We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but did you know that the foods you eat during this morning feast could yield powerful anti-aging effects? According to a recent Huffington Post article, you may want to ditch the bagels and cereal in exchange for some of these alternatives:
- Eggs– Eggs have gotten a bad rap over the years since they're linked with high cholesterol, but studies indicate that eating one egg per day has no negative health consequences. That's good news for people seeking out anti-aging solutions, because eggs contain Choline,a water-soluble essential nutrient that can prevent memory loss, as well as proteins that protect against vision loss.
- Oatmeal – "For years, research has shown a strong correlation between oatmeal and cholesterol reduction," reports the source. "Oatmeal is rich in soluble fiber that gets rid of 'bad' cholesterol. Oats also are packed with the antioxidants that do battle against cell damage. And that can help plump skin and reduce wrinkles."
- Pomegranate juice – You're going to need somethingto wash down your meal, and pomegranate juice is a great choice. The news outlet notes that pomegranate slows down natural oxidization of DNA and may even prevent heart disease.
