7 Tips For Eating to Look Younger That Actually Work

7. Omega Fatty Acids Oil

“Essential fatty acids are responsible for healthy cell membranes, which is not only what act as barriers to harmful things but also as the passageway for nutrients to cross in and out and for waste products to get in and out of the cell,” Ann Yelmokas McDermott, PhD, a nutritionist at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University in Boston told WebMd.

Omega 3 is made up of three acids EPA, DHA, and ALA. ALA can be found in hemp seeds, flax seeds, and chia seeds. DHA and EPA are found in algae, spirulina, blue-green algae, and chlorella. Omega 6′s are found in many vegetarian foods including olive oil, whole grains, and avocados.

No oysters for me, but beans and nuts are a great source of zinc. Thanks for the post!

Very good information! Thanks for sharing. Love them all except oyster.:) I guess instead of guava(if we can not find one in the store) we could also use other fruit or vegetables that are rich in vitamin C like lemon, kiwi, orange etc, or sour cabbage, paprika, broccoli....

Awesome! Also, work on your posture- nothing ages you like a slumped back and poor abdominal tone.
