These 7 Anti-aging Drinks Will Level Up Your Health!
When it comes to curbing or reducing the effects of aging, any natural strategy is exciting and healthy. Create some anti-aging drinks, then you really have something to cheer about!
Let’s talk about those beverages that, in addition to improving health in general, are a treasure trove of antioxidants, moisturizing substances, and vitamin C, ideal for preventing wrinkles and recovering skin elasticity.
As you can well imagine, there are no traditional remedies for aging. We can adopt good habits, and use beauty treatments, but, ultimately we have no choice but to accept the passing of the years.
However, we should never take a passive attitude toward aging; it is better to take an active approach with its primary purpose to feel good, care for ourselves and pay attention to what we eat.
Today we make you a proposal: drink one or more of the following natural juices every day. They are healthy and will help reduce the effects of time. While they can not turn back or stop time, these 7 anti-aging drinks will improve your health and help in adding more time to the clock.
1. Tomato juice
Tomato juice contains a particular antioxidant: lycopene.
This carotenoid and phytochemical pigment is a true specialist in fighting free radicals (molecules or ions that can damage healthy cells, attack our immune system and accelerate aging).
Furthermore, lycopene helps us to obtain a firmer and more toned skin by inhibiting the activity of collagenase, a type of enzyme that, year after year, degrades the collagen in our skin.
2. Kale juice
Kale juice cannot be missing when it comes to slowing down aging.
Its leaves are rich in vitamin K, which helps prevent heart disease and osteoporosis.
Kale offers us several nutrients, including:
- Mineral salts (manganese, copper, calcium, potassium, iron, magnesium)
- Vitamins (B1, B2, B6, E)
- Omega 3 fatty acids
It is, therefore, a multi-vitamin vegetable with high antioxidant action.
3. Eggplant juice or water
In our space, we have explained several times why we consider eggplant one of the healthiest vegetables.
An excellent way to take advantage of its properties is to cook and store the cooking water.
Some cut it into cubes and then centrifuge it and mix the juice with that of an apple. In this way, the flavor certainly improves.
Eat it however you like because eggplant is one of the most decadent foods in antioxidants.
4. Red grape juice
With their peel and seeds, Grapes have long been used for packaging beauty products to slow down aging.
Its secret lies in resveratrol, an antioxidant in blackberries, blueberries, and currants, with decisive anti-aging action.
The best thing to get the maximum benefit from grapes is to wait for the season.
Instead of buying bottled juice, try making it at home: this way, you can be sure that the peel and seeds are also present. Don’t discard anything!
5. Pomegranate juice: excellent!
The pomegranate is one of the best fruits to keep at home whenever its season arrives.
It helps reduce bad cholesterol, is ideal for fighting bacteria in the bladder and kidneys, and is a good remedy for preventing wrinkles.
The pomegranate fruit helps us produce urolithin A, a molecule known for its ability to regenerate mitochondria and take care of our cells.
Please take advantage of it whenever you see it at the market or supermarket.
6. Watermelon juice
Although it is commonly thought that watermelon is composed only of water and sugar, it is a fruit that provides a high amount of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
Watermelon is highly moisturizing, a feature much appreciated by our skin.
Furthermore, we cannot forget that it is very rich in vitamin A, which is necessary because it helps renew the epidermis and maintain the right degree of hydration, fighting dry skin and wrinkles.
We recommend the yellow kiwi. If you mix it in a blender with an apple and a little lemon, you will get a fabulous anti-aging drink.
The antioxidant compounds in kiwifruit help to firm the skin and delay the formation of classic expression lines.
Its power lies first in its high content of vitamins C and E, which help reduce skin damage caused by free radicals.
So … What juice are you making today?
Always try to prepare it yourself and, possibly, avoid any sweetener!
