Food and longevity: any connection?

Making a blend of broccoli and some
We often hear people talk about certain foods being able to elongate lifespan. Is this possible? Yes, it's possible to eat certain foods and boost your longevity. Such foods that are often viewed as ‘super foods’ Often have the ability to not only strengthen the immune system, but to also fight disease, and lower body fat and cholesterol, leading to longer healthier life.

Even if you don’t live to be 100 years old, your time on earth will be spent happier and free of disease.

So, what are in these foods that make them super and effective? Most of them contain antioxidants and phytochemicals substances that work together to fight disease and promote a long life.

Salmon dish
These few foods have been tried and tested and found to be effective:

Fish – especially those that contain fats as they help to lower cholesterol and prevent heart attacks. Such fish include salmon, trout, and mackerel as they contain valuable omega-3 fatty acids.

Tomatoes – are valuable because they might prevent the advancement of certain diseases, and protect against prostate cancer.

Broccoli – contains large amounts of vitamin C, calcium, and fiber, and can help prevent bone loss, fight disease, reduce your risk of heart disease, and even boost your immune system. If there is any vegetable you need in your diet plan, it is broccoli. Understandably, many people don’t like the look of it, but get on with eating it, not admiring it.

Garlic – this powerful anti-viral food reduces your chances of catching colds and common infections. It is also a great anti-oxidant. Some will complain of the odour around you after eating garlic, but that should not stop you from enjoying the health benefits it offers. You could also get garlic in capsule form, though I prefer the raw natural one to spice up my cooking.

Oats – very good in fiber which acts as a guard against caner of the colon. The great thing about this food is that it keeps you fuller longer, aiding in your weight loss efforts. They are also good in building strong bones. You must however, avoid lacing your oats with too much sugar. I take mine with natural honey and fat free milk.

Green Tea

Green tea – I already wrote about green tea in one of my postings. However, it needs to be restated here that green tea helps stimulate your metabolism. Green tea is also thought to be an immune system booster. It's rich in antioxidants and certain vitamins, including A, C and E.

Yogurt – is said to contain some ‘friendly’ bacteria that help maintain the intestines and keep the bowels regulated. It is high in calcium, and it is believed to act as a natural appetite suppressant.
