Can what you eat actually prevent aging? Nutrition is  integral not only in maintaining internal health, but in creating a healthy outward appearance as well. With a major study proving that nutrition improves looks more than makeup and expensive surgeries, it is becoming increasingly evident that diet is the number one factor when it comes to halting age-related changes. Whether it be aesthetic changes, or strengthening internal arteries, there are many ways to prevent aging naturally and subsequently ensure that your age does not take a toll on your body. Here are 4 common eating mistakes that lead to negative symptoms oftentimes associated with aging.

Mistake #1: Failing to Consume B Vitamins

Vitamin B12 is essential for optimum energy levels and will ultimately help you to prevent aging. Aside from supplementation, vitamin B12 can only be found in meat products, and therefore should be on the daily supplementation list for vegetarians (liquid B12 is much better for absorption than other forms). In addition to aiding in energy levels, vitamin B12 supports healthy brain, metabolism, and nervous system function. Supplementing with B12 or consuming meat products containing B12 will revive energy levels, and help to maintain the body’s natural processes.

Mistake #2: You’re Not Getting Enough Manganese and Copper

Manganese and copper are rarely even mentioned when it comes to supplementation. In addition to preventing joint pain, these two essential nutrients are also responsible for maintaining joint cartilage and flexibility. Supplementing with manganese and copper may help you continue exercising and stretching daily — pain free.

Mistake #3: Avoiding Healthy Fats

Omega-3 fats are essential for brain health. As a part of your brain’s building blocks, a lack of omega-3′s leads to decreased memory and brain function.

Mistake #4: Consuming Packaged Foods Over Whole

Processed foods, aside from containing high fructose corn syrup and a variety of other toxic additives, do not contain enough potassium. This leads to high blood pressure, and subsequent health ailments. Prepare your meals on your own, and stick to high quality organic foods. Follow these steps and you may be presently surprised at how much of an integral role these foods play in achieving your goal to prevent aging.

    We should eat chickens and turkeys and things like cows and pigs should be avoided. Thry have too much fat and it costs more to feed them than the meat they produce.

    • Glenn Keawe

      Well, I'm not to sure about chickens and turkeys, have you seen how they are raised? I'm thinking that there is some correlation between how poultry is raised these days and the cancer rates. Chickens and turkeys are pumped with so many antibiotics and growth hormones, its no wonder we are riddled with cancer.

    B12 is available in dairy, fish, eggs and even some vegetables, as I recall. You don't have to eat meat, and it's healthier and more environmentally sound not to. Many who avoid even the above alternatives use sublingual spray or B12 injections.

    • Warren

      Nutritional yeast is a great source for vegetarians, raw milk is great also! Other sources are sea vegetables such as dulse,kelp, kombu, and nori, soy beans and soy products. It is also present

      in the alfalfa, bladder wrack (seaweed) and

      hops. Defintely no need to consume meat.
