Aging is not a disease although many people think it is. The good news is that premature aging doesn’t have to happen. While no magic elixir exists to reverse this process, research has shown that certain nutrients can help slow the onset of visible signs of aging, can prevent many disorders, and can extend life expectancy.
Kale, parsley, green pepper, and broccoli – sources of vitamin C.
Spinach, asparagus, and carrot – sources of vitamin E.
