Anti aging guide

Cruciferous Vegetables and Aging



Eat Cauliflower, Cabbage and Other Cruciferous Veggies which contains antioxidant properties to fight aging

The link in between good nutrition and great-looking skin is unquestionable. Fresh vegetables are packed with all sorts of healthy nutrients and some have antioxidant properties which could help slow aging of your skin. Daily needs and requirements for a number of vitamins – which includes folic acid, vitamin C, and beta-carotene, the forerunner for vitamin A – could be fulfilled pretty much completely from fresh veggies as well as fruits. This runs specifically true with dark-green leafy vegetables, such as spinach or broccoli, and dark orange vegetables, such as carrots or yams.

Some veggies also supply adequate levels of calcium, iron, and magnesium. In addition to nutrients, vegetables also contain phytochemicals that could provide further health benefits. It’s a wise decision to load your daily diet with as many cruciferous vegetables (such as collard greens, kale, cauliflower, cabbage, and others) as you possibly can because of their cancer-preventing antioxidant properties.
