HOW DIET AND YOUR HEALTH AFFECTS AGING
Inflammation is your body's way of healing itself. It is an immune system response to injury and infection. It is what tells the body that it needs healing. However, too much inflammation can harm your body's cells, which is what can cause premature aging. While the relationship between inflammation and food is still being analyzed and researched as to the exact effects, scientists do know that some foods, such as processed sugars, can cause your body to have an inflammatory response, which then can lead to a risk of chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation is what can damage cells and cause premature aging.
Thus, by choosing the right foods, you can decrease the signs of aging. Here is what scientists recommend:
- Plants. Fruits and vegetables have anti-inflammatory ingredients that your body needs.
- Antioxidants. Antioxidants fight free radicals, which can cause damage to your body's skin cells. Foods rich in antioxidants can help your body prevent, delay, or repair cell and/or tissue damage. These include fruits and vegetables that are full of color, such as berries, leafy greens, beets, and avocados. Whole grains and green tea are great sources as well.
- Omega-3 fats. Omega-3s can help regulate your body's inflammatory response. These are found in fish like salmon and tuna and in nuts, such as walnuts and pecans.
- Eat less red meat.
- Try to cut processed food as much as possible. Processed food is full of sugars and other ingredients that only increase inflammation, as well as unhealthy fats.

Eating healthy is all about making the right choices on a daily basis. As long as you choose a balanced diet full of protein and carbohydrates with a small amount of the right kind of fats, you should age wisely. Keeping inflammation down is key, and eating foods that will promote anti-aging will help as well.
