This article looks at 6 of some of the World’s top superfoods for age-defying beauty that is supreme!
The article is slightly more technical than the others related to it because it is a summary of a book written by a doctor.
1. Goji Berries
Goji berries rank very high as one of the most desirable new food because they are some of the most nutritiously dense foods on earth. They are considered this way because they contain a significant concentration of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, phytochemicals, and essential fatty acids. With such an excellent reputation for enabling longevity, strength-building, and immune-boosting qualities, it is not unexpected they are reputed anti-aging wonders.
Goji berries are originally from Tibet. They have found usage in traditional medicine. These dried berries have many recognized health benefits, such as assisting weight loss, decreasing cholesterol, strengthening immunity, improving vision, easing depression, and fighting cancer cells.
Goji berries have more beta-carotene than carrots and 500 times more vitamin C than oranges by weight. This makes them a fantastic source of vitamin A. When combined with vitamin E and essential fatty acids, goji berries are perfect for anti-aging and beauty practices.
These berries also contain B vitamins, 21 minerals, 18 amino acids, and polysaccharides. The latter promotes the secretion of the restoring human growth hormone by the pituitary gland.Li Qing Yuen has the most well-documented case of longevity. He was born in 1678 and died in 1930 at the age of 252. He is said to have married fourteen times with eleven generations of descendants. The reports say that Li Qing Yuen ate goji berries daily.
Dr. Mindell has conducted a study whose outcome he reported in his book ‘Goji: The Himalayan Health Secret.’ He noted that 67 percent of older people who were given a daily dose of the berries for three weeks experienced huge immune system enhancement and a marked improvement in spirit and positiveness.
2. Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera improves natural collagen production by 100% for a youthful, wrinkle-free complexion and plump, gorgeous skin. Therefore, Aloe Vera is the most fantastic Botox substitute.
The internal gel of the Aloe vera leaf holds about 200 active compounds with more than 75 nutrients. The nutrients incorporate 12 vitamins that even include vitamin B12. Aloe Vera is one of the very few plant sources of vitamin B12. The inner gel also contains about 20 minerals and 18 amino acids.
Aloe Vera has anti-inflammatory plant steroids and enzymes. In addition, it contains anti-microbial properties that combat fungi and bacteria. Aloe Vera is known to help digestion and elimination. Furthermore, it strengthens the immune system and is highly effective at healing, moisturizing, and renewing the skin. It also naturally stimulates collagen production.
Whenever possible, Aloe Vera is best eaten fresh. You can also order huge Aloe Vera leaves that can last a few weeks when refrigerated. Scratch out the inner gel, avoid the outside of the leaf, which is a strong laxative, and blend with fruit for a wonderful, beautifying smoothie. Aloe Vera is best combined with fruit because it has a mild flavor and tastes slightly bitter.
Avocados make the skin soft and smooth and can be absorbed easily. Avocado oil contains the highest skin penetration rate compared to olive, corn, soybean, and almond oils.
On top of containing vitamin E, which is excellent for the skin, avocado also contains antioxidant carotenoids. It also has the master antioxidant glutathione, which is very powerful and has anticarcinogenic abilities. Anticarcinogens are chemical substances that operate against the processes that cause cancer. In addition, the liver contains high levels of glutathione and eliminates toxic materials.
Glutathione is effective against pollutants such as ultraviolet radiation, exhaust fumes, and cigarette smoke. In addition, some studies are presently underway to look at the possible benefits of glutathione for multiple conditions. These conditions include AIDS, heavy metal poisoning, eczema, liver disorders, Parkinson’s disease, cancer, memory loss, heart disease, and arthritis.
Chlorella is a form of algae with a lot of nutrients. It’s a good source of many vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
The acids RNA and DNA found in the human nucleus and also in Chlorella coordinate and cause cellular growth and repair cells. It also enables our bodies to use nutrients more effectively, avoid disease and eliminate toxins.
The creation of nucleic acids in the body decreases continuously as we age. Dr. Benjamin Frank’s book ‘No-Aging Diet‘ emphasizes the importance of nucleic acid as a cell builder and advises taking them.
The author of ‘Healing with Whole Foods’ Paul Pitchford, advises that inadequate nucleic acid causes early aging and weakened immunity. A study at the Medical College of Kanazawa in Japan discovered that when Chlorella was fed to mice, their lifespan was increased by 30 percent. Reloading RNA and DNA can be essential to longevity, immunity, and overall health.
On top of its acid content, Chlorella is loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and amino acids. These nutrients make it an extraordinarily healthy and vitalizing superfood. Spirulina is another good counterpart to Chlorella.
5. Bee Pollen
Bee pollen has outstanding capabilities in making skin young and beautiful. Many renowned dermatologists, like the Swedish Dr. Lars-Erik Essen, have successfully used bee pollen to treat acne and other skin conditions. And they claim to have observed its beautifying and anti-aging results.
He has reported that bee pollen prevents early cell aging and promotes new skin tissue development. It offers adequate protection against dehydration and adds new life to dry cells. In addition, it smoothes away wrinkles and boosts a life-giving blood supply to all skin cells.
Dr. Lars-Erik Essen also believes bee pollen’s skin regeneration properties are due to its high concentration of nucleic acids, RNA and DNA. What also helps is the pollen’s natural antibiotic action. In addition, bee pollen has many other health-promoting advantages, including lowering cholesterol, fighting infections, boosting the immune system, strengthening the blood, enhancing libido, improving longevity, and increasing physical strength and stamina. Because it is nutritionally complete, it is called a perfect food.
6. Coconut Oil
Coconut oil can help you lose weight and also speed up your metabolism. On top of moisturizing the skin, it also beautifies it and provides antioxidant effects which protect against free-radical damage. This helps to make the skin stay healthy and young.
Coconut oil is an excellent supporter of any beauty skincare regime when taken internally or applied externally. This oil also contains lauric acid, an anti-microbial fatty acid that destroys fungi, bacteria, and viruses.
