Ageing is the process of change in a person over time and it is inevitable. Ageing comes down to three factors, vitamin deficiency, free radical damage and toxicity in the body. Oxidative stress causes ageing such as premature hair loss and greying, brittle hair, nails, wrinkles and poor skin elasticity as well as early signs of osteoporosis and arthritis. However a healthy, balanced diet rich in anti-oxidants such as vitamins A,C & E is essential and will help protect your cells from the oxidation process. If you want to maintain youth and vitality and have skin that glows with radiance be sure to include high quality nourishment such as gluten free whole grains, loads of green vegetables, orange and yellow veg, berries, lean protein, healthy fats, and hydrating liquids such as fresh veggies juices, water and green tea.
