As we get older, boosting our longevity becomes as important as losing weight. And nutrient-dense superfoods are a great way to add decades to your lifespan. Check out this post from Woman’s World highlighting the best superfoods to eat for a longer, healthier life. Hint: One is probably your favorite dessert!
Trying to eat better doesn’t have to be difficult, especially if you master a list of superfoods to eat more often. After all, we can’t expect ourselves to overhaul our diets completely, but as we get older, it’s important to think about what we can do not just for weight loss, but to boost our longevity to make sure we’re around to enjoy our lives for as long as we can. A list of superfoods–nutrient-rich food considered to be especially beneficial for health and well-being–is a great place to start.
So, what are the best superfoods for a longer life? Leading the pack is a favorite of many women: coffee. Even though many of us feel like we should cut back on caffeine, a large-scale study found that drinking coffee is associated with a longer lifespan and a reduced risk of dying from heart disease and certain other causes. In fact, compared with abstainers, nonsmokers who drank a cup of coffee a day had a 6 percent reduced risk of death; one to three cups an 8 percent reduced risk, and three to five cups a 15 percent reduced risk. That’s a lot of coffee!
But coffee isn’t the only item on the list of superfoods to eat for a longer life! Once you see which other nutritional all-stars made the list, you’ll probably be pretty proud of your current eating habits–or ready to head to the grocery store!
