Nine anti-ageing foods foods to help combat the signs of ageing

anti-ageing foods

Blueberries, spinach and eggs are among nine everyday foods which can help reduce and delay the signs of ageing.

Health and wellbeing experts from Vivotion.com have compiled a list of the best anti-ageing foods that can help keep Britain looking, and feeling, younger for longer.

Pairing red wine with olives and nuts may seem like the start of a sophisticated evening, but the increase of vitamins and nutrients will also help your body feel younger.

One of the main signs of ageing is eyesight beginning to get poorer, something which eating plenty of eggs can help prevent.

“The anti-ageing foods on the list ensure the body has plenty of nutrients needed to keep internal systems going at the optimum rate before they slow down – which is when the signs of ageing creep in.

“Taking time to look at the health benefits of different foods can help you look more youthful for longer.”

These are Vivotion.com’s pick of nine anti-ageing foods:

1. Nuts

It doesn’t matter what type of nuts you turn too, they’re full of nutrients and are fantastic sources of protein, fibre and micronutrients. They also have great cholesterol-lowering and anti-inflammatory effects.

Nuts are also a great source of vitamin E which can help repair skin tissue, retain skin moisture and protect skin from UV rays.

2. Blueberries

These little berries have one of the highest levels of antioxidants in fruit. Full of anthocyanin, which is responsible for the deep blue colour and provides anti-ageing qualities.

They’re also full of vitamin C which helps to protect cells, encourages the absorption of iron and aids the digestive system.

3. Avocado

A fantastic source of inflammation-fighting fatty acids which helps to keep skin smooth and supple. The high content of Vitamin A can shed dead skin cells, leaving glowing skin behind.

The carotenoid in the fruit can also help block toxins and damage from the sun’s rays.

4. Olives

They can help protect your DNA and keep you looking and feeling younger due to the amount of polyphenols and phytonutrients in olives. You need to make sure you choose the stoned olives to reap the benefits, due to the pitting process stripping them of the vital nutrients.

5. Edamame

Foods rich in soya, such as Edamame, are great for healthy bones and the cardiovascular system. Women starting or nearing the menopause should turn to these foods, due to them helping boost oestrogen levels, which are significantly lowered through the process.

6. Turmeric

The spice helps fight cell damage, chronic disease and ageing due to it keeping skin and organs in good condition. Its pigment curcumin is a natural anti-inflammatory compound and can lower the risk of heart disease.

7. Spinach

A strong source of phytonutrients that help protect skin from sun damage. Also full of beta-carotene and lutein which are two nutrients that help improve skin elasticity meaning wrinkles can be avoided for longer.

8. Red Wine

Everything in moderation, it’s no secret that red wine can have anti-ageing benefits. The flavonoids you drink in the wine helps reduce bad cholesterol and in turn the risk of coronary heart disease whilst boosting good cholesterol. It also provides you with resveratrol which is thought to help maintain muscle.

9. Eggs

Eggs are a fantastic source of Choline which is used to build cell membranes and helps produce signalling molecules in the brain.

They are also full of Lutein and Zeaxanthin which are powerful antioxidants found in the retina of the eye.

Meet Katie Godfrey… Bedfordshire Beauty and Hair expert

Meet Katie Godfrey... Bedfordshire Beauty and Hair expert

Katie Godfrey is the powerhouse behind the KG brand, single-handedly building her empire from a single salon bought aged 19 as a school leaver with no qualifications, to a chain of salons, a UK-wide beauty training academy, an eyelash product range and a salon coaching business. 

Katie left school at 13 after being bullied, but this only made her more determined to succeed in life. Her Bedfordshire beauty salon became a go-to destination and after being named Eyelash Technician of the Year in 2014, Katie started to rack up the awards winning 15 to date, and securing press coverage nationally including the likes of OK and Hello, as well as pampering various celebrities. 

Now you’re as likely to find her judging awards as winning them – she’s co-owner of the “World Lash University” conference & awards which is partnered with “The Lash Games” at Olympia Beauty, and has her own podcast, “The Life Of KG”, aimed at those in the hair and beauty space but also relatable to anyone in business. 

How Katie Godfrey expanded her brand

Going on to own a chain of franchise salons, Katie then sold these to focus on education, aiming to raise standards across salons and within the industry. She launched KG Professional, a beauty training academy which now has branches in Bedfordshire, Southampton, Gloucestershire, Derbyshire, Milton Keynes, Sussex and Essex, and an eyelash product range.

Within 6 months of launch, the eyelash range was selling into 500 salons and is now sold globally. Katie was one of the first trainers in the UK to teach Russian Volume Lashes, flying to New York to learn and then bring the techniques back.

In addition to maintaining the salon and pro businesses, Katie is a dedicated business mentor and looks after over 35 salons. She started this side business 3 years ago after being inundated by businesses coming to her for help as a result of her success story – she offers 1-2-1 and group mentoring sessions, and aims to launch the first comprehensive online business course for the hair and beauty industry imminently. She talks regularly at colleges and events about her story and is passionate about motivating others to build their careers. She is one of the authors of number 1 best-selling book, ‘Extraordinary Women’, and co-owner of “Salon Franchise,” a consultancy company in the hair & beauty industry. 

Katie’s achievements are all the more impressive considering she has done this while single-handedly parenting her daughter. She is testament to the goals that can be reached with determination and hard work and is inspiring and helping many others to do the same.
