What keeps our body young

Forever Young: The 10 Best Rejuvenating Foods!

Precisely because we live in a culture that regards being young as a value in itself, it makes sense and is helpful to look at how we define being young. Perhaps “age” and “youth” are more a matter of attitude than the dates and ages suggest. In order to give our body the vitality that corresponds to our “inner age”, we introduce you to 10 of the best rejuvenating foods!

1. Cocoa

Cocoa, especially in raw form as beans or gently processed into dark chocolate, contains many secondary plant substances, so-called flavonoids. These are like a fountain of youth for our cells and have anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and cancer preventive effects!

2. Nuts

Due to their high proportion of protein and healthy fats, nuts are the ideal food to keep the skin and brain fit and young!

3. Green or white tea

Green or white tea is also a real miracle cure for the skin. Both varieties contain a very high proportion of antioxidants, which plays an enormous role in curbing free radicals!

4. Grapes

Due to their high resveratrol content, grapes are considered the ultimate anti-aging agent. Resveratrol is one of the polyphenols and can protect against UV radiation and thus helps to keep the skin vital and healthy. But our immune system and our general health are also strengthened by eating grapes.

5. Green leafy vegetables

Green leafy vegetables are extremely high in calcium and have a rejuvenating and revitalizing effect on our body. Studies have even shown that regular consumption of green leafy vegetables significantly improves our brain's performance!

6. Millet

Millet is not only a wonderful, gluten-free alternative to other types of grain, it also keeps us young and healthy thanks to its many minerals and trace elements!

7. Pomegranate

Pomegranate has always been a symbol of eternal youth. And rightly so! Because it also contains many antioxidants as well as vitamins and minerals. It is also said to have aphrodisiac properties. In any case, it has health-promoting properties that have been proven to slow down the aging process.

8. Broccoli

Broccoli is full of vitamins and minerals, such as magnesium, which is essential for all processes in the body to function optimally. The consumption of broccoli increases our vitality, supports the body with dehydration and strengthens our immune system due to the high vitamin C content!

9. Berries

Another source of rejuvenating antioxidants are berries of all kinds! Berries help keep the brain powerful, the skin elastic and the heart fit!

10. Olive oil

It has been cultivated in the Mediterranean region for centuries and recently it has been increasingly being praised globally as a miracle cure - olive oil. It protects the cells from diseases and premature aging, supplies us with important fatty acids and is extremely health-promoting!
