Wanting to look and feel your youngest is a natural desire.
But achieving those goals is often easier said than done (especially in today’s misinformation age)…
For example, while topical lotions can seal in skin-saving moisture, and expensive treatments can change your appearance forver (as a last resort)…
Most people are unaware that they can fight aging from within.
Let me explain:
While Dr. Chasan’s health formulations can help supply your body with these essential nutrients, your diet (what you eat) plays a key role as well.
So today I’m sharing 5 of my favorite fall superfoods that you can add to your diet to help fight back against visible signs of aging.
Pick these up next time you’re shopping and fill your body with nutrients to keep your looking vibrant and youthful best!
When I say “vegetables”, most people think of the green things in the produce section. But while greens are great for your body and mind, don’t skimp on the brightly colored vegetables.
For example, the beautiful red color of bell peppers means they’re packed with age-fighting nutrients such as Vitamin C (which supports collagen production) and carotenoids (a powerful antioxidant).
Vitamin C and carotenoids help defend your body against dangerous free-radicals, which supports your skin in looking strong and supple.
Plus, red peppers taste SO much better (and sweeter) than their green counterparts, making for a delicious, crunchy addition to any meal.
Rich in digestion-supporting fiber and low in calories, this winter vegetable makes the perfect addition to any comfort meal. Try roasting your squash with olive oil and sea salt or adding some to your favorite stew recipe.
Most people think of pumpkins as a classic sign of fall. Carved pumpkins, fresh pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice lattes…
Though pumpkins are often used in desserts, don’t be fooled—they’re packed with health benefits.
Similar to red bell peppers, pumpkin is rich in carotenoids, which are often associated with healthy eyesight, and may support and enhance your immune system response during the winter months1.
Delicious at all times of the year, these little super-berries are a staple in all kinds of fall recipes, none more famous than the beloved cranberry sauce.
Like most berries, cranberries are packed with fiber and antioxidants, and they’re especially rich in proanthocyanidins, which help support a healthy urinary tract2, as well as improving heart health and reducing the risk of infections.
Sweet potatoes are a staple in many a Thanksgiving meal with good reason—they’re delicious, jam-packed with health benefits, and one of the most nutritious foods you can eat.
Sweet potatoes are loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, particularly Vitamin A—which supports healthy skin by enhancing collagen production and healing wounds faster1.
Given how our natural collagen production declines with age, adding new sources of Vitamin A to your diet is a powerful way to help protect and restore the collagen stores in your body.
So, put these foods in your cart next time you buy groceries, and rest easy in knowing that you’re naturally supporting radiant, glowing, youthful skin from within this season.
To your health!
