The more anti-inflammatory compounds – like omega-3 fatty acids, curcumin/black seed oil, garlic, ginger and magnesium you take in, the slower you’ll age. Spanish nutrition experts observed this after carrying out a study that indicates that a diet with a low dietary inflammatory index delays the decrease of telomere duration.
The experts calculated the duration of the telomeres in the blood cells of 520 Spanish citizens aged 55-88. Telomeres can be found in your DNA and work like a sort of molecular clock. The lengthier they are, the healthier you’ll be and the longer you may still have to live. The quicker your telomeres decrease, the quicker your process of aging runs.
