of the Best Medicinal Foods As we get older and our appetite starts to decline, we tend to consume less calories overall and, therefore, our food choices matter more than ever. Research shows that as caloric intake and absorption of nutrients drops among the elderly, rates of diseases including cancer and heart disease steadily increase. To help prevent deficiencies and lower your risk for illness, it’s crucial to make every calorie count. Here are six food groups that help protect you most: 1. Fresh/Raw Vegetables Green vegetables (like kale, wheat grass and spinach, for example), sea vegetables and fresh vegetable juices are considered some of the healthiest foods on earth, known to dramatically help slow aging. They help restore the body’s proper pH, prevent nutrient deficiencies, curb hunger and detoxify the blood. They are also super low in calories, yet beaming with antioxidants, phytonutrients and vitamin C, vitamin K, magnesium, potassium, iodine and fiber. Antioxidants found in vegetables are an amazing thing: They develop within plants to protect the plant from its damaging environment including ultraviolet radiation, predator pests, toxins and pollution. Phytonutrients have the purpose of shielding plants from predators (and also provide their color, flavor and smell), and we obtain the same benefits when we eat them. Nearly all diseases including infections, osteoporosis and even cancer thrive in an acidic environment, but by alkalizing your body naturally through eating more plant foods (especially fresh veggies), you help prevent cellular damage. Veggies of all kinds help lower free radical damage and control inflammation, plus many provide prebiotics and a high dose of fiber.
