Four Foods You Should Be Adding to Your Breakfast Smoothie Every Day For a Longer Life

Must Read

Your daily routine habits and, more importantly, your daily diet play an important role in deciding how long you’ll live.

Eating unhealthy foods regularly can put you at a higher risk of heart disease, cancer, and type 2 diabetes. In fact, eating an unhealthy diet causes approximately 678,000 deaths every year in the U.S.

According to a study, published in The Lancet, it causes 11 million deaths worldwide.

But we are not here to follow all this bad news, there’s good news as well.

A research paper published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, says that following a healthy diet can extend your lifespan and you can even decrease your risk of all-cause mortality by 56%!

On top of having a balanced diet, there are also many life-lengthening superfoods and the perfect ingredients for a breakfast smoothie.

Add some seeds to your breakfast smoothie

Chia seeds, flaxseeds, and hemp seeds are all packed with heart-healthy nutrients, including fiber and omega-3 fatty acids all helping to boost your longevity.

Numerous studies have found that adding these types of seeds to your diet can improve many heart disease risk factors, including inflammation, blood pressure, cholesterol and triglycerides.

Flaxseeds may help keep blood pressure and cholesterol levels under control, key markers of heart disease.

Avocado smoothie

Avocadoes are packed with monounsaturated fats that can help reduce heart disease and help you live longer.

They contain more potassium than bananas which is renowned for a healthy heart.

Potassium also helps the nerves to function and muscles to contract and helps the heartbeat stay regular.

It also helps move nutrients into cells and waste products out of cells.

A diet rich in potassium helps to offset some of sodium’s harmful effects on blood pressure.

Add Kale to your breakfast smoothie

Kale has fast become one of the most talked about foods in the health industry and when looking at its array of health benefits, its easy to see why.

Kale contains sirtuins which are a group of seven very unique proteins found naturally occurring in the human body.

These proteins act to regulate a variety of functions, including cellular metabolism, cell regeneration, and DNA expression.

Within this, they also help to reduce inflammation throughout your body, and more specifically, within your brain.

Blueberries smoothie

Rich in anthocyanins and pterostilbene’s, blueberries are becoming a critical component of a science-based longevity program.

Blueberries contain specific flavonoid molecules that fight DNA damage and slow age-related damage to brain cells.

In studying longevity benefits of various compounds, scientists often use fruit flies as a laboratory model of ageing, said Life Extension.

The health site continued: “What researchers discovered is that fruit flies live 10 percent longer when fed a regular diet containing blueberry extract.

“Not only do the fruit flies live longer but they also show improved levels of physical activity.

“These enhancements arise both from increased tolerance of oxidant stress and from beneficial changes in the way certain important genes are expressed.”

One way to easily incorporate fruit into your diet is to enjoy a daily smoothie.

Smoothies are incredibly easy to make and all you need is a blender and the ingredients.

All fruits have a positive impact on your health, so it’s encouraged to get creative.
