Dr. Ann Kulze: You know you can definitely use nutrition to advance the aging process but fortunately you can also use nutrition to slow the aging process down. And I’m in the business of teaching people how to take charge of there youth so I wanted to share with you what I think our five superstar anti- aging foods. The first is wild Alaskan salmon, now you can certainly get wild Alaskan salmon fresh usually a few months out of the year and get it frozen but unparticular find of can wild Alaskan salmon because guess what it’s available everyday on the grocery shelves and it really is a still from the economic stand point. Why is that special for again there are several features, first of all it’s exploding with Omega-3 fats which are the queen of the healthy fats, some of the different ways they consult the aging process you don’t want me to get into that because all night take off from the chair. The second thing is fill with vitamin D and people are hanging about of that vitamin D it’s so important for everything like you know not dying of like our major diseases but also you know looking good and nice scan and guess what? Very few foods natively have vitamin D; this is one that does, how much? A single serving will give you what we think you need over for the entire day. The other thing about a wild Alaskan salmon is a gift that D rich color and by the way red saka which is what I have here in my hand is my most recommended brand red saka. Why they get taste the best, it is the cleanest and it has the highest concentration of what makes it this color which is a very potent antioxidant called astaxanthin is like astaxanthin and believe it or not the fish feed on like algae that they are one that are making the astaxanthin and when then fish this wild Alaskan salmon feed on this things they get incorporated into there flesh so that’s would gives it that brilliant red orange color and help potent is that antioxidant, it is 100 times more potent than vitamin E. and again if you are trying to slow down an aging is all about decreasing inflammation, decreasing oxidation and improving blood flow and by the way all those things are entry related, so lots of antioxidant in here which means lots of anti-inflammatory a power and blood boosting power. The second anti-aging food superstar is walnuts and so these are walnuts and what a great anti-aging snack. You know a I’m not on the subject of nuts and, Dr. Ann you know which one are really, really the best for me they would be two and one would be of the two is walnuts. Why? What sort of mix them a step above the others is they have so much Omega-3, walnuts have more Omega-3 than any other nut but it’s not just the Omega-3 like all nuts, they got tons of vitamin E and they have other healthy fats, they have lots of minerals, they have potent antioxidants so try to have a walnut regular in your diet, they are great for combating aging process. What about freshly brewed tea? When I say that it can be green, white or black but it needs to be the real stuff. It can be in a bags like this can be loosely, the reason I want to do it is because I don’t if any easier way to infuse my body with putting antioxidant setting there and sipping on freshly brewed tea. There is a category of extremely putting antioxidant compounds literally like thousands of them, thousand of them running around in freshly brewed tea and I mentioned earlier oxidation is how we think most aging occur so that’s should be in two dose putting antioxidant and do it regularly because it’s slow aging. Another one is ginger root; you know all herbs and spices are—it’s crazy how good they are for you. Because again is the concentration of fatty chemicals they have and this ones really special for a couple of different reasons. First of all people like to wait taste and I juice now like every morning and what I think I do is to put a big a chunk of ginger root in my juice and
