How Fish Oils Stops Aging And Wrinkles
One of the key culprits of aging is Inflammation -- Chronic Inflammation to be exact. Some scientists even believe that chronic inflammation can lead to heart disease, arthritis, diabetes and a host of other age related maladies.
So what does this have to do with skin care and wrinkles? Well, our skin is merely a reflection of what is happening inside our bodies. You can easily tell a healthy person from an un-healthy one by merely looking at their skin.
I am a big proponent that health and beauty starts from within. I heard it said that if you do not go with-in, you go with-out. I firmly believe this with all my heart.
What I would like to share with you is how with a few simple changes on what you put in your body will go a long way in helping you look your absolute best.
Eating anti-oxidant rich foods and taking essential oils -- fish oils to be precise will be the basis for fighting chronic inflammation and of course, maintaining beautiful wrinkle free skin.
Anti-oxidant rich foods are very easy to spot, they have vibrant colors. Dark green leafy vegetables such as spinach and kale, broccoli, asparagus are all loaded with anti-oxidants and rank very low on the glycemic index which is beneficial to maintaining your ideal blood-sugar level. A high blood sugar level releases insulin which in turn produces inflammatory chemicals. Â And inflammation is our enemy because it aids in premature aging.
Other foods that contain lots of anti-oxidants are fruits such as blueberries, strawberries, cantaloupe and honeydew melons, kiwi, peaches, pears and plums.
Now, for your protein fresh fish and poultry are a very good source of high quality protein. Quality protein helps make your skin glow and gives you healthier hair. As for red meat, if you cannot avoid it entirely, you must limit it severely because it encourages inflammation.
Protein is vital for repairing our cells due to the constant damage done to it by free radicals, another aging culprit. However, it is important to get the right protein and this is where fish should be a staple in your diet.
Fish such as salmon, mackerel, snapper, bass, trout, and herring are among the ones that carry the omega-3 essential fatty acids that our bodies require. Essential fatty acids or EFA is very important for our health. Our cells are unable to synthesize these and therefore it must be supplied from our diets. If you are not a big fan of fish or unable to include it regularly to your diet then, you definitely want to take a quality supplement that can provide you with these essential oils. (see below for my recommendation)
Omega-3 fish oil is very important because it stops inflammation. Understand our goal is to slow down the aging process by stopping chronic inflammation and fish oils is a key factor to achieving that goal.
By incorporating some of these foods in your diet, you can severely slow the aging process and your skin will thank you for it by providing you with a healthy, youthful glow. Not to mention the wonderful energy you will get, as a side benefit.Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â
