Fruits And Vegetables
Probably the best foods you can eat are fruits and vegetables.  They are loaded with vitamins and minerals and, when eaten raw, have powerful enzymes that actually help your body with the digestion process – leaving more energy for you to use on other things.Fruits and vegetables are also loaded with antioxidants which fight of free radicals.  Free radicals actually play a major role in aging and are thought the be major contributors to disease so the more of them you can fight off, the healthier and younger looking you will be!Fruits and vegetables are considered as natures healing foods, as they prevent us from harmful compounds by removing waste and cleanse our body cells.

Essential Fatty Acids
Fatty acids might not sound like something that are good for you, but they are.  The Omega-3 fatty acids in particular are essential for keeping your cell membranes “fluid” which helps with a host of body functions not the least of which is younger looking skin.  You can get these essential fatty acids from cold water fish like salmon and tuna, flax seed oil and walnuts.

Fiber
Fiber is key to keeping your digestive process working and it can also help keep your cholesterol levels in check. While this might not do a lot for your outer appearance, it can do a whole heck of a lot for your insides and this in turn will help keep you vibrant and youthful.It’s especially important to get enough to keep your bowel movements regular, after all, who can look energetic and youthful when they are constipated?  Fiber can be found in whole grains, black beans, pears, prunes and apples.When buying whole wheat breads, don’t be fooled by the words “whole wheat” on the label, look at the ingredients and make sure the very first one is whole wheat or whole grains.  Otherwise, you are not getting a full whole wheat product.

Water
Finally, the last of the anti aging foods I want to talk about isn’t really a food at all – it’s water.  Plain and simple water.  You need to drink plenty of it to keep you hydrated.  This not only helps with the inner functions of your body but will also help your skin and hair look younger

Simple Anti Aging Treatment Discovered – Maintaining Alkalinity

“Secret” You have got to read this and update your skin care routine now!

Dr. Paul Lynn, MD of San Franciso Preventive Medical Group (www.sfpmg.com) has recently announced his investigative findings that by using a common household item to maintain a state of metabolic alkalinity in
our bodies, we can prevent premature aging. The common household item is: baking soda.

Dr Lynn recently announced that by consuming small amounts of baking soda on a daily basis and keeping a constant state of alkalinity in our bodies will prevent premature aging.

Dr Lynn has 25 years experience in anti aging medicine and his findings are gaining further support by scientific research and clinical evidence.

Alkalinity in our bodies causes the health of the cell membranes to be maintained longer, thus alkalinity keeps our cells alive longer. While acidity in our bodies causes the cell membranes to break down faster and die prematurely. The resulting stress of our body working to replace the dieing cells at a faster rate, can be defined as premature aging.

Dr. Paul Lynn, MD advices the following to be added for a successful anti aging regimen.

“Baking soda (not baking powder) used daily, in low dosages is one of the most under-utilized, effective anti-aging treatments available,” advises Paul Lynn MD. “Use 1/3 tsp per day in a glass of water. Not more. Anytime is okay, but best after 3 PM. This is enough to restore an alkaline condition for the cells in most cases. Too much alkalinity can create another set of problems. If using the powder is uncomfortable, compressed baking soda tablets are available.”

“Alkalinity is an anti-aging “secret’ existing to all.” says Dr. Paul Lynn, MD of San Francisco Preventive Medical Group.

Other Uses of Baking Soda

Baking soda is a versatile ingredient and can be used to make anti-bacterial facial scrubs, used as a mildly abrasive clean cleanser for all skin types including acne prone skin, and is also great for brushing your teeth.
