As consumption of red meat, which is rich in iron, affects life expectancy, according to a recent British study, a nutritionist advises eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, good fats and fresh foods, the Sun reports. In short, a diet rich in antioxidants, collagen, and minerals.
After scientists from the Usher Institute at the University of Edinburgh revealed in mid-July the impact of iron-rich foods on life expectancy, a British nutritionist explained to “The Sun” about the principles of diet to preserve the youthfulness of the skin.
With researchers advising to avoid frequent consumption of red meat, Dr. Rupy Aujla prescribes eating plenty of fruit and vegetables every day. These provide elements that balance excessive inflammation and protect cells as they age, he says.
A relatively low-protein diet also helps to slow down the aging process by reducing the number of excessive growth hormones, says the nutritionist.
According to him, the principles of healthy eating are based on the consumption of vegetable food, good fats (nuts and seeds), high-fiber and fresh foods.
In other words, meals rich in antioxidants, collagen, and minerals, as well as foods that have anti-inflammatory properties, can help make you look younger while taking care of your body, concludes the Sun.
Previously, a study published by the American Heart Association had shown the negative effect of bacteria that forms in the intestines after consuming red meat. This micro-organism damages the arteries and increases the risk of developing heart disease as we age. However, a change in diet could reverse this process.
