What to Monitor & Add
At Rejuvalife, we focus on the most anti-aging medicine in Los Angeles and lifestyle methods to help you live a happier, healthier, and ultimately longer life.
Control Sugar Intake – While we know that sugar doesn’t exactly help our waistline stay slim, we can also thank sugar and its high levels in our blood for increased inflammation which can result in skin inflammation. Also, a high sugar diet can cause more rapid aging due to the formation of Advanced Glycation Endproducts (AGEs) which cause more rapid aging and loss of skin firmness.
Get Your Greens Everyday – Dark leafy greens are one of the food categories that hold the richest nutrient profile. Green leafy vegetables contain a wide range of vitamins, minerals, and beneficial compounds. Green leafy vitamins are rich in vitamin A, C, D & B as well as calcium.
Stay Hydrated – Staying hydrated is one of the essentials to optimal body function. From digestion to clear skin, getting enough water is one of the simplest things you can do for your health. It is recommended that men drink approximately three liters per day and women drink two liters per day.
Fill up on Protein – You may remember from health class, that proteins are the building blocks of collagen and elastin. Meat and eggs are great sources of these amino acids and it’s important to note that the yolk of the eggs is equally if not more important than the egg white. Yolks are extremely rich in vitamins A, B12, D and folate, choline, lutein, zeaxanthin, and arginine.
Choose Quality Fats – When changing up your diet, it’s important not to cut out any food groups especially fats. However, there are some important differences to note when knowing which fats are helpful, typically fats sourced from processed food such as margarine or fried foods. Instead, get your fats from non-processed food for the healthiest naturally sourced fats.
Antioxidants for the Win – “Free radicals” are cells that cause damage to happen to healthy cells in the body and increase of aging. To tame these radical cells, you need large amounts of antioxidant nutrients such as vitamin C which is one of the most powerful antioxidants that you can consume orally or use topically.
