5 Nutritious Foods That Slows Ageing

There are certain foods that could slow ageing by improving your metabolism and boosting your energy. So, even by the time you hit forty, your skin will still appear smooth with little or no wrinkles. 

Accordingly, Jumia Food identifies anti-ageing food you should be eating.

Seafood 
Seafood such as salmon, tuna, mackerel, and sardines contain substantial healthy fats that help moisturize your skin. It also protects the skin from ultraviolet radiation damage naturally.

Eggs 
To protect your eyesight, eat the yolk. It features nutrients that lower your risk of cataracts and age-related eye degeneration.

Cucumbers 
There is a lot of water in cucumbers, which makes it an excellent choice for additional hydration that replenishes your body cells. Also, its silica content is a natural wrinkle fighter that gives your body a radiant skin.

Strawberries 
Strawberries contain flavonoids (healthy chemicals that give fruits and veggies their colour) with antioxidant powers that could keep your heart young. Regularly eating them and other flavonoid-rich foods like apples and pears could also reduce the risk of heart disease.

Milk 
As you age, you lose bone and muscle. Milk helps counter this because it's packed with two anti-ageing nutrients—protein and calcium. Downing a cup of milk daily won't be a bad idea.
