Making it healthy into old age does not need a scientific degree or a supernatural panacea. Of course, it might sometimes sound like an overblown sci-fi storyline. It turns out that the key to living a long and healthy life is not actually a secret at all.
Foods You Should Eat If You are Over 50 | Everyday Health
According to studies, living well in old age requires a variety of lifestyle choices such as maintaining a social and active life, exercising, quitting smoking, maintaining a healthy weight, and eating the correct foods.
Which takes me to the topic of what sorts of meals are appropriate.
The appropriate meals are high in antioxidants, may help decrease bad cholesterol, and can help regulate blood sugar. These seven meals might be your elixir for avoiding chronic, life-threatening illnesses.
I will start with this one. This meal has been underappreciated for ages, despite the fact that it is a life saver right at our fingers. We were told a long time ago that beans are high in protein. What they failed to mention is that this meal is also rich in fiber and minerals such as potassium. It is exceptionally low in fat and salt, and it has no cholesterol.

4. Almond nuts.
According to Christiana Stiehl, almonds are nature's ideal snack. They are high in protein, fiber, and good fats. This may help you live a longer life. According to a research published in The New England Journal of Medicine, persons who consume nuts on a daily basis had a decreased chance of dying from any illness, particularly cancer, respiratory or cardiac disease.
5. Red or orange bell pepper.
6. Green tea.
Naturally, red fruits and vegetables are high in essential vitamins, antioxidants, and are good providers of vitamin A and B6. Bell peppers are strong in carotenoids and phytochemicals, both of which have anti-inflammatory and possibly life-extending qualities.
Last but not the least, my personal favorite.
7. Citrus fruits.
Green tea comes to mind when you think about reducing weight. Green tea, on the other hand, has the greatest degree of anti-aging effects. According to a research published in the British Journal of Nutrition, consuming just one cup of green tea every day reduces your risk of death from cardiovascular disease by 5% and your chance of death from any cause by 4%. Get yourself a cup.
