Here is Dr. Phil’s anti-aging grocery list to think about as well:
Anti-Aging Grocery List
- Buy green and red vegetables.
These foods contain natural nutrients and anti-oxidants that prevent the formation of free radicals, which damage cells and can contribute to disease and premature aging. The high water content found in vegetables is also good for skin.
- Buy fish.
Fish contains Omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to lower heart-disease risk and stimulate the immune system. These oils are also good for skin and act as a natural anti-inflammatory agent. Supplement your diet with 12 ounces of fish a week. Some fish have high levels of mercury and should be avoided: Shark, Swordfish, King Mackerel and Tilefish.
- Incorporate oils into your diet.
Extra virgin olive oil and fish oils in a healthy diet are really good for the skin.
- Limit your sugar intake.
Sugar acts as an oxidant, having the opposite effect of an anti-oxidant. It does not promote healthy body weight or healthy skin. Sugar also causes the body to release more insulin, increasing the risk of diabetes.
- Drink lots of water.
Remember to drink 64 ounces a day.
