An expert in the field of regenerative medicine, physician Amir Khan, revealed to the Express edition the dietary rules that prolong life.
According to him, first of all, it is necessary to pay attention to the quality of consumed meat and fish. So, the specialist advised to give preference to farm products, since they do not contain preservatives and other elements harmful to health.
In addition, it is necessary to minimize the consumption of foods with a high glycemic index and replace them with complex carbohydrates, which are found in some cereals, fruits and vegetables. If you reduce the total amount of consumed calories, you can also increase life expectancy, the expert emphasized.
He also advised adding calcium and magnesium to the diet. For example, calcium can protect against cancer, diabetes and heart disease, as well as lower blood pressure. “Magnesium is essential for the absorption of calcium, so foods rich in both are essential,” the medic said.
When preparing food, it is necessary to carefully approach the choice of spices, Khan emphasized. In general, supplements have a beneficial effect on health, but the expert urged not to overuse salt.
Earlier, Antonina Starodubova, the chief freelance dietitian of the Moscow Department of Health, named food products that prolong youth. According to Starodubova, green tea and turmeric are considered leaders among anti-aging products. In addition, red bell peppers also help maintain youthfulness. The list of anti-aging foods also includes broccoli, blueberries and nuts.
