Our bodies peak in physical at the age of 35, then decline gradually. Changes in the structure of the body lead to changes in the appearance of the body. Aging is a natural process and occurs continuously. This phenomenon increases with time. We can not prevent this process, but we can slow it down.

Here are five foods rich in antioxidants that can keep your body young and healthy naturally:

1. Olive oil

Olive oil is rich in monounsaturated fats, which can enhance life expectancy through cardiovascular health and reduce the risk of cancer. It is also rich in oleic acid, which has powerful antioxidant properties to help reverse the oxidative effects of aging.

2. Yogurt

Indigenous people of Georgia in the former Soviet Union have the highest percentage of people who live over one hundred years in the world - and they are also one of the regions with the highest rate of consumption of yogurt. It is an irreplaceable food in their diet.

Yogurt is also rich in calcium, which helps prevent osteoporosis. It even provides protein to nourish the muscles, and probiotics to promote the digestive system and strengthen the immune system.

3. Fishes

The Inuit (indigenous people in Alaska) has a significantly low rate of heart disease. Researchers, after studying the eating habits of this tribe, concluded that the reason was partly due to the high consumption of fish.

Fishes, especially cold-water fishes or fatty fishes such as salmon, are a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, powerful antioxidants. They can help in anti-inflammatory, promoting cardiovascular and immune systems, as well as reducing the damage caused by radicals.

4. Cocoa

The Kuna, natives of the San Blas Islands off the coast of Panama, also has a heart disease rate of about one-tenth of Panama's mainland. The secret is that they consume a large amount of cocoa per day.

Cocoa is rich in an antioxidant called flavanol, which is involved in the health of blood vessels and can promote blood circulation, giving you a healthy immune system.

5. Nuts

A research conducted on a Christian cult has found that vegetarian dieters with healthy protein-rich nuts can live at least two years more. The reason is that these nuts are rich in healthy monounsaturated fats as well vitamins, minerals and antioxidants – which give you incredible cardiovascular health benefits.

There are no drugs that help to prolong life but we can live a healthy and happy life in old age. It means we can slow down or minimize the unwanted effects of aging, maintain our physical and mental health, and keep our dynamic and independent lives.
