A team of Korean scientists have found that if you can make smart food choices when you are younger you can easily add years to your life. Scientists have also found that consuming micro-nutrients, including vitamin C, folate and potassium can significantly delay the biological again processes. These foods are abundant in fruits and vegetables and can delay biological aging in middle-aged and older adults.
- a team of Korean scientists might be on to something when it comes to delaying the aging process
- the leukocyte telomere length (LTL), or the parts that may reflect cumulative oxidative stress and indicate biological aging, might hold the key to naturally slowing down the aging process
- They discovered that the consumption of certain micronutrients was associated with the length of telomeres and delayed biological aging.
“They found that you can easily add years to your life by making smarter food choices when you are younger. So, forget about expensive lotions and facial creams with harmful ingredients to turn back the hands of time. While the possibility of eternal life is still very slim, your best bet to live a long, disease-free life seems to be living a simple, organic and active life.”
