- Posted on: Jul 30 2018
At Cilento Facial Plastics, we offer a variety of top tier surgical and non surgical cosmetic surgery options to help you look and feel your absolute best. As part of your anti-aging efforts, consider how you can integrate some of these foods into your daily diet.
Almonds, walnuts, cashews, and more. These tasty morsels pack a punch of health promoting fiber, protein, and micronutrients. They also have anti aging and cholesterol lowering effects as well.
There’s no better time then summer to add more watermelon to your anti aging diet. Watermelon is full of lycopene, a substance that helps protect your skin from the harmful effects of the sun. Essentially it acts as a natural sun block, shielding your skin from ultraviolet rays that are responsible for creating those nasty sun spots that make your skin appear weathered.
Avocados have been riding the latest food trend wave for a few years now. Avocado toast anyone? And its all for good reason. Avocados are bursting with inflammation fighting fatty acids that assist the immune system as well as help the body and mind age well.
Did you know that olives are actually a fruit? It’s true. They are also a prime source of polyphenols and phytonutrients that shield your DNA and help the skin appear younger.
Edamame is a soy food that serves as an excellent source of phytoestrogens compounds which help reduce bone loss and diminish the chances of developing cardiovascular disease.
These tiny treats are one of the few foods that naturally have vitamin D. Vitamin D is something that many people are deficient in. Without it, the body cannot properly absorb the calcium it needs for strong bones. The result? A hunched spine, broken bones or osteoporosis.
