Antiaging Food Facts - A

 

Apricots

Of all foods, apricots have the highest levels and widest variety of carotenoids. Carotenoids are antioxidants that help prevent heart disease, reduce bad cholesterol levels, and protect against cancer. Apricots also help in maintaining body fluids which in turn aids in detoxifying the body.

Apricot kernels [inside the apricot seed] also have antiaging properties by strengthening the respiratory system. Caution - the tip of the apricot seed has high levels of the chemical laetrile, which can be upsetting to the system. So remove the tips of the seeds and limit to 5 kernels a day.

Apples

An apple a day keeps the doctor away is a saying we all grow up on - and the facts prove the point. Apples are low in calories, rich in fiber and contain vitamin C and beta carotene. They also contain the mineral boron, which helps to harden bones! Having no fat, sodium or cholesterol, they make the ideal snack. Apples help reduce cholesterol and help control blood sugar levels.

Avocados

Avocados have a range of health benefiting and antiaging properties:

  • Oleic Acid - used to lower bad cholesterol while increasing good cholesterol.
  • Potassium - one cup of avocados contains about 25% of your daily supply of potassium. Potassium helps protect your heart and arteries, which may reduce the risk of high blood pressure and stroke.

  • Antioxidants -protects your organs and tissues by fighting off damage from free radicals.
