We get our nutrients from the food we eat. For optimal health, eat foods rich in antioxidants (vitamins A, C, E and lycopene), omega-3 fatty acids and folate.
Antioxidants fight free radicals, molecules that damage cells and cause heart disease, cancer and premature aging. Sources include:
- sweet potatoes
- grapefruit (red and pink)
- peppers (red and green)
- sunflower seeds
- almonds and
- olive oil.
Omega-3 fatty acids (polyunsaturated fat) have anti-inflammatory, cardiovascular-enhancing and immune-regulating properties. They help prevent and control high cholesterol, hypertension, heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, depression, inflammatory and auto-immune disorders. Sources include:
- ground flax seeds
- pumpkin seeds.
Folate prevents age-related cognitive decline, damage to blood vessels and brain cells. Sources include:
- dark green leafy vegetables (turnip greens, mustard greens, spinach, romaine lettuce, collard greens, etc.)
- brussels sprouts
