It would be nice to live as it is without going through aging, but it is said that the human body starts aging from the 30s. It is explained that the aging of the blood vessels begins rapidly at the age of 60, after the muscles and bones age from the mid-30s. However, experts advised, “Maintaining a proper diet can slow aging.”
American health media ‘It’s Not That’ said on the 12th (local time), “One of the best ways to pursue healthy aging is to eat foods full of nutrients that are good for the body.” As ‘foods that help slow aging’, experts recommended six foods, such as △nutritive supplements that are good for bone health, △protein, △seafood, △avocado, △fruits and vegetables, and △flaxseed.
The expert emphasized the importance of bone health as you age, saying, “Bone health slows down the aging process and builds resistance to bone fractures.” “Bone needs protein, calcium, vitamin D, magnesium and potassium,” he said.

It is also important to supplement with protein. Experts say, “Eating enough protein helps build and maintain muscle.” He added, “Each meal requires 25 to 30 grams of protein, and to meet this need, protein must also be included in snacks.”
The expert also said, “Seafood is rich in protein, vitamins, minerals, and omega 3 fat. Omega 3 keeps the arteries clean, so it improves heart and brain health.” Avocados can also help if you can’t get healthy fats. “Avocados contain a lot of good fats that help reduce high blood sugar levels,” said the expert. “It is good for heart health and lowering blood pressure.”
Dietitian Janet Coleman said: “You have to eat vegetables and fruits every day. It can help curb weight gain and is good for heart health. It will help improve digestion and boost immunity.” “Seeds like flax and chia seeds help support heart and brain health, while maintaining healthy skin,” said nutritionist Bandana Shess.
