the grain. Whole grain, that is.

Whole grain foods such as wild and brown rice, oatmeal, whole wheat and rye, bulgar, and even popcorn can be a very effective part of an anti-aging diet. Whole grains are an outstanding source of B vitamins and antioxidants and they provide iron, magnesium, and fiber as well - all of which are important at any age, but absolutely vital to health and well-being as we get older.

Here are just a few ways in which whole grains play an anti-aging role in diet:

Reduced risk of colon cancer - A mammoth 16-year study that monitored over a million participants concluded that consumption of whole grains was inversely associated with the risk of developing colorectal cancer.

Better weight control - A Dutch study of nearly 5,000 older adults found a direct link between increased whole grain consumption and reduced risk of overweight and obesity. Increased whole grain intake was also associated with lower Body Mass Index.

Lower risk of diabetes - An ongoing joint U.S. - Norwegian study has found that whole grains are an important part of what they term a "low risk food pattern" that has been found to lower risk of developing diabetes by as much as 15%.

Improved heart health
- A 20-year Harvard study of more than 20,000 physicians concluded that that those eating two to six servings of whole grain cereal a week reduced their risk of heart failure 22%, while those eating whole grains daily reduced risk by 28%. In addition, a massive Wake Forest University study of more than 285,000 participants found that eating as little as 2.5 servings of whole grain foods daily can lower your risk of cardiovascular disease by almost one-quarter.

Decreased incidence of gum disease - The findings of a 14-year study of more than 34,000 Canadian men conclude that the risk of periodontitis, a serious inflammation of the gums that frequently leads to tooth loss in adults, may be significantly reduced by eating three to four servings of whole grains daily.
