against conditions such as heart disease and
  • The high levels of vitamin C and other
  • antioxidants.
  • beneficial to health both physically and
  • mentally.
  • Help improve cardiac function and the health
  • of the veins and arteries and also are
  • excellent for the health of the urinary

  • ? One of the healthiest fruits.
  • Have anti-inflammatory properties and help
    prevent some types of cancer.
  • Effects can be very beneficial for those with
    arthritis or other problems of the

?The cranberry can help keep urine infections
away . ? good for the prevention of kidney
stones, dental decay and gum disease.
The Benefit of Leafy Greens
?Dark green leafy vegetables are, calorie for
calorie, perhaps the most concentrated source of
nutrition of any food. ? They are a rich source
of minerals and vitamins, including vitamins K
(reducing bone loss and preventing fractures), C,
E, and many of the B vitamins. ? They also
provide a variety of phytonutrients including
beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin, which
protect our cells from damage and our eyes from
age-related problems, among many other effects.
Dark green leaves even contain small amounts of
Omega-3 fats.
The Benefits of Protein
Beef up your knowledge of protein and
gooddietary sources
  • High-protein, low-carbohydrate diets
  • Body builders are snatching, grabbing, and
  • down protein shakes.
  • Dieters are gobbling down protein bars in hopes
    of quick weight loss.

The Power of Protein
  • It's easy to understand the excitement.
  • Protein is an important component of every cell
    in the body.
  • Protein is an important building block of bones,
    muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood.

  • Protein is a "macronutrient," meaning that the
    body needs relatively large amounts of it.
  • Vitamins and minerals, which are needed in only
  • small quantities, are called
  • "micronutrients."
  • You may assume the solution
  • is to eat protein all day long.
  • We need less total protein
  • that you might think.

How Much Protein Is Enough?
  • According to the U.S. Department of Health and
  • Services
  • Teenage boys and active men can get all the
    protein they need from three daily servings for a
    total of seven ounces.
  • For children age 2 to 6, most women, and some
    older people, the government recommends two daily
    servings for a total of five ounces.
  • For older children, teen girls, active women, and
    most men, the guidelines give the nod to two
    daily servings for a total of six ounces.

Bodies need a modest amount of protein to
function well. Extra protein doesn't give you
extra strength.

Whole Grains
What is a Whole Grain?
  • All grains start life as whole grains.
  • The entire seed of a plant.
  • Seed (which also calls "kernel") is made up of
    three key parts bran, germ, and endosperm.
  • Bran
  • Multi-layered outer skin of kernel.
  • Tough enough to protect the other two parts of
  • Antioxidants, B vitamins and fiber.
  • Germ (Embryo)
  • Sprout into a new plant.
  • B vitamins, some protein, minerals, and healthy
  • Endosperm
  • ? The largest portion of the kernel.
  • Provides essential energy to the young plant.
  • Proteins and small amounts of vitamins and

Some types of Whole Grains
  • Rice
  • One of the most easily-digested grains rice
    cereal is often recommended as a babys first
    solid food.
  • White rice is refined, whole-grain rice is
    usually brown. (can also be black, purple, red or
    any of a variety of colors.)
  • Brown rice is rich in many nutrients.
  • Barley
  • One of the oldest cultivated grains.
  • Full of fiber and much healthier than a
    fully-refined grain.
  • The fiber in barley is especially healthy.
  • Effectively lower cholesterol.

  • Oats

    for breakfast cereals.
  • Contain a special kind of fiber called
    beta-glucan (especially effective in lowering
  • Have a unique antioxidant. (Protect blood vessels
    from the damaging effects of bad cholesterol.)
  • Corn
  • Lately being reassessed and viewed as a healthy
  • Eating corn with beans can raises the protein
    value to humans.
  • Has the highest level of antioxidants of any
    grain or vegetable.

Health Benefits
  • Whole grains are a good source of
    dietary fiber, protein, essential fatty acids, as
    well as other important nutrients and vitamins.
  • A lot of evidence suggests that eating whole
    grains reduces the risks of coronary heart
    disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes and obesity.

Health Effects of Whole Grains
  • Heart disease
  • 20 to 30 percent lower risk for cardiovascular
    disease compared to individuals with lower
    intakes of whole grains.
  • Diet rich in whole grain foods tend to decrease
    LDL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol), blood
    pressure, and increase HDL cholesterol (the
    good cholesterol).
  • Decrease risk of heart disease through their
    antioxidant content.
  • Cancer
  • Reduce the risk of cancer by a variety of
  • Contain antioxidants that may help protect
    against oxidative damage, which may play a role
    in cancer development

How much is Enough?
  • The Dietary Guidelines for Americans, released in
    January 2005, recommend
  • All adults eat at least 3 to 5 servings of whole
    grains everyday.
  • Children need 2 to 3 servings or more.
  • Meeting the daily requirement by eating
  • ? Three "ounce-equivalents" of breads, rolls,
  • ? Other grain foods made with 100 whole grains.
  • (A slice of bread or a serving of breakfast
    cereal usually weighs about an ounce.)
  • Every bit of whole grain you eat contributes to
    your health.
  • To start, you can also get the whole grains you
    need from foods made with a mix of whole grains
    and refined grains.

    doing simple exercise?
  • Exercise for 9 More Years can make DNA younger,
    and it may be the fastest way to look younger.
  • Exercise not only can make us feel good and look
    nice, but also gives us more strength and energy,
    and also a better bone density.
  • Other benefits that we could get from exercising
  • Most important, exercise can also increase our
    lymphatic function.

The ideal anti-aging exercises should address to
these areas in aging peoples health
  • Metabolic Rate
  • Muscle Mass
  • Bone Density
  • Growth Factor
  • Lung Volume
  • Heart Fitness

Best Exercises For Anti Aging
Here are 3 exercises to get you started on your
anti-aging exercise program
For most people, walking is accessible enough and
often includes a social element than people are
successful at establishing a walking routine.
For anti-aging, this is a great place to start.
Not only do walkers benefits from the physical
exercise in walking, they also get out in the sun
which helps prevent vitamin D deficiency.
Weight Training (Bodybuilding)
This exercise is great for raising your basal
metabolic rate. It also helps you shape up and
get muscles toned, so it is a good way to slow
down many of the common telltale signs of aging.
Strengthening muscles through weight training
helps to prevent age related loss of muscle mass
and strength. Exercises such as weight training
also helps to maintain low blood pressure and to
stabilize insulin levels.
Aerobics stimulates you mentally as well as
physically. You can get benefits in just twenty
minutes of aerobics. It reduces your stress
levels and helps to keep you looking younger. If
you have good mood, it may slow down the aging
process. Aerobic exercises get your circulation
pumping so it is good for your heart as much as
anything else. It can make the heart works more
efficiently and will lengthen your actual life
expectancy. The muscle will also be more
strength. Running is a good example of an
aerobic exercise.
The Health Benefits of Red Wine
Many studies investigated the benefits of red
wine suggested that moderate amount of red wine
(one drink a day for women and two drinks a day
for men) lowers the risk of heart attack for
people in middle age by 30 to 50 percent.
Other studies also indicated that red wine can
raise HDL cholesterol (the Good cholesterol) and
prevent LDL cholesterol (the Bad cholesterol)
from forming.
What's in Red Wine that are good for heart?
Many studies to uncover a cause for red wine's
effects have focused on its phenolic
constituents, particularly resveratrol and the
Key to red wines ability to lower the risk of
certain diseases is the resveratrol it contains,
which comes from the skins and seeds of grapes.
White wine, for which grape skins are removed
earlier in the fermentation process, has a much
lower concentration of resveratrol than red.
Flavonoids, on the other hand, exhibit
antioxidant properties helping prevent blood
clots and plaques formation in arteries.
Catechins Other beneficial antioxidants found in
red wine are flavonoids called catechins, also
abundant in green, black and white teas.
Catechins help to reduce the risk of heart
disease. Saponins Red wine contains saponins
(also occurring in soybeans and olive oil), which
provide additional heart health
benefits. Guercetin Guercetin, another of red
wine's beneficial antioxidants, may play a role
in the prevention of lung cancer.
Should I start drinking more red wine now? The
answer is No. Studies showed that alcohol
drinking may increase triglycerides (another Bad
blood lipids) and result in weight gain due to
its empty calories.
AHA recommends one to two drinks per day for men
and one drink per day for women.
  • These anti-aging foods are great to eat and
    make you feel healthy and younger. Low diet not
    only helps you keep physically healthy but they
    also help you mentally with a sharp mind. Try
    these anti-aging food and your skin will looks
    clearer, more translucent and younger.
