As you “age” everything in your body ages including your immune system. Fortunately, super foods and supplements that offer outstanding immune support are also anti aging powerhouses. It is really hard to choose the top 3, so these are based on price, availability, and effectiveness.
Anti aging foods as supplements
1. Mushrooms are some of the most overlooked foods, super foods, and supplements. Support for allergies, inflammation, viral load, and cancer, may all be found in mushrooms. The polysaccharides and proteins they contain make a big impact at the cellular level including stem cell activation, and production of new, healthy cells as needed.
2. Super “green” foods that contain concentrated chlorophyll such as Spirulina, Barley, Oat, Alfalfa, and Wheat Grass all contain two “star” qualities for immune health and anti-aging. 1. They help alkalize the body. This is important since having an internal pH that is too acidic can lead to numerous health problems. 2. They are nutritional powerhouses especially high in antioxidants.
3. Aloe has been used medicinally for thousands of years. It possesses powerful anti: bacterial, fungal, viral, inflammatory factors. At the same time the lubricating, hydrating and collagen building support is outstanding whether used internally or externally.
These 3 foods can be and should be consumed daily in order for you to feel the results of the immune support, and to see and feel the best anti aging results.
