Ten Foods To Live Longer
Updated: Friday, July 26 2013, 12:42 PM EDT
A new report shows a trip to Findlay Market, or wherever you like to buy produce by local growers, might hold the secret to eternal youth.
Medical Reporter Liz Bonis tells us about ten foods to help you live longer in today's Medical Edge.
Hard not to notice here at Madison's Market how we all pick out our produce grown close to home.
But according to this new report from healthy aging researchers at UCLA, don't just pick em out, pick em up and eat em.
These brightly colored fruits, vegetables, and whole grains are part of a list of summertime favorites, which appear to work like a fountain of youth in your own body.
Lauren Niemes, Nutrition Council: "Summertime is the best time for healthy eating because there's such an abundance of fresh colorful produce that taste so good."
These foods all make this list because they have certain nutrients in them that work against diseases in the body --these are generally diseases that set in with age -- summer is a great time to get em --and here are ten that they recommend.
Apples, blueberries, and beets top the list, mainly because of their deep colored hues.
"All those reds and blues, they help promote brain health and your immune system, and they are high in fiber and vitamin C."
Green foods, such as spinach or kale, and broccoli, as well as yellow foods, such as bananas, corn are next. They help fight age related macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness with age.
"Yellow's are important, which has lutein, which is important to eye health."
Rounding out the top ten... Beans. These are fresh fava beans, as well as sweet potatoes, and wheat germ make the living longer list.
Inside all these foods are natural plant compounds called phytochemicals.
"They are actually protective to the plants,, and they finding are also protective to our body."
Not to mention, these foods are also good for a healthy weight, which protects against memory loss with age.
"They are high in fiber, they are low in calories,and they taste good."
So good, who knew eternal youth could be right in the palm of your own hand.
