Eating for health

My top 10 anti-aging foods would be:

  1. Tomatoes (& all yellow/red/orange coloured veggies) – tomatoes contain a heart protecting anticancer carotenoid called lycopene, vitamin C and other antioxidants.  Yellow/red/orange veggies all are rich in the carotenoid class of antioxidant, one of the most important classes of antioxidants.
  2. Walnuts & Almonds - contain fibre, magnesium, vitamin E, selenium and omega 3
  3. Fish - contain omega 3 and good quality protein
  4. Brocolli, cauliflower or cabbage - contain anti-cancer nutrients
  5. Legumes, like beans, lentils, sprouts and chickpeas – legumes are high in fibre and have unique health components like Saponins, Phytosterols Lectins, Phytates and anticancer ingredients.
  6. Blueberries, blackberries & cherries -contains unique antiaging antioxidants called proanthocyanidins.
  7. Turmeric/curcumin - a powerful anti-aging and detoxifying anti-oxidant
  8. Lecithin - contains liver protective phospholipids.  Phospholipids are also essential for every cell in the body, especially brain cells.
  9. Artichoke hearts - detox's the liver and kidneys and high in fibre
  10. Red Wine – 1 glass every night – contains resveratrol and low amounts of alcohol protect the heart

Some dietary sources of important nutrients with anti-aging properties

  • Dietary source of DMAE include seafood, anchovies, sardines
  • Dietary sources of EGCG include wine, fo-ti herb, green tea.   1 cup of green tea contains approximately 10-25mg EGCG
  • Dietary sources of vit D3 (micrograms of vitamin d3/100 grams)
    • Dairy foods : butter 2, milk 0.03, cream 0.5, cheese 0.75
    • Dietary oils : cod liver oil 210   halibut liver oil 690
    • Eggs : egg yolks 1.75
    • Fish : sardines 12.5 ; tuna 5.8 ; salmon 12 ;  shrimp 4 ; mackerel 17
    • Meats : liver 1.75 ; beef 0.5
  • Dietary sources of resveratrol (mg of resveratrol /100g)
    • Alcoholic beverages : the resveratrol content of wine is approximately 0.1-15mg/litre-pinot noir grapes appear to have the highest content of all red wines while while very few white wines contain any resveratrol.     The resveratrol content of wine is related to the length of time the grape skins are present during the fermentation process.   Therefore the concentration is significantly higher in red wine than in white wine because the skins are removed earlier during white wine production, thereby reducing the amount that is extracted.     Resveratrol is present in grape skins, seeds, stalks, vines and roots (but not the flesh of the fruit).    The highest concentration of resveratrol is found in grape skins.     Grape juice contains very little resveratrol compared to red wine.    The resveratrol content of grape skins is 50-100 micrograms / gram (5000-10000 mcg/100g (5-10mg/100g)
    • Japanese knotweed is claimed to be the highest known source of resveratrol (containing 1000 times the resveratrol content of grapes)
    • Other sources include : raisins, mulberry, cranberry, blueberry, bilberry, herbs (hu zhang, yucca Japanese knotweed)
