Health and longevity has been a common topic, but in the process of our pursuit of health and longevity, people not only summarize some good living habits, but also the food we often eat in our life, which plays a very important role in our health and longevity. Today, we will learn about the three recognized longevity foods in the world Right.
Every day can eat beauty
There is a saying in Europe: when tomatoes turn red, doctors’ faces turn green. For Italians, tomatoes are the most essential food. Even if they don’t eat tomatoes once in a while, they will come to serve a big bottle of ketchup.
The main reason why tomato attracted people’s attention at first is that it can effectively prevent aging.
It is said that the main reason why the Capri coast in southern Italy can attract a large number of tourists is that the local people have summed up a set of magic beauty maintenance secrets in their long-term life practice: the combination of tomato external application and internal application can make people’s skin soft and delicate, and send out a youthful and healthy luster.
Dr Luis sabati of the Italian nutrition and health bureau pointed out that the reason why tomatoes can keep people young is that they contain carotenoids, and the lycopene they secrete can effectively prevent aging. Therefore, doctors suggest eating a tomato every day, especially for the elderly, because it has the function of prolonging life and anti-aging.
Keep charging the human body
Archaeologists have found that there are many hieroglyphs about garlic on ancient Egyptian pyramids.
During the construction of the pyramids, the slaves suffered not only the pressure of heavy physical labor, but also the heat and cold. The reason for their persistence is that they often eat garlic to supplement their physical strength, thus completing a magnificent building.
According to historical records, the participants of the early Olympic Games had to eat garlic before the competition, so as to increase their strength and courage and cope with the competitors.
Why did ancient Egyptians and Olympic athletes believe that garlic has the magical effect of increasing physical strength? Allicin, as a unique component of garlic, will become allicin after eating. This allicin can be combined with the vitamin B1 of garlic to produce Alliin.
And this alliin is like a magic medicine, not only has the effect of alleviating human fatigue, but also can make the glucose taken by human body from food decompose and burn continuously in cells, and then convert it into energy. Garlic thiamine, like a generator, can continuously “charge” the human body and maintain vitality.
Can prevent periodontal disease
Canadian researchers have proposed that they extract a compound called polyphenol from Bordeaux wine and study its effects on various periodontal disease bacteria. The results showed that polyphenols had a significant inhibitory effect on the proliferation of periodontal bacteria. Therefore, scientists believe that the compound can effectively prevent periodontal disease and tooth loss.
“Polyphenol” is a substance existing in grape seeds and grape skins. When grapes are processed into wine, the alcohol produced by fermentation will decompose “polyphenol”. Although too much alcohol can increase the risk of oral cancer, red wine has shown many health benefits, such as reducing the risk of heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease, thanks to the presence of “polyphenols”.
In addition, red wine is a good source of cellulose, which can prevent colon cancer.
In our life, tomatoes and garlic are a kind of food that people often eat, and they are cheap and good. They have very powerful effects on our bodies. Red wine has been recognized by people with the enhancement of our health awareness. If they have a good attitude and exercise properly, they believe that they can live a long and healthy life.
