What if you could extend your years by just adding five healthy foods to your plate and make an improvement in your longevity! Well, researchers claim this is possible by "outsmarting" your body i.e, equipping your body defense system with enough vitamins like vitamin E, C, and beta-carotene found in most diets which helps fight free radicals that cause cancer or damage valuable cells in the body. This nutrients needed can be found in the following listed foods. 1. Fish
Research shows that compounds in fish called carotenoids can protect against neurological diseases. Fatty fishes also contain Omega-3 which keeps your body young, which according to a recent study from Ohio State University, Omega-3 supplements also significantly reduced inflammation, a condition linked to allergies to cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer's. 2. Garlic
Recent studies have found that phytochemicals found in garlic can halt the formation of carcinogenic chemicals in the body, and that women who eat more garlic have lower risk of certain colon cancer.
A woman named Nancy Fisher, 107, ones attributed her long life to her faith and her passion for garlic. 3. Tomatoes
Lycopene is also an important nutrient in fighting against cancer. When cooked, the amount of absorbable lycopene in tomatoes is higher, thus, increasing the amount of carcinogen-fighting carotenoids your body is able to absorb.
