Did you know diet can affect signs of aging? Foods that can help turn back the clock



MILWAUKEE -- Aging, dark spots, wrinkles and fine lines -- these are the last things you want to see when you look in the mirror. But did you know your diet can affect the signs of aging? Our registered dietitian Lisa Grudzielanek with Your Tasty Life joins Real Milwaukee with some age-fighting foods.

Bone Broth
• Collagen helps in keeping the skin firm and elastic.
• Ageing breaks down the collagen matrix in your skin which leads to wrinkles.

Aloe Vera
• Aloe vera juice has been shown to help reverse skin ageing.
• Drinking aloe vera juice is known to reduce the wrinkle depth and improve skin elasticity due to increased collagen production.

Tomato Paste
• Contains a good dose of lycopene, which has profound anti-inflammatory benefits.
• Lycopene is absorbed better from cooked tomatoes.
• Daily intake can reduce the risk of sunburn.

Blueberries
• Contain more antioxidants than almost any other food.
• Provides extra protection against the skin-damaging free radicals that result from sun exposure, emotional stress, and even over exercising.

Green Tea
• Contains catechins, one of the most effective compounds for preventing sun damage

Brazil Nuts
• Rich in selenium, a powerful mineral that aids in repairing cell damage and slows the skin`s aging process.
• Enjoy just 1-2 nuts each day and get your daily requirement for selenium.
