Certain foods can extend our life expectancy. How? “Or” What? By fighting the aging of our cells and preventing diseases, such as certain cancers or Alzheimer's. In laboratories, scientists and other researchers track down the beneficial effects of what we eat on our organs, our skin, and our muscles. Because the best way to be healthy, and above all, to stay healthy, is to pay close attention to the contents of our plate.
This crucifer, from the same family as cabbage, turnip, or even rutabaga, contains several beneficial compounds, including the very powerful sulforaphane, which fights carcinogens before they attack our cells. In addition, broccoli is also rich in beta-carotene and vitamin C. These two antioxidants neutralize free radicals and therefore contribute to the prevention of cardiovascular disease.
Tomato is rich in lycopene (the pigment to which it owes its red color), a very good antioxidant whose action is said to be effective in both the prevention of heart problems and cancer. Lycopene, which is found in all other fruits and vegetables with yellow, orange, or red skin, is also believed to have anti-wrinkle effects. Indeed, it protects against the sun's rays, the dreaded UVA and UVB rays, and thus fights against aging of the skin.
The magic compound in turmeric is… curcumin. It is credited with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticancer and even anti-Alzheimer's properties. The proof is that populations who consume a lot of curry (a mixture of spices that contains turmeric in particular) are much less affected by cancer, but also by neurodegenerative diseases, than others.
